Thanks Slo

For the quote from Mr. Hofmann. All of us owe a large debt of gratitude to him. He gave us the soma of the gods and we launched a revolution to change the world. And, as Hunter S. Thompson said, "With the right kind of eyes you can look out into the Pacific Ocean and see where the wave peaked..."

Jerry bore the psychedelic cross Albert created for 30 long years. In the end even he couldn't turn the tide. Did we help enough?

what we are supposed to be....

"It gave me an inner joy, an open mindedness....... a gratefulness........ open eyes and an internal sensitivity for the miracles of creation. .....I think in human evolution it has never been as necessary to have this substance LSD. It is just a tool to turn us into what we are supposed to be."

-Dr Albert Hofmann, part of a speech given by him on his 100th birthday

Today marks the 70th anniversary that chemist extraordinaire Dr. Hofmann - on a hunch! - synthesized LSD 25 at Sandoz Laboratories for the second time in human history and accidentally absorbed an amount small enough to produce a couple hours of effects, which led him to intentionally take 250 mcg. 3 days later and take his famous bicycle ride home. "Thank you" seems so shallow......

My brethen, count it
all joy when you fall into
various trials.
Knowing that the testing
of your faith produces
patience.
But let patience have
its perfect work that you
may be perfect and complete,
lacking nothing.
