The Mushroom Syndrome
    #2166002 - 12/07/03 08:59 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

When one does mushrooms, all sorts of amazing connections and congruencies begin to appear. While on a trip, events all seem linked somehow, coincidences are of mammoth proportions. You look down at the ground, and that once boring concrete is now swimming with an inter-connected pattern.

Thusly, mushrooms make the user feel that everything in life is connected. The agent for this ipifiny is of course - mushrooms.

It seems to me that after a person has used mushrooms for an extended period of time, this inter-connectedness begins to manifest itself in everything the person does. Somehow -- everything is related to mushrooms. Evolution...must have been caused by mushrooms, Tolkien...must have been using mushrooms! woh, my trip to Hong Kong was just like a mushroom trip!

and so forth.

You seem delusional to me, my friend. Take a deep breath, chill out. :grin:

har har har. Seriously though, I find weed also promotes this type of behaviour (to a much lesser extent), as does religion.

Look, some sort of face has formed as a stain on my fridge, it must be Jesus!


celebrate! JESUS! celebrate!

An artist looks at the world through the eyes of an artist, a child looks at the world through the eyes of a child, a paranoid religious fanatic sees the world from soley his position as well.....

It all depends on what is behind the eyes. I try to let my eyes pull in the outside world as it really is. :grin:

exactly my point, and for some psychedelic users, the drug (re: experience) is their faith.

Everybody wants a universal theory. Well, I dont really care for one, but many do.

----I try to let my eyes pull in the outside world as it really is.

keep trying.

so you dont hold any opinions on reality then? if you see a child being beaten, you just "see" it, you dont apply any subjective morals towards the image in front of you?

there aren't any major connections, just major restructering. Some use mushrooms as a reminder, of what, who knows, it's a reminder to them. For their reasons only, just like I got mine.

you just described a situation based on nothing. maybe that's how you and others use mushrooms, but that description doesn't even come close to why I use them. This can probably be said for everyone else as well, as we all have our reasons to do this drug.

just don't let others tell YOU what YOU get out of it. I have fun on them and I am happy when I do them. it's a pleasure to experience for me.

yeah sure, same for me, please elaborate on this "situation based on nothing" and how your use of the drug differs. I usually use mushrooms as sort of...mental cleansing, something that dumps all the built up junk in my brain out into the atmosphere. That and, to have fun of course.

You misunderstand. I didn't say anything about the opinions on reality that I hold. What I said is that the input comes in and is not judged when it comes in. It is seen as it is. I always recognize it as plainy "what it is" before I then put my imprint on the input.

Sort of hard to describe. I guess it would just be thinking about it before instantly judging or reacting. A lot of people seem to have a problem with this.
Peace.

true, many people do filter things as they come in, but i dont see how this is drastically different when you are going to judge the external with your own beliefs anyways.

It just seems like your trying to infer that you have achieved a higher state of consciousness than the average humanoid.

There is a difference. It is all about making a duplicate and storing them in seperate file cabinents. They balance each other out, the record of the actual inputs and then a copy that has had my implied meaning encapsulated into it.

The average humaniod? What the hell is that? How can anyone else understand what someone else is aware of? Could you make a list of all the different things that you are conscious of? I'd like to think that I am rather tuned in and aware. If I was walking down the street, I don't think you would be able to tell. :grin:
Peace.

"While on a trip, events all seem linked somehow, coincidences are of mammoth proportions. You look down at the ground, and that once boring concrete is now swimming with an inter-connected pattern."

this is a situation. based on nothing because you provide no evidence on how that's the way I feel while shrooming.

see you said mental cleansing. well what's that like to you? might be different to me, you think? different for everyone. what's "fun" for you is more than likely similar but not the same as having fun for me. it's all relative is what I'm saying and you were making a statement as if that's what people on mushrooms experience. I'm like, how do you "know" this?

what does this have to do with the topic???

of course the scenario I described is based on my experience. It just seems to me that some people who use mushrooms get a tad obsessed with its role in reality. A la the threads concerning mushroom use as an evolutionary agent.

Not to say that there is no wieght to that theory...im just observing obervences which can be observed if one takes an objective, observational vantage point.

well it says the mushroom syndrome. just seeing if you were trying to generalize a lot of people into one catagory. what does this have to do with the topic? yoiu're giving definitions of what happens on the mushrooms trip for other people. it's obvious you don't feel the way they do, so then how can you say what interconnectedness that they feel or don't feel. that's what I mean. you made a bunch of assumptions up.

"When one does mushrooms, all sorts of amazing connections and congruencies begin to appear. While on a trip, events all seem linked somehow, coincidences are of mammoth proportions. You look down at the ground, and that once boring concrete is now swimming with an inter-connected pattern.

Thusly, mushrooms make the user feel that everything in life is connected. The agent for this ipifiny is of course - mushrooms."

loads of judgements and the way you wrote it makes it look like you're almost writing an FAQ like "voice" or "tone"

thusly, the user......... that's kinda why it struck me as so bold.
