That certain plants and drugs can produce high spiritual or ecstatic states has been established beyond question, whether or not these experiences are accepted as valid by the religions or governments of today. Through the expedient of consciousness-enhancing substances a class of "knowers" has once again arisen in society and it is receiving the same welcome as the Gnostics and other "heretics" received in the past: scorn, ridicule, and sometimes active persecution, from both religious groups and governments.

These chemically aided spiritual experiences are real; they are psychological facts that meet all the criteria of what is classically deemed a "religious experience". Religion finds this bitter pill impossible to swallow; governments declare it illegal and fill prisons with the "illegally religious" just as surely and irrationally as the Romans filled their jails with early Christians. The religious persecutions of the past have not left us; they have merely changed form.

Entheogenic drugs have the capacity to show us things that we otherwise cannot even imagine; they can reveal our kinship with all life and the universe at large; they can inspire awe, reverence, humility, and great love. Because some of them are also capable of inspiring fear and confusion or loss of body-consciousness, their proper use requires maturity, education, instruction, and guidance, as well as a safe and protected setting. They are not right for everyone and they can be misused, but no one has the right to say that they are wrong for everyone or to imprison experimenters and confiscate their possessions. The entire "War on Drugs" mentality is about as wrong-headed and misdirected as it could possibly be, yet governments continue to waste billions of dollars annually trying to force people not to alter their consciousness with anything but the inferior state-sponsored drugs.

The unprecedented reach and pervasiveness of the electronic mass media coupled with growing interest in the subject ensures that this trend will continue. Whether we approve of the situation is immaterial: there is no going back to the ignorance of the past. Let us therefore treat the situation with intelligence and compassion. The informed use of entheogenic, consciousness altering 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 predigested religion, and this is precisely the reason entheogens have been criminalized.

We cannot go back to being led around by the nose once the fullness of 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 is open. The cover has been blown off the Ark of the Covenant. Wisdom cries in the streets and shouts from the rooftops, once again trying to make herself heard above the din. Whoever has ears should listen. Whoever has a voice should consider speaking up, for the time of the end is near, as it always is in this brief life.

Let me testify in no uncertain terms: heaven is much closer, and far easier of access, than we have been led to believe. And it is worth the trip.


-Clark Heinrich, from the book Magic Mushrooms in Religion and Alchemy

These are friggin' cool. I love your material variations on a theme. And the fact that you take fractals and make them discrete objects is great. The sort of environmental fractals can be cool but they are difficult to wrap your mind around. These are much more engaging visually. Great work.
