There’s been some discussion about the piece regarding the “panic” over sound that gets you high.
Of course sound can get you high. And you don’t need special tones playing in static. Just listen to the right album when you’re in the right mood…
And somewhat lost in the discussion is the fact that we’ve unfortunately come to the point where some people think that getting high is a bad thing.
And yet, humans are always getting high. They like it. They get high from caffeine; they get high on sex (oh yeah, that definitely stimulates some chemical receptors); they get high on running; they get high on religion; they get high on chocolate and on smelling the roses. They get high on adrenaline. They get high on patriotism and team spirit. They get high on meat cooked on the grill. They get high on laughter or on poetry.
I guess we’d better get busy outlawing stuff.
