    Jan, are you crazy!? If we don’t think now, we’ re all gonna die.

    This is my last attempt to contact you. If you don’t respond, I consider you lost and never contact you again.

    You are now dismissing the last glory of LSD and the sixties, the grateful dead.
    This is not a time to use LSD or other drugs. This is a time to think, throw your LSD out on the street, close the door and pray. Do you hear me, Jan? We are living in Sodom! Almost everyone is wicked!

      Um, have you ever heard the show? And this is your FIRST attempt to contact me. There never was any “last glory of LSD and the 60s” – it was a CIA operation. We’re not telling people to do LSD, but NOT to do LSD. I haven’t done LSD in many years. Not sure what you’re talking about. You need to start hearing the show so that you can see what we’re exposing so that you don’t make posts like this that are lost. Please at least hear the show you’re commenting on before you comment and make such nonsense posts. Wow.

        No, I haven’t heard the show yet, I am on a GSM internet connection and have a 5GB data limit per month, and am now already at 4GB this month. Maybe next month I will watch it.
        No, this was my second attempt at contacting you. I contacted you before about disagreements you had with someone in the psychedelic community years ago of which I cannot speak publically now.
        You think LSD was a CIA operation? Do you think I am CIA too? No way! Yes, CIA distributed LSD, as Ken Kesey already mentioned in an interview. They also tried to used it for mind control with no results and likely lots of innocent victims. The glory of LSD and the sixties is not their work! It is the work of Timothy Leary, Ken Kesey, The Bear, The dead (the warhors), Pink Floyd (Syd Barrett!), the hippies, and so on!
        What I am talking about is that you need to *think*, if you want to survive. You are suggesting the idea that thinking might be detrimental to our wellbeing! I tell you what detrimental to your wellbeing is: not thinking, not preparing for peak oil and the oil crash, and let society go to hell!
        How can you even suggest the idea that thinking might be detrimental to our wellbeing? Are you nuts?

        No, my post is not lost, I got a response from you. You have any idea *how* little people nowadays even normally respond to comments on websites, or on e-mail? Hope to hear from you.

          One addition: I watched the first 11 minutes now on free wifi in the train of the public transit network, and I appreciate your thoughts about Huxley and George Orwell, but my comments remain standing nonetheless.

          “No, I haven’t heard the show yet,”

          Then shut up.
