There was a thing called Heaven; but all the same they used to drink enormous quantities of alcohol....There was a thing called the soul and a thing called immortality....But they used to take morphia and cocaine....Two thousand pharmacologists and biochemists were subsidized in A.F. 178....Six years later it was being produced commercially. The perfect drug....Euphoric, narcotic, pleasantly hallucinant....All the advantages of Christianity and alcohol; none of their defects....Take a holiday from reality whenever you like, and come back without so much as a headache or a mythology....Stability was practically assured.
