The talk looks at modern research on how psychedelics affect the human brain and consciousness. It focuses on the psilocybin mushroom and examines key scientific findings on its effects on humans. The talk goes into a degree of detail about the short- and long-term effects of psychedelic substances, and seeks to outline the potential these substances have in medicine and self-development. Simeon Keremedchiev comes from a legal background, but his interest in different scientific disciplines and human consciousness led him to attaining a degree in Psychology. He is currently involved in the development and launch of a comprehensive online informational platform, directed at self-development, human consciousness and conscious living. Simeon’s work gravitates around the genetic potential which lies within the human genome and our innate ability to unlock it.
