We are on a spaceship; a beautiful one. It took billions of years to develop. We’re not going to get another. Now, how do we make this spaceship work?

    Kids on LSD


    I've been doing a lot of talking lately about LSD. Its been a while since i have done it and i am ready for it again.

    perhaps there was a big bust which, consequently, has all but dried up the LSD supply for all of the us.

    the government should open LSD up for research again. i think some very, very interesting studies could come of it in an actual lab environment, rather than carelessly testing on soldiers.

    Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out

    or are we still afraid of that?

    HOLY JEEZ that kid is more evolved than some of the college aged individuals i know. Sometimes i wonder if there's a technological equivilent that kids of the 21st century are tripping out on, and if there were, i think the closest it comes is VIDEO GAMES.

    THIS is what a 12 year old from the year 1984 (named Jarish) said in an interview about video games:
    By comparison, pinball “is fun but it belongs to the real world
    . . . it’s always the same.” Jarish describes his favorite video
    games as “crazy and weird,” not of the real world.

    [from Sherrie Turkles Video Games and Computer Holding Power]

    BUT in the end, i don't think there's anything quite like the LSD. i bet if Jarish were were dosed he would see the world as one giant video game and love it.

    and in contrast... cocaine has become so prolific that it is considered by many as "the new weed," more socially acceptable in new york than smoking.
