A recent article from Scientific American discusses the link between drinking coffee and a person’s likelihood to experience hallucinations. Although the article concedes that more research needs to be done before any definitive conclusions can be drawn, it states:

“If you’ve consumed a lot of caffeine–the equivalent to seven cups of coffee–you are three times more likely to hear voices than if you had kept your caffeine intake to less than a cup of coffee.”

You can read a more scientific explanation of why scientists at the University of Durham in England believe this to be the case here, or you can go brew up another pot of coffee and start living out your own version of A Beautiful Mind. The choice is yours.
