But first Here is an original  poem Inspired By Salvia Divornium  Followed By a Link to a Short Film

Ok let’s get up I’ll just get the over by this gotta get the
keys are over near the OK NOW i’ll just get out of this.

Machine elves (also known as fractal elvesself-transforming elf machines) is a term coined by the late ethnobotanist, writer and philosopher Terence McKenna to describe the apparent entities that are often reported by individuals usingtryptamine-based psychedelic drugs, especially DMT.[1] References to such encounters can be found in many cultures ranging from shamanic traditions of Native Americans to indigenous Australians and African tribes, as well as amongWestern users of these substances.[2]

From Reticulated Anthropogenesis

This concept may be related to a tendency for the brain to imagine living entities during certain altered states[citation needed]. The best example of this is the extremely common feeling of a living presence during sleep paralysis (which has been theorized as the origin of the succubus, as well as a common theme in many alien abduction stories). However, Terence McKenna and Dr. Rick Strassman have both asserted the sense of reality of the experience is distinct from ordinary hallucinatory experiences, leading both researchers to speculate that perhaps the physics of many worlds is involved.[1]Jacques Vallee has proposed that the entities met may be of an interdimensional nature in his interdimensional hypothesis.

From Reticulated Anthropogenesis

James Kent has put forth a different explanation for machine elves.[3] Kent postulates that the DMT landscape is simply disrupting or “editing” our processing of visual information and causing a chaotic interpretation of it inspired by hyperactivephosphene activity. The brain may fill in the blanks and since we all have an affinity for anthropomorphic things, a humanoid entity may appear out of all this chaos. Our “imaginal workplace” will take the center stage in brain activity, allowing internal data to be interpreted as external stimuli.

When reflecting upon his mescaline experiences Aldous Huxley suggested that there was something, which he called Mind at Large, which was filtered by the ordinary functioning of the human brain to produce ordinary experience. [4]

From Reticulated Anthropogenesis

At about minute one or two of a DMT trip, according to McKenna, one may burst through a chrysanthemum-like mandala, and find:

There’s a whole bunch of entities waiting on the other side, saying “How wonderful that you’re here! You come so rarely! We’re so delighted to see you!”

They’re like jewelled self-dribbling basketballs and there are many of them and they come pounding toward you and they will stop in front of you and vibrate, but then they do a very disconcerting thing, which is they jump into your body and then they jump back out again and the whole thing is going on in a high-speed mode where you’re being presented with thousands of details per second and you can’t get a hold on [them ...] and these things are saying “Don’t give in to astonishment”, which is exactly what you want to do. You want to go nuts with how crazy this is, and they say “Don’t do that. Pay attention to what we’re doing”.

What they’re doing is making objects with their voices, singing structures into existence. They offer things to you, saying “Look at this! Look at this!” and as your attention goes towards these objects you realise that what you’re being shown is impossible. It’s not simply intricate, beautiful and hard to manufacture, it’s impossible to make these things. The nearest analogy would be the Fabergé eggs, but these things are like the toys that are scattered around the nursery inside a U.F.O., celestial toys, and the toys themselves appear to be somehow alive and can sing other objects into existence, so what’s happening is this proliferation of elf gifts, which are moving around singing, and they are saying “Do what we are doing” and they are very insistent, and they say “Do it! Do it! Do it!” and you feel like a bubble inside your body beginning to move up toward your mouth, and when it comes out it isn’t sound, it’s vision. You discover that you can pump “stuff” out of your mouth by singing, and they’re urging you to do this. They say “That’s it! That’s it! Keep doing it!”.

We’re now at minute 4.5 [of the trip] and you speak in a kind of glossolalia. There is a spontaneous outpouring of syntax unaccompanied by what is normally called “meaning”. After a minute or so of this the whole thing begins to collapse in on itself and they begin to physically move away from you. Usually their final shot is that they wave goodbye and say “Deja vu! Deja vu!”.

From Reticulated Anthropogenesis

The term psychedelic is derived from the Greek words ψυχή (psyche, “mind”) and δηλείν (delein, “to manifest”), hence “mind-manifesting”, the implication being that psychedelics can access and develop unused potentials of the human mind.[1] The word was coined by Humphrey Osmond, loathed by Richard Schultes, but championed by Timothy Leary.[2]

From Reticulated Anthropogenesis

The word psychedelic (From Ancient Greek ψυχή (psychê) mind, soulδηλος (dêlos)manifest, reveal + -ic) was coined to express the idea of a drug that makes manifest a hidden but real aspect of the mind. It is commonly applied to any drug with perception-altering effects such as LSDpsilocybinDMT2C-Bmescaline and DOB as well as a panoply of othertryptaminesphenethylamines and yet more exotic chemicals.

