Yes I have tried it and yes it works. It's really nothing
more than the process of learning that we are all continuously
engaged in. I use psychoactives because you can easily control just
how altered a state you want and I love the stupid thoughts I have
as well as the smart ones. I have experimented to discover the
smallest amount of acid that gives me a noticable effect, it is a
sixteenth of a tab (sorry about the unscientific units).
I think we can generalise "altered states" to include any
new, unfamiliar (internal or external) environments we find
ourselves in. Our brains then "wake up" from thier preferred state
of "automation" because they have no "resident subroutine" for
preceeding in the novel environment. Our brains then start to
generate "guesses" as to what action is apropriate and completely
new "explanations" for these novel environments as it struggles to
find meaning in everything.
After the experience we can reflect on what errors we made
in our thinking and what new insights we can take on board.

wouldnt it be nice to hear a positive drugs story on the news?
After all the news is meant to be objective isnt it...
Today a young man on acid realised that all matter is merely
energy condensed to a slow vibration. That we are all one
consciousness experiencing itself subjectively.
