Eye contact while tripping. Evidence of a soul?
    #868163 - 09/07/02 03:57 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Dig..........

You're tripping.

You stare into the eyes of another person who is also tripping, or you stare at yourself in the mirror, and your trip becomes more intense.

I know i'm not the only one. When i'm tripping with someone, and I stare them in the eyes it 'brings me back up". It's as if I just took more acid or what have you. This is a FACT. I really start to get higher from eye contact.

My question is, is this evidence of a soul? The eyes are supposed to be the "window to the soul", so it's interesting that a person's eyes are the only thing that brings you back up.

It's as if while on acid or whatever, you're more in touch with your soul, and when you look into someone's eyes, you're diving deeper into the soul of all life.

What do you think?

You believe that when a trip becomes more intense because of eye contact with another tripping person, that that's evidence of a soul?

Anyone else? Have I made this clear enough for everyone to understand? It's a little hard to explain.

Yes, I think that eyes are directly associated with the soul / spirit. You can tell alot by looking into someone's eyes....

i think you're very wrong.

A) you can't tell ANYTHING about a persons "soul" by looking at thier eyeballs. you can tell alot about what a person is thinking/feeling by looking at thier eyeballs.

B) the eyes are one of the most communicative body parts. eye contact is biologically emotional, so it's not surprising that you "got higher" when you looked into the persons eyes.

C) if proving the existence of the soul were that easy don't you think someone smarter than you would have done it by now? hmm?

I agree...
And I also think what a person is thinking/feeling can be a direct expression of the spirit or "soul".  :blush:

And I never said it proved anything... I said that is what I thought.

Not even close. What you are "reading" is the expressive facial muscles. Of course, here on the Shroomery, everything pedantic MUST have some mystical explanation.

...and "expressive facial muscles" are often associated with specific emotional states.

every time i look into someones eyes while trippin there face turns into mine, i dont particularly enjoy this since it gives me feeling of claustraphobia, i even get this now with less than 3 grams, this occurs all during my peak. there eye's appear to be the window to the soul, not their individuated soul. its the energies that i see floating around them that tells me how they are feeling, and sometimes it goes further with me seeing the path that that particular soul is walking.

I'm not sure if i mentioned this earlier but last time i tripped i sawall the colors of the spectrum or prism that enable us to see with transparent vision, they rotated like a disco ball around me, very trippy.

I disagree in part. Some of the data picked up is due to the facial muscles but some of it is from the eyes and the muscles immediately surrounding them. Gawd I love it when you get precise! Neurolingistic programming has a section on eye information which is very interesting. With it you can tell all sorts of things about people. You know what I am talking about because you have that gift.

Cheers,

No, i'm talking about looking directly into someones pupils. It doesn't make me trip harder when I look at their face. I'm talking specifically about the pupils.

Of course, here on the Shroomery, everything
pedantic MUST have some mystical explanation.

[Learyfan talking to Swami in a calm tone]
Now Swami, I don't want to change the subject here, and/or turn this into an arguement, but this is what people mean when they accuse you of being less than nice. First of all, this is the "Spirituality & Philosophy" forum. You're supposed to know that we're going to talk about things like this before you get here. Second, a comment like this may be interpreted as condescending, and personally insulting.

I am not interested in feelings, but in truth. I don't find misleading information to be somehow more comforting.

Unlike most people here, I don't just flap my gums. As per usual, I will back up my position with cold hard cash. I will wager that one person cannot tell what another person is thinking strictly by looking into their pupils without seeing their face or eye muscles.

Of course, this Swami Eye Contact Challenge will meet the same fate as the:

Telepathy Challenge
Telekinesis Challenge
Clairvoyant Challenge
"My Dog Knows When I am Tripping" Challenge
The "End of the World in 2012" Challenge
"The 10% of Brain Usage" Challenge

Funny how so many here balk when a Propagandist Myth is presented as fact, but hold tight to their own false myths.

Which do you choose: Truth or Social Acceptance?

Yes, as anything can be.

The picture?  :blush:

Thanks, now I need to go to confession.

I understood what you meant and I think it has validity.

Can't you try to be a little more polite when presenting your truth? Please?

I don't find misleading information to be somehow more comforting.
My opinion isn't meant to mislead anyone. I was just asking everyone what they thought about this thing.

I will
wager that one person cannot tell what another person is thinking strictly by looking into their pupils without seeing their
face or eye muscles.

This thread is not about telepathy Swami. This thread is about tripping, and staring into the pupils of a fellow tripper(or yourself), and having your trip become more intense as a result. True story: I was tripping on acid with my friends, and everything was going fine. Then we noticed that when we stared at each other in the pupils and we started seeing WAY more visuals. Later in the evening as the trip began to wear down, we stared at each other again, and it was like we had taken another hit for a little bit.

Point is, there's something intangible in a persons pupils that somehow grants you access to deeper levels of the tripping experience in my opinion.

Or maybe you and your friend hold a similar perspective on the whole "eye is the window to the soul" thing and when you both concentrated on eachother's eyes, it triggered a similar neurological cascade in each of your skulls.


Of course, this is all a lie... we all know elves were behind the phenomenon...
