Before I started to take medication, I could stare at an image and become excited with the imagery enough to explore different "states" of mind. The repititions are catalysts to imagine very deep subconscious images (and sometimes vocal messages). It is part and parcel to experience such fantastic ideas of thought and image. My medication subjects any and all imagery and messages, which can not be accessed anymore. It is a brain "thing" to have such imaginative parodies of real life.
That's what happens when one's brain chemistry elucidates "other" realities of the mind. Of course, they are facsimilies of inner workings in the brain. Not very many folks can "fly" into a whole scenario of imagery and sounds. I am among the few who can "naturally". But, it is a calamity to explore the imagination when one's responsibilities are pending due attention. The medication suppresses all such innate capacities to appear. That's why I take medication: to be able to function in the real world.
The virtue of a highly evolved being embraces all people and things and dispels the darkness which isolates them.
