54:42 Myron: “You know, if you’re going to work with these materials, meditation is a marvelous supporter because as you use the materials you open your consciousness more, and that opens your meditation more. So then your meditation becomes more effective and more fulfilling. So it’s a growing process.”

  1. Sorry Lorenzo got cut off. With your vast experience have you had any negative effect on your nerevous system? Deepak said it was very bad on this part of the body. I have taken it several times but was just wondering?
    Thanks for your response……luv your site what a great host you make one of few who tread this path with great respect and humour.

    Cheers Pete Sydney

    [COMMENT by Lorenzo: I’m now 70 years old and as far as I can tell my use of psychedelics has not had any negative impact on my body. However, I never tried to push the envelope past normal limits and as I grew older I only worked with natural, plant-based, entheogens as opposed to the chemicals (often of unknown origin and purity).]

  2. Hi Lorenzo,
