“In The Light Of Dying Stars” story recommended by Tim Ferris on psychedelic movement

To elaborate a bit, it is a beautiful story about the risk of capitalism highjacking the psychedelic movement.

A real world example would be the following : the company Compass Pathways trying to patent basic components of psychedelic therapy as basic as using soft furniture and holding hands.

Or companies trying to slow down general legalisation/decriminalisation to keep psychedelics therapy within the FDA medical pharma frame only.

The story is also a great illustration how ego can influence someone with good intentions.
