Kaikkeuden ymmärtäminen ja totuus on kaikkien ajattelevien ihmisten mielessä jollain tapaa. Meillä länsimaissa keskustelu on pääsääntösesti tiede vs. uskonto, näihin asioihin liittyen.
Jos kuitenkin ajatellaan lukuisia muinaiskulttuureja, moista väittelyä ei ( korkeasta kehityksestäkään huolimatta ) ole esiintynyt. Heille vastaus on ollut luonto. Kuten tieteenki totuudet ovat luonnosta, kaikkeudesta. Muinaskulttuureissa on otettu vain hieman erilainen näkökanta.
LSD, meskaliini, psilosiini/psilosybiini, DMT jne.
"I believe with the advent of acid we discovered a new way to think, and it had to do with piecing together new thoughts of your mind. Why is it that people think it's so evil? What is it about it that there is scares people so deeply? Because they are afraid that there is more to reality than they have ever confronted. That there are doors that they're afraid to go in and they don't want us to go in there either because if we go in, there we might learn something that they don't know. And that makes us a little out of their control.'

'You're intoduced to lsd, an' it's not like taking some other drug for instance like marijuana or something, hm, well, you know, it's altogether a new thing, and you actually can have a religious experience, and, hm, and it can be even more important than reading the bible six times or becoming a pope or something like that, you know..."

"'The common way to think about the nature of the human mind, is that it is either sane or insane. LSD hints to us that there is an area of the mind which could be called unsane, beyond sanity, and yet not insane. Think of a circle, with a fine split in it. You go around the circle to sanity, and on the other end of the circle, close to insanity, but not insanity, is unsanity."
"I became tuned in on the network of neurological signals and cellular wisdoms that radiate at hundreds of millions per second."

Tämä perussuomalainen, länsimainen käsitys 'huumeista' on hyvin harhaanjohtava.
