SAND18 US – Mushrooms, Mycelium & The Mycology of Consciousness – Part I

Video with

In the first half of an extended talk at SAND 18, Paul Stamets, author, mycologist, medical researcher and entrepreneur, gives a self-styled “immersion lecture” about magic mushrooms and mycelium. He tells us that terrestrial organisms have evolved to be interconnected with the mycelial web of life, and that we are its descendants. He informs us that many primates consume mushrooms, and mentions Terence McKenna’s Stoned Ape Theory as a possible explanation for the neurogenesis that resulted in the striking expansion of hominid brain size in the last two million years.

View Part II of this amazing lecture, where Paul addresses more specifically Psilocybe mushrooms.
