An Open Letter to Mr. Joe K. Adams


As a self-described "truth-teller" shunned by most, Lynn enthusiastically responds to Adams’ hypothesis that psychedelics attack defenses masking perceptual reality. She argues that while complete awareness hinders survival, some collective self-deception enables group action. However, hypocrisy causes tension. Thus, media revelations gradually expose inconsistencies in societal myths, increasingly triggering psychosis by revealing cracks in cultural delusions.
