A description of the experience

Henri Michaux – Miserable Miracle Mescaline

In mescaline time is immense.  The fantastic acceleration of the images and ideas has created it.  Now it is supreme.  The rocket heads of the ideas shoot through it at prodigious speed without affecting it.  This is the kind of time God would inhabit if he existed...

The other time does not touch him.

On that sensational Sunday when I was able to change times, I lived in security.

A new time, a time which does not seem in the least inconceivable but, on the contrary, seems like true time rediscovered.  The incommensurable is natural.  It alone is natural.  Strange as it may be, you have come home.  Of this you are sure.
