2 hits smoked Salvia divinorum (extract)

For a general overview, I have tried other substances such as MJ, lsd, and mushrooms. All of my experiences were mild, and I would say I have a generally weak mind. I am 18 during the experience. I have tried salvia in small doses before, but this was a more intense experience. Setting: I was in my room and it was 4:30 p.m. I was sitting on my bed facing a window with a fan in it to eliminate any suspicious smell from the smoke. My father would be returning home from work in about 45 minutes. This did not bother me in anyway that would effect the experience in a significant way.

Ok here we go. I packed my spoon glass piece with a bowl of the 15x extract I obtained from a local adult store. I did not intend in smoking the whole bowl. I just wanted to avoid trying to pack more while already in the onset of salvia land. I took the first hit and held it in for about 30 seconds. The taste is not very pleasant and does not go down very smoothly, unlike marijuana. As I was taking the second hit I could notice the familiar feelings of the substance. I would describe this as a general physical 'heavy' feeling. I took the second hit and immediately set the pipe and lighter down on my dresser next to me.

The 'heavy' feeling began to intensify and a felt a tingly sensation rush over me. I wouldn't describe it as 'pins and needles' but as if my sense of touch was greatly amplified so it seemed as if even air would bring a sensation. Even sitting on my bed seemed uncomfortable and strange, so I squirmed around trying to reposition myself more comfortably. Air seemed to be more dense and it was as if my consciousness was becoming a part of it. I was more aware of the atomic level, in which everything is connected.

Then this unexplainable gravity kept pulling me forward. It felt like I was being sucked right out of my body! I tried to fight it by leaning back, but the moment I stopped it would continue. A bit shaken, I tried to change my mindset by looking at my surroundings. Everything was fragmented, similar to when I get really stoned. It's like I was watching an old movie, frame by frame. I looked at my dresser and the unexplainable gravity seemed to be in the dresser now.

The dresser started to radiate a weird presence to me. I couldn't help but focus and study it as it pulled me towards it. It seemed to be so much bigger than it did before. It's very existence was so unbelievable to me. It looked like it was made out of plastic, yet I felt as if it was just as alive as I was. I had a hard time registering its existence. It was almost like it was trying to tell me a story about life, existence, consciousness, etc.

I decided it was time to get up and sit somewhere else. I walked over to my computer and sat down on the chair in front of it. It was fairly difficult to do so. I felt weightless, but at the same time heavy. My consciousness had shifted slightly 'out of my head'. Almost as if I was watching myself in third person.

When I sat down the same cycle started. I looked at all the random items on my desk and had a hard time taking in all the information of existence. It was not as difficult this time though. I opened up a music playing program and played some trance. I opened up the visuals and watched the light dance with the music. The light flying across the screen and the music had the same odd presence. It felt as if the light was actually there. Sure it really was on my screen, but it almost seemed as if my screen was 3d instead of 2d. And the music seemed to present a more powerful existence as well. When I closed my eyes, I could vaguely imagine the sound as shapes and colors. I enjoyed this for about 5 minutes, until the main effects wore off. For the next 10-15 minutes I felt a bit strange but nothing significant.
