To myself

45 percent different at most Writing down noted for later is the equivalent of being able to do this in a lucid dream Alsoutne experience of being able to type this I'd super cool. Don't thing I'm actually going much faster but I love feeling it... Thinking about Alex and Ida as people who I need to explain this to afterwards, both for good and for bad (bad: record keepers. Good: people who care) - and so quickly. Evil villain to good guys immediately (5m) Ego death...? At least remember thinking about traveling around for plowing Normally I'd never try to narrate my experiences like this...

Take my hand in the middle of a crisis. Definitely 40 percent different And then the hunger... And the stimulation constantly stimulated Glad I get to pass this around and keep it consistent Other feelings: Quan is maybe not okay next to me? But he's thinking the same thing Drunk rambling is super great Why don't I do this more?

Feeling all these things which I'm going to forget immediately I just died But I'll be able to go back and read these Have fun future self

Trying to simulate and stimulate self in the future in all the ways it means... Definitely at a different state of consciousness You'll never have to be alone... And that's all you need to know!!!

Why am I the kind of person to pull out my phone and start taking notes?

Other people... Do this dancing thing which I can no longer capture Could capture more with video??? See the video with me and Quan



Time stamping now anyways. 0100 pretty cool Feeling now grateful to have Quan next to me experiencing these together - tho earlier, wanted to be experiencing things on my own

Definitely won't hold on to this... But it has that same dream state that you would want to pull people into and turn into a cult

Am I experiencing this because of edc? Or acid? I mean my conscious self would have led thsi trek down meeting Quan and then coming here

Backwards like that fking novel look up later pool Ted Chiang not interstellar atrial arrival remember edelignt swlgiht dwlig deleting this moment

Probably nto tomorrow lol good luck

Quan is immeasurably wise for sitting up here instead of being in down there... Thanks Quan!

That was only 6 minutes? No way holy shit Oh fuck it was Love being able to take photos and stuff Good luck with this next video

"I don't know if this is something other people do" "but other people???"

Trying to keep this for myself in the future I'm glad I'm experiencing all of this even if in the future I'll be regretting it a whole ton...

Still super hungry Have fun future - not murderer - but friend Austin! Still got a couple videos to keep this feeling alive in What would I do if I were going to die now?

Oh This is it This story Like literally Tomorrow you're going to be dead And no one is going to be able to tell Except Austin If Austin decides to post this...

Why would he? Oh

Still trying to transmute the feeling right now unto a thin pipe of being writing understanding Wish I had a laptop to type but that would be another excuse I wonder who rzle E is trying to write under these conditions But who CA es

Who cares I'll do my thing This is avou and when Quan fiuged out Figures out that - dj set - gryffin - this super slow feeling

Holy shit Glad I'm writing this down Never going to be able to recapture it Thunhgs go Ng back and forths Slowing down I wonder how pirole people outside are perceiving this But who cares Who cares

Except for the fact that I'm going to die like once this is all gone I'm still writing this? Shit.... Losing the control of the scrub line - ability to scrub things back and forth fk this isn't really helping with write it down anyways Okay now I'm on a trip
