    Anyone taken psychedelic drugs and reached a 'higher' consciousness? I ask because of this story: and because I have always been interested in Aldous Huxley's 'The Doors of Perception', but, as a biologist, never wanted to shove such stuff into my body. Am interested in hearing people's experiences of different forms of consciousness.

    I wasn't able to read the text at the link because of all the ads moving around the screen.

    If anyone else has the same problem, there's another article here: " Brain scans reveal how psychedelic drugs create a 'higher state of consciousness'".

    This previous BWB topic: "Searle on Consciousness & Implications for Buddhism" might also be of interest:
