The Mescaline experiment: Humphry Osmond and Christopher Mayhew
#1
Humphry Osmond was the British psychiatrist who coined the term "psychedelic". This short video documents an experiment in 1955 in which he administered mescaline to Christopher Mayhew, a member of parliament. Mayhew ingested 400mg of mescaline hydrochloride and recorded his experience on camera.
The footage was originally supposed to be broadcast on BBC.
Mayhew himself maintains that it was a genuine mystical experience which "took place outside time" and wanted it to be shown. However, an "expert" committee of psychiatrists, philosophers, and theologians reviewed the footage and reached a unanimous verdict that Mayhew's experience was not a valid mystical experience. So it was never broadcast.

Also, a politician tripping balls on a hallucinogenic.. Maybe we should spike the drinks of our politicians..




"When he sits in merry disarray
 With a smile that says it all
He's found a distant bliss
 Too beautiful for words
And he talks in tones so eloquent
And confident you know
Now he understands a trip is not a fall

Christopher Mayhew says
There is no time
There is no space
But he knows where he goes
And he's happy to be free

His liquid mind is leaking out
But it's fun to feel it flow
Into immediate infinities unknown
A sacred swarm of human eyes
Arising through the floor
Glistening perfection as they glow"

Well we all know the majority of them is on cocaïne but we should spike them with good drugs instead.

Preferably something acid-like , let's say 1p-lsd (I don't want to break the forum rules)

Fascinating - thanks, Tom Selleck. It's a pity they didn't dare show it because it showed that the experience was neither dangerous nor unpleasant.

And gosh, isn't he posh...

Think I originally saw this on the BBC 2s part The beyond within: the rise and fall of LSD from the mid 80s which a friend put on video tape for me (remember those?) great footage though.
