Nobel Prize genius Crick was high on LSD
when he discovered the secret of life


FRANCIS CRICK, the Nobel Prize-winning father of modern genetics, was under the influence of LSD when he first deduced thedouble-helix structure of DNA nearly 50 years ago.

The abrasive and unorthodox Crick and his brilliant American co-researcher James Watson famously celebrated their eureka moment in March 1953 by running from the now legendary Cavendish Laboratory in
Cambridge to the nearby Eagle pub, where they announced over pints of bitter that they had discovered the secret of life.

Crick, who died ten days ago, aged 88, later told a fellow scientist that he often used small doses of LSD then an experimental drug used in psychotherapy to boost his powers of thought. He said it was LSD, not
the Eagle's warm beer, that helped him to unravel the structure of DNA, the discovery that won him the Nobel Prize.

Despite his Establishment image, Crick was a devotee of novelist Aldous Huxley, whose accounts of his experiments with LSD and another hallucinogen, mescaline, in the short stories The Doors Of Perception and Heaven And Hell became cult texts for the hippies of the Sixties and Seventies. In the late Sixties, Crick was a founder member of Soma, a legalise-cannabis group named after the drug in Huxley's novel Brave New World. He even put his name to a famous letter to The Times in 1967 calling for a reform in the drugs laws.

It was through his membership of Soma that Crick inadvertently became the inspiration for the biggest LSD manufacturing conspiracy-the world has ever seen the multimillion-pound drug factory in a remote 
farmhouse in Wales that was smashed by the Operation Julie raids of the late Seventies.

Crick's involvement with the gang was fleeting but crucial. The revered scientist had been invited to the Cambridge home of freewheeling American writer David Solomon a friend of hippie LSD guru Timothy
Leary who had come to Britain in 1967 on a quest to discover a method for manufacturing pure THC, the active ingredient of cannabis.

It was Crick's presence in Solomon's social circle that attracted a brilliant young biochemist, Richard Kemp, who soon became a convert to the attractions of both cannabis and LSD. Kemp was recruited to the THC project in 1968, but soon afterwards devised the world's first foolproof method of producing cheap, pure LSD. Solomon and Kemp went into business, manufacturing acid in a succession of rented houses before setting up their laboratory in a cottage on a hillside near Tregaron, Carmarthenshire, in 1973. It is estimated that Kemp manufactured drugs worth Pounds 2.5 million an astonishing amount in the Seventies before police stormed the building in 1977 and seized enough pure LSD and its constituent chemicals to make two million LSD 'tabs'.

The arrest and conviction of Solomon, Kemp and a string of co-conspirators dominated the headlines for months. I was covering the case as a reporter at the time and it was then that I met Kemp's close friend, Garrod Harker, whose home had been raided by police but who had not been arrest ed. Harker told me that
Kemp and his girlfriend Christine Bott by then in jail were hippie idealists who were completely uninterested in the money they were making.

They gave away thousands to pet causes such as the Glastonbury pop festival and the drugs charity Release.

'They have a philosophy,' Harker told me at the time. 'They believe industrial society will collapse when the oil runs out and that the answer is to change people's mindsets using acid. They believe LSD can help people to see that a return to a natural society based on self-sufficiency is the only way to save themselves.

'Dick Kemp told me he met Francis Crick at Cambridge. Crick had told him that some Cambridge academics used LSD in tiny amounts as a thinking tool, to liberate them from preconceptions and let their genius wander freely to new ideas. Crick told him he had perceived the double-helix shape while on LSD.

'It was clear that Dick Kemp was highly impressed and probably bowled over by what Crick had told him. He told me that if a man like Crick, who had gone to the heart of human existence, had used LSD, then it
was worth using. Crick was certainly Dick Kemp's inspiration.' Shortly afterwards I visited Crick at his home, Golden Helix, in Cambridge.

He listened with rapt, amused attention to what I told him about the role of LSD in his Nobel Prize-winning discovery. He gave no intimation of surprise. When I had finished, he said: 'Print a word of it and I'll sue.'

Die Zukunft ist finster, und das ist diesmal keine der üblichen Katastrophentheorie, sondern einfach das, was sich ergibt, wenn man die Weltwirtschaftslage nüchtern betrachtet und davon ausgeht, dass der Kapitalismus so weitermacht wie gehabt. Das wird auf einen Aufstand hinauslaufen, sagt Paul Mason im Guardian:

"The ultimate lesson from the report is that, sooner or later, an alternative programme to "more of the same" will emerge. 
Because populations armed with smartphones, and an increased sense of their human rights, will not accept a future of high inequality and low growth."

Auszüge im Detail":

"OECD released its predictions for the world economy until 2060. These are that growth will slow to around two-thirds its current rate; that inequality will increase massively; and that there is a big risk that climate change will make things worse. 

Despite all this, says the OECD, the world will be four times richer, more productive, more globalised and more highly educated. If you are struggling to rationalise the two halves of that prediction then don't worry – so are some of the best-qualified economists on earth.

World growth will slow to 2.7%, says the Paris-based thinktank, because the catch-up effects boosting growth in the developing world – population growth, education, urbanisation – will peter out. 

