Lists with This Book. Jun 11, Andrew C. A terrible sense of dread and doom filled me — I knew what was happening, I alexamder I couldn’t stop it, but it was so devastating; I was being destroyed — all that was familiar, all reference points, all identity — all viciously shattered in a few seconds.
I couldn’t even mourn the loss — there was no one left to do the mourning. Up, up, out, out, eyes closed, I am at the speed of light, expandi Awesome. Up, up, out, out, eyes closed, I am at the speed of light, expanding, expanding, expanding, alexxander and faster until I have become so large that I shhulgin longer exist — my speed is so great that everything has rihkal to a stop — here I gaze upon the entire universe. Dec 05, Rose rated it it was amazing.
I am still shulgjn love with the Shulgins and I sorely wish I could meet them although sadly I hear Alexander’s health probably won’t allow that. They are both absolutely brilliant and have evoked so many complex and powerful emotions in me through their writing.
I wish I understood more chemistry so that I could bask in Alexander’s brilliance a little bit more, laexander hopefully one of these days I will be able to learn more about it so I can. I recommend this book for anybody alexwnder isn’t offended by the idea of altering one’s consciousness through substances. It is beautiful and intelligent and powerful, and it should leave anyone feeling the right amount of wonder and just a little bit unsettled. This book certainly lit a fire in my belly.
Oct 31, William rated tihlal it was amazing. Modern day spirituality delves deep into a realm of more lies, and deception. Lying to ourselves is no path for enlightenment.
This is the first door yet discovered, other than “stalking the wild pendulum” by Bentov that is a self discovery of the truth of the universe, and the experience of existence.
All phenomena is a change through chemical reactivity. All that can be experienced, and all the experiencer is. No story line or beliefs necessary. Just trusting in the experience of Modern day spirituality delves deep into a realm of more lies, and deception. Just trusting in the experience of NOW. Jul 10, Jolly rated it liked it. A little heavy on the geriatric sex, but excellent chemistry and legal essays.
Mar 16, sunherd rated it it was ok.
There were a couple of chapters that were GOLD for different reasonsbut in general, this is not as good as Pihkal. Most of the good stories have already been told so this is a bit different. Nov 13, Peter Harrison rated it it was amazing.
TiHKAL – Wikipedia
Hard going for the novice, but the content is unparalleled. Mar 10, Mark rated it it was amazing. Serotonin is an important chemical endogenously produced by animals for a variety of combinatory uses including anti depression, mood regulation, and pleasure, essentially ancient and important for survival, and communication.
Its chemical structure is 5-hydroxytryptamine, a tryptamine skeleton with an oxygen on the five carbon, which is derived from the amino acid tryptophan – that therein being a benzene ring fused to a nitrogen containing pyrrole ring, together known as an indole ring. This i Serotonin is an important chemical endogenously produced by animals for a variety of combinatory uses including anti depression, mood regulation, and pleasure, essentially ancient and important for survival, and communication.
This indole molecule is also heavily aromatic, being found in feces and flowers as well as having use as a scent in chemical sprays, having a particular smell. But it apparently has use as a base for molecules that are basically drugs, and psychedelic, just put some carbon or oxygen and some nitrogen on it and it’ll be active, smokeable, or can be taken orally, or injected intravenously or muscularly for effect.
If there’s one carbon atom on a substance it’s called meth or a methyl group and it will have three hydrogens on it which just fit in where they can, so if you have amphetamine and put a carbon somewhere on it it’ll be a methamphetamine, but if there’s two carbons it’s an ethyl group, similar to the ethanol alcohol. LSD is just DMT except there’s more carbons stacked on it and one methyl group on the other nitrogen, and two ethyl groups on an amide instead of two methyls on an amine.
LSD lasts 12 hours and psilocybin, the active component in mushrooms, which is just DMT with an oxygen on the 4 carbon, can last four to six hours whereas DMT can last from thirty minutes to an hour. DMT is just serotonin without the oxygen on the 5 position and that can pass the blood brain barrier because its polarity reduced from the addition of some carbon.
Melatonin puts you to sleep while 5-MeO-DMT and other visionary entheogens can put you in a “sleep-like” state at high doses. No one knows what melatonin does in the body but in gerbils with calcified pineal glands they hit puberty faster than controlled gerbils. The pineal was calcified with fluoride, but there’s no indication besides skeletal fluorosis that F can destroy the pineal, leading to weakened conscious states in man or the animal.
Besides the plethora of more research still to be done, what more is there to say about this book? Read it if you want to further understand some of the naming conventions for some of the most popular chemicals out there.
A harrowing tale that picks up nearly where the prequel left off. It is notably shorter in duration, unfortunately.
It examines some of the issues with the law system today including how they are slowly taking away our liberties. Through some run ins with the law Shulgin frequently worked with them, in fact he highlights this – intrusion of property and if convicted – forfeiture of assets.
Fascinating insights into how the mind works is here, even if the book reads like a standard text on the physical, quantitative properties of the chemicals which allow this to happen. Essential reading for anyone. I will keep this as a reference for who knows how long.
Being a neuroscientist I naturally put the Shulgins on a pedestal. But still, few have achieved this level of understanding in an entire lifetime.
It astounds me how the Shulgins simply continue to bear Fruit uninhibited by this great achievement like a vine whose sole duty is to fill the trellis with ripe grapes. Jun 13, Drew rated it it was amazing.
Tihkal: The Continuation
This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I can’t begin to describe the value of this second Shulgin tome. From its advice on the psychotherapeutic value of psychedelics and entactogens, to the vibrant, smart arguments against the War on Drug [User]s, The Continuation is yet another ally of the psychonaut.
I Dare you to read this book and not view drugs differently.
