Define metaphysical world.
How are LSD experiments relevant?
Define UFOs. Source for Brennan, Clapper assertions? If true, why would that be relevant?
Define reality.
Not sure what the actual topic is here. Once you answer my questions maybe it will make sense.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up, why would you have to lie?
