Dr. Sidney Cohen interviews a 1950s housewife, who’s husband worked at the Los Angeles Veterans Administration Hospital, before and after administering LSD to her for the first time. This was right before the pop culture spread of LSD and it’s effects in the 1960s, leaving her experience unmediated by any ideas of what to expect and shows the universal effects of LSD that reach far beyond expectation and desire. Later, Cohen discusses the LSD state with philosopher Gerald Heard.
My three favorite lines are, “Me? There wasn’t any me”, “This is reality”and “I wish I could talk in Technicolor!”
