    Default Steve Jobs says Taking LSD Helped Him be More Creative

    According to this article from Slate.com, maybe it does and maybe not. It all depends on...whoa...did you ever really look at your iPod, man? I mean really look at it?


    Apple founder and tech visionary Steve Jobs died on Wednesday. Jobs was heavily influenced by 1960s counterculture, and once told a reporter that taking LSD was “one of the two or three most important things” he did in his life. Can LSD really make you more creative?
    Possibly. Psychology researchers conducted a lot of studies in the 1950s and ‘60s on the relationship between psychedelic drugs and creativity. Their methodology was inconsistent, though, and the results were somewhat scattered. Taken as a whole, the studies suggested that people who are creative to begin with may experience a slight increase in inspiration or insight during and after an acid trip. That's not true for non-artistic types, although psychologists did find that most participants thought they got more creative on LSD, regardless of what the tests actually showed...

    To hell with LSD. I'd rather roll a big fatty and chill out to a few episodes of Adventure Time With Finn And Jake.

    I will say this. During a two year period of my life where I took LSD maybe once every two months, I was very creative on guitar. I probably wrote about 40 songs and recorded them with drums and bass. Since that period, coming up with original songs is very difficult. Basically writers block. It wasn't like I wrote on acid. I just was able to tap the creative part of my brain. Maybe it had something to do with it. Maybe not but I can no longer write a song.

    Why not?, it didn't hurt The Beatles either.

    It's been a decade or two since my last trip. My last one was a really good one and I decided to quit while I was ahead.

    My guess would be that any extreme experience will get the creative juices flowing. It doesn't have to be drug-related. Dropping acid is like skydiving or climbing a mountain: You've had an experience that's far beyond the ordinary (and a little dangerous). It helps you see new possibilities and new potential.

    Not to mention it makes the walls of your apartment taste just like frosted strawberry Pop-Tarts.
