Ever wonder what an LSD trip looks like? Watch here.
LSD is a huge part of pop culture. From the psychedelic 60’s to the 20th Century trippers LSD has been a major influence on music, art, movies and even science.
We hear about it often and even dance to its messages but how many people actually take a trip down the acid hole? Ingesting a mind altering hallucinogenic substance might be a tad daunting for some so for those curious minds they need not look further.
Mike the microgram man
A YouTube channel AVI LSD has made a video replicating a trip through the eyes of someone who ingested 400 micrograms of LSD. The host of the channel’s name is Mike by the way. Mike the microgram man!
Some of you might be thinking: How can one portray such an immeasurable, subjective experience?
There are many variables that lay the foundation for any given trip such as the type of LSD, dosage, environment and most importantly the state of mind. They all come together in producing either a euphoric trip exploring the micro and macrocosmic wonders of self and ether OR adversely can plunge you into a pit of fear and anxiety.
Now this video can’t portray the physical feelings involved in a trip but I must say the visualisations used, especially the ‘field of grass’ sequence, gives a pretty accurate depiction of what one really sees in most trips- especially of such a dose. The melting pot of swirling colours kaleidoscopically dancing together is a CLASSIC trip observation.
Another attribute I found in resonance is how 1 second things look completely normal and then the next it’s all warped again. This is what I find to express the ‘trip within a trip.’ For a moment you think that you are done tripping and can go back to life as it was and then BOOM, you’re back in it again. That is when the LSD is having its fun with you, sly rascal.
All in all this video is a pretty good introduction for those who are keen to dip a toe or even dive into psychedelic waters.
There are also trip simulators online which actually allow you to trip for a few seconds. At the end of the day we all know there is no substitution for the real experience. Watch where you’re going, you might trip into something spectacular!
