Inside the mind of someone on acid

So I’ve always been fascinated by what goes on in someones mind when they are under the influence of mind altering substances such as weed, LSD and mushrooms (the trippy drugs). Being a bit of a weed smoker, I’m used to how my perceptions change but I’m also aware that other peoples perceptions under the influence of weed can differ drastically from mine. As for acid and mushrooms, honestly, I’m a bit scared to try, so the idea of how those drugs affect peoples perspective has always been something of a mystery and a curiosity.

I did try this herbal version of acid once (it was supposed to contain LSA, the precursor to LSD) and even on a super low dosage I wound up not being able to handle it and having a horrible time. For those people who can handle such intensity I have nothing but admiration for being able to push the frontiers of mind exploration (god I must sound like the most massive hippy), but I don’t know that it’s for me.

Anyway, if you’re like me and are curious but don’t really want to actually do acid check out this article. Back in the day, the US government did tests with acid (to see how it worked and whether they could weaponize it) and this one particular test involved simply giving a dose to an artist, and getting him to draw while under the influence. The result? Such cool drawings. enjoy 😀

that's meant to be a face by the way

Mind blowing parkour

I know it’s been ages since I updated, but I’ve been super busy doing things like 11 shifts in a row without a day off and having a life (socializing with other homo sapiens) and between that and sleep I haven’t felt very motivated to do much writing. Anyway recently I came across some of the most incredible parkour videos I have ever seen. This guy Damien Walters is some sort of super human the way he jumps about. I’m so jealous.
