I would have to say this is rubbish the majority of that crap he took wouldn't do much. Then he also throws out the notorious G13 which is a myth on
the street and crap in the lab.
From the pictures, it seems like it's more like "trying to paint what each drug might look like" or "expression of each drug" instead of painting
while under the influence of the drug.
I mean, you take cannabis, and you are inspired to actually draw a cannabis leaf?
It looks like he tried to paint what it would have looked like if he took the drug, instead of just trying to draw a neutral picture of himself under
the influence of the drug. Also, some of those drugs would probably mess up his mind so much that he wouldn't be able to paint coherently.
Besides, a different drug each day, when some of those things can last or give flashbacks for weeks, or even years?
So even if it's true and he really did take those drugs, how can we know that the effect of the previous day's drug (and its widthdrawal symptoms) was
not a factor in how the day's picture came out?
Or the drug he took a few days ago.. or the combination-effect of different drugs?
I notice lot of those were things like psychiatric 'medications', and there weren't things like L.S.D., Salvia, or Datura on the list. Psilocybin has
been thrown in, like an afterthought. And cocáine? Seriously?
The test would be more credible, if he was trying to paint THE SAME, EXACT PICTURE each time, and not 'vary' the theme, clothing, perspective or
drawing style (from 'realism' to 'impressionism' to 'a four-year-old-mongoloid-with-bad-hand-eye-coordination'). Also, what is with the cannabis
leaves and other 'expressions' of what one might think it could be like to actually experience the drug? Like, why draw 'crazy eyes' in some pictures
(as if the character in the picture is really 'high'), and more normal eyes in some pictures?
There's just so much fishy about this story, but it is certainly an interesting study in how people are ready to believe anything they read on the
web, WITHOUT QUESTIONING IT AT ALL.
People have posted different thoughts here, but not many have questioned the claim, although there is absolutely no proof. Some scribblings of a
mediocre 'artist' is no proof of anything.
The '___' test video, where an artist draws the same picture sober and 'under influence', and where the artist can't tell the difference between the
two images, when under influence, is way more revealing, realistic and believable (though there's no real evidence that that's real, either).
There can't be a real apocalypse (revelation of information and truth to all), until people at least learn to question claims, without blindly
accepting them. What do we REALLY know about this guy? Someone writes and article and posts a few pictures, only some of which are any good (which
means, it'd be easy to fake), attaches a crazy claim to it, and everyone just believes it without blinking.
Note; I am not claiming to know anything about the alleged test - perhaps it happened exactly as claimed, perhaps not. But I am not believing it (I
don't believe anything anyway, there are better alternatives, belief is permanent, conclusive and blind, and thus, dead - I like to keep things
I am questioning it, because it smells fishy - or in other words, intuitively, it feels like there's something wrong with the whole thing, and the
images certainly rather look like someone tried to paint what it might look like if he took a certain drug (a cannabis leaf on the forehead, REALLY?),
instead of drawing the same, exact picture under different influences.
And the claim of "different drug every day", and not releasing the information about amounts (I mean, we were not told how many grams, how many pills,
etc.), just seems very suspicious. There's definitely something wrong here.
It's easy to also notice the curious, almost congratulatory tone of it all, instead of condemning drug use. People seem to think drugs are cool, here.
Not a good sign..
Btw, what the heck is wrong with this forum? You can't even write DRUG NAMES, without them being modified, altered or censored? Is this the freedom of
communication we want to have, where we can't even have a normal discussion in the internet anymore, because every other word is censored with some
excuse or another? Geez. I can understand things like see you en tee, but cocáine? That's almost like censoring 'coffee', for crying out loud!
