saruman, have you read it? i have and i found it a very interesting and sometimes humourous read. i would recommend it to anyone who is into spiritualism, fairies, alien abductions, hallucinogenics or all of the above.

So, let me get this straight - the supernatural experiences are hallucinations brought on by naturally occurring substances AND not hallucinations.... at the same time? Yes what it seems to be saying is that for example you eat some sort of psychoactive plant then you have a trippy vision which is not really a trick of the mind but a glimpse at a parallel reality....D'OH!!

I'm not trying to make fun of the theory here, but in all honesty what exact proof is there that there is a reality glimpsed by people who are high?
