The Spirit Molecule rocks my world every time I pick it up. Hooray for a scientific approach to the psychedelic experience!:headbang:
I am reading The Spirit Molecule right now and got thinking about 'beings' that manifest themselves in trips.
Isn't it great how the Philosophy of Human Experience can hijack a thread? :eusa_clap for posing a question that ended up probing this deep into the Human Psyche!
I wanted to see how many have had experience with beings (I know of quite a few from reading spice reports already) on ANY substance. I am even more interested in ones seen on mushrooms.
I also wondered what level of interaction people have had with them and whether the encounter had a purpose or obvious meaning?
I have not had one yet (never had DMT), but I would kind of like an encounter of my own.
Any takers? I thought it deserves its own thread.
I also see "alien hieroglyphs" but my inner eye interprets them as advanced mathematical equations, the "Universal Language" as it were. I swear that if I had a PhD in Pure Mathematics I could "read" my visual hallucinations!
I have seen the "alien hieroglyphs"
It scrolled across my vision..... I have no idea what it meant...
As far as entities go, I have only ever caught fleeting glimpses of "them", and only on DMT. Their purpose to me so far has been to say, "Hey! Look at this!" or "We're always here, waiting for you to return." Other psychedelics make me feel more connected with nature, people, and this physical universe, while DMT throws my consciousness into a completely different universe which is equally as real, whether it is chemically inspired or parallel to this one along a directional axis I don't understand! Just because it might be random electricity in the brain doesn't make it any less real; after all [as Irishlion hinted at] all perception, sober or otherwise, is merely brain electricity when you boil it down!
This guy highly recommends the 1884 book or 2007 film "Flatland" as a delicious analogy to the psychedelic experience. We are 3-dimensional creatures rocketed suddenly into a 4-dimensional perception IMHO.
