Citation :Will there ever be a time that you learnt your lessons and stop living for the shroom, but you start living for the works of life on this planet?


You can never learn enough Wink
I also tend to forget about a lot of stuff during normal life and I need to be reminded again and again.
I have also had trips where I suddenly learned the lesson I had been given during the last few weeks in normal life.

If you ask me "why do you still take mushrooms after you have had a few trips with high doses?" you might as well ask: "why do you still live?"
The answer would be the same, because it's interesting, because it's enjoyable to progress. You will never reach the point of total knowledge, you can learn until you die!

Brew: I will look into that mescalin story. I dont believe you right away, I am sure Terence Mckenna during one of his famous lectures talked about mescalin and the LD50. Contradictory with what you write here so to be continued.,.

Just read this:

Citation :Pas: Will there ever be a time that you learnt your lessons and stop living for the shroom, but you start living for the works of life on this planet?


Who lives for the shroom? You? Or are you assuming someone else?

Where does it say the shroom needs tribute? Or ritual? Or that it required some monkeybrain to eat them to just be in this world?

No one lives for the shroom, that remark is actually preposterous Smile

What works do you mean? Isnt nature and the gifts in there the most beautiful work one can do?

Thanks for the reminders Tryptonaut and HC. Both right. Learn 'till you die. With and without the shrooms.
I remember a time sitting in the train overthinking my life. It was the time I had just started working. And after a year of drawing grey concrete bridges and tunnels, I thought: my God, am I going to do this my whole life? So this is it? At that moment I found I needed a purpose in life, for my mental health. And I picked wisdom to be my goal for the rest of my life. A never to be reached goal, I am no Einstein. But just by picking this goal, I know it worked for me since then. And I don't remember I ever felt that bored, senseless (destructive) feeling again.

That the shroom had come on my path now is no coincedence.

Right now, it seems that I live for the shroom, the way I'm always going to check on them every hour.

There is no quest more noble than the quest for knowledge. I had a similar epiphany to Pazusu after I finished school. I had no idea why I had become so depressed once I left college but I eventually figured out that I was just bored because I stopped learning. About this time is when I started using psychedelics again. Drugs have nothing to do with my happiness or over-all well being, I've just started looking at them from a different point of view.

Heart, mesc really is the safest drug out there, there are no recorded deaths. And you cant believe everything T. McKenna says, alot of it is plain wrong or just speculation. I realize that he made many contributions to the psychonautical community and made alot of information available to people who were seaking it but the man had a BS in ecology and conservation. He was not a doctor nor a scientist, just a guy who used drugs and wrote about them.

Well I tend to disagree about what you say about Mckenna simply because the comment you make here, is a poetic argument and no more than that. Not meant personally but I've seen it before. People dissing Mckenna without giving a real reason, as you just did. No offense intended bro.

I may have misunderstood him, or maybe he was talking about another substance, I dont know, thats why I didnt post it as a fact.

Now if you have any example of where Terence was actually wrong, please share .

Edit:

Ok it seems you are completely correct about mescaline and that its a safe drug to take. I suspect I misunderstood Terence and he was talking about another substance. I will check it out sometime but not today. Smile

Edit:

Deadly dose is about 30x the effective dose they claim here. Not sure if thats true, but if it is, is doesnt make it the safest drug, but still safe enough to experiment with.

Most of T. McKenna's writings and theories were just wild speculations and crazy hippie bull shit. I can't say they were wrong, they're just not backed up with any scientific proof or evidence of reasearch and analysis which makes them sound like the nonsensical rants of a crazy person. One of the theories he's most famous for is his "Novelty Theory" which makes absolutely no sense what-so-ever " ..time is a fractal wave of increasing novelty which culminates dramatically in the year 2012."

Then there's his "Stoned Ape" theory which suggests that we walk on two legs, developed language and started raising our young to a mature age simply beacause apes started eating hallucinogenic mushrooms. I'm sorry but if you believe that the only reason that we evolved is because humans ate mushrooms then, well...

