Honestly, I think drugs like that are more useful the more disconnected you are from your ecology and the systems that surround you. They serve as a good perspective-setter, and can be paradigm-shifting if you are extremely disconnected, as many Westerners seem to be.

I'm taking neuropharmacology next term, I might be able to weigh in a little more on what various psychedelics actually do.

Looking forward to it!

Tbh, most psychedelics have been really disappointing for me. I always preferred amphetamines, for some reason. Perhaps because my mind is so fucking noisy at the best of times, and they seemed to quiet it down somewhat.

These days my biggest intoxicants are caffeine and nicotine though. #straightedge-ish

I'm rather fond of mushrooms and the calming aftereffects they have on me. They definitely reduce my tendency toward anxiety.

I can't stand stimulants other than caffeine, and even that's a little iffy for me. I take Ritalin to help me focus and get shit done though, and that's not too bad although I feel a little TOO focused on it.

Mushroom have the opposite effect on me, they make me jumpy and edgy. I wonder what that says about my body chemistry...

Perhaps that you don't have PTSD?

So, people are actually protesting, despite the snow.

I am surprised but heartened by this news.  Also the protests appear to be spreading...a lot.

There was a big one here on MLK last night. Bus was stuck for a while as protesters poured down the street around it. I didn't mind; got quite a few bus-window high-fives and lots of finger-hearts from the protesters.

DMT is OK IME. Nothing I'd seek out.

Psilocybin has really interesting effects on rumination, memory, and plasticity -- I don't know if you've followed its use in treating PTSD and anxiety at all. Pretty interesting stuff. It seems to actually loosen the glial scaffolding that holds axodendritic synapses in place, allowing some of the connections to separate and new connections to form.

TERRITORIAL PISSING, YOU MISERABLE BASTA--






Oh, wait.  That's Tumblr.

I found something small wrapped in tinfoil in the freezer, so I ate it.

And that was the last anyone heard from Nigel.

I lived!

It was a pretty fun night, though. :lol:

I don't even know what ayahuasca is, Captain Sweatpants.

A DMT-containing herbal brew used by Amazonian indians for ceremonial purposes, and hippies for recreational purposes.
