If shroomery ruled the world...
    #3534690 - 12/23/04 04:33 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I should probably introduce myself before I get into the purpose of this thread. I'm a long time lover of hallucinogens and am well aquanted with altered mind states or, 'tripnosis' as I like to call it. So I've been around the block a few times. I'm still a student though, (literally a college student and) a student of life. I may not be the most 'book smart' person around but I think I understand some important things. Anyways, that's me, now here's my suggestion/question...

What is the meaning of life? That's such a cliche question. Everyone wants to know it, but there's really no definive answer. What I think is that life has the meaninig that you give to it. Everyone knows this also-- it is stated in the cliche: Life is what you make of it.
So here we are, a community of shroom lovers reading and contributing to this blog from various places around the world. We are a unique organization that would probably never exist if it weren't for the internet. Every social/religious group or political party tries to define the meaning of life for the rest of the world and manifest that vision through action. So, if shroomery.org (or it's membership) ruled the world, what would be it's vision and how would it be defined in terms of the ideal lifestyle?

If anyone ought to have ideas about life's meaning, it should be the englightened contributers of these forums. Any thoughts?

Welcome to the community!

Whatever the shroomery's vision would be on how to rule the world, this vision would probably get very blurry and unfocused very quick due to the power that corrupts. Something in the line of "if you don't eat your meat, how are you going to have any mushrooms?! How are you going to have any mushrooms if you don't eat your meat?!" haha

What if everyone ruled the world?

we'd probably try to live by these simple words, get fucked over, and not rule the world any more... end up right back here where we started. it's a nice thought though :smile:

this is a damn interesting topic, new one!! i like your train of thought already!! i think for this topic to be fully purged, we as the shroomery should bump this topic if it should get too far out of site to the whores. they need to see this and give their opinion. as for me, i am trizzashed ans could explain myself given enough time, and i might, but later....................

Interesting responses! Although there hasn't been an organization devoted to psycidellic enlightenment in modern history, we know of civilizations of the past which ceremonially sought wisdom from the mushroom. There was, however, a social movement in recent times-- the hippies of the 60's-70's-- which identified with psycedelics. Thier campaign was centered around ideals of peace, love, and tolerance. I would venture to say that the majority of posters at shroomery would subscribe to these same ideals. How about this curveball though; would we be an industrious, technology oriented people, or would we prefer the minimalistic, 'natural' lifestyle? Any thoughts?

My opinion that I have formed based on what I have read over the last 1 or so is that this would be a minimalistic society. No rules. No work. Everyone would just do what they wanted, doing the minimum to survive. And fuck The Man.

Therefore, the shroomery would not rule the world. The shroomery would want the world to leave it alone.

I am probably wrong, but this is the type of response I mostly see here, is that people don't like The Man, and would rather live away from society.

I sometimes find myself disgusted by the way society looks. My point of view is so obscure now that I hate things about society more then i love sex. Anyway, to the point.

If shroomery ruled the world, first thing I don't think any members would want to put up with the shit of controlling a whole bunch of ignorant people. I'd build a teleportation machine and ship everyone but me and some really fine chick that loves to have sex off the planet.

Now on a more serious side, If i were always doing what I wanted to do then there would be no point in trying to control others, but let others control themselves. Sort of socialism to an extent that no one puts rules over our heads.

Peace,
Droz

In response to soulmotion, If I could I'd spend every moment of my life out in nature. Listening to the wind move the trees and feeling the fresh air upon my face. I'm sure there would still be times when I wanted to move indoors for weather reasons, like hard rains and snow.

I'd try and take life slowly as possible. Slow my life down a bit where one can actually think about things deeply and thoroughly.

theres lots of members here. jsut look at these 4 forums for an idea on how divers we are.

this one (S&P
Politics
the garden
the pub

i liek the idea and i think there would probably be somewhat mor etolerence than waht we see in the western world. but honestly i thing we sould still fuck up, cheat, lie, bomb, log, poison the eath. we are still human. i have little to no faith in this species way of life.

like every religion, group, or organization we'd start of with a nice idea, philosophy, message, but after time we'd try to build a social structure of it out of misinterpreting our original message and turning it into a bunch of ridiculous rules and laws.. basically we'd just eventually start paying attention to the little details so much we forget our principle message.

We'd have peace in mind knowing that we had control over things.
