Albert Hofmann, April 17, 1943

April 17, 2018

“… affected by a remarkable restlessness, combined with a slight dizziness. At home I lay down and sank into a not unpleasant intoxicated-like condition, characterized by an extremely stimulated imagination. In a dreamlike state, with eyes closed (I found the daylight to be unpleasantly glaring), I perceived an uninterrupted stream of fantastic pictures, extraordinary shapes with intense, kaleidoscopic play of colors. After about two hours this condition faded away.”

Two days after, he would take the world’s most famous bicycle ride.

March 31, 2018

I recommend listening to the whole thing, but the most memorable part begins at the 34-minute mark. This was a watershed moment. The man had his flaws, and his decisions on Vietnam were disastrous. The effects are still with us. But you can feel the depth of his pain. It looked like we were going, truly, to overcome, but five days later, everything would come crashing down.
