“The following creative prose, Psychedelic Healing: The Spiritual Polishing of a Battle Fatigued Paratrooper, is a culmination of collaborative writing experiments designed to uncover noetic experiences. We define the noetic as deeply insightful moments of knowing that are life-altering but difficult to describe. The writing experiments, intended to elicit these moments, evolved into a method to collect sensitive data around military war trauma and the ritual use of psycho-active substances to heal from those traumas.”
