heroic dose
 n.— «If you’re not taking so much that going into it you’re afraid you did too much, then you didn’t do enough. Not the way people will take it to go to the movies, go to the beach, this and that. No, I talk about what I call “heroic” doses and “committed” doses. And if you only do heroic doses, then every trip will count.» —by Terence McKenna The Archaic Revival May 8, 1992.
