Any little Swimmer who has ever done nos will most likely have experienced the echoing sounds, but for those who woke up one morning lacking memory of the past few days but surrounded by little clinking canisters, or for those who have mixed nos with other drugs such as E, weed, or alcohol (I know mixing disassociates and alcohol is not healthy)another level or 2 or perhaps 3 may have been found within the nos experience. SWIM no longer does nos until he knows he is peaking on something else so as to ease his propulsion to these other levels. But within these other levels I have found that the trip follows a well worn path of previous trips, Is this just SWIM? I have now begun to try and record the path his trips follow so he can look at it when sober (if its the same every time it might have some meaning) An example of something which played a part in my nos trips for a number of months was two good friends appearing in 2D on a screen one with a blue the other red background, both facing one another one on the left the other on the right, they would then bob forward and backward (in relation to them selfs) arguing. this "item" within SWIM trips would appear regularly in the same place within the trip (preceded each time by the same visuals) I am now managing to pull himself from a trip sometimes and scrawl down his thoughts, in the morning although not making sense SWIM recognizes he has experienced them in other trips. examples of what he has managed to scrawl down follow: "It always goes wrongdocerty it has the past 3 times" and "the convo is in manish Ug Ugs" with these hints SWIM now knows wrongdocerty is a word or set of sounds that repeat at a stage in the trip, Manish ug ugs relates to the tone/nature of my internal voice as he vocally (in his head) thinks or argues with other items within the trip or himself. (EDIT Of course "wrong-doc-erty" has a rhythm to it that links with the the sound of 'nitrous echoes', as could "ug ugs") my problem is that an Evil clown has now appeared in my trips with the sole purpose of stopping SWIM remembering, the path of his trips The clown grabs thoughts that I am trying desperately to hold on to and plucks them from swims mind in unusual and interesting fashions. most recently throwing his tongue (like a fly eating lizard might) at the thought, catching it then moving away backwards pulling the thought from my mind as SWIM held on the clowns head spun slowly putting 2 twists into my now distended thought (SWIM actually felt his thought being pulled, stretched and twisted, that was most odd) at this I know he let go and the thought sprang to the clown as if on elastic. So does anyone else follow they're own well worn nos path? does anyone else battle with some figment of they're trip to keep thoughts? and does anybody else see the clowns?
