Even if these experiences are hallucinations, does that make them any less 'real'? If you want to trivialize the experience so that it fits nice and neatly into your view of reality so that you can shrug it off as "all in my head" then I think you're missing the point. You can absolutely learn and grow from psychedelic experiences if you don't become too much of a reductionist and simply evaluate it for the experience it is. Personally, I've learned a lot about my psychological make-up, habits, fears, wants, needs, compulsions, aversions, etc. Belief in the experience isn't necessary as long as there is some meaning. It could be all an illusion, but who is to say that our everyday consensus reality is any less illusory than the realms Salvia brings us to? We put much credence in it, we can measure it, we attach our agreements to it. But does that make it real? What is real?
I would say that we place the label of 'real' onto things that have some meaning to us.
That's true, it's not exclusively a cultigen but viable seeds are quite rare. I'm glad to see more people attempting to produce viable seeds and doing the research into the genetics of the plant so that we might gain more knowledge about it. More viable seeds which we can propagate means more genetic diversity, which is overall a good thing
As for the gravity/pulling sensation I've felt it in all directions. I don't know if the direction of the pull indicates any differences in the experience itself. I have noticed that the direction of the pull can be dependent on the position my body is in after ingesting. If I sit upright in a chair for example, I always feel pulled backward.
Pulled and kneaded like salt water taffy.
