No drunks. It was great.
A friend of mine became religious after that night.

Not for the faint of heart.

No wondering "Am I feeling it?" A door was opened, you were pushed through it, and quickly.

Hi there!

Hi there!
When I tell my kids I survived the 70's, they just give me a curious look.

If they only knew.

What's different now is that more people don't survive; more really FU their lives.

I'm going to resurrect this thread because I'm awfully bored and I've nothing better to do.

For me, my acid trip went through stages, as far as the visuals went. In the beginning, what I can remember is that everything seemed all rather strange and 'interesting' I guess. You could start to see waves, I suppose, or breathing on the walls. I started to get really transfixed on objects, like a windchime or what-have-you. By the real middle and plateau of the trip, it was kaleidoscopes, swirls, static, and everything that you would associate with visual mindfuckery. But it wasn't that you 'saw' things, it was closer to your eyes being distorted. By the end of the trip, everything seemed to have a pattern, and there were colors in the night sky. I don't really remember much in the way of visuals, so maybe that's not helpful, but that's what stuck out for me.

But the most impactful part of the trip for me is the mental mindfuck. The best way I can describe it is a sensory overload. Your mind is racing at a thousand times a second trying to input what the fuck is going on. There was a point in the trip where it seemed like I was walking through a snowstorm, and I was trying to hold on to a walking stick by shoving it into the snow and holding on for dear life. That's how my mind visualized what was going on. It's really not worth fighting the mindfuckery, because you'll freak out. You will freak out. I did and it is not fun. For me, when I freaked out, I was convinced that I was going insane, and that I'd be like that forever, because I was going insane, and that I'd be like that forever, because I was going insane. Do you see how your mind works while on acid? That was how it was for me, at least. Music really doesn't do much for me, or at least, to my recollection. I don't remember listening to music in the real plateau of the trip. I can recall listening to The Piper at the Gates of Dawn and See Emily Play in the beginning of the trip and a friend who had dropped a bit before us, who was already really feeling the effects, started proclaiming that I sounded exactly like Syd Barrett. I know that Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, and various other 'psychedelic' artists were playing during the night but I cannot remember ever listening to them.

Even having that happen, I would do it again. It was the highlight of my summer, and I know that it will sit on my highlights of my life when I'm old and grey.
Thanks from imaginethat

But here's the deal. You and everybody else are insane. Look at the damned world. Is it sane?

"Sanity" or "normalcy" is an illusion, though highly prized by our egos, or natural minds. as some call them.

Psychedelic drugs don't cause insanity. People freak out because they no longer can hide from all the insanity. They cannot accept their own insanity, or the institutions and doctrines/religions they have accepted as "normal."

Normal is as illusory a concept as is "growing up."

This is probably the best way to put it, and naturally you'd put it in easy to grasp terms. ^^

Basically the only reason one should really freak out on acid is to fight it. You fight the sensory overload of the visuals and you fight your mind coming to terms with the actual reality. If you fight the beast, you will lose. You will not win against the LSD beast. It is stronger and more powerful than even the most resilient walls that a mind can build up. It will tear down every single wall you've erected and it will step over every single trench and it will evade every single minefield and dodge every machine gun nest you lay inside your mind. The best thing you can do is open the gates and let it in.

When you let go of the illusions and the falsities and most importantly, your ego, you can lose your mind and play. LSD makes even climbing on a jungle gym one of the most enjoyable experiences of one's life.

So, the question arises and honestly deserves an answer: Why isn't climbing a jungle gym as enjoyable when we're "normal?"

Personally, I think LSD brings a person's mind back to a time when everything was new, so to speak. It lets a person enjoy things for the first time, and I mean, like, enjoying a walk in the fresh air for the first time in your lifetime. It lets to remember a day before today, when you were young.
