A beautiful, profound, and passionate documentary by Simon G. Powell; Author of Darwin’s Unfinished Business, Metanoia, and The Psilocybin Solution. This documentary will be a joy to watch for Psilocybin lovers and informative for those who have still not been introduced to this mystical fungus.
After graduating from UCL in 1992, Simon G. Powell suffered an extended bout of ‘mushroom fever’ brought on by excessive psilocybin use. After this ‘mushroom fever’ subsided, he was left with a curious case of chronic biophilia. This soon developed into chronic gaiaphilia. This condition, which turned out to be permanent and quite stimulating, led him to write a number of unorthodox books – including The Psilocybin Solution and Darwin’s Unfinished Business. He also felt compelled to write and direct two radical film documentaries: Manna and Metanoia.

I know these natural entheogens are much better than big pharmas treatment drugs, vaccines and other destructive meds
Being a model 1956 I have done some and it’s a trip and a half…not for everybody that being said I also tried peyote buttons (cactus) wich are much more powerfull believe you me.
These tiny mushrooms were harvested for the ”market” old hippies like me would camp out and gather them it takes about seven pounds of fresh pick mushroom’s to have one dried pound.
But those day’s are way behind me.
Psilocybin undoubtedly helps humans access higher spiritual states of consciousness on earth. As earth is a lower and denser form of experience, mostly physical, psilocybin can help humans get back in touch with the truth, that is, that everything in the universe was created by the Spirit of the Lord God, and at their core, that is what humans themselves are made up of — as everything is — of Spirit. As humans continue to evolve those that see the truth will be able to begin to transcend and go between heaven and earth at will, free of the limits and laws of this world… psilocybin could serve as a useful tool to move us in that direction
I think the world would be a lot better place if everyone would do a little too much mushrooms like this guys.
Loved it; great art. The homemade quality is a plus; seems more wholesome and true that way. Overblown flashy, cheesy fakery doesnt mix well with this subject.
clean air and country over lots of money? stupid druggies..
terrible viewing. just some guy that likes mushrooms and gets tripped out by science.
Good enough documentary, dismissing science almost immediately at the beginning of the movie was ridiculous though, much of the info in the movie is scientific in nature. what about the big bang isn’t beautiful? We are the product of the physical laws of our universe, after billions of years of atoms interacting with each other. Nature, and its wisdom are simply the laws that govern us.
excellent ….a must see for every human being.
It’s so true and people haven’t realised yet that we’ra already living in paradise,so what do we wait for?
Great documentry 🙂
Very thought provoking documentary
I liked this film. Reminded me of my mushroom experience. I totally saw fractal patterns in everything and saw how everything was connected, to the point where I couldn’t tell where my hand ended and my water bottle began. I do agree about the misleading title. Would have liked to learn more about mushrooms. Great job though, especially considering he also made the music to go with this.
well I think its a great film!!! and totally in line with my take on life. this planet is a miracle and really we dont need to create anything as its already there, all we need to do is use it sensibly and wisely and sustainably.
what a great documentary. If only we could all think like this guy, heaven would be here on earth.
This is a beautiful, eye opening, and incredibly passionate. It made me cry. I think that the world is the most beautiful thing and its a real shame that people do not see it that way.
same old stuff that folks have been talking about from 1960’s counter culture-back to the earth activists to native people much before that, to a character in a Chekhov play circa 1900. rehashed ideas not infused with any new notions, told in a pretentious, less than inspiring manner.
an old person
Not really about mushrooms, more about the guys personal take on life and nature. It’s not a bad documentary but if you are looking for something specifically about mushrooms this is not it. Thanks
Expected it to be more about psilocybes. No new information here. Wouldn’t reccommend it. 5/10…and that’s being kind.
have you made a documentary before?
That question has nothing to do with anything. People who pose such questions represent the bottom rung of the intellectual ladder. Just because one has not done something doesn’t mean they are not entitled to comment on it.
Have you ever built a car? Think you can recognized when a car is no good? I think you can, and I think you are entitled to say so just as Hammerstein is entitled to their comment.
