Effect Categories - Geometric patterns

Geometric patterns are defined as any subjective effect that introduces complex arrays of shapes, colours, symbols, patterns, geometry, form constants, and fractals to one's field of vision.

Within the context of psychedelic substances, effects within this category are often speculated to not simply be another form of hallucination, but instead a result of neurological signals and processes from various regions of the brain bleeding into the visual cortex and being reinterpreted as complex geometric forms.

This page lists the various auditory effects that can occur under the influence of certain psychoactive compounds.


  • Environmental patterning

    Environmental patterning is the experience of certain textures or objects, such as carpets, clouds, and dense vegetation, drifting into increasingly complex geometric patterns that are clearly comprised of the original material they are manifesting from. It is most commonly induced under the influence of moderate dosages of psychedelic compounds, such as LSD, psilocybin, and mescaline.

  • Geometry

    Geometry is the experience of a person's field of vision becoming partially or completely encompassed by fast-moving, colourful, and indescribably complex geometric patterns, form constants, shapes, fractals, and colours. It is most commonly induced under the influence of moderate dosages of psychedelic compounds such as LSD, psilocybin, and mescaline.

  • Visual exposure to inner mechanics of consciousness

    Visual exposure to inner mechanics of consciousness is the experience of being exposed to a mass of visual geometry comprised entirely of innately readable representations which subjectively feel as if they convey the inner mechanics that compose all underlying neurological processes.

  • Visual exposure to semantic concept network

    Visual exposure to semantic concept network is the experience of percieving a seemingly infinite mass of complex interconnected geometric forms comprised entirely of innately understandable representations. These individual geometric representations are perceived to simultaneously convey every internally stored concept and memory contained within the mind.
