Last night wrote a quick computer program to flash my computer screen at a controlled rate. Also synchronized with the flashing was a click sound from the speakers. I put my computer monitor on the floor and pointed it at the ceiling. So I had blue flashes of light at 4.5 Hz and clicks at the same rate. Then I turned off all the lights and lyed down and stared at the ceiling. I went into a trance like state for about two hours. I felt I was floating in a completely white space and there were robots flying around which looked like the squidies from the matrix. Plus lots more stuff. The next day I had a really sore neck.
Searching around on erowid.com, I read a fantastic trip report about a guy who spent a great deal of time doing yoga and had an EXTREMELY profound experience. I've read others that have to do with dance as well. Search it up over there.
I feel that many people put too much focus into the mental aspect of tripping...loss of ego, improving yourself, losing fear, self-analyzing, etc.
Mental activity is something our mind/soul is capable of without a body. We have this body, during this life, for a reason. The shrooms will be VERY happy with you if you spend time stretching, dancing, massaging, or doing whatever it is you do to be in touch with your body.
I say definately spend a trip doing your tai chi. It will heighten the spirituality of the trip.
Breathing exercises effects my trip greatly, especially during points of hypertension. Chi, is very noticable, the buzzing at the fingertips makes the mind feel somewhat tranquil. Probably cause of the CO2 concentrations. There is also stretching and releasing gas pockets during tripping. I kind of get the idea that the nitrogen in ones body gives the ability for the mind to reconstitute for a short amount of time on ethneogens. This is out of experience, stretching your back is great for your trip. Or just breath in hands in, breath out, push out.
