Mirrors

I notice a lot of people don't like looking in the mirror while tripping. I wonder why that is. Personally, I love watching my face morph in front of me.

it's very easy for insecurities about one's self to surface.

i've heard a lot of people say that it can be quite hellish, but also very eye opening and thus worth the torment.  i've seen myself in the mirror in that situation but i try not to dwell and i move on.  to be honest, i think i'm a little afraid of what i might see!

Yeah me too.
a couple of times it's freaked me out, but every time my skin looks really blotchy, and my eyes are totally out of proportion.
Focus on one feature and it grows or shrinks or turns into bricks... It's quite fun.

It really boosts self confidence if you have a problem in that area as well. You become quite critical of yourself, if you get caught in that spiral...

playing out and seeing a bunch of emotions and facial reactions is fuckin HIlarious

i dont like it because everytime i look in when, it feels like my glasses are really bent (anyone with glasses knows) i get that fish eye thing going like when you first put on a new script...it really annoys me.

I've heard not to look in the mirror either, though by the time i had heard that i was already a fan of looking in the mirror. I rather like the visuals it gives me, although i could understand how some peopld could find it disturbing to see their face warp and change like that.

I dont really mind it. But I can think of 3000 other better things to do than stand infront of a mirror for hours on end. Like take a walk through the woods or ect.

I love looking into the mirror when tripping, it feels like a battle of endurance...how long can I be aware of myself?

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.

here's an idea.

the next time tripping out in the woods, you can find a pond or puddle and look at yourself in that! wow.. that might be even weirder

I remember my face, it was more surreal, like a cartoon.

My first trip on acid was spent in front of a mirror for a while. It was so crazy. I can understand how people wouldn't llike it though.

LOL I love looking in the mirror. It is always such a riot, especially when you act goofy...but it is so easy to get stuck and I always have a hard time pulling away.

whenever i used to look in the mirror while tripping i always looked like a wise old man but now that i cut my hair real short i always see some marine dude or a surfer dude or something. i too notice my skin is more blotchy like blastrid said. another thing it does (especially shrooms) is makes me assosciate others and myself as some sort of animal, not that the person actually looks like an animal but i associate them to be similar to one (like one friend has gopher tendencies and another a turtle or dolphin) just examples :tongue:

oh and it makes my body seem more defined, like everything more pronounced like how if you look at tress you see each individual leave rather than as a whole, this leads to me occasionally taking off my shirt and checking myself out... heh guess i'm kinda vein :blush:
