Who is a good doctor? Doctor Dolittle and Doctor Livingston, I presume. Why are they good? Because they provide service. Who is a bad doctor? Doctor Jekyll and Doctor Frankenstein. Why? Because they worked for themselves.
We all have dark sides that we’ve repressed, imprisoned, or forgotten. These natural aspects of us could become strengths if they were given support and understanding. Our 21st century personalities continue to lock our dark sides in 19th century asylums.
The “new sanity” of psychedelics could be all for the better. It’s about time that we healed the dark sides of our nature. Can we help Jekyll control Hyde and find Frankenstein’s monster a home?
