    I agree, but even our most lucid perception of reality is only a "best guess", a "controlled hallucination". When our best guesses are in agreement, we call that reality.

    OTOH, when we guess wrong due to some other influence our guess becomes a "false best guess" or an "uncontrolled hallucination". (Anil Seth)

    But we are hallucinating (best guessing) all the time.

    p.s. Neurologist and author Oliver Sacks brings our attention to Charles Bonnet syndrome -- when visually impaired people experience lucid hallucinations.

    lucid hallucinations; lucid but uncontrolled hallucinations.

    In my experience, hallucinations are just a suppression of the normal sensory filters in place to make the world navigable. "Pissed", to me, indicates not being able to navigate at all...

    lol, that would do the job. But CBS syndrome is experienced by a great many people, especially the elderly.

    Urban Dictionary: Beer Before Grass Your On Your Arse, Grass Before Beer Your In The Clear Because alcohol seems to enhance affects of THC, and vice versa... (I don't really feel like referencing that as I forget where to look ATM.) That and cannabis cocktail drinks are a tricky business: https://www.thespruceeats.com/cannabis-cocktails-drinks-what-you-should-know-4125578

    Only mentioned cause WTF? Is the federal government already have same ideas I do?

    You can graft a hop vine to a marijuana rootstock and get THC in the hops, as well as the numulins for bittering the beer.

    Just a thought...

    Dammit, I missed an edit. Humulins...

    And I succumbed to temptation earlier with some magic mushrooms. I'm too old for that shit. It was fun, but...

    I see and project light every day and they come as things like life and time, I call it acting. I believe it's the literal paradise vision of Amitabah Buddha. We both have the same color and element, red fire.

    I see it as reality and reality can be breathtaking in its beauty and horrific in its cruelty. Either way it is majestic in scope and expression.

    My favorite nature is Belief. Like a little groundhog it comes up out from under the earth and tells of hope. And that shines ratherly dense.

    Sorry, I just couldn't call the results of a mass kill by flood, landslide or dictator as majestic.

    I agree they are tragic events. But it does directly speak of the awesome power of global events.

    But, I don't think that mass killings by a cruel dictator belongs in that category.
    I should have qualified my posit as pertaining to reality of natural global or cosmic events.

    Back to the topic, don't do hallucinogens and go gallivanting around a battlefield. Bad news...

    I'd rather smoke banana skins than drink whine.
