Another thought of late is that drugs are maps. (Burying maps in the genetic makeup of plants would be an excellent method of transmitting a message over a long span of time!)-(In Carlos Castaneda's books, Don Juan called pot, shrooms, …; "power plants" and said they had a different aura than most plants, which identified them for people with vision.) (What I think they are maps of, in part, is other levels of consciousness and perception.) (In that book I read on shaman, he said that shaman exist in all cultures everywhere. Each culture had its own way of transcending reality, but all reached the same place. (It said some use drugs to help get there and others don’t, and I have read that many of the same chemicals naturally exist within us.)) (Maybe, rather than being the map, they are a key which unlocks the door inside us that hides the maps from consciousness?) (Interesting!) (I think that line of thought also ties back to what Bandler and Grinder said in their books about needing to have multiple personalities and the ability to perceive life from a variety of altered states of consciousness. (They said it was important to know about all the personalities and to be capable of weaving them together to form a tapestry of our own making. (That would tend to exclude a lot of addicts, as they sometimes forget a lot of their personalities and can’t readily shift from one altered state to another as the situation demands.)-(Maybe the trick is to use drugs as a map to learn your way around to new places, and then figure out how to get back to those places on your own?)))
