So last wednesday I took 60 mg 4-Aco-DMT on a fine evening and within 40 minutes started experiencing Alien-Hand Syndrome. First thing I noticed was some sudden movement about the place where my hand was, so I went to look at it and saw my hand moving, mostly the fingers, moving around as if I was playing some instrument interspersed with gripping motions. In this instant I had for a brief moment the thought that since I was not moving the hand, some mysterious alien presence was in fact moving it, before this vanished (this maybe was some cognitive dissonance thing, the wiki article on AHS suggests) and I realised more lucidly that this affected only my right hand side, meaning that my left hemisphere must be hyperactive and in a vaguely seizure-like status. This led to the realization what was happening, as I had read about AHS before.

Interestingly, this was not accompied by fear at all. I was only briefly concerned about hurting myself, so I tried to order my hand to stay away from my face, trying to put it on my knee. After a second I managed to move it and knew that it was I who moved it, those two processes running concurrently somehow. The movements became a bit more gracile, and I saw slight tracers around my fingertips. Over the course of the next few hours this abated somewhat, after about an hour I was somehow able to "switch" the phenomenon from my right to my left hand and back again if I wanted to, and some time after that I managed to be able to coordinate complex movements with the hand under my control, moving it in a certain pattern and having the other hand follow seemingly by itself, felt like dancing with myself.

That must be one of the coolest things I have every experienced on /psy/, while all this was going on I was constantly in thought-loops about the concept of time, how this was an object as if before me and that that was profound, how the movie I had running in the background was defying it when the movie looped, how doing nothing is the coolest thing ever, and that this alien-presence was still there although I knew it wasn't, constantly switching between these two perspectives. Besides some images near the end where I fractally zoomed into patches of color and…

Hello friends, I have syrian rue and mimosa hostilis, and I'm hoping you can give me some good suggestions on admixtures.

I'm thinking about HWBR seeds in a cold water extraction, or using a small dose of datura (5-10 seeds, maybe), or a small does of dph (100mg). As far as I'm aware the syrian rue will greatly potentiate any of them, so the small doses would be necessary.

I find pharmahuasca good as it is, but I'm hoping to enhance the visuals even more.

Remember, shamans make their brews not out of some psychonautic desire, or some psychiatrical need to cure, but simply because that's how they were taught how to make that brew by the previous shaman of their community.

Sometimes a community just happened to develop an ayahuasca brew that just doesn't fucking make any sense for people outside that community.

I took 6.5g rue this morning, and followed it with 10 HBWR seeds and then 2.5g mimosa hostilis 30 mins later.

Effects were similar to what I might get from a much higher dosage of mimosa hostilis (10g or so). But it came on much faster.

Overall very good.

Wow that is a lot. I always thought 3 g rue and 3 g mimosa was as high as one could comfortably go, based on hearsay and my experiments at lower doses.

I have a very good relationship with rue and it has induced many learning experiences, so I'm rather comfortable with it. I'm also 90kg, so that helps. Rue is cheap and for mao inhibition it's better to be on the safe side with a higher dose. Most would also argue that in terms of ayahuasca rue is merely an maoi but I would tend to disagree and say that there are qualitative effects.

also check erowid and you will see 10g+ doses of mimosa are not uncommon. Although I would say anything 15g+ is an utterly heroic dose for someone my weight.

Further. If anybody is interested in combining HBWR with Ayahuasca I would recommend dosing your aya and waiting about 1 hr (aya doesn't start coming on until +1.5 hrs) then putting finely ground HBWR under your tongue and holding for at least 15 mins then swallowing.

I noticed for me that sublingual HBWR comes on HARD after 1-1.5 hrs. And I was already far gone on HBWR before the aya even started onset. LSA seems like a very good additive to aya to enhance the learning, although it might also completely throw off your thought pattern if you aren't prepared for it.

Friend is offering to treat me soon to some "needlepoint" that he has access to.
Simply, I haven't done acid or mushrooms in over two years.
I have eaten my share of boomers and dont really feel the need to dose any higher than 3.5g's these days.
As for acid, I would say everything I did was could be considered "mids" til I was given some GG stuff that was 200ug a tab. Prior to that, I could eat strips of what ever the fuck "fluff" is no problem. My first 200ug trip showed me the acid I had been receiving was pretty weak and diluted.

So, here we are. Only had needlepoint once to my knowledge.
Don't really remember that because I freaked out.
I was younger and ate two tabs and lost my shit and had one of the worst introspective trips of my life.
Catatonic emotional state with inability to express myself to my friends.

