Psilocybin: The Answer To Mental Illness

Psychoactive entheogenic compounds such as psilocybin, which is present in 200 species of mushrooms, is a substance already naturally present in the matter of the human mind.

Of course, entheogenic compounds are suppressed by the pharmaceutical industry “studies” and sanctioned against by the powers-that-be; naturally occurring substances cannot be patented or reliably centralized as they occur in nature.

The decentralization of the human mind.

If entheogenic compounds became mainstream for medicinal use, the very lucrative psychology & counseling industry would go bust (or take a big hit), the huge SSRI drug industry (worth 16.8 billion dollars by 2020) would go under, not to mention that psilocybin can erase the effects of brainwashing by erasing fears and anxiety, boosting empathy and assisting to dissolve negative phenotypical neurological imprints; thus pushing back many years of costly social engineering — the shadow government’s worst nightmare is the decentralization of the human mind.

Works like a “surgical intervention”.

Yes, really. A five-year study of the drug suggests it could work “like a surgical intervention” for mental illness.

Other psychedelics, such as DMT, also have a similar effect in reforming priorly ingrained neural structures, an article from Reset.me states:

“When any stimulus enters the brain, the brain tries to understand it based on previous experiences,” the video says. “This pattern is like a shortcut, activated every time we face a similar situation.” That’s why trauma or other powerful events can make such an impact when they occur early in life.

The architecture of trauma in the brain.

If you are attacked by a dog as a child, for example, your brain might automatically associate the experience with any canine encounter, causing you to fear dogs for the rest of your life. “We might even react adversely to a distant bark,” the film states. Even if you can logically recognize that every dog is not going to be a threat, your initial reaction could still be one of programmed fear. And if events are repeated with the same result, the patterns only reinforce their connections, building up like scar tissue.

That’s where psychedelics can help. “Ayahuasca hyperactivates the entire brain region where we store and process emotional memory, often uncovering long-forgotten memories,” the video says. “This hyperactivation enables the conscious part of the new brain to temporarily override previously entrenched patterns, allowing new connections to be made.”

Memories can then be reevaluated and experiences addressed with more distance from the reflexive reactions to previous trauma. For example, an ayahuasca journey could allow the person who is afraid of dogs to break the fear’s hold on their brain and move past the negative encounter.

“Ayahuasca users typically describe having emerged with new perspectives on past experiences and deeply rooted patterns of behavior,” the film concludes.

Similarly in psilocybin, brain-imaging studies have shown that the substance targets areas of the brain overactive in depression.

In depressed or traumatized people the connections between brain circuits in the “sense-of-self” region are too strong, the neurology is warped and they become dysfunctional, as the brain is an adaptive organ — under certain traumas it rewires itself into a rut, for some people fetal trauma means they live their lives accustomed to a personality and social attachment style that is maladjusted.

Psychedelics loosen these “sense-of-self”, overly self-conscious neural connections and create new ones and/or restore lost connections — psilocybin could provide intense relief and change the neural infrastructure from one of imbalanced self-defeat, to one of renewed balance.

Psilocybin boosts connectivity in many areas of the brain while slowing down areas associated with depression and stress. Graph illustrates.

The Lancet reported that psilocybin mushrooms were able to lift the severe depression of all twelve human volunteer participants, even though they had been struggling with the disease for an average of over seventeen years and despite that fact that none of the subjects had found relief with multiple rounds of standard anti-depressant medication.

This is a powerful substance that has the ability to totally shift human perception.

It’s no coincidence that many users of psilocybin often claim to see the world completely differently post-use.

I spoke to one psilocybin user who claimed the following:

“I have social anxiety but now there has been an increase in my comfort level while conversing with other people. I tend to be pessimistic and self-averse, but lately optimism and self-compassion have been major themes in my perception.”
