    This is bullshit.

    Those cats only show up on DMT.

    Did you make that GIF Xeni? Because whoever did has stolen my heart and my brain.

    Godspeed, Dr. Hoffman. You truly went where no one had gone before.  I, for one, had my life changed by what you discovered.  I thank you.

    I have friends who observed Bicycle Day recently, and to great effect.

    Obligatory plug for my friend Jason Willis’ fantastic, trippy PSA on the dangers of catnip.

    This is what happens if you look at that cat gif on acid…

    Oh, wow.  It’s NOT a cat, man…well, I mean it IS a cat, but like, it’s like also a BUTTERFLY, man! I mean, look at the SHAPE man, it’s like the CAT is also a BUTTERFLY. Man.

      Garbage in, garbage out.

      But if you make like the natural philosophers of yore and follow your nose, soaking up all the most relevant clues to the nature of reality, your subconscious on acid can connect a whole bunch of dots for you and totally. blow. your. mind.

      Sometimes when I trip, I can start to see the fractal nature of reality around me writ large, and it’s like a key to infinity… and IMO anyone who has experienced such is pretty likely to find your frivolous comment to be an insulting bit of straw-manning… man.

    Just so you know, in the RSS feed the non-animated version and the animated one are both displayed. Makes the epilepsy warning a little pointless. :(

    You have to “mouse over” the cats to animate, man.  YOU HAVE TO MOUSEOVER MAN!  MOUSEOVER!  *grabs shoulders, starts shaking on each syllable*

    Coincidentally, Hoffman started his experiment with self-administration on the now famous ‘bicycle day’ at 4:20 in the afternoon…
