So f'd up. A bunch of us were watching some demented animation with Royskopp in the background, and the music started to really well with a human face loosing layer after layer of tissue. Needless to say, Alex Grey came up in the conversation.

I was going to check out his community in the catskills one summer, because a good firend of mine's family has a house up there, but it didn't happen. I would say I had better things to do, but then, who has better things than spinning around at incredible speeds in circles via cray meachines!

Mmm... cults...

I love this site. Seeing posts like this make me feel like I'm definately using the right software :wink:
15 years, never had a bad one, wouldn't see the point of being here if I'd never tried it... And as Bill Hicks says, it should be MANDATORY to take it at least once in your life.
Happy Birthday Al, we will always be in debt to you

But i'm well aware that this can be destroyed quicker then it was built.
good poin hoffmann2k, I feel the same, experience I did in my teenage with muschrooms/acid opend me thousand new doors over myself and my surrounding, the challenge for me was to realize quickly enough (before going fucked up) that I have to be able to keep those doors open without need of substances, if not as you say all this can be destoyed quicker that it was built.
I mean, dreaming is good and necessary to have a reason to live on, but I feel really important to keep my feet on earth.
We become adults in the meantime, don't we?

all the best and take care
