A description of the experience

The Beyond within, the LSD story – Dr Sidney Cohen

I was feeling very comfortable and relaxed when suddenly it happened.  I started to cry uncontrollably and nothing could have stopped it – it was like a dam giving way.  At first I didn't know what the weeping was about, but soon I became aware that I was reliving childhood experiences of which I had scarcely any conscious knowledge.  Until today I had remembered only isolated fragments, but now the entire sequence reeled off as from a microfilm that surely was stored within my head.  This reliving was very painful, and I could see that in burying it my life had been altered.  One of the fabulous aspects of this microfilm was the clarity of colour and form, from the facial expressions to the most minute details of the background
