Happy Bicycle Day

On April 19th, 1943, Swiss research chemist, Dr. Albert Hofmann, conducted a self-experiment with a then unknown compound, "LSD-25," a product of his chemical research. The extraordinary transformation of consciousness was utterly beyond his expectation. He experienced the first LSD "trip." Uncertain what was happening to him, he left the laboratory by bicycle. . . and an epic journey of scientific investigation and social change began. April 19th, 2006 is the 63rd anniversary of this great discovery.
