>LSD lowers serotonin re-uptake{basically the ability of brain to utilize serotonin,one of the brain's chemicals, creating lowered serotonin circulation&activity in the brain} which causes the psychodelic's infamous hallucinations.
Low serotonin levels can happen naturally too{see an example below}, sometimes enough to cause hallucinations.
I'm not saying serotonin is the ONLY reason behind hallucinations tho.
Also, reading the postings here, it's obvious some hallucinatory experiences are pleasant, while others are nightmarish.

Low serotonin is also infamous for causing depression. Or, some argue,depression can change the brain enough to cause a state of low serotonin. and/OR,others say, it's a vicious cycle that perpetuates itself in a dog-chasing-its-tail pattern. Can be a short-term or a chronic problem. -- Misk<
