Background: Ever since 15 years old in school I was hooked reading experience reports, Shulgins work several psychology books and I was absolutely obsessed with psychedelic drugs which all began from having to complete a school task on the dangers on MDMA and up til then I thought of drugs as terrible thanks to the message pushed in school where I live.
I had started to understand that the facts I was given were false and as a result researching psychedelics became my life. Fast forward to 17 years old I was still very interested but never found anyone willing to give or sell me even a single tab of LSD. I started using what mind altering substances were available and began a chronic weed habit and an even worse alcohol one. After I left school, I was broke and going on a pretty bad path of crime smoking tons of weed and blew all my money on alcohol and weed. During a nation wide crackdown on weed growers I ran out of weed money and drinks, I went down a manic sleepless research of mushroom picking as it was shroom season. After 6 hours a day for 6 weeks I stumbled upon an untouched patch with a wet weight of around 3.5 kilograms of Psilocybe Subaeruginosa and Psilocybe Subsectioids. I had an insane trip fixed my life and dosed once a week for over a year.
I went back to work and lived a pretty chill life for a year or 2 drinking responsibly and socially and after a while found all the psychs I was looking for.
Under the Belt: At 20 years of age I had a ton of experience with mushrooms and LSD and a good amount of experience with mdma 2cb dmt mescaline ketamine and various one offs or combos.
Experience: I had recently been experimenting with my 3rd gram of S-Isomer Ketamine (and yes I know its a rare find but my source was legitimate). I had done around 150mg of K the night before a 7 hour drive to a friends 21st party and had an awesome time feeling all nice from the K the night before and an even better time seeing friends from school and having a blast for 2 days on 2cb seeing dolphins and glow worms and all kinds of New Zealand beauty, safe to say I was in a fantastic mood and probably the best mindset I'd been in for a trip in ages and to top it all off whilst my friends had to go to work I had a week off paid as my work was undergoing renovations.
This is where the magic combo comes in, I had been watching the Matrix movies one by one while on Ketamine the previous week and had the Tron movies downloaded too .
T:00. I decide to take 2gs of my P.Subaeruginosa and start the movie Tron once peaking the come up was rather smooth little discomfort and nausea but shrooms are much easier on my body than LSD come ups and the likes and it passed quickly.
T:45. The shrooms are kicking in nicely I'm sitting in my office chair draped in a cozy blanket like an eskimo watching the intro to the modern Tron movie, walls are breathing and I'm seeing mild visuals and colours but nothing too crazy yet I decide to start doing 30mg lines of Ketamine once the movie headed towards entering the arcade machine.
T:1h. I do my first line as a tester to see what the effect will be and after a few minutes I notice the bodyload of the two drugs combine into a super relaxed almost pot cookie body buzz and decide to retreat towards the couch where I lay with just my face poking out of the blanket and the visuals both oev and cev started to pick a lot but at the same time the Ketamine made me super relaxed almost dismissive of the intensity of the visuals. I felt no more alarmed than if I was sober in the same situation which was very nice.
T:1h15 At this point I decide to set a timer on my phone and do 30mg bumps until I reached a more incredible plateau and it did not take long at all maybe 90mg and I was watching Tron and slowly drifting off here and there in the closed eye landscapes which are usually very dark and slow moving on just K but the shrooms seemed to colour everything in and bring life to the imagery and scenes. I was enjoying the show until I just all of a sudden realised I was in the tron universe, with closed eyes I was watching the entire digital world unfold before my eyes as if I was viewing it from a silent helicopter, I watched in awe as computerised simulations gained sentientcy and created their own digital universe invaded by humans who cracked the code and made it in. It made the concept and the reality of the movie seem entirely realistic and almost a certainty that the future of mankind would be interfacing in our own custom made digital realities all with the help of some scientific breakthrough like a more complex videogaming world.
T:2h. At this point I was definitely peaking on shrooms and the K and watching Tron end which since I havent mentioned it before Daft Punk does the soundtrack and its absolutely mind blowing to watch and listen to it on ketamine or shrooms let alone both. I switched the movie over to the 2nd or 3rd Matric movie I cant remember which it was the one where they need the key master to get them into the power grid. I was watching and steadily consuming Ketamine every now and then I also smoked a joint in between movies and it amplified everything a fair amount I now feel like I'm living in a dystopian future ( I knew I wasnt but playing into hallucinations is fun as long as you keep one foot in reality). The movie began where the prequel left off and the atmosphere it gave my room was so weird like a happy sinister with red neons from my PC it felt very odd and warped although the K and Shrooms made me just laugh and examine the odd vibe. I decided to do a few more lines of the K as the shrooms will start declining soon and boy oh boy.
T:3h. This is where one of the most profound visuals of my life happened, I was in a Matrix ship flying over the fields where they harvest humans for energy and I was actually seeing it with my own eyes in full colour detail and everything, watching these huge War of the Worlds looking semi Biological machines as tall at skyscrapers vacuuming up people weirdly enough I was seeing this from a standing point of view as well as from the flying ship and from a birdeye view at the same time I have no idea how to explain it lol but I got a full look behind the curtain and it was mind blowing I was drifting through it almost without realising and then all of sudden thought to myself what in the world am I seeing right now, this level of vivid scenes went on for a little while.
T:3h30 The shrooms are starting to wear off now although I'm still very very high on Ketamine and either another matrix is playing or I am still in the 2nd but I have no idea I decide to ramp up the Ketamine doses and fly forward with another 2 40mg lines spaced out so I dont end up in a k hole, I lie down on my bed and meditate through some very intense futuristic realms and return to the matrix after a fair amount of time. Very high on ketamine still and mixed with the shroom afterglow I literally feel like a cloud I remember thinking if the rest of my life was this feeling Id be content.
T:4h still watching movies but shrooms are mostly faded now and I am just finishing off the K that I had. I return to the movie and slowly drift off to K land while watching some intricate internal landscapes and listening to some music I come back after 40 minutes finish the movie smoke some weed eat a small meal and drift off to sleep while quietly playing music in the background.
All in all this combination was very synergistic I would like to note that having some tolerance to ketamine helped a lot it was very visually incredible and introspective yet at the same time I was completely calm almost like a benzo kind of whatever happens happens and I cant be bothered getting worked up about it calm. I would love to recreate this experience with other movies games or music as the effect that the movies had on the set setting effect and visuals was almost more than the drugs themselves I would like to try this with shows such as altered carbon or something like star wars as it was almost like I stepped out of this reality and into the matrix returning at will to drink some water or anything.
Next day was fine I felt a strong afterglow I was somewhat tired but I think that was more due to going to sleep sometime between 4am and 6am than anything else I had a good breakfast and a small energy drink and I was back to normal which surprised me as with LSD or something I probably would of felt half brain dead for a day or two.
