Yeah, sure. I'll describe one entity encounter.
So I was having trouble with my relationship with my mom, which is actually par for the course. I went into a trip with the intention of doing some "work" on myself, to further my understanding, explore ideas on just what is ailing me and what i can or should do about it. I meditated on the thought that I needed to "see" more detail about a kind of blind spot in my understanding. I knew there was a short-circuit somewhere in my mind, an absence, a malfunction, a comprehension that might be common but nonetheless was missing in my psyche.
I wanted to see. I wanted to know. I wanted to fix my life, and high on the list of things-to-do to accomplish this was to repair my fucked up relationship with my mother.
Well, as I was meditating on these thoughts, and as the mushroom energy started to hum, it was as if my earlier meditations had moved outward from my mind like light from a star, and had reached through the psychic interstellar space to an alien a being whose existence rested on a different set of postulates, unlike the reality we know now and are most familiar with. It was as if the parameters of reality itself were simply different in this space. The mushroom tuned my mind like a person might fiddle with the dials of an old radio to pick up different stations.
I was observant of a reality unlike my own, but just as understandable. Though I say we can understand this other reality as easily as our own sounds simple and easy at face value, I urge you to consider that human beings spend their entire lifetimes becoming competent or skillful at perceiving only a few narrow fields of study at most, in our ordinary, sane world. A doctor will undergo 23 years of education to acquire the title. They will also spend the rest of their lives refining their skills, always realizing that how far there is to go to obtain a complete understanding is so much further than what one can achieve in a single human lifetime. And so, this wisdom always leaves the most learned and wise feeling little more than humble.
Similarly, a study of this strange but real layer of existence could keep an astute observer occupied for a lifetime. These alternate realities, or "dimensions" as some call them, are universes of complexity as grand and as magnificent as our own.
So I was watching this reality unfold, and seeing this being in the forefront of my mind, no differently than one may observe a rhinoceros in Africa, yet this was not a rhinoceros, but something so novel and new to my mind that I gasped in wonder. More than an animal also was it. More than a man. Perhaps even more than man.
It had a form, a reality, a shape, color, and texture. And it had more than the eye could observe in a moment. It took time for it to reveal itself in all its complexity. It was the difference between looking at a still photograph or watching a movie. This thing was evolving before my mind's eye, changing. But changing not in a happenstance, random, or nonsensical way. It metamorphosized in my thoughts with markedly delilberate and intentional ways. It was like watching a dancer, or a musician, or a comedian practical joker who was exquisitely brilliant and refined in their craft. Not only did they put on a display, but they asked you... moment by moment... how you were feeling and reacting to what they showed.
And as you answered in your mind, they responded to your answer, and modified their display based on how you reacted to it. This occurred, moment by moment, completely and intensely throughout the psychedelic experience.
And so a conversation began. It did not occur in words, but to try and give it meaning that could be domestically understood, it might go like this:
Me, confused, amazed, perplexed, enthralled: "I see you! I can hear your thoughts! How do you do that? What are you? Who are you?"
It: "Oh, you silly small thing... forgotten something have you?"
Me: "What? Oh! You insult me! Why? I'm not stupid/silly/small" ***INTERRUPTED by instantaneous response to my assertion before I can finish thinking it***
It: "ha! You THINK you are BIG?
The entity swells in size, growing larger every second, but not at a linear rate. It increases from the size of a cat to the size of a tree, and as I'm overwhelmed by the massive presence, it then grows further, faster. Soon it's the size of the full moon resting just above the horizon, when it glows amber and gives the optical illusion of a huge sphere in space - which is exactly what it is, yet when we see it high up in the sky we think of it more like a coin held at arm's length.
And then it grows bigger. Like the planet you're standing on. And you realize what GRAVITY is. The immensity of the matter required to bend spacetime so that you are pulled toward the bends through the 4th dimension.
Then it grows bigger. It's like watching the size comparison of the stars, starting from brown dwarfs, to our sun, then to Sirius, a blue giant. Then to Betelgeuse, a red hypergiant. Then to VY Canis Major, something similar to a star but so huge as to only be described as a nuclear furnace the size of a nebula. Which, of course, is all contained within a galaxy. Which is what I was forced to see next, like the way a fire hydrant forces you to drink if your mouth is only six inches away.
And it grew again. The universe. Time. Other dimensions. The immeasurable eternities of time experienced in the immeasurable numbers of lifetimes, not just of human beings, but of EVERYTHING.
And so, this entity and I had barely made our introductions, and we were only 5 seconds into the conversation.
That conversation lasted about 5 hours.
And would probably take the rest of my life to explain.
