You are freaking out, man

A few years ago I heard a radio broadcast of Joe Rogan describing what it was like to take Dimethyltryptamine, a potent psychedelic.
Having never taken my own mind-altering adventures past good ol’ beer, I sat, enraptured, listening to the effusive description flow forth from the ex-Fear Factor host.
As Joe put it:
“Literally, you are transported into another f***ing dimension. I don’t mean like, you feel like you’re in another dimension; you’re IN another dimension…there’s f***ing complex geometric patterns moving in synchronous order through the air all around you in three-dimensional space.
And it’s like they’re arteries, except there’s not blood pumping through them there’s f***ing light. Pulsating lights with no boundaries and you couldn’t really understand it. And there’s an alien communicating with me.
There’s a dude who looks sorta like a Thai buddha, except he’s made entirely of energy…and he’s telling me not to give in to astonishment…there’s a beat like ‘WOOOO-DOO WOOOO-DOO WOOOO-DOO’ and there’s all these f***ing complex patterns moving around…and I am f***ing freaking out.
And it lasts for about 5 minutes.”
Suddenly, I had a very apt description of the face-melting gameplay that I’ve been grappling with for the past week.
