Psychedelic


This term is closely linked to the counterculture or also known underground movements. You can see artistic, musical, literary and scientific manifestations. That seek to replicate and/or enhance the altered sensitivity produced by hallucinogenic drugs to break the limits imposed on consciousness and reality as we see things and live.

It is important to note that the British psychiatrist Humphry Osmond was responsible for introducing the term psychedelic in 1957, describing it as “what the mind reveals” or “what the soul manifests”.

These manifestations of the experiences and psychic states of the individual are characterized especially by the alteration of sensitivity and that in normal conditions remain hidden and manifest in the form of constant hallucinations, euphoria or intense states of depression.

On the other hand, that element or substance that causes the euphoric manifestation or stimulation is also called a psychedelic, for example, hallucinogenic drugs such as LSD are also known as psychedelics because they cause those who consume the manifestations mentioned above.

And also in colloquial language, the word psychedelic is often used when you want to account for what is rare, extravagant or has the characteristics of a hallucination. The movie Panic and Madness in Las Vegas has an absolutely psychedelic aesthetic.
