Fight Club Memorable Quotes

Posted 07-01-2008 at 16:55 by Fight Club

You wake up at Seatac, SFO, LAX. You wake up at O'Hare, Dallas-Fort Worth, BWI. Pacific, mountain, central. Lose an hour, gain an hour. This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time. You wake up at Air Harbor International. If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

You know why they put oxygen masks on planes? Oxygen gets you high. In a catastrophic emergency, you're taking giant panicked breaths. Suddenly you become euphoric, docile. You accept your fate. It's all right here. Emergency water landing - 600 miles an hour. Blank faces, calm as Hindu cows.

On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.

When people think you're dying, they really, really listen to you, instead of just . . . waiting for their...

Rubberlips (part 2)

Posted 27-01-2008 at 01:11 by VincentVan

Only in her bed, among wild flowers and sharp slivers of colorful glass, became evident to me the reason why Nature choose sex as only instrument for life's evolution and betterment of the species; and why the gods always feared it and forbid it, while all demons, visionaries and rebels always used it to challenge them and to mock their power.
Only in her bed could I glimpse the might of Helen and the passion of Medea.
In her bed time would first freeze and then crumble into shiny fragments of past and future, that would finally fall, like april's rain on our sweaty, thirsting bodies.
There, in the temple of senses, space could not exist.
Matter transformed into novel sensations: juicy fruits of the games of our bodies; which, if squeezed, distilled elixirs of deep, deep pleasures.

Rubberlips (part 3)

Posted 11-02-2008 at 19:40 by VincentVan

You see, Rubberlips was not like all the other lovers.
She was more like a virus.
She could work her way deep down to your soul; and then slowly begin to carve it and reshape it in her unmistakeable style, until you were left with a priceless masterpiece that all would admire and crave but which did'nt belong to you anymore.
She could gradually seep into your blood so that her taste would constantly be in your mouth; and once in there she would take possession of your heart and use it as a burning hot iron to brand her image in every cell of your brain.
But all this process just felt so good, so natural, so inherently perfect, that no one ever tried or even thought of fighting it.
Just like the chrysalis, scared as it might be, does not fight its becoming a buttefly.
The acorn does not fight...

A Good Man

Posted 26-02-2008 at 04:12 by saorsa.elegy

A good man died sunday. He was a bedraggled soul. He worked hard, in a garage that he rented. He fixed cars. He took care of his children. He loved his wife. She left him. He took care of his brother's kids. What a Good Man.
He was always as cheerful as the sunshine. Smiling through his pain. How does he do that? He was locked under his porch for days as a child. The parents didn't love him.
He knew he was dying, but to spare us the sadness he didn't tell. He suffered alone, as was his custom.
Liver cancer. It took him. He is finally in a place that there will be no more tears.
But, i miss him

Balance, Perspective, and Moderation

Posted 28-02-2008 at 17:14 by Metomni

SWIM has a lot of values and morals that he's obtained over the years, some picked up recently and some stemming from childhood. SWIM was raised in a very conservative, very loving, and very reinforcing environment; actually, he was quite sheltered until about 17-18. SWIM has never viewed drugs in a poor light, even when his parents would tell him that they were bad. His brother even got in a good bit of trouble with the law over drugs, but honestly, SWIM would never do some of the dumb things his sibling did (carrying kilos with a broken tail light, getting in a bike wreck while smashed and carrying several drugs, and the list goes on).

SWIM always felt he had a pretty good perspective on responsible drug use. His life's motto to this point has been, "Everything in Moderation." It works for how to handle personal...

Sync Ups at WPF

Posted 26-03-2008 at 18:29 by moda00
Updated 23-04-2008 at 23:42 by moda00

Lots of discussion and thoughts on syncronicity (sp?) and won't get into it all, but thought I'd share a few experiences..

Meeting some fellow DFers, chances to meet with and talk to Rick Doblin and many MAPS staff and volunteers, etc. worked in perfectly with what was needed, mind states and thoughts and energy begetting energy in a perfectly aligned journey forward, coming full circle..

At the airport, rounding out the journey, I ran into another WPF attendee, someone I didn't end up getting to meet at the conference, but the meeting occurred spontaneously at the airport instead.

