Since the dawn of the age of psychedelics the imagination of hundreds of thousands of people, probably millions of inner explorers, has been sparked, illuminated and inspired. Of these, some have devoted their energy and lives to psychedelic research. The names of these early pioneers include William James, Hermann Hesse, Aldous Huxley, Timothy Leary, Richard Alpert, Ralph Metzner, Peter Stafford and many others. By book, lecture and interview they have endeavored to share their knowledge and to inform others about their journeys to the new frontier — the Interior Landscape.
The psychedelic journey within provides windows on the visions of the saints, buddhas and yogis. Formerly these visions were only obtainable by years of practice and austerity. In modern times the need for these visions, these ecstatic modes of thinking and feeling, has become a vital necessity for the survival of the planet. If we cannot on a large scale "see" that we are the stewards of the planet, and begin to care for our home, planet Earth, we will soon cease to exist.
