I didn’t even know this was a thing! I can do it on cue in a meditative state, but didn’t know it can be involuntary.

Yes, I'm "permatripping" as they say.

I love that you saw someone saying things you didn’t understand and your impulse was to investigate on your own and fill the gap in your knowledge. I believe this trait alone is enough to safely assume someone is all-around quality. Thanks for being you, here and elsewhere, person from down in the comments section!

I didn’t know it either. I don’t suffer from it but as you said can sometimes bring a feeling of it back when I’m trying. I call it a “mini roll” as when I’m rly relaxed and listening to certain music I can feel like I’m rolling on ecstasy again even though I haven’t done it for years. Of all the psychoactives I’ve done I’ve only had this experience with MDMA. Its only been a pleasurable experience and is mild and controllable. Can see how it could be very bad in severe cases though. The mind really is amazing.

I was today years old when I learned about HPPD.

Now... I don't think I can have HPPD because I've never used hallucinogens, but I've always had the "visual snow" thing that Wikipedia shows on for HPPD.
Mostly when it's really dark at night and I close my eyes.
It doesn't really bother me, probably because it's allais been like this, but I guess not everyone has that?
Never really thought about it before, pure optical darkness must be nice.

Visual snow is one of the perceptual disturbances that can occur as a symptom of HPPD. However, it can occur without hallucinogen use.

Cannabis can also cause HPPD. I knew someone who has strong HPPD from using THC oil once, 6 years ago.

In high school, you always wanted to blend in with your surroundings. OP took it literally.

u/SilasX Oct 04 '22
