Have been reading about hallucinogenic cacti (peyote etc)

Apparently you vom loads but then experience a life changing trip in which your sense of self is temporarily removed.

Reckon this is the answer to creative dislocation?

Do mushrooms instead  - no vomming. 

Can get them legally in the Dam. 

 

I believe mushrooms are illegal there now but truffles still an option. But I worry about trying it in unfamiliar territory and falling in a canal. 

I am actually really keen to try this part of myself but the only friends I know who would be up for it are people I wouldn't want to encourage to take risks with mental health.

truffles are just shrooms rebranded. 

there are no hallucinogenic truffles. 

Small word of warning. Many moons ago my m7 Dave did some truffles. First the fella sat opposite him grew a beak, then the table started moving, then Dave grew wings, then there was a choir which started beautifully but very soon started chanting satanic curses at him. At some point in the evening he had to dodge a holly bush which was made out of chainsaws. People glided by him with no feet. Apparently Dave wanted to return home but came to the realisation that his house was a stack of cards which was going to blow away in the wind revealing monsters. As the alternative to that was certain death, he went home anyway.

Don't fvck around with this stuff lightly

Clergs, I'll join you for a fried brekkers with some magic 'shrooms.

"the fella sat opposite him grew a beak, then the table started moving, then Dave grew wings.." etc etc

With all that sh*t going on in his life, I'm not surprised he took 'shrooms to escape from it all.

Hm just before reading this I recalled a kid drowning himself up here while on them. Did Dave feel any beneficial effects?

Dux I enjoy this idea.

Clergs, you should watch Simon Amstell's latest Netflix stand up show. He went and did this.

I'd watch a Netflix special on Clergs and Dux taking hallucinogenics. Maybe you should pitch it to them?

It takes approximately 40 years to grow a decent sized peyote from seed. The san pedro is faster growing but less potent. 

It's much easier to just buy the mescaline in powder form off the internet.

But isn't that also giantly illegal? If I'm going down its not going to be for that.

And the most famous account of the experience is Adlous Huxley's Doors of Perception

 

"The man who comes back through the Door in the Wall will never be quite the same as the man who went out. He will be wiser but less sure, happier but less self-satisfied, humbler in acknowledging his ignorance yet better equipped to understand the relationship of words to things, of systematic reasoning to the unfathomable mystery which it tries, forever vainly, to comprehend."

Simon Amstell did this to combat depression. Think it was Ayahuasca from memory. 

Would be great to lose sense of self, but when I have tried this sort of thing I haven't. Either collapsed with laughter or became terrified.

see I feel already on the cusp of these beliefs maybe it would just turbo bum me out forever

right no I am going to insist on a trip to Amsterdam for my birthday

NO REASON DARLING BUT I LOVE WHAT YOU'VE DONE WITH YOUR SNAKES FOR FINGERNAILS

I would love to try microdosing but sadly not feasible in our uptight pseudo-Victorian world
