I've been reading up on psychedelic drugs lately. There are a lot of positive annecdotal reports on one's sense of well-being after using peyote or LSD. Anyone out there tried either of these?
Thanks for all the answers everyone. I've have really enjoyed trying to "hack" various aspects of my life, and it occurred to me that my brain is the most powerful "CPU" I'm likely to gain access to. I've experimented with hypnosis, trans-cranial direct current stimulation, and lucid dreaming, but these have always felt like I am standing in the lobby of a movie theater trying to figure out what the movie was about based upon muffled dialog and the occasional glimpse of the screen when someone walks out to use the rest room. I seem to instinctively know that the real "life changing" knowledge lies within our own mind.
Used to do Acid and peyote when I was young. My grandkids are now asking me about it. I tell them that I wouldn’t trust any pill nowadays because you just don’t know what’s in it. Of course, the same was true 50 years ago when I was doing it. I survived it (and really, really enjoyed it) but now that my grandkids want to do the same stupid stuff I did, It makes me a bit nervous for them. It’s one thing to do stupid stuff on your own, but when your grandkids want to do the same thing, well, it’s kinda NOT the same thing, in a world where you can’t get a job flipping hamburgers without being drug tested.
No peyote, never did it.. But I'd sure like to trip about twice a year....why leave the house to go on vacation? Seriously, it's the quickest, easiest way to get over this God BS.
I did some acid when younger. Some good, some not so good experiences. Then in my 50's some was given to me.....much, much better for me!
