try using a *MINDFOLD*....(trip report)
    #2966710 - 08/05/04 03:44 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

hey everyone...


ok, so heres the deal, i purchased this thing called the MINDFOLD from alexgrey.com...basically, its like foam black giant goggle type thing to help u "relax"....AKA, u put it on, and u stare into complete total darkness with your eyes wide open....pretty weird....



so anyway, i ground up 2.5 grams of some very potent mushies...put them in 4 gelcaps, and ingested them at noon....usually when i gel cap them, it hits me very fast so i was expecting to feel something in about 20-30 min...


however, i was kinda shocked to find it was now one o clock and still nothing...

at this point, i knew what was going to come was going to be really short and intense, and well it was....the famous "PATTERN" emerged almost onto an invisible landscape, drifting back and forth and under my rug....geometric patterns of leaves and roses began being drawn onto the blue rug by the paintbrush of earth...i layed in my bed, turned the A/C on, and tried relaxing...


within seconds my entire room became transformed into non stop waves of confusion, dancing patterns on the walls...


so, i burned this mix cd with about 15 tracks...i layed on my bed, put the *MINDFOLD* device around my head, and then i used my headphones to listen to the cd......it started off with this song by the band LIVE called unsheathed, followed by various perfect circle, and tool songs, children by robert miles (blew my mind by the way)...

so basically, this mindold thing started off by opening this 3 dimensional world inside the darkness....not as many COLORS as i had thought, more shapes and patterns everywhere....in the darkness i saw a womans face, things dancing around her....shapes that formed 3-d tunnels for me to ride thru, feeling as tho this were all just a dream...an illusion....embraced in the womb of the earth as a dream....


as good as all of this may sound, things got a bit weird...after every song, id want to get up and drink water and id be caught just sitting there in silence....and everything in my room was moving, but yet time was not....it was very odd....it scared me even, i felt like i was the only person, and time had just stopped...it was about 245 pm (my trip was about done, i told u it was fast and intense)....so at 245 i just felt wow i have the whole day ahead of me and im so bored what do i do know....time still was yet to move the minutes were being peeled off for what seemed to be hrs....

and on this sunny, humid day, then came drops of rain for about a total of 10 min tops....and the secpnd the rain started, i layed there in silence and tears ever so slowly streamed down my face sending a cooling chill into my entire body...it was an incredible feeling, i cant really describe it much....and the second the rain ended, i stopped tearing....




that about sums it up, i just wanna know if anyone has any thoughts, suggestions, or similar experiences...the moral is...who knows, but the mindfold provided some VERY INTERESTING visuals.....if u like closed eye visuals i recommend it....

I think I would forget I had it on, and then try to open my eyes and then think that I was blind.  that would be interesting, hehe.  :smile:

My friend is quite the Alex Grey aficionado and was talking to me about this a few months ago. It seems beneficial in that everything you visualize is pretty much of your own mind rather than being affected by external objects.

Personally I think I would be very vulnerable to freaking out with something like that. I'd rather just close my eyes when I felt the desire.

Good report :smile:

Something sort of like this is... the NovaDreamer?
http://www.lucidity.com/novadreamer.html
when your tripping your REM levels go up, making the NovaDreamer? spring into action, while your awake.. check it out.

I've been wanting to order this too. When I trip at night, the lights just bother me. this would solve it and give additional menefits of the ability to stare into complete darkness. could be a nice experience

Sounds like a great device, i might pick one of these up someday. My CEV's usually consist of VERY complex machinistic movements. I vividly remember watching this child with hundreds of skinny, rusted bronze arms (more like strips of metal) that were trying to break my mind down through complex movement. Let me tell you, it worked :p

i got a mindfold a while back, and my buddy and i decided to try it after we had eaten a few mushies. so i put the mindfold on and i was describing how it was odd...yata yata..
and after about three or four minutes i took the thing off, i was way too jumpy to be blind, anyway my friend had snuck up on me and was standing like three inches in front of my face, he was previously across the room, well needless to say i jumped out of my f'n chair and preceded to laugh for about half an hour. still have to get my friend back. i like to wait a while so he wont expect it.
peace 00
