Hallucinations and Near-Death Experiences

Hallucination man graphic. The late great Dr. Timothy Leary was engaged in a program of experiments with LSD and other psychedelic drugs at Harvard University until sensational national publicity unfairly concentrating on student interest in drugs led to the suspension of the experiments. Since then, Dr. Leary continued his work on exploring the human consciousness through the use of psychedelics until his death. Ralph Metzner's book, The Psychedelic Connection, used Dr. Leary's research as an instruction manual which can be used to help those undergoing a psychedelic experience achieve enlightenment while traveling through the various levels of consciousness.


London researcher Karl Jansen, M.D., Ph.D., and Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, is one of the world's leading experts on ketamine. While earning his doctorate in clinical pharmacology at the University of Oxford, Dr. Jansen has studied ketamine on every level: from photographing the receptors on which ketamine binds in the human brain to publishing papers on his discovery of the similarities between ketamine's psychoactive effects and the near-death experience. His book, Ketamine: Dreams and Realities, describes his research of psychedelic experiences and near-death experiences.
