Think 4 Yourself and Question Reality

Psychedelic Poetry

June 30, 2011

ceremony and ritual: a story…

OUR MINDS HAVE BEEN FUSED INTO ONE SHIMMERING
COLONIAL ANIMAL…
FLOWING IN THE
CURRENTS OF THE MUSIC…
adrenaline, seratonin,synapses on fire !

IN THE SHADOWS,TORCHES FLICKER IN THE BREEZE.
THE ORACLE BEGINS TO SPEAK,
FEEL THE HEAT…
adrenaline,serotonin,synapses on fire!

WE DANCE OUTSIDE OF THE TRADITIONAL
REALM OF TIME AND SPACE.
THE CROWD ERUPTS IN OUTBURSTS OF FREE-FORM MOTION
AS THE INTENSITY OF THE JAM PEAKS
adrenaline,serotonin,synapses on fire!
MY BODY IS TRANSFORMED INTO A PINBALL AND
I RICCOCHET AROUND THE SPECTRUM
ARENA BOUNCING OFF THE FLASHING LIGHTS.
A CROWD OF DEADHEADS
SURROUND ME INTENT ON TELLING ME STUPID JOKES…
THEY JUST…know… THAT I WILL LAUGH…
adrenaline,serotonin,synapses on fire!

GOD…THE ‘BIG G’ WALKS RIGHT UP TO ME AND SHAKES MY HAND. HE ANSWERS ALL THE REALLY BIG QUESTIONS…
OF COURSE, BY THE NEXT MORNING I FORGOT THEM ALL!
NO PROBLEM ….
THEY WERE PROGRAMMED DIRECTLY INTO MY DNA
AND I’LL KNOW THEM UNTIL
THE END OF TIME……..

THANK YOU DR. ALBERT HOFFMAN

This was written after attending a Grateful Dead concert in JFK Stadium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I was sitting up above the crowd in the bleachers and could see the dancers move more enthusiastically during peaks of the music… less motion during gentle passages… as the dynamics of the improvization ebbed and flowed, the dancers moved accordingly… like sea anemones moving in the currents of the ocean… I also mention the Spectrum in Philadelphia… It has many blinking advertisements for Atlantic city casinos in the area where refreshments were being served…

I've been facinated by rainbow Squiralism for years. Squares rotated and resized.

I've been facinated by rainbow Squiralism for years. Squares rotated and resized.

In this case, I took a picture, then resized it slightly smaller and rotated it slightly. Then repeated those actions. In paint dot net it’s a ctrl+shift d z once you set up the factors… SQUIRAL… Learned the idea from a “basic” programming book designed to help TRS-80 users. I really liked basic… and made screensavers to demo the computers I sold when working at Radio Shack… One thing about the RS Computers, they really hit the nail on the head with “The Sensation”. That was the first computer for sale to the public that had a cd-rom drive in it… quite a good idea!

On a different subject, I googled the name of this blog and find that it’s a common slogan… Earthday Everyday

Dear President Obama: Grateful Dead reunite. THANKS! You did it…

May 2, 2009
Saint Francisco CA named for Saint Francis...

Saint Francisco CA named for Saint Francis... somehow that fits perfectly...

The Grateful Dead reunited to play a benefit concert for the Obama campaign. Now I see that the dead all got to visit the White House for a special tour. I hope they had a moment or two to discuss policy… LIKE: Tax Marijuana…Perhaps this is the time to legalize LSD for medical use. For Example, in psychotherapy it could be useful… we just do not know… there was some interesting research being done in the 1960’s but then the government FREAKED OUT and made LSD illegal.

“When in danger, when in doubt, run in circleS, scream and shout!”

and that is exactly what the US Government did by making LSD illegal… PANIC!

MKULTRA: The CIA/LSD mind control project that escaped the laboratory and got out onto the DANCE FLOOR!

April 29, 2009
Think for Yourself and Question RealityThink for Yourself and Question Reality...

Words of Wisdom... by Timothy Leary

MKULTRA: a CIA Mind Control Project in the USA during the 1950’s and 1960’s. They were looking for a way to use drugs as weapons of war. For example: LSD as a truth serum to aid in interrogation or as a way to simply get the “enemy” to lay down their arms, voluntarily… like, too stoned to fight…

The project conducted tests on college students at Stanford University. Ken Kesey and Robert Hunter both volunteered to eat LSD and other mind control drugs and report on the effects. Later, Ken started having “ACID TEST” parties where the participants took LSD and danced to the Music of the Grateful Dead. Robert Hunter wrote lyrics for the Dead.

Just co-incidence? or were “the sixties” just a giant experiment to see what would happen???

The OSS (predecessor to the CIA) agent Edward Hunter created a new word for the English Language: BRAINWASHING: to cause a person to radically change their beliefs… They wanted to test if it was possible to cause people to start believing what they were told to believe… useful for control of a nation of sheep…

We can see that many people believed the LIES told by George Bush and voluntarily supported the invasion of IRAQ… Congress funded the war and teenagers joined the ARMY because they BELIEVED THE LIES! Two people are required for LIES to be effective… The TELLER of the Lies and the BELIEVER of the Lies.  It would be a good survival strategy to become skeptical. That way, you don’t end up a gullible fool.

“Think for Yourself and Question Authority” -Timothy Leary

Would the knowledge learned by years of research be useful in our present day war in the Middle East? Could we use psychedelics to reduce the will of the enemy to fight? Change a whole culture into Pacifists?

What would happen if ten million muslims ate LSD ? Would they put down their guns and pick up a guitar? Write some POETRY? Become HIPPIES?  READ MORE at:

At a show I saw this image projected on a movie screen behind the band. Later I found out that there was no movie screen or lightshow of any kind… My girlfriend insisted that it was all in my mind… She was right but what a dull way to live… without hallucinations. BLAH!

“found art” distortion effects in photoshop yield a iconic image…

Just twhirling and waving and zig-zagging in photoshop… looking for ideas…silly art that uses whimsical ideas to represent images...

silly art that uses whimsical ideas to represent images...

This is a classic example of doing random photoshopping and looking for images that represent a graphic idea. I saw a head of hair when I mirrored this abstract pattern and added butterfly eyes and a silly smile…

Bible Story of Three Men on Crosses on a Hill.

Illustration of the Last Days of Jesus Christ. Showing him ascending into Heaven. Many good illustration subjects in the Bible. Read that book! It’s interesting! I especially like the description of Ezekiel and the wheel of fire in the sky. Did he see a UFO or was he tripping on Magic Mushrooms? What Really Happened is subject for debate… Read about a modern day Ezekiel by clicking HERE

CAT looking at YOU from a psychedelic world.

In college, I wrote many JAVA kaeldoscope programs to display colors in geometric patterns. By using screenshots of the program running I was able to create photosynthetic art like the portrait above… The kaleidoscope programs are stored on my geocities webpage called:

visit this soon as YAHOO has decided to stop offering geocities… SO SAD… I hope to move the content elsewhere but that’s a big task and it’s difficult to find a free website that handles java well… any suggestions? leave a comment…
