A picture is worth a thousand words

And I think these pictures describe my beliefs better than any words could:

They all have so much meaning to me, specially this two:

This one makes me remember my salvia trips ... don?t know why, maybe the patterns, maybe the ascension ...

What a wonderful world ... :wink:

i wonder what it is about eyes being all over the place like that and tripping.. they're such a common theme in all my "visions" & cev's... i just wish i figure out who and what they are :smile:

and :thumbup: on the post, artwork says a lot about humanity and our situation, and alex grey is one of the best at expressing what a lot of us go through :laugh:

These aren't especially remarkable until you're told that they are not animated. Put your finger on the screen and see for yourself! You have to click to enlarge them enough to see the effect.






The 'spirals' you see in this one are not spirals... follow one with your finger and you'll see that these are concentric circles, not spirals.


Trippy, eh?

2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

Totally. I see eyes everywhere when I trip. I've always wondered how many others experience this. I asked a group of friends once when we were all tripping and I was the only one who saw the eyes and faces everywhere.  Of course I'm usually the one that eats the largest amount of shrooms too, so that could possibly have something to do with it....don't know.

And yeah, thanks for the Alex Gray pics.  I have a copy of the sacred mirrors on my coffee table that I've owned for about 13 years or so....needless to say, it is very tattered and well loved!  I really really love that guy. He is so amazing.  His work  is exactly the kind of thing I see and think about when tripping. :heart:

Alex Grey is a total genius. I completely agree, man. Those pics describe my spirituality in ways that words couldn't even begin to.

awesome and inspiring!


--------------------
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

I said the same thing about Alex Grey. Absolutely breathtaking art. Almost as if the imagery is a memory stored in our minds that we know of but fail to communicate with words.
