Beyond Level 5?
    #371912 - 08/14/01 04:50 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

Hi all,

Sorry I couldn't find a more on-topic fourm to post this to. I was just wondering, has anyone ever taken an unusually large dose of shrooms? How about an extended dose? Is there anything out there in the shroom world beyond level 5 such as "Plateu Sigma" with DXM? If so, what could be expected from such a dose?

of course there is "beyond level 5," you just won't be able to think about it when you hit it (loss of ego) i dont really know how far you can go on a trip, but at a certain point, when the world no longer exists in any form, i think that's when you know you've reached the top. but you won't realize it because you won't have an ego anymore; you will no longer exist, so you won't be able to even think about how far you've gone. of course this is only what I've heard, I haven't experienced it and don't really care to for that matter.

"If you've never gone too far...You'll never know how far you can go." I think T.S. Elliot wrote that. Good in almost any of lifes circumstances.

I don't think you would want to go beyond level 5. I don't even like a level 4, because I feel that I loose control a bit; I like to be in control, so usually I do a level 2-3 trip...

Beyond level 5, you have no control. You'll have to tie yourself down to a bed and go to the washroom before tripping, or else you might walk into oncoming traffic while shitting your pants.

I have had a trip beyond level 5 before, but I never posted it here because some people think that you are just bragging or dick-waving when talking about heroic doses.

One time I took about 80 grams of *very* potent blued wet mushrooms - note, 80 gs wet not 80 gs dry - blended up with ice and orange juice. The drink was this nasty gray color and was full of bubbles, and there was a LOT of it in order to try to dilute the taste. I would guesstimate probably 32 ounces of liquid - that's a lot to drink all at once. Anyway I got it down and a friend drove me to a park I like to go to. Stuff started to get extremely strange on the way there, as the pattern of dots on the upholstery in his back seat started swimming around and seemed to be making words that streamed from right to left, like those LED (LCD?) signs you see in airports and stuff, with the moving words. Also the strangest thing that ever happened to me on a trip happened on the way to the park - I looked out the car window at the clouds and this one cloud honest to God turned into a Sphinx - like in Egypt - and was smiling at me :-) That was hilarious. The drive there seemed to last for a number of hours, though it was only about an hour. Once there, we found a good comfortable place to sit under a tree at this bench. Everywhere I looked, all the plants and trees were just changing very rapidly. Sometimes they seemed to age years in minutes, sometimes they just moved and ebbed like visuals you might normally get. I had never before or since gotten visuals this intense in the very wide open outdoors, though.

Time dilated a LOT more than normal - at one point I lapsed into one of those deepening spirals of thoughts and I suddenly snapped out of it and asked my friend, "When was the last time I said something verbally to you?" and his reply, "Less than a minute" pretty much rocked me.

Needless to say I don't remember a whole lot of my thoughts from the trip, I was just on some other planet. I couldn't even put words in a sentence together and if my friend asked me a question I had to have him repeat it many times just to figure out what he was asking. It was like by the fourth or fifth word I had completely forgotten how the sentence began. I had heavy audio hallucinations too, which I usually don't get and in fact never have before or since. Some things (not most though) that I heard in the park echoed in my head for a while. Everything was very beautiful, and I got the distinct impression that the trees and the plants were trying to talk to me. I often get this impression.

I absolutely forgot the normal world, too, which was a first. At one point he asked me a question (I like to have him ask me stuff during trips to elicit some interesting thought) about what I thought about my normal life, going to work and mowing the lawn, and I told him immediately, "I don't remember that life at all" and I couldn't. Not till I was coming down did I suddenly remember that I had a job and owned a house. It was like this moment here in the park was the only existence I had EVER had.
Probably the most unusual part came near the end - my friend stood up and said it was time to leave. I was definitely coming down but was still way up there, and found to my concern (not fear though) that I had absolutely forgotten how to walk. I let him know this and he tried to explain it to me, and demonstrated with a few steps. I just simply could *not* figure out how to walk. It had something to do with energy - it was like I couldn't imagine how much energy and momentum that I had to create to walk. It didn't seem possible. I resigned myself to never walking again. Finally, though, after a full 2 minutes or so of his trying to show me how to walk, I figured I could probably just fake it, so I got up and walked with him. We left pretty much without event, except that everywhere I looked everything was changing very fast and it was a lot harder than sitting watching it happen. I kept stopping and turning around, for some reason which I can't explain now - it somehow kept amazing me that we were travelling across distances. Finally we got to the car - it took me quite a while and a struggle to figure out how to duck down and get in (all this while a few little old ladies were just watching me) but finally I did, and the drive home was pretty uneventful as I descended rapidly.

