Yes, these substances assist us in thinking in completely novel ways. I once had an experience after ingesting thirteen Hawaiian baby woodrose seeds in which words and the objects to which they belonged simply no longer fit together. They had become two completely separate things. Looking at my canine companion, I realized that 'dog' was just a neat little box we used to simplify the immensely complex concept of this other species that has formed a relationship with our own race. When I finally relaxed into this new mental state I caught a glimpse of my mailbox. Of course, it no longer correlated to the word 'mailbox' but I realized I was for the first time seeing the world for what it was, rather than seeing the words in which we lock the world up. My mailbox had become a metal container mounted atop a wooden post, which then implied mining and metal working, forests and wood working, etc. Moreover, the mailbox implied language, writing, and the need to communicate at a distance. All of these things we normally bypass by wrapping concepts up in words blossomed forth from the object in an unending string of ideas that recreated the entire universe in my mind. I've never looked at the world the same way since.
