"Magic" Mushrooms

2 years, 3 months ago

So I’ve been MIA for a while because i have been testing the effects of Magic mushrooms on my psyche for the last two months and I must say. I am a Believer. I believe that these ancient edible items which are more closely related to us than your tomato actually brings out the magic or “divine in one person. My test would be randomly shuffling through a dictionary and see what word I would land on. Mysteriously the word would always correlate with words pertaining to a higher state of being. In fact the first word I landed on was “Magic” and I could not believe it. Also I would notice my hands would shake and I would rotate my “Meditation Balls” and they would feel like the most electrical static I have ever felt in my life. Besides the mental effect of “being within a world of creativity.” I was more focused on the physical side of things such as working out under the “magic”. Drawing, singing, writing and much more. Since mt “trials” my eye color has changed from dark brown to a orange-hazel color. That being said anyone else have any “magic happen to them?!

@pantheonzeusamon, interesting that you should mention a change in eye color….last winter i took a couple mushroom trips and one of my friends claimed that my eye color had gone from brown to green, but not a natural, human green. More like a reptilian color…which intrigued me because on my very first mushroom trip, the only way I could describe how I felt was reptilian. Though I did not actually see myself as a creature, I felt like, well, a lizard.

Where did you go that enabled you to trip for two months?!?

I could use some more detail from both of you on these eye color changes. I didn’t enough know something like that could be possible.

@lytning91, well, I don’t have much to say on it really. I didn’t believe it was possible either, in fact, I hadn’t thought about it at all until I saw this post also mentioning a change in eye color after taking mushrooms. Of all things to say, it seemed more than coincidental. But I don’t see WHAT about mushrooms would cause the pigmentation in your eye to change?

I don’t know of anything that should cause pigment in your eyes to change, honestly. That’s why this connection was that much more fascinating.

Most babies who have European ancestry have light-colored eyes before the age of one. As the child develops, melanocytes (cells found within the iris of human eyes, as well as skin and hair follicles) slowly begin to produce melanin. Because melanocyte cells continually produce pigment, in theory eye color can be changed. Most eye changes happen when the infant is around one year old, although it can happen up to three years of age.[22] Observing the iris of an infant from the side using only transmitted light with no reflection from the back of the iris, it is possible to detect the presence or absence of low levels of melanin. An iris that appears blue under this method of observation is more likely to remain blue as the infant ages. An iris that appears golden contains some melanin even at this early age and is likely to turn green or brown as the infant ages.
Changes (lightening or darkening) of eye colors during puberty, early childhood, pregnancy, and sometimes after serious trauma (like heterochromia) do represent cause for plausible argument to state that some eyes can or do change, based on chemical reactions and hormonal changes within the body.
Studies on Caucasian twins, both fraternal and identical, have shown that eye color over time can be subject to change, and major demelanization of the iris may also be genetically determined. Most eye-color changes have been observed or reported in the Caucasian population with hazel and amber eyes

@pantheonzeusamon, The real “magic” is coincidence and confirmation bias.

I have some wierd hypothesis going on in my head about eye colour etc…It goes something like this:
The more vital and alive you become the more intense your eye colour and patterns of the eyes become.
Theres as far as I know nothing scientific to back this up but I just get a feeling that its somehow true. The eyes are the gateways to our soul so why wouldnt the soul have a physical impact on our eyes? I believe you, man.

I have noticed my eyes changing colour after consuming a lot of psilocybe tampanensis, they used to be quite brown but as well as the brown strands in my iris turning redish orange it appears these strands have parted more to reveal bluey green colours behind them, it has always been something that i wish I could study properly
