I’m glad to see someone is actually correcting them! That’s because instead of the information going thru the thalamus filter (which prevent information overload) to the region called the posterior cingulate cortex. So you regularly dont see reality as it is because it would be too much for you to handle. Thats the whole point of the thalamus filter. Im not sure why the person above was belittling someone because “tHeY aReNt A sCiEnTiSt” but since the posterior cingulate cortex is thought to play a role in the shaping of ones self, the information overload is probably a factor in ego death. So what you see on acid could really be closer to what “reality” is.
