Increased emotional potential with psychedelics?
    #2013529 - 10/16/03 03:09 AM (13 years, 15 days ago)

Has anyone noted increased 'flavors' of emotion, i.e. more specific types, while experimenting with psychedelics, or perhaps while in very, very, deep trances or states of meditation? Another way to relate the concept would be perhaps increased definition of emotions, sort of like increasing resolution on a monitor, or increasing the color-depth.

For example, I recall being in states of intrigue or amusement that were far more specific than I could ever expect in a mundane state. Again, another way of relating this, would be if emotions were normally described broadly on the spectrum of all visible light, but while in advanced states of mind, the type of emotion could be focused on a very specific wavelength, causing a crisper emotion to be experienced... yes, this feels like the best way to relate it, with colors.

Anyone? (:

Brainfarts have many more levels since I started shrooming, and colours come in more shades too. Emotions do come in more specific subcategories too.

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

I definitely agree. I myself like it when I am "bemused". :grin:

The more you focus on what is going on in your life now, the more you realize what is going on in your life, the more you tune into your thoughts, feelings, emotions.. etc. etc..

If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you
