    People do, they just don't tend to be in Starfleet.

    Re: hallucinogens, I would like to try but I'm apprehensive

    My specific experience of anxiety is about spiraling, detailed imagined scenarios that spin into vivid life from trivial stressors or none at all

    This seems like a vulnerability

    I only did them the once but I found it sort of hard to spiral because your consciousness is so fractured

    I wept openly and then 20 seconds later I was laughing so hard at my brothers dumb dog I teared up again

    As long as you have distractions like people talking to you or cute animals around you won’t get “spun out” as the kids call it

    tbh this sounds terrible

    Again, it’s not really an experience you go into with the assumption of pleasantness. It’s more about intensity of experience and warping your experience in ways you did not know your brain was capable of. It breaks you out of your normal perception of reality which allows you to have new perspectives on things or challenge assumptions you had taken for granted about your relationship with the world around you.

    Right, but that’s as someone who already knows what they’re in for and how to navigate it. When you’re not scared and you have something beautiful or interesting around to appreciate it’s just a straight positive experience. But that’s not generally until you already have internalized that nothing about it can hurt you.

    Meanwhile, it’s not uncommon to have absolutely harrowing experiences, generally if you have something to work through it gets dragged to the surface.

    I wanted to try doing a spirit quest with psychedelics or hallucinogens but honestly given my love of horror movies and WH40K I'm fairly certain I'd just spend a couple hours screaming my throat bloody about being trapped in the Warp

    You’re an assassin who gets a new target for each level

    You might get specific instructions like don’t talk to them, or don’t kill anyone but them

    Gameplay is like Celeste with bullet time

    Super Gorey, good music

    And then between levels you drink tea, pass out on the couch, and talk to your therapist

    Went by the grocery store and saw one brand of eggs cost $7.35 for a dozen, double the price of the other free range eggs. I would like to imagine these luxury eggs came from chickens nesting atop velvet pillows and receiving full-body massages twice daily.