I also found myself sitting next to a girl on the plane. I was a bit tired, and while I think I am not usually a very judgemental person, I was quite tired and sleep deprived, and figured I would just go to sleep and not interact.....

Your Dreams

Posted 28-03-2008 at 12:34 by sweetsugar

It doesn't matter whether you're 14 or 114, you should never give up on your dreams.Too many people do so at the first sign of any setback. You've got to have the will and determination to go on, even in the face of adversity. I think it's just human nature that if you want something with all your very being then you're probably going to have the most horrendous time trying to get it.

I liken it to climbing Everest (not that I actually have you understand). Look at what those few people who make it to the top have to go through to get there; all of the unimaginable obstacles both mental and physical they have to overcome. But then, when they finally make it, after all the anguish and exhaustion, with just about nothing left in the tank except adrenaline alone, they suddenly take that final step and there they are, standing on...

Alex and Allyson Grey's Psychedelic Families lecture
March 23, 2008 Congress Center of Basel, Switzerland

Idea of "Father Knows Best" ideal American family from early-mid 1900s
-Personal history- No discussion of drugs with parents, but often surrounded by alcohol, tobacco, legal/prescription drug use, although problem use is veiled or not discussed, it is in the background

Images- Ozzy and Harriet (ideal of mom/dad/teens, happy together) vs. Ozzy Osbourne and family- both are "together" families that have caring/loving but appear very different

Consistent mischaracterization of the marijuana issue often at the root of the drug education problem- exaggerates and conflicts with what many know through experiencing or observing its reality, or some simple research (more generally...

Today's blog

Posted 17-04-2008 at 19:29 by cyndi (Life........)

Today after cursing God for taking my son from me. Of course it isn't God's fault, but I was just going off. I got a letter from him for the first time since he has been in prison and I feel I lost him to the drugs and gang. I am full of emotion, hopeful that once he is out, he will change and have a future. He sounds like himself again, my child not the thug that lived here. I pray to God he stays in the right direction because the life is a hard one and ends usually two ways, death or prison. I feel hopeful for the first time in months. He is my child and I love him and will never abandon him no matter what.

Samadhi123's novella 'The Willow Orchard- Part 1 of 7'...

Pt. I
The Beginning of the End…It Walks Shadowed


Another moon…another birth brought enlightened and made clay to skin by the creators.

"Such plans I have for you" they spoke in phlegmatic understatement.

"If the memory goes unnamed forever you must remain. Shattered in the silence of this temple faced ruin…you seek… you hold the answers beneath those false eyes…Of ice I have created this home…scarred by the remains of the dead hopes that have left the pages of this book pockmarked with half-truths and tall tales…all have the key but few have the choice…I have chosen you…The barren seven remain uprooted and challenged in vain…you face the ultimate test…no debt will go unpaid" they spoke.

A Short Poem about Drug Addiction . . .

Posted 02-06-2008 at 03:12 by beena (Pipe Dreams)

Her First Love (by Beena)

Baby, when will you learn,
That the crack you burn,
Only leads to pipe dreams
And nefarious schemes

Left-wing student utopia,
Became self-destruct dystopia,
Big city lights and a future so bright
Now lay in waste

First came the highs
Then came the cries
A ten pound deal
Preferred to a meal

Languid inanition
Replaced real ambition
Days spent chasing, living room pacing
After her first pipe

Forty pounds for a quarter,
A bottle of water,
Tinfoil and ash
Was her day to day stash

Intense cerebral stimulation,
No longer masked feelings of rejection
Day to day strife, made her reach for the knife,
Walls sprayed with claret...

The Psychology of Hashish, by "Oliver Haddo"

Updated 19-06-2008 at 06:42 by enquirewithin

Quote:
This article was originally published inThe Equinox, Volume I, Number 2, September 1909 as by "Oliver Haddo' and is on line in many places including here.

Chapter I
“The girders of the soul, which give her breathing, are easy to be unloosed... Nature teaches us, and the oracles also affirm, that even the evil germs of matter may alike become useful and good.”

