This is a theory I produced hiking with a friend sometime after my last trip:
So I'm walking with my friend on a beautiful hike. Everything is bright and beautiful. The result of my last trip.
I begin telling him that reality is bendable, even breakable, and it always has been. But, because we are afraid we don't allow reality to bend outside of circumstances that can explain it away. For instance, I take an eighth of mushrooms then, my reality is allowed to bend without me getting at the truth that it could always bend. Similarly with everything that bends reality. The highs and lows that we get from the things around us. I let something make me depressed and then when I look in the mirror I look like shit. I let something make me happy and then I look in the mirror and I look beautiful. I was considering that if you can move out of fear, then the powers that bend and break reality will manifest, but not until then.
It's like the unconscious built the conscious, but didn't really know what it would make. It made something and quickly realized that this thing couldn't handle what was happening, so it quickly built tons of mechanisms to protect it. Rationality that could explain away the bendiness of reality, etc.
I also threw out there that using mushrooms is like giving your conscious mind up to the unconscious. I was suggesting that the unconscious is infinitely more intelligent than the conscious, it already knows what the conscious needs, how reality needs to bend to accommodate it's thoughts and feelings. But, maybe it doesn't because it's been at this game for too long. Scared the shit out of the conscious enough times that it knows to let it's baby grow on it's own for the most part, until fear truly disappears, and the conscious can move into ultimate control.
Take a dose of mushrooms with the intent to let the unconscious tinker intelligently with the conscious's play things and then you start to see what you've been looking for in conscious daily life. Give up fear and let the world itself be transformed by something quite beyond.
I also considered that there is something ultimately existent in what we see of other people and that there's an interplay of realities as people come into contact. Each person is sort of going to see what they want to see to an extent. It's possible the most fearful one's reality will take precedence. I was overthinking this a bit. Haha.
Anyway, this was my theory and how I was thinking. I was toning down the religious elements by saying unconscious. Fun to think about at the time and felt pretty damn true as well. Makes me want to trip again soon. Haha.
But, it was just me having fun thinking.
