What if you have your explanation entirely backwards? I've always thought it a bit dangerous to doubt the reality of human terrors and ecstasies as if to be somehow negated by neurochemistry. Its a chicken and egg question, are the visions induced by the neurochemistry or is the chemistry induced by the visions.
