did this Elder leave behind wisdom for us to glean about our need to redefine and re-imagine our relationship with Nature?
In this Book, Albert Hoffman, the discover of LSD (an ethnobotanically inspired molecule), reveals a more personal side of himself. He shares with readers his sense of mystical union with Nature. His sense of Divinity in the Nature. What happened to Dr. Hoffman as he walked through the german forests of his childhood? Did he see elves and fairies? We learn that Dr. Hoffman was a concerned nuclear activist, and leaned towards the notion that our technology was far outracing and outpacing our moral development.
Did he think LSD alone could provide the solution to the human dilemma of over-population, resource depletion, and the threat of species extinction? We are now 50 years into the LSD narrative, and the planet is for all intents and purposes, under siege. Did this Elder leave behind wisdom for us to glean about our need to redefine and re-imagine our relationship with Nature ?
