re: your quote
When I don't take my medication I see and hear things that aren't really there. People in the shadows, conspiracies that don't exist, entities telling me things that aren't real. Coincidentally I am also a published author, and all of my stories have been created when I've stopped taking my medication for extended periods of time. I have a much more vivid imagination when I'm not on the drugs, and a much more boring life when I'm taking them.
Has humanity developed a family of drugs (antipsychotics) that can block our ability to see and hear the spirit realm? It's entirely possible I suppose, but conventional scientific wisdom would suggest that the spirit real is a myth and the reality is entirely mundane except in a few individuals with overactive imaginations. I suppose it's handy (but entirely coincidental) that your theory of existence discounts the only currently accepted theory that would simultaneously disprove its own existence.
Just so you know, a "muse" is basically a schizophrenic personality. If you've ever talked to a schizo you'll know what I mean. It's the ability (inability?) to think in multiple and disjointed threads. As an example, I could be talking to you about shagging your missus, the word shagging could make me think of my own sexual experiences, my own experiences could make me think of school uniforms, school uniforms could make me thing of my primary school teacher who was a ginger buck toothed bird, bucked tooth birds could make me think of buggs bunny. So if you're talking to someone about some bird you shagged and they bring up buggs bunny in the next sentence, they're probably schizo. This quality allows them to write and generally be creative well, but is terrible for ordinary mundane interaction. It is not supernatural, it is a series of misused synapses in the brain.
