Last Show Recap

Psychedelic Drugs

Professor of creative writing at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Marjorie Sandor, talked about her latest work compiling stories from the deeply unsettling to the possibly supernatural and why we love tales that delve into our increasingly unstable sense of self, home, and planet. In the first hour, bestselling author Juan Enriquez discussed how man is in a different phase of evolution and the future of life on the planet is now in our hands.

Psychedelic Drugs

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - July 10, 2004
Host: Art Bell
Guests: Daniel Pinchbeck

Author Daniel Pinchbeck shared stories of his personal explorations with psychedelic drugs, ranging from transcendent to terrifying. Pinchbeck claims that experimenting with "psychic medicines" can lead people to different concepts of society and psyche.

One particular experience Pinchbeck recounted involved smoking DMT (diemethyltryptamine). In his vision, he entered a new reality filled with weird geometric patterns and strange symbols. According to Pinchbeck, this is a common experience among users -- they participate in a similar alternate reality when on DMT. Art suggested that DMT users visited a real place (another dimension), to which Pinchbeck concluded, "I felt it was as real as this reality."

Pinchbeck also spoke about Ibogaine, a drug that could potentially help addicts kick their drug habits, and suggested visiting Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies for more info.
