Take a real good look at yourself.
    #2862467 - 07/06/04 08:59 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I suggest going into the bathroom or sitting infront of a large mirror and just staring into it at your face. Stand close or far, but just stare.

Mirrors pushed my friend to the edge of sanity on her first trip. She was scared off herself yet couldn't stop looking.

After analyzing it when she came down, she had quite the life changing revelation. Ever since she has became very self-confident.

When I'm good tripping, my image in the mirror shows me with the biggest smile, and the colour of my skin is just so saturated in some golden colour. If I'm tripping to the point where I have some ego splitting, in some way I'll see that in the mirror. And sometime my pupils seem to get bigger and smaller, changing independently from eachother.

On the other hand, when I'm bad tripping and looking in the mirror, I look like someone without hope, in complete despair, and all my colour is drained from me... not a pretty sight.

Yea, it's provocative to introspective thought. Plus, you can see same crazy visual distortions.

I don't get some people...

Why the hell wouldn't you try it? Afraid you might see your real self?

I looked in the mirror yesterday; and all I saw was one happy freak with dilated pupils ...

Running away from your fears won't help; you have to look them straight in the face!

The first three times I took acid, I looked into the bathroom mirror for a long time. The second time I got completely naked, and just watched myself, and for a few minutes, I grew old and then young again and then old and then young again, it was really bugging me out, especially when at one point I got older than usual, and started looking like a rotting gargoyle.

Interestingly enough, during the fourth LSD trip I was surrounded by feelings of completion, especially having to do with the people I was tripping with, as if all my life had been pre-empting that one moment. I looked into the mirror, and while everything else moved and flowed, I looked still, and beautiful. I remember smiling at myself, and it meant so much.


--------------------
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.

Its a waste, considering you could. Play with your tracers. For example. Glow sticks!? I don't know about you. But I like to play with my acid trip.

My face started morphing and sagging. It looked like my skin was sliding off my face. I wasn't freaked out, more amazed actually. And my skin was changing colors like a cameleon! It's worth trying at least once or twice.

I've tried that a couple times, but while looking at my faced doing weird shit i start thinking about just intense mind bending things, so i personally don;t like looking into the mirror when tripping.

What the hell do you call staring into a mirror but another way to play with your trip? :smile:  Not to mention, I think that you'd be more likely to have some really -interesting- thought-processes happen while you're mirror-staring than raving with glowsticks ... not that I've got anything against that.  :wink:

But whether a trip is 'wasted' or not is entirely in the mind of the tripper.

Um...I think there aren't many things that could "waste" an acid trip. It's kind of the point of tripping - you become the moment, and the moment becomes you, and therefore, everything that comprises you, the moment, and the world around you is anything but a waste. If every moment of reality, sober or not, contributes to who you are becoming, then spending 1 minute or six hours staring into a mirror on acid can't be considered a waste. What if you saw past yourself in that mirror, straight on down to your perception of a godhead? The mirror isn't even a mirror anymore, and your reflection isn't even your reflection - they're all revealed as metaphors for some underlying truth.
Waste? No waste. Just experience.
