I have to my knowledge never taken a psychedelic substance, although I do enjoy alcohol in moderation (they all say that, though). I would like to raise two points however. The first is dreaming; what is known for example about the release of DMT in specific parts of the brain and vivid and often surreal dreams. I write as a mini-Nebuchadnezzar, who dreams a lot. And being a bit of a lateral thinker some of my whackier (but not necessarily wrong) ideas seem to gestate as dreams.

My second point relates to the distinguished linguistic historian John Allegro's famous and controversial book 'The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross'. His central thesis was that the gospels, and indeed much of the old testament stories (such as Manna from Heaven) originated from Magic mushroom (Amanita muscarina) cults in which stories were in fact codes written as real-life tales, to communicate rituals to other participants, but not to the authorities. The Catholic Church adopted as the one true religion by Constantine, decreed that the four (of many) such tales of one such proto-Christian cult were in fact to be taken literally, while persecution of others continued. Obviously his views did not go down well with Church authorities, something I understand that, as a true academic, he found surprising!
