You might want to refresh my memory.

    There's a forum on it too I used to post there, many moons ago, when I was into all this stuff.

    Funny, cos' I'm writing a script about all this dream stuff now, based on many experiences I had during that period when I was experimenting a lot, and the metaphors are SO OBVIOUS now. It's like, wow. I read way too much into things back then. But saying that, then there were other dreams I had that were just so out there, it's still impossible to decipher them.

    I highly recommend reading Jung, if you haven't already.

This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

      • Damnit Zach! I just read this... Tbh I just assumed it would have been up here before I got here anyway.
        Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

        • Lol - since Derp has been spouting his smoking mantra, I've been casually mentioning to smoker friends (who want to give up) that all they need to do is switch to tobacco.

          You should see how their faces light up with tentative hope. I feel like Tywin Lannister, saving the city...

          • Yo: My dreams were also a jumbled mess before I learned to decipher them, I think it's just built in experience and that feeling of "ah... that".

            I've read some Jung, but very little. I'll read more soon.

            diene had a good point, with dream logs out in the open, and opinions from others, it'd probably help, getting various perspectives. I had an awesome experience that I'll write this evening when I get home.

            One of us, one of us, one of us!

            I think, everyone should smoke a little tobacco, to get things moving in the right direction. How much you smoke, depends on how much you need to.

              • So how are American Spirit cigs, so far as those things go? That's what I buy; I've never tried rolling my own.

                Comment


                • I buy the Organic full flavors, they are pretty dang good. I should google around and see if theres an even better brand since American Spirit is owned by R.J Reynalds. I only smoke 1-2 a day though and its all i need.


                  Dude had one of the worst dreams in awhile and was able to wake myself up out of it. Started off innocently enough, finding a cave that was insanely huge with electricity running through it. I was with four people and we all had flash lights. Then same dickhead said that they came was home to two demons and then shit went downhill. There was a house on top of the cave that we got chased into by super demonic fucks and somehow one guy was like a wizard and new spells and poured wax all over the floor. Disnt really stop the demons and they were able to curse people in the room who got all crazy. I broke out through a window and started running full blast but then stopped, said to myself that this is a dream and slapped myself awake.

                  Doesnt really paint the picture of how fucking dark this dream was but it was awful. Was also one of those where your constantly running and feel exhausted when you wake up. So glad i was able to recognize i was dreaming.

                  • I like the Nat Sherman MCDs. The paper is slightly sweet - might not be everyone's taste but it adds to the experience.

                    I've found tobacco to be a lot like coffee - a nice pick me up, something not to take part in before bed (I've learned that 7pm is too late if I want to be asleep at a decent hour), and not necessary much of the time. Unfortunately, evening is when I want them...

                    Zach, your dreams are like some terrible B movie.

                    • So I remembered two of my dreams last night! But I don't remember them in their entirety so it's pretty incoherent. Derp--do you really want people dumping their dreams in your journal? If not, we could start a new "dream journal" thread. Otherwise, if you really want everyone to post their dreams in your journal, I'll post mine later.

                      I remembered those dreams because I took more kratom last night. Only 2 grams this time, but I definitely felt it. I was going to go to bed but ended up going out instead. I felt very unpleasant while I was out. I went to a bar, and the entire time, the noise in the bar felt amplified in my head. That and I felt slightly sick the entire time too. I wonder what kratom's mechanism of action is? I just looked it up quickly, and some of the alkaloids it contains are mu- and delta-opioid receptor agonists. Anyway, opiates always make me feel nauseated and so does kratom, apparently. I'm going to take it again tonight for the dreams. But I'm going to reduce the dose to 1.5 grams.

                        I tried the Nat Sherman MCDs too, while in Vegas. Smoked through a pack in no time. They were tasty as hell.

                        Dear Derpapedia:

                        Can tobacco supplementation requirements be adequately achieved through the act of hookah smoking?

                        Thanks in advance :3
                        Yup, and without all the weird shit on the filters and tar build up too!

                        I'm all for that!

                        I think dysphoria is a normal reaction to opiates, it happens in a lot of people, I would think because of balances between dopamine, serotonin, noradrenaline, oxytocin and GABA, but it's said to disappear with continued low dose usage, probably due to tolerance. So, if you're going to continue with opioids, definitely cut the dose down if you feel nausea and somnolence.

                        Unfortunately, when delving deeper into research on opiates, such as morphine, there is a lot of conflicting data, such as whether or not they're neurotoxic, or neuroprotective.

                        Morphine had one major effect, which was to increase the accuracy of responding on the choice reaction time task, at every assessment. Morphine produced some sporadic effects in other tests and an increase in subjective calmness. Dextropropoxyphene impaired performance on choice reaction time and picture recognition. These data show that oral morphine may enhance performance in some measures of cognitive function, whereas dextropropoxyphene (in usual therapeutic doses) seems more likely to cause impairment. Neither opioid has substantial effects on cognition and psychomotor function compared with lorazepam.

                        • I've been thinking about how our current level of prosperity is subjective, and is in fact, not prosperous, and very detrimental. It comes with serious environmental, cultural and even existential cost. Negative effects of industrial processes include pollution, climate change, industrial warfare, police states, prison states, etc;

                          Our educational systems have had to change from a humanistic, reflective studies aimed at developing deep thinking humane people into analytic and cheap vocational studies without any interest in human character. The cost of this educational change, I believe, is that we have a less intelligent society, which is less efficient.

                          When you look at old societies like Greece, their prosperity was unrivaled, but this is how it's subjective.

                          We've become a society dying of cancer, obesity, and ecstatically tweeting about it, while everything is crumbling around us. Decay.

                            LOVE (III)
                            by George Herbert


                            Love bade me welcome, yet my soul drew back,
                            Guilty of dust and sin.
                            But quick-ey'd Love, observing me grow slack
                            From my first entrance in,
                            Drew nearer to me, sweetly questioning
                            If I lack'd anything.

                            "A guest," I answer'd, "worthy to be here";
                            Love said, "You shall be he."
                            "I, the unkind, the ungrateful? ah my dear,
                            I cannot look on thee."
                            Love took my hand and smiling did reply,
                            "Who made the eyes but I?"

                            "Truth, Lord, but I have marr'd them; let my shame
                            Go where it doth deserve."
                            "And know you not," says Love, "who bore the blame?"
                            "My dear, then I will serve."
                            "You must sit down," says Love, "and taste my meat."
                            So I did sit and eat.
