(Daily Mail)   The first scientific evidence of a higher state of consciousness has been found in people tripping on acid. Damn straight, dude, I told you the walls could breathe   ( dailymail.co.uk) divider line

Jesus, I could have told those eggheads that.

Thank goodness the little people are protected by Johnny Law from gaining access to these drugs. They're dangerous you know and will kill you faster than you can say, "Becky".

Fun fact: today is the 74th anniversary of "the first trip", when Albert Hofmann took LSD and went for a bike ride.

I know. Why the fark in the middle of the week?

Wish they just picked a weekend, the parties would be amazing.

So I'm rappelling down Mount Vesuvius when suddenly I slip, and I start to fall. Just falling, ahh ahh, I'll never forget the terror. When suddenly I realize "Holy shiat, farkingismybusiness, haven't you been smoking Peyote for six straight days, and couldn't some of this maybe be in your head?" And it was. I was totally fine. I've never even been to Mount Vesuvius.

There is no higher state of consciousness.

Daily Fail article, so I now doubt the existence of LSD, consciousness and people.
 
2017-04-19 04:34:15 PM  
Yep, when I'm looking for a reliable news source for science, especially neuroscience, the first and only place I turn to is the Daily Mail.
 
2017-04-19 04:35:13 PM  
Well, I for one am glad that folks can rely on the Daily Mail for sound, scientific news reporting.

I turned into a werewolf, but it got better. My senses were sharp as a knife, the razor's edge. Then we chilled some, just took in the night.  I could see the electricity dancing on the telephone wires and the life force shining in everything. Pretty damn neat for $10.

Next time I'd like to do it camping at Arches. The lava tubes at Sunset crater was a mistake, but still fun. Lots of little scratches though.

It's not that LSD heightens your consciousness, it's that all that other stupid shiat you're doing that lowers it
 
2017-04-19 04:40:05 PM  
But this is the first study into brain-signals that allow people to reach a higher state of consciousness .

No it's farking not.

So, you're saying there's a lower state of consciousness.

Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Heres Tom with the Weather.

I recently listened to a podcast that had Dennis McKenna as a guest.  He had a very interesting take on psychedelics and the brain.  He said something to the effect that our minds have these "filters" that block out background noise that is unessential to our survival.  And that psychedelics (psilocybe, tryptamines, lsd, etc) merely temporarily remove these "filters", allowing us to see things that are always there but we just have no need to see or experience them.

Also.  I wonder what the brain scans would have looked like had the subjects ingested various tryptamine compounds.

Some people like cheeba, some like brew
I get mad lifted off a gallon of glue
Pretty soon I spin like a top
In the middle of the room and the shiat won't stop
Know what I see when I trip?
The rats in the basement all start to flip
All through my building from door to door
I swear there's a fire, so I piss on the floor
Now down the corridor was old fat Ned
Scheming on a blowjob from a crackhead
He was like, "Hey, want a piece little man?"
I was like, "Yo, I'm better off with my hand"
Oh shiat, reality returns
I need another hit but the glue won't burn
I'm cuckoo and murderous, just plain nuts
Smoking Sodium Pentothal, cigarette butts and Trippin'

I think the last time I went on such a bike ride... I mysteriously grew gills and webbed hands.  So I just swam home.

They should allow Ketamine OTC. Short half life, a 10 minute trip and your back from heaven.

the afterglow bliss lasts for days and has proven neuroregenerative properties. K in propylene glycol will allow a severed spinal cord to regrow perfectly.

Psychedelics are the best.

I had a buddy in highschool that had a bad stuttering problem.  Got made fun of for it.  Was kind of a quiet shy kid because of it.  Even attempted suicide once.  Damn good skateboarder though.  Had him try mushrooms once, stopped stuttering during the trip.  Once he came down he never stuttered again.

If it is all subjective, I'll just label time on acid a better state. The biggest value to me was learning that such a small amount of chemical could change my perspective so greatly. I got much better at changing my own perspective, which helped with anxiety and anger. I didn't conquer those emotions, but I don't suffer so much. Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

//It ain't what it was
///But it's better than what it is within a good set and setting
