do you think it's plausible that i could have tanked my heartrate for a few seconds on dmt? i had genuine and verified highly precise control over urination and tear ducts. and i felt that i stopped my heart briefly, but also that sounds stupid as fuck
noteworthy: also on a bunch of opiates and some dissociatives.

Ignoring the people who took time out of their day to argue on the internet the answer to your question is we just don't know. If you truly believe with 100% confidence that DMT is the reason you can control your heartbeat than I'd take it to a laboratory setting where reliable results can be recorded and replicated. Who knows maybe it's something that dmt does to certain people. Acting as though nothing is possible unless backed by current scientific knowledge is the exact opposite of what science is about. Science is observing, recording, and repeating in the hopes of finding something new. As far as we know DMT can't do something like what you've described but who knows you could have something (or not).

8:30am Tuesday the 8th of august, 2017, i had taken nothing, and was on nothing, i just finished riding a bicycle i pay the government $5 a month to use, i took the bus to my university campus which is provided free for students travelling between the gardens point and kevlin grove campuses.

8:45am i stumbled off of the bus having just thanked the driver for driving me to uni, as i hopped out, wearing semi uncomfy boots because my holes have shoes in them i stumpled past this tree, it had sap pouring out of it, i bent down and almost touched it till i realised, that, thats a wound for the tree, that trees have blood and bleed too, do trees also feel? do plants have feelings? if a tree has blood and aims to cure itself does it too have conciousness? i once had this idea that whenever you do ayahuasca you're actually talking to the very tree that it came from, which is also something similar when i was on mushrooms, when i grew them myself, the experience felt oddly familiar and home like, but when i ate mushrooms from the wild they felt wild and out there, something totally new, if we consume mushrooms that are grown on mass are we contributing to slavery of the mushrooms?

8:55am i decided to leave the tree to its own business, not touching its sap, as i walked away the sun glistened on the sap almost like the tree was winking or thanking me for my time, i began smiling really much so.

It was a cool trip.

heres a few helpful pointers:
>know the general looks of psilocybes i.e. gills,color,bruising,stems,spore color and shape
>learn to spore print
> most psilocybes have a blackish to purple/brown spore print
>most psilocybes will bruise blue upon picking them or flicking them gently
>you can get spores online legally and grow your own (illegally of course)
>amanitin,coprycin,orellanine are all real dangers of ingesting wild mushrooms two of the three which will lead to almost guaranteed death over the course of anywhere to a week to three months

from the photos its hard to tell, doesnt look like one of the most common contaminants, but unless you used a still air box and a good amount of isoprop id say your jars were fucked. but i dont see a dry vermiculite layer and i personally have had mycellium in jars that turnt fluffy as in the pic, so i dunno. by now youll have tossed them or theyre a bit old anyways

if said friend gives you another fully colonised jar you could prepare a liquid innoculant by taking a few pieces of mycellium and shake that in sterilized water to produce a slurry with which you can inject other brf jars instead of fruiting and then preparing a spore syringe. you could also prepare agar plates to clone tissue but thatd require a pressure cooker.

tl,dr build a still air box, watch roger rabbits video series and read the tutorials on "getting started" that the shroomery offers.

But seriously, morning if I can help it. Just a lot of well-rested energy to put towards a trip makes it better, IME. I'm not a huge fan of skipping nights of sleep too often to begin with, so being able to trip all day and crash at night is a big plus to me.

I usually prefer night tripping because I feel like the drugs hit me harder. I also enjoy the vibe of night time. Increased darkness also means better visuals, and a mixing of open and closed eye visuals to allow intense, uninterrupted oev's.

Typically starting right when it's getting dark out or right after it has gotten dark out is when I enjoy tripping most. It's a very comfortable time that either leads to some good inward thinking or an adventurous night with others (or in a case like this, tripping on psychedelics or dissociatives). Tripping during other times of the day is also fine, but this one just feels the most "right" any time I think about it.

on a 100ug trip I saw the world in front of my eyes get replaced with a shallow replica amongst infinite
instantaneously I had lost all connection to the world around me
I get back to my house from the park across the road with four friends - for the past few hours I found myself in catatonic/meditative states that I've grown comfortable with and this seems to trigger an awful amount of discomfort amongst them
they sit uncomfortably on my bed and feel like watching a film, I put on samsara
the opening causes the girl who was possible gf material - she was interested in me but I was apathetic yet open minded to the chance of understanding someone else - to wig out and retreat downstairs

I sat down in front of her and felt no connection at all, I knew this was a result of a trip intense enough to induce feelings of depersonalisation so I needed to chill the fuck out and get my bearings
tears began to flood her eyes and I look back at her emotionlessly

drugs don't feel the same after this trip, I feel like my ego has migrated to an empty space of my brain where it shares no connection to its former identity

what is this sensation or lack thereof? the voice in my head is surpressed, everything appears literally, I've lost the vision that gave life its clasp of my soul

Had a similar experience, tripped way too hard off 100ug (I'd taken up to 500ug in the past with no difficulties), it was horrifying and i had depersonalization for months.

I cant really blame the drugs though, i had a lot of trauma from my past that i was internalizing anfld not processing. After a monster dose (1000ug) my brain reset and i havent had any depersonalization since then, in fact i feel more grounded than ever. I had to face a lot of scary, uncomfortable truths about myself and the world first though

I feel like maybe you realized something about existence/the ego that caused you to lose a connection to life from an ego-focused perspective, but you haven't found a satisfactory non-ego-focused perspective to adopt, so you're sort of stuck in a kind of existential despair. So I would recommend more inward thinking and/or tripping at higher doses (like 300ug) to try to move past the intermediate limbo/barrier stage you are stuck at now between egoic thinking and non egoic thinking.

