I used to take ‘golden tops’ and or blue meanies (both varieties of what we termed magic mushrooms) ~35years ago and did always feel ‘wiser’ and this feeling of a deeper and more complex understanding of myself and the universe in a spiritual way (not objectively because I had not quantified any DATA but still more than just subjectively?). It has been at least 20years since I last took some and I think I am the worse for that especially in aspects like psychological insight, awareness of beauty, positive social effects (e.g. empathy), positive mood (e.g. inner peace), amazement, etc.
On a bit of a tangent, where I grew up, we had dogs. We had one “pet” dog and usually several hunting dogs. The hunting dogs were never allowed out except to go hunting. Never allowed to play or just be dogs. The common thought was that if they played, they wouldn’t want to hunt. Our “pet” dog was just that. They were for playing with and being with the family but they were never allowed inside the house. They were fed and lived outside. Mercifully, they were never chained up except the one Dobie we had that really didn’t like visitors much so we had to restrain him when we had company until he settled down.
