Psychonautica Podcast aired a fascinating talk by Michael Winkleman (co-editor with Tom Roberts of the scholarly collection, Psychedelic Medicine) from the 2008 world psychedelic forum called ‘Psychedelics and human evolution, a view from evolutionary psychology‘.

I recommend this talk as it covers the burgeoning theories concerning the evolution of the opioid and serotonin systems and how they correlate to human evolution.

Of course, research into the evolution of cerebral and sociological interfaces between consciousness and biology is vastly unexplored and ripe with wisdom-inspiring surprises.  Just think what we could learn about life and the mind from the endo-cannabinoid and dopaminergic systems, or the research into the roles of endogenous DMT and 5-meo-DMT, or the quantum geometries of neurological electrodynamics,  or the temporal aspects of consciousness that are so readily catalyzed by certain sonic frequencies and luminous stroboscopes.