I feel like taking around 3.5-6g of shrooms in a forest or some other natural environment would bring you back from behind your veil of emptiness. Bring a pencil and some paper and go somewhere where you can be alone to think and analyze how you feel. If this fails to show you the beauty in life/nature or does't bring you to a realization, than you should definitely take a break for awhile.

4-HO-MET - similar to shrooms, the visuals reminded me of geometric glyphs from mud pyramides in central America. Never had a really strong experience on 4-HO-MET but it always seem to be more grounded psychedelic with more organic feeling to it - visuals or not.

Not similar in my experience

25i is LSD visuals to the absolute max. Lots of shimmering, neon swirls, shadows, intense warping of objects. I remember watching a bush turn into zoo animals at an incredible rate for five minutes.

4-HO, like the guy above me said, is similar to shrooms. Organic feel, way more personal than 25i. Geometric visuals but nothing crazy. I'm prone to intense CEVs but on this they're usually pretty under control

Essentially, if you want visuals stick with nbome though I don't condone it

The two are not comparable in my experience. 4-HO is like shrooms, but with an easier body load and extreme visuals. It is a clean high, and some prefer it over regular shrooms.

25-I is also more visually oriented, but it is generally a dirtier, more unstable feeling LSD

So Yesterday I received my package of cactiseeds.
20 of each. San Pedro, bolovian torch, peruvian torch and peyote.
I've read a lot beforehand and I am still not too confident to be honest.

Anyone here with some experience with growing any of these from seed?

I am NOT looking for ways to grow them as fast as possible at all, I Just want to cultivate these sacred beings as good as I could and threat them with the respect they Reserve so I can enjoy the experience when the years passed and the time has come.

I was thinking about trying coconutsoil but im feeling Like they Just gonna rot this way

Microwave tech is fucking great.

A good mix for an established plant is 1/5 potting mix, 1/5 sand, 1/5 perlite, 1/5 river gravel, 1/10 vermiculite and 1/10 hard wood or nut shells (macadamia, peacan and walnut shells work great for long lasting food!). Add larger gravel/pebbles to the top (not bought, found, dirty, covered & full of minerals). That's my best medium but only once they're established. All plants are sacred / no plants are sacred, these ones simply contain mescaline.

>implying talking to your plants for a few minutes a day is enough to statistically impact their CO2 intake
Human breath exhaled is only 4 to 5% CO2 by volume, look it up, and that is like a butterfly's fart in a plant setting where it will disperse rapidly.
>implying you can't just seal them in a transparent container and flood it with CO2 for a day at a time or so, using CO2 canisters or baking soda / vinegar reactions, which would be 1000x more efficient than breathing on them

I don't think the studies that support talking to your plants were very rigorous, I think they mostly share their company with that bullshit Japanese study about freezing water to different songs and recording an emotional reaction in the crystals, but anyway for the sake of slayer, you might as well talk to them, can't hurt.

This we can agree on. Good art doesn't come from the ego and it certainly shouldn't appeal to it.

I like the way Santana explains it, he said something along the lines of "the music is the water, and you're the hose," the music isn't coming from you, so much as passing through you. The less you try to control it the better it comes out, and psychedelics just help you get out of your own way.

I don't disagree with your assessment that people should really know what the fuck they are talking about before they talk down about someone's work, but part of me feels that simple enjoyment is almost left out of the equation. Do I need to know why a piece makes me feel a certain emotion in order to validate the experience?

yeah well lets just remind us both that we are currently talking about contemporary "modern" art.

They make the art for the audience that actually go to shows, which just happen to be people who have studied fine art on some kind of academic level, they make it for them to enjoy, you may not enjoy contemporary artworks but in 20-40 years when that work has a few books written about it explaining why its good then maybe you can learn to enjoy it.

keep in mind, when people like picasso and max ernst showed their work they were practically ridiculed by the public because what they saw was derivative and "pfft thats supposed to be a person! looks nothing like it!!" but over time people came to understand picasso, people began to understand why cubism is a good artform because the people who could analyze art could then water it down and explain it to people, via journals etc, this is why the manifesto was so popular during the early 20th century because it gave people a brief understanding of why the art should be taken seriously.

So if you saw van goghs starry sky sitting on the ground next to some drunk half asleep trying to sell it to buy booze and have sex with prostitutes you would walk right past him and his work because it wouldn't look good to you, you would think "pfft that poor drunk cant even blend the brush strokes, those buildings dont look like buildings and the colours are just all wrong"

So enjoyment is part of the equation, its just that you will never see the artwork anyway so why make art you enjoy if you're never going to see it or understand it? Academics enjoy contemporary art and its not on some pretentious level its because they can delve deep into the artwork on a level most people cannot, they understand form, process and materials etc they can see the artist bending the piece of metal, stumbling upon the object, painting the brush strokes on the tree. Do you know what i mean?

If everything was just a perfect replication of a landscape people cant think or talk about that because its just a landscape, try writing 1000 words about a landscape painting that looks like a photo, you'd get maybe 500 or so words in and run out of things to say, but when you have something like edward kienholz you could literally write 10000 words about some of his works.

Anyways i hope thats kind of explained it.
