Being a staunch promoter of freedom, free software, the GNU and Open Licensing, in order to ensure free and open exchange of psychedelic information, I propose the Open Psychedelics Definition as follows:
Open Psychedelics aims to promote freedom of information and access to information about psychedelics and related research, and to dispel negative stereotypes and misinformation about psychedelics. By following the principles of open-source software and the Free Software Foundation’s freedoms, Open Psychedelics seeks to create a more informed, supportive, and inclusive community around psychedelics and their potential benefits.
The concept of ‘Open Psychedelics’ is based on the principles of open-source software and the Free Software Foundation’s freedoms. Just as open-source software is freely available to anyone who wants to use it, Open Psychedelics aims to promote freedom of information and access to information about psychedelics and related research.
Open Psychedelics supports the free flow of information about psychedelics and related research, without any restrictions or barriers. This includes access to high-quality, accurately researched articles and resources that are openly available to anyone who seeks them.
Open Psychedelics supports honesty and transparency in all aspects of research and reporting on psychedelics. This includes the promotion of ethical standards and informed consent in all research and psychotherapy practices that involve psychedelics.
Open Psychedelics believes that psychedelic experiences should be available to anyone who desires to engage with them, free from government interference or restrictions. This includes supporting the legalization of psychedelics and the removal of all existing legal barriers to their use and research.
Open Psychedelics supports open experimentation with psychedelics, both for personal and scientific purposes. This includes encouraging the development of safe, effective, and evidence-based protocols for the use of psychedelics in psychotherapy and related fields.
Open Psychedelics is committed to the principles of open-source and open access, and will make all of its resources and materials available under creative commons or similar licenses. This includes supporting the development of open-source tools and technologies for psychedelic research and psychotherapy.
Open Psychedelics recognizes the value of community-driven research and encourages collaboration and sharing of information among members. This includes promoting respect for the diverse experiences and perspectives of individuals who use or study psychedelics, and creating a supportive and inclusive community for all.
Furthremore, in order to be able to use “Open Psychedelics” as a stricker, any organization establishing themselves as a Psychedelic company or group, must adhere to the following tenets. (Organization is any party, person, or entity able to engage in psychedelic discourse).
