Do psychedelics make us use our brain more when on them?
    #2660327 - 05/10/04 06:45 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I was just thinking about how some people think that drug use makes people dumber.
I was wondering, when affected by psychedelics, are we actually using and thinking with our minds more, or is it just a reaction where the signals/chemical messages get mixed up and cause a trip?

:confused:

Using and thinking with our minds is directly related to chemical/particle messages in our brain. Psychedelics affect these "messages"; the communication in our brain is "mixed up". You can see this as using and thinking more, I see it as different.

It's an opinion based on how you think about the brain, the mind, thinking etc.

Does thinking burn a lot of calories? Because a trip can make me tired afterwards, even if I just stay still for most of it.

The brain uses a lot of calories, but not significant more if you "think" much. The brain is always active.
