Having only ever heard stories of LSD trips, I'll admit the idea of becoming more connected with nature via LSD is still not something I can completely comprehend. However, I do recall a part in one of my favorite novels, The Secret History by Donna Tartt, where a portion of the main characters host a bacchanal. One of the characters goes on to describe how after taking LSD, they all felt as if where were literal aspects of nature, claiming one of the others turned into a deer. At the time, I had not given the idea much thought, but after reading this it puts a new perspective on that scene. Perhaps by allowing the mind to enter such a state, we are able to access on a new perspective of the world. Truly a shame no further research could be done on the effects of LSD on the mind
