"Psychedelics are illegal not because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out of a third story window. Psychedelics are illegal because they dissolve opinion structures and culturally laid down models of behaviour and information processing. They open you up to the possibility that everything you know is wrong."
"Most atheists are as ignorant of other philosophies as the Christians they so abhor."
"You see, all I’m saying is minerals are a rudimentary form of consciousness, whereas others would say that consciousness is a complicated form of minerals."

Eye of Horus and Pineal gland cross-section comparison.
The Eye of Horus is the pineal gland as seen from the right side when halved. Is there a name for the eye as seen from the left side? Not that I’ve found. That part is supposed to go unnoticed.
Oh how patriarchy so desperately hates the monad.
CHOP IT IN HALF, BOYS! Shall we place the yin yang on a black background or a white one? Oh fuck it just draw a circle around the whole thing and no one will ask that question.
(The designation has everything to do with “right brain left brain” propaganda, for anyone wondering.)
The monad isn’t hated…I’m not sure where you’re getting the patriarchy in all this. Look up monotheism and you’ll find both monadic and trinitarian. The concept of the ‘monad’ or Monism has influenced every major religion and all the ‘theisms.’
But you’ll never see talk about how the thyroid gland possibly evolved from a ‘third ovary.’ and is in fact involved in ovarian cases and acts as a third ovary after a woman experiences menopause.
Also this whole thing of comparing symbols to body parts is silly, superstitious religious fanatics do it too (with body parts and food) along with people who ‘love’ science on a superficial level. Like here:
You don’t need a physical comparison of the pineal gland to know that the Eye of Horus symbolism is connected to the third eye (and is claimed to serve as protection against ‘the evil eye’ found in many religions).
OMG check it out, round fruits look like a woman’s boobs, how ‘bout them mangos?

chocolate balls look like poop
muffin tops look like muffins, i bet you’ve been eating too many of those
a poisonous plant looks the same as an edible one

"Our culture is hardwired with a Christian value system. Even if, like myself, you have never been a believer your mindset will still be shot through with this morality. Our deepest drives are distorted by an internal censor. Whether this is a bearded man sat on a cloud, or a sense of vague guilt will depend on your individual programming. Face up to it. Even if you are enlightened enough to be nodding along with what I’m saying you still have fetters on your freedom that have not yet been struck."
"People only see what they are prepared to see."
Gay rights do not exist.
Women’s rights do not exist.
African American rights do not exist.
All rights ought to recognized only as individual rights because all individuals deserve equal protection under the law. Only after we adopt this philosophy will we begin to acknowledge true liberty and freedom.
“The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.” - Ayn Rand
