The "water extraction" method is ineffective in separating diethyl ether from the volatile hydrocarbon liquids/gases in "starter fluid". Our understanding of the literature is that there is no such thing as safe use of volatile hydrocarbon gases: their psychoactive effects are inseparable from nerve and organ damage.]
I've done Ether many many times before, you know, made out of a can of starter fluid, and then 'concentrated' by using the water extraction technique. It's not safe, and not smart, but the trip is amazing, in some ways, and horrifying in many others. I have just finished a report written by 'Brady', who said near the end of his report, that he understood 'it', and coincidently, I know exactly what he is talking about. I have had the same 'hallucinations' every single time I have done ether, and each time, it's as though everything is a distant memory, or de ja vu. Everything seems so familiar. Just last night, I finally completed the story of my hallucination, as though it were a book, and each and every time I do ether, I read a new chapter of it. Each time I've done ether, I go into a deep state of mind, where I feel as though I am out of my body, but not exactly. Just last night, I saw everything I've seen before. Here's pretty much the whole story:
It starts with everything around me going blank, there is this deafening, repetitive ringing, that wont stop. The more I focus on the noise, the louder, and higher frequency it gets. There's about 3 or 4 objects in the 'hallucination', that really cannot be described accurately, even though I've written down everything possible during my trips. There's a strange purple line of sorts, and red dots of sorts. I can't exactly describe them. The red dots come if my trip travels too deep, and I feel as though I'm in danger, it's somewhat like protection. Who the hell knows what the purple line does, it just keeps traveling around and around. I can't really explain more than that. But there was a man, who handed me something in my 'hallucination last night'. He handed me some card of sorts, and said 'Exchoinged' and repeated it over and over again 'And exchoinged, and exchoinged'. I felt as though I was in trouble of some sort, as though someone was giving me this card for getting too close from traveling outside of my body. During the trip, I then concluded that the universe wasn't actually what it seems, that it's all an illusion, somewhat like that matrix. I became worried, and felt trapped, like I was a slave, and life was actually a dream world.
