Why are SWIM's visuals on lsd not as expected?

Every time that people, who have not tripped before, think of acid visuals, they envision things way beyond the slight distortions that SWIM has encountered. Is this because the dose is too low? Or are the crazy trips just part of societal exaggeration?

The dose could be to low.:)

It depends on what you’re expecting. If you thought it would be like in movies, where aliens and animals and shit appear, you have the wrong idea. Psychedelics don’t really do that.

It sounds like you took a small dose. Try a bigger one. Also, it helps to lie down and keep your eyes closed.

Visuals are very individual. Both in what they look like and how intense they get. Some people don’t have very visual experiences. It’s also different from time to time. I’ve had trips on mushrooms and mescaline where I didn’t see anything, even when combining the two. I’ve tripped with some people who hardly got any visuals on ayahuasca.

The thing about tripping is you should let go of all expectations. Especially about the visuals, because they’re such a small part of it.
