Some science behind the scenes

Incomplete images

One of the characteristic aspects of spiritual experience – especially with drugs like laudanum, opium, cannabis, mescaline and so on taken in severe overdose proportions, is that the images seen are not complete.

The scenes and story seen in any vision or hallucination are constructed for us by the composer, and it appears that occasionally the very strength of the drug also knocks the function of the composer off balance making it unable to complete the picture.
