The ideal you seek and hope to attain will not manifest itself, will not be realized by you, until you have imagined that you are al- ready that ideal. You must assume the feeling of the wish fulfilled until your assumption has all the sensory vividness of reality. You must imagine that you are already experiencing what you desire. That is, you must assume the feeling of the fulfillment of your desire until you are possessed by it and this feeling crowds all other ideas out of your consciousness.

Calexico/Iron & Wine: He lays in the Reins

There are also two main perspectives on the psychedelic experience: The Shulgin School —which maintains that psychedelics only catalyze the availability of information that exists in your own mind, and The McKenna School —which maintains that psychedelics facilitate access to the domain of the idea or spirit through which you can contact entities that are extrinsic to oneself and gain otherwise inaccessible information.
As an anthropologist, I try to respect the beliefs of those who curate knowledge of sacred plant traditions and my experience with many plant based psychedelics (ie. Salvia divinorum, Amanita muscaria, Psilocybe cubensis, etc) is that they have distinct personalities personalities that I do not recognize as aspects of my own mind, which is something that I don’t get from many Research Chemicals. This could also represent between the difference in terms like Psychedelic vs Entheogen; although, I personally don’t like the term entheogen. Phenomenologically, I think it’s fine to describe my experiences as they present themselves to me without having to make ontological conclusions about whether it’s all in my head or taking place on a distinct hyperspatial plane.
And to quote Terrence McKenna: ‘Shamans [sic] speak of “spirit” the way a quantum physicist might speak of “charm”; it is a technical gloss for a very complicated concept.’
