Experience counts. And the only experience that counts… is yours. If you’ve not had the experience, all these words will just be pedestrians on the page. Nothing more. Such is the duality of nature. I could write volumes and you’d still never understand because language breaks down. Diction falls flat through the Earth. Connotations liquefy into liquid glass. Idioms shatter. For nothing in the sounds produced by the monkey’s throat with cultural meanings ascribed to them are adequate for the true sharing of reality and thoughts. The true sharing of the true reality is always in the psychedelic space. Always.
I am not here to provide people with answers. I have none for them, but for my own. And for my own, they will always change. I am here to advocate the retaking of your mind from cultural and societal conditioning. Exactly what we’re arguing the point about.
A conditioned mind is useless. It’s a serf. It’s bound in bondage and slavery. Madness is born from control. The disorder is born from a mind in bondage. Genius is born in freedom. True freedom. Freedom from self-doubt and self-judgment.
And a mind encumbered by self-judgment, never mind the judgments and opinions of others, has no room for true observation, that which is true knowledge.
Consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds.
You hold language and consistency so dear. You have no idea how bad language is. This is why you make music. This is why you make art. We’re sensory beings. Visual and aural. Language breaks down.
The psychedelic reality is the most practical reality because it is the only reality. Even in the Quantum world, you find backward flowing time, negative time, particle/wave duality… I mean this really is about as psychedelic as you can get when getting to the roots of it all.
You’re living in the reality created and synthesized by the organs of sense perception. And your senses betray you. They create an image of reality in the mind as the senses need the body and the senses themselves to survive. That is it. You simply cannot trust your senses to guide you in any reality. And to hold that this reality is somehow the true reality and that for some odd reason you can trust this collectively shared reality synthesized from the organs of sense perception to be the only reality is small minded in my humble opinion.
Yet, simultaneously, this is the only reality. There is no other reality than the one enforced upon the Organism. But to see the truth of the Universal reality, that it’s all psychedelic, that is something else entirely.
If you think that you’re going to understand something so deep in a matter of minutes or hours and comment on it, you’re gravely mistaken.
Understanding follows when it will. It cannot be forced. Do not hope to understand what I am saying.
