magic mushrooms
    #3053732 - 08/26/04 03:54 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

what do ya think?
Is there more to mushrooms than just a chemical?
You may choose only one
mushrooms just contain chemicals that make you see funny things
there is something more to mushrooms, they are here for a reason

personal opinion is that life is devoid of reason
therefore, mushrooms are just full of fun chemicals

I sort of think both those statements are true.

This is an inchoate question. You need to define the "something more" and the "reason" part first.

This is what is known as a false dilemma.

Its like "Please select the truth:"

a. I am a turtle.

b. I am a bicycle.

umm where's c?

You get out of mushrooms what you put into them. They will only expand your mind if you allow them to.

mushrooms contain checmicals that makes you see things.  it is the user that determiens the reason behind it.  therefore I can't say that they are here for ONE specific reason. 
just my opinion of course :wink:


--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

mushrooms temporarily make me see things (in every sense of the word "see") that I would not normally see.

That in itself, whether or not these things are real, is absolutely fascinating

Tricky worded question, kott!

I had to chose the "just chemicals" option, though I COULD have chosen the other.

I DO NOT think that mushrooms were "put here" purposefully by any being. I DO NOT think that mushrooms are anything more to us than a drug (psilocin).

However I DO think that mushrooms are another perfect example of self-organization in nature and the universe. The fact that a species so drastically different from our own would contain a chemical so drastically SIMILAR to a chemical in our brain speaks volumes about the interconnectedness of all things.


--------------------
You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

hard to answer, i know when i trip that it is just chemicals working on me but i see the mushroom experience as something more, something spiritual.

You get out of mushrooms what you put into them.

I put horse poop and straw into mine.

more than just another drug.

That certainly clarifies.  :rolleyes: I have no idea what "just another drug" is, as each has their own unique properties. Is an apple "more" than a loaf of bread?

Trendal, are you refering to nature as creator rather than 'any being' (god)?
you have acknoweldged the complex yet rational harmony and interconnectedness in nature so maybe mushrooms, like humankind, and everything else in the world is made because it is essential in sustaining or influencing something else? so isn't that by default, purposeful?
i doubt that the purpose of shrooms is to provide you with some amuzing but meaningless hallucinations. that is the easy way to look at it.
