Alan Watts on 'these drugs' (psychoactive compounds)

" The nearest thing i know in literature to the
reflective use of one of These drugs is the so-called
Bead Game in hermann Hesse's Magister Ludi (Das
Glasperlenspiel). Hesse writes of a distant future in
which an order of Scholar-mystics have discovered an
ideographic language which can relate All branches of
science and art, philosophy and religion. The game
consists Of playing with the relationships between
configurations in these various Fields in the same way
that the musician plays with harmonic and
Contra(pun)tal relationships. - The Joyous Cosmology,
Alan W. Wattts, Page 21.
