All the usual caveats/concerns about experimenting with psychedelics. As always be wary of taking psychedelics without proper research. Also note buying drugs off the street has incredible risks - see What's in My Baggie?

How to fathom timelessness via psychedelics

Talk by Peter Sjöstedt-H

Quote:Benedict de Spinoza taught that the mind can enter a rare state of eternity, timelessness - not as a spirit enduring beyond the corpse, but as a mind collapsing into the eternal. How then should we treat time in our lives? What should time mean to us?

Philosopher ofmind and metaphysician Dr Peter Sjöstedt-H examines, through the lens of Spinozaism and psychedelic experience, our relationship to time.

The Speaker

Peter Sjöstedt-H is a philosopher of mind who specialises in the thought of Whitehead, Nietzsche, and Spinoza, and in fields pertaining to panpsychism and altered states of mind.

'Historically, we may regard materialism as a system of dogma set up to combat orthodox dogma...Accordingly we find that, as ancient orthodoxies disintegrate, materialism more and more gives way to scepticism.'

- Bertrand Russell
