    If you're an alcoholic/addict never go into treatment/recovery. If you read this do not do it. It causes ridiculous ammounts of pain. And even saying this am pretty sure am going to check myself back into an inpatient rehab.

    I dunno,i've been that way my whole life.I think the main problem for us 'adds' is motivation.You know as well as me that there is nothing more exciting than mainlining your drug of choice but unfortunately that won't get us the job we desire in this life.
    I think that people like us that enjoy the old nose candy have to work extra hard to achieve goals or otherwise we'll get thrown on the scrapheap quicksmart.That is the choice we've made,do it and earn your taste/drugs.

    I don't know if I've posted what my high is like but when I get high my thoughts move into conversations between various, almost cartoon like personalities, like one would be a black version of myself, one would be an angry pissed off dude, my prediction of my older self, etc.

    It's possible to think in forms, but forms can only be communicated with symbols. To create the best communication of forms, one needs a language with mechanics that tap into forms on the deepest level possible, with an easy alphabet that creates very little ambiguity. I've noticed that simple interrogatives have multiple meanings that confuse people to the point of debating.

    I'm pretty fuzzy on Form Theory, so bear with me. Do you think there is a finite number of forms and that it's possible to create a language that could unambiguously capture the meaning of all of them?

    One of my biggest problems from years of drinking and drugging and is how I think and percieve. And I am still very much mentally warped. As in it's very difficult to change my mind. Which is basically what cripples me. A lot of times I just feel mental agony. I know when my mind is working the way it should be how much greatly my life improves. Almost as in my brain does not know how to produce or release endorphins. I basically live in my head. And I swear if I did not do these things how much better life would be. I'd be on more comfortable,secure, just better and on higher plan of existence of living. It would not be as exhausting mentally and pysically to pass 24 hours. Because to me shit is mental if anything. Mind over matter. Being alive for me as of right now fucking hurts on many different levels. I feel deprived.

    If someone lived on say Mars. How deprived of everything they would be to need too survive and exist. How would they exist ?, they would die.

    So my good friends from back home stayed with me for a couple nights. I never usually smoke weed anymore, it's been months I think. The main reason was because I would get horrible anxiety/panic attacks and freak out, I hated it. And then I had them in sobriety as well so I cut it out, but my friends had copious amounts of weed (they're road tripping) and of course wanted to share with me, so I obliged...and it was great! I'm not sure if it's the fact that I'm at a much better place mentally than I was back then, or if it was the fact we only smoked joints or what, but I held my own right up with them, and I actually felt more coherent than they were...and we smoked quite a bit, pretty much constantly the past couple of days. I don't think I'll really pick it up like I used to do way back when, but I'm glad it wasn't a terrible experience for me like it used to be. Watching horrible b-movie horrors and playing n64 mario party was great while high as well :lol:

    Im about to go another trip when i get back from my vacation.

    Last time was a great experience, but this one will be alot more intense. Partially due to the fact that I will have 3 tabs. I'll take 2 immediatly and the third depending on where I'm at during the experience.

    Excited but also nervous. And don't remind me about the sleeping thing. I can only remember the state of "limbo" i was in after such an amazing acid trip and then not sleeping, even though it was already 7 in the morning. -_-

    Plan to listen to more metal this time around. Last time all it was was this trippy DMT music my roomate wouldn't stop playing. Had me tripping though.

    Can't wait!

    The last time I tripped (4-acetoxy-DMT) was new years, it was great. took less than I had the previous 2 times where it had blown my head off (or at least felt like it, took it up the nose this time which may have affected the impact, it certainly got rid of the fucking nausea and body load which I was very glad of, allowed for more focused mind wanderings) and listened exlusively to dark shit for the first time (as opposed to a bit here and there among much less extreme sounding stuff) which was very interesting and powerful, a highlight of this was "The Erosion of Sanity" played all the way through, total mind bending warped fuckery.

    I think there is a finite number, but finding it is probably next to impossible. Still, I think a language can be created better than any that exist or have existed that can create more efficient and clear thought.

    Shit. I haven't thought about forms in a while. I should smoke some more weed.

    What's supposed to be so interesting about this topic? As far as i'm concerned, Form Theory is largely an outdated attempt by ancient philosophy to explain the fundamentals of nature, which science has taken over at this point.

    In terms of the concepts that make up language, i'm pretty sure these are completely arbitrary and psychological. You can organize the set of known concepts however you like for the purposes of a language, but there's not necessarily an 'optimal' way to be found, especially since human knowledge and perspectives of the world are always evolving.

    You're in for quite the trip. You might want to have a sitter present just in case.

    I may be buying some shrooms later this week. Hopefully they'll work, because I'm on two anti-depressants. If one doesn't work, I'll just eat a shitload.
