Ah yes - I forgot to warn you about that... Sorry.
Still, it is well worth reading in detail; and I think it would be unwise to dismiss it completely because of the substance involved.
There are plenty of cases where similar or even more puzzling events took place and no mind-altering substances were involved. I have experienced them
myself more than once (which is how I got interested in this topic in the first place); and some happened in the south-west of France, while visiting
a Cathar fortress.
(I am not going to talk about them because it would be more than a little off topic.)
Anyway, let's not forget that Himmler's pals roamed through that area - and I doubt they were stoned.
they looking for?
I do believe, though, that areas in and around mountains lend themselves to experiences such as that, and indeed a lot of what we have discussed here
in this thread. A mixture of the sheer awesomeness of the scenery, probable geomagnetic effects on the body in many circumstances, and the combined
effects of such on the mind, whether conscious or subconscious, could, and probably does, lead to periods of time being "lost" - even if this is just
ten minutes of taking it all in that feels like two hours.
Absolutely, and I think you explained it very well.
Still, there are cases of "weirdness" where logic fails. Completely.
(Which isn't to say that there is no logical explanation - only that our grasp of the nature of things is incomplete at best, so our current "logic"
can only carry us so far.)
We have a few mountains here (not very near to me, but not too far either, and towards the end of the day, the highest point in the country
attracts many people who take the time to drive 90% up the mountain and then walk the last 10%, just to experience the end of the day on the top of
the mountain. Mind you, it has neen described as one of the top ten driving roads in the world in some quarters, to maybe that has something to do
with it too.......
I believe a good friend of mine, a participant in this thread, has visited that mountain.
(Of course she would climb it all the way - from below the sea level, if possible
- so if you ever saw a woman walking from all the way from the
bottom... that was her. :-)
