Sleep and Altered States of Consciousness
Get flash to fully experience Pearltrees
One of my favorite things about Psychedelics is examining & attempting to define the mysterious fractal boundaries between unfamiliar zones of sensory intensification, and actual 'hallucinations' As some may remember from 'back in the old days' there is a certain mid-range dosage level where there is just increased perception , with very novel effects to the experimenter - but no hallucinations or non existent scenes or objects ........ At first I was disappointed(!) that i didn't see the kind of 'hallucinations' i had heard about ... fantastical bizarre things, then i realized others were describing a very complex process in a simplified way, or lacking in words & neurological concepts to describe their experience.
Taking Mushrooms, LSD, Peyote or DMT is not something I would recommend to most people ... without first having a a thorough discussion of any previous or current mental illness , incl.
There is no way to represent what one sees, but the images on this post are trip-art that i had previously saved, & I carefully chose the ones which most closely resemble a faint suggestion of what i 'saw' in the lux of the mind's eye.
