Can mushrooms answer specific questions?
    #4022687 - 04/06/05 07:59 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I would really like to know this because I worry that maybe mushrooms really have taught me about all they can. I mean, when I trip I feel confident about basic morality issues, you know, the stuff Jesus preached....but then when I ask specific questions about if I should get involved with this friend on this project, if I'm destined to do that, you know...the answer is almost always positive, encouraging me that I should, but it never turns out right after the trip... so maybe you just can't trust mushrooms to answer any real questions, I don't know... Have any of you ever tried eating magic mushrooms?

General Questions:
Lord should I forgive people?
What is the nature of time?
Am I on the right job path?

Specific Questions:
What should I do about that kid who ripped me off last weekend?
Is it the right time to find a new place?
Should I get into the world of Adult Entertainment?

Dunno, beyond asking how the substrate is, and how the mycelium's doing...

Remeber, it isn't the mushroom directly influencing any of the ideas that are spawned... they all are a part of the individual, the mushroom just helps put things into perspective and/or rearrange them.

Mushrooms can't do that anymore then 2 40's of Ol' E can help create a revolutionary invention.

Well that's your position.

Terence McKenna says that when you eat mushrooms you open a channel to extraterrestrial intelligence, or something like that.

Me, I don't know who's right, trying to figure it out.

I don't think mushrooms are good for personal guestions in general. Although at times...

Try LSD and get some tarot cards. :grin:

That doesn't mean the extratrestrials will tell you if you should marry Suzy.  :mushroom2:

They'll tell you whatever they want on a committed dose. I've never been able to formulate a question until after I started to come down.  :mushroom2:

Synthesized hallucinogens can produce the same effects without any "essence" of life imbued into them. (without being alive)

I think it just puts your mind in an altered state, you can tell me your warping through time and talking to Ramtha while your on it... I'll believe you provided you can give me proof.

2)  It flows, like time and nature....  :wink:

3)  If you are happy with what you are doing in life....
.
4)  Talk to him....  If you are 100% SURE he ripped you off, tell him you ar not mad(if you aren't), and ask him why he did it....
.
5)  If you feel it is the "right time" to move, then yes....
.
6)  If it makes you happy to entertain adults, be happy....

I definetly think they can,they have helped me make decisions before,and answered questions,more then that though they make you ask alot of questions,its up to you to take the questions back to reality and find the truth.
