The myth of objective reality
    #2202257 - 12/26/03 03:51 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Hey, I'm not sure if this doesn't technically fall under Trip Tips.  It was originally an
email and I'm too lazy to re-write it, though I did shorten it somewhat...

E decided to have a evening of watching Metropolis using his PS2 that he'd set up to
play DVDs and project the image onto a big white wall, which was awfully neat.  Shortly
thereafter A's little brother showed up.  As we were heading off to smoke a
couple of bowls in E's garage M and A arrived.  Anyways, shortly after heading back
in we make mushroom tea (about 3 grams/cup) which we drank while watching Metropolis.
Needless to say by the end of the movie me and E, who was also having the shroom tea, are
right properly fucked.  M, A and A's brother go home shortly thereafter and E
and I decide to go for a walk to find a good tree to climb.  It's about 1 am in december, so
there aren't many people out and about.  We head past sceneic Fort Henry and stroll along
the lovely waterfront path until we come to this lovely little overhang by this ancient
cedar tree.  We hang out there for a minute, smoke a bit more, chat and then...
(ominous music)
I glance out towards Cedar Island and see the Wolfe Island ferry.  It's lights are looking a
little odd, but I chalk that up to the tea.  I poke E until he wakes from his
reverie and looks at the ferry.  Then, quite suddenly, the lights start winking out in a
manner that seemed quite unusual and (dare I say it!) odd.  In a few seconds the lights are
gone, and so is the ferry.  This naturally puzzled us so we did our best to try and spot the
ferry, but being as we were in a nook in a cliff we couldn't run around to check things out
too thoroughly.  We had had a perfect view of the expanse of water between Cedar Island and
Fort Henry where the ferry had last been seen.  E and I discussed what we had seen to make
sure that we had, indeed seen the same thing.  I was disheartened by E's input, which
described the lights as 'flying' and his assertion that 'Something's afoot on Cedar Island'.
Anyways, we figured we'd head back to E's at this point and ponder what had just happened.
As we emerged from the parking lot behind Fort Henry we couldn't help but notice that there
was a gigantic spotlight on us.  It seemed to follow us as we walked down Fort Henry hill.
Our pupils being the size of dinnerplates, it was rather hard to focus on the source of the
giant spolight, but I managed to temporarily convince myself it was a police cruiser.  We
commented on how we had perhaps 'seen something we weren't supposed to' and were quite
disappointed when we made it down the hill and it turned out the spotlight was just a
spotlight for illuminating the Fort at night.  So much for the conspiracy theory.  Sighh...

Anyways, with the whole disappearing ferry thing...  I've thought of three possible reasonable
    I)  The ferry entered a patch of fog that we were unable to see, hence the lights fading
out.  The absence of the lights combined with our ocular inebriation prevented us from seeing
the ferry after it entered the fog.  Or something like that... Ooo, it was a weather baloon!  Yep,
that's it.
    II)  It was aliens.  Of course.  Curse those tricky devils!
    III)  Occaisonally reality doesn't make sense.  Don't worry, it's nothing to get too
worked up about.  It just serves to demonstrate the total absense of an objective reality
and illustrate the lack of rigidity inherent in subjective reality.

Any thoughts regarding situations in which several people observe some phenomenon which
obviously is in conflict with what we know of some fairly fundemental 'laws' of reality?

Don't worry, I'm wrong.

Once when we took LSd with my friends sth weird happened;
I was talkin with a female friend of mine and another friend of us was listening to us.The thing is that we knew I like her and she likes me.While we're talkin suddenly a flash!Two flashlights coming from our heads bump against each other in the air so that we felt sth like explosion.The funny thing is that the other guy who was listening to us saw it,too.What a fuckin thing he said I saw you hit each other......
Which is the reality I don't know but relativity is the word for sure!
