Let me begin with a confession. I have never taken any recreational
or psychedelic drug in my whole life or used any plant or chemical
substances to stimulate my mind. Not even once. I am often driven
by curiosity to know things, but in this case, I decided to trust
my self-preservation instinct rather than experiment with truth.
Therefore, certainly I am not an authority on this subject. However,
I am conversant with the subject and the issues and problems associated
with it. I will speak from that perspective.
There are many psychological theories and explanations about
love at first sight and first impressions, but without conclusive
proof. According to one opinion reactions such as love at first
sight are surface impressions. Those feelings may not survive, unless
they are reinforced and become deep and intense, which again depends
upon many factors.
