Life Is a Cosmic Giggle on the Breath of the Universe

Not sure if this has been posted before. I did a real brief search that turned up nothing, so figured I'd give it a go.

The other day I got inspired to surf the internet in search of 90's rave scene nostalgia. I always get a kick out of it, however more than a kick, I am reminded that the whole scene of the time was the last real hippy unifying scenes that happened since the 60's. It existed without the pollution of organized crime and all the dirt that came with that. At least for a while.

The end of the altruistic era seemed to coincide with 95% of the LSD production in the world disappearing overnight.

William Pickard was a chemist who came out of the original San Fransisco LSD scene with Owsley Stanley. It is estimated he was responsible for 95% of the LSD production in the world until his demise in 2000. He is currently serving three concurrent life sentences.

This story below is related to the very strange scene that was happening at a decommissioned nuclear missle silo in kansas where the alleged lab was located.

I found it a fascinating read. Also made me think that perhaps youth culture was better off with mind expanding psychedelics instead of the alternative.

Surely by now you know that there's nothing altruistic about hippies or ravers yeah? You're talking about a group of people who like indulging themselves by getting high and tuning out. That's the opposite of altruism. All hippies and ravers have contributed to society is a bunch of music and fashions that can be used in marketing materials.

So yeah, altruism kind of did die with the hippies because their parents were the last generation who collectively took action for the benefit of society: Civil rights, feminism, end of the Vietnam war etc etc. All of the progress in those areas was made by the hippies' parents yeah? Hippies/boomers are a bunch of selfish, narcissistic arseholes who were given the world on a plate and yet still find reasons to complain about how they had nothing. I mean shit, look at the downward spiral that began in the 70's-80's... That's a direct consequence of the hippies getting jobs and responsibility and "taking what they deserve" yeah?

Shit man, if you've ever worked with someone born ~1945-60 then you know they're some of the useless people on the planet.

And what is it with people who like to get high trying to invent some bullshit reason outside of getting high to get high? There's nothing wrong with enjoying getting high. But don't make out like you're expanding your mind or enlightening the world or some shit... You're inducing an altered state of consciousness and that's fun. It's not some higher calling. It's just something you do on the weekend when you have a day or two to recover.

It reminds me of a conversation I had a bush doof where this dude motioned around us and told me how we're changing the world and making it a better place.... Yeah dude, we're changing the world. In the last 48 hours this forest has been completely trashed and it will probably be a decade until the damage is undone. Wooo! Enlightenment now!

Going to have to disagree with you on this one. What I was trying to say is that when psychedelic drugs were at the forefront of popular culture, we had a kinder and more thoughtful population than when those drugs weren't taking the spotlight.

Drugs are always going to play a huge part in the overall feel in society. Perhaps I used the wrong word by saying altruistic but what I was getting at was that in the late 60's with LSD and then again in the 90's with LSD and MDMA we saw huge groups of people experiencing these drugs together and coming to conclusions about community, openness and thoughtfulness.

Contrast that with the mid 70's -late 80's and the rise of cocaine and amphetamines as the dominant drugs in pop culture. It doesn't take a rocket surgeon to see the juxtaposition.

Seeing triple life sentences thrown down on the people manufacturing LSD at the same time the CIA is flooding the American market to the brim with cocaine* doesn't take much to see that there are society shaping tools in play here.

Think about that for a minute. A society who en masse is seeing each other as themselves, seeing their planet as a living thing, and feeling connected to it all. Or, alienating each other, looking out for number one and robbing your neighbour so you can score.

I'd say that if you think it is all one and the same, I completely disagree. I am not a tin foil hat guy, but people actually waking up and understanding each other is a huge fucking problem to the establishment everywhere.

Having been there around music cultures in the 90's I would definitely say there was a culture of people thinking and people caring in a pretty big way. Like in a pop culture kind of way.

That is pretty much exterminated now. Yet there is no shortage of drugs that numb us and don't let us think.
