Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

Smashed is not a spiritual experience.  It is smashed.

This is probably a vison 'mother cuddly imagery – removed from physical angles'.  Although it makes no sense

Question " Is this a religious experience? "

Answer "No, it's brain damage"

A description of the experience

TiKHAL – the continuation – Dr Alexander and Ann Shulgin

4-HO-DiPT with 20mg orally

….fifteen minutes, it starts and develops fast – very nice – some leg tremor.  Thirty minutes, I am already well over ++.  Speed of onset is incredible – I could not drive – I feel robbed of voluntary action.  Forty minutes, this could not get any deeper.  Fifty minutes, incredible orgasm.  Fifty five minutes, I struggle to put a name to it, just +++ smashed – with eyes closed very little – I am somewhat chilled – no visual, no sensory…one hour ten minutes, Rubenesque fancy – no sex but back to mother cuddly imagery – removed from physical angles.

One hour thirty minutes, go for two very significant pieces of wood for the fireplace – if all my actions are preprogrammed and I am following commands, then I have no free will – if the command is ‘to have free will’ then I obey.  Whom?  Who?

Why obey an undefined, unheard commander?

Still +++…… One hour forty minutes back to ++, still very much in the grips of lack of self determination.  I could function in the lab but following whose directions?  Is this finally God?  Is this a religious experience?  One hour fifty minutes, down to +.  This has to have been a religious awakening.  Two hours still a little zombie like, but largely down.  Two hours twenty minutes, I am still shaken to the roots by these realisations.  Three hours, completely together
