In a short time, he was very important to me, always in the back of my mind when beginning a thread or even just commenting- trying to say something clever. What will Hip think of this?


Every post i've ever made on this site, this thought was actively in my head.

I hope i made you proud once or twice, Hip.

I'm stunned. I don't know what to say really. Very very sad day. He still had a lot more to live for. He just got his place out the country liked he had wanted and everything.

I sit here in absolute shock with tears welling in my eyes for a man I never got to meet in person yet one that has had one of the biggest, if not THE biggest, influence in my life in recent years.

I am so sad that I will never get to express my regard and love for you in person, you are truly a great spirit and I shall never forget you. You have been a superb role model and teacher and I shall miss you sorely my friend.

My condolences to your family and loved ones for their immense loss.

May your spirit smile down upon us all and may you put a giant smile on God's face when you deliver to him your sharp wit.;)

Why'd you haf to go and leave us so suddenly man?
I'm guna miss you so much.:cry::love::heartbeat

i always thought i was a wise guy, until i met you.
i always thought this world is dark, until i met you.
i always thought we cant change, until i met you.
i always thought life is hell, until i met you.
i always was afraid to change, until i met you.
i always thought i trip to far, until i met you.
(and read that http://mycotopia.net...829-post74.html)
i always thought nudity is porn, until i met you.
(and the wonderful BNL that opened my eyes to the wonder of
beauty, and you always wrote "what a beautiful eyes"
and i couldnt agree more, and thank you for that)

i`ll always love you.

thank you for showing me the door
ill keep it open until ill die.

thank you for teaching me the secrets of rough love,
i needed that lesson more than everything.

(and thank you for breaking my hurt today
a happy new year huh?)

an otopian community without a leader
is just, imo,
free people living in harmony.

p.s.

Hippie went to the shroomery and he posted the truth.
And he came back to try to settle any real complaints, using his only
alternate nick, GOD.

from:
http://mycotopia.net...-mycotopia.html

my reasoning is that
given that this universe is little more than patterns of energy and empty space,
and it too will 'die' some day
then the ultimate question becomes
not am i eternal but
is god ?
because if i am a pattern,
i can be created and destroyed and recreated at will,
as long as the memory of my pattern persists.
so the question of the persistence of memory is tied into god,
will he remember me, my pattern, once my time has passed ?
i believe that indeed the pattern of energy that I AM
is in the memory of god and
thus i can never truly perish.

I'm not one with words
but i'll try my best
to lay a buddy down
for his final rest

I felt the iron fist of hippie with my first post
he let me come back into his community
he taught me what i should of known
and what i know now

When i made mistakes he would set me straight
With thanks to the other people that he entrusted
with HIS place

within this space
he will live on

we live to die
life is prepreation for death
although most are not prepared
i'm sure hippie did not ask why

I'll always remember him as that kind guy
And now it is up to us
to keep his spirit alive

May you rest in peace brother !

the man was more of a father to me than my blood father anyday. i grew up on hip3 and im damn proud of it. i have known hip in one way or another since the drool donkey days and can firmly say he was a major influence on my life and the life of those i have brought into his haven of love and light called mycotopia. hip was a beacon and will be sorely missed. my condolences again to his family, friends, and the rest of the kids that grew up on hip3. :heart:

I've only been here a short time but thanks Hip for answering my lame ass questions that you had probably answered a thousand times.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge and beliefs (and sometimes lack of beliefs) with the world.

And thanks for starting this beautiful community.

You will be missed greatly.

Me too brother, I never even met my father. The Hip was one of the men that accepted me for who I was no matter how perverted and drunken I would act. I have been slowly learning from him for 8 years or so now and I will never forget the lessons taught.

RIP and thanks to all my brothers and sisters who shared the lesson :bow:

I'm Not Here

Don't stand by my grave and weep
For I'm not there, I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamonds glint on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grains
I am the gentle autumn's rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circle flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night
Do not stand by my grave and cry
I am not here, i did not die.

I don't think that I can sum up H3 in a a paragraph or well thought out idea depicting my thoughts and emotions as a result of his death.


My fondest thought is that he created a place for the free flow of ideas devoid of ignorance. I will be forever grateful and hope that our energies pass again in the next place.


H3, the world is a lesser place for your departure but you sure are and will forever be a beacon :heart:

I have only been here a few weeks, but in that time I came across a man whom could give me answers to almost any question I could ask. I know Hip was only 53 years old and that seems to young to pass away. I quess the only thing to be said about that is that only the good die young. I could only hope that I could gather as much wisdom and respect in my life that Hippie did in 53 short but wonderful years. If you read this, please bow your head and give a moment of silence for the man that brought us all here. I also would like to give my sympathy to Mrs. Hippie 3 and hope that she can someday fill the hole in her heart and her soul that Hip's passing has left, though I don't think she will ever fill such a hole. I now find myself tearing up eventhough I have never even met the man of whom I speak. One could go on for hours paying respect to the life we all now mourn and celebrate. I only wish I could have gotten to know Hippie better. RIP Hippie RIP

Much like many others, words cannot describe... i'm shocked, eyes welled up on the verge of tears upon hearing this moments ago..

I've been absent from Mycotopia for the better part of the last decade, but it goes without saying that Hippie3 changed my life back then, as I'm sure he has for a lot of us.

I am eternally grateful for his wisdom, knowledge and willingness to help

Rest In Peace, Brother

i've been around here for years
can count on two hands the user names i've had
as many times as hip3 kicked me off
i kept coming

hip and i never got along
but the forum he created has brought me
friends and a wealth of knowledge.

peace to hip's family
he now knows more than any of us... maybe

my first thought was: "WHAT THE FUCK!!"

how could it be that our rock,
our fearless leader,
our community father figure,
our teacher and mentor,
our fucking HIPPIE3 could have passed to the great beyond?

i feel the deep desire to find a flagpole somewhere, turn an american flag upside down and hang it at half mast...

i feel the deep desire to float a candle nestled in a bed of colonized straw down a river...

most of all i feel the deep NEED to teach someone the joys of mushroom cultivation...

hip, wherever i go i will remember what i've learned from you. people will continue to learn from your work for years to come...

hip, i'll raise one for you now, in hopes that you have found peace and love wherever you may be...

this ones for you hip...
