A.O.S.3's LSD/Van Allen Belt theory
    #552528 - 02/15/02 02:19 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

I copied this from Timothy Leary's book "Turn On Tune In Drop Out"
It's a theory about LSD and the Van Allen Belt from Augustus Owsley Stanley III, one of the first(and most notorious) underground LSD chemists. The first "LSD millionare".


"Oh man, how beautifully it all fits together. Dig, the first atomic fission occurred in December 1942.
The Van Allen belt is a thick blanket of electronic activity protecting this planet. What is the earth? A core of molten metals covered by a thin layer of soft, vulnerable, organic tissue. Life nibbling away, nibbling away at the rock beneath. All life on this plantet is a delicate network unified. Each living form feeding on the others, and being eaten. The Van Allen belt is the higher intelligence protecting earth from lethal solar radiation, and it's in touch with every form of living intellegence on the earth-vegetable, animal, human.
Now dig, the supreme intelligence sees that man has rediscovered atomic energy. Wow! We gotta stop those cats before they disrupt the whole living network. the only thing DNA fears is radiation. That's why the Van Allen belt is there.
Ok, now get this. Four months after the first fission, Hoffman accidentally, ha ha, rediscovers LSD, which is now psychoactive.
Hoffman first synthesized LSD in 1938, but it gave no hit. No turn-on. Now why is it that Hoffman handles LSD in 1938 and nothing happens and then in 1943, three months after atomic energy is released, he puts his finger on lysergic acid and gets flipped out? What happened? Did Hoffman suddenly get careless? Or had LSD suddenly been changed into a psychedelic chemical? Competent chemists just don't change thier handling of compounds. Hoffman's techniques are standard.
Now dig, The atomic fission in December 1942 changed the whole system of energy in this solar system. The higher intellegence decides to make a few simple changes in the electronic structure of some atoms and zap! We have LSD, and incredibly powerful substance that is the exact antidote to atomic energy. People take LSD, and flash! They get the message and start putting things back in harmoney with the great design. Stop war! Wear flowers! Conservation! Turning on people to LSD is the presise and only way to keep war from blowing up the whole system."

Interesting stuff!!

Dig, Isn't there also the one about LSD being discovered on the days the nazi's destroyed the Warsaw Ghetto uprising?

These are the mere ramblings of a tripped out mind. There is no causal link whatsoever to Albert Hoffman's LSD rediscovery and the nuclear testing.

The proof is in the pudding.

I'm not saying that there is. It's an interesting theory.

This is similar to my theory except that you replace the words "Van Allen belt" with "God".

I think that it's very possible that the process of life known as "God" created LSD to counter act the invention of nucular energy.

hey Swami, I dig.
As much as I'd like to believe this stuff, I'm gonna have to agree with you.

Lunacy.

On the other hand my experience with LSD is sorely lacking. Maybe I just haven't seen this particular connection yet.

Alright, I'll get ahold of some LSD and learn more about the Van Allen Belt, then I'll be more prepared for this subject. It just seems highly unlikely, though it is quite interesting.

To quote mckenna:  "What jumps out at you as coincidence is actually a set of relationships whose relationships to each other are simply hidden from you"

i only come with this quot because I figure you put no faith in mckenna's work :smile:
I can definately understand how  leary could come to that conclusion though, on LSD the pattern-recognition device that is the human brain can run quite amok...

Ulysees, I don't know shit about the Van Allen belt other than what you've just read. The reason it jumped out at me is because I do believe that "God"(us) may have brought LSD into existance to counter act the invention of atomic energy. To balance out our scientific discoveries with our conciousness.

LSD will not make you realize all of the sudden that the Van Allen belt is protecting us, but it may lead you to believe that LSD is a solution to our woeful conciousness situation. One of the first things I thought when I took LSD was that "this stuff could save the world".


BTW, Timeleech, I LOVE that McKenna quote!

I rekon I could of believed such a theory at such a time. I love the flow of language and colloquialisms in this piece Dig.
