So are all drug trips real now?
A drug trip is an experience prompted by a foreign presence: the drug. If somebody slipped '___' into your coffee one morning and you starting seeing
bunny rabbits, it would be ridiculous to dismiss the bunny rabbits as being "all in your head." Oh, yes...it's possible they might be
in your head, but without the '___' in your system you would not be seeing them.
So working with that metaphor, if '___' prompts the experience of seeing bunny rabbits, what foreign presence prompts the experience of seeing 7 foot
tall grey aliens in your bedroom?
Saying "it's all in your head," even if true...to me seems a poor explanation for the experience.
" are commonly associated with '___'.
I ask the question why?
And I propose two possibilities:
1) For reasons of brain chemistry, this particular chemical manufactures experiences of aliens. This seems unlikely to me. It would be like suggesting
that '___' for chemical reasons manufactures experiences of bunny rabbits. Oh sure...you may see bunny rabbits while under the influence of '___'. But
you might instead see trails, or pretty colors or taste your neck with your hand. '___' prompts experiences of which bunny rabbits might happen to be
one. That's not quite the same as suggesting that '___' prompts bunny rabbits.
2) It alters brain chemistry in such a way that it condusive to perceiving something that is real but that we do not usually perceive
If your answer is #1, then there's nothing more I can say.
If your answer is #2, what is it that is being perceived?
Once again, "it's all in your head" seems a poor explanation.
