Enter: So let's have a calm walk thru the field and find out about you. Let's start with what you've been up to with you life in the past year or so.
Adamist:

Enter: Let's go back to school days. We'll start with somewhere around 9th grade. What was an average day at school like? Were you popular or quiet? Kind or condescending? All "A's" or all "F's"?

"Or so" being key here...
Time has lost most of it's meaning to me ever since my fall from innocence, which was when I was 14 or so...
One year ago I think I was contemplating a break from Florida, to Indiana, with my good friend thePatient.. who lives in Bloomington, Indiana.
I followed through with this idea, and then some.. hitting the Bonnaroo music festival on the way up, getting lost in Tennessee for a few weeks, and going through all sorts of general madness.
This was a period of intense growth and change for me.
I met many people in my travels who had their various messages from my perspective.
Much of my travels has been documented in pictoral form, and can be viewed on my website (see sig).
After ingesting more chemical substances than at any other time in my life, I decided around July that I needed a break to reflect deeply.  :crazy:
So I lived in Indiana in an RV in the countryside, which I really loved. Away from the bustle of modern-day's society, I concentated on creating music and looking inside myself for meaning.
I'd say the past year has been the Year of Doubt for me...
I question anything that could potentially lead to self-delusion, and my beliefs are relatively few and unfantastic as of now.

Around the 6th grade I became extremely disillusioned with the education system.
Even before my experimentation with drugs, I started to view the system's intent of programming the youth into subserviant, unquestioning robots.
The public educational system in Florida is notoriously lame, and I became extremely apathetic.
Towards 8th grade I was in a state of constant rebellion, getting into trouble, dressing strange... even wearing make-up at one point, I enjoyed upsetting my social status, being labeled a "freak". I was pretty condescending in general, to people I labeled as entrapped in "the box".
Looking back, I was quite immature... but aren't we all, at some point?
As far as my grades... they flucxuated to the extremes. One semester I would get straight A's, the next I would fail every class. In high school in particular I lost total interest, due to expanding my mind with MDMA, LSD, and mushrooms... as well as getting addicted to the MMORPG "Everquest" for a good 6 months. :wink:
I've always been introverted, from the time I was born.
My mother has said that I hardly ever cried as a child, and was always silent around strangers..

Enter: What is a work day like for you as of May 2005?



The last real job I had was working at K-Mart, which I could not withstand for more than a month. Currently I do yardwork for my grandparents when I require funds.. but this is by no means a permanent position.  :tongue2:

Quote:

Enter: The number one positive influence of your life that has helped keep you on an upbeat path is...



Probably music. Artists like John Frusciante, Nick Drake, and Tool have lead me through many a dark night...
I whole-heartedly believe in the power of music.
When you think about it, we are all made of sound.  :crazy:

Quote:

Enter: Have you ever had a quote/unquote "religious" experience as an adult? What happened?



Honestly, most of my experiences occured when I was in the transitional stage of 16-18 years old. (I'm 20 now..)
I admit that most of these experiences occured as the result of some chemical catalyst or another, but I don't think this lessens the 'validity' by much.  :smile:
My first ground-breaking spiritual experience came when I was about 16 years of age and decided to ingest mushrooms with my sister, who is 1 year younger than I.
I completely transcended the constraints of time, first going into a dark, disturbing world of fear and doubt, in which I locked myself in the bathroom and lay in the tub having visions of blood and the Unknown.
Afterwards, when I summoned the courage to emerge, I had the most amazing experience that words are hard pressed to recreate.
Basically I experienced the DNA of the Universe itself.. every single thing that had ever been done, thought, or created was at my disposal. My brain acted as a 'search engine' through this MASSIVE amount of stored information.
I was astounded. Never before had I even suspected such a thing.
During this time, as I sat in the lotus position, I became aware of an intense flaming energy rise up from the base of my spine to the center of my brain.
As this happened I felt the rotating energy field around my body, and as I became aware of it, it increased in speed until it approached the speed of light.
I know this because time slowed down to the point that I entered a state of timelessness.
During this, I was travelling in space, conversing telepathically with various entities... I remember encountering Beethovan specifically.  :grin:
Eventually I drifted far from the Earth, and this is when it really became interesting.
I came upon this planet, a brownish planet of no particular special qualities, until I heard it spoke.  :crazy2:
That's right, it started conveying messages to me. I got the feeling that it was a male energy, and so ancient that it looked upon me as some sort of ANCIENT grandfather looks upon his children.
I felt great connection to this planet, and it showed me visions. It showed the Earth going through an intense period of transformation, such as a pole-shift.
Specifically there were tidal waves. Massive waves that covered large areas. I was shown the possibility that I may escape the destruction, along with a group of people who also were aware of it, unconsciously. I saw myself and this group going to a mountain range and waiting until the transformation was complete, and emerging to re-create a new world, along with other survivors.
And that was the end of my vision.
I have had other experiences as well, but not nearly as profound and powerful as this.

