PROGRAM NOTES:

“There is so much more psychedelic use in this country than any of us, even those of us who think we know a lot, are aware of. . . . According to [the government], 23 million Americans have used LSD since it became illegal. And that figure, because I’ve been tracking it, goes up 600,000 a year, pretty much rain or shine. So there’s 600,000 people this year who are going to be taking, and that just deals with LSD, that doesn’t deal with ecstasy or ayahuasca or anything else. But there’s this growing, continual large number of people, and they tend to be better educated and brighter, and we do have research on that. So what I’m doing a lot with this book is say, ‘Hey, it’s OK to admit what is true, which is the person next to you at your work probably had some acid in their background just as you did.” -James Fadiman

Guest speakers: Myron Stolaroff, Humphry Osmond, & Al Hubbard

PROGRAM NOTES:

On October 30, 1964, Dr. Humphry Osmond, Myron Stolaroff, Willis Harman, and Al Hubbard took LSD together. The next day they discussed what was learned. This is a recording of that gathering, and it is the first of the recovered recordings from The Stolaroff Collection, hosted at Erowid.org.

“There’s a central power system, and here’s the source. And the guidance system simply involves getting the person as close as possible to that source. The closer he gets the more aware he is, the more he sees who he is, the more he sees that everything he does is really of his own making and his own creation, and the more he sees his total responsibility. Now it’s inconceivable to me that you could move toward that source without increasing responsibility. And to me, Leary has found a way of moving in that direction but not going toward it, because he’s obviously missed his responsibility level.” -Myron Stolaroff

“From our crowd I think very, very few people get off the beam the way I would consider Leary and Alpert are off the beam, for example.” -Myron Stolaroff

“[We should use these substances] in a way which will not simply allow us to become aware of what any decent mystical saints have been aware of for a long, long time, but to become aware of how to produce a rise in the social level of communication, which will, indeed, transform the species from a biological animal to a communicating animal, which is what Teilhard had in view.” -Humphry Osmond

“[The map of the noosphere] is not to be created by mucking up bits of the Book of the Dead and saying how smart chaps were. This is a fraud.” -Humphry Osmond

“When you most need help is when you least want it.” -Myron Stolaroff

“This is the life that I’ve seen: Live or die. Be intelligent enough to get along. Don’t walk in two places without knowing where you’re going.” -Al Hubbard

“The ten year delay in our work brought about through our struggle with NIH in Washington and through being unable to cope with a large and powerful power-system there has produced, it’s resulted in probably several million people being quite unnecessarily damaged.” -Humphry Osmond (November 1, 1964)

“You have to understand the specific risks that [using psychedelics] involves. Now the specific risk is that every person involved will be altered whether they like it or not. And that the result of this will, in a sense, alter every other relationship they have whether they like it or not.”

Guest speaker: James Fadiman

PROGRAM NOTES:


From the Mind States conference in 2003, James Fadiman gives an entertaining account of his early days in psychedelic research. The Mind States program that year had this to say about Dr. Fadiman:

James Fadiman, Ph.D. has been involved in both teaching and facilitating creative problem-solving with and without psychedelics for more than three decades. His experience ranges from early experimentation with Ram Dass and Tim Leary at Harvard to government-sanctioned legal research with Myron Stolaroff and Willis Harman at Stanford. He co-founded the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology where he now teaches, is the co-author of Essential Sufism, and has just released a novel, The Other Side of Haight.
