The term psychedelic, coined to describe drugs that allow one's mind to heavily influence one's cognitive and perceptual reality, comes from two greek roots: psyche, mind or spirit, and delos, manifesting. Psychedelics, from the user's perspective, reify the mind. Funkadelic, which is today sometimes used as a an adjective, thus means "making the funk so real you could spoon it up with a funky spoon and pour it on your funky head."
