I'm afraid it's quite risky to use LSD for problem solving.

I've seen complete change of personalities in people who used it. Wich may be for the better, but can be for the worse.

One of the consequences of having a 'usefull insight' might be that you conclude that almost everything in your life is wrong. While this might be true, it can be highly disruptive.

One misses somehting important if LSD is ignored, I think. I recommend that everyone find someone they trust and a quiet safe place to explore the possible but highly improbable brain states that LSD gives access to.

At high dosages reality becomes as plastic as a lucid dream. One can see what the deep structure possibilty really looks like and one can judge one's self globally and honestly, the conclusions of which are what really lay at the core of the fear of LSD.

"One can see what the deep structure possibilty really looks like"

One can see _one of the_ deep structure possibilities. And that picture can become engraved in your mind.

It is kind of a gamble whether that picture is favourable or not.

Doing anyhting unprepared is a gamble. Prepare for LSD. Meditation is wonderful. The word balance alone is of great aid when you are in an LSD possibility storm.

The authority with which McKinstry speaks on mind-altering substances explains a lot of things.

What's scary is that I do not entirely disagree with his assertions.

Give me a freaking break.

LSD is not for kids... I did the dance and I paid the price... anyone who likes dropping acid regularly is a sick puppy, or they have some really weak shit.
