Quite possibly, though I wouldn't want to overdo it.

Psychopharmacology has been hamstrung by the premature classification of a variety of things as useless.

Can you help me to write a wikipedia article about intellectual curiosity? Apparently there wasn't any article about it.

I'm not that impressed with Psylocybin, which i tried a couple of times. Sure it leads to some new insights, but the effects are not always permanent. I'm more fan of methoxetamine, which makes you look at the world in a less biased view.

I have never tried methoxetamine, but it seems to be a dissociative drug (NMDA receptor antagonist), like Ketamine and PCP. These drugs are more toxic and addictive than 5-HT2A receptor agonists, like psilocybin and LSD.

I like Ibogaine more than magic mushrooms, but it is also more toxic (dangerous) than magic mushrooms. I like magic mushrooms because they aren't additive, have a low toxicity and are easy for people to grow. LSD might be a better choice, but it is difficult for people to make. Mescaline is also an interesting drug, but the cacti grow very slowly, unlike mushrooms. There is also much more research on psilocybin than on other psychedelics (http://www.citypaper.com/news/features/bcp-032917-feature-psychedelics-20170328-25-story.html),

I think the magic mushrooms are nice in the moment itself but after that there's little left of it. Methoxetamine is indeed a dissociative but not very well comparable with ketamine, since it's more of a spiritual experience which makes you distill things to their core values instead of just feeling weird Wink.
