Christmas is magic.
Christmas is transformative.
And since we're dropping two episodes on the psychedelics, science and shamanism the week of Dec. 25, I keep wondering if everyone's favorite holiday curmudgeon didn't smoke DMT on that fateful Christmas Eve.
Because what happens in "A Christmas Carol?"
Why, a self-centered old miser barricades himself in an empty house and experiences a ghostly visitation from a dead friend. Next, three outlandish spirit entities arrive and take him on a mind-rending journey through time and space.
At the end of that journey, Scrooge re-engages the world with a profoundly increased sense of openness -- which brings us to DMT.
