No, I’m not gone, but simply vacant in my online endeavors. I’ve been writing way much, a lot, nearly a whopping 90,000 words of much. Of which will soon be released here via a slow drip. To the main and most exciting point now!

We’ve previously explored psychosis and psychedelia extensively on this blog, so it with great interest that such a study is now available to partake in! The information below will fill you in on the introductory details. To partake, go to the link at the bottom.
