Trip-heads are generally wazzocks. You'd think enlightenment would make you less wazzocky, not more
in a forum that's, at least notionally, not averse to discussing the meaning, or otherwise, of the power plant (in it's distilled form or otherwise) experience.
All right, one might think the whole thing's ridiculous, but equally, one might question the wisdom of summoning up one's ancestors in a ritual form. What would they tell you, apart from that you should have gone to med school?
Sorry to be facetious. For what little it's worth, I neither believe nor disbelieve in the occult; what I don't think is that anyone who's brave enough to experiment with this kind of material is wasting their time. It's just that I have trouble with the way some of the ideas are expressed, on occasion.
From what I understand of them, spiritual practices are more of an art than a craft, so there's no right or wrong way to go about them. To suggest otherwise, to be moving towards the argument that how one's practices benefit society is in some indicative of their general worth seems a bit like saying it's better to be a doctor than a painter. And perhaps it is. But who knows?
What I object to is people taking a pasting for expressing fairly modest opinions, on the basis that Poster X has 'been doing it longer'. What if Poster X has been doing it wrong? What's happened to the element of doubt that, surely, must be in there if one's planning on impacting on society in general?
