I took LSD when I was 16. I can’t describe the experience. It is ineffable. It is what it is whatever it is. Like the Tao, it is nameless; like Moses meeting God in the desert who identifies himself to Moses as “I am who I am.”

The only memory I have of it all is that I wanted to eat my mind so that my mind and I would be one. Some would say it sounds like I had lost my mind, perhaps so. Alternatively, I realized I was a prisoner of mind and that the only path to freedom was to merge mind and self as mind and self is all there is. That realization, the first awakening.
