Legal LSD Trip?
The psychedelic drug known as LSD may have been discovered accidentally but it has been known to have the greatest benefits in studies. At least until the 1960’s, during the Cultural Revolution when a bunch of hippies got hold of the drug, took too much of it and begin flying out of windows. Then the drug was prohibited and the war on drugs started. Although after years of attempting to fight something that could not be won, the tide may be turning in favor of once again legalizing the use of LSD after reviewing its benefits when used under the supervision of a medical professional. Until the use of the drug is once again made legal, this article will look at how to legally have an acid trip without having to break the law.
Eye-Gazing: A legal hallucinatory experience
Have you ever played the game of stare down? This is where you gaze into someone’s eyes or at their facial features. Did you notice that if you do this long enough, their features may become distorted? After a while you could even start to have hallucinations. For example, your friend’s face can begin to resemble the face of a mountain lion.
There was a case study that involved a study such as this. In the study, well over half (about 75% to be exact) witnessed animals and other monster-like beings that was once where their friend’s face was just a few moments before. Those who conducted the study concluded that the hallucinations represented a brief departure from reality, or dissociation, that was brought about by a manual sensory stimulation from staring too long at a fixed object, such as another human being.
While only 75% witness such monster-like features, another 15% did not see monsters but they did get to see a major deformity in the face of the individual they were staring at. A mere 30% of the entire group did not necessarily see monster-like features, but they did see other types of animals after gazing at the other person for long enough.
There were other strange events that took place aside from hallucinations of mountain lions and other exotic animals. Some of the other strange occurrences involved time slowing down as the two test subjects who were staring at each other felt sort of a “spacey” feeling. Aside from the hallucinations and meditative states, a couple of the participants said it was a very emotional experience with one of them reporting that they cried the entire time.
All you need for a study like this is a dimly lit room and about ten minutes of your time. Also, you will want to make sure that you have a willing participant to perform the study with. If you just walk up to someone in a dimly lit room, you likely will not get too far into the ten minutes before they notify the authorities. Of course you really do not need to stare at another person as you can stare at the wall or even at an inanimate object, such as a rock.
Manual stimulation brought about by a dopamine rush
One individual commented that he started into someone’s eyes for ten minutes and ended up dating the young lady. Next thing they know, they were on a trip to marriage land and having kids and buying a house on top of all that. That was a joke of course, but the same sensation of losing touch with time and becoming spacey was still there. The manual stimulation brought about by staring at someone or something too long can create a rush in the neurotransmitter Dopamine. This is what leads to loss of contact with reality.
Dopamine is known as the pleasure, or sensory transmitter. Any stimulation causes this neurotransmitter to become excited. This is how severe anxiety can lead to paranoia and cause a Schizophrenic to lose contact with reality once the “fight or flight” response kicks in. As we can see from this study, staring at another human or even an inanimate object too long can cause a head rush. It does not take much for a person to depart from reality. A similar dissociation can take place if you are by yourself in a quiet room and turn the kitchen faucet so that water drips into a pan for about the same length of time as this little stare down game. After a while you could snap or become paranoid and possibly hallucinate.
Although it is nothing compared to the actual taking of the drug LSD, it is by far safer. Of course LSD which is taken in a standard strong dose of 200 mcg can help a person depart reality just long enough to get in touch with his own psyche in an effort to discover what makes him or her tick. The main reason for the prohibition of the LSD drug was because the government believed it was the only way to keep people from using too much of the drug. After years of wasting money on this drug, they are finally realizing that people are going to find ways to steal it and abuse it for their own temporary highs no matter what the law may be. This may lead to bringing back the use of LSD in a more controlled setting so that patients who are under the care of a doctor can experience the more positive benefits of LSD, if they use it right at the recommended dose.
