    Awesome. What’s the conference?

    Any chance it’ll turn into a podcast episode?
    Art is Nature in the flask; Nature is a vial thing.

    None of these "major figures" are rambling loons, on the contrary they are quite academic. There is little room for direct experience. Don't forget that there is a large scientific psychedelic community out there that are doing a lot of research to make psychedelics legal, or in other words make it "medical". It is very important work, because if psychedelics become a mainstream option for treating depression, addiction and other kinds of psychological issues then we are going to see a new world. No doubt.

    The research/studies show spectacular results, and if I was Big Pharma I would be worried.

    They would not be interested in this... we are talking about psychedelic research... and I guess what I will present is going to be the most mumbo-jumbo presentation of them all. LOL.

    In other words, if psychedelics don't get legalized, it's all your fault!!!

    Seriously, you've got it right. It's story telling at it's finest. Reduced to a few PowerPoint slides. A coherent message that stitches all three subjects together will be needed. It's a fairly tall order but I'm sure you will manage.

    In regards of the grail I believe it comes from Celtic legends, the Cauldron of rebirth, the mead of Goibniu and the mead of poetry.

    Horn of plenty, Cornucopia, Golden Horns of Gallehus, Gjallarhorn, Tibetan Skull Cup.. often the cup in all these cultures around the world (and there are more) is a symbol of eternal life, drink and cross into other realms, wisdom, power, healing... etc...

    So you see... long ago, in the times of the pre-civil world we lived under the influence of shamans... across the globe... and as we know there is one easy way to drink Soma, Ergot, Ayahuasca and other substances... you need a cup...

    Anyway that is somewhat along the lines I am going.

    Jesus and the Cup, well that is cultural appropriation. LOL.

    I have decided to decline the offer to speak. More important events will happen in my life on the same dates... things I prefer more than holding a talk... there is always next year...
