Graduation Speaker Admits WHAT?! (Video)

(TheIndependentStar.com) – Chris Pan, a social entrepreneur and investor, who gave this year’s commencement address for Ohio State University, has admitted that he utilized psychedelics while preparing his speech.

See a video of the speech in question below!

Pan, who is recognized as a social entrepreneur and investor, revealed that his address to the “60k grads” and their families was significantly inspired by what he referred to as “AI (Ayahuasca Intelligence).”

He also noted that he initially experimented with ChatGPT, but found it unsatisfactory.

In a post on LinkedIn, Pan clarified his use of Ayahuasca following an inquiry about its reliability as a source of information, explaining that the substance “enhances creative divergent thinking while decreasing conventional convergent thinking.”

He further substantiated his point by linking to a 2016 Springer study investigating Ayahuasca’s impact on creativity.

This psychedelic plant tea, indigenous to South America, has historically been employed by Amazonian tribes for various ritualistic and medicinal purposes, as detailed in a 2021 Frontiers in Pharmacology study.

However, it’s important to note that Ayahuasca can also induce severe hallucinations, anxiety, paranoia, and confusion, as stated by the Australian Alcohol and Drug Foundation, The Daily Caller points out in a report.

The active compound in Ayahuasca, Dimethyltryptamine (DMT), was prohibited in the United States under the 1970 Controlled Substances Act, with an exception carved out by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2006, allowing its consumption in tea form for religious practices.

During the actual delivery of the speech, which was streamed live, there was audible disapproval as Pan encouraged the audience to invest in cryptocurrency.

“Saving is not enough because inflation exploded after the pandemic, which is why everything got so expensive … I see Bitcoin as a very misunderstood asset class,” he said, highlighting Bitcoin’s decentralized and finite nature, which prevents government interference in its production.

Responses on LinkedIn to Pan’s speech further reflect the dissatisfaction among viewers.

One graduate expressed his displeasure at not receiving a more impactful speech.

Additionally, a parent remarked that the speech “came off as an infomercial and not an uplifting speech to send them out into the workforce.”
