  • Shackles Of Post Experience
    1,097 words
    Brad turns to his companion Les. He is wearing an oversized t-shirt sporting some trendy pop-culture phrase that has long since lost any reference or significance.

He too is dressed in a peculiar sort of anti-fashion, a fashion so slyly plain and unrecognizable that it defies the very nature of fashion itself. They are both seventeen. '...

  • Music And Drugs
    926 words
    Music and Drugs Beginning with the late 1960's counterculture in San Francisco, music and drugs will forever be inter-linked. Hippie bands such as the Grateful Dead, the Allman Brothers, and Phish are associated with marijuana, mushrooms, and LSD. Modern electronic rave, or club music is associated with MDMA or Ecstasy. When one thinks of rock and roll, sex and drugs immediately come to mind. While the use of drugs is not essential for the creation or performance of all new music, it was certain...
  • Draw Back Of The Drugged Experience
    834 words
    LSD Induced, Yeti, Euphoric Sojourn Drugs can clear away the past, enhance the present; toward the inner garden, they can only point the way. Lacking the temper of ascetic discipline, the drug vision remains a sort of dream that cannot be brought over into daily life. Old mists may be banished, that is true, but the alien chemical agent forms another mist maintaining the separation of the 'I' from the true experience of the One. 1 This passage comes from The Snow Leopard, by Peter Matthiessen. I...
  • L Dopa
    387 words
    Insects have sensors (force-sensitive organs) concentrated in areas near joints, tips of the legs, and near exoskeletal sites attached to muscle tendons. These sensors act as strain gauges to detect compression of the exoskeleton. Using this information, insects recognize environments, regulate walking movements, and astonishingly "remember" stepping patterns and location. Through memory experiments, scientists see that a spider memorizes its own previous walking movements to backtrack to a fly....

    Results Once all our interviews had concluded we re-wrote all the questions that we had asked our four respondents comparing them by using a table.

The normal consciousness that we deal with everyday is only one drop in an ocean of intelligence.

These fruits were revered by man as gifts from the Gods, that allowed us to find a new spiritual and philosophic connection with God. But in the ...
  • Subjective Reports Of Psychedelic Experience
    6,509 words
    Introduction: Throughout human history people have sought experiences that somehow transcend every day life.

Many of these people a...

  • Tuskegee Study
    691 words
    As President Bill Clinton said in his Apology Speech for the Study done in Tuskegee, It was a time when our nation failed to live up to its ideals, when our nation broke the trust with our people that is the very foundation of our democracy.

Our brothers and sisters in my point of view. To see that our society actually damaged and disregard...

  • Ken Kessy And The Merry Pranksters
    4,506 words
    Tom Wolf's "The Electric Kool Aid Acid test" explores the magnificent and mysterious world of an age long gone but definitely not forgotten.