Comparable to the Alf Laylah wa Laylah itself, a very Tower of Babel, partaking alike of truth both gross and subtle inextricably interwoven with the most fantastic fable, is our view of the Herb — Hashish — the Herb Dangerous.

life- update

Posted 21-07-2008 at 15:46 by moda00

Just wanted to update everyone on what is happening with me.. apologies for not having been around too much this summer, I am doing my best to help out here and there but have been unable to do as much as I would like.

I found out in mid-June that I am expecting. This will be my first child. The pregnancy was unplanned but is welcomed as a blessing and celebration of life. I consider it an honor to have the experience of helping to create a new life.

I have been very physically ill due to the pregnancy, and have had to be hospitalized a few times due to excessive vomiting and dehydration (hyperemesis gravidarum). I am on an anti-emetic (ondansetron, or Zofran) which has been helpful but doesn't solve the problem entirely.

I have also come off of the medications I was taking for my sleep disorder, including...

Lip Service

Lip Service
(Or a Failed Attempt To Think of Something Other Than You)

The Scene does its best to impress: sunlight angles down
And to the left, just so, coaxing a neon moss colored glow
From the surface of the small lake resting like a green broken egg
Beneath a wreath of trees and grey rock outcropping;

The patch of sky exposed to my eyes is blue, then white,
Blue, then white, then blue again as the wind, like some furious djin,
Expands its chest, extends its breath, pushes the clouds fast
By the mountains patient head;

Huddled below at the humus feet of coniferous spires
(That set my mind whispering at the futile span of one life) tiny
Villages of mycotic albinos open white and mud colored umbrellas to...

worlds worst buddhist

Eyes fixed but unfocused, a mantram pulsing through his head--weaving a vibrational flux to act like a pendulum of attraction on the electro-chemical waters of his brain; singing into being a scaffolding of dissociation.

Sinew and bone begin to melt into a quantum foam of probabilistic non locality.

Sounds of people talking and laughing are left to bleed into the sky, belonging no longer to the corrugated cartilage and tiny bones that catch and coax them into coherence.

Dimensionality begins to collapse, leaving the tapestry of sense and cognition--so enveloping and complete a moment before--seeming analogous to a spotted film of oil on the surface of an ocean.

The Dreamer

Posted 19-08-2008 at 03:43 by The Dreamer

I'm crazy. Not bat-shit crazy; that might be fun. I'm the other kind of crazy. The crazy where you're still a normal person with a job and a wife and a life full of everyday tasks. Except that you've got the 'other side' of your brain that just rides your ass all day and makes it impossible to do any of those 'normal' things. Sometimes I think I'd be happier if I just gave in and let myself drift away into insanity. But I can't.

I can't have a normal 9-5 job or I'll get suicidal. I can't be alone with myself or I'll go crazy. I can't be in a crowd without sweating. I can't decide to do something because I won't go through with it. I can't feel the same way tomorrow as I do today; about anything.

The thing is that I'm very good at some things. I can love. I love my wife; and she knows it. I don't let...

American Sheepdom

Posted 21-08-2008 at 16:25 by The Dreamer

People complain about big business and unfair treatment all the time. You hear them going on about it at work and at school and on the news. But we're the people right? Aren't we in control of America? We treat Europe and the rest of the world as if we invented Democracy. But do any of us even know how our democracy works? Are any of us citizens in the Greek sense?

No, we're sheep. We sit each day and abstain from knowledge; we neglect to actually care about each others causes. We sit and get fat on the poisons that big business sends us in little plastic bags. Until we can rise up and inform ourselves we will continue to be at the mercy of American Aristocracy.

Businesses run on a simple form of evolution. The ones that survive continue to control the market; the ones that don't survive, don't. So if...

The In-Between

Posted 31-08-2008 at 23:58 by infekt

Just a little piece of writing I did..


There is no comfort in the in-between. We are awake before we can rest, and unfortunatley when we are born we have to live before we die. I suppose it makes things more interesting. It's 4:02 AM, and yes it's great to be back, wherever the hell I am. I always love being back, "here". Staring in to the bathroom mirror. This is the place where the realization hits me: no rest tonight. I have an exam tomorrow morning at 9. I have to urinate in a cup for the 47th district at 7:30 in the AM.

So I'll walk through this exhausting limbo in between wake and rest into the horizon, and find solace in my anxiety; the reflection in the river, the shadow I cast over the garden. Two different color schemes outlining the same issue. Both are my bathroom mirror, where I...

