About


  Ancient Psychedelia: Alien Gods and Mushroom Goddesses, is the recent culmination of my life's work as an activist and  researcher.   Funds are for the publication of this book. 

  Visually rich with over 1000 images, it draws on vast fields of study and cross-referenced data. Written for a  broad audience, including those interested in psychedelic knowledge and  history, ancient goddess culture, and UFO phenomena, I address many questions that have previously gone unanswered through other  bodies of research and theory.  

From Author's Bio:  

   "In addition to references  from hundreds of literary sources, the author’s process of critical  analysis and interpretation is informed through extensive study of early  human cave art, ancient steles, artifacts and coins, and cross cultural  religious art including early Christian iconography. The reader is  taken on a journey to the beginnings of civilization, and then back, to  current times. 

  At its fulcrum, Ancient Psychedelia, deconstructs  the history of religion and spiritual traditions, and shares new  revelations, drawing the reader into the core of “The Mysteries”,  including: the presence of aliens in early history and mythology;  ancient magic and alchemy; UFOs and paranormal intelligence; sacrificial  rituals; old world fairy tales; and much more.  The role of the  mushroom and entheogens, such as DMT, is consistently and exactingly  identified as being in relationship to all other major subject matter in  Bempechat’s research.  

  Ancient Psychedelia offers a new  view on ancient history, spirituality, and religion; one that informs  and impacts our contemporary culture.  The reader is equipped to  critique these findings for themselves, and to uncover a new perspective  with implications so far reaching it will challenge the status quo of  “reality as we know it”.   

 Ancient Psychedelia is my magnum opus and contains secrets never previously revealed. This book is the true "Key to the Mysteries" for those die-hard truth seekers and researchers of esoteric and occult philosophy and other various forms of high strangeness. 

   When I realized I wanted to write a book and make a video, I  considered what it would take to do this correctly. I didn’t want to  generate another version certain hypothesis I had studied and pondered  for many years. I wanted to dig deeper into the existing research, and  see if there was something I had not recognized before. So I read and  re-read everything I could get my hands on about with respect to these  subjects I as already so familiar with. And then I went further into  fields that were less familiar to me including ancient world coins and  other artifacts, core tenants of anthropology, archaeology and the  history of certain key excavation sites, and cave art and early  pre-history.

Ancient Psychedelia : Alien Gods and Mushrooms Goddesses explores the  relationship between shamanistic societies, goddess worship,  sacrificial rituals, entheogen consumption, mythological deities,  alchemy tradition, fairy tales and UFOs. It traces the history of  humankind back to its earliest beginnings and demonstrates, step by  step, how humans evolved in tandem with their ongoing use of psychedelic  entheogens. The means to teach this is the research from the books,  along with images from coins, artifacts, steles, seals and Christian and  religious art of which I have built up a large database.

  The conclusions arrived at are  simple, shocking, and bound to be controversial. Equally so, they will  entertain and enlighten along the way, whether or not the reader agrees  with the final conclusions.

Risks and challenges

The work for this book has mostly been accomplished at this point in time. Over 100 books have been read for the research for this book alone, and the book has been written and is currently in its editing phase which I expect to continue for another 1 1/2-2 months. The DVD should be completed by the time of book publication. I don't currently foresee any delays or issues. Expected date is Nov. 1, 2019
