question on visuals
    #2217031 - 01/03/04 07:15 PM (13 years, 24 days ago)

whats up everyone
I just did some mushrooms last nite and i gotta say one of my favorite parts about tripping is the art i see in the wooden walls and the roof and in trees and buildings and jus about anything.. When i'm tripping I see alot of the abstract art styles that i've seen done by artists. Some realy famous styles that i'm sure all of you have seen before in paintings. I was wonderin if these artists got the idea for their art by seeing it when they were on shrooms or if i'm seeing this art in the walls because i've seen it so many times before from these artist's works and the shrooms jus bring back the memories of it and paint it on the walls for me.
what do you guys think?
I'm not sure if i explained my question that clearly if u can't understand it i'l rewrite it

I think that psychedelic drugs open up your perception by bypassing the filters in our brains that decide what stimulus is 'useful' and what stimulus is 'not useful'. By doing so, it causes us to see things that we normally wouldn't notice. I also believe that certain artists can bypass these filters naturally. They're just born that way (lucky bastards). So they are seeing natural patterns that are so subtle that the 'normal' mind decides that they aren't usefull, and doesn't bother reporting. It has also been my experience that this state can be achieved through meditation, trance, fasting, and sleep depravation, but shrooms are more fun!

All of the above, and...
you're drawing on the full resources of your brain (your memories of such art) and also looking at patterns and connections in your surroundings. In non-scientific terms, it feels to me like my brain is trying to make everything even more beautiful.

I sometimes see native American looking art over everything. Other times, it's like Peter Max or Jackson Pollack or Mondrian. And of course, sometimes I can't define it at all.