None of his writing is backed up by science which makes it very hard for me to take any of it seriously. I own the Mushroom Growers Guide written by McKenna but that's the only writing of his that I have any faith in. Try reading his Timewave Zero theory.

Did you actually ever read invisible landscapes? The notion about 2012 is the least important info in that book which you would know if you read it. Its very easy to bash it, I know. I guess no one knows untill 2012.

I dont believe it myself but what I do find interesting, is that by using psychedelic mushrooms, Terence was presented with a mathematical structure, hidden in an ancient chinese set of symbols that magically, point to an end date that is the same end date, as the mayan calandar. The only thing Terence and the Mayas had in common, was that they had this taste for psilocybin mushrooms.

You have probably never read the book about this and never listened to the 8 hour lecture he did. To date, I find this theory (and I know the details by heart), much more plausible in explaining how human consiousness evolved. It was just one theory, no one says its the only plausible theory but you.

Instead of just moving air (moving bits in this case), why dont you come with some arguments out of this theory and explain why they cant be true instead of making anyone with an open mind who looks at this theory, look like an idiot. Because thats all you do with these remaks.

I read invisible landscapes a number of times and love the wealth of information regarding out beloved enheogens, sjamanism and what not. Try reading it again I would say Wink

And even an obvious hoax like, whats his name, this infamous pseudo archeologist with the german name, cant remember his name. He wrote books like where the gods aliens and stuff like that. His theories where taken up by science and more or less ridiculed.

I have yet to see any biologist or darwinist take up the glove and disprove Terence stoned ape theory once and for all. If you have any good explanation about how human consiousness came into existance thats better than 'pure chance'and cosmic rays, I back off.

But I know you wont Wink

No, I never know when to quit. And I appologize if I came off as condescending, I don't mean to bash anyone's beliefs.

I do find some of his writing interesting but it is far from scientific. I have read invisible landscapes and I feel it's one of his best.

But, as I said, HE provides no evidence to support any of his hypothesies. That's the reason no darwinist bothers to argue against his case, there's nothing to argue against. He just came up with an idea one day and said " Hey, maybe apes ate mushrooms and that's the reason our species evolved."

You could just as easily say that we evolved because we started eating our own shit. There's nothing to prove or dis-prove it. It's just a wild idea conjured up by someone with no scientific,sociologic, psychologic or archaelogic knowledge.

Personally, I believe we all descended from the first two humans, Adam and Eve. PRAISE JESUS!!!! Amen.

He provides to my mind, very good arguments with the stoned ape theory. Very simple to follow and they make sense.

I dont say I believe it, to me its the most valid explanation as why humans are so different from animals. No Darwinist has come close to a valid explanation yet.

Did you ever read the entirey theory?

There is a shitload of indirect evidence and good solid arguments to his case.

Here's some nutshell info:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terence_McKenna

But if you dont know the theory, you would do good to familiarize yourself with it before bashing it. If you did, I would love to hear exactly what points you find hard to believe Wink

Edit:

You know, I'm not a believer or follower of Terence Mckenna. He would turn in his grave if I would say something else. Some wild theories he had, he was the first to admit that they where far fetched. As for the novelty theory, he always said, we will know for sure at 2012 right?

The stoned ape theory is one that he believed in himself a lot. And it makes sense, once you look at all the arguments, he build a very strong case. For one thing, I find his theory much more plausible than the notion that human consiousness evolved by chance or because of cosmic rays.

And there is more. I don't know if you are aware of this but appearently, the biggest mystery of evolution on our planet, is the almost doubling in size of the human brain within a milion years. There is no other organ or anything else in the fosil record, that did this in such a short amount of time. The stoned ape theory, solves this problem also. No other theory that I'm aware of, exists that deals with this in a way that its credible.

