Anyone ever hear about this? I didn't lol
Soooooo philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre did mesc and this is what happened..
“Yeah, after I took mescaline, I started seeing crabs around me all the time. They followed me in the streets, into class. I got used to them. I would wake up in the morning and say, ‘Good morning, my little ones, how did you sleep?’ I would talk to them all the time. I would say, ‘OK, guys, we’re going to class now, so we have to be still and quiet,’ and they would be there, around my desk, absolutely still, until the bell rang."
What in the actual fuck? lol
Through psychoanalysis, Lacan and Sartre concluded that the crabs were a manifestation of Sartre’s fear of loneliness and becoming alienated from the people around him. The high dose of mescaline triggered his adolescent anxiety and induced an unpleasant feeling of isolation. Also, according to Lacan, Sartre hallucinated seeing crabs because he had developed an intense fear of sea creatures during his childhood. Although Sartre eventually recovered from the drug-induced neurosis, the crabs he had hallucinated affected his life in a profound way.
Trippy how Psychoanalytic work, which is focused on reintegrating the splintered sub-personalities of the psyche, caused the crabs and lobsters to disappear after ceaselessly following him for years.
My criticism of this article is the anti-drug propaganda in it. How can the author say Sartre's projections were "drug-induced neurosis" when it went away after psychoanalytic therapy? It's more accurate to say that the "drug" merely revealed what was already burgeoning deep within his psyche. Anywaysss, this makes me rethink the idea of "spirit animals". I used to think people said it for fun. I mean some do, but others may have been sharing something that went over my head..
Could "spirit animals" be messengers from deep within the psyche that guide you to your healing?
Has anyone here ever experienced being followed by entities like this after a trip?
Would love to hear experiences..
