Do the mushrooms have consciousness and interact with out own consciousness when eaten?


  1. One will know the answer to this question only after one has partaken(sp?) in swallowing them.
    Actually, from my very long-ago memory, it’s more like they are the circus that came to my mind’s town! lol Who cares about consciousness when there are so many fun rides to go on! 😀

  2. All they do is slow down the Raphe Nuclei, the sensory filter. So with no filter on your senses you get all mixed up. Perhaps seeing “new colors” is quite accurate.
    Aside from doing my psychopharmacology thesis on hallucinogens and my 4 years at uni, I have taken shrooms 8 years ago.
