    1. Neil young said there are thousands of great records that didn’t get made cause of drugs.
      More than did get made.

      1. Asking someone how old they are is not a personal attack

        Its a highly relevant bit of information regarding the comment in question

        You need to relax before you wind up hurting yourself, big brother

          You had two comments on this post. One was asking the commenter if they wanted to fight. The other was asking personal questions. Both were off-topic and could easily be construed to be personal attacks.

          Keep comments on topic and constructive.

  1. I come here to learn about synths, not to celebrate the types of drugs that killed my brother-in-law a month ago… you should be ashamed of yourself…

  2. Wow man. That’s heavy. Turn on, tune in, drop out. I’ve been doing Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds ever since Brother Leary showed us the way.

  3. Tim sarà sicuramente negli annali della C.I.A. un ottimo agente non si dimentica.Come si può espandere qualcosa che non si possiede? Tutti i nemici numero 1 in u.s.a. sono al servizio della C.I.A. ieri e oggi.

  4. well, “Consciousness Expansion”
    once you realized that your brain creates your reality for you, its over.
    no more amazing things left over to discover.
    If you continue you just like to get stoned. 😉

  5. Psychedelic experiences were an important phase of my life. I wouldn’t trade those experiences for anything. I never let Leary or Huxley or anyone frame or define my experiences or understandings. I did however appreciate that Leary had a few practical words of advice for preparation as that journey began.

    Continued exploration of consciousness (sans “helpers”) formed my core, artistic and otherwise.
