...AND UNDERSTANDING 'MIND'

More people had started using LSD, & liking the new state of their minds...bringing 'individual freedom' & a sense of 'collective harmony'.
It's also a FACT folks...that modern Christmas traditions are based on ancient hallucinogen-mushroom-using shamans. Most of the symbols and icons we associate with Christmas celebrations are actually derived from the shamanistic traditions of the tribal peoples of pre-Christian Northern Europe.
Even 'magic' mushrooms were & are commonly seen in books of fairy tales, and are usually associated with fairy realms. Most major elements of the modern Christmas celebration, such as Santa Claus, Christmas trees, magical reindeer and the giving of gifts, are originally based upon the traditions of the harvesting & consumption of sacred mushrooms...Christianity being the 'great borrower Religion'…ALONG WITH the other 'Garden Of Eden' Middle-Eastern Religions.
The real story is that they were used by ancient peoples for insight and transcendental experiences.
Dr. Albert Hoffman, synthesized LSD from ergot...a fungus growing on Rye...in 1943. He had an out of body experience & a 'grand awakening' the next morning.
The 'Mental Health' Profession used it to tap the 'unconscious mind'...and accomplished more with patients in weeks then ordinary 'psychiatric' work in years. The 'ascetic setting' was most important...as Dr. Timothy Leary knew.
He became the 'great' LSD advocate & promoter of 'The fifth freedom'...where it should become a Constitutional Right...for anyone to have 'internal freedom', without 'Social engineering'...by governments. No wonder he would become labled as 'The most dangerous man in America'.
The CIA's experiments in 'bad environments' provoked bad reactions/'Trips'
…one was their setting up of brothels and observing 'clients' reaction to being slipped LSD by prostitutes. I mean!! Hostile 'settings' guarantee bad reactions.
Ken Kesey-author of 'One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest', a best seller, was inspired to write by LSD. He said 'IT' gave him the creativity/new Reality.
He…Kesey, 'turned on' more people to LSD in his 'Acid Tests' across America then the CIA and Tim Leary combined.
It was to become a 'Counter Cultural Revolution' fuel...which led to its' being banned by the government. The 'shift in consciousness' was profound.
So, the real reason LSD was banned...was because it 'enlightened' people, & caused them to 'think reflectively'. It released them from Cultural and social bonding and 're-imprinted them' into life style, philosophical & Religious rebellion changes.
Famous 'Hollywood Icons' such as Cary Granttook over 100 LSD 'Trips', saying it gave him more peace of mind & 'insights' than anything else.
Aldous Huxley-Author of 'Brave New World', and Allen Ginsbergthe Poet, advocated it's use for 'enlightenment'.
The problem for a 'controlling Society' was that LSD was not addicting, did not damage ones Genes, & could shake the foundations of society/culture.
Listen to the song 'White Rabbit'...the psychedelic anthem...by Grace Slick-to understand. LSD re-arranges 'what you thought….was Real'.
It shouldn't be left to the CIA or governments...or for The Establishment...to control 'you'. In the 60's/70-'s the youth of the world revolted...on LSD.
The 50's had been comfortable and 'CLOSED'. The 'Hippies' changed all that...and were a threat to 'The System', it's agents', & 'Flunkies'. They 'Dropped out'...and wanted to over throw the lies of Society, it's history, and control.
The BEATLES were proponents of the movement. Ralph Metzner-Ph.D,-an associate of Tim Leary...
