RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $3500Goal: $3500

brain psychosis[edit]

I disagree. I think it's more like an extreme "fight or flight" response - time slows down, senses are enhanced, etc. Of course, in larger amounts (useful doses) one is reduced to contemplating the universe or listening to music one wave at a time... ħumanUser talk:Human 03:25, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

In large doses it does mimic psychosis, hence it's use by psychologists in the early days who'd take it with patients in order to connect with them. Acei9 03:27, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
No it doesn't. Modern science does NOT regard LSD as a true psychotomimetic. PCP is considered to be the closest drug that mimics psychosis. — Unsigned, by: 128.151.84.33 / talk / contribs 02:36, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

LSD 'casualties'[edit]

This is extremely unscientific to put it mildly. There is no evidence whatsoever that shows that LSD causes schizophrenia. This should be removed. — Unsigned, by: 128.151.84.33 / talk / contribs 02:36, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

Expert help please[edit]

Tried to add some stuff about how LSD works. I was able to get down shit about how it’s a serotonin receptor agonist etc. but tbh I don’t fully understand anything further than that. I know there’s some kind of crosswiring as described here, but this shit is way too advanced for me. Someone who understands brain stuff, please help! A S E L A និយាយ 11:35, 5 December 2019 (UTC)
