I agree.

Here's a question, sort of unrelated, to anyone......do you think it's necessarily good for the pupils to become SO big(like...they fill up a good portion of my eye...which isn't normal. Would tripping a fair amount, be not good for the pupils?)...lol stupid question...but gotta know

I would have to say that I should avoid mirrors while tripping. I think most people can handle it, but I know exactly what that guys friend went through. I'd been told mirrors were really cool while tripping too, so last time I gave it a try. I got stuck in front of the mirror for an hour. It was not fun. My face looked all morbid and grotesque, and when I stared into my eyes, I started thinking about life. It was as if I saw every aspect of my life from a different point of view. I went over everything that had ever happened to me that had an effect on my life. Then it was if I started to see what it was going to be like in the future. But neither of these psuedo-visions were happy ones. My life seemed horrible. Every part of it just seemed wrong and didn't make sense. The the future seemed to be even worse. Everything was going downhill, fast. I saw myself as a total failure. Someone who couldn't do anything but screw up. I finally managed to break myself away from the mirror. At that point I just tried to go to sleep. But then I got thinking that my blanket was a spider and it was trying to eat me. Yeah, it was pretty much all downhill from there... I guess I just wasn't in a proper mental state to be doing shrooms. I've been really depressed lately. And that didn't help much. I still enjoyed the trip though. Nothing could possibly happen to make me not enjoy it.

maybe you thought that thing about the spider because the blanket maybe made you feel like you were caught in a web?

dunno , but yeah the dialiation of pupils isnt a bad thing, it only lets more light into the inner - eye, which can be a bad thing if near a bright ass light.

If your staring at anything and it doesnt make you squint, your probably ok... unless its an eclipse.

When I was younger I had a poor self image. I tripped a couple and the mirror was a terrible experience. Today I've grown up and learned to love myself. When I trip now, the mirror is awsome.

Well it seems to me that your consciousness treated the mirror as the blank canvas; with which it would paint a view of your present condition. The future condition was possibly your rationalising mind reaching a logical conclusion to the situation as it saw it if your thoughts/actions were to continue on the same path.

Psychedelics as tools, and props to induce certain states of mind...who'd have thought :smile:

For the record I like mirrors but I always feel I'm being really naughty by staring into one. I stare at this familliar yet alien child like personality who is of course staring back at me. The mirror world always seems to be of more substance than the world I inhabit when I watch. I know I can never really know what it is like, and the person staring back at me knows this too. It's written all over his smug face!  :crazy:

I enjoy looking into mirrors while tripping as well. It's cool to look at your face all distorting and shit. I've also got some of that sense of animalism mentioned in an earlier thread. I particularly enjoy staring into my eyes. This one time I was looking into a mirror (one of those kinds with lights all around it in a square configuration), and my pupils reflected the light from the bulbs in such an awesome way. It was great.

well was there any truth behind what your mind was telling you?

DO YOU need to fix things in your life? If so, and this experience pointed out faults you'd never noticed, then what's so bad about it?

If it was all lies, lies, and dirty lies, then yeah; stay away from the mirror.

Think about it though, man.... sometime truth can be horrifying

I've had a bad experience looking in the mirror while tripping. I found myself staring into my eyes and I couldn't move. Then looking deep into my eyes there was a sudden "pull back dolly shot" and I saw my entire image standing there as a different person. Then my image made a move at me (the kind of move you make when you want someone to flinch). Well, I flinched. It scared me bad.

Whenever I look into the mirror on psychedelics I see myself all tripped-out, just as my friends look :smile:

I smile, think "hehe check THAT guy out - he must be all whacked-out on mushrooms!" wink at myself, and exit the restroom.

Don' look into the mirrior. - That's the most obvious metaphor for "self-denial" that I've ever seen.

I agree!

I like mirrors while tripping too. I like making funny faces in them while straight, though, so there's that. I was tripping acid for the first time and went and looked in a mirror and couldn't keep a straight face, it was just so ironically funny.

So, yeah, I say only look in mirrors if you've got a good self-esteem and you like looking at your face.

I always get all fascinated at the fact that I can't look into both of my eyes in the mirror.

I'm left-handed, and I've noticed that when I look in the mirror, I look at my left eye. Do you right-handers "default" to the right-eye?

The mirror is not necessarily a "bad" thing. Anytime I have ever had a negative tripping experience it has been related to some negativity in my self-image. If you can't look in a mirror while tripping...your unconscious mind is most likely unhappy with something about your character........or your activities in the recent past. The mirror reflects what you really believe about yourself....as always,

pack carefully because your baggage has a major effect on your trip.

Once when I looked into the mirror tripping by myself I stared at myself so long that I put my point of view into the place of mirror me. THAT IS FUCKING TRYPT.

The last time I looked into the mirror tripping I was on ayahuaska. After being in the dark for most of my peak I turned on the lights, stood there and tripped for a minute, then went to the mirror in the bathroom. It was hard to get ahold of what I was looking at even though I knew it was me. It wasnt too hard to pull myself away though. I think one of these days I'm going to do ayahuaska alone infront of a mirror the whole trip, may help with introspection. Although usually it seems I am just like a deer in the headlights, it's hard to think because you're so astonished.