The term “psychedelic” is used interchangeably with “psychotomimetic” and “hallucinogen”,[4]thus it can refer to a large number of drugs such as classical hallucinogens (LSDpsilocybin,mescaline, etc.), entactogens (e.g. MDMA), cannabinoids and dissociative drugs (e.g.ketamine). The classical hallucinogens are considered to be the representative psychedelics and LSD is generally considered the prototypical psychedelic.[4] In order to refer to the LSD-like psychedelics, scientific authors have used the term “classical hallucinogen” in the sense defined by Glennon (1999): “The classical hallucinogens are agents that meet Hollister’s original definition, but are also agents that: (a) bind at 5-HT2 serotonin receptors, and (b) are recognized by animals trained to discriminate 1-(2,5-dimethoxy-4-methylphenyl)-2-aminopropane (DOM) from vehicle.[5] Otherwise, when the term “psychedelic” is used to refer only to the LSD-like psychedelics (a.k.a. the classical hallucinogens), authors explicitly point that they intend “psychedelic” to be understood according to this more restrictive interpretation (e.g. see Nichols, 2004).[6]

Common herbal and fungal sources of psychedelics include psilocybe mushrooms (largely psilocybe cubensis), variousayahuasca preparations, peyote, Peruvian Torch, and San Pedro cactus.

One explanatory model for the experiences provoked by hallucinogens is the “reducing valve” concept, first articulated inAldous Huxley‘s book The Doors of Perception.[7] In this view, the drugs disable the brain’s “filtering” ability to selectively prevent certain perceptions, emotions, memories and thoughts from ever reaching the conscious mind. This effect has been described as mind expanding, or consciousness expanding, for the drug “expands” the realm of experience available to conscious awareness.[citation needed]

Psychedelic effects can vary depending on the precise drug and dosage, as well as the set and setting. “Trips” range between the short but intense effects of intravenous DMT to the protracted ibogaine experience, which can last for days. Appropriate dosage ranges from extremely low (LSD) to rather high (mescaline). Some drugs, like the auditory hallucinogenDiPT, act specifically to distort a single sense, and others have more diffuse effects on cognition generally. Some are more conducive to solitary experiences, while others are positively empathogenic.

Though the natural drugs have a long history of use and usually have an extensive study profile aside from the mortality rates of the drugs, in recent times there has been large production of hundreds of virtually unstudied psychedelics (JWH-018CP 47,497DPTTFMPP2C-T-72C-HMethyloneN-Methyl-N-isopropyltryptamine (MIPT), and AL-LAD to name a few) that may be potentially harmful. This is especially the case with the designer drugs in the psychedelic-amphetamine class. Because of this factor, one should not make the generalization that all psychedelics can not be potentially harmful at normal doses.

From Reticulated Anthropogenesis

Hallucinogenic substances are among the oldest drugs used by human kind, as hallucinogenic substances naturally occur inmushroomscacti and a variety of other plants. Numerous cultures worldwide have endorsed the use of hallucinogens in medicine, religion and recreation, to varying extents, while some cultures have regulated or outright prohibited their use. In most developed countries today, the possession of many hallucinogens, even those found commonly in nature, is considered a crime punishable by fines, imprisonment or even death. In some countries, such as the United States and theNetherlands, partial deference may be granted to traditional religious use by members of indigenous ethnic minorities such as the Native American Church and the Santo Daime Church. Recently the União do Vegetal, a Christian-based religious sect whose composition is not primarily ethnicity-based, won a United States Supreme Court decision authorizing its use ofayahuasca.

The Days Of Beer and Robotussin

The Papers came in really late this morning.  I didn’t start my route until 4:30 A.M..  I wasn’t tired but I didn’t want it to get light so I went as fast as I could.  I didn’t beat the sun though and I began to have some strange feelings.  I remembered a time around 15 or twenty years ago when I lived in the university district in Seattle.  The memory was like one you get with certain smells, like it was way down in the primitive part of the brain.

