This is a point I would like to take up.and others to tune into the cosmos.
Many Erowid reporters recommended cleansing oneself before tripping on anything, which we are meant to take as meaning no filthy meat in the body's temple, when it wasn't recommended explicitly. It's also beneficial to be near water, they say. Arid climes invite the Chitinous Ones, no-one wants that. I think there's magical thinking involved and it isn't true at all.
Because having dwelt solely in the meatspace for some time now I have found that LSD has a new complexion. I would say I was more attuned to the cosmos than in earlier salad- and potato-fuelled excursions. The words of Elizabeth Odell came to me as my eyes described separate orbits earlier this Summer:
Flat outstretched upon a mound
Of earth I lie; I press my ear
Against its surface and I hear
Far off and deep, the measured sound
Of heart that beats within the ground.
And with it pounds in harmony
The swift, familiar heart in me.
They pulse as one, together swell,
Together fall; I cannot tell
My sound from earth's, for I am part
Of rhythmic, universal heart.
The Earth is forgiving of the carnivore and rewards him with such sublime moments borne of a quickness of mind. The lean, efficient form of the tiger or lion is another perk.
But the Earth is less sympathetic toward the herbivore, rewarding it only with safety in numbers and dullness of wit. Humans are unique in that we can choose to deny our nature, but don't deceive yourself into thinking it is good to do so.
