"The characteristic property of hallucinogens, to suspend the boundaries
between the experiencing self and the outer world in an ecstatic,
emotional experience, makes it posible with their help, and after
suitable internal and external perparation... to evoke a mystical
experience according to plan, so to speak... I see the true importance
of LSD in the possibility of providing material aid to meditation aimed
at the mystical experience of a deeper, comprehensive reality. Such a
use accords entirely with the essence and working character of LSD as a
sacred drug."
by:
Dr. Albert Hoffman
(1906- ) Swiss chemist, discoverer of LSD

Reader comments about this quote:
Read Thaddeus Golas 'Love and Pain' and ponder on the fact that there is only consciousness behaving in different ways. I never used LSD but had a naturally induced experience of full consciousness and the spiritual revelations that go with it. Meditation is learning to swim 'in space', while LSD is probably like being thrown into the deep end, which would require some rapid adjustments.
