Simon G. Powell
After graduating from UCL in 92, Simon G. Powell suffered an extended bout of 'mushroom fever' brought on by excessive psilocybin use. After his 'mushroom fever' subsided, he was left with a case of chronic biophilia compounded by chronic gaiaphilia. He was compelled to write a number of unorthodox books, including The Psilocybin Solution and Darwin's Unfinished Business. He also wrote and directed two documentaries: Manna and Metanoia. Simon discusses the experience and the message of the psilocybin mushroom. We’ll talk about Earth intelligence and its connection to human consciousness. Then, Simon refutes Jan Irvin’s research on the secret history of the magic mushroom and Gordon Wasson’s involvement with the CIA. He also comments on John M. Allegro’s mushroom cult theory.
