Archaeological evidence suggests the use of psilocybin-containing mushrooms as early as 9000 B.C., and few plants of the gods have ever been held in greater reverence. So sacred were these fungi that the Aztecs called them Teonanacatl ("divine flesh") and used them only in the most holy of their ceremonies.

Now, new studies have shown that more than 30 million Americans have used psychedelic substances in their lives. But what is their appeal? What effect do they have on the human mind?
