Mushrooms are spiritual, duh... (Question in here!)
    #1341525 - 02/27/03 09:34 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Whenever I am dealing with mushrooms, ie: checking how the mycelium is doing in the jars,etc... --  I get high.

Not 'high', but fucking HIGH!

Like, mushroom high.  Like I'm breathing liquid.  :smile:

I love mushrooms.

wait, I forgot the question...

How about this: Does anyone feel they get a certain 'understanding^2' feeling from mushrooms?
The understanding of everything, on every level, but with the unfortunate effect of not being able to express these revelations using your current linguistic skills?

YES.
I'd say more, but I still find it very difficult to put into words what 7 grams of mushrooms assisted me in experiencing.

Is it all you want it to be?

We are mushrooms partially oblivious to our mycelium connection.

Yep from the very first time I tripped I got that exact feeling Killjoy. Theres something about the experience that all linguistic skills (well all forms of description really) are totally inadequate to convey.

Silent knowledge isn't meant to be spoken with words, that's why sometimes you can never find just the right words to explain the experience!  :wink:

"at last you know what ecstasy is, and what ineffable means"
(i think that was albert hoffman, describing his first psilocybin trip; or it could have been r g wasson, y'know...) (...i mean, my old synapses here are in need of, umm, a tune up or something...)
~
some languages & some traditions have a broad vocabulary available to describe nuances of interior psychological states (whether induced by "drugs", or meditational exercises, or other means...) while, it appears, most european languages do not...
if you have access to a sufi shayk, you might be able to get a guided tour of some of the possible states of mind available to a seeker...
inshallah...

No doubt to all of this.
The character in my movie plot has mushrooms growing and Syrian Rue coming in the mail, and he hasn't had any for quite a few months. The suspense in my movie is building up and the character is about to go insane without some mushrooms. I mean, I myself can't take this suspense and patience. hehe

Classic Hinduism suggests four possibilities for tripping:
-Increased personal power, intellectual understanding, sharpened insight into self and culture, improvement of life situation, accelerated learning, professional growth.
-Duty, help of others, providing care, rehabilitation, rebirth for fellow men.
-Fun, sensuous enjoyment, esthetic pleasure, interpersonal closeness, pure experience.
-Trancendence, liberation from ego and space-time limits; attainment of mystical union.
