more "no duh".

In a controlled study with an active alternate, group which got psilocybin reports mystical experiences:

Two months later, 24 of the participants filled out a questionnaire. Two-thirds called their reaction to psilocybin one of the five top most meaningful experiences of their lives. On another measure, one-third called it the most spiritually significant experience of their lives, with another 40 percent ranking it in the top five.

Seems like yesterday. Did not do Psilocybin but did do LSD and mescaline; great stuff. Definetely try it at home not at the office though; LSD did not do much for me (blue barrels for afficiandos) but mescaline was an eight hour laughing time.

That was many years ago.

Now days waking up every morning is a spiritual experience... :)

There are a couple of several hour periods in my life that I look at as cusps. The evening I did 'shrooms is one of those, a realization that the music we had on was having too strong an effect on me and I could just get up and change the CD sounds mundane and like the sort of thing that stoners write down and ask "why was this profound?" the next morning, but it was a complete cusp in making me understand that happiness is a choice.

Nowadays... well... had a discussion recently, "hey, we've been planning on getting together and getting stoned for the longest time, but we either end up doing something else when we get together or we're too busy with other stuff". I feel like the anti-Afroman, and it ain't gonna change any time soon.
