Come into the trip with questions
    #2830867 - 06/26/04 02:55 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Before coming into the trip, write down questions that you or your friends have for the mushrooms to answer. coming up with the questions are kind of hard, of course. just think, if you could ask about anything in the world, what would you ask? i asked the question in my signature (just in case i change it, it is: What is our purpose?) and my friend who was tripping said: to make our own purpose. it just occured to me when i was talking with him that he could answer anything for me, so i just came up with a random question. hope this helps a bit.

Great idea!

That really facilitates things when you're in the altered state.
I find it hard sometimes to steer myself in any direction when I'm trippin, unless someone does it for me. :smile:

hmm

So let's take this to the next step.
What kind of questions would everyone write down? Cmon shroomerites, show us your best.

A few of mine:
-If you saw an alien, would you run or attempt to communicate?
-Are you a healthy person?
-Can you associate one abstract thing with every primary/secondary color? Nothing tangible or visible.
-Look at a wall, what's the first thing you see that is unusual?
-Can you imagine a line of ants from your backyard to the moon? the sun?

I would definatly ask about death/afterlife. Because i cannot get the fact that one day i am going to die, and then whatever happens to me is completely unknown. I have the classic Westernised fear of death.

I would also ask the mushroom if it would be kind to me on higher doses of shrooms. Then i would ask it to tell me all it knows about love.

When I trip next (which will be my first solo experience), I plan on doing something like this. A few of the things I would/will ask about are:

- Death, of course
- What is pain? (Just because in my first trip, I "taught" myself that pain is mostly just in my head.)

Hmm... this is harder to think up questions than I thought it would be. I know I would be asking a lot of "why" questions. I like to try to think up answers to explain the way things are the way they are, or why people (myself included) act the way they do.

My favourite question is this:
"What is reality?" as Morpheus asked to Neo in Matrix.
Better to ask while enjoying the visuals :=)

"What is reality?" is a damn good question. Ever since the first time I tripped, I've felt like shrooms expose the REAL world to you. A world where all of life's little bullshit doesn't matter in the least. Perhaps they don't show the "real" world, just what I wish the real world was like.

Damn I need to find me some mushrooms. At least it's raining right now.

"What exactly are these hallucinations I'm seeing?"

"How many thoughts could I think in one second?"

"Are we being watched?"

"Who am I?"

"What am I doing here?"

"Why am I shrooming?"

These may trip you out (In that order, too)

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

"How many thoughts could I think in one second?"

I'm putting that one on my list for my next trip. That is an intriguing question.

"What is my greatest fear?"
"Why did the chicken cross the road?" :wink:
"Are there seperate realities existing simultaneously with this one?"
"Why are mushrooms here on earth?"
"Are the revelations you come across on lsd and mushrooms illusions?"

I guess that last one is kind of weird, because if it said yes, it could be an illusion, depleting the whole point anyways...or something like that. Good idea tripped.

Damn, Strump, are you trying to make us lose our heads? hehe

These are some good questions guys.

I initially missed "ask the mushroom" part, as my questions are pretty far off what you intended! Sorry bout that... I thought you meant just ask a buddy you're tripping with

does the universe end?

whats at the end of it?


If there was nothing ever created would that nothingness have a color?
WOuld it take up any amount of space? (These are taken with the idea that there would be some kind of something for nothingness to exist in. though i'm under the impression that nothingness is also a something)


If we gave a dose of our favorite drug to a politician and they saw what we love could there be change?



Is there a God and could he/she create something more powerful than him/her?

What is your name?

What am I looking at?

Why are we here?

How did we get here?

How and when did YOU get here?

How do our brains work?

What happens after you die?

Is there really a god, or just entities people perceive as a god?

What do I need to do to become a better human being?

A nonspatial continium of events which seem to occur in an irreversible order through our past present and future.

A methodology of recording, databasing, refining and defining our lives and the lives of those around us.

My questions for my upcoming trip:

If all life is pre-determined and destiny must inevitably take it's course, where was I before birth, in what realm did my spirit or soul exist, who was and who am I?

Interesting idea, but I've found that tripping dredges up thoughts and ideas so far removed from those we have during sobriety that, when going into the experience with a question thought up while sober, the question might seem trivial to the tripping mind. The questions we pose to ourselves while tripping are much more suited to be answered by the tripping mind.

thats a really good idea. i never thought to do it before. but i will definitly try it.
After i tripped the first reality has been slightly skewwed like if i smoke or drink its like i have a voice in my head saying are you sure this is real? are you sure? even sometimes when im completely sober i get the feeling that maybe im not real. maybe these are just flash backs but they freak the fuck out of me

I see a psychotherapist for casual reasons (mainly to stimulate the creative process) and he's gotten me engaged in the process of asking questions of my dreams...so when I'm falling asleep, I think of things I want to figure out somehow, asking myself over and over again some sort of question, and it really does affect your dreams..
The state of tripping is one I definitely associate with dreamstates, so asking yourself questions in the same meditative manner before a trip could definitely stimulate a response..


--------------------
Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.
