From shroom to spirit

NewScientist reports in 'Magic mushrooms really cause 'spiritual' experiences' that:

'“Magic” mushrooms really do have a spiritual effect on people, according to the most rigorous look yet at this aspect of the fungus's active ingredient.

About one-third of volunteers in the carefully controlled new study had a “complete” mystical experience after taking psilocybin, with half of them describing their encounter as the single most spiritually significant experience in their lifetimes.'

Well, the 'academy' is finally catching up with the wave of the 60s from Leary, Castaneda, RA Wilson, Tart, Grof, and many others...

The spirit is ripe for activation: the triggers may only be different this time.
