I Lost My Enlightometer!!!
    #1800294 - 08/11/03 02:19 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I am sooooooo fucked!

I had it yesterday when I was driving around town. But that's the last time I remember having it.
What if I meet new people? How will I know if they really are enlightened?! They might NOT be! Maybe an unenlightened sumbitch stole it! They're plotting some evil, unenlightened scheme to destroy the rest of us!

Oh.... my.... gawd.... I just thought.... um... what if my losing track of my Enlightometer is actually a sign that I am no longer enlightened?!
ohshitohshitohshitohshitohshitohshitohshitohshit...

okay...

take a few deep breaths...

this has happened to me quite a few times (damned stoner memory, *grumble grumble*).

i know exactly what to do!

making a new enlightometer is quite easy, and actually a lot of fun! :smile:

first, you have to find yourself a sock.  preferably an old, dirty one.  next, fill the sock with toilet paper. 

now, attach the sock (which is now filled with toilet paper) to the front of your belt with a piece of string.

WARNING:  this step may require the use of scissors.  please use extreme caution and obtain parental supervision if needed.

once the sock is safely attached to the front of your belt, it should hang down in front of your crotch if attached correctly.  all you have to do is wear this when you're meeting new people, and if they're enlightened, they will surely give you a little wink. 

i have tried this enlightometer out myself, and it's fool-proof.  only those who are enlightened will give the wink!

hope this helped! :wink:

No, Maia, that is the old model... it fails to detect anyone over The 5th center of consciousness, and anyone wearing a pacemaker will be detected as "Mystic Shaman Guru", as the pacemaker puts out a lot of theta waves..

I'd recommend the new model, which runs Windows XP, myself. It also will detect people's aura colours, and if none exists, you can colour one in for them in Paintbrush. It also comes equipped with a bottle opener, free of charge. Average retail: $750.50, although, if you wear a t-shirt that says the phrase "Alien Refugee" into the Wal-Mart you purchase it in, they will give you a 50 cent discount and a free questioning by a local NSA agent...

Definitely on my christmas list. By the way, the casing is now black on the new model, instead of the somewhat dated, less fashionable white colouring. They will be coming out with a pink coloured "Girl" model, too, I am told.
Peace.

P.S. When you make a purchase of the new model, please mention my name as one who informed you about it, and I will get 50 Spirit points in my Enlight account... 2000 getting you a free picture of Ram Dass.. i can't wait!

It would be funny to go in as a fake "master" and see what readings you get from The Magnetic Resonance Tester.

Its just a type of bird. Here is some info on spotting one.

Length: 9 inches
Stocky, short-legged, pointed-winged shorebird
Explosive takeoff when flushed, rapid zigzag flight
Very long, straight bill
Legs olive
Head patterned with alternating dark and pale stripes
Pale breast with darker spots and bars
Strongly patterned back with several buffy, longitudinal stripes
Rusty brown rump and tail visible in flight
White belly, dark bars on flanks
Upperwings dark, secondaries with white tips
Found primarily in marshes and wet fields
Sexes similar
Juvenile similar to adult


There is also a very interesting way of hunting them.... I cant quite remember but im sure another Shroomery member can!

Come with me, I'll take you snipe hunting. It's quite an experience, I'm suprised you've never been before.

>Do you eat them?

Nah... they don't taste very good.  :grin:

You get a bunch of people that have never been snipe hunting to take their pillowcases out into the woods at night.  They stay real quiet and open up the cases on the ground so that they can catch the snipes as the run into the bag.  The people that have experience in snipe hunting will go out and flush the snipes from their hiding places towards the folks with the pillow cases.  Lots of fun!

I found it. I just followed the shining light that was acting as a beacon...
Some Mexican kid was holding onto it. Before I reached him, he merged into the One and disappeared, taking the Enlightometer with him.

Sorry Sclorch, maybe next time..
Peace.

I'm pretty sure Sclorch is reffering to the mass commercialization of "enlightenment", mostly during the sixties and seventies...

I agree with Sclorch. I don't think "enlightenment" is a boolean personnal characteristic. The word is over-used, and its meaning is vague. When people use the word "enlightened", they assume that we all know what they're talking about... which is not good, because in fact, the definition varies from one individual to another.

What is to be enlightnened? Is it a state that is superior to a non-enlightened one? If we can't even give it a precise definition, why bother using it to label others?

Enlightenment can mean a lot of things, like being knowledgeable and wise etc. But in a spirituality forum on a website dedicated to magic mushrooms, I think it usually is assumed to mean the extraordinary state of consciousness where you directly experience "self" and "I" as nothing more than temporary mental constructs.

I think this word enlightenment is useful even though it just points to a very subjective experience. People who are preoccupied with labeling other people as enlightened vs. non-enlightened are likely to miss the point completely. Their time would be better spent testing different procedures for reaching enlightenment, and reporting back about it.
