Pattern Recognition and Book Recommendation...
    #2870660 - 07/09/04 12:04 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

While psychedelicized... do any of you pick up on visual cues (i.e., body language) and other items (perhaps oral communication) and then easily predict the next statement of another person? Or pick up on any patterns and then foresee the next sequence? Some, I think, mistake enhanced pattern-recognition while on 'shrooms (or LSD, etc.) as prophetic... but I think we just become aware of the determistic and habitual flow of reality and are one-step ahead of the Game...

In pattern-recognition, we are able to deconstruct reality (i.e., relationships, culture, government, reality from the cosmos down to atoms, et cetera).

What do you think?

Also, this thread is inspired by the book I read: Lysergically Yours.

It is available free in eBook form at: http://freecache.org/http://256k.org/fd/ly-ebook.txt and the homepage for the author and his work is: http://www.frankduff.com

The book is also available for purchase for only $7!

The work is amazing and is clearly written by a LSD-influenced author (especially considering his willingness to distribute his art freely).

For any experienced psychedelic user (particularly LSD), the author cleverly adapts the psychedelic effects on the mind--with particular emphasis on the enhanced pattern-recognition of reality and the awareness of the ripples within the sea of oneness. Both are integral characteristics of a psychedelicized mind and Duff masterfully portrays their qualities.

Enjoy the read!

Before you attempt to deconstruct the mechanics, one must (a true scientist anyway) demonstrate that one is able (via third-parties, not their own serotonin-scrambled perception) to predict the next statement of another.

The proof is in the pudding.

What I think he really meant was that acid freaks will love it and I concur.

you are talking about dancing.
we know the steps
we dance together to the music
what's so surprising about it?

even science is magic, and scientists priests, (have to hurry off to the lab now)
