I believe that ibogaine might interrupt any deeply engrained 
pattern of behavior. Possibly this is related to the function of 
the area of the brain that is damaged by super high doses in rats: 
cells in the cerebellum that control the patterns of coordinated 
muscle behaviours that we call locomotion, I believe. Which I'm 
guessing explains the ataxia that people feel on ibogaine and 
possibly some of the heart failures. Under this hypothesis I'll add 
that ibogaine tends to take out the patterns of dysfunctional 
behaviors first because stress brings out weakness.
