Psychedelics, Creativity and the Problem of Influencing Culture

What is creativity? It's a question that has been asked for centuries, with no clear answer. Some say it's the ability to come up with new ideas. Others claim that it's the power to make something from nothing. And still others argue that creativity is simply seeing things in a new way. Whatever definition you choose, one thing is clear: creativity is at the heart of art, culture and innovation. So what happens when psychedelics are introduced into the creative process? How does this influence our understanding of creativity and culture? In this blog post, we'll explore these questions and more. Stay tuned!

Psychedelics and creativity have a long history together. In fact, many of the world's most famous artists and musicians were known to use psychedelics in their creative process. Some of these include:

  • - Paul McCartney

  • - The Beatles

  • - Led Zeppelin

  • - Bob Dylan

  • - Steve Jobs

These are just a few examples, but the list could go on and on. So what is it about psychedelics that makes them so conducive to creativity? There are likely many factors at play, but one key reason may be because psychedelics allow us to see the world in a new way. They help us break out of our mental ruts and explore different perspectives. This can be incredibly valuable when it comes to creating new art or coming up with new ideas.

But it's not just artists and musicians who can benefit from psychedelics in the creative process. Anyone can! In fact, there are many examples of people who have had breakthroughs under the influence of psychedelics. For instance, take a look at this quote from inventor Steve Jobs:

"Taking LSD was a profound experience, one of the most important things in my life."

This is just one example, but it illustrates how psychedelics can help us tap into our creativity and come up with new ideas.

So what does all this mean for culture? Well, as we mentioned earlier, creativity is at the heart of art and culture. And when you introduce psychedelics into the mix, you are able to retrieve artifacts of creativity that can introduce to you their new ideas & the ability to take out your heart, cleanse it and give you fresh new blood. Psychedelics can help shift the dominant paradigm in culture, so it is important to understand how they influence creativity and what are some of the potential applications for psychedelics in creative culture.

It's clear that psychedelics have a profound impact on creativity and innovation. And while there are certainly risks involved with using them, the potential benefits are too great to ignore. We hope this blog post has given you a better understanding of psychedelics, creativity and culture. Stay tuned for future posts where we'll explore this topic further!
