Are you a psychonaut?

spitfire: it's the most common defense mechanism that every geek has. drinking and smoking eliminates in part this defense system...

What about creating an anonymous account for such questions ?

what about the internet is for lies and not to be used as evidence by any legal institution. you are completely safe unless you where chatting to an FBI-agent or something.

also, to get high, i mix aborted foetusses and burrowing owls in the blender and inject the juice in my eyeballs and occasionally i snort smached choco pops.

I was completely fucked on yellow bentines when I made this http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=26659.
@ whynot2000 :
You are right about the legal point, only issue is that I have to take other aspect into consideration as well if I talk on a public forum without any editing possibilities. Things like having to see certain statements pop up everytime someone googles the handle under which you make music, from here on out till the end of days.

I agree with you on this point, and I respect your views. But to say that one could match the effects of strong psychoactive drugs like LSD without 1) years of practice in meditation, 2)being a natural talent or 3)falling asleep and dreaming is just not true. There is a difference between knowing that your eyes in combination with your brain create a 3d world view, and watching the walls around crumble to dust without the building collapsing.

Also you wrote that all drugs is expensive. LSD sells for about 2-5 euros and lasts about 6-8 hours.

    the point is easy enough

    but I agree to a point actually. With all these wonderful drugs freely avaible everywhere on the planet, why waste time with booze and cigarettes?.

    Quote:
    As far as I can tell people only do it because they are sheep. All booze tastes horrible, so do cigarettes.


    so does McD and Burger king, taste never prevented anyone from filling their face with foul tasting chemical waste for that short boost of "feel-good-, and it has got nothing to do wth peer pressure.

    or drugged up to her eyeballs raver girl here??

    I am shallow as the ground we tread on, i would rather end up with a gorgeous blonde with the intelligence of a dog, than end up with a dog wearing lipstick even if she can count to 10 and beyond. thats just me though, and drugs are certainly a way to that goal, especially rohypnol.

    get a new dealer, you are being ripped off there...

    get a new dealer, you are obviously being ripped off here.

    as for the question at hand, no I never touched drugs of any kind.

    guybrush: 1, ana and electroglide are the most interesting ones synesthetically research speaking me thinks. maybe also agna, and toptiny redexit. and some of the kooi colaborations i guess. but like i said dont expect much from it, they were just experiments considering the relation between colors / visual motion and the states of mind that ambient sounds drive you into. some of them folly with contrasts aswell.

    I still have the curiosity but never did it. I think. Once Sotsoft send me with the post what he thought was some kind of mushroom and I ate it but I was scared for many reasons but at the end nothing happened. And I asked im if it wasn't enough and he told me I had to imagine that I was under the influence. But I don't know what this was that I ate. It was sure a mushroom but was it from the ones?

    I never understood smoking because I tried a little and I didn't noticed effects. The effects are not strong as alcohol. At the beginning I couldn't understand alcohol too. Because I didn't liked it's taste. I prefered to drink fanta orange. But then I had seen that if I drank more of this think (it started with ouzo) there was that state. And I understood the reason for alcohol. But with smoking, do I have to smoke a lot to get some kind of feeling? I stop on the first half cigarrete because I can't inhale this thing without burning.

    Also, one day I was in the sea floating in a air mattress and my head done close to the sinuisodial wave patterns and the light specular was doing some lighted unique curves because of the movement. I can't explain how it looked. It was ok. But for some moment I thought it was something unique like the unique things you are supposed to see when you are under drugs. Although I have never been under drugs I wondered if this would be something similiar to watch there. And I thought maybe if someone takes drugs he sees something that looks unique and he thinks it's a unique experience but maybe it's elsewhere on the world without drugs, although you need practice to watch the world with different eyes and it's one in a thousand that I have a weird view of the world that is different with the same eyes, yet later I can't reproduce the exact experience and I am not sure what caused it.

    I was also brave enough to open another thread in the past on pouet and ask someone in the greek army who came to educate soldiers about the dangers of drugs, I asked him if hallucinogenics have some positive visual effects and of course he said no even if he might have lied.

    And something I remembered. Not exactly drugs but, someone told me somewhere in caves in Greece, some cave the ancients were thinking it has unique properties. They made some kind of ceremony enlightment mystery there. They took a young man and walked together into a dark cave far down the earth. They left him there for a whole day (or three days?) I think. It was far far down and there was no light, so he had to wait there lying down, there was no light to escape from there. They came back and took him the other day. The guy who told me this story said, because it's total darkness the brain creates stuff alone, so that person has seen first positive stuff, random stuff and then he had faced his worst inner nightmares ever, like a true story in front of him. He told me "You will shit bricks!!!". I somehow am scared to think about but somehow I am tempted to try this one day..

    forget about drugs. there are better illegal dopings. have you tried raping a fugitive pregnant underage girl while coding a demo? that's much better than drugs!
