Magico-anthropologist and author Carl Abrahamsson is on the show to both expand and deconstruct occult magic and make it accessible to the modern world.

So, in relevance to the themes of ATTMind we venture into the world of occult magic with a compass pointing towards a Jungian...

The Neurobiology Of Altered Traits | Rick Hanson Ph.D. ~ ATTMind 69

3/30/2018
More
A central topic of this podcast is our capacity to change our minds. I don't mean superficially – "Oh, actually yeah let's go see that movie instead." I mean a more fundamental change, our faculty for shifting our very sense of self and perception of the world around us. This type of change is not just an ethereal alteration of mental processes, but an actual redesigning of neural architecture. Our capacity to create such fundamental changes is due to our brain's ability to redesign its...

There are drugs in the bible and the most high were getting really high on 'em. ...
