the man who sold the world

I think I saw this “live” (as in when it was originally broadcasted), many years ago. I was ten.

I’m not that old, not quite thirty. But I really feel it when I hear the sentiment “today I learned that the guy from the Foo Fighters used to be in this band called Nirvana,” rather than the other way around.

I’m back in college and the other day I hear this car blaring some Nirvana song. Heart Shaped Box, I think. I remember thinking, All right, someone as old as me, and turning to see who got out of the car. It was some fresh out of high school girl.


emergent properties of reality using psilocin microscopy

Interesting little article delving into one of my interests: psychedelics. I’ve never used them personally, but I remain fascinated by descriptions and reports of those who have seen the other side. I’m not a true “psychonaut,” but I’m a consumer of their writings.

These substances seem to spark interesting ideas and concepts, and true psychonauts think in very interesting ways.

Specifically, the author is trying in this article to link the visuals common to experiences with the “magic” mushroom, namely “breathing” walls and items, with the underlying truth of reality as viewed through the lens of quantum physics. Admittedly, I know very little about quantum physics, having what is quite possibly an entire wrong and overly simple overview of the topic, despite the scant reading I’ve done.

Good read, though. I’ll probably check back on this website when I have more time.
