David Lewis-Williams - A sensation felt on the skin may be perceived as ‘blue’
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
The Mind in the Cave – David Lewis-Williams
Like LSD, psilocybin and peyote induce visual hallucinations within minutes of ingestion, but auditory hallucinations are frequently experienced as much as 2 hours later; other kinds of hallucinations occur spasmodically.
The issue is further complicated by the observation that hallucinations experienced in one sensory modality can, by the process known as synaesthesia, be perceived in terms of another; for instance a sensation felt on the skin [somatic] may be perceived as ‘blue’
