'So! You take let us assume a third toke; long and slow. You vaporise and you take it in and in and in... and there is a sound like the crumpling of a plastic bread wrapper or the crackling of flame and a tone. A mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
and there is this.......
There is a cheer. The gnomes have learned a new way to say hooray.
The walls, such they be, are crawling with geometric hallucinations.
Very brightly coloured, very irridescent. Deep sheens and very highly reflective surfaces
everything is machine-like and polished and throbbing with energy but that is not what immediately arrests my attention. What arrests my attention is the fact that this space is inhabited.
And so like jewelled self dribbling basketballs these things come running forward and what they are doing with this visible language that they create is they are making gifts! They are making gifts for you and they will say ...'

    General CommentThe Quote is from a speech by psychonaut Terrence Mckenna, I believe about DMT, and his experiences. The song as a whole probably reflects this and the commonality between the presence of other beings in DMT hallucinations.

    General CommentYeah this is about smoking DMT. The reference to 'machine elves' and 'jeweled self-dribbling basketballs' appears in his other commentaries on the subject as well.

    General CommentAn interested connection I just realized...

    I was listening to Pink Floyd's track "The Gnome" off of The Piper at the Gates of Dawn and I realized that it has the lyrics "Another way for gnomes to say hoooooooooray". The lyrics certainly came before McKenna's speech. They may or may not be related.
