I read about this, it's a very interesting experiment. I read a great book written by a producer turned neuroscientist called This is Your Brain on Music in which he delved into the physical ramifications of the various fasting regimens of different religions. It seems that, when combined with certain "sacramental intakes," the process primes your brain and allows it to open up to enlightening and transcendental experiences more readily. In this way the myriad intoxicants humans have dabbled with through the years are intertwined with many aspects of religion. Ironically enough, many religions vilify the very substances their central tenets were influenced by.

Cool idea, but the dude looked awfully pale to me!

"Sacramental intakes," eh! I grew up in the Sixties.

Someone said "If you can remember the sixties, you really weren't there."

I can't remember who it was, tho
