Im not a drug addict or anything but i just dont understand why people hate drugs and drug addicts. I would agree that they can make people violent and make them steal but imagine if Drugs were legal. The Drug Dealers would be out of business meaning lesss crime.
Aldous Huxley, author of ‘Brave New World’ and ‘The Doors of Perception,’ does not agree with the term hallucinogen when applied to LSD. (Huxley’s book was why the music group the Doors was called ‘the Doors’). He believes that a much more appropriate description of its effects should be ‘mind-expander.’ A hallucinogen causes a hallucination; something that is not there; an unreality. Under LSD, your mind is expanded. What you experience is not a dream or illusion, but a larger world. The tripper dives INTO reality, not away from it.
All senses are increased. You see, hear, smell, taste and feel to such an extreme degree that you experience new heights of perception. On LSD, when you play your favorite song…it is like you are hearing it for the first time. Sounds you never heard before on the CD are now crystal clear.
A fascinating phenomenon happens on the stimulant that would intrigue the physicist. The perception of time s l o w s. Time slows, during LSD’s peak, where one (normal) minute could equal 20 minutes! You literally experience more time. A little mental exercise may explain: Suppose you have a sensory knob that determines your level of perception. Reality is received via the senses. This data of the world around us flows to the brain at a particular rate. Let us say that it is like the knob on an amplifier: 1 to 10. Let us also assume that we operate naturally in our awake hours at a normal #3. On LSD, the rate of sensory intake is turned up or increased to maybe #6 or #7. More of reality flows into you through the senses; so much so, that the perception of time EXPANDS. We see the universe going by at a slower rate because we are seeing many more frames of reality per second.
Einstein spoke and wrote of the ‘feebleness of the senses.’ The great thinker believed that humans were virtually blind and did not see the true universe. Einstein knew of the Electro-Magnetic Spectrum which lay beyond visible light. The true universe is not static or stationary. It constantly moves.
We have all heard that people only use about one third of their brain’s potential. If we really used a third of what the brain could do, we could levitate; we could move mountains. A much more accurate guesstimate is that we only use a fraction of one percent of the mind’s total capabilities.
William Blake wrote: ‘If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is: Infinite.’ What would it be like if we utilized more of our mind? How would reality appear? What is the universe to the super mind?
Using more of the mind, the view of the universe is like the LSD experience. We would be functioning at an accelerated level. Our sensory receptors increase. Time/space expands. Reality warps. Clocks melt. If you think you normally see in 3D and in color…guess again. The visual experience of LSD makes our ordinary world look 2-dimensional and black and white.
In this heightened mind state…intricate, moving, geometric patterns are observed in everything. We could be looking at a blank, white wall; then suddenly we see intense colors and changing patterns. Those colors and patterns are not hallucinations. They are really there! They lie beyond the view of our normal, limited and narrow senses. A huge range of mental levels exist above what we would call normal perception. Someone operates on the higher floors of the mind.
