Graham Hancock and The Sacred Vine

“Fingerprints of the Gods” author Graham Hancock explains why all politicians should drink Ayahuasca 10 times, the gruesome Aztec history behind his new book “WarGod”, why he took Ibogaine to gain closure with his late father, and how Joe Rogan is just an all-around cool dude.

“You said that all politicians should be required to drink Ayahuasca 10 times before taking office.” – Brian (00:46)

“All across the world we have a venal class of dishonest, self-serving bureaucrats who are using the power we give them to oppose themselves upon us.” – Graham (01:52)

“You have to understand that we’ve had more than 40 years now of massively financed propaganda called the ‘War on Drugs’.” – Graham (03:10)

“In a way it’s a very Orwellian world where language is being used against us. It’s almost impossible to approach the issue of ‘drugs’ without immediately linking it to the notion of ‘abuse.'” – Graham (04:47)

“Do we as adults have the right to make decisions about what we put in our own bodies and what we experience with our own consciousness without reference to the powers of the state or must we seek permission from the state in order to explore our own consciousness?” – Graham (05:17)

“I find again and again you get these instant knee-jerk reactions. ‘Oh they’re talking about a drug, this isn’t be for me. They must be dirty people.'” – Graham (08:37)

“I don’t believe I would have written that book if I hadn’t had this nudge from this curious plant ally called cannabis.” – Graham (13:37)

“I don’t do things by half-measures. I was smoking a very great deal of cannabis for 24 years.” – Graham (14:10)

“During those Ayahuasca sessions whatever intelligence spoke to me directly and made it very clear to me that my journey with Cannabis had come to an end.” – Graham (15:33)

“It’s astonishing that one plant intervened to stop me working with another plant.” – Graham (19:20)

“There are all kinds of ways to challenge ourselves. Some people do it by climbing a mountain or scuba diving. The most profound and challenging ordeals is to drink Ayahuasca. It is in a way the ultimate adventure.” – Graham (24:06)

“I want to find out about your new book. Can you talk about it?” – Brian (45:30)

“There is very clear documentation of the sacrifice of 80,000 human beings over the course of 4 days so the entire city was filled with human blood.” – Graham (49:58)

“The demonic realm got involved in the human world and said. ‘We’ve made things really bad in Mexico already, how can we make things worse?” – Graham (51:20)

“The 22yr old Graham Hancock had an awful lot to learn.” – Graham (59:42)

“Iboga is the root bark of a bush that grows in Central Africa.” – Graham (1:00:53)

“It’s a sacred duty to see a loved one through the transition and it’s also a tremendous gift that the loved one gives to us, the opportunity to learn from it.” – Graham (1:05:23)

“The one thing I’m glad about is that I did have the opportunity to tell my Dad that I loved him.” – Graham (1:06:58)

“If you were really a tough guy you’d take Iboga and Ayahuasca at the same time.” – Nic (01:08:28)

“The active ingredient in Ayahuasca is Dimethyltryptamine. I’ve done some work with pure D.M.T. as well, I’ve done 11 journeys.” – Graham (01:08:48)

“Did you get stoned with Joe?” – Nic (01:17:10)

“Joe is such a lovely, wonderful human being with an incredibly open and inquiring mind and just very very gentle and very very intelligent and I definitely got high on the conversation.” – Graham (01:17:55)

“I’ve really enjoyed this conversation, time has really flown, it reminded me of my conversation with Joe Rogan. Nice, relaxing, positive, enjoyable feeling.” – Graham (01:20:40)

The Malinalli story with Hernan Cortes was invented by the spaniards to put down the new mexican civilisation along with christianity. The intention was to destroy the psyche of new mexicans by the “abandoning foreign father and the mother betrayal paradigm, deeply ingrained in mexican consciousness. I agree this was a spiritual battle first and foremost.

Excellent talk. I’ve never done any drugs in my life of any kind but i will arrange for ayahuasca at some point in my life. I wonder how it would be for a psychopath or a sociopath to have an ayahuasca experience, my feeling is that not very good and maybe lethal. I think the Aztecs were wise and gnostics but when the migration happened with huitzilopochtli and the arrival (foundation) to tenochtitlan they converted to mexicas (from the nahuatl word mexi = sun) cult sun, thats when the downfall and their devious ways started. This happened over 13 generations… Read more »
