Sorry to interject here, but I'm a bit of a middle ground as far as my opinion on your interesting little disagreement goes. I've never done DMT (yet...coming 2020, trust) but I've done mushrooms a lot and while I wouldn't necessarily say it's some sort of.....magic revelation it sure as hell is a bit more than "just getting high" like I have with cocaine or meth....or alcohol for that matter.

Go eat 7g of mushrooms and report back about how banal the psychological outcome is for ya. ;)

I wouldn't understimate their ability to have profound effects on the brain in physiological ways that can enhance all manner of dysfunction.
Yeah, SunriseChampion... I often question the “all manner of dysfunction” that may best NOT be underestimated.

( Resulting from high-dose psilocybin ingestion )

“Dysfunction” being a relative term, within the confines of Western Culture, and an evermore incrementally discordant template of adaptation to that culture.

Does that make sense?

I’m getting older, and the ability to attach the most effective words to often abstract concepts, is becoming less fluid.

Nonetheless, the often “revelatory” nature of heavy psychedelic experiences ( once you get past the distracting retinal circus, and assorted jesters / demons / message bearers ) appears as a revelation of the importance in a common thread of realignment with nature, and the CODE, in an unadulterated form.

The DISCHORDANT, is a non-alignment with that CODE.

Heavy psychedelics can definitely exacerbate the feelings of being OUT OF CONTEXT, in a society that is evermore combustible, inhospitable, and hurtling down a path of self-destruction.

Being “too-sensitive”, or open, to erratic, stray energies, and malevolent entities can make for “crazy”.

The greatest respect for ALL entheogens is a message that I would truly wish to propagate in these forums.

These are not toys.

They are not just to “get-high”.

There needs to be more reverence.

These are vectors, and doorways to realms beyond mere mortal comprehension.

Nobody REALLY knows what happens there.

Having a strong core sense of self is extremely important, in my view.

I’ve been to “psychotic” states with it.

It’s impossible to be truly objective regarding whether or not I have permanently impacted myself in a destructive way because of extreme psychedelic usage.

Insanity is a relative term.

Love is Real.

I believe this. That psychedelics can cure hallucinations. They are just some wires wired wrong in neurology. But of course it's a critical territory and one can also do great harm. But not doing anything might be the worst in some situations.

They wanted me to believe in that I had a psychotic episode and need to take fucking antipsychotics for lifetime when it was just a bad drug interaction that ceased when stopping the wrong med...

psychedelics are more powerful than any other drug class at making their users think that the drugs are good for them. This is akin to trying to fix a heart problem with crack cocaine.

I’ve considered the very same idea...
( psychedelic chemicals, in general, “TELLING” us that they are good for us... )

Hi LucidSDreamer...

🔴🔴🔴 If I could make the objective distinction between actual value-add, and the would-be false impressions of value-add, brought on by chemically induced fleeting flashes of brilliance... I would have to be a helluva lot smarter than I like to believe I am.

The thing is, the studies are coming in now. -Specifically: the 5HT2a receptor sight studies showing, ( in as little as I may understand ) what seems to be some “nuerogenisis” or rather, brain or signal pathway growth, or lasting potentiation.

Hey, I dunno.

There’s no control subject, or otherwise identifiable baseline for my personal head; Or, for any of the connected resonating frequencies from some “other” source
that may, ( or may not! ) have tapped into me because of heavy Acid ( ++ ) use.

However, yes, I like to believe that these more highly resolute and broadly saturating experiences have benefited the latitude with which I perceive the world now, on a daily basis.

-It made it all RICHER, alrighty?

I’m interested in the idea that varied plantforms, fungus in particular, have evolved such a high-affinity for the biology of our own brains.

Why is that?

The fungus was here first...
( I don’t know when Claviceps Purpurea first appeared )

Do plants eventually recognize that they need to show us some perceived benefit?

-To survive themselves, through protection or cultivation?

Hey... maybe you start thinking a LOT of stuff because of psychedelics.

Yup. Sometimes TOO much.

There’s also a study that I just read regarding reduction of inflammation through the use of LSD.

I think that as long as the studies progress at this current rate, the resultant biologically quantified benefit to hazard quotient will become more clear on the “plus” column.

Then again: Yes, I’m pretty crazy.

But often glad to be that way, however I got here.

The psycho-spiritual stuff is just too unfathomable to even attempt to handle, as to: “WHAT the fuck was that, and is it good for me?!”

Maybe I need to believe that it is as all good for me.

Can I decide for myself?
“...make it call the tune... anybody’s choice... I can hear your voice... how does the song go?”

Blessings to All,
Bryan in Seattle
