The total of 569 distortions were classified as follows: . a) 162 changes of self . b) 120 changes of other persons . c) 101 changes of objects and environment . d) 186 changes of thought processes, notions of time and reality . The distortions were closely related to the social environment of the subject. . The paper contains 3 drawings made by subjects to illustrate their experiences under LSD.
