Swami: However, I think that we are accessing a rarely visited part of our psyche.

As to your question, neither Leary nor McKenna nor myself nor others have come up with a good way to "test" any hypothesis about this unusual phenomenon.

This is part of the reason why I'm going into the field of nueroscience.
So much is known, and so much is still there to be discovered.

Pet Theory:
The brain is a multi-tiered, parallel-distributed processor. In other words, processing is distrubuted AND it's an Operating System running on an OS that's running on another OS and so forth. There are different means of accessing and/or disrupting the system(s), and some of these means provide interesting effects on the subjective experience. My best guess is that each individual's brain is running it's own array of OS's and therefore has different access points.

And now, back to jungle visions and all that hoohah...

Note: In desperate need of a cure...

Here's what happens with me: I don't label a lot of the experience because there aren't words for what is witnessed on psychedelics.

Then I may be discussing psychedelics with somebody, and they will describe a visual that they describe as "vines" or "worms" or something, and then that triggers several possibilities of visuals I have experienced that could similarly be interpreted/translated loosely as "vines" or "worms," so I'll tell them "yes I've seen things that could be labeled vines and worms certainly."

This reminds me of that post you made a while back (I think it was you? hmm I'll just CHECK! ..... shit I can't seem to search further than february of this year!), or that post SOMEBODY made discussing seeing various leafy/fern-like things during their trips, as if their living-room was being engulfed in plants. Jungle visions.

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.
