An EPT Adventure
6:38pm. Plugged 80mg. Dissolved very easily and quickly in a small amount of tap water.
3 minutes to peak. It's very intense. I've never experienced a plus four but I think I've been fairly close. This would be on the higher end of the spectrum.
The weirdest part is my thought process appears to be completely unaffected. There is no obscuring of ideas, everything is immediately clear in that sense. It's almost as if it's only modulating a layer between my brain and reality that makes interacting with it stranger. It definitely is smashing up my short term memory a bit though.
Constant flow of new visuals. Never saw the same thing twice. Not even things that had similar themes. Must have gone through at least 50 different patterns and distortions.
Closed eyes is strange. It was still completely black, but space distorted rapidly into patterned shapes. I could percieve complex shapes and edges although they had no color at all. I don't think I could depict this visually. It appeared to be part of my vision but what I was seeing was not visually representable. When I opened my eyes there would be a massive influx of visual effects which quickly became less prominent.
Body high is very euphoric. It feels good and refreshing. There are mild vibrations in everything.
It makes me think as though my thought process was as if I was sober. I'm at least a little bit fucked up. But only very slightly compared to most other psychedelics. This is significantly clearer than the drugs commonly considered to be clear headed (4-HO-MET and AL-LAD come to mind).
Music sounds identical but better synchronized with my thought process. I felt notes in the song as if I had become them and reality had completely left for a few brief moments during the peak! It's easy to understand the music in a conceptual sense. It almost lets you zoom out on a time frame and capture the essence over a longer period.
Very grounded. Literally any other psychedelic would makes me feel less like myself.
The peak lasted about 30 minutes. There was then a rapid descent in intensity for another 30 minutes, followed by a much slower decline in residual visual effects. It's 10:00 now and I'm still getting slight visuals but am otherwise completely sober. I tried to go to sleep at around 9:00 because I was tired (mostly from work earlier), but couldn't.
I feel like I have a pretty good sense of where this will go at higher doses and would feel comfortable pushing it further. But now it's time for a long break...
