Het laatste bericht van Ann:

To All Our Friends,

The time has come for me to tell you what none of us wanted to say or hear. Sasha has moved into a new phase, beginning just four or five days ago, characterized by great weakness (he can barely lift his head), loss of weight (he's somewhere around 130 lbs.), and reluctance to utter more than single words at a time.

We are still blessed in that he has no pain -- or when he does have a twinge or even a needle-strike, it's over immediately, and we haven't had to give him any of the strong pain medicines which Hospice has available. We hope it continues that way.

But everything else is not good news. He's holding on to life, or at least his body is fighting the good fight (he was always extremely strong and healthy, until a few years ago), and it's possible that he may live to see his 89th birthday, but we can't be sure. For that matter, he may stay with us for several months more, but we would be surprised if he did.

Sasha knows that he's dying, but that doesn't bother him. He doesn't know he has cancer of the liver, and there's no need for him to know; that knowledge would give him nothing useful. After all, as he has said, "We all have to die of something!"

Thanks to all of you for your support all these years. We appreciate every single dollar and every note or e-mail. You have kept our Tibetan and British caregivers here with him, and he has been surrounded by love and a lot of laughter, due to your help and compassion.

I'll let you know when there is an important change. In the meantime,

Blessings

Ann and Team Shulgin

Triest, een groot man heeft ons verlaten. Aan de andere kant, mooi dat hij vredig ging.

Aw, hier moet ik echt even bij stil staan. Ben die man enorm dankbaar voor de oh zo mooie ervaringen die ik aan zijn inzet te danken heb.

inderdaad goed dat het vredig is gegaan en een groot verlies, aan de andere kant ook een grote aanwinst dat hij heeft geleefd :)

Weet iemand wat nu eindelijk het meest favoriete middel was van Shulgin?

 

Uiteraard stonden MDMA en 2C-B hoog op zijn lijstje, maar kan me ook uit zijn boek herinneren dat 2C-T-7 een speciaal plekje bij hem in nam.

Dit weekend ben ik van plan om hem te eren op het stofje dat hij het meest kon waarderen, namelijk.

Magical Half-Doze

The so-called "magical half-dozen" refers to Shulgin's self-rated most important phenethylamine compounds, all of which except mescaline he developed and synthesized himself. They are found within the first book of PIHKAL, and are as follows:

  • Mescaline (3,4,5-trimethoxyphenethylamine)
  • DOM (2,5-dimethoxy-4-methylamphetamine, DOM being short for desoxy methyl, referring to the removal of the Oxygen atom from the Methoxy group on the "4" carbon.
  • 2C-B (2,5-dimethoxy-4-bromophenethylamine)
  • 2C-E (2,5-dimethoxy-4-ethylphenethylamine)
  • 2C-T-2 (2,5-dimethoxy-4-ethylthiophenethylamine)
  • 2C-T-7 (2,5-dimethoxy-4-propylthiophenethylamine)

Kwam per toeval bij dit oudere topic uit.

Hierboven vroeg iemand wat het favoriete middel van Shulgin was.

 

Toevallig was een paar dagen geleden het laatste interview met hem op TV (VICE docu). Daarin vroeg de interviewer welk middel Shulgin zou nemen als hij er nog maar 1 zou mogen doen. Hij koos direct voor 2C-D.

Ik heb er eens op gegoogled. Maar de meesten zijn niet echt onder de indruk van dit middel.

Heb je toevallig een link naar dat interview? Gaf hij ook een reden waarom hij voor 2C-D koos?
