Many people like to focus on items such as religion, existentialism, spiritualism, other dimensions and things like that.
Seeing as I'm purposefully in a mind state that IN MY OPINION isn't the best vehicle for clear headed thinking, I usually avoid all that and save it for another time. I find it irrelevant. Especially religion; who cares? My trips usually end up centering around my ego (whether I'm attached to it or not), the interactions between people/animals/planets/chemicals, other people, why we do what we do, why aspects of a personality exist, what people are getting across with art, why cultures inhabit certain structures and values, etc...... I wonder why those other things don't seem appropriate a majority of the time and there's no real answer. I keep an open mind but either they haven't come into focus yet or never really will be in the foreground.
I'm not saying that the things I trip on are unique, they only seem to be less focused on in general from the trip reports I've read (hundreds) and the stuff I don't focus on seem to be much more common and clear for them.
BTW I just put boring in the topic title for fun. The subjects can be boring if you don't want to think about them at the time, but they have their own to offer.

Why did you post it, then?
no i meant your post. i don't view psychedelic experiences with any more significance than any other experience.i take them for what they are. sometimes they are spiritual and insightful, sometimes they are unnerving and intense, sometimes they are lighthearted and fun. the pitfall is to give them way more significance than is needed and become attached. talking about them can be boring or riveting depending on who is telling.

I understand what you mean. I don't really question religion more then I question existence. You can know everything in the world but you will never know why you know everything. Very intellectual people tend to think of suicide more then others.

Really depends on how well written the trip report is, sometimes I just shake my head when I read trip reports but other times I'm enthralled. Granted, I usually have the reaction of being enthralled when I myself am fiending for a trip.
My trip reports are generally pretty lame. When I'm tripping I usually either marvel breathlessly at the great earth-mother or lie in place and introspect. That includes most of the supposedly awesome intellectual meandering you described.
Your trips sound pretty fucking boring though, OP. Have you ever smelled the fresh air of hyperspace? It's pretty difficult not to give existential consideration to the rupturing of your consciousness. Next time you trip, take a heroic dose and then maybe you'll understand.
