A hallucinogen (from Latin(h)alūcinātio "thoughtless talk, reverie"; from Greekἀλύειν halýein "to be out of one's mind" and γένεσις genesis "birth, emergence, generation") is a psychotropic substance that triggers hallucinations that distort thinking and perception. Hallucinogens can acutely cause states similar to psychosis even in healthy people. The hallucinations can be blissful luciferic, but also anxiety-filled ahrimanic.
