Altering Consciousness with DrugsConsciousness
Dock Ellis and the LSD No-No
Doc Ellis, who passed away in 2008, pitched one of only 263 no-hitters in the history of major league baseball, and he did so while high on LSD.
This short animation is set to an account he gave to a radio station of just how this came to happen. Why does the animation in this video fittingly depict his descriptions?
How does it compare to the description of LSD use in the previous video (LSD A Case Study)? Would Ellis have been able to accomplish this feat if he had taken a different type of drug? In what ways were his perceptions affected by the drugs?
