DOSE:
3.5 g oral Mushrooms (plant material)

BODY WEIGHT: 150 lb


I was all alone, bored, nothing to do. I took 3.5 grams of mushrooms with the intent of having a self revelation. Instead, I had a wierd conclusion that time is a circle. Pretty fucking wierd. Here is what I came up with while I was having the trip, someparts make sense, others kind of don't.

Do you understand that the future is fake, there is no co-existance to the present moment, except for an alternate dimension. The only moment that exists is the present. If you narrow down the actual time of a moment, you go beyond seconds, beyond halves of seconds, and even further, you realize that the amount of time in so-called 'moment' is much like trying to draw a perfect circle. You simply cannot draw a perfect circle.

When you draw a 'perfect' circle, it must have no edges or straight parts. If this is so, then a circle cannot be drawn because the edge would dissapear, much like time. Moments in time are infinetly small, but at the same time, are the only real existing time. The mind is too slow to realize this, which is why people worry about the future. People must realize that there is no future, like there is no point further on the edge of a circle. The future becomes the present moment when time progresses, much like when you move along the edge of a circle. There is no other point on the 'circle' when you are at a point. Because points are actually infinitley small, the circle does not exist at all. Because of this conclusion, time does not exist either. If every human was to realize this, we would enter the void, and meet our creator.
