After playing a 2 1/2 hour long camp out DJ set in the moist and lush Skagit Forest consisting of bass, fractals and energy manipulation (aided by the divine derivative of the ergot fungus) I sat down around a glowing fire and the warmth of over a dozen friends with energy still ecstatic and rippling from the vibrations. Another sound traveler (DJ) began his voyage, and while looking into the burning embers (and seeing all 5 platonic solids) I visualized a large nearly formless triangle emerging from my third eye, and as soon as I realized what I was experiencing, the form passed through me, inhabiting me with pure consciousness, devoid of any piece of ego or sense of time. I was able to look into and through each of my friends (all merrily engaged in personal hedonism) and see their soul, their accumulated karma, their true being, and their full human potentiality. After this point I am not sure of the order of events, as time was not significant.
I felt and visualized my kundalini twisting and writhing within my sacrum, sending out intense energy, causing my lower body to shake and quiver. As the pure golden energy began to twist and climb up my central channel (reminding me of a very wobbly light-saber), it exited through my crown, disappearing and unanimously connecting my crown (and my top-knot) to an ethereal and connective energy source, seeming distant yet familiar. I breathed mindfully and then began to follow the source up my energy channel and out of my body. At this point, one of my friends reports I fell asleep for about 30 minutes. What transpired during this "dream" is still somewhat fuzzy, but It gave me insight into the origins and possible meaning of my existence: I was shown our galaxy, then solar system, then our little blue and green orb, but as I approached the sphere to examine it and to try and gather information - I was pulled in by a strong, forceful, but matriarchal presence (Gaia?), which I quickly glimpsed in the form of rainbow strands of energy covering the outer atmosphere of the planet. I was then pulled into the core, where my vision ends, but the flow of pure wisdom as consciousness was still present, information was still streaming into my noggin. I was given a sense that I am an ancient extraterrestrial being, representing a coalition of lifeforms, perhaps an ambassador - taken in by Earth's protective energy for my soul to be recycled through the different lifeforms on our planet, in order to be shown the true importance and preciousness of Earth.
This insight is corroborated by my early childhood recurring dreams, which consisted of my floating soul as an orb of light navigating a never-ending labyrinth confronted by masked faces, many familiar, and all ever-changing; and another recurring dream of what I now believe to be the living world below Earth's crust of my being as a two-dimensional entity, surrounded by a tactile sense of other beings, no sight, and a constantly uncomfortable feeling of suffering, which was somehow transcended and resolved by surrender and insight (1D = Earth's iron crystal core, 2D = living world of microorganisms that give rise to life and the surface [manifesting primordially from deep sea vents], 3D = physical world, 4D = collective consciousness, etc...).
When I came back to the fire, a new very damp log had been added to the fire and most of the group was staring at it. As looked at the log, I saw the bark moving and writhing, twisting into fractals and beautiful dark shapes, eyes of ember looked at me from the very much fire-resistant log as golden honey sap dripped from its base on to hot coals, pooling in a viscous lake. I checked my visuals by waving my hand in front of my face to check for tracers: none, totally clean. As my mind boggled over whether this was the doses or something deeper I caught a glimpse of a very shiny pair of eyes (filled to the brim with shen) looking in my direction. A friend of a friend had joined the party during my DJ set, and I was never introduced as the next morning she was gone before I woke, and the pure flow of consciousness inhibited any spoken word from me (After trying to join in on several conversation points I was able to see the sacred geometry and energy around my vhisuddha chakra: it was very faint, either blocked or impaired). I recognized something very deep and poignant within her eyes that took me back to a very spiritual experience I had with SCI at Horning's Hideout, where people dressed as extraterrestrials (complete with a flying saucer) entered the crowd as part of the climax to the night. A girl in a half black, half white catsuit (one of about 10 dressed this way) danced with me for a song and then faded into the crowd, when I tried to go after her, the crowd closed me off to that directionality, and as I saw her stare back at me, a very heady girl friend took her into her arms and moved her hand across her eyes once, pushing a very strong influential force (majik?) at me, turning the girl's head and forcing my attention to the stage, when I looked back thirty seconds later, she and her friend were gone. I will never forget that dance and experience, I have never felt more closely connected to another human in my life, and I only ever saw her eyes (and I believe I have experienced love in its various forms). Even writing about this now brings deep feelings into my mind. I believe if this person is not the same from Horning's than she shares a soul source with the one I will continue to search for until I find my answers.
An insight I was given later that morning while only a few of our party remained around the fire to hear the Swainson's Thrush fractaled song wake the forest, was that of the "world tree", Yddgdrasil. The roots of the tree represent internal thoughts, desires and individual sub-consciousness which becomes a clear stream of unity with meditation and mindfulness. The trunk represents our intentions, actions and state of being (the bark is the ego), insight is possible here with ego-death or third-eye opening. The branches and the canopy represent our connections to others through dreams, archetypes and karma. Consciousness here is attained through lucid dreaming and yogas. I also believe this representation to be folded on itself (roots are interconnected to the canopy), much like the torrid shape (doughnut) of 3D folding on itself (Möbius strip is 2D folded, a line is 1D folded), as many quantum physicists believe the universe to be shaped - to give the illusion of a constantly expanding infinity.
