Did I have a vision, /x/?
>smoke way too much medical-grade weed, begin to lose it
>decide to lie down and go to sleep to escape the discomfort of being way too high, shit actually starts to distort
>overwhelmed, decide to just clear my racing mind, lie down on my back in pitch-darkness
>if I have a thought, ignore it and just go back to the nothingness behind my eyelids
>just breathing, eventually stop focusing even on that
>trying my best to ignore all external stimulation and sensation
>focusing on the darkness behind my eyelids
>focusing on nothingness
>focusing on the nothingness right there behind my eyelids, no sensation, no thought
>not realizing it, I'm focusing intently on the area where my "third eye" is and drifting into nothingness
>suddenly, I see the entire fucking cosmos from beginning to end, on a macrocosmic scale and microcosmic scale, which are suddenly synonymous and not at the same time
>the entire cosmos takes the form (except it's not a "form" and it's still the "cosmos") of what appears to be like an eye
>the eye of providence
>I can feel it staring right into and through me, except it's my eye at the same time that it's the cosmos's, and it's looking through the entire cosmos at the same time as looking at me and is the entire cosmos at the same time as being a part of it, and I'm staring straight back into it despite not being a body anymore, etc.
>scale is nothing
>You know that feeling of being looked at, even when you can't see the person looking at you? I can feel that bearing down on me like heat/energy and vibration/sound and increasing in magnitude and intensity infinitely as visions of the cosmos are simultaneously in the eye and not
>all of this is somehow true despite me not having any thought or sensation or interpreting any of it myself; just experience all of it and it's self-evident
>it's most intense fucking thing, even more so than freebasing DMT
>open my eyes, jolt up, make a startled vocalization
Just trying to sleep.
I do that all the fucking time and I've never had anything like this happen. Usually, if I see anything, it's just colored blobs and patterns moving around in the darkness, not one of the most vivid and intense things I've ever experienced.
Seriously, I'm a daily stoner and I've mixed pyschs and not had anything near as powerful as that happen, and it's never that fucking loud. If visuals are gameboy pocket graphics, that shit was IMAX in 3D.
I dunno if I can even blame this one on the drugs, and the fact that the area I was focusing on was my third eye didn't even occur to me until today (a year or so later) when I was reading about chaos magick.
I want to know what the hell that meant.
That's called meditating. You can think of it as a "deep focus state" as there are multiple levels it seems. Being high probably alowed for increase blood flow to various parts of your brain as well as increased dopamine. Dopamine is hormone. Hormones are chemicals. Chemicals are magick. Reality is your mind's interpretation. The universe exists only through your consciousness. Some would say you are experiencing the "spiritual realm" during meditation like this. A psychological phenomenon some would call it. There's no difference. We only influence the external reality to alter our internal. The reverse can be done as well. We are all somewhat limited by each other, some more than others.
Look, I'm high every day and I've never had anything near that level happen.
Today's the first time I've actually read anything extensive about that beyond the phrase "third eye" being mentioned.
Is that sorta like chakra meditation? 'Cuz I've tried that, but I never really felt like I got past the lower ones.
This shit actually makes me want to take up meditation again. The last time I was seriously into it was middle school, and I kinda dropped it when I started hearing voices in inhuman tongues. I've heard of people having trip-level experiences just from meditating, but I never really believed it.
1. I'm months away from being rich beyond your wildest dreams. Millions. And even if this falls through, I'll figure something out.
2. You seem to be mistaken. This is /x/, not /r9k/.
>hippie fag does drugs, thinks he is enlightened
>Goes to /x/ to attempt to show off
fuck off faggot
I'm astonished that people can say "YOU WERE HIGH BRO LOL"
Obviously you've never been high before, stop thinking a television show accurately depicts the effects of any drug.
You stupid fucking child.
I'm high every day too, and that is not normal, I don't care what kind of weed it is.
Clearly you have no idea what it's like to be high.
Have you been high before? Or are you just some idiot who thinks what you're told is truth and since you're on drugs nothing is real anymore?
Blacking out for an hour and waking up to eat all the food in the house is common. When you smoke dope like you drink water, it doesn't work as well. You don't trip the fuck out like babbys first kush. Ethenogenic doses are really hard to imbibe for heavy users. I've had some full blown spiritual shit maybe 6 times and I was never the heaviest of users. Being higher than you have any right to be is hardly common.
It's all metaphors anyway, a constant source of confusion, but a vivid dream is absolutely nothing like an enthenogenic experience. There is high and there is a kind of high that breaks barriers and does some freaky shit. It's pretty rare among heavy users.
All I ever said was that that kind of high doesn't happen very often. It's some next level shit. It's very different from the usual and there are certain aspects in common with intensive meditation that usually have absolute fuckall to do with weed.
As for the third eye shit, that's exactly what happened in terms of what the third eye metaphor represents in practice.
It seems more like they're just mentally ill and have stopped trying to be charming or witty. They seem to be the most aggressive shitposters on 4chan on every board too. Ah well. Fuck'em.
That's because you're the result of inbreeding by people who sat in their hovels while American ancestors went out to conquer the new world.
>oh those Americans are just making up stories again
ITS PARANORMAL GUYS. I USED A LOT OF PHYCHODELLICS AND IM SEEING THINGS IM ENLIGHENED
You didnt trip as well before because you did something wrong and resistence isnt exaclty built so fast.
I had a similar experience after I took 4 tabs of LSD. I felt as if my conception of the universe in my thought-space constituted an entire reality's timeline, from beginning to end.
It's nice to think back on every now and again :D.
Don't worry anon. True enlightenment is through plants, drugs, and most are ignorant through no fault of their own. Imagine the ultimate flask of all these plants brewed together and your vision is totally overlapped but giving you total control of your thoughts and actions. That is what they mean by "in the Spirit" in the Bible. Soon.
>Why? /x/fags spend their time making up stories. I spend my time calling their stories bad.
Even by your interpretation, you are by far the miserable and less fulfilled person in this scenario.
>people express creatively
>I call it bad
The other guy just said the experience described by OP is doesn't happen very often as a result of being high. And then he said that the third eye is simply a metaphor.
This is why you don't post this shit on /x/ OP
Involuntary agents everywhere
All as deluded as you are
It's a shitfest dude why do you think monks and seriously spiritual people go to such great lengths to isolate themselves?
How will you cultivate yourself with so much opposition?
Might happen that way
Might also not
Depends a lot on the individual and the circumstances surrounding them
Also what a lot of people call mental illnesses may be close to the state the person in question desires to achieve. Mental illness is just a phrase that translates to "thinking this way is bad". It may or may not be, but attaching preconceptions to different mental states won't help if a different mental state is what you want.
If it isn't, then what the fuck no don't do drugs and isolate yourself.
If the person is isolated, though, then their mental abnormalities will have no impact on you, will they?
