This month we are taking a real close look at microdosing :-)

In this article from statnews.com, they take a look at a Dutch study that found that microdoses seem to improve convergent and divergent thinking, two forms of thinking that influence creativity. 

Nevertheless, it had no real effect on the problem-solving, rational-thinking, and abstract-reasoning ability called fluid intelligence. 

According to one psilocybin microdoser: “It sharpens all the senses as if the frequencies of all of your atoms and energy field are raised a little bit and are being slightly more conscious.”

The Anti-Authoritarian Architecture of Dance and Rave
.

..

Very interesting article about Dance and Rave and how it is by nature anty anti-authoritarian and how it will never threaten or hurt another human being, therefore making it very loathed by those who are in search of power. 

The individuality behind dancing and raving is also intertwined with togetherness, and this is why the elite hates it.   It celebrates sovereignty and unity and increases the awareness of the nature of the human spirit.  

The article goes on to define a RAVE (radical, audio, visual, experience) and how the experience is like a multi-sensory orgasm, and more importantly, all negative judgment and social anxiety is kept out of the dance floor. 

There is also a suggestion that without the experience of dance, everyone would be led by the culture of violence.  It is also an escape from the pressure of the system, at a rave, you can ventilate your repressed anger and symbolically rage against the system.
