syd.Syd Barret, founder of Pink Floyd, I often think of him, would he have been fine without drugs? I had read that substance use made him sick and ended his career so soon, or that he was diagnosed with schizophrenia or, this was the first something I had heard in a documentary, and that he became schizophrenic for substances, so it's possible, in that documentary then they said no, that it would have happened anyway, that perhaps this anticipated but was prearranged. the reason why I avoid substances and that I think that very few things already depend on us, and then I'm afraid of losing control of my mind more to drugs or alcohol. also it makes me sick to think of Syd, of his suffering, of Syd's fate, regardless of the triggering cause, he had a boundless talent and not only in music, or in poetry, or in painting, He had immense talent, he was also beautiful, it didn't bring destruction to the world but beauty, it had to be happy, it deserved. I don't know if drugs have something to do with it but since I can't rule it out I grew up with a fear of drugs, a dislike for them and thinking of Syd. at other times, for different reasons, I think that at least certain drugs are indispensable and have brought light. I have found them interesting for better or for worse since I was 15 but I would never have had the courage to use them. I have also read about Syd that some have published that he was not schizophrenic but had Asperger's syndrome, in a mild form, I know little about this syndrome, but it is something that would have been present from the beginning and in any case the picture they made seems not to fit with him or her case, it seems to me that they based everything on the fact that he retired from the scene, which could happen for a thousand reasons and more for a worsening of the first 2 hypotheses apart from what I don't think we know if in all his really life it was always he who thought about retiring from the scene. the world sometimes chews you up and spits you out, even the older ones, then in show business, maybe at one point they didn't want him, he couldn't come back, it wasn't what they were looking for either he didn't hear or he didn't care, I don't know. I think that drugs sometimes maybe push further, they help creativity, other times they destroy, like everything I think the rope is very thin. that the opposites, the extremes are very close, the subtle balance, chance, luck, there are no great certainties but I understand the meaning of drugs and the charm, I don't understand artificial intelligence in the arts, it seems to me to wave the white flag, drugs are you are also a way to experiment, go beyond, for better or for worse try to be alive, destroy even the most important house in the hope of going beyond, the human mind a spaceship while the future seems to say, let's give up being human for a collage of the past or to feel gods or laziness or bo. make money in any way and take as much of it away from the rest of the world as possible. I understand why they build this future but not why they talk about it as a means and it's okay to steal. I believe that talents like Syd, Robin Williams or Roger Waters, fortunately he is still in business we will never have them again in a future in which machines and automatisms are in first place, the link with the post, is, drugs have contributed to giving them to us the Williams, Syd, Belushi, or to remove them. In these cases the drugs have only removed, I think that sometimes they have amplified, given birth to certain genres, sometimes perhaps irrelevant, sometimes they have only caused pain.
