It’s so flattering that they took time out of their busy beautiful and extravagant days to take an interest in me.

They’re probably impressed that I wrote a book and that I knew Robert Anton Wilson and Timothy Leary. I mean, I’m sure these men’s influence spread to Asia’s current younger generation and they weren’t just part of a niche segment of the PsychoNaut counterculture of America some 50+ years ago, right?

Right?!
