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

    … Syd Barrett

    There are many stories about Barrett’s bizarre and intermittently psychotic behaviour — some are known to be true. According to Roger Waters, Barrett came into what was to be their last practice session with a new song he had dubbed “Have You Got It, Yet?”. The song seemed simple enough when he first presented it to his bandmates, but it soon became impossibly difficult to learn and they eventually realized that while they were practising it, Barrett kept changing the arrangement. He would then play it again, with the arbitrary changes, and sing “Have you got it yet?”. Eventually they realized they never would and that they were simply bearing the brunt of Barrett’s idiosyncratic sense of humour.

    I love that haha.
