Sartre once took a large dose of mescaline and said that for months later he constantly saw this group of lobsters/crabs following him around. I was wondering if this is really possible. Does HPPD reach a visual perception change that is so intense? He often mentions lobsters/crabs randomly in his novels but I always wondered if his experience was a bit over exaggerated.

Here's an article on it.

Sartre was a hack anyway. Being and Nothingness is fundamentally flawed and reads like an attempt to recapture the tradition of phenomenology with a well intentioned misreading.

Sartre was always a better playwright then philosopher.

My two cents.

As to the validity of the possibility: yes. I would add that Sartre's symptoms were mild as compared to those you might read around the web. Interesting none the least.
The metaphysical comfort--with which, I am suggesting even now, every true tragedy leaves us--that life is at the bottom of things, despite all the changes of appearances, indestructibly powerful and pleasurable--this comfort appears in incarnate clarity in the chorus of the satyrs, a chorus of natural beings who live ineradicably, as it were, behind all civilization and remain eternally the same, despite the changes of generations and of the history of nations.

Ontology has it backwards. “This ‘saying to the Other’ — this relationship with the Other as interlocutor, this relation with an existent — precedes all ontology; it is the ultimate relation in Being”
