[1] Mark Blake, Comfortably Numb: The Inside Story of Pink Floyd (2008), quoting David Gilmour: "There were a lot of people experimenting with it [LSD] as a way of finding a greater consciousness... the intention was to have a quasi-religious-cum-scientific experience, and I rather concurred with that. I'm an atheist, and I didn't start suddenly believing in God, but the claims were that it accessed parts of your brain that were not formerly accessible, and the first couple of times I took it, I found it to be a very deep experience."