On that note, I plan on taking a single tab of this stuff provided it pases the Ehrlich standard exam.
What dose should I expect this to be?
100ug? 125ug? 300ug?

My connects are all wooks. Phish kids and Grateful Dead fanatics.

this is more less what I have gathered in my experience at festivals. That the more honest people will refer to their doses as fluff and occasionally try and hype up some "needlepoint" but not in a too overbearing way. where as the heady wooks and ewoks always had "super needlepoint bro" or "got the love bro. super heady doses" or "FRESHLY LAID CRYSTAL FOR THE 50TH"(That one was in reference to the deads last show in chicago lmao yeah right).

I'm aware of the horseshit advertisements made by LSD dealers.
This friend usually has access to above entry level shit to the market as far as street LSD goes. (although i suspect his connect just uses GG off some info hes given me)
More less, anyone whos got experience with advertised needlepoint, what would you say the dose was?

So I've been huffing a lot of stuff recently. I know it's super bad for me, but the high is incredible and I can't really get other drugs. My big issue is that people can pretty much immediately tell if I've been huffing. I either smell like gasoline or lighter fluid or I have paint all over my face, or I can't hear shit because I've been huffing air horn gas.

Anyone have a good discreet inhalant I can just buy nonchalantly at a store?

you are going to run into a physical barrier trying to get that much DMT into your CNS sans having someone inject it all for you.

You'll completely leave your body long before you ingest a full gram via vaporization. Try 100mg if you're really looking for something , even then you might not make it that far.

i don't wanna be that guy, but are you sure you're getting all of it into your system? have you tried different methods or maybe changa? 200mg should send you on a rocket to the 8th dimension my friend. 30mg is enough to get me out of my body, when vaporized at almost max efficiency. i'm just saying, there are differences in people's tolerances, sure, but human physiology isn't THAT different. there's some other factor involved, perhaps you should dampen your heat and examine your body's intake valve and check that full aspiration of the vapor is occurring.

Method I used was sandwiching it between weed in a dry pipe and ghosting as much of it as I could. My thought for the half gram was to just free base it so the weed won't get in the way.

I do have a massive tolerance to psychedelics, though. It takes at least 400 mics of acid for me to have visuals.

I'm more motivated/inspired to work on my health and seek balance in the things that I do. I feel that I can be more empathetic towards others, notice and appreciate the smaller things in life again, and sometimes reframe my perspective on life in general (i.e., not get so caught up with materialistic desires and such).
I do feel that it has also made me more introverted and made me overthink things a lot more, has really blurred the line between confidence and arrogance to the point that I am less outgoing too.
Still, the best thing I've ever gotten out of it was picking up jiu jitsu as a martial art and grounding point for my life.

I can cry more easily now, or just experience feelings stronger in general. I'm not pushing them down now which I find fascinating since feelings are an integral part of the human experience. This, and the occasional HPPD wall-dancing.

Also I did all my tripping (fuckload of LSD) in the span of 8 months and I haven't done any in 10 months so it might just be the lack of consistency.

Psychedelics just make me experience mystical shit while lifting my depression for like 3 days. Then the emotional baggage creeps back in due to random stressful shit happening and I feel miserable just like before. I often catch myself trying to put the experience and the conclusions into words and failing to do so, sounding literally incoherent, illogical and retarded. Or maybe people just make me feel that way, or both of it.
My default mode network is still about feeling like an insecure, anxious, depressed piece of crap.
I guess it's my fault for not trying harder to integrate the psychedelic experience.

I guess what it did was changing my perspective on reality, but that doesn't fix anything for me, it's just a bonus.

Totally feel like you do. The day after I tripped was the happiest day of my life. It was like I was a new person who I wanted to be. Then the days went on and I started to regress back to my anxiety-ridden, insecure self.

What I find helps is if you try to remember the feeling you felt on acid. Remember what it was like and try to get back to that point. Remember what your mind was telling you. Don't give up

I went from a neo-nazi polac conservative to loving the gentle gift of being alive and appreciating everyone for who they are. I am no longer bais towards anyone. I feel lighter inside and don't repress anything. I feel as if government oversteps constantly. I have learned that my hate for others was directly correlated to repressed hate towards myself. There is much much more, but the main point is I have more love for myself and in turn more room to love and appreciate others.

3 month mushroom binge. 4g dose and 7.5g dose among 20+ others. Taken more than a year off. No need for more lessons yet. Never done acid, only natures gifts.

