‘Altered States’ Trip

29 May

The zenith of a mind blowing psychedelic trip. This one is from the incredible movie “Altered States” directed by Ken Russell (1981). The film is loosely based on the pioneering work of isolation tanks pioneer John Lilly, who was also a sedulous psychonaut and conducted some of the world’s most interesting psychedelic research of his time by using psychedelic drugs in combination with lengthy periods of isolation inside isolation tanks – a practice sure to arouse some hyper-psychedelic results.  This particular clip is saturated with esoteric and symbolic content, some of it rather dark in nature, however I find it to be very revealing.