The thing about Shroomism and I, is that in my opinion, we share many similarities... being around him was (and still is) an experience that teaches me alot about myself.
I think that I still have much to learn in this particular area... and he as well, if I may be so bold.  :wink:

Quote:

Enter: Have you ever attended an official Shroomery gathering? Any noteworthy notes to release?



Not any official gatherings, but I have met my share of Shroomerites in my travels.
Prisoner#1, 2Experimental, Jenny, debianlinux, supermarket, and of course Shroomism...
All of these people were interesting in their own way, and I look forward to re-converging in the future.

Enter: The last good book you read was....



"Vurt" by Jeff Noon. Really an amazing piece of fictional art. I highly recommend it to Shroomerties, as it's story revolves around many things that parallel the mushroom experience.

Quote:

Enter: If there is one thing that people incorrectly guess about you before getting to know the facts, it is...



I've had people say I seem 'stuck-up' or condescending...
I have never been rich, or above anyone socially, but I tend to keep to myself, and am wary of people who try to get to know me too quickly... which is probably where the perception originates from. :shrug:
I have been attempting to work on my condescending attitudes, though, by focusing on the truth that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, to quote my personal hero, Bill Hicks.  :sun:

Quote:

Enter: The time period you most appreciate in the history of the world is....



Definately ancient Egypt.
One of the things I do believe in is reincarnation, and I feel a strong connection with this period of human growth.
Along with the Sumerians, the ancient Egyptians deliver our earliest evidence of human thought. The Egyptians were concerned with questions that recycle into later European thought, and still remain unanswered today... questions about being and nonbeing, the meaning of death, the nature of the cosmos and man, the essence of time, etc..
They also used the sytem of astrology, which I find highly interesting.  :crazy:
Egyptian mythology is where Christianity orginates, which most people seem to be ignorant of.
Egyptians also knew the structure of DNA long before it was 'discovered' by Crick in the 20th century.
It takes form as the 'caduceus' symbol, which is still used to this day by modern medicine. Coincidence, huh?  :rolleyes:
Also, Egyptians reveered cats! I have a deep love for cats, I find them fascinating and amazing creatures.
The cat's hunting instincts were honoured by the Egyptians, but so was the cat's gentler side as a warm and loving mother to her kittens.
On a side-note, my cat Spiral, just had a litter of 6 kittens, the night before Mother's Day.  :heart:

Enter: Koolaid or herbal tea?



Herbal tea! Arizona and SOBE are current favorites...

Marriage on my own spiritual terms has already been achieved...
with whom you know as "Ares"..
..Ashley to me.  :smile:

It's been a while since an interview, I thoroughly enjoyed it,.


--------------------
Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

Great interview and great spiritual experience!

No ONE wants to know the ultimate TRUTH, as soon as YOU find IT out, YOU want to forget IT.

You are everything's way of feeling itself.

Very good interview!

Interesting, heh. Meeting Beethoven. He died on my birthday.


--------------------
A plethora of music aspirations control my temptations of future revelations beyond "now". The percussion, and the heart beat of my love and devotion. The rhythm goes beyond, prying into the third eye, releasing the creativity held so far inside. The melodicies, through the out of tune pianos and broken classical guitars...there lies a beauty. A beauty as prevelent as the fire inside. To release these energies is pure ecstacy, to deveop these gifts is sacred. The vocality, so pure as can be, shying away from herself, lies within me. For the underlying serenitity, this is what I live for. I plea for harmony, and nothing more. Music equals love. Creation of love leads to the procreativity of the World, and it's spirals and puddles prevailing.
