Paul Mc Cartney talks of seeing God during psychedelic trip

According to the legendary songster, many people would explain it away as just a "hallucination", but him and the rest of his friends "saw a higher thing". He continues, per the Guardian: "We were immediately nailed to the sofa". Former Beatle McCartney has told a British newspaper he believes he once saw God during a psychedelic trip.

The singer-songwriter described it as "huge", and a "massive wall" they couldn't see over, where he was "at the bottom".

The Beatles' music was heavily influenced by psychedelic drugs in the band's final years.

It is found in the psychedelic Amazonian brew ayahuasca, drunk by indigenous tribes in the South American rainforest.

Clinging on: Tom Cruise's Mission: Impossible - Fallout added $7 million for a third place finish in its fifth weekend. Operation Finale , which opened earlier in the week, missed Box Office Mojo's forecast of US$7.2 million.

McCartney told The Sunday Times he was "humbled" by the experience. "Goosebumps. Obviously, I have no proof it was her at all, but it was good for me to think that".

Looking at the world today, Sir Paul says he sadly sees a culture in which "violence and arrogance are back".

Former Beatle Paul McCartney is set to release solo record Egypt Station on Friday. "We were heading towards sense, but we are into the next pendulum swing now", he said.
