After taking the hallucinogen, Dr. Martin put on an eye mask and headphones, and lay on a couch listening to classical music as he contemplated the universe.
“All of a sudden, everything familiar started evaporating,” he recalled. “Imagine you fall off a boat out in the open ocean, and you turn around, and the boat is gone. And then the water’s gone. And then you’re gone.”http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/12/science/12psychedelics.html
pretty decent description from a presumably pretty intelligent guy.
its crazy how i have been filtering out the vast expanse of directions life offers. life isn't a maze with one path you have to tread through endlessly. i can stop for a second, look down at a blade of grass under my feet, sit down and feel the rich dirt under my fingers, seeping through my pores. feel myself absorbing into the earth, forgetting time and space. there is no tv noise. there is no pollution. there can be nothing but you and a world that you've put your careful attention towards creating. even when we don't pay attention closely, we're still creating our world, right? and thats when it strays, frays, you-i-we feel lost because none of it feels natural. this is when we have to pay attention.
God ain't got nothin' on me today
yes. more. i'm delirious, this is terrible. vomiting like forever. my head is a hot balloon. my legs are strawberry jelly. my guts are OMG WAIT DOGGGG!!!!
I think its pretty fucking dumb that I am constantly met by a homeless person asking for change at a certain downtown stoplight as i look ahead at my perfect view of this monstrosity and the accompanying futurist, expensive, skyscraping Ritz-Carlton.
This is fueling a possible move to the bay area. I'd like:
-a smarter populace?
-less money flying around me, in and out of people's mouths and asses
-large empty spaces to art and music
-less blissfully unaware too-comfortable people
p.s. rah rah about possibly legalizing pot. now lets move on to the serious things, those mysterious capped little wonders!
