Psychedelic Mushroom TRIP 4K ~ Who Am I?… A Psilocybin journey

6 Jul

Today we have something special for you here on the DPV. Steven Anthony Khoury has created a beautiful one-hour video designed to accompany the first hour of a tripping experience and gently ease the tripper into the experience.

As Steven Says:

“I wanted to create a vid that can hand hold people through the first hour of come-up,  gently start their trip positively, catapulting them into their psyches with good energy.

This video was designed to remind us of what we hold dear to our hearts:  children, happiness, nature, music, the universe, fire, speed, water and love, etc….  It’s not easy to depict so many thoughts into one piece of work, but with a psychedelic video there are no rules.”
The video, which is dedicated to MAPS (Multi-Disciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies) and to the Beckley Foundation, is a description of Steven’s own tripping experiences, he says. It is made of original footage which was shot over a 3 year period in many countries: Australia, US, UK, Guyana, Canada, Lebanon, Malaysia and Brazil, and stock footage obtained from friends and colleagues. Aftereffects were added with Autodesk Maya.
The video has been tested and trialed by a many of Steven’s friends who used it while breaking through to the other side. Steven says that “though not absolutely necessary, the vid does require a person to be inebriated in order to appreciate the introspective thought processes that it tries to portray.”
For my part, I can say that I never saw a one hour psychedelic video which grabs your attention, but this one seemed to do just that and yet keep itself introspective, enriching the experience with beautiful stimulation and very good vibe. So, next time you trip, consider this as an accompaniment video.

A fine Data-Mosh-Trip, ‘Metal Fence with Dry Leaves’ from Spanish video artist Mateo Amaral. Translates: “Jungle wind, ocean waves extending as much as they can reach the inner senses and much more too. A network is stirred by sounds of leaves, the network separates things. DMT circulating in the brain.”

Jason Silva’s videos

3 Jul

Jason Silva’s series Shots of awe takes mind-transforming ideas and warps them into a 3 minute YouTube format. Though Silva’s enthusiasm and optimism can be a bit over the top for some, you’ve got to admire the craft and energy that’s put into making these videos. Not only are they magnificently envisioned on the visual level, but as someone who tried his hand at producing mind-transforming videos for the web back in 2007 and 2009, I admire the great job Silva does in seemingly effortlessly translating big, complex ideas into the hyperactive format of online media. Silva is a smart guy, well versed in psychedelic thinking, and names like Terence McKenna, Timothy Leary and Robert Anton often come up in his raps. He describes his videos as “philosophical espresso shots; condensed trailers for ideas.” Indeed they work like appetizers, and hopefully they do not satisfy completely and lead viewers to deepen their exploration of the the big issues also after the video has ended. Here Silva explains why we don’t need to fear artificial intelligence And here he explains why “the idea of the singularity is awesome” If you check out his channel you’ll find Silva  has created dozens and dozens of videos over the past couple of years. Recently the YouTube channel Seeker Stories did a story about Silva and his creative process titled “A philosopher’s mind trip”. An interesting viewing.
