Great stuff ! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Ive read a book about LSD and its accidental discovery written by its creator Albert Hoffman.

The spider experiement is indeed real and was done in the 70's.

The assumption of the experiement was that the spider with its rather simple nerve system compared to the human one, would be so heavily affected that it would not be able to do anything coordinated at all.

But the results were surprisingly different from that.

The spider build a net , without any problems, in a much shorter time and strangely the web was constructed even more precise than the web build by a second sober spider.

It seems that the LSD sharpened its senses in a way the researchers even today do not understand.

Its a fascinating book, especially as huge parts of it contain reports of Hofmann's self-experiements.

He accidently discovered the strongest artificial hallucinogenic in the world by just trying to create a better circuitry stimulant. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

How he found out ?

By accidently kicking himself on a 10 hours long trip just by getting skin contact with it during an experiement. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

This way a rather unknown swiss scientist became well known as the father of LSD and a few years later unwillingly some kind of guru for the flower power generation in the usa http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

From wikipedia

On the occasion of his 100th birthday on January 11, 2006, he was the focus of an international symposium, which drew further media attention for his discovery of LSD.

"I think that in human evolution it has never been as necessary to have this substance LSD," said Hofmann. "It is just a tool to turn us into what we are supposed to be."[2]
