I believe that it is understood that some people do not hail from abusive backgrounds, do not have a tendency to over or under react to stimuli...and have a basically well balanced mind-set. (((Maybe even some of the folks here))) LOL
These well rounded individuals are the sort that should be investigating the stimulants that would aid and bring expansive possibility thinking to their frontal lobes?...so to speak.
Opening up to the spirit, opening up to things one never thought on before, and scientific (and esoteric) understanding of the universe (even parallel ones) can be easily achieved (now I am seemingly condoning them, dadgunnit!) with the help of some psycotrophic drugs.
I think that a person who is healthy may become even more balanced by experimentation with hallucinagins (et all) and that these chemical compounds can leave those who have been lacking one...with a spiritual life. How bad can that be?
I do not condone drug experimentation in the case of obvious mental duress, in depressed individuals, people who have suffered severe abuse of any kind, or to religious fanatics who may find themselves instantly transported to hell (of a kind) and not know how to return to normalcy. Without a spiritual guide, many people are inclined to freak out and lose their mental stability for far longer than the intended trip.
For those who have not read it in here previously, my first LSD experience led me down a heavy road, and one where I could not eat or sleep for two plus months, and I attempted suicide, possibly more than once...and I eventually had to be hospitalized (sooner would have been better, in hindsight) by strangers, because those who knew me did not seek help for me.
I was almost instantly made completely insane because of the ingestion of crystal Sandose acid, in an obvious overdose...and the people who gave me the drug were quick to forgive themselves and forget about me.
Since then I am quick to inject my opinion into any conversation on this topic...forgive me if it seems alarmist. I mean just to be pragmatic, and practical.
All the others who ingested the drug at the party I attended, were not overdosed, did recover naturally by day two (I believe) and had no lasting ill affects/effects.
Therefore it appears that the drug was not the poison, but the user was poisoned.
One does not always want to amplify the hurts and pains of a dreadful past. If the past was fairly acceptable, I believe that normalcy may then be assumed or at least assessed.
For claritys sake~
