"Deliberate provocation of mystical experience, particularly by LSD and
related hallucinogens, in contrast to spontaneous visionary experiences,
entails dangers that must not be underestimated. Practitioners must
take into account the peculiar effects of these substances, namely their
ability to influence our consciousness, the innermost essence of our
being. The history of LSD to date amply demonstrates the catastrophic
consequences that can ensue when its profound effect is misjudged and
the substance is mistaken for a pleasure drug. Special internal and
external advance preperations are required; with them, an LSD experiment
can become a meaningful experience."
by:
Dr. Albert Hoffman
(1906- ) Swiss chemist, discoverer of LSD
