In ancient Egypt the Ankh, or Key of Life represent eternal life. I believe as a society we are developing technology at such a ferocious speed that our spiritual selves are being ignored, as we are turned into dull worker drones. By 'spiritual' I don't mean in any religous context, but in an understanding of ourselves context: who are we and what can we accomplish.
I believe by attaining higher states of consciousness we can start to address this problem and look at ourselves and then the world from a different perspective. To me the Ankh symbolises the path we must chose to correct our broken societies.
There are scientist who are taking psychedelic research very seriously and we must try to break down our prejudices towards it and move into a bold and open minded new world.
