TrippyContest4 - The Fibonacci Destination

-Greetings from the fractal space-

-I hope you are having a smokey day-



99% of the people in the world have their fair share of ups and downs in life. The last 1% are people born with a golden spoon in their mouths. Given everything on a silver plate. To us regular people, life feels like it is shooting you in a rocket flying in a spiral formation upwards towards the infinite cosmos among the stars and wonders of the galaxy. On the other hand, sometimes life feels like it has pushed you down a hole as you spiral downwards the darkness and emptiness of the abyss. But that's life, right? Would not be interesting if everything came on a silver plate. On occasions people get lost in what to do. So to help themselves, people find ways to easy the burned and help them make the choice easier. Those ways can be the simplest thing like smoking a cigarette, to the most unusual and less accepted by society. To get your hands on psychoactive substances. To some, it is a visual and interesting game that they play around with. To some it is an intense and fascinating spiritual adventures that can bring them answers which they seek. Sometimes those adventures give you answers and "force" you to make choices that can drastically change your life and even who you are deep down. I belong to the latter. Obvious to those who know me.


This is my entry to the #trippycontest4.

Buckel up. This will be a bit of a long read.


It's my life


In my life I have gone trough quite a few changes to my very being. Making a drastic decision that had a big impact on my life and the way my life plays trough. One of those time was my decision to move to a Germany instead of Ireland. Which was my first choice. I was stubborn and hard headed about wanting to go to Ireland. Even trough I have been speaking near to perfect german since I was 4 years old. At that time I had just finished my 2 year govement contract to work in the hospital kitchen and get further education as a chef. I was out of a job and hunting for one. Croatia is a country which is slowly having its economy destroyed by the hands of the corrupt politicians that stand at the top of the country. Ruling us with dirty and underhanded methods. Installing fear into us with police brutally and unjust decisions that impact the whole country. Of course jobs are also a very big problem in my country right now. To escape that, many people (including me) have fled the country in search of jobs and better lifes. It has been estimated that over 10% of the population has left the country by now. Mind you that Croatia is not big, but we do have a population of almost 4 200 000. That makes for almost 420 000 people that have left. Almost half a million people.

Jobs are scarce and those who are available, have such insane conditions that a newly "cooked" chef will have a near to impossible time in finding a job. Unless they have connections or excellent talent and skills as a chef. There is a joke among the people. It's that a chef they look for has to be "20 years old with 30 years of experience". I was lost. Without a job and money. Living with my brother and his then girlfriend (now wife) inside a house that we rented near our parents. It was a day like any other when an ex-friend of mine called me and asked me if I wanted in on some Lucy. It was not an everyday occurrence for me to get my hands on it and I was in dire mental problems and in need of some answers. So I accepted. When they brought it over I was over the roof. After a few jiffs and chill, 2 of them left and only one friend stayed. That's when we both took our hits and waited. After the usual 45 min to 1 hour it begun.


What?


We gonna play Pink Floyd again the whole night, right? Of course we are. What are you showing me now? What was that on my screen? Its so pretty and weird. What is that? It's some kind of spiral. But what kind of spiral? A psychedelic one. Fractals and spirals. Fibonacci style. The beautiful mathematical representation of perfect natural spiral existence. It's so beautiful but weird at the same time. It looks familiar. But it's the first time I'm seeing this. But it's so familiar. What? It's everything. It's mathematics. It's the flower next to my house, it's the wind that blows outside, it's the house of a snail, it's the movement of the humans, it's the pattern of my thoughts. Its the movement of the humans. Wait, I said that already. I'm a human, right? I'm just the star dust of a dead star, right? It's so bright and colorful, so spinning. Going in a spiral formation. It's mathematics, right? Wait I said that already. I/you said that already too. What's that on the wall? It's spinning. It's a spiral. Why is it spinning in a spiral? Why does my/our wall look like a snails house? What am I/you thinking? What am/are I/you? Am I/you just the dust of a... Wait I/you said that already, don't say it... dead star. Damn I/you said it. Why did I say it? What am I? What are we? Are you rolling a jiff? Wait, did I think that or did I say it out loud? He isn't responding. It's in my head. Just my head. Why are you moving like that? Why is he moving like that? Why is he moving in a spiral formation? Is he moving? Am I moving? What? Yes it's my turn. I don't feel it. Is that only tabacco? No? It's a jiff? Why are your words going in a spiral? Why is the world going in a spiral? Why are we alone? Why is the world only emptiness. It's the night? It's an empty night. Only we exist. Whoa. What was that? Did I say that out loud? No you didn't. What? Did I think? Yes you did. What? Why is this happening? Is this a bad trip? Will I/you stay stuck in it? What? No... What? What? Is he saying something? What? Please leave. I/you want to be alone with my thoughts. What? No you don't have to leave. What? Could you please leave? I want to be alone. What? Yes, I/you am/are wondering. Yes I/you am thinking. Yes we are stuck. What? Goodbye. What? Who? Is it cops? What? Hey Bro.


