Humanity is on a destructive collision course with itself.

We are destroying the planet that sustains us through climate change, pollution, and deforestation.

Not only that...

We are engaged in widespread conflict with one another, which results in devastating consequences for both human life and society.

Fear, confusion, and chaos have never been more prevalent and continue to spread on a global scale.

Technology and social media have further exacerbated division and discord among people, and many are now in a state of jingoistic hypnosis.

As if that werenโ€™t enough...

Powerful algorithms are deployed at unimagined scale and speed, without understanding their implications, by a privileged group of technocrats interested in maximizing profits through colonizing your mental landscape and seizing the helm of your psyche.

Bombarded by an endless stream of pings, notifications, and digital drivel, we find ourselves ensnared in a vicious cycle of distraction, anxiety, and compulsive screen-staring.

Perpetually tumbling down the rabbit hole of alarming headlines and social media chaos, this ceaseless assault on our senses sabotages our ability to engage in meaningful contemplation and self-discovery.

The modern information diet was deliberately designed by technology companies to create, exploit and profit from our addictions.

We are ALL high on that sweet Dopamine.

when u get a hit of that sweet ass dopamine meme
when u get a hit of that sweet dopamine through ur phone

...and after years of indulgence, the cracks in our collective consciousness are visible all around us.

The thing isโ€ฆ

Your life becomes what you pay attention to.

It is no coincidence that humanity is in the middle of a mental health epidemic.

Statistically speaking, this likely includes you.

Millions of people are suffering, yet our modern society has proven woefully incapable of providing the support they desperately need.

Often, the systems and structures we've built have been the silent contributors to this mass suffering.

Iโ€™m sure you can relate.

You see...

Human beings are influenced by paleolithic emotions and instincts and rely on outdated, medieval institutions.

To make matters even more interesting...

We have been granted divine technological capabilities at our disposal.

In a way, we are like toddlers armed with nuclear weapons.

โ€ฆand many of us are wholly unprepared for the incredible velocity of changes that are taking place in the world.

That MAY sound gloomy, but...

We think this is a great, unprecedented opportunity because we can piggyback on the same ubiquitous technologies to deliver liberation to those seeking it.

Our goal is to leverage media and engaging content to make individuals come to the realization that...

God, Guru, and Self are one.

We believe that many of the aforementioned problems are simply observable symptoms of a misunderstanding of our true nature, which is underpinned by the illusion that we are separate from each other and the universe.

You see...

The world is like a spiritual kindergarten, where millions of bewildered infants are trying to spell God with the wrong blocks.

The average human being experiences themselves, their thoughts, and their feelings as things that are separate from everything else in the universe.

As counterintuitive as it sounds, this sensation of separateness is an optical illusion of consciousness that actually keeps us imprisoned.

Like the saying goes, The gates of hell are always locked from the inside.

The natural result of freeing ourselves from this illusion can lead us to expand our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures, with the recognition that they are inseparable from us.

If a critical mass of individuals come to this realization, we believe the fate of humanity could be changed for the better at the same scale and speed we are annihilating ourselves.

The inherent human tendency toward stubbornness and resistance to change makes this a challenging endeavor.

But, we have some ideas to overcome those challenges.

We believe that psychedelics are powerful, effective tools that can aid us in this pursuit by helping individuals heal and break free from harmful conditioning.

It's not a panacea, certainly, but it's a damn good way to bitch slap you out of the collective unconscious.

Here's the thing...

The difference between bondage and liberation is wholly dependent on your mind ๐Ÿง 

Consequently, the quality of your life is determined by the quality of your mind.

Psychedelics are for your mind, as telescopes are for astronomy.

By getting a better glimpse into your mind, we believe you will be able to better understand your true nature.

We believe the world would be a more compassionate place if more people had access to the psychedelic experience because:

  • Psychedelics can disrupt rigid patterns of thinking and perception, allowing for new cognitive frameworks to emerge that could potentially expand an individual's worldview and philosophical outlook.
  • The phenomenon of ego-dissolution experienced with psychedelics could induce a sense of interrelation and interconnectedness with other lifeforms, potentially increasing feelings of empathy, compassion, and valuation of the natural environment.
  • Under the right set and setting, psychedelic experiences may occasion mystical-type experiences involving awe, unity and sacred feelings related to the nature of consciousness and our place in the cosmos.
  • Early research indicates psychedelics may hold therapeutic potential for certain mental health conditions like depression, anxiety, addiction and PTSD by allowing a re-scripting of ingrained negative thought patterns and liberation from emotional/traumatic residues.
  • The cognitive flexibility and creative boost associated with psychedelic states could potentially enhance problem-solving capacities and open-mindedness - traits which may aid in conceiving innovative solutions. Additionally, the novel perceptions and experiences induced can be an engaging recreational activity and source of fun and wonderment.

Psychedelics provide a unique opportunity to experientially reframe your understanding of yourself and your place in the grand tapestry of existence, catalyzing positive shifts in behavior and perspective.

Which, in turn, can lead you to a life of thriving instead of surviving.

However, as we both know, it is not in the best interests of existing institutions and power structures to make these life-changing medicines accessible to all of humanity, as it would threaten their survival.

Psychedelics are illegal, not because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out of a third-story window. Psychedelics are illegal because they dissolve opinion structures and culturally laid-down models of behavior and information processing. They open you up to the possibility that everything you know is wrong.
โ€”Terence McKenna

So, what is the best way to introduce millions of people to psychedelics?

We think edutainment is the best strategy.

What is Not So Profound?

Not So Profound is an independent, 100% subscriber supported email newsletter that publishes engaging content about spirituality through the lens of psychedelia.


I understand your concerns.

There are many publications and newsletters that write about psychedelics and spirituality, but none of them do it like we do.

Many of them are stale, uninteresting, or overflowing with drama and sensationalism.

They are like fast food, and we are like a home-cooked meal that your mother prepared for you out of love.

At least that's how our readers describe us.

It's time to forget about the drive-thru spirituality offered by everyone else and indulge in an artisanal newsletter like Not So Profound that warms your soul and makes everything feel right in your world.

Plus, none of our competitors could ever match our swag.

Speaking of swag...

Not So Profound is written & curated by Dr. D, a Professional Psychonaut and skeptic with a penchant for naughty humor.

Dr. D has a sidekick, Mustafa, who is a praying mantis and atheist, with a slick mustache and multiple degrees in nihilism from a now-defunct Online University.

The duo goes on off-the-beaten-path cosmic adventures together searching for wisdom, insights, and stories that educate, entertain, and expand your consciousness and nourish your soul.
