“It was the first ever clinical trial into the efficacy of D.M.T.” – Nic (05:41)
“This is not about going to Amsterdamn for the weekend and getting fucked up, it’s much more serious than that.” – Brian (08:42)
“A lot of people don’t understand the sanctity of what we’re doing.” – Nic (09:12)
“This is going to take place in the pitch dark.” – Brian (16:44)

“For me I feel as if I’m preparing for a battle.” – Nic (24:23)
“Look at the great events in your life that changed you, they were probably very tragic and horrible moments, they were for me, and I got the most gain out of them, so if I have to do that then I’m ready to drink. Because not doing it will make me more anxious and more angry.” – Brian (27:57)
“You have got to pay the piper sooner or later, if there are these negative psychological patterns or spiritual wounds, I want them out now. I don’t want them to resurface when I’m 60 and too inflexible to deal with them then.” – Nic (28:22)

“If you could guarantee that on Monday night when we do this that on Tuesday morning you would have the answer to one question, what would it be?” – Nic (45:48)
“Where’s my direction for the next ten years, where do I need to go and what do I need to get done, that’s what I want to see.” – Brian (46:01)
