Psychosis and spirituality consolidating the new paradigm 2nd edition
It’s more for those who have trouble convincing themselves through observation, thinking, and putting together circumstantial evidence alone, those who need a sudden spoon feeding of “experience.” They might get something out of ayahuasca / with the risk of getting the wrong things.
But ideally it should only be a door opener, and once convinced, they should now resort to logic / reasoning to figure out the rest, or at least go towards esoteric training / meditation to reacquire more stable and safe forms of such states.
Not to mention, what afterlife research, aliens, and metaphysical beings suggest about there being another reality behind the curtain.
I think the flat Earth theory is disinformation meant to distract and keep people limited to lower dimensional thinking instead of thinking hyperdimensionally or metaphysically.

Like I said, the flat Earth proponents are good at coming up with reasons that tend to fall apart when examined, only to come up with new ones as those previous ones are explained away, only to repeat the cycle further and further.So I think the main problem is that people who aren’t ready are using it too much and too often, and furthermore are being fleeced or misguided by predators (or self-deluded leaders) capitalizing on the ayahuasca trend.
This also means that yes there are some who can handle it, who are hooked up with the right shamans, and who therefore come away with a net positive effect from it all, but I think they are in the minority and others may end up doing more harm than good.
