Ether Reality

I was in my friends car on the side of the street at about 11:30 at night. We had been huffing the ether for about 15 minutes when I decided it wasn't enough, I needed to do more, it wasn't working well enough. So I took the rag and poured about 15 good sized drops on the rag and huffed as hard as I could for about two minutes.

Near the end of my huffing frenzy my vision started to turn black and I started to stare at these traffic lights ahead of me. A flash of light appeared and my vision slowly started to disintegrate into nothingness. In about 10 seconds I slipped into another dimension and reality was gone. MY body was gone, and only my consciousness was there inside a black room with a sphere of light in the center. I thought I had died and I was stuck with my consciousness staring at this room forever, I was convinced it was my hell, so I tried to escape.

I raised my arm but when I did a series of medium sized grey fluffy boxes (that's the best I can describe them) followed my arm and one of these boxes appeared above my arm and kept it from moving anywhere. I panicked and turned my head and a myriad of patterns and lights followed my vision, changing each time I looked. I was stuck. I was worried because I had no Idea what was happening and I thought I was stuck there forever, and what was worse was that everything in my sight kept changing, so it was impossible to figure this place out. Then the sphere of light appeared again and these amazing patterns started dancing around it.

Then I heard a voice say '91 x...x...x...x...' (we had the radio playing the whole time, it was a radio announcer for 91.1-san diego-) and then these white lines started to appear (coincedentally a huge x appeared from these white lines) and I noticed the head of the seat in front of me. Then reality started unfolding back into place. Things started popping up from nowhere and in about 30 seconds I realised where I was again. I started yelling and going on about my experience and how blown my mind was. My friends said that I was just sitting there for like 5 minutes not doing anything and then I snapped out of it and thats when I started yelling, very confusing for all of us. It's kinda freaky but definitely life changing.
