Acid burn etched in my brain...
    #871204 - 09/09/02 07:01 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

When I used to dose, I formed sort of strict beliefs in my head of how the world (or my world) was supposed to be.. I feel these beliefs have been following me through the years hindering my progress of learning/developing mentally and socially.. I have disturbing preconceptions of people/situations that my logic tells me is unreasonable. This is something I know I can overcome with some practice.

Any thoughts?

What kind of preconceptions? Would you call them "intuitive" feelings?

the thing about psychedelics being mind openers is that yes, they are mind expanding, but at the same time i think they make harder walls just further out. i don't know if that's gonna make sense to anyone, but if you look at it like your mind is a box, you take LSD (for instance) and the box gets bigger, but the walls get harder. i think the goal should be to break down the walls completely. maybe this end result is the ego loss from high doses, but with low doses you just get a bigger picture but it's harder to break through those precepts that you've just made for yourself...

I agree, but I think the problem arises when you try to reconstruct yourself after the trip. Psychedelics dissolve all the walls while you're under the influence, but you need walls to survive in everyday life. So when it comes time to build up your walls again, you build them up with such certainty (because you think you've just figured out the universe) that they become impermeable. You must realize that although it may seem like you've got everything figured out, this is still just a small piece to the puzzle. Your walls must always be translucent and shifting, otherwise drugs have done you no good.

Yea, thanks dudes, you put my thoughts into a clear mental picture for me

"the brain-wall theory"
I think thats a very strong point to emphasize to trippers who think they 'know it all'. 

this can easily lead to much MUCH confusion and unhappiness, especially if you have a strong will to really learn things like me, and seem to can't trust your own brain. coupled with some hefty depression, will drive you nearly insane! fuck!

heh heh.  :tongue:
