Jim Carey has prepared for a new role playing philosopher Terrence Mckenna by taking hallucinogens.
Carey expressed his desire to fulfil the role, making an observation on modern life saying:
“Much of the problem of the modern dilemma is that direct experience has been discounted and in its place all kinds of belief systems have been erected.”
The forward thinking actor spoke of his methodical approach in preparing for the role, saying:
“The deeper you go into the psychedelic dimension the bigger it gets. I’ve seen thing which no human being has ever seen before, and no other human being will ever see again.
I retreated to nature and I took five grams of dried mushrooms in order to prepare for this role”.
The film “True Hallucinations” starring Carey is about the perceived knowledge of time, life and the imagination.
In a world where drug laws are stricter than ever, it is refreshing for someone so high profile to be forthcoming about such a candid issue.
Carey told reporters:
“The real message of psychedelics, I think, is to reclaim experience and to trust yourself. Your perceptions are primary.
Your feelings are correct. Everything must constellate out and make sense and parse with what you know.
If you don’t start from that assumption then you are off center to begin with.
And the psychedelics will dissolve the cultural programming that has potentially made you a mark and restore your authenticity.”
