The Crypto-Cryptic GREEK Psychedelic STAMP Collection!

Albert Hofmann a Swiss chemist, was the first known person who discovered the psychedelic effects of LySergic acid Diethylamide (LSD)
A liquid solution of the LSD drug is soaked into blotting paper, which is then perforated into individual doses like “tiny Postage STAMPS” and artfully decorated with what is known as BLOTTER ART!
The letters of The Greek Alphabet are utilized as “symbols” & basically constitute the “language” of modern Theoretical Physics in the intricate & complex mathematical equations used, especially in Quantum Mechanics, etc. rather cryptic greek, no?
....After I’d arranged the individual paintings in a grid on the computer screen, they did look like miniature, psychedelic Postage STAMPS which perhaps could get one Mentally TRIPPING and also Visually HIGH!
Also Cryptocurrency or Crypto, is any form of currency that exists digitally or virtually.
Now, NFT stands for a non-fungible token, and in ART means that hidden in those quirky artworks, there's a unique and non-interchangeable unit of data, to establish proof of ownership and each STAMP can thus be valued in terms of NFTs.
Combining all the above ideas I arrived at the title:

Instead of Doors of Perception, I’ve named this collection of paintings, WINDOWS of PERCEPTION that open out onto limitless, infinite vistas of the Astral Immensity of the Cosmos...
The Zodiac QR-Codes are the KEYS which UNLOCK the Zip-Zap ZOOM Zodiac WINDOWS!!!
