Thread: Psychedelics in the casino

    From the article linked above -
    James Oroc, writing about the secret affair between psychedelics and extreme sports, says that taking psychedelics at lower doses, the “cognitive functioning, emotional balance, and physical stamina were actually found to be improved.
    For some, this might not come as a surprise, since Hofmann already spoke in a now famous interview that “Lysergic acid diethyl amide (LSD) is related in chemical structure to nicotinic acid diethylamide, known to be an effective analeptic.” (central nervous stimulant.)
    But there’s more, as James Oroc eloquently put,
    Virtually all athletes who learn to use LSD
 at psycholytic dosages believe that the use of these compounds improves both their stamina and their abilities. According to the combined reports of 40 years of use by the extreme sports underground, LSD can increase your re- flex time to lightning speed, improve your balance to the point of perfection, increase your concentration until you experience “tunnel vision,” and make you impervious to weakness or pain. LSD’s effects in these regards amongst the extreme-sport community are in fact legendary, universal, and without dispute. He goes so far to suggest that, to some in the extreme sports subculture, taking a microdose at any physical competition is considered cheating.

    Ellis said that he took it 4 hours before game time and he experienced laser like focus that he never had pitching straight.

    Hey, zg, If our paths ever cross again let's do our own "MythBusters". You can drop a dose then we can go to the batting cages. Crank that sucker up to 90 mph and you can take some hacks. We can post our data along with video here for the boyz. You're probably not the best test subject for this experiment, unless you have some hidden baseball skills I didn't know about, which wouldn't surprise me. If we discover something here I guarantee it wouldn't be accepted by MLB and their banned substance list , but it will be entertaining as hell. LETS DO THIS!

    More specifically, Terence McKenna, showed in at least one of his books, I believe Food of the Gods, that visual acuity and the geometric concerns of hunters were made sharper on psilocybin and this has been documented through experimentation.

    I don't know what the actual total effects are or how you would quantify them. Science is limited in its recognition of the world. There is probably a very large correlation to a large section of ability depending on self-knowledge and use. This is evidenced by a set of articles in not-so-alternative publications recently you may have heard of: one's called Rolling Stone and another came out after that in a small shit-lick of a mag called Time. The stories in here along with many others on the web confirm that a rather large subsection of professionals are using LSD at their "desk job" or what-have-you. Beyond obvious objective reality assistance, I have very recently renewed my faith in the idea that they could be instrumental in a proper subjective assessing of reality as well...
