“Now we have digital communication. We can create our fantasies. We can create our rhythms, design on screen. A new language will develop: a global language, not based on letters, not based on grammars. The language which we all understand, based on clusters of waves of light and sound.
Editor's note: An previous version of this story about Anthony Vita's federal court case over the overdose death of Morgan Axe included a misleading chronology. Axe contacted friends online looking for drugs, but then told one friend she was having second thoughts. Vita didn't know Axe was having second thoughts he reached out to her to sell her the drugs that in the end killed her.

MH: Yes. John Lennon did compose his campaign song, 8775 Come Together, Join the Party,” when Tim and Rosemary joined John and Yoko at the Montreal Bed In to end the war. After it was clear that Tim’s felony conviction had knocked him out of the race, John repurposed the song into the Beatles 8767 hit, “Come Together.”
Sasha titled his talk 8775 Drugs of Perception, 8776 and started by explaining that, rather than speak about his usual subjects, chemistry and pharmacology, he would follow his wife Ann 8767 s suggestion to tell his audience 8775 WHY you do the work you do? 8776
Perhaps this psychedelic alternative to violence may give you peaceful visions and insights into the unified future. But if you are not ready to try this experiment in neurological disarmament, don 8767 t be concerned. Your kids are doing it for you, and through them and by them, the currents of violence now charging the world could still be reversed.
