What shrooms really are
    #602678 - 04/08/02 11:18 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

I think shrooms might be the key to spirits. When you eat the shrooms, the spirits within them are allowed consciousness through you, and they show you the story of their life. If someone had a bad life or horrible death, then you might get a bad trip. Overcoming this is realizing that this life isn't what your life is, so the worry will go away. Ever wonder why its hard to remember or organize your thoughts while on mushrooms? It's because the spirits are unloading the information they learned while alive, in hopes of you learning more than they did, thus evolution and new technologies.

wow! what an amazing hypothesis!!
maybe it is sooo right one could apply it to any other drug in the universe.

Darlene: "Oh come now, I don't look anything like James Brown."
Ted: "Hey kids, who does your mom look like in the morning?"
Kids... in unison: "James Brown!"
Darlene, "All right, thats enough... It's poison spaghetti for dinner tonight."

When you eat the shrooms, the spirits within them are allowed consciousness through you, and they show you the story of their life.

This sounds amazingly like the superstition found in the 15th century when people thought that disease was due to bad spirits not microorganisms. Somehow I thought that we had progressed.

If there was anything remotely valid about your statement, then artificially created psilocybin (it never lived) would give a qualitatively different trip than mushrooms. As this is not the case, your hypothesis has no substance whatsoever.

The proof is in the pudding.

Lets try:

I smoke some weed. I hear no voices, no cloudy thoughts, just nice warm feelings all over and and nice big smile on my face. No intense experience, spiritual feelings, or enlightenment.

I drink some alcohol. I stumble around, laughing at how drunk I am. I feel a nice weird feeling in my legs and stomach. Again, no voices, insight, or spiritual connection.

I smoke some opium. I feel a nice feeling all over. AGAIN, no spirtual feelings or insight.


I eat some shrooms.

I get a nervous feeling all over. I start to yawn. Suddenly, everything appears different, as if new. Increased thoughts and I start to hear voices. Eventually, I feel like a totally different person, as if I am experiencing life through someone else's eyes. I feel peace and one with myself, the universe, and full of knowledge. I have found no drug that will induce this. Not even LSD. LSD isn't as spiritual, and I still feel like I'm me. While on shrooms, its as if someone else is inside with me, telling me how to live and the knowledge they have been given.

Of course, there are many different drugs out there and there are many different experiences, but there are also many unknown things that people will never know because it is beyond their reasoning.


Hey, it could happen.

Terence McKenna said that the mushroom told him that it was not of this planet.
I haven't asked the mushroom yet, so I can't verify.

No, you don't get hallucinations on mushrooms. I certainly never have. A hallucination is a false perception of reality. When i am on mushrooms I am always perfectly aware what reality is.

I eat some shrooms. I have a total psychotic breakdown. I swim in broken glass and walk naked into traffic after punching out my best friend and saying hurtful things that destroy a precious relationship (all from actual trip reports).

Now what does that signify?

that swimming in broken glass report is about the wildest ive read, you mean the guy who smashed his fishtank into the bathtub, stripped off and got in?

sherlock - i'm glad you are getting something from shrooms, may i be so bold as to suggest you read some more about it, lots of great books and websites out there.
here and there you will find sentences, comments or maybe pictures that will click for you and help you understand more about who you are and what you experience.

Hang on Lal, is it a hallucination if you're aware it's a hallucination?

I've never thought something was there that wasn't, i've always been aware it was the effects on my brain of psilocybin. It's something all the native americans always say about Peyote - that they never have hallucinations.

I already had thought about it Lal. I'm still waiting for you to contradict it.

When you watch a film and see Arnie flying through space do you think it's really happening? Is that a hallucination? Or do you just think "I'm watching a film"? When you see things on mushrooms do you think "this is really happening"?

lol.
i dont have to contradict it, you did that for me

"is it a hallucination if you're aware it's a hallucination?"

if you are aware that its a hallucination, then you have just identified it as one.
how could it not be a hallucination after becoming aware that it is one?!
lol

very amusing, i think taking shrooms is very similar to a dream ( astral projection ) in the sense of their opposing similarities, a dream ( astral projection ) seems very long when in fact it is very short in the physical demension, while a mushrooms trip in the physical demension can seem like an eternity when in fact only a few hours have passed in the physical demension, wait, a mushrooms trip is some weird astral projection.

Nah, i was only using your terminology "hallucination" because you seemed unable to understand the point.

As i said in the earlier post, A hallucination is a false perception of reality. Seeing as i am aware that i am seeing these things because my brain is under the influence of psilocybin, then it isn't a hallucination. My perception of reality is perfectly accurate. Do you understand?

The mushroom lives and dies in your mind.

Is your mind a heaven or a hell?
