Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There was a lot of people fooling themselves about their "spiritual evolution" back then.  If you'll recall most of the gurus from that era have been shown to be hucksters, cheats, liars, sexual predators, or/and nincompoops.  Which is not unexpected from a bunch of religiously indoctrinated know-nothings.

Taking LSD does have a certain Wow, Man utility.  It informs the taker perception and one's psycho-epistemology are programmable, if the taker is open to such notions.  My suspicion is most people who took LSD were more interested in watching the pretty colors.  To my certain knowledge, people who took a lot of LSD fried their brains.

It's worth noting the advice Maslow used to give when asked about how to achieve a state of Self-Actualization, "Get a job."
