Phermones, hormones, physical attraction is a drug that leads to arousal , an altered state of consciousness .
Drugs are completely neutral [ as is money for example ] .It is how they are utilised that one may deem there benefits or demerits .If it helps someone tap into creative, deep sides of their being - or fascilitates spirit journeys, then how can one pass negative judgement on such ?
The Beatles were really, really cool .They inspired millions, changed and grew with the times and wrote some songs that will eternally echo on .They encapsulated the soul of a culture in three minutes or less, at times .Enlightened no, but at times extremely inspired .
