Vor anderthalb Jahren bloggte ich über die Geschichte der modernen Trepanation, bei der sich Leute ein Loch in den Kopf bohren, um über eine Senkung des Schädelinnendrucks psychedelische Wirkungen zu erzielen. Vice hat jetzt ein Interview mit Amanda Feilding, Direktorin der Beckley Foundation, die sich in den 70ern selbst ein Loch in den Schädel bohrte. Danach ging sie feiern. Ah! Die Siebziger.

What sort of preparations did you make?
I was obviously very cautious and prepared myself very carefully. I used an electrical drill with a flat bottom and a foot pedal, and tested the drill head on the membranes of my hand to see if it would damage the skin. The whole thing was carefully prepared, but more than anything I prepared myself psychologically. It’s the last thing you want to do.

Yeah, drilling a hole in your head kind of goes against every instinct.
Then I thought I’d make a film about it, being an artist. It was useful making the film, because it felt like I was separating myself from the situation and taking a step away.

So you’ve got the physical anesthetic, then the mental anesthetic of treating it as a piece of artwork.
Yeah, it was effective. After I'd performed the procedure, I wrapped up my head with a scarf, had a steak to replace iron from the lost blood, and went to a party.
