Your favorite psychedelic quotes * 1
    #6829394 - 04/24/07 11:11 PM (7 years, 7 months ago)

I have a thing for psychedelic quotes and philosophies. These are just a few I've gotten from various places, a lot from people on this forum.

“To get really high is to forget yourself. And to forget yourself is to see everything else. And to see everything else is to become an understanding molecule in evolution, a conscious tool of the universe” - Jerry Garcia

"Fish don't know they're under water..." -Unknown

“I am 100 percent in favor of the intelligent use of drugs, and 1,000 percent against the thoughtless use of them, whether caffeine or LSD. And drugs are not central to my life.” - Timothy Leary

Shrooms are awesome for getting back in touch with your root.
LSD is for reaching out with your branches.

The way I see it: psychadelic drugs are not a vacation from reality, they are a vacation to reality.

The chance of me going insane off mushrooms always seemed less likely than going insane without them.

All I know is that I'd rather take a pile of physically harmless mushrooms every couple of months to bring me back to nature and the universe, than to chug a large cup of coffee every morning just to have the energy and will to go to school/work.

"I think that in human evolution it has never been as necessary to have this substance LSD," said Hofmann. "It is just a tool to turn us into what we are supposed to be."

"I tried making sense of it, and then I realized I should be trying to make sense as to why I was even trying to make sense... "

A thumprint doesn't open the door of perception it blows it off the hinges.

I think of it this way: Sobriety is a six sided cube. Each angle representing one facet of life, society, the tangible world, your thoughts, etc. On mushrooms, you feel like you are interpreting about 20,000 angles at once... The fun part is that you can keep up.

Psychedelics are probably responsible for every aspect of human evolution apart from the decline in bodyhair.

The sky looks big today.
-Me, about 6 years ago-

I had just gotten out of class and some friends of mine and I were walking to our cars, and I suddenly realized the lack of clouds, and the sudden change from being indoors all day to being in a huge parking lot. I was feeling the tail-end of a 30-something hour sleepless AMT trip. Those were the days...

Long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be.

"A pizza is our connection to reality" Said to me while tripping in a hotel room.

Made perfect sense at the time and it works for me today as well.  :pizza:

Progress of human civilization in the area of defining human freedom is not made from the top down. No king, no parliment, no government ever extended to the people more rights than the people insisted upon. And I think we've come to a place with this psycedelic issue. And we have the gay community as a model, and all the other communities, the ethnic communities. We simply have to say, Look: LSD has been around for fifty years now, we just celebrated the birthday. It ain't going away. WE are not going away. We are not slack-jawed, dazed, glazed, unemployable psychotic creeps. We are pillars of society. You can't run your computers, your fashion houses, your publishing houses, your damn magazines, you can do anything in culture without psycedelic people in key positions. And this is the great unspoken of American Creativity. So I think it's basicly time to just come out of the closet and go, 'You know what, I'm stoned, and I'm proud.'


--------------------
Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.
-Erik Davis

I'm not sure it's drug related(it probably isn't), but I've always liked the quote in my signature.

yeah probably the second quote in my sig aswell


--------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Until the 20th century, reality was everything humans could touch, smell, see,
and hear.
Since the initial publication of the charged electromagnetic spectrum, humans
learned that what they can touch, smell, see, and hear... is less than one
millionth of reality.

I totally fucking feel that

my favourite psychedelic quote:

"I'm just gonna go over... here.... now"

That was my friend when we were on some da vinci acid at the beach. He had this real sort of shifty eyed look on his face, said that then took 2 steps to the left. We asked him why the hell he did it and he said "ijust felt real uneasy standing in that spot"


plus, about the pizza connecting you to reality, I know what you mean. I did the same with a blanket once, and a door handle. Like trying to hold onto reality, but I should have just let go.

"The answer is...no...."

The first time I tried LSD, it came to me as the meaning of life, and the key to everything. I still havent figured out what the hell it means, but it was very profound at that moment...Good times.

"To fathom hell or soar angelic, Just take a pinch of psychedelic"
-Dr Humphry Osmond 


"I don't do drugs, I am drugs"
- Salvador Dali


"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."
-  Bill Hicks


"Once you can accept the universe as matter expanding into nothing that is something, wearing stripes with plaid comes easy." :grin:
-Albert Einstein 

"There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly
what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly
disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and
inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has
already happened."
- Douglas Adams


This next one applies to the last quote.

While on some strong Barbie (as in Barbie doll) acid my friend turned to me and said

"I just saw the universe age"
-Friend

Only those who risk going too far, can possibly realize how far they can go.

On storing pedro tea...

Brewmaster: Well, the mescaline will still be in there, but I'd be afraid of it conjealing and trying to escape after it grew in size from eating all the other shit in my fridge, and possibly my dogs if it got out.

Pithlit: sentient drugs, now thats is an idea ...

OneMoreRobot: Idea? It's a fuckin' reality. You know Salvia? Nigga stole my TV.
