I posted this on 8 years ago when i first met hippie and joined mycotopia, he like it so much that he immortalized my name here forever and posted it in the mission statements. I am OHIATEONETOO whos name is written at the bottom of this or otherwise known as oi812/BGB.
I think he would want us to all read it again and really take in what the author is saying. Much love to you hipster, you changed my life and I will never forget what you saved me from and introduced me to. Love ya hipster...

a quote from George Carlin

<table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0"> <tbody><tr> <td class="alt2" style="border: 1px inset ;"> The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spendmore, but have less. We buy more but enjoy less. We have bigger houses but smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. we have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgement, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness. We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, we stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch tv too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possesions, but reduced our values.

We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to our life not life to our years.

We've been all the way top the moon and back, but we have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conqured outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things. We've cleaned up te air, but polluted the soul. We've conqured the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes.

These are the days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose to share this insight, or to just hit delete.

Remember, spend time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart that dosen't cost a cent. Remember, to say "I love you" to your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A KISS and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak, and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind- give time to thank God for all he has blessed you with. </td> </tr> </tbody></table>

This was just a little something I wanted to share with you guys.

i know i didnt know hip very well but he's still been a positive influence on me. before i came to topia i had no desire to read or try to learn about science, chemistry, biology, botany, just to name a few catagories. but through this site i made many connections between my interests and other subjects that i thought were totally different. to put it short, at first i came here to learn how to grow shrooms and other goodies to get stoned but i sit here now with a head full of knowledge, and not just about entheogens, but about life, myself, our connection to this planet and with eachother. i dont know if this sounds wierd or what but this site has helped me grow as a person alot and i dont know where i'd be if not for topia. for that, i can never thank you enough Hippie, you'll always have a place in my heart,

~ RIP Hippie3 ~
