No, we didn’t know that about Francis Crick, double helix co-discoverer, either

And didn’t even guess: “Francis Crick confessed that he was tripping the first time he envisioned the double helix.”

We think he’d have figured it out anyway, and we certainly never pictured him as some kind of apostle of love. But this is useful to know.

  1. “We think he’d have figured it out anyway, and we certainly never pictured him as some kind of apostle of love. But this is useful to know.”

  2. Maybe, by using a drug, such as lysergic acid, under laboratory conditions, to liberate some of the potential of the right-side of the brain, via a hightened sensitivity to the extraordinary, visual beauty of even the most mundane objects?

  3. Sorry, but should be ‘heightened’, not ‘hightened’. I’d meant to change it.

  4. It’s OK Axel, in this case “hightened” applies.

    ;)

  5. Axel,

    “Maybe, by using a drug, such as lysergic acid, under laboratory conditions,”

    is such attempt possible for american laboratory? perhaps allow man to glimpse God as small way close to Moses seen God?
