Background

A description of the experience

The Varieties of Psychedelic Experience – Dr Robert Masters and Dr Jean Houston

When a period of fairly gradual transition ushers in this change, the subject may notice first of all a pulsing, vibratory excitation of the atmosphere and remark small curved, flickering and sparkling particles of light that appear to dart to and fro, dance briefly in place, then dart away again, and disappear.  This phenomenon of flickering light and atmospheric excitation is like that seen in the work of the impressionist painters and was theorised about by Seurat, who believed that all objects are precisely a coalescence of these energy particles.
