The Truffles Trip: Psilocybin Tampensis (Circuit 6)

Two friends showed up unexpected with some magic from Holland at a friend's house
We decided to trip with 5 buddies sharing 4 doses, trust me, it's enough for each :p
we had talked about it before, and set and setting were great, trusted friends and a house with a hedged garden
The taste is vile but at least with truffles there's MUCH less to eat than with regular magic mushrooms
and you can't help laughing your ass off with a group of buddies trying to get through that together
We started by playing some Motorstorm on ps3 though I didn't just see the rider, I felt the riding
Like a rollercoaster feeling going from top to bottom of my body constantly, a little too intense
The guys turned off the game for me and spread out exploring the house, garden and their mind
listening laidback to Fatboy Slim's latest Late Night Tales on repeat, a wonderful little cd with mellow classics
I was on the couch, in between circuits six and seven, in the psychic/metaprogramming circuit but more than ready
to delve into the collective unconscious, I've been in-between before and it's not fun, I wanted to remain conscious as
to not worry the rest and to be able to make it a shared experience. The only thing to do is to relax and accept your situation,
which I did. About an hour of gawking at visualisations of all kinds, geometric patterns and mystics, which couldn't be held long
cause they became too intense. I alternated with gawking at the fireplace and the great milkdrop winamp visualisation (damn fractals on shrooms! :p)
Again I the mystic and escapist experienced intense appreciation of the 'normal' after such a bumpy ride unable to control the shifting energy
After an hour or so I finally came down a little and things got really great, I settled down in the sixth metaprogramming/psychic circuit
The senses are heightened, energy can be seen, sound and image can be felt, and the mind is able to go beyond its programmed belief system with ease
energy patterns on floor tiles and walls and curtains unveiled themselves, laughter was easy, fun and intense
it was great fun to stare into this color-changing ball-lamp holding it to your head like you were peering into an ocean of morphing light
rediscovering the simplest of things like stretching your legs and walking on grass and really enjoying it, kicking a soccer ball around
talking deep and philosophically and then histerically laughing at what you just said or realised
laughter set off more laughter and set off more laughter, one haha was enough to erupt a storm of hysterical laughter
communication is felt on a whole other level, not only conveying sound and image, but feeling and meaning
Back on the couch I started getting all kinds of thoughts of the near-future I was worrying about before on the trip
the same day I freaked out earlier in traffic cause it was going soooooooo slow but now all of that was able to be reprogrammed
metaprogramming at will, changing any value in your belief system to a more overall positive value
you take a helicopter hovering above your own belief system and limiting beliefs and are granted a much larger view
I was able to look at many negative opinions and beliefs from multiple positive angles and imprinting a new automatic-response with concentrated joy
For nearly a month after the trip I was seeing everything positive, not worrying at all about outcomes and living in the blissful now without any effort
Another main philosophical current was that concepts take on their own life, Plato's ideal essense, even Leibniz's Monads lingered in my head
the coming down is the greatest of all, you've survived another ride and now you can still enjoy a bit of the view slowing down
talking and laughing about what you saw and experienced, and vowing to wait a while before doing it again :p
