Description of How to change your mind by Michale Pollan ePub
“How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence” is an amazing, informative, and inspiring book to anyone interested in science, plants, and psychedelics or to anyone with a scintilla of curiosity about how the mind works. Michael Pollan is an excellent writer who became a psychonaut while researching this book. You’ll learn about the messy history of psychedelics, Pollan’s own experiences with various psychedelics, and what it might mean for the future of medicine, humanity, health care, and the concept of reality. He combines a factual history of psychedelic compounds, the current state of research and a cast of colorful characters to create an informative, entertaining and easy to read work. The title of Michael Pollan’s book is a double entendre, and sets a precedent of multiple meanings that fills the pages within, as the class of drugs known as psychedelics that he tackles in this book are so marred by cultural baggage, uncertain brain chemistry, and potential mystical experiences that it is a miracle Pollan’s explanation of them is so concise. This book is divided into 6 distinct chunks: the modern psychedelic renaissance, mushroom ecology, the ’50s, and 60’s research, Pollan’s own trips, the brain on psychedelics, and psychedelics’ medical potential. With the possible exception of the ecology section, all of the chapters feel quite necessary to understand the cultural, spiritual and medical significance of these drugs.
Highlights of the book: The many colorful characters who laid the groundwork for psychedelic research. The terminal cancer patients who with the help of psychedelics managed to find supreme love and even gratitude in the face of what seemed like lonesome death sentences. Admittedly non-spiritual Pollan, who is surprisingly open to the consideration of non-materialistic explanations of psychedelic experiences, including his own trips, which he describes with poignant detail. Finally, “How to change your mind” is a fascinating look at the science of psychedelics and the research surrounding their use in the treatment of depression and other brain disorders, the psychological ease and comfort of terminal cancer patients, and the disruption of rigid thinking. With his characteristic precision and expert reportage, Michael Pollan tackles a somewhat controversial subject with care, occasional humor, and curiosity that separates fact from fiction about these often-mysterious drugs. He blends science, memoir, history, and medicine and sums it all up with a good bit of participatory journalism and an examination of human consciousness. Superb, compelling, informative. We highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the subject, and especially for those who are suffering from chronic psychological conditions like depression, anxiety, bipolarity, addiction, obsession, compulsion, etc.
