Psychedelic Review
« on: October 24, 2018, 01:42:09 pm »


Whattup, buttlords and buttladies, it's ya boy Cramulus, back with my usual nerd shit.

I found out about this magazine called Psychedelic Review, began by the heady cats at the Harvard Psilocybin Research Project. It's a really interesting time capsule, a tour of mid-60s 'tune in, turn on, drop out' subculture and wackadoo spirituality.

As soon as I saw the cover of this thing, I wanted to read it cover to cover. (the Gurdjieff piece and the Rene Daumal essay tip the scales for me) And thank Gawdess we live in a time when we can, immediately. Or at the very least take a peek, read a few paragraphs, then get distracted by something else. It feels very dated, but still retains a lot of its original potency.

I feel like Robert Anton Wilson had a stack of these sitting next to his typewriter when he was writing Cosmic Trigger and Prometheus Rising. Like in Issue #5 (edited by Timothy Leary), the issue opens with a research paper on the effects of Set and Setting on psilocibin experiences. And I remember Wilson talking about that study specifically.

I love how the magazine has this frontier feel, like they're explorers of human psychology and are showing you the route through this uncharted territory. There's a feeling of discovery, of sharing something fresh and crackling with gnosis.

Thank you.
