Dosages back in the Day
    #2910904 - 07/21/04 01:56 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I was reading a book called "Acid Dreams" today, and was looking at a section talking about LSD and mushrooms making rounds in social and literary circles in the 50s. It talks about how people like Leary and Ginsberg had one amazing first experience that really changed their perspectives on everything.

Now, I've done an eight of good mushrooms a few times, and while I thoroughly enjoyed the experience  :stoned: I didn't have all the incredibly superflous experiences and revelations they talked about it.

Were these guys doing a lot more in one dose than we do these days? What I've done is all well and good, but I just don't see 3.5g of cubes making 4 star generals quit and become organic farmers and stuff. I'm guessing the mushroom and LSD doses were much more back then? That article on the discoverer of PCRs said that his first dose was 1000 mcg of LSD!

Imagine eating 5 grams of shrooms. Imagine eating 5 grams of shrooms when you've never been drunk, smoked pot or any of that. No one instructs you in the experience, or tells you what to expect. It's a total mindfuck.

That's what alot of people experienced.

We live together, we act on, and react to, one another; but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves. The martyrs go hand in hand into the arena; they are crucified alone. Embraced, the lovers desperately try to fuse their insulated ecstasies into a single self-transcendence; in vain. By its very nature every embodied spirit is doomed to suffer and enjoy in solitude. Sensations, feelings, insights, fancies--all these are private and, ex- cept through symbols and at second hand, incommunicable. We can pool information about experiences, but never the experiences themselves. From family to nation, every human group is a society of island universes.

I could definatly see a high dose changing someones mind about things.

High doses of shrooms for me... once i get to the point where i cant really move/see and mostly ill think about is all super analytical stuff about myself. Ill go off in dream states picturing myself in different situations and stuff. Whats going on in life....

This is the only time I really feel alive.

Wouldnt it depend on what type of person they were? maybe this was to do with personal issues, we all trip in different ways.
