Albert Einstein, LSD, DMT, & Cocaine?
    #16166699 - 05/01/12 06:35 PM (2 years, 6 months ago)

I did not ask this particular question on wiki, but I found an answer here: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Did_Albert_Einstein_ever_use_drugs




Question: Did Albert Einstein ever use drugs?

Answer: Einstien's blood was tested after his death. The autopsy showed traces of LSD as well as Dimethyl-triptimene (DMT)

In 1955, Albert Einstein died from his heart exploding 'burst aortic aneurysm' which could have easily been caused by years of cocaine use in conjunction with his age at that time as cocaine users are found to have more than four times the risk of coronary artery aneurysms than non cocaine users as per the Journal of the American Heart Association.


Legit or total BS?

(Also, let me know if this is in the wrong place.)

“Everything is determined…by forces over which we have no control. It is determined for the insect as well as for the star. Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust—we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper.”
—Albert Einstein

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
The true value of a human being is determined primarily by the measure and the sense in which he has attained liberation from the self.”
Sounds psychedelic/DMT-ish to me :shrug:

He was definitely tapping into the well of original thought. Something very rare.

It's bs
His most productive years where 1904 and 1905...
And we all know when LSD was first made...  1938

I heard they found it in his spinal fluid! Just freakn bs.. Time scales are wrong... What was available and when...

Have read and heard it before... And other attempts to put drugs into the history of science
Most are false... Watson and Crick for instance... Again... Timing doesnt add up

Now... For Einstein, before  in 1903,  Coca cola was true to its name .....

i thought DMT was endogenous to the human body.  also, when you consume it from an outside source, isnt it metabolized in a short time?  if he did have excess DMT in his system, the longest trip i know of is from ayahuasca which is gone in 8 hours.  then again the pineal gland is supposed to dose you when you die so everyone in theory would be swimming in DMT at death.

also, i would add that probably no toxicologist would be looking for DMT or LSD in 1955.

After the discovery of LSD, it was being distributed to various academics around the world. I bet Sandoz still has the documents with lists of people that received it.

None of this can or has been proven. To speculate based on beliefs and statements he has made public is nothing more than egotistical, mental masturbation. To first equate psychedelic drug use with intelligence and open mindedness and then to secondly apply it to an extremely brilliant and successful individual who has helped revolutionize science is in my opinion, an uninteresting stance to take when contemplating his cognitive ability.

:whathesaid:.
Whether or not Einstein took drugs, it would be irrelevant to link it with his cognitive ability and findings. His personal philosophy can be argued as being of "enlightened" thought; but to suppose it must have come from drug use is to be ignorant.

I agree. When you make these tentative links, you fall dangerously close to suggesting that the drugs were the gateway to his amazing intellectual and philosophical understanding.

And if you think that, then you might go arrogantly forth and proclaim to be capable to tap into that well.

I ain't saying your no genius, but lets all have some modesty about us now :sun:

Err...  Watson and Crick published their double-helix model in 1953 (well after Sandoz began widely distributing in the science/psychiatric fields).

I must say that I agree korey, with respect to Einstein.  It is probably also worth noting that many of the rather reclusive scientists of very high intelligence tended to shy away from drugs and alcohol for fear of destroying their intelligence...  Feynman talked about it on a few occasions :shrug:

:2cents: :peace:

I didn't read the whole thread but I feel I have something to say here.  Some people are naturally creative as he was, and they don't need drugs.  Their minds are already set as if they used drugs their entire lives to get this creativity, but the truth is...everyone is different.  Our brains are more powerful than any drug out there.
I doubt he did drugs, but ofc I don't know.

JFC I wasnt suggesting that he was a mega-genius due to drugs. He really was tapping into original thought naturally. Im yet to come across a truly brilliant mind who displayed contempt for mind altering substances.
