What does drugs do for you?
    #3982268 - 03/28/05 11:40 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I was just thinking, "What does it all mean", as humans we are just accumulation of sense-data, sure there is emotion and feeling involved but this is rather fleeting. My question then is, what does drugs do for you? Is it just another way to accumulate sense-data? I mean for people who spend 200$ on weed a month, or people who do shrooms. does this impact the way you see the world? If so then should everyone do mushrooms and weed to see the world in the same way?

We can easily see the world in the same way. One must learn not to indulge in his emotions or play with others, but realize that these emotions and differences are only bounderies that we must all cross in order to connect.

Drugs can be a catalyst to bring someone to a different mind state that could not be reached when sober. Now to realize that the things that are brought to you in the light of confusion are the things that you are forgetting. Say you smoke and you come across something new. You only think it's new because your mind hasn't been touched by this very chemical before. As children we are fully enlightened. As we grow older we lose touch with our childhoods. Now those who smoke 10 times a day only have lost touch with themselves do to a chemical substance.

There are those who have reached these goals of enlightenment with no such chemicals. Addiction is a hard thing to get over, for it is a physical and psycological addiction. One believes that mushrooms brought about enlightenment. But now i realize the mushrooms have only destroyed what i already knew.

Mushrooms can be considered the easiest way to connect with people. In large groups the chemical creates a metaphysical bond between people.

Peace,
Droz

Droz, do you have a thesis? I'm only wondering because I couldn't really tell what you were saying, your message seemed to flop around like a dying fish. Just my opinion, I'm not saying that having a thesis is necessary or anything.

Cyrux :people who spend 200$ on weed a month, or people who do shrooms. does this impact the way you see the world?

well drugs do impact the way you see the world while you're on them. Are you asking whether drugs have a lasting impact which extends beyond the high, maybe to last entire lifetimes? ...to the extent that we are made of memories (or in your words as humans we are just accumulation of sense-data), then all our experiences, sober and high alike, make us who we are.

If so then should everyone do mushrooms and weed to see the world in the same way?

do you think so? is that why you ask? me I think no.

What I want to know is: who can take care of their "jones" for only $200 a month?

Can't believe an old hand like yourself is unfamiliar with the well-worn "dying fish" hypothesis!  :rolleyes:

with salvia $200 is well more than a year's issue.

anyway, this is not a thing for everyone, not even a thing for a family - something for a personal quest.

if it makes no sense to you it wont.

personal quest and personal freedom - both are very important rights.
we should be allowed to take it or leave it. rights are not requirements. free will - remember?

I'd say! You forgot to capitalize "apparently". Also, you should have used a comma after "apparently". Your usage of "which" is questionable; the word "that" seems more preferable. :lol:

It awakes the child inside me, well most of the time just a small part of the child consciousness. I take cannabinoids just to relax and socialize but the use entheogens makes me see the world as a 8 year old boy, much less psychic barriers, and reality becomes much more genuine :wink:

My drugs do everything for me. I stay at home and hang out on the Shroomery while they are off working and grocery shopping.

"Hey drugs! Go wash and wax my car now - and make it spotless!"
