  • the absolute truth is: it didn't make sense until after my first trip on LSD. . . how cliché

    how horrible that my philosophical awaking can be even called a cliché!

    there we were. . . only forty-five minutes into our dimensional adventure. . .

    watching planet earth

    watching the world just do what it does. . .

    and then on our forty-two inch, high definition, flat screen we saw them.

    five million snow geese flying south for the winter.

    the smile on my face must have stretched so far that it invaded my husband's peripherals. . .

    "What are you smiling at?"

    "Five million geese can all fly three thousand miles each year and you and I can't even make it to California."

    "Seems silly."

    "Yeah."

    we continued to watch what humans consider simple-minded creatures pay attention to their inner calling. . .

    and then the section about chimps was on. . . and the LSD was kicking in. . .

    we listened and watched the chimps become agressive, territorial, bullies who ate the flesh of their enemies. . .

    shit. chimps feel as though they have enemies. and those direct enemies aren't humans.

    those direct enemies are other chimps. . .

    we watched them. we saw them.

    "We have to stop watching this. I can't watch this."

    And with a slight raise of the remote and a simple push of a button the images were gone.

    how horrible. how horrible it is to think that the developed brain creates unnecessary negativity.
