pretty much this
I feel that everyone has a right to privacy. That means everyone has the right to put chemicals in themselves, or not, and its no one elses business. Also it means that everyone has a right to not have to be hassled by fucked up people
cuz thats an invasion of privacy, without consent.
Personally I love em, but dont feel I need to do them all the time, and i feel most comfprtable doing them in the comfort and privacy of home. At parties, it can be fun in the right mood, at the right party. If no one plays Cities of the Future
I was into electronic music before i ever started experimenting, all i need is the tunes, i love it sober or not. Different substances can show different ways of looking at familiar things, tracks that I heard til i got sick of em took on a whole new vibe via psychedelics. Which cna be good, if you feel like youre getting bored of the music in general or disillusioned that nothing sounds good, its like a reboot.
The whole tribal ritual recreation idea doesn't mention drugs in the recipe, just, dancing beyond fatigue to repetitive rhythm. Again though, drugs can add a new POV to what was considered been-there-done-that.
I feel that responsible mind alteration is each of our birthright as creatures possessing a mind to alter. Its each of our inalienable right to choose for ourselves, and its up to each of us to decide what exactly is meant by responsible use.
Sometimes I just want to get FUBARed crazy and go wild, and i feel that so long as im not forcing anyone to take care of intoxicated me, or bothering anyone, or otherwise making my state of mind obvious where iits not welcome (outside of places like a party, where its pretty much a given that drugs are being done, any party not just music, and just by being there among that, youre consenting to deal with intoxicated ppl), no one has the right to even ASK if im high or not let alone dictate to me what they thnk I should or shouldnt do to my brain chemistry.
I do highly advocate education especially regarding potentially harmful interactions, and things like HPPD and serotonin syndrome, and of course, what the drugs are, what their fx are, what the average duration is, general info on how to spot fake or cut drugs, and all that.
But do I feel that drugs are necessary? Well, they are, if a person wants to stay alive, there has to be chemcals affecting consciousness somehow, somehwere, the distinction between externally sourced versus endogenously produced chemicals is arbitrary IMO. Life is intoxication, sobriety means youre dead.
But is it necessary to experience a trance party in fullness to take drugs? Hell no, Ive been to more parties and jsut
or even just
sober and had a great time. But yet again, drugs allow a perception that isnt easy to duplicate wihtout them.
Have fun be safe, dont forget to be sober now and then cuz its crazy too, above all be happy! If youre not, maybe its time for a change.
