MDMA + 2C-B: A Hyperspatial Heart-Opening 

Date: October 15, 1996 at 20:24:13

Dear Friends,

        I've noticed a bit of discussion regarding the combination
of MDMA and 2C-B lately within our community. Since I
finally had the opportunity to experience it recently, I thought
I'd add my impressions to the consensus. I started with 125 mg.
MDMA at about 9:45 pm. I then took a 50 mg supplement at the
90 minute mark and another an hour after that. The ecstasy
trip was rather typical to my experience of that substance; very
warm, lucid and heart-opening. The material was excellent;
perhaps not the strongest I ever had, but very clean and smooth.
Interestingly, it had a different appearance than any other
MDMA I have ever encountered. Most MDMA powder that I
have seen has a crystalline look to it, but this was chalkier than
usual, almost like talc.

        90 minutes after my final supplement, I took 45 mg. of 2C-B,
my largest dose yet. I opted for such a high dose because I had taken
some earlier in the week and wanted to compensate for tolerance.
It was incredible, amplifying, deepening and extending the emotional
warmth of the ecstasy and adding a profoundly psychedelic component
to the experience.

        I noticed something new to my experience of 2C-B on this trip
-- entities! I was presented with closed-eye visions of strange creatures
that looked like a cross between the type of animals that inhabit the
deepest, darkest regions of the ocean floor (jellyfish, luminescent
eel-like creatures, strange octopoids, etc) and sci-fi style aliens, plus
beings that looked remarkably like disembodied eyes. These beings
did not seem to have the same sort of urgent sense of presence
associated with them that I normally experience during tryptamine-mediated
entity contact, however. I also percieved a scene rendered in egyptian
motifs in which several humanoid beings that were apparently priests
or shamans performed some sort of sacred ritual around a highly elaborate,
ornate altar. Egyptian style symbology is something that I often encounter
on 2C-B; the bees often send visions of ankhs, pyramids, eyes of Horus and
such dancing across the insides of my eyelids. Does anyone else find this
common on this material? With eyes open, my entire visual field was in
motion and seemingly overlaid with millions of tiny gyrating multi-colored
helical structures that reminded me of DNA molecules. I also noticed a
wavy disturbance in the air around the outline of my body that looked like
the way an area of heat will make a pocket of air look kind of blurry. Could
my visual sense have been so heightened to the point that I was actually
seeing my own body heat? I wonder...

        This incredible state of consciousness persisted for several hours, and I
finally got to bed around 8:00 the following morning, almost eleven hours
after I had begun. I felt a little strung out the following day, but this was quite
tolerable in light of the previous evening's experience. This combination
certainly gets high marks in my book!
