Did this passage from “The Psychedelic Experience” help inspire the first line of “I Am The Walrus”?

Yesterday I was looking through The Psychedelic Experience: A Manual Based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead (1964), by Timothy Leary, Ralph Metzner, and Richard Alpert (now Ram Dass).While perusing, I  was especially stuck by a sentence in one passage, and its subtle similarities in spirit and phrasing to John Lennon’s immortal intro to “I Am The Walrus”: “I am he / as you are he / as you are me / and we are / all together.”

Timothy Leary’s Reading Glasses:

Wearing the glasses causes the wearer to have vivid hallucinations and you never want to take them off after you put them on according to Artie.  The glasses definitely make the world a less boring place, superimposing, multiplying and often garishly coloring images, as well as, at least in the case of the MacPherson variant, frequently adding a soundtrack to the moment.
