Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.

It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It's called living.

- Terry Pratchett

the best thing about cocaine

is feeling empty,
feeling false.

feeling like there
so much going on here-
feeling so much.

feeling this and then
a song lyric, feeling this
and then.

look, i was warm.
i was this and then i thought
i was here when you saw me
here when you saw
here when you saw
the way i love about you
the why i love
you here.

the best thing about cocaine
is inside every single certain moment,
and being here awake-

being better than you think,
better among all strangers,
better than i believe
and certain
all is well when you say so
all is well when you say

listen, look and look and look and feel
the best thing about cocaine is that it
isn't real



running, returning

Sooner, or later
Everyone will know,
Within shadows,
In there light will grow
And love is on its way
It's more than I can see

Running, returning
On and on it goes
To a place
Where love begins to grow
And I am on my way
To where I've always been

Come walk with me in the morning light
Call the curious sun
Let it claw right inside heaven in our hands
And when the cold wind blows
We'll wake up on the other side
Where the sunlight sounds like moonlight in our ears

And even underground
They'll hear
Songs of our souls
A song without tears
Rising up
- akron/family, "Running, Returning"



this just in

magic mushrooms are totally fun and in fact their effects can be enduringly magical.

catching up with thousands of years of human behavior and communal observation of the wondrous spiritual understanding that accompanies the use of natural hallucinogens, Science was quoted as saying:

...when they surveyed volunteers 14 months after they took the drug, most said they were still feeling and behaving better because of the experience. Two-thirds of [the volunteers] also said the drug had produced one of the five most spiritually significant experiences they'd ever had.
well, no duh. however, Science:
...also said that despite the spiritual characteristics reported for the drug experiences, the study says nothing about whether God exists.
get that? no mention of whether God exists. none! where are you on that one, huh, Science?
