We live in a world in which human being creates divergent perspectives and opinions on the emotional, spiritual, mental and psychological benefits of experimenting with hallucinogenic substances. The psychedelic drug, LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) has been a key component in many scientific research projects that have shifted the overall cultural reaction to the conscious-expanding tool that the celestial tonic has become.
According to a research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, scientists have claimed that LSD serves to create a more well-rounded and balanced brain. LSD breaks down chunks of the brain with alternative functions such as vision and movement to create a more integrated and collected brain. Our human brains are miracles that consist of independent networks that perform specialized functions, yet while under the superhuman influence of LSD, these offbeat functions work as a coalesced entity. Between the hallucinogenic effects that seemingly put the analytical mind to rest and the visual cortex experiencing a psychoactive effect, a far less egoic version of oneself comes to light and reminds individuals to embody and simply be their highest selves.
“This suggests this effect underlies the profound altered state of consciousness. It is also related to what people sometimes call ‘ego-dissolution’, which means the normal sense of self is broken down and replaced by a sense of reconnection with themselves, others and the natural world,” said Robin Carhart Harris, lead researcher and first scientist in 40 years to test LSD on humans.
Landing in the otherworldly mental and emotional landscape through LSD where life should not be but simply is combined with heightened situational awareness invigorating an individual’s being with joy ignites an idiosyncratic perspective that leaves brain child’s musing upon interconnectedness while moving through the shifting rhythms, milestones and vicissitudes of daily life. Immersing oneself in the gap between civilizations through experimentation with LSD is becoming far more common within modern-day society through reference to the mystical experiences that others are encountering. For a moment’s time, the magical substance empty’s individuals of their jaded frame of reference about the world around and within themselves. Emptiness is synonymous with potential, a state of pure vacancy, a hole in the wall, a window with an unobscured view. And when individuals chose to take on the emptiness of their internal landscape, lucidity is attained. What was known becomes absolutely obsolete, and in the space left by overwhelming familiarity and societal expectation, inspiration and creation takes root. And within this heart-centered place, everything is possible. Magic certainly abounds.