You should have read something before posting this because its absolute bullshit. I cite:

Citation :They convince themselves they are at the center of a grand cosmic conspiracy, and that the only way to resolve the crisis is to do more drugs, and to get other people to do more drugs to see how right they are. This was the logic that trapped Timothy Leary, John Lilly, Terence McKenna, and many other latter-day prophets like Zoe-7.


Terence didnt take conspiracy theories serious at all. I don't know this James Kent but the assumptions here about Mckenna and even Leary, are just wrong.

Terence never felt himself a messiah or guru or leader. Get your facts straight please before repeating someone else bullshit about someone you know nothing about.

Sorry to come across harsh but Terence was one of the greatest minds of our time, very humble, very selfcritical and never pretended to know what its all about.

He didnt believe all his theories himself, and he always was the first to admit. However, the stoned ape theory is grand.

He never claimed, as is mentioned in that article, that he contacted aliens. Au contrary, he said, 'most likely, we see the entities in the DMT trip, as aliens because we just dont have a better description.


I'll write up his stoned ape theory in a nutshell tonight.

In my opinion discussions may be heated, often this is for the better of the discussion. As long as no personal attacks are made. Mzfly, if you reread what I said to you and how you responded, you will see that I attacked the information you put there, not you personally. Calling me a pour soul was uncalled for in my opinion.

Hi everybody

Have you ever had any bad trips? How did you deal with it? Did it affect you for a long time, or did you get over it quickly?

(I ask this as a part of my ongoing research on entheogens in spiritual practice. Replies can be quoted from in my upcoming research paper. See entheogenstudy.org if you are interested in being more broadly interviewed about your entheogen practice.)

I never experienced a traumatizing bad trip, but i think that it is essential to not just put the trip behind. You need to integrate the experience, understand its lessons, talk about it with people you trust to really go on. Also you need to really take time before tripping again to rest and take care of yourself.

The psychedelic isn't bad itself but your inner self can really give you a lesson the hard way. Also if the setting is not right, you could be traumatized by outside elements and the fear and panic it can cause you. But the way of dealing with the bad trip is the same. It's all about understanding and love (caring).

I agree with Sludge, life itself can be a bad trip. the psychedelic experience is to absorb, make it their own and understand how we can improve.

wisely used, psychedelic medications can bring out episodes/energies latent, but even these (like any medicine), these will can heal only superficially, without giving light to the Shadow of the unconscious repressed psychic.

when we talk about love, we talk about love for ourself, when we really are in peace and harmony, we want that all the world we will be in peace and harmony, I understood this from the experiences, good and bad, with psychedelics, we destroy the selfishness


How do I deal with bad trips?
with the calm, with breathing (of diaphragm), with communication, knowing that they are already exceeded situations, can change the characters and the scenery, but the stories are repeated

Being with people we trust, trying to be sure that everyone is well informed on what they consume, what dose and which effects they expect. Also it's very important to be aware of what or who will be around you when you trip. I prefer to be around people knowing that we may be tripping, people that won't judge us, make fun of us or trying to get us mad. So, I prefer to be in a psychedelic party or in nature, but not in a crowded city for instance. Also I prefer to be sure that police is not around or other things that will get us overly stressed.

Also if the product last long, I always make sure that everyone will have the time to rest and won't have responsibilities, having to drive go to work the next day, etc.
For example, effects of LSD last 10 to 20 hours. But you need a solid 36 to 48 hours to rest.

I had difficult experiences (not bad but challanging).

If you want to do a psychedelic session take your time to think about set and setting. Take your time to prepare.

I would not take a psychedelic in the middle of a busy city or town. I would advise to avoid busy places.
It, s important to pick a safe and comfortable place to trip.
Think about what it is you want to get out of the trip and what it is you want to do during your journey.
Remember that when you take a psychedelic it, s like everything comes thru the senses unfilterd.
Outside stimuli can become intrusive or annoying.
Normal sounds like cars passing by for example can become a bit intrusive sometimes.
Also it, s easier to focus on your trip. when you are not botherd by outside stimuli.

