    Dear David.

    Words can’t describe how thrilling it was for me to read your book “New Science of Psychedelics” introduction during (instead of, in fact :) work this morning. Never have I felt more connected to a writer before, as like all my psychedelic trips were somehow guided by your mind.

    This year and the past one have been really amazing for me. I’ve had my first experiences with both psylocibin and DMT, and my life has quite changed.

    I’ve lost 30 kgs in the past year and a half and completely changed my diet, my perspective and my taste.

    I don’t know why, but hating nationalism, instead of nurturing it, like my whole country seems to agree it’s okay and the feeling of interconnectedness (a word I didn’t even know existed) were 2 traits of my personality I couldn’t freely discuss, as society has a different opinion on it. And I can clearly record FEELING this interconnectedness for the first time on my heaviest psylocibin trip, 3 months ago. I just kept repeating it in my native language. And there they were, both ideas on your book.

    The best part was when I read you reccomending readers contact writers, something I have done with my latest favorite books, as I mailed both Dennis Mckenna and Tony Wright for their works. And both replied me. How awesome is that.

    My name is Rodrigo and I am a 22-year-old student from Brazil. A place where the consciousness revolution has only hit those with a particular interest for foreign internet literature instead of soccer, barbecues and boose. Not that I had not had my experience on that, but it just feels so empty to continualy do so on and on and on..

    Having the possibility to contact you is awesome. Here we don’t have teachers or parents do discuss all you have said. And I kind of been lacking some verbal guidance lately.. As all we can have from our parents is that drugs are illegal and we should avoid them at all costs.

    So, I decided to send you this e-mail as you have gave me a wonderful morning. A morning to strentghten my beliefs.

    Thank you very much.

    PS: If you need help translating your work to portuguese, please let me know.