All in all, an extremely interesting day, but I don't intend to ever do that again. High doses can be interesting, but it is literally impossible to bring anything back. You can record yourself or write stuff down, but even so you still can't later remember anything that you meant. This was definitely a beyond-level-5.

You have all forgotten the important point here..

When you hit a level 5 trip, you have lost connection with reality..if you have lost connection with reality, there is no more, you cannot go further..

Or at least thats how it works in my books..correct me if wrong ;)

If you are going by the trip level scale used in the FAQ on this site...then you CAN'T go beyond level 5. Level 5 is the total loss of ego and reality.

Yeah but don't you reckon that whole level thing is pretty worthless?

It seems totally artificial to define 5 arbitary levels. I could define 3 or 300 depending on how I look at things.

Well of course the definition of levels is arbitrary. But that doesn't mean it's not usefull.

All I was saying is that if we are going by the 1-2-3-4-5 level scale I usually see, there is no point in asking "what's beyond level 5?" because, measured by the scale there is nothing beyond level 5.

It would be the same thing as taking the Kelvin temperature scale and asking "well what is colder than 0 degrees?". There's no point in asking, because by definition of the scale you are using, there isn't anything colder than 0.

I know what people are trying to ask. They want to know how far a trip can go. What's the limit? All I'm saying is that you can't ask what's beyond level 5 on a scale that ends at level 5 and where level 5 is defined as the furthest you can go.

The trip scale is really used for explaining to people the intesity of a trip, rather than written in stone indications of tripping experiences. I've had some trips where they we're only 2-3 visually but easilyt 4 mentally.

I wasn't arguing that. Look at the description of Level 5:

Level 5: Total loss of visual connection with reality. The senses cease to function in the normal way. Total loss of ego. Merging with space, other objects or the universe. The loss of reality becomes so severe that it defies explanation. The earlier levels are relatively easy to explain in terms of measureable changes in perception and thought patterns. This level is different in that the actual universe within which things are normally perceived, ceases to exist! Satori enlightenment (and other such labels) (**).

Maybe it's just me...but the only way you could go further than that is to die. THE ULTIMATE TRIP!

200 wet grams of subaeruginosa.
that was insane. The only thing I distinctly remember was just the nothing in me. The nothingness. The entire space, time, reality, ceasing to exist. I was nothing and never was anything. Never to be, never have been... and neither has anything else except this one floating atom telling all to nothing that never was.
I can't really say 'beyond level 5', maybe at the very TOP of level 5 :wink:

and this indescribable feeling like I had shat myself, is what made it a bad trip, but it was good in the end, if that makes sense

I'm not accustomed to the whole level description.But which I would like to know more about.

I have tripped for like fourteen days before and during that time I had a quarter pounds for friends and personal that lasted like a month or so. I can honestly say that it took me a month or so afterwards to get back to "normal". And some moments of serious  depression came along with that journey back to "normal" as well.

Cantara I have also seen the cloud folk. Its funny that you mentioned Egyptian. Back about 15 years ago I lived at a "hippie"house and we tripped like nobody's business. What a blessed experience that was. But I also took a ten year break.LOL
But yeah back in those days I used to always see cloud folk that usually had Egyptian head dresses and some would be riding in ships and would have large vase's that they would pour out over the ships side.And others rode horses and other creatures and carried flags or large crest like objects mounted on poles.And in the early mornings right as the sun came up a huge being that would have been at least a hundred of feet tall walked with the sunrise."He" carried a pouch and a telescopic stick of sorts. As it waked with the sunrise it would extend its right arm and the stick would telescope out to a certain location and then retract back and he would then place it within the pouch. He even got me one day. It was kewl!

As for tripping into another realm.
That was last years Bonnaroo experience.
To make short. I was in three distinct worlds. Each had its own iconic foundation of beliefs yet each complimented the other. I seemed to  mainly be a observer and each time I tried to say my opinion or interact on that level I was transported to one of the other levels were my action I first did was something different than what I intended yet similar to the previous intention.What a amazing journey.The last memory I had was slowly working my way back into this realm and then once I said to myself I was back I was rushed by three or four medics and woke up two days later in my van with a ball of cotton and tape on my arm. I left there within a few hours after waking :smile:
But I do look forward to going back this year and chatting with the medics as to what my behavior was. I hope they have the same people there this year!

I think...

- If you think you have had a level 5, but think you could go further : then you havnt had a level 5.

Maybe a 4, maybe a 4 that some-times foated in and out of a 5.
But, once you lose a visual connection to reality, and concepts of self / time / thought / language / meaning all fall apart leaving you with nothing but 'being' - and not even being able to comprhehend that, whats past that?
