  • LSD

    Where was LSD coming from in the 60s? 70s? 80s? in England, and in America (if you know)? Do you know anything about LSD use today?

    That stuff creates the illusion of cosmic connectivity and a universal mind, if you know what I mean, and one wonders about a terriestial bureaucratic underground (deeply tied to speculative fantasy publishing in the 60s, and perhaps the Atlantic Record Corporation in the late-60s/early-70's/Ahmet Ertegun...) connected to a Urantia-Book-kind-of-cosmic-personality-ministry that superintends the distribution of that curious stuff?

    Dude, put the DMT pipe down.

    Terrence Mckenna did not die for your sins...

    The only thing that can help you now is copious quantities of one or more of the following: chinese food, sushi or whole loaves of bread. Oh yeah, and a big fucking Percodan!

    Orange sunshine streams through the windowpane as light...microdots are a figment of your imagination.

      Someone grab a tongue depressor and hold that boy's tongue down while I shovel in the mashed potatos.

      And have plenty of cheese cloths ready. Moses is coming down the mountain and he's hopping mad!

        When they had advanced together to meet on common
        ground, then there was the clash of shields, of spears
        and the fury of men cased in bronze; bossed shields met
        each other and the din rose loud. Then there were
        mingled the groaning and the crowing of men killed and
        killing, and the ground ran with blood.

          In the sixties, it started out coming from the C.I.A., so you have to wonder if they were connected to the resurgences in later years. Sure was a lot of it around during the Reagan years compared to now. Helped Sonic Youth and the Butthole Surfers develop a fanbase and stuff, but didn't seem to threaten to change the world the way it did in the sixties. It became much more in vogue to hide that you're tripping rather than wearing all the rainbow tie-dye stuff. 'Least that's what I've heard...

                LSD (or Lysergic Acid Diethylamide) was first synthasized in 1948 by Swiss scientist Dr Albert Hoffmann, while working for Sandoz Pharmaceuticals. The first use of "acid" in America was in consciousness research conducted by people such as Timothy Leary and Aldous Huxley, at Harvard, UCLA and Stanford in the late 1950s nd 1960s. In the 1960s, the US government also conducted experiments on mental patients and volunteers in veterans' hospitals. Ken Kesey, author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, was one of these early "guinea pigs".

                  I don't really trust chemicals that much ... as we're on the MM site, I can only recommend the natural way through MMs. And since we're quoting:

                  [i]DeForrest Kelly of Arden

                  It's raining cobwebs, stretching hours
                  into refracted gossamer showers.
                  Space invaders struggle onwards
                  Record winding ever downwards.

                  Poolballs melting, moving slowly
                  Join together - snooker holy.
                  All the drinkers talking Slovak
                  Head translating all the small-talk.

                  Lights are pulsing, time is bending
                  Silent faces - message sending.
                  It's raining cobwebs, stretching hours
                  into refracted gossamer showers.

                              This thread is trivia. Tim Leary. All you need to know.
                              What was his quote? "Tune in, Drop out." ?? I don't remember well. And why not?
                              It has never been in Jeopardy!, has it?
                              There is the possibility of having a permanently altered state of
                              consciousness from a drug "induced" brain lesion. Maybe some you know some people that fall under that category ?? Not to mention other dangers...

                              let's not forget an incedent that occured in my town...

                              Heaven's Gate.

                              Heaven's Gate mass suicide

                              I wonder what kind of conversation Tim Leary and Marshall Applewhite would have had?
                              Then throw Salvador Dali into the mix!
