Psilocybin Social Studies: What would happen if you...

A sharing of the mushroom experience, for one, I'd think, which would be great. I like the idea of the get togethers in a general sense, but haven't really pursued partaking myself since I'd feel uncomfortable about getting together with a bunch of relative strangers for the experience. Meeting others on a one to one basis would actually be really cool, I think.

To begin with, I would block the exits and give guitars to Shroomism and fireworks_god, and marijuana to everyone :laugh:

Then after a while I expect people would drift off and form subgroups where they would eat mushrooms and forget about everyone, including themselves.

Then, when everyone has returned back again and/or received their shot of Thorazine, I think we could have some interesting philosophical discussions, just like here, but with faster turnaround :wink:

We'd have two groups:

1)Suffering and human anguish.

2)The most beautiful ecstasy (sans the drug) and really awesome conversations that delve into philosophical and spiritual topics.

The two sides of psilocybin.

Wouldn't that be ironic for the shroomery?  :lol: 

And wait, there would probably be a gangbang in there too.

Hell motherfucker yeah. We could do harmony bass lines (like the last bass solo in Orion, off of Master of Puppets). You know, Meshuggah tried doing an all-bass guitar album, but it didn't really work... so the guitarists got eight string guitars and fired the bassist. hehe
Could you imagine if everyone on here actually got together and hung out? Debated ideas in real life?
It'd be quite different.. I susposse we'd have to make sure no one beat the hell out of each other. And we'd end up forming two main groups, basically, the skeptics and the believers. We'd stand on opposite sides, and not let any of our children play with the children of people on the other side... One day, one would fall in love with each other, reenacting this cliche tale of fobidden romance, and we'd all have swordfights.. do you see where this idea would lead? hehe
It'd be great though, just like getting together with close friends, putting a movie on, smoking some dope, maybe kicking some sack,  playing guitar and conversing about whatever. Pretty sweet. (hell, when Skooma and Skultamaphon (sp?) tour together, any member of the Shroomery gets a free backstage pass... as long as they have some good green bud, that is.
Peace.
Peace.

Being together in ONE place - geographically - isn't gonna result in us becoming of ONE mind. First of all, do you want to :
I. Become a 'hive mind,' like the Borg on Star Trek?
II. Become absorbed in the ONE [True God] in which
A. We lose all individuality, or
B. We maintain an infinitely simplified individuality but interact only
with the ONE, in either case horizontal (social) interactions
cease to exist.
III. Recognize diversity-in-unity, sort of like the concept behind
Trinitarian Christian theology. And further recognize that everyone's
moment-to-moment needs (different chakras 'firing') do not occur in
the same order, like we are all machines.

I want to make it like our Congress....
We all can get fat paychecks, and vote on things. The thing is, though, that the things we vote on won't have any effect at all on anything, so it is better that way. We can all have our own hidden interests, and we can hire hookers at night...
Think about it. It'd be fun that way. hehe
Peace.

Actually, what we could do, is this: We all have our consciousness leave our bodies, and we all float into, say, a Siberian Husky. We all fight over who will control the dog, and then we try to do whatever missions we actually could do with a dog. It'd be great, because we would all fight over who had control, and it would end up walking around in circles and twitching. People would think it would be sick, so when they come to get the dog, we'll know all the good places to run and hide. We'd be an American myth, the Crazy Dog who could never be caught. Think about it...hehe
Peace.

5. Syd Barrett goes insane and remains "impaired" to the present day if I'm not mistaken.
6. The Beatles go to India. They get kindof religious in a rock 'n' roll / psychedelic way. George Harrison ends up despising his roll in the Beatles and becomes a solo artist who produced many religious songs and one song meant as a direct jab at Lennon, "It's Johnnie's Birthday."





Syd Barrett is still in his home, in Cambridge, England. It is funny, though, on how everyone thought he went insane.
I mean, he was on American Bandstand, and decided he didn't want to lip synch, so he just threw his guitar down and stood there.
On the Pat Boone Show, he just sat there with a glassy-stare kind of look, and didn't respond to any of Pat's questions.
To me, I think he didn't really like the role that he had to fill out, the whole music business thing. I would not like to lip synch, or be on Pat Boone's fucking talk show...
I mean, I'm sure that he crossed a few mental boundries, but that was up to him. You have to remember, the whole "going insane" thing would have been a label given by the typical Americans.. maybe he found his mind, instead of losing it, and decided not to be a public spectacle? He's the '60's version of Kurt Cobain, albeit with no BITCH of a girlfriend, and with LSD instead of heroin... oh, and Pink Floyd was better than Nirvana (actually, i've only heard a bit of one song with Syd Barrett on it.. he was technically only on one album)
He provided George Waters with a LOT of lyrical substance, too.... all of Dark Side of a Moon was written about his decent into "madness", and Wish You Were Here was mostly about him, too (The Wall, being mostly autobiographal, was Waters portraying Barrett's downfall as becoming his own...)

You forgot to mention Jimi Hendrix man, how his manager was an ex CIA-operative, all the inside connections with the Mob, and how he was eventually murdered... Jimi never deserved what he ended up gettting. The biggest bullshit of them all...
Peace.

you're afraid you'd find me just too irresistable, eh?  i don't blame you.
:devil:

as you said, pretty much the same thing thing as here, you in your little box and me in my little box... shouting out of our little boxes back and forth at each other..... yup.... wouldn't be surprised.


--------------------
Everything is better than it was the last time.  I'm good.

If we could look into each others hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.

It takes a lot of courage to go out there and radiate your essence.

I know you scared, you should ask us if we scared too.  If you was there, and we just knew you cared too.

i hope you find a community which you come to trust, feel comfortable within, and care for..... just because.
you don't take psychedelics to bypass "natural social discomforts" and intensify relations. this is why people go to clubs and take drugs like mdma.
i wouldn't take psychedelics with people that i haven't formed real human heart-felt bonds with.
