Salvia Divinorum: Key to the Multiverse? One of the most commonly occurring phenomena that I experience while in Salvia Space, is variations on multiple images of reality, of the room I am meditating in.

Salvia Divinorum: Key to the Multiverse?

(I have become able to experience eyes-open visions that interact with actual reality after a lot of practice resisting the very powerful "pull" of the drug as it is taking effect.) I've seen multiple images of the room "displayed" as a giant rolling "rolodex" of images. Imagine a very thick book, each page showing a view of the room as seen from my eyes, with the ends (first and last pages) bent around to touch each other, forming a wheel of multiple views, turning slowly on it's horizontal axis or "spine. " This I have perceived as both external and internal, with me looking at it passively, and also at another point involved in the vision as a part of the wheel, or rather, a "floating viewpoint" that proceeds around the circumference of the wheel, able to view a segment of it at a time as I proceed around it. Consciousness Freedom and the Right to Get High.

Why do we, as children, want to spin in circles until we’re so dizzy we puke? Or push on our eyelids until we see colors and images? Or choke ourselves until we lose consciousness? Or take extra huffs off of our inhaler, or extra doses of medications? This is not the result of peer pressure, or outside influences, but virtually all children do at least some of these things. And why? It’s because we all want to get high. The people who stick to the socially approved substances do so because they are the successful products of social conditioning.

Why do people think it’s wrong to get high? But that’s because psych meds are intended to get you back to normal, back to the normal waking state of consciousness, because all others are prohibited, and it naturally follows that any chemicals which take you outside that state are likewise prohibited. “There can be no more intimate and elemental part of the individual than his or her own consciousness. This is a very real possibility. Videos. Can LSD cure depression? Cacti Vaults : San Pedro Preparation. Years ago in the early 1970s I became friends with the employees of a plant shop in the Seattle University District.

Cacti Vaults : San Pedro Preparation

What was really cool is that I found out that the owner of this plant shop was also the author, as well as the editor of several fine books such as "How to Grow the Finest Marijuana Indoors under Halides" and "How to Grow Pot Hydroponically". They also published "How to Identify and Grow Psilocybe Mushrooms," by Jule Stevens and Rich Gee. One of the employees and I went to the Seattle Arboretum in 1975 and were playing Frisbee when I dropped the Frisbee to the ground at the Woodlawn Park section of the Seattle Arboretum. As I bent down to pick up the Frisbee I noticed some interesting mushrooms in the field in which we were playing.

I then lifted one shroom out of the ground and realized it was Psilocybe semilanceata. My friends at the plant shop told me I would have to slice and cook the cactus for about four hours or so and then drink the remaining liquid. Erowid. Ethnobotany Vaults : Medicinal Use.
