Journeys to the Edge of Consciousness

Take an animated journey into the depths of the human mind with Timothy Leary, Aldous Huxley and Alan Watts. This documentary combines stylish, minimalist animation with a rich, immersive soundscape to create a unique cinematic spectacle, guiding us through three psychedelic trips that changed western culture forever.

Sixty years later we discuss these historic trips with twelve leading current thinkers - including Gabor Maté, Graham Hancock, Dennis McKenna and Rick Doblin - asking the question: "What can expanded states of mind teach us about ourselves, the world and our place in it?"



Should I pirate this documentary? It sounds really good. I ripped off a Terence McKenna documentary once a long time ago and got in trouble for it. It made me think twice about pirating things... But I'll do it. Give me a few hours lol


Unfortunately this video does not have a download option on Vimeo. Only On Demand stream. My FireFox download video streams cannot capture it either because they have found a way around that as well. There is probably a way though that I am unaware of.


How did they know you ripped the Terence Mckenna one?

I wouldn't do it if it was watermarked or trackable in any way, someone else will do it sooner or later.

I think it's on Amazon, if that's any good.

Someone mentioned extreme download manager (XDM)

XDM is no longer maintained

Use youtube-dl which is updated weekly

I don't think youtube-dl can

I don't think youtube-dl can grab vimeo on-demand streams.

It can (or at least could)

I know a guy who knows a guy who did exactly that and uploaded it here.


It was a documentary called Cognition Factor. A lot of these people spend a lot of time working on their projects and then it gets pirated right away. I might have admitted to it, I can't remember. But most people who download a torrent wouldn't buy the DVD or stream anyways and are getting exposed to the information they wouldn't otherwise. So I still support pirating.

I will try the youtube.dl extension later. I have Journeys to the Edge of Consciousness in my Vimeo library.

HTTP Error 403: Forbidden

I was able to download a trailer for the documentary in mp4 format, but not the entire video. I input my username and password etc but get an error. It's a little tricky and I don't know enough code lol. I will continue to use youtube-dl though, it works quite well.

It needs the right URL

Sometimes you need to use the browser's inspection tool to find the right URL. It usually ends in .m3u8


I figured it out. YouTube-DLG is the way to go! All piraters should use this...
