Other states of awareness. Sounds exotic. This is not an article that scares you of smoking weed and other kinds of stimulants.
Stimulant or others kinds of substances open the door for an exciting new world. A world in which all things that bothers you do not exist.
I read an article and then a wikipedia page about getting yourself into other states of awareness. Getting yourself into other states of awareness could happen when the brain pumps certain enzymes that effects the states of the body and mind. In a way that the person gains sharpness in some abilities, others get clouded.
Getting back to the article that I was talking about, it says that the hippies were consuming LSD and other drugs to explore the other states of the mind. The person who consume these drugs get into a states where things that he or she sees or feels get distorted. Things that this person usually afraid of trying, will become a habit when he or she gets in this state.
In an article about the same topic, it says that the maker of SpongePop came up with the idea of the show when he was in collage. He was consuming weed to come up with some of the episodes. Which make sense. Who would come up with a sponge as a hero. In addition to this, there is an episode where there is a sea behind them, while they are living inside a sea.
I was looking over the internet for a better description of what people feel when they smoke weed and couldn’t find a person who put it better than the one below:
“It is more than 15 minutes now. The time seems to have slow down. If you have successfully recognized the effect, you will notice how there is a slow transformation of your active brain consciousness. As if it has caused you to enter a surreal world of alternate reality, where you have deeper thoughts about the minutest of things, where you connects the seemingly improbable dots intuitively, where you get a deeper understanding of yourself and you start acknowledging the small things in your life. You might wonder, why have you not felt so empathetic towards your surrounding earlier, how could you possibly miss it, it was all here. You are right, you missed it because you were busy and didn’t have time to look into these seemingly petty small things. Now that you decided to smoke weed with your friends, you might very well look into your surrounding with the new found perspective you just had.”
In my experience, I never tired it. But I know people who tried it.
One person says this:
“I know one person who is allergic to fish, when she got drunk she ate fish and she didn’t know. The next day she was suffering as a result of this.”
Another person, says this: “I am shy person and have a bit of difficulty talking to girls. One time, I was invited to try pot in a party with few friends. I tried it, and the next thing I know that I was making out with a girl.”
In other words, stimulants gives you courage and other abilities that you might lack in real life.
