P.S. Is there a correlation between recreational experimentation with substances and the openness to Bitcorns, or are those substances just more wide spread these days due to pop media references and documentaries?

I'd imagine there's a significant overlap between people open minded enough to use psychedelics and people crazy enough to get into bitcorn.

In my younger and more vulnerable years I tried many psychedelic substances.

I for one would never, ever touch anything of that nature. I've known quite a few people who set off on a trip and never really came back.

It's one thing to blow your tits off with amphetamines, it's quite another to start meddling with your infinitely delicate brain chemistry.
Did they have any prior conditions? Did they mix the substances with something else? What exactly did they take?

Generally, LSD, Psilocybin, DMT and Mescaline are among the most safe substances that you could ever ingest, even when compared to alcohol and tobacco.

However, there are substances that are being sold off as LSD and whatnot that are quite something else. They have similar effects, but can actually be lethal or otherwise problematic. In the 60s a substance called DOM was sold off as LSD. However, it took far longer for its onset, so people took more thinking it was a dud. It also lasted much longer than LSD and didn't really have an "upper ceiling" (LSD stops within 12ish to 24 hours regardless of dosage), DOM on the other hand lasts longer the more you take. 10mg lasts for upwards of 30 hours nonstop, and people took 20 to 40mg of it (because idiots put 20mg on a blotter while 5mg was already a pretty heavy dose) and then got hospitalized.

Then there's other stuff that can literally kill you if you take just a little bit too much, which also gets sold off as LSD.

But when it comes to "classic" psychedelics, they're as safe as it gets.

If you wanted to overdose on mushroom (lethal dose) you'd have to ingest about 5 kilograms of fungal matter. And you would die way before the substance could kill you just by the sheer amount of matter that you'd be ingesting to get anywhere close. Heck, you'd be tripping so hard that you wouldn't even be capable of eating any more to get to a point where you could die, be it from the substance itself or the amount of "food".

So other than taking the wrong substance without realizing it and overdosing, the only potential issues are mixing substances with problematic interactions, or already being mentally unstable and then tripping in a bad environment at a bad time.

These substances aren't toys and it's important to be mentally at ease before, during and for a day or two after the event. They're also quite powerful tools though, and there's quite a body of successful research going on into treating depression, PTSD, addictions (tobacco, opiates, alcohol), anxiety and the like right now. The only reason this research isn't further than it is right now is because of the classification as Schedule I thanks to Murrica's political games a few decades ago.

Psychedelics in general just amplify what is already going on inside you.
Hence if you're having a hard time with life, then that will be amplified to extreme and potentially life-like levels with all your insecurities and problems taking "real" shapes depending on the dosage that you've ingested.

As horrible as the experience might be, it can actually, in select cases, be good for the person as it forces them to confront their problems.

So far I didn't have anything anywhere near as extreme as the horror stories that I've read on the internet though, and I can't imagine myself ever having any of those experiences either.
But I've also made it a point to remember what I did prior to the experience, which takes off the edge. I'm also quite curious as to what is going to happen during the moment of death, since it's quite obviously just a fairly tale that humans tell themselves for the lulz. And then, with a high enough dosage you lose control anyways and at that point it doesn't really matter what happens since you just fully dissolve in what is happening (if anything at all).

P.S. Is there a correlation between recreational experimentation with substances and the openness to Bitcorns, or are those substances just more wide spread these days due to pop media references and documentaries?

It's almost impossible to predict where people's demon's might take them. I watched a guy leap through a (closed) window, and then proceed to gnaw a guy's thumb off who was trying to help him. Dude was an experienced psychonaut too, but ayahuasca delves deeper than most.

At the same time, my spinal column lit like a rocket and propelled me straight into god's eye. A few millennia and hundreds of death/rebirth cycles later, I woke up. Like WOKE woke.

Bitcorn was a no-brainer "risk" after that! What's the worst that can happen?  Grin


A second round after the fact? Tongue

I smoked DMT while peaking on LSD once and I'm not sure I would've even been capable of moving to jump out of a window if I wanted to. And on "physically functional" dosages I've always been very capable of thinking my actions through prior to taking them out. I'm really curious as to how people lose control or if it's more of a denial kind of thing. I've experimented dozens of times and never got anywhere close. The dumbest thing I ever did was shake a tree while on a cliff, slipping up would've been bad. But that's not precisely substance related and something that kids would do regardless. I mean, if you could literally shake a gigantic tree, you just would, period (it's easy to shake them at the top).

I'm not talking death of course, they just wound up as vacant shadows. I dunno if there was something underlying in each case, but the eagerness people have to upend their brains is a little befuddling to me. You have no idea what effect they'll have on you yourself until you're too far gone to do anything about it. I don't believe it's something to be trifled with myself.

The way I see it is, I supposedly only get one life and want to experience as much of it as possible. Of course that demands caution as well, but I've spent roughly a decade researching all sides of the story for every substance that I've ever tried and ultimately concluded that the risk/reward ratio for (some) psychedelics was in the favour of taking them, at least for me. I've made sure that I knew what to expect to the best I could and started small with no obligations for the coming days. At the end of the day, it was like Cannabis turned up to 11.

I do so miss Mescaline, haven't seen it around sine the mid 90's. There's nothing like laughing for 9 hours straight to peak the spirit if not really hurt the jaw mustles. Cheesy

LSD on the other hand I can't do again last 2 times almost ended up in death, first time for someone else and the last time for myself.

Interesting read I thought. As most thing's that come out of this rag..extremely well written.

https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2018/04/16/a-sidelined-wall-street-legend-bets-on-bitcoin

Lets go Bitcoin.

------
Daily look through the long lens. Two large structures readily apparent..the first from the ATH to what has been the yearly low. The second smaller oscillation from the "fishing hole" to now. These are showing resonance imho. I think a pretty decent leg up is in the making on a short to medium time frame.


A third attempt at this arbitrary resistance line. Each wave is a fractal of the previous one and the downward impulse is fading imho.

Oh god yes, I love Mescaline. Unfortunately it's too expensive and rare to get as HCl and I'm not too keen on eating pounds of hellishly bitter cacti. One can only dream that the renaissance of research in this field will make it more accessible by the time I'm an old fuck.

I'm really curious, how do people end up almost dead on LSD though? Other than Mescaline it was the most lucid substance that I've ever taken, even at higher doses.

I'd say then your priorities are backwards. Drugs are only fun if you've got your shit more or less together. Otherwise they're like alcoholism, which is, misery to say the least. I mean sure, nobody knows what the fuck they are doing and what the hell is going on in life (mostly), but there are times, places and doses for just about anything in life.


Without trying to pry too hard, have you done this constructive analyzing/talking about whatever the fuck happened in your life kind of stuff? I haven't really heard of any depression cases where there wasn't something going on at some point in their life (e.g. just a naturally occurring chemical imbalance).

Genetically inherited, unfortunately. 4 generations now.
That sucks to hear. Let's hope the singularity and Crispr-9 will sort you out in your lifetime.
