***See below for a complete topic breakdown.***
Journalist, photographer, and artist James Oroc was born in the small South Pacific nation of Aotearoa. Since 1998 he has been pursuing and reporting on the cutting edge of extreme sports in more than 40 countries around the globe, his work appearing in magazines, films, and on MTV Sports. He has been a member of the Burning Man community since 1999, and he is also involved in the documentation and advancement of psychedelic culture as one of the first people to ever publically discuss the philosophical and metaphysical implication of 5-MeO-DMT.
His first book, Tryptamine Palace, is a quintessential read for those interested in psychedelic philosophy. It presents his theories on reality, God, quantum mechanics and 5-MeO-DMT that are present in Tryptamine Palace. In this interview, we scratch the surface of those theories but advance beyond the Tryptamine Palace and explore the topics of his most recent book, The New Psychedelic Revolution — the rich history of visionary art, modern festival culture, the rising popularity of 5-MeO-DMT, and his psychedelic philosophies on the nature of mind.
*** If you have noticed this write up is much shorter than normal, it is because I have prepared all the shows to release prior to my speaking tour in Europe this summer, and reducing the write-up was an essential means to achieving this goal. They will pick up again in the autumn. Check me out on tour!

A “web-based information portal dedicated to the endogenous psychedelic entheogens, DMT (dimethyltryptamine), 5-MeO-DMT (5-methoxy-dimethyltryptamine), their animal and plant-analogues, (including ayahuasca, yopo, ebené, and Bufo alvarius toad venom), and their influence on the emerging global Visionary Culture.
