Three friends and myself were bemushroomed at an Allman Brothers Band concert at the Beacon Theatre last friday. We soaked the shrooms in honey and ate them about 45 minutes before the show. We then walked the twenty blocks from my friend's apartment to the show, feeling the effects come on as we strolled down Broadway.
It originally felt more like drunkenness than anything else. Soon, everthing became very quiet,despite the traffic and what not around me. Streetlights took on a special intensity. We got to the theatre, and I used the bathroom before the show. I saw some very immpressive colorful moving swirly things on the wall behind the urinal.
The Beacon Theatre is a wonderful old place, with baroque murals and gilded sculptures all around, which all began pulsing and swirling.
We got to our seats, and the show soon began. The first song was very bluesy, and I was beginning to feel kind of scared. They soon went into some happy stuff though, and I began dancing. I danced with my eyes closed and began seeing all sorts of geometric patterns and light shows which I can't really remember now.
What happened next was that I kind of forgot about the show. My senses began melding together. I no longer "heard" and "saw" and "felt". All that was happening around me became a continuous stream of information flowing into and around my mind.
But my mind was not what it normally was. I shed all the experiences of my life, so that the "me" that was experiencing the show was not my present me but the me at the time of my birth. It was my primal soul taking in an Allman Brothers concert.
It is now 6 days after the show, and I am still very much glowing from the experience.
