This is the complete track (in a single part).
Skip intro: 1:58
This remarkable, sometimes incoherent transcript illustrates a phantasmagoria of fear, terror, grief, exaltation and finally breakdown.
Its' highlights have been compressed on this recording to make their own disquieting points.
The time is 9:30 pm, 1 hour after the participants have eaten sugar cubes saturated with LSD. We hear brian and his fellow travelers observing their gradual transformation.
Brian's been amusing his friends by chewing on some plastic flashbulbs.
Brians' mood is gradually changing, he orders all of his friends into another room, closes the door, he sits alone on a wooden floor, visible only by the dim light shining from the bathroom. He talks to himself.
The time is now 1 am, Brian is unable to snap his fingers and terminate the trip, which continues.
He sobs, as his joy turns to fear.
Brians' rocky journey ended 12 hours after it had so innocently begun, he was shattered by it.
This young man never had a bummer in some 33 LSD trips. Every one of them was a delight, everything under control. He needed only to snap his fingers and down he came, anytime. But on voyage 34 he finally met himself coming down an up-staircase, and the encounter was crushing.
