Yeah, and reality is a crutch for people who can't cope with drugs. You're not likely to learn anything useful from messing up your perceptions with psychoactive chemicals, they'll just lead you down a path to mystic nonsense. Reality as revealed by logic and evidence is far more interesting and challenging and complex than anything ever produced by any drug-hazed view of things. Use chemistry to relax, get drunk or high or buzzed or whatever you want and however you choose to describe it, but don't expect any meaningful insights from it. I like to have a drink or two of an evening on weekends--scotch by preference, or some Chateau Sinister vintages (I make my own wine)--and I like the pleasantly mellow feeling I get from that, but that's all it's about. I am, frankly, completely scornful of the view that psychoactive drugs provide some mystical insights into the true nature of things. Compared to the ideas currently coming out of the fringes of physics, drug-induced insights seem to me to be lame and impoverished and limited and evidence-free, a complete failure of imagination.
Yes I'm moralizing, and yes it irritates me. I grew up in the drug culture of the 1960s, and I never saw any drug users produce any useful insight under the influence, or do themselves anything but harm. And because the drugs are illegal, there's no quality control in their production, you can't know exactly what you're ingesting, and to me that makes using them dangerous and stupid. Ever heard of paraquat? It's a herbicide that contaminated some Mexican marijuana many years ago, and it killed a few people and made a lot of others desperately sick for a while.
I'll stick with alcohol, I know what it does, I can control the dose, and it's rigidly regulated and controlled so I know exactly what I'm getting.
