Edit: An updated blog post with everything you need to know. Do not read the “Why” if you plan to participate, it will spoil it.
1) Being comfortable with being very high on mary jane is used, so if that isn’t an option, you must be willing to deprive yourself of sleep to a point of being very tired (maybe 3-4 hours post bedtime).
2) You need to, at some level, enjoy electronic music, with a strong bass. This there is little exception and if this is altered its no longer my experiment, but would still be interesting.
What you’re going to do:
•Smoke a great deal of weed to a point you consider to be very high.
•Get relaxed in bed, shut off all the lights, preferably at night so there is little light.
•Have an MP3 player handy with some quality headphones.
•Play songs in shuffle from these two albums:
Infected mushroom – Converting Vegetarians
Infected mushroom – Viscious Delicious
It MUST be these two albums. It is better if you haven’t heard them EVER before.
When you are comfortable and relaxed, turn on the music, shut your eyes, and zone out to only the music.
Turn it to a comfortable level, not too loud, but so you can hear every beat and sound easily. As the song progresses, slowly increase the volume! The music should reach a point where it is the only possible thing to focus on – not painfully loud, but loud beyond anything else.
My hypothesis; You WILL astral project. You will find yourself in space, or some void where your body is stretching and contorting and dancing with incredibleness.
Notes: I want these albums first because I need to understand something of these.
I do not doubt that other music can easily induce the same effects, but I want to make sure of something with these.
If anyone is up for this challenge, please post here. I need participants!
I’ve done it a hundred times and its an absolutely fantastic unbelievable experience for me.
@frustratedpanda, a deprivation tank + music is my dream… I’ve always wanted to do it. Without would be just as interesting, but different.
@emily, That wasn’t my intention, if you;d all like to try it go for it. My true intentions I will wait to share till I get some results.
@zhaetur, Fall asleep while high listening to some very intense trance? I doubt it.
@beardlike, Please do!! Report back your experiences.
@totempole, I don’t know how to share music in a non-complicated way… if you have any idea, you can msg me, or just get a torrent and look them up (OR, for the sake of infected mushroom’s glory – buy them, they are well worth it.)
Guys please, if you;’ve never listened to them before, don’t do it before you do the experiment. The best results are when you do not expect the song’s progression. You can skim through a few to get a feel for whats going to be heard, but don’t ruin it for yourself
@ijesuschrist, I reckon infected mushroom would be good while being on a mushroom trip as well. I know the albums, have listened to them (actually two days ago I have been playing them while mixing in a local bar), but will still try it once I get back home. It for sure is good spacing music.
@filipek, deamau5 is alright…
If you want, you could download these songs, they are progressive enough:
1) Kwoon – I lived on the moon
2) Bluetech – Worthy
3) Ozric Tentacles – Fractal Eternal Wheel
4) Joey Fehrenback – Behold
5) Shpongle – Divine Moments of Truth ( you probably know shpongle too, damnit!)
6) Shpongle – Nothing is Something Worth doing
7) You could try some 1200 mic‘s albums – they are very similar to infected mushroom, but not as good I don’t think.
@ijesuschrist, So do you actually astral project when you do this? Like the whole, body goes numb, vibrates, then you rip from your body? Or do you just start seeing things because of the music and the high and then it just intensifies until it is almost dream-like?
@blankey, for me, in the strictest sense, no.
I forget I’m in my body – and I get stretched and contorted to various ends of the galaxy. My body is humming to the music. At time’s I’ve kind of snapped out of it and realized I’m like horizontally jumping in my bed. It gets pretty nuts, you have to be pretty god damn high though to get there, or pretty tired, or both.
Any more and I will give away some things.
