I meant to imply nothing of the sort. Where did I suggest taking drugs
early as a prep for death? I suggested illuminating, for the readers,
the reasons Huxley and Leary used hallucinogens at the time of their
death. I don't understand how you infered what you did. The "juncture
of spiritual growth" that I was talking about was the moment of
death...when we move to the next stage of existance. I think that you
misunderstood something that I said. Here is what I wrote:

Now why do I deserve "ire" for wanting to edjucate someone about someone
else's life?