A Short Poem about Paranoia ...

Posted 03-10-2008 at 12:04 by beena (Pipe Dreams)

Paranoid...
Everybody is looking at me
But they think I am unaware
Everybody is talking about me
They have nothing nice to say


I chew my nails and pull my hair
I fidget uncomfortably in my chair
I am the centre of this room
All eyes are fixed on me


I am being studied and analysed
My every move is noted down
By cold disapproving minds
That penetrate into my head

They pry into my private thoughts
And listen to my secrets
And later when I am not there
They will laugh at me.

MEDIA OWNERSHIP AND BIAS France: his master’s voice pt2

Posted 10-10-2008 at 11:33 by Benga

That the communications giants would find “freedom of the press” to be such an obliging concept does not disturb Reporters sans frontières (RSF, Reporters without borders). RSF’s secretary general, Robert Ménard, offers this concession: “In order to defend journalists throughout the world, we require the consent and support of the profession, whereas discussions concerning the journalistic profession are by definition contentious. For instance, how can we organise a discussion on the increasing concentration of the media and then ask Havas or Hachette to sponsor an event?” (10). Since defending journalists in China or Chechnya also means dealing with Hachette and Havas (not to mention Silvio Berslusconi, Rupert Murdoch and Francis Bouygues), is it surprising that among the “predators of freedom of the press” named by RSF - and pilloried last...

Isreal Regardie--Roll Away the Stone: An Introduction to Aleister Crowley' on Hashish

Roll Away the Stone: An Introduction to Aleister Crowley's Essays on the Psychology of Hashish with the complete text of The Herb Dangerous [by] Aleister Crowley Regardie, Israel (1968)

Roll Away the Stone
by Israel Regardie

The purpose of the hashish-session was simply to provide the student with a fore-taste or some adumbration of the mystical experience towards which he was focusing all his energies. It was never the intention of Crowley at any time to use drugs as a substitute for the body-mind discipline which he insisted on beyond all other things. This was the furthest notion from his mind. ...

I want to emphasize unequivocally that Crowley has asserted not once but a thousand times that the discipline itself was far more important than any one particular result or attainment. His thesis

Just over a year ago we lost the best cat ever, Buddy:





Maybe this sounds screwed up, but this was the biggest trauma I've ever been through, much worse than my grandparents dying. He lost most of his jaw to oral cancer but he coped with that fine, he ended up dying of a respiratory inflammation. He died right in front of me just after I got him to the vet's and the image is seared into my mind permanently. He only lived a short time after his cancer surgery, and I've not yet forgiven myself for putting him through that.

Even healthy things can become unhealthy addictions

Posted 07-11-2008 at 01:05 by Metomni

As I continue to go long grueling days and weeks and months without any additional tattoos, I find myself becoming more desperate to feel the needle on my skin. For a while I turned to scarification and while I love both the act of doing it and the results it gives, I'm not always in the mood/pumped up enough to go through the time and pain that such a rite requires. I've also done a brand a time or two to the same beautiful result, but these things are just not the same!

I've even resorted to attempting to put together a home made tattoo gun. Apparently, it can be done, but they are pretty primative. I figure I am going to give it a try because having a self-done tattoo means more to me than having it look really nice. I will still have plenty of skin for the good ones, plus I've always been good at putting my markings...

Case Study: Salvia Divinorum and Bipolar Disorder

Posted 18-11-2008 at 21:51 by Heretic.Ape.
Updated 19-11-2008 at 09:19 by Heretic.Ape.

1.0 Introduction
My monkey has noticed a remission of bipolar symptoms since beginning experimentation with salvia around two weeks ago. This blog will be a log of his observations to determine whether the plant is responsible for this remission, contemplations on the potential reasons for such an effect, and general thoughts on the matter.

2.0 Case History.
Subject began showing symptoms at around the age of 16 with mood swings, grandiose thinking, and other typical bipolar trademarks. The disorder reached it's fruition when subject was 22 years old. He had a complete breakdown, which he does not remember very well. He came to believe that he was the devil and that he had come to earth to set mankind free from the shackles of the false God and to redeem Truth by a pure form of heresy. If this does not make sense,...
