psihi (ψυχή – psyche, “soul”) and dilosi (δήλωση – “manifest”)
The term psychedelic is derived from the Ancient Greek words psihi (ψυχή – psyche, “soul”) and dilosi (δήλωση – “manifest”), translating to “soul-manifesting”. A psychedelic experience is characterized by the striking perception of aspects of one’s mind previously unknown, or by the creative exuberance of the mind liberated from its ostensibly ordinary fetters. Psychedelic states are an array of experiences including changes of perception such as hallucinations, synesthesia, altered states of awareness or focused consciousness, variation in thought patterns, trance or hypnotic states, mystical states, and other mind alterations.
