Those On A Return Trip

I found out this morning that Augustus Owsely Stanley died in a car crash last year. In 1967 my friend, James Taylor (not the singer) gave Keith and I two doses of Owsley’s latest creation. One was a new Orange Sunshine, and I believe the other was STP. I conclude this, because people said they could not move on STP, which was our experience. Unfortunately we three intrepid Berkeley Hobbits discovered this just after we dropped and climbed this treacherous rock at McLure’s Beach, where I feel and put a deep gash in my hand. The dose we took was very powerful, and came on with a bang! I saw my two friends walk into the sun, and I lost my footing. We could not stand up. It took us twenty minutes to crawl down the rock. I had to be helped because I was going into shock. I was a bloody mess. I felt like I was being taken down from my cross. This, scene, had a bad affect on James and Keith. James took me into the ocean to wash my wound, but we were hit by a large wave, and I was soaked – and cold! The sun was setting. It was February. The car was two miles away. No one could walk to the car, even to go get help. I died! No helicopter flew me away to the hospital. I am tired of being demonized and punished for what happened to me.

“Hahahaha. I met Owsley once, at Millbrook, he dropped off his first try at STP. After the “trial” session with STP, he ended up reducing the strength to a fourth. I was there for that session, but there were only 10 tabs, so I took “only” a thousand mics of the pure liquid Sandoz. Hahaha, I was the only one able to stand up after 6-7 hours. Great night. I had started with training wheels,BTW, gently guided my first time.”

Four months later I find a piece of paper in Jame’s I Ching. There is a list of names under this title;


The supernatural person I was when I cam back to life told members of the Brotherhood WE had done much damage to an ancient place known as heaven, that needed to be mended. I will post on this trespass so that WE can take the next steps to God-realization. Note the photo of Meher Baba on Richard Alpert’s wall. This is before he became Ram Dass.

There is an epidemic of Alcohol Abuse that is resulting in many deaths, and millions of ruined lives. Thousands will end up hospitalized, and mentally ill. The two most diffiuclt things I have ever done, is come back to life, and get sober.

Owsley Stanley (born Augustus Owsley Stanley III, January 19, 1935 – March 12, 2011) also known as Bear, was an essential and transitional personality in the development of the San Francisco Bay counter-culture. His early activities spanned the Beat-era years of Ken Kesey’s Merry Pranksters scenes, but he played an equally important role during the explosion of 1960’s Psychedelia culture. As a brilliant and eclectic crafts-person, he became best known simply as ‘Owsley’ – the paradigmatic LSD “cook” (underground chemist) – a magician-like figure. Stanley’s inventive spirit was not limited to chemistry, either. Under the professional name of “Bear”, he was internationally celebrated, becoming an iconic figure (producer, engineer & artist) to psychedelic rock band the Grateful Dead’s international fan “family”, and still honored among subsequent generations of jam band music fans.
Bear rose to prominence, in part, as an early soundman for The Grateful Dead, a band he met when Kesey invited them to an Owsley Acid test party. Bear’s technical prowess stimulated the band’s developing interest in the electronic, acoustic and mystical properties of sound. By 1972 the band had developed a reputation as the touring audiophile experience. As their sound engineer, Bear frequently recorded live tapes behind his mixing board, and helped “The Dead” become the first performers since Les Paul to custom-develop high-fidelity audio components and sound systems. Soon, legendary “Dead tours” had evolved around gigantic “Wall of Sound” stacks of Stanley-designed equipment, highly innovative feats of audio engineering.[1]

Stanley was the scion of a political family from Kentucky. His father was a government attorney. His namesake and grandfather, A. Owsley Stanley, who was a member of the United States Senate after serving as Governor of Kentucky and in the U.S. House of Representatives, campaigned, amongst other issues, against alcohol Prohibition in the 1920s. Another relative, William Owsley, also served as Governor of Kentucky in the mid-19th century.

Stanley died after an automobile accident in Australia on Saturday, March 12, 2011,[4] not Sunday, March 13, as reported in most publications[6][7][8][20][21] (a widely propagated error stemming from the initial family statement, which was written on Sunday, stating he “died yesterday” being released to the press on Monday). The statement released on behalf of Stanley’s family said the car crash occurred near his home, on a rural stretch of highway near Mareeba, Queensland. He is survived by his wife Sheila, four children, eight grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

In Mirkwood, A Novel About JRR Tolkien (Steve Hillard, 2011), a fictional character named “Osley” is modeled loosely after Owsley Stanley and is described as a fugitive from the 1960s and the “Henry Ford of Psychedelics.”

