    Hello fellow trippers,

    SWIM, who is a very close friend of me, had his third (and most intense yet) trip with the help of his also close friend Alice. Many people here are asking questions about first trips and how it is, and so I tried to recreate his vision of a landscape he had (I was in nature this time), how he saw the landscape.

    Of course, it is not possible to resemble the visual experience, but SWIM hopes this gives you a good view on what You MAY experience or see (Alice shares her love with SWIU in many different ways).

    SWIM really hopes this is helpful for some people before their first trip and to take away anxiety as every trip with Alice to her Wonderland was beautiful, spiritual enlighting and nice.

    Someone, possibly Nagonog, posted a picture of a book cover that is the closest representation of the psychedelic experience I've yet to see, haven't been able to find that post again, though.

    its interesting, of all the psychedelic art swims seen on the internet this is the only thing that actually tries to show what the person would see. rather than stuff that's "inspired" by psychedelics. it's kind of almost impossible to represent though since it has to do with the senses blending, the fact that it's constantly changing, etc. lsd always reminds swim of with rembrandt where he has like those exaggerated shadows and stuff, and van gogh, the way he does colors, and the shapes of stuff.

    Easier done than said - it can be found by looking in my profile. It's the first edition of The Psychedelic Experience written by T. Leary, R. Alpert, and R. Metzner. A supposed manual on how to prepare for an LSD (or other major psychedelic) trip and based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead.

    Many would say this book alone caused more freak-outs and bad trips than anything else in the 1960's. Even Richard Nixon.

    Hmmm, doesn't seem to be the one I'm thinking of. The cover is a like a crowd of people and shapes, just with a distorted sense of perception, size and depth. The colours are of a quite light, golden brown/pink swatch

    Nice picture

    But SWIM can't put into words or onto a page via a drawing some of the things he has seen or felt while on LSD

    But the art I have created while on LSD well that is a different story completely

    I thought that this did a pretty decent job of depicting a trip.

    yes, swim knows this video as well. It is the closest he ever saw in terms of what a look in the mirror looks like. everytime swim sees this video, it reminds him of people where he was the sitter for their first trip, when they said "I'll go on the toilet to piss, be right back", and swim always knows this will take more like 30 minutes when they look in the mirror for the first time!

    thank you jatelka, I'm trying to share the wonderful experiences of Alice with people, because she was a big factor in huge life changes for swim, in a very positve way.

    If You likes, I will try to make more pictures after the next trip, especially of his ceiling and his floor, where he sees wonderful fractal patterns!

    Sorry, please delete the last posting, swim wanted to edit but accidently filled the "quick reply"!

    That's when you take out your magic-marker and scrawl OUT OF ORDER on the bathroom mirror.

    Regarding your first picture, it reminds me of a shroom trip I had in an arboretum. One little detail he finds lacking in your pic, however, is the faces he would see in trees. Maybe its more of a shroom thing than lsd (probably so actually), but I think it would be cool if you made more of a face impression on some of the trees, especially those to the right. Even at longer distances, swim always found the trees to have a visage of sorts.

    Just a thought.

    Thank you for your advice. swim must say, when he's tripping and looking at trees, it's more like the tree is growing and getting "intense", and all the blossoms are opening and the tree gets wavy and full of aura-like fractals...

    swim's never seen faces on trees, but more so on walls, when patterns sometimes transform to hundreds of faces moving and rotating, pulsing.

    actually, swims pretty sure he'll think of your idea tripping next time and most probably will see faces, hehe. then swim can try to interpret what he's seen...

    Maybe if You uses shrooms he will see something more akin to what swim described. LSD produces different sorts of visual effects.
