John Perry Barlow describes his

John Perry Barlow describes his first acid trip.
"With the possible exception of having children, taking that trip was the most important thing I ever did. In terms of creating the person I am and how I approach the world, why I do what I do, and what I think it's all about, no other experience in my life has been so transforming. When you know that everything is invisibly connected, it alters everything you do, from the way you treat "other" people to the way you treat 'yourself.' It certainly changed the focus of my intellectual interests."

Long article about an early

Long article about an early 19th-Century "wolf boy."

Unsurprisingly, Victor's wild life had left him ill-equipped for a life indoors. He refused to wear clothes, ripping them off whatever the weather. He slept curled up in a ball like an animal and defecated without shame whenever and wherever the urge took him. He would only eat familiar food such as his half-burnt potatoes or raw walnuts and acorns. These he would snatch with ill-grace and chew on with complete absorption. His gait was peculiar. He walked uncertainly and preferred to lollop along in a shuffling run. Occasionally he would revert to all fours as earlier he had been seen to do in the forests.