Okay so, I took a 2 mg green xan about an hour ago. I have a tab and a half of LSD (150ug, ordered off the market of dreams and I've done other tabs from the same batch so the potency is accurate.) I'm about an hour into my high off of the benzos and I want to take the acid. Will the benzo high diminish my trip? I know it does if you do it during the trip, but what about before??

Why do I some times feel really mindfucked up by acid when I havent felt the same effect on higher doses?
I'll explain. The first time I took acid, the dimensions of my room felt huge and distorted, I spun around in euphoria a lot and got "lost" in my small apartment momentarily. I also felt like I time warped: I got the idea in my head to go outside then I suddenly found myself from the front door, no idea how I got there, deciding that it would be bad to go outside in that state.

Another time my short term memory was completely shot for a while (though admittedly I smoked weed that time). I sat in front of my computer, meaning to put on a song, then I just tripped out and realized like a minute later that I had just sat there doing nothing and kind of looping in on myself, kind of snapped out of that moment and said "whoa" to myself.

Oddly enough, I haven't felt moments like that since when tripping, even on higher, more visual doses. Thought loops seem more rare now as well.
I've improved my eating habits and started exercising since, so maybe that might have something to do with it? I just feel like I'm more alert during my trips now. Or is it just general experience with the substance?

Might as well ask this here as well: does any one else have trouble with distances, time, numbers and performing every day cerberal tasks when tripping? I mean that's kind of the nature of the substance, it puts you in a more primal, child like state where you're in connection with your emotions and intuition. It just feels like I'm retarded when I take a dose that's on the higher end for social activites but not too overwhelming for parties and such (90-150~~?). Forgetting words, stuttering, having hard time communicating if some one talks to me + the aforementioned problem with numbers, measurements etc.

This is gonna sound pretty edgy but it is only a caricature of a thought that I ponder now and then

What's the point? It's safe to assume that the total sum of all human experience on the scale of happiness is negative. Why would anyone bother to work your ass off for anything when you can just end your existence. Everything you achieve is objectively meaningless if you remove the delusion that life as we know it actually matters.The only way life would have a meaning is if there was an afterlife where your actions are rewarded. I feel as if most people are naturally afraid of death because they are more or less scared of things they can not comprehend. psychedelics made me not long for death, but also not fear death.

Please prove me wrong as this is the intention of this post

There is a huge difference between absurdism and nihilism, especially since nihilism (as described by Nietzsche) isn't a philosophy, it is an antiphilosophy, a lack of philosophy, it is the mental hole created when a weak mind realises God doesn't exist and cannot find direction in life out of their own will and desires.

By, "realizing that god doesn't exist," I'm assuming you mean to say, "realizing that their god doesn't exist," and that the end goal of the enlightened mind is to realize that you are the god of your self?

>it is an antiphilosophy, a lack of philosophy
Pick one. Either it's a lack of a philosophy or it's a philosophy that opposes philosophy.

And before you come back with some bullshit answer like a philosophy that opposes all philosophy is the same thing as a lack of philosophy, that's incorrect. An example outside of philosophy is religion and theism. Atheism is simply a lack of belief in any gods, where as being an antitheist means you actively oppose religion. You saying nihilism is both an antiphilosophy and a lack of philosophy is tantamount to conflating atheism with antitheism.

However, we might as well go ahead and state right now that nihilism is a philosophical theory and it makes definite assertions about the nature of reality and existence. If somebody simply lacked philosophy, they wouldn't go on to make any claims about anything. Literally the only thing somebody who lacks a belief in something can do (and still be correct in their assessment that they simply lack belief in something) is proclaim their lack of belief, period.

Now, some more examples that support I was right in using nihilism the way I did.

>The idea that meaning and values are without foundation is a form of nihilism, and the existential response to that idea is noting that meaning is not "a matter of contemplative theory," but instead, "a consequence of engagement and commitment."

>The theory purports to describe the human situation to create a life outlook and create meaning, which has been summarized as, "Strut, fret, and delude ourselves as we may, our lives are of no significance, and it is futile to seek or to affirm meaning where none can be found."[3] Existential nihilists claim that, to be honest, one must face the absurdity of existence, that he/she will eventually die, and that both religion and metaphysics are simply results of the fear of death.[2]

Before you get all sperged out over the fact that they reference the term of absurdity in that last example there, keep in mind what exactly it is I'm trying to prove: that I was correct in my comparison of people's beliefs that life lacks any meaning to nihilism. Of course, I noticed you ignored my last response, most likely because you didn't have anything you could actually come back at me with. Have you decided to give up or what…