MAPS put out a video about what to do in case of a bad trip. One of the things they say in this video is: When somebody has a bad trip take them to a quite room.


One thing that helps me a lot when having a bad trip or a difficult experience, is using my voice. One thing you can do is sing. You could make the aum sound. Or you can chant other mantra, s such as ohm mani padme hum, ohm shanti, or namu amida butsu.

If you want to listen to music i would advise atmospheric music, music that takes you on a inner journey. Instrumental music for example.
Using headphone can sometimes be a good way to block outside sounds.

Meditation can be helpfull.
Meditation can be a way to center yourself and to find inner peace and calmness.

here is a bummer I had simmarized. This happened about 1979/80. me and a friend had gone to a park and picked fresh liberty caps, and we eat them raw too.

The setting was a room. We covered fictures and furnishings because we painting on little canvases with oils

He told me he had brought some music, but one of the albums he said he would not tell me what it was and surprise me. The first we listened to as trip came up was the great Dr John's Night Tripper. I was familiar with it for years and love it

Now here is an interesting point. Prior to our trip my ffriend, who was an alcoholic, was kind of making alight of tripping, and at that time I was reading about eg 'if you supset the spirits of the mushrooms they can kill you', and I freaked out and told him that

Anywaym back to the trip. So, we were beginning painting, and I felt that there was no sense of division between me painting and the painting. I was painting the paimting was painting me...if you get me

Now, this is where my mate, Paul, put on the LP which he said was surprise. it was Oxygene which as you make know is this trippy electronic music--very new then. So this music just blew my mind and I begin closing my eyes, and I am flying through the deepest darkest space, and through these enormous coils which have underworld right-colours that are alive, and shifting and as I fly by playing hide and seek behind these coils are these little beings, wearing old-fashioned colthes which are very rich and bright

I sense they are mischievous and are guiding my trip. If say I half open my eyes I can see I am in the room again, but when I shut them I am back in that vision. Now, the whole vibe of the LP on the turntable from the first---both LPs were crackly, was this sense of timelessness, the going round and round and the crackles sounded ancient, and as the track changes it changes into a VERY eerie music which involves what soundls like birds singing bacwards. My vision now changes and I am flying slowly and timelessly into a whirlpool that is made entirely of emaciated-looking bodies like you would see in a Nazi concentration camp, but with eyes open and staring. I am being sucked into this horror in a timeless way, and I totally freaked out. As I was going in, I was sensing cold flesh, and parts of my body were aching and I freaked the fuck out!!!!
When I opening my eyes I raced over to the record player and turned the volume down, and my friend was like 'WTF' and I just replied 'It is too sad'. I then got up to go to the front door to try and calm myself down, and I remember zillions of particles flying from the walls etc. I got to the door and opened it, and we had a tree by the gate and I looked at the blue sky in between branches to cool me down

I should also say that this period this happened in was terrible. my life was very fucked up and I was working this terrible job in a factory sweat shop. So I had a lot of sadness in me.

I regretted for years not going with the vision into the whirlpool of death. That can be the trouble with so-called recreational tripping. When stuff like that happens there is no support

Thanks all. Can I ask all of you what kinds of drugs you prefer and how often you use them? Does tripping too often lead to bad trips?

Abeja: So if I understand you right you mostly have entheogen sessions on your own, and prepare for them with ritual actions including prayer and mantra? And this is something you learnt on this forum after you started doing entheogenic drugs?

Sludge: What you are saying sounds very reasonable, but it mostly deals with getting the right setting. How do you get yourself in the mood for a trip? (Or does it just happen automatically?) And do you always trip in the company of other people?

Finarfin: Where did you pick up the mantra and meditation practice? Do you use it only for tripping or in your daily life too? And can you give an example of what you might be hoping to get out of a trip?

zezt: Pretty intense. Did the experience bother you afterwards (except for the regret)? And did you move on to some other form of tripping (non-recreational) at a later time?