First Delivery Of the Morning

First Delivery Of the Morning

I was working nights at a nursing home in Bellevue, WA I liked working nights and it felt good to have a job but of course I was still going nowhere, I had no thought of what to do but to get through the next day.  I made a friend with this guy I felt kinda superior to.  He let me decide what we were going to do, how we were going to slide, disappoint make apparent our lack of direction.  We both were white and had Asian girlfriends though I’m not sure what that meant since neither of us dominated our respective relationships in a normal way.  In fact we both ran around like naughty children.  We played video games all the time(super Mario Brothers 3) and we drank a lot.

Beware the guifesen

Beware the guifesen

What hit me so hard as the sun was coming up was the times we drank whole bottles of Robitussin (dextromethorphan).  I remember getting lost in the arboretum, I remember driving around to get more alcohol.  I remember how there just wasn’t anything to do and how desperate I felt being in my own skin.

I had no goals and I just wanted distract myself from feeling like a failure.  Of course at that time I had no Idea that my life would just continue to slide out of control until I ended up homeless.  I had no Idea that I was probably hurting everyone around me.  I didn’t think to actually write or draw or do anything creative I just plugged my self into video games and listened to Public Radio.

Maybe it was the chill in the Tennessee air that reminded my of those days in Seattle.  Being up in the morning after having worked all night.  Being alone in the morning after being alone all night changing bed pads and emptying urinals and catheter bags.  We had a lot of time to sit working nights and I believe I spent a lot of time reading the PDR (Physicians Desk Reference) just desperately looking for a way out.

I think I felt I was totally unique in my baseness. I mean who drinks Robitussin to get off, not to common at the time I don’t suppose.  Then again last night I listened to Nietzsche‘s the Antichrist and I doubt I’ll share that with anyone.  What a wall one builds.  What a strange bunch of distancing maneuvers.

No it’s not like that was then and this is now.  It’s not like there is a narrative here. No nothing so simple as that.  In fact I wander sometimes if anything has really changed.  Perhaps I just misvalued things then, perhaps I do that now.

Isn’t it just a giant megaphone

well just how honest can someone be. I got all these high brow books but I haven’t read them.

O’ I’ve listened to many, many lectures about the books that describe the things I would like to understand

but I am not living that quest. I have not completely let go of all the superfluous trash that engages my mind.

Isn’t life something? I mean what do our brains do with all the repetition. To hear the same idea more than once—the exact same message on every single wavelength we can perceive. LOOK LISTEN AND NEVER STOP.

From them to you and you and you. Isn’t it just a giant megaphone that is both so loud and so subtle that it constitutes everything we experience and see.

people everywhere have no idea about anything they can’t even see.

I know from experience that people don’t know and structures and thoughts are not real. I mean seriously take some acid sometime and try and integrate that reality with the one you are living.

Habit and structure ARE identity. I often hear people tell me that I just am not the kind of person who does those things ,

that they are the kind of person who goes here at this time or I can’t do those types of things.

I wonder what people can do.

Idiots like the people who look for the answer in something genetic are doing what exactly?

Well on the one end they got all the consensual measurements of some physical matter configured in a certain way that leads more or less to large conglomerations of very complicated ordered matter.

The order of DNA is the stuff that keeps replicating itself over time. On the other end there are psychologists and they are into more the reality deforming and expanding notions

not found in those books and those spiritual practices

I believe I need to pursue.

I suppose abject failure in life

could be used as an instrument to

undermine these lofty or insane

ideals I supposedly subscribe to

I’m just a vain selfish person.

It truly is the self that impedes

Understanding.

If selfishness is a problem for me than

It must be a problem for others

My SELF as an individuated island

My self as it’s own originator gives

Me nothing.

If I were truly engaged in a relationship

With myself then where did we come from.

If there is only one self than how can that concept mean any thing.

I could say I’m being myself . but what the hell does that even mean?

But then what a bunch of semantic garbage.

‘If it can be said it does not exist’

What is so weird is that the biggest most infantile lies

Are so readily accepted.

But then almost no ideas need to be true

Because they aren’t contingent on any verification

Evolution or creation are just political ideas.

They are equivalent of the feud between

The Bosnian and they Serbians. “truth” is just an adjective signifying the one right.

Faith is just incipient fascism. Fascism is selfless.
