Distorted perception VERSUS awareness of self
As many of you well might know (i gess if u experience the same effects of cannabis as i do) that after the peak and the high and/or the day after, the way things around you look are definitely different. Different compared to the way things look after a couple months of sobering up.
I was thinking last night in bed (high:headbang that perhaps instead of this being an distortion of visual perception as an after-effect of the thc chemical in your brain altering chemicals, electrical msgs being sent across synapses etc., that perhaps its a sense of spiritual enlightenment. albeit an extremely extremely mild one.
perhaps the greater visual dissociation with the physical reality that surrounds us is, in fact, a greater awareness of oneself and one's existence. although i often confused this with less attachment to reality and less grounded than i would 'soberly' be, perhaps its in some way an access to a greater personal reality. at least until you get 'sormal' again.
Do you think its "just the drugs", or is there really some sort of spirituality attached to this?
'soberly': normally = high / soberly = not high
'sormal': normal = high / sormal = not high
