These things will not bring you any closer to the truth.

No one has found a way to talk to Aliens or defeat the Old Heirarchies through exploring their own mind - and way too many talented individuals have lost themselves along this path.
At best these things can sometimes help bring out the creativity you already have inside you - and at worst they can damage your mind and soul permanently.
Maybe when we have achieved a Second Renissance - and the standard of living is excellent throughout this planet - hallucigens will be an interesting/useful tool - right now they serve only as a destraction and posion that gives our common enemies the upper hand.
Lets work at fixing reality first, mmmkay?
This is where it gets complicated, because every journey is unique, and the area is mainly unchartered by Western society.

I feel any spiritual experience of worth will entirely depend on preparation of the soul as in meditation and spiritual laws. When this is attained then the taking of any drug is unnecessary, as one would be able to walk other worlds naturally.
