[Btw: The rule about pretending to speak for someone else when in fact you talk about your experience is what turned me off the very day I subscribed, I thought this forum was not for me (total lack of spirit in my view: the formalism of the letter of the law takes precedence over the truth and the courageous attitude of some of us willing indeed to engage something, to take a risk in conscience to challenge the status quo...). After moving in instead for a while on another forum where that ill-inspired rule was not in effect, I'd forgotten about it and came back here last night for my 1st post. I wrote it "normally" and no local police authority seemed to have anything to say about it. Glad to see that things can evolve with time in the right direction.
My post was about my recent 2C-T experiences
. Within RCs, I'd only tried MD until now. I thought this molecule (2C-T) was better for what I need at this point. Less euphoric, not empathogenic chemically but largely so spiritually. No more visuals than MD, nothing psychedelic
about it, but a real heightening of inspiration
(contemplation, and any form of creative expression -- poetry for Shulgin, guitar-playing for me
) and entactogeny, which is better "sold" as eroticism/aphrodisiac
I can only feel particular kinship with someone who has "entheo"
in his user name.
But it is rather natural that we have different needs at different stages in our lives, Entheocat
, and it depends what "meaning" or spiritual experience you are looking for. On the forum I've been dwelling in the past 10 days (French section of Psychonaut
), I read a TR yesterday of a cat who did 2C-E
and reached at one point what he called "mystical ecstasy
" ; his description of this state was clear, it was not so much "mystical" as "humanistic heaven" (embracing the whole history of mankind, marveling at the potential of our species, feeling the tragic of the human condition and the basically good orientation of each of us...
), so this really looked potent spiritually.
But I wouldn't want to go through the various less agreeable aspects of the trip, "bodyload", etc. and in any case, I've amply done my time exposing myself to the stronger waves of psychedelics and have had numerous glimpses of these mental heights, enough to then guide me on my path. Three months away from the glorious and wise age of 60
, what I'm after is augmenting all good traits and potentials that I have
I found 2C-T
really excellent in that respect (looking forward, for instance, to drop it when playing/singing in public
). The TRs I've read on all other 2Cs ALL mention some nefarious aspect, danger (deaths with 2C-T-7 ??!
). This one, 2C-T, doesn't appear to have ANY drawback
. The down epilog is even in fact more of an up
It's light, very gentle, won't do it for a lot of us looking for something more powerful. In my view, it's an advantage: you can share it potentially with anyone, even friends and familly who are not "heads" at all.
