Michael Pollan’s “How to change your mind” and theory of the entropic brain #happiness

I continue to explore the new world that opened to me. I heard that Michael Pollan’s ‘How to change your mind’ was a sort of Bible of psychedelics so I borrowed it from the local library (interestingly, it had a long queue of reservations). I consumed 414 pages within a week and I feel like I know everything I need to know, ever. It’s a very balanced and science based historic summary and experiential account of all things psychedelics. I was pleased to see multiple mentions of British researchers in the field. Below I share 2 quotes on the theory of entropy from a British researcher Robin Carhart-Harris that as a person who tends to overorganise and overthink I found really useful. Sometimes all we need is a bit more chaos, organised of course 🙂