Even before that happens, near-stagnation in advanced economies means a long-term global average over the next 50 years of just 3% growth, which is low. The growth of high-skilled jobs and the automation of medium-skilled jobs means, on the central projection, that inequality will rise by 30%. By 2060 countries such as Sweden will have levels of inequality currently seen in the USA: think Gary, Indiana, in the suburbs of Stockholm.

The whole projection is overlaid by the risk that the economic effects of climate change begin to destroy capital, coastal land and agriculture in the first half of the century, shaving up to 2.5% off world GDP and 6% in south-east Asia.

The bleakest part of the OECD report lies not in what it projects but what it assumes. 

It assumes, first, a rapid rise in productivity, due to information technology. Three-quarters of all the growth expected comes from this. However, that assumption is, as the report states euphemistically, "high compared with recent history".

There is no certainty at all that the information revolution of the past 20 years will cascade down into ever more highly productive and value-creating industries. The OECD said last year that, while the internet had probably boosted the US economy by up to 13%, the wider economic effects were probably bigger, unmeasurable and not captured by the market. The veteran US economist Robert Gordon has suggested the productivity boost from info-tech is real but already spent. 

Either way, there is a fairly big risk that the meagre 3% growth projected comes closer to 1%.

Now imagine the world of the central scenario: Los Angeles and Detroit look like Manila – abject slums alongside guarded skyscrapers; the UK workforce is a mixture of old white people and newly arrived young migrants; the middle-income job has all but disappeared. If born in 2014, then by 2060 you are either a 45-year-old barrister or a 45-year-old barista. There will be not much in-between. Capitalism will be in its fourth decade of stagnation and then – if we've done nothing about carbon emissions – the really serious impacts of climate change are starting to kick in.

The OECD's prescription – more globalisation, more privatisation, more austerity, more migration and a wealth tax if you can pull it off – will carry weight. But not with everybody. The ultimate lesson from the report is that, sooner or later, an alternative programme to "more of the same" will emerge. Because populations armed with smartphones, and an increased sense of their human rights, will not accept a future of high inequality and low growth."

Made my day :D
 
According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington recently was faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night, the maintenance man would remove them and the next day, the girls would put them back. Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night. To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror. There are teachers, and then there are educators...

Der Bundestag hat hintenrum das Gesetz so geändert, dass Unterlagen des Bundesrechnungshofes zur Haushaltsführung der Fraktionen nicht mehr öffentlich sind. Ein Schelm, wer böses dabei denkt...

http://www.spiegel.de/politik/deutschland/hartmann-raeumt-crystal-meth-konsum-ein-a-979761.html#ref=rss

Das Bild verdient einen Rewind ob der obigen News. Und nein, ich bin der Letzte, der Leuten vorwirft, irgendeine Substanz zu konsumieren. Soll jede/r selbst wissen wie er oder sie sich berauscht und bei Meth sich auch auf Raten dann fertig macht. Aber bei Hartmann handelt es sich um einen DER Hardliner gegen "Drogen"liberalisierung bei harmlosen Dingen wie Hanf. Ein Mann, der die Unschuldsvermutung abschaffen wollte (!) und eine Beweislastumkehr forderte, nix mehr In Dubio Pro Reo. Wasser predigen, Wein saufen. Die größten Kritiker der Elche sind selber welche. Und so weiter.

Eat your bloody own medicine, Soze! Wärst du vorher als liberaler echter Sozialdemokrat aufgefallen hätte ich Mitgefühl. So aber, niente, nada, nüscht, jar nix. Karma ist ne Bitch. So, genug Lebensweisheiten. 

Und selbst WENN es sich hier um eine Aktion gewisser Dienste handelt, was ich weis Gott nicht mal als VT ausschließen will, da Hartmann, obwohl Freiheitsfeind doch auch Kritiker der NSA war, tja, scheiße gelaufen, Soze. 

Und nochmal, ich lästere nicht über Hartmann, weil er sich ein Grämmchen Meth eingepfiffen hat. Das ist mir sowas von egal. Ich faziapalmiere mich nur, weil er eben genau das Gegenteil von dem getan hat was er selber immer fordert. Ein Law & Order-Fanatiker, der insgeheim auf Law & Order gekotet hat.

Ein weiteres Beispiel, wie verlogen ein konservativer (viele Sozen sind ja eh nur verkappte Schwarze Pestler) menschenfremder Geist nach Außen ist. Denn Innen tobt der gleiche Krieg wie bei allen anderen Menschen.

Hallo, ich bin Hannes und ich bin Amazoniker.

Eigentlich bin ich nur ein fauler Sack. ^^
Ausserdem ist es frustrierend, wenn ich mich nach Stunden und Tagen des Erfahrungsberichte lesens und Funktionen vergleichens endlich mal entschieden habe, die örtlichen Höker DAS EINE Modell das ich haben möchte nicht auf Lager haben.

Mt. Gox has half a billion stolen. Lots of press. Citigroup has half a billion stolen. Not so much.

Maybe that's appropriate, but either way, I found the juxtaposition interesting.
