Background

A description of the experience

The Joyous Cosmology – Adventures in the Chemistry of Consciousness – Alan W. Watts and Timothy Leary

Closed eye [visions] in this world seem sometimes to be revelations of the secret workings of the brain, of the associative and patterning processes, the ordering systems which carry out all our sensing and thinking…… they are for the most part ever more complex variations upon a theme – ferns sprouting ferns sprouting ferns in multidimensional spaces, vast kaleidoscopic domes of stained glass or mosaic, or patterns like the models of highly intricate molecules – systems of coloured balls, each one of which turns out to be a multitude of smaller balls, forever and ever..
