VERY cool, Flash. So, pardon my ignorance, but I was raised to believe that the only stupid questions are those that aren't asked. In light of that, then, HOW do you think the psilocybin is clearing away the excess seratonin? Is it because the chemical structure is so similar that they are like magnets to each other?
OR, is it that clusterheads do not produce enough seratonin and the psilocybin is replacing what you are lacking? There is a guy in the guestbook this week who has found a way to INCREASE his seratonin level: direct contravention of your theory... (I've emailed him, asking for details). Your idea makes more sense though, there definitely has to be an excess of something going on here.
Keep up the good work, Flash.
p.s. feel free to email me directly if you wish.
