“You should view the world as a conspiracy run by a very closely-knit group of nearly omnipotent people, and you should think of those people as yourself and your friends.” - Robert Anton Wilson
A couple of recent mainstream media stories tease the long awaited return of scientific research: LSD 'helps alcoholics to give up drinking'http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-17297714Your Brain On Psilocybin Might Be Less Depressedhttp://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2012/01/24/145731952/your-brain-on-psilocybin-might-be-less-depressed
Thanks, Bobby!As ever, LSD seems to work in a different way than other substances (replacing heroin with a methadone habit, for instance). According to that BBC article one dose has a positive effect on alcoholic behaviour for up to six months!It's also interesting to note that the psilocybin research implies a lessening of activity in a 'controlling centre' which seems to make people cling to 'reality' leading to OCD behaviour, anxiety and depression.Fascinating to me, that the casual language of The Sixties and after knew that the straight world was uptight, and needed to loosen up to feel happier with the world.
