This is a serious subject, and I think that it deserves a little bit of dedication. I have never taken '___' from an external source, but it does
occur in one's brain - dumped, in fact, whilst we dream. I think getting hung up on whether it is a good drug or a bad drug is peripheral to a much
more important question.
Many people seem to have an idea about how the brain works, and what cognitive function is all about, that has really been inherited from sources
apart from self-directed research and understanding. The answer to fundamental questions such as what is the "other" in psychological terms are not
forthcoming. If you have done your homework and have come up to the point of talking about the "mysterious other", then I congratulate you - but you
aren't finished. None of us are. The idea that we even have firm answers to fundamental questions regarding the nature of reality is really just a
function of comfort.
I'm ready to talk about the language game vis a vis Wittgenstein, the "Hard Problem" vis a vis Chalmers, the possibility of merkabah being mistaken
for UFOs, or of Remote Viewing being an echo of the composite animals called cherubim as a symbol that indicates we share a distributed consciousness
and can see through the eyes of other animals, but I am not going to let negations and denials that are based on nothing but the personal inability to
face dangerous truths reign unchallenged.