Part 1 of 10 and hour of Owsley talking about the coming Ice Age. Bear moved to Austrailia because of a recurring dream, his intelligence shines and on this pleasant summer afthernoon by Kesey’s pond he took a walk about in the land of physics and and cycles and what a long strange trip it’s been. Thanks Bear thanks foe giving us the key to our doors Thanks meet you and Jimi in the next world we got a date! part 1 of 10,

Topic: Legalizing LSD for use in psychological therapy
General Purpose: To persuade
Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience that LSD should be legalized for psychological therapy.

Thesis Statement: LSD is a very powerful hallucinogen that has been considered by many as a very powerful tool in psychological therapy.

Preview: I will discuss what LSD is, LSD history in therapy, and the psychological problems it helps with.

Organizational Pattern: Motivated Sequence Design

Attention Material: How many people have heard the Quote “Turn On, Tune In, and Drop Out”? Timothy Leary, an ex Harvard professor, who was consider one of the greatest minds of the 60’s and considered the “father of LSD”. Turn On is to realize the different stages of consciousness and what triggers these stages. Tune in is to interact peacefully with the world. It means expressing your own perspectives on life, spirituality, morality, etc. Drop Out is to “detach one’s self from involuntary or unconscious commitments. In Flashbacks from 1983 they described “Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out” and said “Unhappily my explanations of this sequence of personal development were often misinterpreted to mean take acid and abandon all constructive activity””.

Revealed Topic: LSD is not just a drug that hippies in the 60’s did, but is a powerful tool studied and proven to help some sex and alcohol addicts.

Credibility material: I have a great passion for proving that some things the government have told us about drugs are not completely true.

Audience Analysis: Many Americans today are trying to change their lives for the better, but some cannot commit even through therapy, but with LSD in a controlled environment with a doctor can be very beneficial for people with a wide array of problems

Thesis Statement: LSD is a very powerful hallucinogen that has been considered by many as a very powerful tool in psychological therapy.

Preview: I will discuss what LSD is, LSD history in therapy in the past, LSD history in therapy in the present, and the psychological problems it helps with.

Transition to Body: First lets take a look at what LSD is.


I. Main Point #1: Since many people use therapy to benefit their lives, LSD could be very beneficial to some, but LSD is illegal and many people are afraid to take it because of what they heard about LSD.

A. Webster’s Dictionary defines LSD (Lysergic Acid Diethylamide) a chemical compound used in the study of mental disorders and as a psychedelic drug.
1. Not only can LSD be misused, but can help us advance into a series of deep thought, self realization, and realization of traumatic experiences
B. I will not debate that with any drugs, LSD can be misused, but we deal
with that daily with alcohol, cigarettes, and prescription meds, but all there are regulated by the US government.

1. According to The Justice Department “Individuals of all ages use LSD. Data reported in the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse indicate that an estimated 20.2 million U.S. residents aged 12 and older used LSD at least once in their lifetime. The survey also revealed that many teenagers and young adults use LSD–742,000 individuals aged 12 to 17 and 4.5 million individuals aged 18 to 25 used the drug at least once.”
2. They also describe LSD
a. “Some LSD users experience a feeling of despair, while others report terrifying fears–of losing control, going insane, or dying.
b. LSD users often have flashbacks, during which certain aspects of their LSD experience recur even though they have stopped taking the drug.
c. In addition, LSD users may develop long-lasting psychoses, such as schizophrenia or severe depression.
d. However, LSD users may develop tolerance to the drug, meaning that they must consume progressively larger doses of the drug in order to continue to experience the hallucinogenic effects that they seek.

II. Main point #2: LSD therapy was on the verge of becoming a powerful in psychotherapy until the government considered Timothy Leary, the most dangerous man in America and shutdown all research on LSD.

A. The incredible potency of LSD and the fact that infinitesimally small quantities could profoundly alter mental functioning of otherwise healthy volunteers gave a new impetus to speculations about the basically biochemical nature of endogenous psychoses, particularly schizophrenia.

1. It was repeatedly observed that microscopic doses of LSD, in the range of 25 to 100 micrograms, were sufficient to produce changes in perception, emotions, ideation and behavior that resembled those seen in some schizophrenic patients.
2. The possibility of simulating schizophrenic symptoms in normal volunteers and of conducting complex laboratory tests and investigations before, during, and after this transient “model psychosis” seemed to offer a promising key to the understanding of psychiatry’s most enigmatic disease.
B. Also, LSD proved to be extremely useful in self experimentation by mental health professionals.

1. In the early years of LSD research didactic LSD experiences were recommended as an unrivaled tool for the training of psychiatrists, psychologists, medical students, and psychiatric nurses. The LSD sessions were advertised as a short, safe and reversible journey into the world of the schizophrenic.
2. It was repeatedly reported in various books and articles on LSD that a single psychedelic experience could considerably increase the subject’s ability to understand psychotic patients, approach them with sensitivity, and treat them effectively.
