Taboos can be both impediments to knowledge and storehouses of knowledge.
This two-part talk by Reverend Nemu, author of Science Revealed and the forthcoming Neuro-apocalypse, explores the taboos in place in the scientific community studying ayahuasca, and compares their usefulness to those in indigenous ayahuasca traditions.
Reverend Nemu’s fascination with all things apocalyptic began twenty years ago, whilst baiting Jehovah's Witnesses on his doorstep. He occasionally gives talks on ayahuasca and Santo Daime, on revelation in the history of science, and other wonderful things, which you can see here (http://www.nemusend.co.uk). He is the most compelling and optimistic apocalyptic in the jungle, and he is available for weddings and funerals.
