One in a long line of holding posts for a link to the subject of psychedelics (Peyote, Mescaline, LSD, etc.) and their role in enlightenment and the study of consciousness. [Link via Ant at robertpirsig.org] [See also Timeline 1960, and Peyote, and Funghi.]
This is a review of Albert Hofmann, who as creator of LSD was also a pioneer in this area, and has now lived beyond the ripe old age of 100. I wonder what the queen would say in her telegram (if he wasn’t a Swiss resident that is.)
“Dear Mr Hofmann,
Many happy returns.
One wonders what one might consider to be the secret of one’s long life ?”
HRH, etc … 🙂
Post Note : Sue Blackmore attended the celebration and wrote this piece for the “THES”. Interestingly part of the discussion is on that to which he attributes his longevity.
