Your proposition is basically what my TIME postulate is all
about. What Bruno is suggesting is that the smoking of certain plants
induces a conscious state that contradicts TIME. I'm not prepared at
this stage to follow in his footsteps, so have to simply take his
observations (and of others in the Salvia forum) on face value. I do not
know how TIME may be modified to reconcile it with this observation,
yet remain in place for the deduction of quantum mechanics.
