hallucinogenic shopping list

so i have an interesting shopping list. a list of things i’d like to get my hands on, but they would not be easy, as most of them are illegal in the united states. weird how one thing can be legal in one region of the world yet illegal in another. but that’s an aside. back to the matter at hand. my wish list is, as follows:

  • mescaline : aldous huxley and hunter s. thompson both describe experiences that i need to live through to understand.
  • peyote : i must have my jim morrison desert hallucination experience.
  • absinthe : the first stuff i had was the ‘beginners’ version. i gotta try the more potent stuff.
  • psilocybin mushrooms : tried them once, they were enough fun to want to try again. these will be easier to get my hands on than anything.

i think that’s about it for now. why oh why do i want these things? well, as i have said before, i am interested in altered states. hallucinogenic drugs are an excellent way to plunge oneself into an altered state. if a, then b. logic is amazing this way. or you can take aldous huxley’s perspective:

“If we could sniff or swallow something that would, for five or six hours each day, abolish our solitude as individuals, atone us with our fellows in a glowing exaltation of affection and make life in all its aspects seem not only worth living, but divinely beautiful and significant, and if this heavenly, world-transfiguring drug were of such a kind that we could wake up next morning with a clear head and an undamaged constitution-then, it seems to me, all our problems (and not merely the one small problem of discovering a novel pleasure) would be wholly solved and earth would become paradise.”

or even hunter s. thompson’s famous point of view:

“I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone, but they’ve always worked for me.”

my opinion, to continue, is this: life is short. i find drugs to be an interesting experience. life is experience. end of story.

One thought on “hallucinogenic shopping list

  1. I drank a bottle of sebor absinthe over the space of 9hours a couple of new years ago and it didn’t do much for me in the way of altered states. It did, however, get me ratarse pissed.
    Tried the Shrooms on holiday in Amsterdam. Kinda fun but I think the experience would have been more enlightening if I hadn’t been sitting in a bar full of drunken english people on a stag night.
    Peyote is still on my list of things to try before I die, as is mescaline.
    Here’s one for you to give a go at if you’d like to experience the total loss of spacial awareness and the conciousness of an alien entity- it’s called Salvia divinorum and apparently is only illegal in louisiana in the states. Look it up. I’d reccomend doing it. But don’t just take my advice. Research it before you go trying it.