Just as they entered my friend smiled to me and told my brother and his gf that they should be careful. That they scare me.


What? He noticed? What? Thank you. I/you hope so too. I/you hope so too. Shoot, not again. What? I/you don't know. What? Yes I/you am/are fine. No I'm/you're not. What? You gonna clean? OK. Did I think that? Did you say it? What? Loop, loop, loop. I'm stuck in a loop. What's that? And that? Why are they doing that? Why are they cleaning like that? Why? Walk normally. Don't do that. Why are they walking in a spiral loop? Why are they cleaning in a spiral loop. It looks the same. Same as the snail, same as the wall. Same as my/your process. What process? Thought process. Are they really? Am I/you really? What? Will I/you find? Find what? A job. You/I can't find a job. But I/you need a job. But there is none. There is plenty. Irland we want. It's in english. I/you can write. You/I can speak. German, I/yiu can't write, You/I can speak. What? But far. It is a far away place. More far then Germany. I/you have Noone there. Alone. I/you will be alone. All alone. I/you don't want that. I/you want someone. I/you need someone. I'm/You're going to bed. Did I/you say that? What? I'm going to bed. Look at the stairs they are so flat. They don't go up. They go round and round. No, they go up. Pull ourself out of it. Who ourself? Me ourself? I/you can't sleep. Of course. It's lsd. Don't say it out loud. They can hear it? Who can hear it? We all alone. Why am I/you all alone? You/I don't want to be all alone. What? Why am/are I/you downstairs? We're not. Where am/are I/you? It's my room. I'll go downstairs. What? I/you can't sleep. I/you know it's the lsd. Pass me a puff. I'm going to sleep. I/you can't sleep. Why can't I/you sleep? Am I/you bothered? Bothered by what? Our loneliness? No. My/your life. Perhaps. My/your decision? Yes. That's it. My decision. What decision? To go to Ireland? Am I stupid? I have Noone there. I will be all alone. With Noone as backup. I'll go to Gemrnay. I have friends there. He invited me. I'll go there. What? It's darkness. Why is it dark? Is it death? It's peaceful...



The next morning when I woke up I could still remeber the feeling of that trip. That uneasiness, but completion. I remembered everything that transpired. I remembered the loop. The feeling of helplessness to my own thoughts. In my head I had split into two that evening. I called my best friend in Germany and told him I have decided to come to Germany after all. Irland was too much. It's too far away and I had Noone. I went downstairs. As I was walking the stairs I started to have this repeated feeling. I felts like the loop had stuck with me somehow. Not leaving completly. For a while I was afraid that I got stuck in a mental loop of imagination. That I was still siting on my bed arguing with myself. I talked to my brother and his girlfriend about it afterwards. I told them "because of the trip I have decided to go Germany instead of Irland." My brother and I didn't see eye to eye on what psychedelics can achieve for a person. To him trips are nothing more then a visual playground. Dont get me wrong. That's also a good way to go at it. You can be more aware that it's just a trip and it will fade away eventually. It can help you stay mentally on a right place. To me it's more. It's a journey that will lead somewhere. His gf (now wife) understood. She knew what I ment. She said something in the manner of "acid can clear out your thoughts, help you think more clearly, cleanly and purely about certain things that bother you". That he could accept. It sounded more as a real examination for him. He found a good one. A rear one. I want them all the happiness and cannabis in life.

That day made me realize how much of a fool I was. Thinking I could move just like that to a country further away then I ever was. With Noone there but myself. Some would say I could have realized that without the trip. But I didn't. I needed a hard push down the twirling spiral to be able to realize that I am not falling but flying. To this day I never regretted that decision. Life in Germany wasn't and still isn't easy. With my first boss being a wanna be mafia. It was hard but I pulled trough and I am living the life. Not a luxurious life but I am living a good life. I have friends near me, family that moved here later and I do the things I love. Moving there change my life and perception of the people around me. It helped me realize what aintruly wanted and who was truly my friend and who was not.


Now my message to you dear reader is...

