"I believe with the advent of acid, we discovered new ways to think and it has to do with piecing together new thoughts of mind. Why is it that people are so afraid of it ? What is it about it that scares people so deeply? Because they are afraid that there is more to reality than they have ever confronted. That there are doors that they are afraid to go in and they don't want us to go in there either because if we go in, there we might learn something that they don't know. And that makes us a little out of their control"
"You're introduced to LSD... Unless you've taken some other drug, for instance marijuana or something then it's an altogether new thing! you can actually have, um, a religious experience, which can be more important than reading the bible six times, or becoming pope or something like that, you know?"
"LSD hints to us that there is a, an area of the mind which could be called unsane, beyond sanity and yet not insane. Think of a circle with a fine split in it. At one end there's insanity, you go around the circle to sanity, and on the other end of the circle close to insanity, but not insanity, is unsanity"
