Haha! We do indeed look like regular beasts, do we not? All wrinkly and oily with shiny claws and dorky teeth. Or maybe that's just me. I love it, though. I feel much more aware of the animal-ness of myself when I'm tripping and surveying my body parts closely. It's cool  :dancer:




yeah! thats right! however I usually feel like I'M the only one looking like that, as opposed to we as a race, but that's just some issue I need to solve I guess.

Jah, if you step back and take a look at the naked ape it often ain't a pretty sight. Especially after the 20s. Especially now with the first world becoming obese. Some young girls and men can be especially beautiful but for the most part we are one of the ugliest animals on earth IMO. Looks like some science fiction dork monster.




Christina Aguilera would respectfully deny that....

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY!

It's always encouraging to hear that educated people and adults are exploring the mind. After all, working with philosophy it seems almost necessary to try all the psychedelics at least once.

Something I also am keen on pointing out is your viewpoint, which, as you say is a professional philosopher's viewpoint and your mushroom trip mirrored that quite well. Our fantasies always become stronger and reveal precisely the irregular characters we are (our characters are essentially a conglomeration of mental and habitual abormalities).

Quote:

Likewise, though we can know what causes a magic mushroom experience – magic mushrooms plus physiology – we cannot thereby know what the experience is of, and more importantly we cannot thereby know whether that experience is of something that has an ontological status beyond my physical self. In sum, the question is open as to whether magic mushrooms make you only hallucinate or whether they allow your mind to access realities which are normally prohibited by the practical modus operandi of the brain and body.




After hundreds of psychedelic experiences, a decade spent at the university and study of philosophy, linguistics, languages, neurobiology, neuropsychology, psychology and semantics I think it's a bit of both. Much less than many trippers want to admit, more than most academics would want to know.

Quote:

...profound at the time, but now seems a little shallow.




It can also just be this, that you were stoned and it felt good. Shallow and deep are irrelevant.


"Scientist fiction dork monster" and all the other stuff about humans = similar insights over here.

:shrug: I think we're fantastic animals. But I'm pretty sure that's what most animals think about themselves. I don't think it really matters about being ugly or beautiful, because that's all subjective. But seeing everything and everyone for it's own unique pure beauty of existance is pretty neat... you should check it out, dude.

I'll be laughing with everyone I see.
Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all.
