I'm Busy

I'm having some trouble with blogger. If it can't be resolved I will be posting at Classical Values until further notice.

My usual eratic schedule of posting may have a bigger hole than usual as I'm working on a few projects for posts that have been delayed for a while. They require extensive research and fact checking so they are keeping me busy.

In the mean time may I suggest visiting the following:

Classical Values
Dymaxion World
Skeptic
Rivrdog
War Chick
Disillusioned Lefty
Maggie's Farm
Dean's World
Isaac Schrödinger
The Sandmonkey

Free Golden Oldies via Rivrdog

I found this article on ibogaine, which can treat drug addiction by allowing the addict to experience their early trauma. Have you heard of this?

Yes. I have heard of the ibogaine treatment.

I first heard of it in relation to Wm. Burroughs.

My understanding is that its use is similar to other psychedelics used to treat addiction. Something first pioneered in the field of medical science by Timothy Leary.

Also note that http://www.4cures.org is doing some research in the area.

Tell them Simon sent you.

You are probably already familiar with the work of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, MAPS.
