so the reference comes up often here i have noticed, of a famous trip report by terrence meckenna, mentioning entities which are met during a DMT trip named by him as 'machine elves'. i myselve have met entities during a DMT trip, but never an 'elfish' being.

have any of you met a 'machine elf'? what was the meaning behind the vision, OR what knowledge or information did it "impart" to you?

I met spirits on a heavy salvia trip. I was literally ripped from this reality and ended up in something that could be described as a game show, where the spirits were cheering for me because I'd breached the limit I guess most pass when they die. Our reality was just a prop in their 'game', I can't explain it any better.

I wouldn't call them 'machine elves', but they were something not human.

I met all my next of context on salvia, as in like how each moment of you is a collection of things or snippets that can have a state, for each little change there could be, each little sequence of thoughts that could be further down or up the line, that was another me. So to even hear a word I had to knit together each one into a string of me-contexts, further into the sequence of shapes, them falling out of me into the bottle keeping the sum of the contexts to make sense of it. Falling away from me from where I am to were I was.

I had a good time cause all these other contexts of me that were reaching out into from me were just telling me that things are cool and they will still be there even when I can't see them anymore.

It is well known that Tolkien used these races as standins for Europeans, with elves being Scandinavians, hobbitland being England, Dwarves being Austrians/Germans/Swiss, and orcs being Russians.

>Dwarves being Austrians/Germans/Swiss
Not quite

>Tolkien was now influenced by his own selective reading of medieval texts regarding the Jewish people and their history.[6] The dwarves' characteristics of being dispossessed of their homeland (the Lonely Mountain, their ancestral home, is the goal the exiled Dwarves seek to reclaim), and living among other groups whilst retaining their own culture are all derived from the medieval image of Jews,[6][7] whilst their warlike nature stems from accounts in the Hebrew Bible.[6]

>Tolkien also elaborated on Jewish influence on his Dwarves in a letter: "I do think of the 'Dwarves' like Jews: at once native and alien in their habitations, speaking the languages of the country, but with an accent due to their own private tongue..."[T 5]

>In the last interview before his death, Tolkien, after discussing the nature of Elves, briefly says of his Dwarves: "The dwarves of course are quite obviously, wouldn't you say that in many ways they remind you of the Jews? Their words are Semitic, obviously, constructed to be Semitic."[12]

There's no such thing as Celtic runes, those are Nordic. The Celts never had a written language. That said, the language of Tolkein's elves are very obviously Celtic inspired, they sound like someone speaking gibberish in Welsh.

Well, from what I've read the "elf" decription isn't so much about their appearance, and is more relevant to their demeanor, as in, they seem like some sort of Higher Dimensional, Mischievous fae analog, like they know something you don't and are trying to get you to figure it out yourself, all giggling amongst themselves while goading you along. Sometimes they act more benevolent than other times.

I think Terence McKenna described one of his first encounters with them as being "jeweled, self dribbling basketballs". Not very elf-like at all.

Not Tolkien, but the fantasy racial stereotype for the Swiss has traditionally been Gnomes.

I always thought of Gnomes as Russian, probably because the Nick Jr. show, it had a really Russian feel to it, especially because it was a children's series that ended with the death of the main characters.

It's usually eyes. Saw it on fly agaric mushroom, which I would not recommend taking. It made me rage out and I probably almost died.

I know, I read his trip reports, and the trip reports of others on erowid, dmt-nexus and elsewhere, and honest to god, when I finally started seeing them on psys, (never did dmt, but saw them on salvia, cubensis and acid) they WERE cartoony, like littel christmas elves, which I thought made the description terence said of them "making gifts" taht they would give you, that really started to grok me like whooaaa, hey hold on now, are these connected somehow? Ive seen the entire new york skyline from a brooklyn rooftop be completely, how can you say it, constructed out of these elves, like I could see the "true form" of the buildings, while still being able to see how it would normally look simulatneously. If that makes sense, they were everything in our reality. SO when I went back downstairs into the apartment, all of the walls had giant like, 1930's cartoon faces on all of the walls and chairs and shit. They were all smiling and laughing and I was like "yep, this is heaven" (at least it was to me). I've seen them other times, like on Salvia, once the whole room turned into what I called at the time "wooden toy soldier arms" and another time on salvia there some, in different times:

>my sister and someone else I "knew" in their "true forms" from some home I had forgot I had come from, they were tiny tiny people in the corner of the nook in my bedtide table. I almost started crawling to go there with them
>same weekend, a tunnel formed in front of my eyes, and lots of doors opened up in teh tunnel and wavy, bendy cartoon like arms wiggled out to greet and beckon me
>a tiny man in the carpet named "peanut butter pibble pabble"
>and elf like cartoon man who had a tangible outline taht had it's own lighting and shading, like it was a tube

On mushrooms I saw the many armed woody woodpecker, candy colored ones. they formed n the wall in front of me (i was sitting comfy on a couch) like a mandala that entranced me for what seemed like hours, it was amazing

I even remember seeing one on Spice.

Long story short, I'm an animist now, lol. I wanna try DMT and Aya still though.

maybe the cultural connotations of the word are different to him than they are to you or maybe it was the sort of trip where you just "know" something is something despite it looking totally different, as often happens in dreams.

>honest to god, when I finally started seeing them on psys

I met elf-like beings if you want to describe them as such. Nothing machine about them. And I've seen them on several trips at different times.

They have no face, just skin where there would be a mouth, nose and eyes.
They all had either antlers or some kind of antenna.
Very tall and slender, very friendly.
Some of them had four arms.

One time I rode down a sort of psychedelic river with a few of them. And one held my face and snapped when my trip ended.

They are the many faces of God, and we are one of those faces. We've only just forgotten this because right now we are experiencing reality in a body.

It's kind of a funny joke to them. Sometimes God takes on a body, and God always forget what it is. This is why a breakthrough feels like going home. Literally, you are going home for a visit. The place you will return to when you die.

Those who have seen it no longer fear death. Death will be going home.

Rg7+, black has 2 legal moves. Qxg7 is not very good for black after Qxg7+ from white, (though probably best, because) so Kf8
Ng6+!, blacks king has no more moves, so hxg6, followed by Qh8#
