This is a Story triggered by a trip on Mushrooms and 5APB. Originally I wanted to write a trip report, so this is about the trip and the explanations on why trip reports can sometimes be misleading.

Each psychedelic voyage is unique, as unique as each one of us. All our experiences, which can go back years, influence the trip. Besides this, set and setting... Enough said.

I'm a good physical shape and better nutrition. I take a nice nootropic stack: piracetam (2 g x 3 times a day) multivit, choline, omega 3.

I have been always in pursuit of enlightenment, conciense expansion, improving as human being and been open to experiences that can potentially contribute to this. I have done shrooms, k, LSD, and various RCs. I have never had a bad trip, and I believe is why I have always been in one way or another ready and open to new experiences. I have also had life changing trips, but nothing like the one I will describe next.

Empty stomach. Setting, alone in my flat (pretty comfortable flat to say the least)
00: 140 mg 5 apb, oral.
+60m: once coming up, 2 g mexicans Lemon Tek method (marinated for 30 mins)

I come from a multicultural background, I have lived in more than 6 different countries. And one thing I can summarize about this, is that I can rely on my own strength, adapt and learn. An intense and meaningful relationship of 5 years, where I had to fight hard to make it happen, came to an end recently. It should have ended earlier, but I couldnt, because that would have meant to harm a person I really loved and still is important to me. In the past months, after the 'break/time off' I have lived incredible experiences and met incredible people, also influenced multiple people positively. At the same time, I have been unsure about ending this meaningful and difficult to build relationship. As I have seen how my ex was devastated after I broke up with her I have been dedicating myself to do as much good I can to people around me and I meet. As an example: I found a band (from USA, and I live in Germany) looking for a hotel at 6am in the morning because their manager screw them. I took them in, fed them, had an after party at my place after their gig. At the party, a girl and the drummer fell in love (both young and moneyless), so I used my miles (I travel a lot for work) to have her travel to be with him. I thought: pure love cannot be hindered by something as meaningless as money.

Here comes the trip.

When the warm pleasure and relaxation of the 5 apb was kicking, I took the shrooms. I have been reading The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow, and listening to Alexander Scriabin and I had the movie Baraka about to be played.

All of a sudden it kicked in, like nothing ever before. Pure visuals, absolute bliss and euphoria. Alexander Scriabin believed that by stimulating the senses, humans could find bliss/god/enlightenment. And that was precisely what happened. His music, the scenes of Baraka (guided meditation about human nature) and what I was reading triggered something. It was the usual 'understanding' feeling from mushrooms but exacerbated by the absolute intensity of senses by the 5-APB.

For two hours I was in state of total bliss and enlightenment. There was a lot to learn from that time, which would take long to write. In general was a absolute understanding of how some people are enlightened just like this and work all their life to bring human kind to a next level. But unfortunately 99.9% of us humans live monotonous lives sunk in mundane and meaningless process and activities. How religions, in reality, are structures and process established to do precisely that, but along the way may get corrupted and tergiversed. I also learnt to let go, that in order to grow as a person and improve, one needs to move on and sometime leave that comfort and familiarity that one has been so accustomed to. And that at least for the time being, its ok to finalize this 5 year period I had, living in different countries with this person I I used to love. And that my immediate purpose is to influence and shed some little enligthening light to people that otherwise would never be exposed to this.

It was absolute euphoria and bliss, triggered by senses, but in reality it was a mind euphoria about understanding. And this last sentence is key as a summary of the trip. Euphoria and bliss from understanding and comprehending the world we live in, with its positive and negative things.

After these two hours, I came out quickly, had a cigarette and a beer, and contemplated the lessons learned. I dont smoke, and I never understood the cigarette after sex, but this cigarette and beer was almost like a catharsis of the trip.

In short, Mushrooms are a powerful thing, should not be taken lightly. Experiences are very personal, and trips are a reflection of all these experiences, so there are no absolute trips in mushrooms.
