use of entheogenic, consciousness-enhancing plants and drugs presents a
direct and powerful challenge to any system that seeks to spoon-feed the
masses with false ideals of nationalism, racism, sexism or pre-digested
religion, and this is precisely the reason they have been criminalized.
One does not go back to being led around by the nose once the fullness
of one's humanity is realized, nor to eating pap once the full pleasures
of eating are learned; besides, we need roughage or we fill up with our
own waste. Expanded consciousness is one genie
that can't be put back in the bottle and we're better off for it.
The cat is out of the bag.
Pandora's box lies open.
— Clark Heinrich,
"Last Word" in Strange Fruit
With religion-inspired hatred
on the loose, many see religion itself as a culprit for the September 11
troubles, and point to psychedelics - or entheogens, divine-generating
agents - as a means of bypassing religion to get to the wellspring of spirituality.
Because they produce the primary experience on which faith is inspired,
"entheogens prove that no intermediary is necessary," states Clark Heinrich,
author of _God Without Religion_ (yet unpublished) and _Strange Fruit_
(to be published in the US by Inner Traditions), a speculative history
about the role of the Amanita Muscaria mushroom in several world religions.
After his own drug-induced awakening, the late British Ecstasy advocate,
Nicholas Saunders, surmised that religions may very well have been invented
to explain entheogenic experiences.
