got bumped 5 seconds after the post..................
Everyone is made up differently. Everyone has had different experiences that may or may not have affected them mentally or emotionally as a base to compare the effects of mind/perception altering drugs.
Drugs ...I'm assuming you mean illicit ones have no standards so the quality and dosage varies wildly.
Then one has to explore and compare what an "artist" is.
Many if not most people already experience the kind of ranges in perceptions drugs cause in thier dreams. Some people remember the visions in their dreams and act on these revelations in their "art". I doubt Picasso had access to LSD. His visions however he aquired them probably scared him.
No two people react to what they percieve in dreams the same way. Some may be entertained by what others are frightened of in their "nightmares".
Many people walking around in public already have hallucinations without any aid from chemicals. Some see things that are not there and some hear voices that are not there.
Who should take drugs? Probably people of sound mind that work with others in the mental health fields would have a better understanding of what they are working with if they could "turn on" and "turn off" the symptoms they work to understand and treat.
Artists? I don't know. Much of the halucination of drugs is disconnected and meaningless and would not relate well to "normal" people.
Perhaps some gifted engineers and scientists would do well to experiment with drug use. They could see things that they have not seen before and if they had enough stability to diferentiate what is usefull from what is not it could lead to some breakthroughs.
All this is assuming that drugs or any endeavor must have some public worth or usefullness to be accepted.
Me ...I just enjoyed the ride. It's too bad no cameras were allowed.
thanks for your honesty anyway ......
You are welcome.
I don't know, does drinking make your posts more creative?
We like to think so.
I dunno.. look at all the bands/artists who's music completely SUCKED after they got cleaned up....
Artists are just less ashamed of it / more able to reveal it.
Truth is EVERYONE smokes pot. Carpenters, electricians, dishwashers, floor cleaners, lawyers, doctors, fuckin' politicians, CDC employees, principals, people who paint the lines on the fuckin' roads.
Separate names with a comma.
