I am writing this review only to help Erowid, which I recently found.
My dear fellow vibratory creatures! It is with plethora of emotion I write you. First let me establish myself as far as you can know me in the illusion world. I am currently 40 yrs old. In physical existence within this cycle anyway. I guess you desire to know of my experiences, which I am sure will be pale in comparision with what I have read in the 2 days I have been on the Erowid site. Of course I smoked very abundantly cannabis but I wish to speak briefly of my expereinces with lsd more aptly my first time. I lived in FL at the time, I was approx. 16-17. Me and some friends went to some caves outside of highsprings, fl to do this there were about 4 of us. Keep in mind I am working with old memories. But the things I remember were these.
1. After I took the 2 hits we waited to decend into the caves until our peak was approaching. On the way down I noticed the entrance was actually thru the trunk of an old rusted car.
2. Everyone had huge bug eyes.
3. I felt like a worm.
4. There was a room we could not find out way into and there were growls and howling eminating from this room.
Now today I am "clean". Clean since 2.22.1999. I am clean since this time because on that day, thru a drug addiction I was shot 7 times with a .380 spend my time in the hospital for 8 weeks and rehab. I needed rehab because one of the bullets struck me in the head and sent bone and bullet fragments into my temporal lobe (L). Took another glancing shot to the back of the head, 2 under the left arm were i raised my arm in a defensive nature, another in the neck, another in the chest and a final one on my leg. So after this happened I dried out so to speak.
I found religion, I thought I found god but it was only religion. So the beat goes on I always knew there was a creative life force. So I studied religion wich led me to shamanismn, druidismn, and my search went stagnat for years. Then as recent as last year I FOUND!!! or at least the trail became clearer.
This happened after I found "The Emerald Tablets of THOTH the Atlantean'
Now I know what I am looking for or rather been missing. It is, in short DMT.
You think I'm bullshitting? In the Emerald Tablets THOTH speaks of higher enlightment and he gives the way. THOTH says, in the tablets "Start thy vibration in thy brain center, irregular first and regular second" I can stop there because :
A) Every reference I find on smoked DMT describes this.
2) DMT is naturally recurring in the body but to reach the ether, which is in the tablets, one must more DMT than the bodies produces. Funnny also how the powers that be have outlawed DMT and the reason why is because they cannot have a population of enlightened beings to wich they cannot control so the outlaw it and keep us in the dark about so they can impose their reallity upon us. So in short I desperatley NEED TO find THE POWER AND THE GLORY!!!!!!
Someone PLEASE help me!! If I die to reach The Halls of Amenti then I die If I am Jailed to reach The Halls of Amenti Then so be it!!!! PLEASE HELP ME!!! I must say also that while drawing the circles of Sacred Geometry I had a platuea experience. I drew the circles nearly all day for 3 days.
Anyway SOMEONE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME!!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Gain high grade supporters with lobbying power!! Let's change the world!!!

Erowid happens to be my number resource and reference that i use today. This site is a fantastic one, and one that I would call unique. A vast amount of reliable information, art, culture, drugs, make Erowid what it is. I'm sure the website has saved many lives and I hope it gains more recognition for what it truly is, thank you.

¬°Great site! It helps to know how to introduce to certain substances in a very healthy way. You can learn and inform about this kinds of things, and that way you'll be able to really know what you are doing, and what's the better way of doing it. Sometimes the lack of information and experiences can be dangerous, so its really important to enter to erowid and check how other people lived their experiences before trying a new psicoactive trip.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Improve the layout, sometimes it's not very clear were everything is. Make the design of the web a little more friendly.

Erowid is really an amazing site, it offers a ridiculous amount of knowledge on all types of substances, while never glorifying them or their use. It gives you the cold hard facts about the pros and cons, and even lets users submit their own experiences, which is a really excellent feature that helps readers get a better understanding of the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Erowid has offered me the one of the most trustworthy and vast bank of information via articles, collected data and user experiences that is so hard to find any other place. My favorite entheogen information source over many many years.
