He could have discovered the secrets of the universe

The Edge has recalled his first experience with magic mushrooms.
U2 joined Zane Lowe on Beats 1 earlier today to discuss their album 'The Joshua Tree', of which they are celebrating the 30th anniversary.
While Bono was reminiscing about the past, he described them as "high times". "There were no drugs," he quickly clarified, but his bandmates corrected him, mentioning magic mushrooms.
Asked by Lowe if any of the songs on the album were inspired by being on mushrooms, The Edge responded: "Well, this was a bit later, but I had one funny moment with the mushrooms. This was a metaphysical experiment, you understand? It was very spiritual."
