  • this is a good way to show tripping. albeit in a very stylized way. it shows the come up - happy/giddy vibe. colors are enhanced, music sounds better. then it shows a freak out- the dark cloud thing was whatever fucked up thought that got stuck in his head. then the girl brings him back - i had a similar experience on mushrooms, only my girl holding me chilled me out. then the psychedelic booty - holy crap can this be amazing, the art style on this is on point. thats what itll feel like in your head. and loins lol. a good trip will change your life. dont believe the hype about psychedelics. 99% of people dont know what they are talking about when they demonize them. do your research before you drop. learn about them and be responsible. and turn your damn phone off beforehand too. you'll thank me later

  • The message is in no way promotion of drugs, on the contrary - it opposes two forms of escapism (psychedelics vs. love). The animation shows that both experiences send you down a spiral of sensations - they are exciting, fascinating and erotic. But while one is triggered artificially and leaves the mind vulnerable to disturbing side effects and paranoia, the other one is born naturally- it heals the soul and is by no means destructive. How did you manage to so perfectly depict things that can't even be described, but only felt? A masterpiece!

    • Psychedelics are not escapism, they are embracism. You should read more about naturally occurring psychedelics and how they react with your brain (Serotonin mainly) to produce the effects they're known for. We need drug education, but politicians are so focused on outlawing them and destroying the lives of anyone that is curious to try them.

  • Why do you all say “drugs are bad” ? Is it bc the big “scary monster” is going to get you? I think this was beautiful. We don’t live here forever, the human mind is a wonderful place to explore.

  • I think this amazing clip means that when the guy was taking the drug he messed with death and at first he thought it was cool but afterwards he had the feeling of death and it wasn't right. Once he was at the beach and found out the girl was "death" he realised he was scared of death because of the way it is and feels but it wasnt bad at all. Death isn't a bad thing, it's what everyone thinks because there is pain and sadness but that can feel good too.
