I think psychedelics play a major part in what we do, but having said that, I feel that if somebody`s going to experiment with those things they really need to educate themselves about them. People just taking the chemicals and diving in without having any kind of preparation about what they`re about to experience tend to have no frame of reference, so they`re missing everything flying by and all these new perspectives. It`s just a waste. They reach a little bit of spiritual enlightenment, but they end up going, `Well, now I need that drug to get back there again.` The trick is to use the drugs once to get there, and maybe spend the next ten years trying to get back there without the drug.
