Howdy, glad to see this new community form!
« on: April 27, 2017, 11:14:01 AM »
Hello, Im glad to see this new forum and happy to be a part of it. Ive been a member of DMT nexus for some time, under a different name, and hope that this site attracts the same kind of thoughtful members and intelligent posts as that place, and develops into a community and resource of its own. Ill keep this short, just saying "high!", but as far as who I am within the community- I live in the great Northwest of USA, in one if the first states to legally recognize the rights of cannabis users to do so, and I promote the growth of real-life psychedelic community of intentional users, practitioners and activists for beneficial responsible psychedelic use in my city. I enjoy writing as a hobby and occasionally update a wordpress called The Practical Tripper that deals with intentional psychedelic use.

Do I have to do letter verification for every post?

Welcome Nyarlathotep!
Great to have you here. What a great background of experience you have to offer. I share your hope that this place will attract the same caliber of members that the Nexus does! Would love to hear more about what you have learned in promoting and nurturing real-life psychedelic community--both the advantages, challenges, and potential pitfalls that you have faced.

For now we are requiring letter verification for every post but we are thinking of modifying that in the future. We think that it may help people be more intentional with their posts and also will keep out any spam bots (we had a pretty massive attack by a spam bot not long ago).

Thank you and welcome to the 5 Hive!

I thought I'd pop back in here to let you know that once you have made 5 posts you will no longer need to use the captcha. :)

Gotcha, cool. Thanks for the kind welcome, I hope this can grow into a good resource for a little-understood substance.

Here in my city, we've seen the growth of several groups, all that seem to serve a different aspect of the psychedelic community, from more social get-together kind of thing to a more educational-minded group that hosts topic speakers fairly regularly. As with any group of more than one person, there are going to be conflicting egos, hurt feelings and the occasional disaster, all of which we've suffered. There have been individuals who have wreaked havoc, who approach the whole thing as some sort of egoistic way to enrich themselves one way or another, and who don't like it when they don't get their way but we've weathered it.  Overwhelmingly the work of a few individuals who see the cognitive liberty/harm reduction/entheogenic therapies co-movement as being important enough to dedicate their time and energy to selflessly continue to see this community grow.   

5meo DMT is a topic of fascination for many of our members,as well as myself, it's such an interesting substance.

Welcome Acasta Gneisss,

Apologies for my delayed response (slowly & steadily we grow). I do hope this may prompt you to share more, regarding your experiences & wisdom, within this forum.

Community movement, quality articles & intentional development of

the cognitive liberty/harm reduction/entheogenic therapies co-movement
are all vital focal points in this time.

I would appreciate learning more from you, & am very keen for the community to begin discussion in regards to the fractured nature of the ego that is reflected in both individual & collective mind sets, for the sake of correcting illusion & returning to Truth.

How do we know Truth? We will hum a unified song of humanity, when Truth is revealed ...

T.Y -
