1961 TV Mushroom Trip

The TV host takes mushrooms and looks into a strobe light and then tests his ESP in the last half, and supposedly his ESP is better.

In the last 2 min., Professor Jeffrey Smith, introduced as “a distinguished professor of philosophy and humanities at Stanford University, says, “As for the mushroom, it took me out into worlds I didn’t believe existed; far beyond ordinary perception. And yet, even today, they’re as real and important to my everyday life as anything I’ve experienced.”

“Brilliant neuropharmacologist” Barbara Brown of UCLA goes on the trip to Mexico, but doesn’t eat the mushroom so she can be an objective observer.
