Everyone should post their questions here. We will go through them and select the best. The chat will be heavily moderated so that we don't have any disruptions.

Sounds like a great opportunity!

More practically i would like to know what are the required areas of expertise/future directions for research with entheogens in his opinion, so that we, the changing generation, can accumulate the right knowledge to be prepared...
I would like to ask it directly so, is it possible...how will the chat function??

Great idea?, really, you goys rock!!!!

In reply to:

This is exactly why this chat has to be fully moderated ladies and gentlemen.


Good luck

I have to say that I'm sad to see the Shroomery turn this way. Heavily moderated? Fully moderated? Right.

Even here we are without freedom.

Everyone will be able to join and watch. The chatroom will be set +m so that only those with ops will be able to speak. I would love everyone to be able to ask questions themselves but that would get too crowded with redundant questions and negative comments. If you would like, you can PM myself or DreamMatrix your questions.

Oh my, you do have the wrong end of the stick.
This is a one off opportunity to chat live with Dr. McKenna at the shroomery.
Shall we open it up and let everyone chat all at the same time? That would not work, we want it to go as smoothly as possible. If this works well, we have future guests planned, as equally exciting as Dr. McKenna.

Please keep this thread for people who would like to ask Dennis a question, another thread is still open for comment here



Good luck

I've got 2 questions I'd like to ask:

1) It has become apparent to me, and many others, that there is a new flush of interest in research pertaining to psychedelics & hallucinogens. Many people are currently attending college, and many of these people are very much interested in being involved with such research.

Dr. McKenna, would you please give this body of people some advice, some tips, on how one can get started in these research efforts academically? How would you recommend someone begin a "career" in psychedelic research?


2) The Island Foundation (www.island.org) is putting much time and effort into establishing a "sanctuary" where research of psychedelics and hallucinogens can be looked at under many lenses. Such disciplines as Psychology, Chemistry, Sociology, Botany, Anthropology, Jurisprudence, and many others are planned to be open areas of experimental research with respect to such compounds.

Dr. McKenna, do you know of the Island Foundation and it's efforts? If so, would you see yourself being involved in its efforts?

>> All users who would like to ask questions, post here.

Many congrats to all of you who made it possible. Well done.

I would like to ask some questions by myself on the chat, but if that's not possible, I hope that it will be possible to watch it.

Before setting my questions I would like to ask if its okee to translate the whole conversation to Greek and post it in my Greek psychonaut's page at http://www.kykeon.com.free.new.net - the site is a personal effort to wake up Greek people about Entheogens.

Questions:
1) "The mission of the Heffter Research Institute is to conduct research of the highest scientific quality with psychedelic substances." What will you say to those people who think that those substances alter a psychonaut's mind in such a way that eventually, take a leading role and "force" the psychonaut to overestimate their power? How can you persuade them that those substances can really improve humans and it is not a result of someone who is emotionally addicted to them?

2) Do you think that Entheogens, Entactogens, Empathogens and Hallucinogens should be used by humans ONLY as tools for exploring their minds and improving the way they live, or should they ALSO be used as a psychological self-treatment against the every day's anxiety and tension, in form of entertainment or dancing?

3) Do you agree with Mark Geyer, on testing hallucinogens on animals?

4) With which substance do you personally feel more comfortable to work with and why?

5) How can we react against governments' actions such as "war against drugs"? Do you think that we should protest in a massive way or should we remain silent and work so as to make the system collapse by itself?

This is my first set of questions.

Thank you
