Psychedelic symbol?? (Leary, Alpert, Metzner)
    #2680052 - 05/14/04 10:42 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

hi fellow entheogen enthusiasts.
Im requesting help in finding out if the symbol used in this edition of "Psychedelic experience" (http://www.erowid.org/library/books/psychedelic_experience.shtml) is an invented symbol that stands for psychedelic experience or if it already existed before the book, and if so what does it mean?

hi fellow.
In helping you to find this out, I have to say that the artwork on the book is, well, artwork.

It looks Eastern but...'stand for psychedelic experience'?
What really stands for anything? We can stand for our beliefs. We can stand in line to get food or beer. We can have avatars of books that stand for our ability to make these avatars and have them stand for our questions about artwork that stands for books that stand for a doctrine of the truths we find to be ummm, enlightening.

'invented symbol'?
A symbol is never invented. It is only made manifest on a medium after having been given life inside the mind, never invented. Art is an extension of the power of life, therefore it is life and can never be invented. Only given birth to.

'what does it mean'?
It is meant to be loved. Art is created by one mind that is a tiny part of the universe. When other extensions of the universe see artwork, the art is recognized as having come from within the greater consciousness and loved for being the created child of itself. That in essence, means art can represent everything that exists and does not exist since all this is within the macrocosm and is thereby loved for being the created.

I like the artwork on the album below. I don't have any tattoos and I don't plan on getting any tattoos, but if I did, it would be that.
