Background

A description of the experience

Alexander Shulgin – PIHKAL – A Chemical Love Story

With 20mg of 2C-B

The drug effect first became known to me as a shift of colours towards golden and rose tones.  Pigments in the room became intensified.  Shapes became rounder, more organic.  A sensation of lightness and rivulets of warmth began seeping through my whole body.  Bright lights began pulsing and flashing behind my closed lids.  I began to perceive waves of energy flowing through all of us in unison.  I saw all of us as a gridwork of electrical energy beings, nodes on a bright pulsating network of light.  Then the interior landscape shifted into broader scenes.  Daliesque vistas were patterned with eyes of Horus, brocades of geometric design began shifting and changing through radiant patterns of light.  It was an artist’s paradise – representing virtually the full pantheon of the history of art.
