In my recent thinking I’ve been emphasizing the idea that looking for evidence for visionary plant usage in antiquity is less important than looking for evidence for the intense mystic-altered state in antiquity.

It would be far better, more precise, more powerful, and more to the point to look for evidence for enlightenment in antiquity. Evidence for entheogens is useful in part; evidence for intense mystic-state experiencing is useful in part. But a far more interesting and compelling goal is evidence for enlightenment in antiquity, evidence for the rational, mature, structured knowledge about determinism/fatalism and self-control cybernetics (i.e. enlightenment as defined simply and clearly by the egodeath theory, even if no ancient thinker produced a system as clear and straightforward).

–––

Better still – evidence for the whole progression of insights that characterize structured, rational enlightenment: from the egoic operating system, to the breakdown of the egoic operating system in the light of the mystic state sensation of timeless determinism/fatalism, to the realization of the complete nullity of the will, to the transrational leap outside of determinism/fatalism, to the reconfigured, transcendent control system.

–––

When we are studying historical evidence for mystic experiencing we have to be clearer about whether the evidence is simply a sign of the mystic cognitive state or whether the evidence is a sign of the full enlightenment that comes with full and repeated experiencing in the mystic cognitive state.