Don't ignore the signs. Doesn't matter if you belive them to be a spiritual guidance or a manifestation of your psyche and its stress. The signs will show themselfs in one way or another. Trying to guide you towards the path that you yourself deep down know but sometimes, aren't able to accept.

WAIT, YOU MARRIED YOUR BROTHERS X-GIRLFRIEND? IM GLAD YOU FOLLOWED YOUR TRIP. ITS LIKE IT WAS WARNING YOU THAT YOUD BE STUCK STAYING. NOTHING WORTH IT IS EASY AND A SIMPLE LIFE BUT A STEADY LIFE IS ALL ANYONE COULD ASK FOR! IM HAPPY IT WORKED OUT FOR YOU. mUCH LUV

·

What? If I wrote that then by mistake. But I checked a few times before I posted. I have to re-check again. Thanks. I tend to follow them. Bad or good. I try to take something out of you. If not spiritual then psychological about myself.

Very well said. Life can be real challenge and struggling for one and can be very pleasant for others, though the later are very few.
But yes, if you take life as a challenge and as an adventure, then life can be much more exciting and colorful.

·

Life is an adventure. Like an rpg in a game. You have the set of skills that you grind and improve to use in future challenges.

·
·

I came across a 2-part post on Steem which brilliantly discusses life as an RPG. It's called: Real Life: The Roleplaying Game :) - part 1 & part 2

·
·
·

Oh that sounds cool. But it is like a game. You aquire skills and you polish them to be used later in life.

·
·
·
·

That's it :)

·
·
·
·
·

Yap. That's how I see life. I like the calender years from that standpoint. They give me an overall level system 😎

Good luck bro!

·

Thank you Bro ✌️

I love it !
Good luck with your entry to #trippycontest4.

·

Thank you ✌️ let's see how it goes.

good post but not professional arranged..

·

What an odd comment. What's that supposed to mean? If you really wanted to criticize, you'd have put some clues. I guess this is just your huffy reaction to being downvoted for not posting anything cannabis related. So, you saw the most popular post and thought to yourself: "Grmpf! Why does he receive upvotes while I don't?! Gotta' bring this little s***er down!"

Am I right, @junaidabbaspk?

Don't say "thank you", @zuculuz! There's really nothing to say "thank you" for.

… sorry for spamming this post. But I hate to see people discouraging others. Nothing against critique. There are definitely things to improve from a "professional" kind of view. If you want to know about it, I am happy to tell you in private. But this comment wasn't helping. Not at all. And it comes from someone who I (being a «proffessional») wouldn't call a professional! Don't ask bullies about your value.

·
·

Well he did say nice post 🤷‍♂️ I would love to hear your tips on how I could improve and further develop my style.

·
·
·

I dislike my own comment evenly right now. :)
sorry. Got carried away. I'd love to talk about reading&writing. And I know at least one other author on this blockchain who would probably like to join, @unnamed, don't you?! Thing is: Every text is always improvable.

We could do some kind of radio show in our discord, eg?! About writing and all sorts of other stuff. How about that?

·
·
·
·

I know what's it'soke to have your emotions make you do or say what you don't want or mean. I'm like that sometimes myself. I like the idea of how that sounds.

·
·
·
·
·

the idea of this talk, you mean?! Well, not to name names, but unnamed doesn't like the idea too much …
I still do. Maybe we find some others who'd like to that … and you and I can talk at any time anyways …

·
·
·
·
·
·

Why doesn't he like the idea?

·

Thank you. What would be professional arranged then in your opinion? I work by my style. I don't work by what other defined as "professional". If you work only by how others set it up for you then you will never find your individuality. Also, I'm not a professional writer. It's just a hobbie to me.

0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89...

·

What? 😂

·
·

It's the Fibonacci sequence: every number (apart from the first two) is the sum of the previous two numbers).

That is the 'what'.......no idea about the 'why')..... PS I get it now, it's in the title of your post :)

·
·
·

Ah so. I'm not good at math so I wasn't aware of the exact numbers. I get the principle behind it but not completly. I just like the idea of a perglfect spiral. Hahaha

·
·
·
·

Here you go my friend, a 'perfect spiral' in the first min or so :).

·
·
·
·
·

I love this video. This is definetly one of the best videos I have seen.

·
·
·
·

It"s quire simple:
EVERY number is te sum
of the two preceding ones...

·
·
·
·
·

I have always been bad in mathemathics. Never really studied thale mathematical aspect of it. I mostly just esmired the perfection it has.

·
·

You don't know? THIS, is THE Fibonacci sequence... ;)
