Or to be like, oneself. I took shrooms and acid a couple times about 10 years ago, because I wanted to get the Syd-like vision, to see things and think about things like that kind of person. It didn't work for me like that though. It was interesting, but it just gave me a bunch of jumbled thoughts and colors.

I think you have to know things, and know how to do things, ahead of time, in order to get any real meaningful vision out of it. The best metaphor I can think of for it is like the Empire Strikes Back when Luke goes into the cave on Dagobah, and he asks Yoda what's in there and he replies, "only what you take with you".

Haha, that's a great metaphor!

I took acid a lot in my early 20's. I smoked pot, did other stuff too, but LSD was my favourite. Like yourself, I didn't experience anything really mind-blowing thought-wise, but it was the vision and sensory disturbances that fascinated me. Like the 'real' world would sort of disappear and be replaced by this Alice-in-Wonderland realm where everything was distorted—time, touch, feel, vision. I vividly remember sitting in a park and watching a guy ride by on his bike, but I was seeing him in a series of vignettes or snapshots. Imagine being in an art gallery where all the paintings are of one theme (in this case a guy riding his bike) but they're all slightly different as he rides along - the paintings are all evenly spaced along the wall and you're slowly walking through the gallery looking at each one. You're not seeing them in one smooth motion like you normally would, but in little steps.

The closest I can come to recreating those bizarre sensory experiences (I'm a responsible adult now. . . *sigh* ;)) now is if I get a severe anxiety attack. Same kinds of things happen, especially with sound - ie, a softly ticking clock in a quiet room will become super-loud. The human mind is weird.

enta elahi - an arabic christian worship song. The language is beautiful, so is the singing, but mostly the lyrics. Love it.

I learned the truth at seventeen
That love was meant for beauty queens
And high school girls with clear skinned smiles
Who married young and then retired
The valentines I never knew
The Friday night charades of youth
Were spent on one more beautiful
At seventeen I learned the truth
