What does it mean to be...
"Too messed up?"

One might say, and maybe you too, "He took a lot of one thing, or drank a lot and now he's messed up." Now, while you may very well be the next Sherlok Holmes, that's not what I'm talking about.

What does it mean mentally, biologically, physically? To figure that out we would have to look at the affects, what happens to you when you take... whatever something?

THC for example: We know that THC attaches itself to the neurons in your brain and cause the brain to process things slower and generally less accuratly . ( More about the process here )

But what Im more interested in is how... how it affects vision, your perception. Because people have claimed, and science has backed it up, that It can actually widen our range of view due to a significant growth of your pupil.

So biologically, your brain is processing what you see at a slower pace, at a different, probably more random tempo. Your pupils widen, and your perception widens with it.

Mentally this can give a person the sensation of being smaller than normal, a bird's eye view, possibly at a higher dose a sensation of OBE. Because you see more space, and you are now processing more space, but at a slower rate. This may also make some feel... "left behind.", as if time is slowing down and they cant keep up, this may also be why many report a feeling of anxiety. A kind of "IRL lag".

Clearly, even THC can take a person to some very psycological places... dispite the harmless affects of a widend field of veiw. Thats pretty much all it is. But some people can process the change of perception better than others. But what about something else?

All food is psychotropic, meaning it has an influence on our thinking. Even water can make you drunk. No food at all for a while also changes how we perceive things.

We are so used to this happening, we do not even pay attention. We do not even realize it is anything other than normal. If you eat a candybar, some sugar, a soda, or even a beer, every one of those effect you. If you take the wrong type of chemistry at the wrong time, you get a bum reaction. Your mood does not reflect the situation you are in. You may interpret what you are told differently than what you would interpret it if you had consumed a different food chemistry.

When we are going to go do something, we usually try to grab some chemistry that will make us fit into what we are going to go do. This conditioning is done as we learn what the properties of food are from living our life. It is automatic. If automatic goes away, then we mess up and it is hard to feel right in a situation.

I agree, at the end of the day it is chemical reactions that are meant to suit your current situation, and continue processing comfortably. The awareness needs stimuli, and proper neutrients.

The thing I am more fixed on is the psycological affects of such a simple change in view.
