A common occurrence reported by users of Salvia Divinorum is that of having
lived an entire alternate life in the few minutes of intoxication, and even
being surprised and confused for a moment while the drug wears off that
this is their real life and the one they remember was the drug induced one.

Perhaps something akin the Maury Effect is happening, where the *memory* of
having lived an entire alternate life is somehow created within the mind as
result of the drug effect, which would then be 1p indistinguishable from
actually having happened.

Salvia seems to have an uniquely dramatic effect on the mind's subjective
experience of episodic and semantic memory, identity, body image, time
duration, and consciousness.  I wonder what could be learned about how the
mind works by studying these in a scientific, experimental setting.
