Your nerve cells are called neurons, and their chemical messengers are called neurotransmitters. Chemicals like hallucinogens can disrupt this
In the final seven lines (21-28) of the poem “Dulce et Decorum Est”, Wilfred Owen employs visceral language and carefully chosen diction that juxtaposes the heinous reality of firsthand experience with the removed nationalist deception concerning war. When describing the death of his comrade, the author evokes different senses with both literal and figurative language, as well as sound effects.

digressions seem like accidental interruptions in the poem, they are actually here to serve as indirect commentary for the main plot, the “Revenge” and the “Slaughter” between the human being and wild monsters, and the road of a hero to gain his fame and glory.

It is propagated vegetatively by the Mazatecs, and no wild specimens of the plant have been observed by researchers. The diterpene salvinorin A is the chemical responsible for the visionary
