The Joyous Cosmology: Adventures in the Chemistry of Consciousness

The Joyous Cosmology: Adventures in the Chemistry of Consciousness


A vintage account of the psychedelic experience

The Joyous Cosmology is Alan Watts’s exploration of the perception that the consciousness-changing medicinal drugs LSD, mescaline, and psilocybin can facilitate “when observed with sustained philosophical mirrored image through someone who's in seek, now not of kicks, yet of understanding.” greater than an artifact, it really is either a riveting memoir of Watts’s own experiments and a profound meditation on our perennial questions on the character of lifestyles and the life of the sacred.

Includes Watts’s article “Psychedelics and non secular Experience”
