Excerpt(s): Introduction/ This booklet contains several processes concerning the manufacture and, to some extent, the use of various hallucinogenic chemicals. These chemicals are all restricted by federal law and possession or sale of most is definitely illegal.

Presentation of these processes is designed for persons who know how to use them for religious purposes such as the mystical Psychedelic Experience. The only other source of these drugs for religiously oriented persons is now the black market, where mixtures of variable cost and questionable quality make the hazards of using these already tricky drugs almost prohibitive. (page 1)

We have seen how the mind continues to try to function even when the foundations have been dissolved. The foundation, or framework, is known as the ego, the dissolution of which is consequently known as ego-loss. If the mind has carefully been coached to accept ego-loss, it will continue to progress until it finally frees itself in its complete form. The result of this final inward look is a self-awareness and enlightenment which is devastating in impact and unbelievable to anyone who has never undergone the same experience. (pages 3-4)

All these considerations should be carefully looked after by individuals seeking religious enlightenment through drugs. Light doses tend to enhance moods but do not usually initiate strong hallucinogenic reactions, and are not as dangerous. Heavy doses used to bring about psychedelic experiences should never be casually played with by the novice. (page 4)
