When someone offered him some #Pot, he took it and said:

My hand seemed to retreat from me and get larger and larger, and become kind of a cosmic hand across the universe.

And when he was asked to see the indigo ( His favorite color ) after became high, he said: "As if thrown by a paint brush a huge pear-shaped blob of the hue indigo appeared on the wall. It had kind of a numinous, luminous glow. I think music can take one to the heights in a way comparable to drugs, but I think indigo ( Color of heaven ) was my favorite hallucination."

So He is The Wolf!

He is Oliver Wolf Sacks (9 July 1933 – 30 August 2015). He was a British neurologist, naturalist, historian of science, and author. Born in Britain, and mostly educated there, he spent his career in the United States. In his autobiography Hallucinations; He wrote:

Neurochemistry was plainly in and so – dangerously, seductively, especially in California. . .were the drugs themselves.
And he added:
The medicalization of hallucinations only occurred in the 19th century, and people became secretive about them and ashamed, and afraid to be discussed.

Oliver & Neurology Of Cannabis

He did more in his lifetime to popularize hard biological science than maybe anyone before. He was an explorer of the human brain. He believed that the brain is the Most Incredible Thing In The Universe.

He explored the Neurology of Cannabis and other hallucinogens in both his life and work. He wrote fascinating books, demonstrating the endlessly complex ways in which our brains perceive the world around us. Like " The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat ", Describing the case histories of some of his patients, and "An Anthropologist On Mars ", Consisting of seven medical case histories of individuals with neurological conditions such as autism.

Oliver & Cannabis

He was obsessed with rare neurological conditions because they highlighted the ways in which reality can be subjectively understood. Instrumental in his scientific and deeply existential studies was his Use of Cannabis and other hallucinogens, which Oliver felt opened up invaluable channels of human perception.

I know everyone wants to earn more smoke but being front run by the author themselves kind of makes a curator not want to vote... You know? Might just be me but through curation is the only way I can increase stake as the country I live in has very strict laws. Figure 50/50 is a pretty decent compromise.

·

Understood, I will upsmoke later to give the possibility for curators to get more rewards.
Thank you.

Thanks for understanding. It is nothing personal it is just that when every does this it cuts all curation out for others so, lowers incentive. Steem should teach us some lessons of potential future.

I know that is nothing personal and I agree fully with you / I did not know about that / Selfvoting was auto here / I changed the setting just now to give the possibility for every curator to benefit 50/50.
