Reading while tripping
    #4369861 - 07/04/05 06:16 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I've found that while mushrooms make you think a hell of a lot, they seem to really do a number on my patience.

Does anyone know of a good dosage that would still allow me to read, so I can really get the gears turning without losing interest?

to be honest i would smoke and read cause of the whole patience thing. just read before hand or on the come up and think about what you read while tripping.

I agree that smoking and reading would probably be much more integrable and worthwhile at that.  :thumbup:

i can smoke and read.. but not very well, id much rather trip and get some reading done. like say a 1 gram dose.. because im a slow reader on pot. The other day on my trip, i was getting so stressed out about the things i needed to get done.. like paperwork for college and shit.. and it was turning things sour.. so i drove home and did the shit i needed to do.. took a little longer than it should have, but it made me feel alot better.. i love how shrooms make you get your priorities in order.

I figured the whole thing with not being able to focus on the words while reading had something to do with the visuals and the fact that words will blend into the paper and screw around.

Is it really just that you cant focus on the words while on shrooms, or will a very low dose still work?

its very neat. last night i did psilocybin and got a desired effect for the first time in three tries. i picked up fear and loathing in las vegus about an hour and a half in. i found i could really relate to Thompson's relevancy's and the syntax of the wording. it was impossible to follow, but satisfying and worthwhile. my only gripe was esp with that book was, the movie, i was constantly trying to relate it to the movie, and i just wanted to here his story for the first time, and spend my time on what was being said and not, how is this part shown on film. anyways, if you are reading it for the 'what the novel says' then IMO forget about it, if you want to read for no reason at all, it can be pretty positive.

I tried to read a news paper once..... But when I got past the first word all the letters started to morph and breath. It didn't work to well.

Reading some poetry on a low dose of shrooms can be cool. I'd recommend Elizabeth Bishop, she has a few poems that are written from the perspectives of various animals like a mouse and a frog which are very trippy.

Of course, James Joyce's Ulysses is the trippiest book ever and I have read through it many times while on various drugs. I like to just open it to whatever page and start reading...the language is more important than the plot with that one. I mean, its a 700 page book which takes place all in one day; that's exactly what tripping is like for me...every breath, drop of water or anything else suddenly becomes worthy of a ten page monologue.
