Why time seems to slow down when high

    I think I've figured out why time slows down when your high. It's simply because when your high, and more importantly when you're enjoying the high, you are truly in the moment. There is no future, past, but rather a pool of consciousness that is just there and that is the present. When you're high, or when you are in a constant state of "superconsciousness" I.E. advanced practitioners of meditation and yoga, you become aware of the present moment and realize that is all there is. That's why colors are brighter and food taste better, because you can truly "taste" it and you can truly "see" it for the first time. I remember one of the first times I was high I came to the realization that being high is like seeing things for the first time, and it truly is because you are in a higher state of consciousness.

    Think about it.

    That theory has been said in so many different ways, and I believe it too. When I first theorized it, I thought of it as opening your third eye, or taking away the blind fold that life has given us. It let's you see the truth. We aren't on this planet to monopolize industries and be millionaires. We're here for a much greater cause. We're alive. We're living beings. We're life. We are the future, and the future is dictated by our choices in the present. People have evolved so far into corruption. The end is near.

    Indeed... i also had the same realization after i started to smoke... for me the things had again the same "old shine" of our childhood things, when everything was more interesting... :stoned:

    Your brain can receive more information with your cannabinoid receptors activated.

    yeah...I think it's probably more scientific, but equally as interesting and fun.

    Oh shit the first poster deserves an applause, really great way of putting it. While we're on the topic, me and a friend were blazed and were making hot pockets.. so I'm just sitting there swaying back and forth, playing air guitar and listening to music (there was none playing, but I was just so blitzed I could hear it, you dig?) and we were waiting for the microwave to get done.. and my friend, John, gets my attention and points to the timer. It says 3:50, and we both gasp. Then we look away, wait, what seems like 30 seconds, look back and it says 3:48; we gasp again. Time felt like it hit a dead stop, or atleast a slow groove, if you know what I mean. It was pretty funny, we were laughing our asses off and cursing the thing.

    Oh yeah, and before you ask, those were the best hot pockets we ever had.

    Peace :jointsmile:

    Yeah, I remember the first time I got high, I had that feeling of seeing everything for the first time again.. it lasted a few days, and I felt very peaceful and happy about everything for about a month afterward. I realized that it was the true antidepressant and the reason it was illegal was to keep people from realizing the potential of the herbal allies we have in this world, and to get everyone hooked on the pharmaco-industrial complex. Nowadays I am abstaining because I need to find some work... the only problem is, I just don't have enough drive to actually go out and get work... I think I suffer a chronic malnutrition of cannabinoids. :(

    yep time seems to slow down but actually its your perception of things and the information yo can take that goes sky high. Also, you can get faster or more productive since your concentration is maxed out, for example, when I do the dishes on a high well Ido it quicker and better and without additional efforts but if do it with no high well its a real pain in the ass for a start and doin it as fast as I'm high is possible of course but again such a pain.

    It's because you're stepping in Rice Krispie's treats.

    I concur to this idea, and I'd like to expand it to state that it's also the reason that you forget what you just did, or what you were doing.

    You're in the moment, and the more you're into that exact moment, the less you're into other moments, they don't concern you as much as the one you're enjoying NOW. I find that when I write lyrics when I'm really high, I have a difficult time because my entire focus is on *right now*, not what I did half a second ago, and not what I was looking to write half a second into the future.

    No, that has to do with your cannbinoid receptors in the hippocampus which is resonpsible for Memory and the regulation of hunger.

    i havent had this happen for a long time.... i miss it... but last time i remember it happening really big, is i was driving with some friends and there was one trippy song playing, and it seemed like it was going on for hours, and i looked and it was only playing for a minute... all though i do know when i was high last night i got out my old legos and started playing with them! best time i have had in a long time even though i never actually finished anything, just played with the gears and stuff.. i have been smoking some of the best dank in the area, and i just cant get the feeling of time going stopping.... im just stoned now...

    I think it's because our brains get faster while we're high. In relation, time seems slow. :stoned:
