LSD - Took 4 x blotters when I was 21, yup.. four of the fuckers.. was out of my mind for a good 24 hours, the first 8 hours were very hectic, thought I was gonna die when I initially came up, but when it all eventually leveled out - My local town turned into 16th Century Tudor buildings, the cars turned into horse & carts, and the public were all peasants dressed in rags, the roads turned into country tracks but all my friends I was tripping with turned into Royalty (princes, princesses etc) I was dressed in rich robes with gold, crown & a long cloak & other royal regalia.. it was so real I marched up to the local bank with my 'royal family' & apparently demanded all the money from the bank as I was the king & entitled to it!..
The scariest, funniest, & most surreal 24 hours of my life.
As far as I can remember,It was when I didnt do any drugs for a while,I had been on a tolerance break from everything..,drinking, smoking.It was about a year ago I was sitting on my roof stargazing,When i felt like the air itself was a cushion on all sides of my body,and a tremendous feeling of gratitude washed over me,just for being alive.It was a great night.The funny thing was is that I had been completely sober for a month,Yet it felt like i took a hell of a dose of something good!Maybe it was a sort of flashback effect,I dont know but it felt profoundly awesome.

Stayed up for many moons and ended up giving cpr to a dead snake for 3 hours instead of being at work.
When I was a young-in I did a ton of high shit that could be construed as bizarre.
Peyote+Cocaine mix. I became an artist and produced a really good piece on the wall.
There is a bit more to it which I need to include. The way I was living my life, the people I was mixing with and where I was all played a major roll in the experience.

my roomate and I also played a game called 'Digital DreamWare' on the old 3DO system. It was a game set to music that you used the controllers to 'play' with fractals and tyedye type shapes and colors. Twisting 'down' and 'up' into the shapes on the game using the controller as well as speeding them up and down, inversions etc. After so long everywhere we looked had the images imprinted upon them.
as for my most altered state of mind... the day i had my baby. after 26 hours of labor, and an hour of pushing, my doctor says my baby is stuck. so it's off for an emergency c-section. lying on that operating table, totally paralyzed, couldn't feel my hands although i could see them. it was hard to breath, like my lungs didn't even want to work. i could feel my body shaking as they were pulling the baby out. it was the most unreal experience of my life. fortunately, everything turned out well, we had a beautiful baby girl
