Plato's Allegory of the Cave/Metaphor for a Trip or developed awareness
    #8801029 - 08/20/08 03:19 PM (9 years, 11 months ago)

Wasn't sure if I should post this here or the Philosophical forum but I think it works either way...




I use this as a way to describe acid to my friends.  I told them the Sun, the light, is LSD, and people trip and see things in a different light.  Once the effects wear off, they can come back down to the 'cave' with distorted perceptions and others will view them as having viewed a fake reality by seeing the sun.

You know the feeling of consciousness expansion in your brain that you get when you are in a really deep conversation with others about abstract topics?  I get that feeling when I watch this and think about it for a little bit.  Just trying to share the wealth  :sunny:

I enjoyed that... It was a brilliant analogy :smile:.
