or art that can best be understood when under the influence of mind-altering substances
Back in the sixties
, people dosed LSD
and low-potency marijuana
to adore tie-dye shirts and listen to music like The Grateful Dead
and Jefferson airplane
; nowadays kids use the same drugs and then some (extacy
, etc,) gaze at fractals
and listen to trip-hop
and spacey electronica
while rubbing vic's vaporub
on each other. Times haven't changed, not in the big picture.
It is hard to put into words, it's hard to tell someone to imagine a fractal curling before you, or pulsating and writhing to the beat of the music. I'm reluctant to say that one has to experience this, one certainly doesn't, and many people have lost their minds after going overboard with this leftfield aspect of modern civilization.
Never do any drugs before fully understanding their effects and potential.
...this, by the way, was a nodeshell once ago.
