@Angilion I'm not going to make any sort of remarks on your age, but I will say that LSD isn`t as unknown a substance as it was once thought. LSD affects the chemical serotonin in your brain. It temporarily disables some of the natural barriers that regulate the amount of serotonin released into the brain. This causes every synapse in the brain to fire off, sending the minds ability to think off the charts. This typically results in the mind firing off faster than the mouth can relate, causing a noticeable decrease in the ability of the tripper to convey what they are experiencing. On a note of reality, there are two realities; there is the underlying reality that gives form to everything you experience, and the reality you perceive in your mind. As far as what she is describing about feeling the air, new evidence shows that the space in between objects (what I refer to as `negative space`) is actually full of particles and `dark` matter.

The lack of knowledge is only spread with the unreal fear created around these substances. Meth and heroine kill people. Alcohol and tobacco kill people. Psychedelic related deaths are so incredibly minute it's amazing people are still afraid. Used correctly they can be a powerful tool on many levels. A blade in the hands of a surgeon can save a life, yet while used by a murderer to take one. It is time we stop pretending that all drugs are evil and start asking why these chemicals so closely match our own neurotransmitters.
I didn`t say that drugs are evil.
I didn`t even say that LSD is evil.
If you`ve got a counter-argument to something I`ve actually written, go for it.
It is reasonable to be wary of something that radically changes your perception of reality, works in a way that is not understood and affects your brain in an unknown way for an unknown length of time.
