Cool skills learned while tripping
    #2924502 - 07/24/04 10:18 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I've found psychedelics to be quite remarkable in their ability to enhance certain skills above and beyond what should be expected for casual practice. For example, when I got my first PC (1994) I couldn't type worth a damn, but months later I took a hit of acid and spent a great deal of time writing a trip log. I found that if I closed my eyes I could see the keyboard perfectly well as an afterimage, and I could type fast and accurately with my eyes closed! To this day, I have retained that ability.

Also, I was fairly clumsy with balisong (butterfly knives) until I tried playing with them on acid and then again on mushrooms. The mushrooms greatly enhanced my skills. Before the trip, I could do some basic opening and closing moves. During the trip, I found I could flip the knives up in the air and catch them either open or closed consistently. Again, to this day this skill remains.

Does anyone have any skills they've practised while on psychedelics? Have you found your skills greatly improved after a trip, above and beyond what improvements you'd expect from a few hours of practice?
I bet that's a big YES for musicians. Anyone have any more esoteric skills they've developed while tripping?

Yeah, well I grew up with a computer so I can do that without the aid of drugs, as far as actually learning a new skill on psychedelics, I haven't been able to do it. I freestyle a lot and have heard of people being able to rap a lot better on psychedelics, but I can't do it at all. Although this one time on prescription amphetamines I rapped for 9 hours straight, no exagerration. I actually woke myself up rapping at one point, kinda weird. My friends I've tripped with who play guitar and stuff were unable to play at all most of the time, and when they could it sounded like shit. It just varies for people I suppose.

You are right, I learned three new guitar songs in one night during my second acid trip.

I've been studying and progressively learning instruments throughout my entire life.

I played in the royal conservatory for 10 years, I practice violin, guitar for 5 and have been taking vocal lessons for 10 years also.

Naturally I love to play listen and visualize music while stoned. Something I found while specifically high on mushrooms is;

Vocally I can sing almost one full octave above my normal limits
On the piano I can create structured music(like memorize a randomly inspired chord combination in one bar) in very VERY odd time signatures.
On the Guitar my scales really come together, arpeggios can be played allegro.

The violin is where I fall apart though. I'm awestruck by the sound, so it's fun to miss with it as well, although technically on this instrument I am incapacitated.

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 have found that freestyling is much easier on mushrooms (not that i freestyle, but have tried). It's odd though because the concrete things you are trying to flow are interrupted by bizarre abstract thoughts. The thought flow is so much quicker though, and things just come together. I have a friend who is pretty good with a butterfly knife, and he happens to take lots of psychedelics :p Not sure if this is relevant or not. Peace

If you're good at anything in real life, you're likely to be even better on shrooms.

If you're crap on the other hand....

I decided to climb a tree on a 7 gram trip once and was amazed at how fast and easily I had got to the top, it just came so naturally.

I talked to my friends dog one time, and when I looked in her eyes I ran to my friend, told him to stop neglecting his dog. He needs to play with her more, she's old, but she still needs loving. His dog stuck with me for the rest of the trip and she loves me to bits, before my trip, she would growl at me forever.

I've also learned to speak my mind while I'm on mushrooms. The same friend doesn't have the greatest relationship with his mom, and everyone's been too wary to bring issues up with him. I told him to just talk to his damn mom and work things out, nothing's stopping him. In context, it sounds easy to just 'solve your problems' but I let him know it wasn't going to be easy. But he's got two choices, make his life better or become more miserable. I could never tell him that had I not been on mushrooms.
It doesn't sound like much to just speak my mind, but I can't explain it... I just thought so incredibly deep, all the words that came out of my mind were so fresh. That's the only way I can explain it. I wish I could go to a gathering one day and just piss about with you guys.

Oh yeah, i forgot to add my first rock climbing experience was on 4g of mushies and it was hard to say the least. I don't know if i was any better off though because my death perception was really messed up, and i thought about dying a lot.

I do extremely well at pool when I play trippin, I think its because I hyperfocus on it for the 15 minutes. I play and then after that Im back to the most random trippin thoughts imaginable

I think some of you have to realize though. If your confident that the substance will help you than it probably will :shocked:, if your confident it'll screw you over than it probably will too, effects & "strength" differs between substances ofcourse and I dont claim this must always be the case for everyone because ppl are different in their mental approaches, but this is my general understanding.

I found that alot of the good things I do/learn when on a substance which I wasnt able to figure out yet while sober can be done the same sober later on instructional wize, not exactly the same obviously because your not under the influence. If you just take the time to observe how exactly you thought of something and arrived to its conclusions you can try it later on sober. Even with hacky sac for example, if you pay close attention to just how you kicked the sac (maybe you angled your leg more and kicked with less force.. who knows), later on while sober you can try kicking it with the same movement/force ect.

Theres a placebo effect with so many things in life, to the smallest things you could imagine, ie; ppl who smoke cigs thinking they need the cig to relax otherwise obtaining the same level of relaxation in the same amount of time and effort isnt feasible, which simply isnt true.

My friends and I had always had a huge Super Smash Bros. Melee rivalry on GameCube...the first time I tripped on acid was with those three friends and once we were tripping nice and good, we turned it on and played...I beat them round after round, and the kill count was 9 to 1 to 1 to 1 in my favor..after about five times I put down the controller, announcing that I couldn't play any longer since I was whuppin' so hard...the first time I played sober after that, it was really like I was way more in touch with the game and have been since. Might not be any sort of important skill..but still.


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