One of the most important side-effects from taking a drug is hallucinations. Hallucinations from drug abuse are when something foreign in your system releases toxins into your body and makes it seem as though something is right in front of you, even when there is nothing there. Hallucinations are caused by psychedelic drugs that are either prescribed or obtained through illegal sources. Either way, they are extremely dangerous and are completely advised against. There is a mathematical theory for everything that occurs in life naturally. For example, there is a mathematical theory as to why plants have a specific amount of leaves, and a pinecone has some spirals.
When it comes to learning about how there is a mathematical formula for hallucination, there is a unique way. Closing your eyes and pushing your fingers against your eyelid and adding pressure can result in exquisite patterns. Reports of seeing spirits and flares of light in the darkness of your eyelids are a common feat in your eyes. The result is caused by pressure phosphenes, a phenomenon caused by pressure against your eyelids. Causing instability in your brain or your retina can help in creating patterns in the brain. This instability and the reason for the models can all be explained and understood with the use of mathematics.
Before self-experimentation on psychedelic drugs took place, a young psychologist became the guinea pig of his experiment when he ingested the dried top of a cactus. The ingredient put the individual into a state of hallucinations. However, during the time, he was in the state, he was documenting how the ingredient affected the visual perspective was affected by the plant. He began noticing patterns that were strikingly similar than to many artifacts and paintings such as ancient cave-man drawings and art by the artist Joan Miro. The shapes that occurred were similar to cobwebs, honeycombs, triangles, spiral and tunnels.
The images that we see under the influence of drugs like LSD are patterns that are caused by excited neurons. The images appear when light reflects off an object and shoots into the retina. The photoreceptor cells in the retina, send signals to the brain which stimulates the neurons and makes them mimic the way that the light reflects off of the object. But when under the influence of hallucinogens, the neurons become excited and fire randomly, making patterns arise spontaneously. The triggered neurons are probably the reason for hallucinations. It is also possible to derive mathematical formulas from such illusions as for the coordinates, and the depth of the patterns itself can have many results.
Such results are shown in animal cortexes. When an image is mapped in an animal’s brain, and retina, the lines, and patterns merge to form a grid which can be used to study more accurately. When under the influence of the hallucinogen, the neurons become highly unstable and start firing in different waves spontaneously. A phenomenon called the lateral inhibition is the beginning of the mathematics behind hallucinations. This is the result when a single neuron fires. When a stimulated neuron fires it automatically stimulates other neurons nearby.
