The whole thing is interesting, but the part I thought people here at the DhO would appreciate starts at 53:00.

Trying to map the experiences of the people in the piece to the MCTB stages is interesting, and I'd love some more perspectives from some people who I respect.

Looking at the paper linked...
So out of Neuroticism, Extroversion, Openness, Agreeableness, and Conscientiousness, psilocybin only affects Openness, which in their terminology is something to do with imagination and aesthetic appreciation.

That sucks, I'd rather improve the other four!
