This is featured on Psychedelic Frontier. The following report is from the September 18, 1914 issue of Science magazine, generously contributed to Erowid by archivist Michael Horowitz, as a silvered, heavily-aged copy from old microfiche. This stands out as one of the earliest known experience reports for psilocybin-containing mushrooms. Although the author identifies the mushrooms as Panaeolus papilionaceus, Paul Stamets suggests that Verrill’s identification may have been wrong and the mushrooms might have instead been Panaeolus subbalteatus.
The faces appeared in all sorts of bright and even intense colors–so intense that I could only liken them to flames of fire, in red, purple, green and yellow colors, like fireworks.

A very detailed DMT trip to read about, visually and textually! He even splits up his experience by the amount of time each stage took.
This was not a “fun” psychedelic experience – not a dreamy trip to heaven, lol. Yet it was definitely medicinal & instructional in many ways. I learned quite a few things about myself in the space of just a few moments or even seconds.
WAY WAY WAY beyond what I’ve ever been thru on large amounts of LSD or mushrooms. It happens so quickly that you have very little time to adjust, and once you approach hyperspace, things are happening so fast that it’s very difficult to resist ‘giving in’ to your own amazement. A-maze-ment puts you back into a maze of intellectual & logical comparisons. Once you try this game you instantly loose, because there are NO logical comparisons, no references to this weirdness and no impossibilities.
Highly recommended to read so go check it out!

That’s when the deep soul lessons began to appear. I could feel my energy being thrown around, from one extreme to the other. I was watching how my life was full of contradictions and what that was doing to my spirit. I wanted to be in a relationship, yet I wanted to travel the world solo. I encouraged people to live lives of freedom, passion, and love, yet I often experienced feelings of depression, insecurity, and loneliness. I advocated love and peace yet was all too quick to judge another. All these contradictions were fragmenting my energy, leaving me feeling disconnected and out of place.
Her trip sounds amazing, and I especially thought it was cool that she had a specific intention going into it. Also appreciated that she did extensive research on psilocybin so she knew the safe practices involved and kind of what to expect. Only thing I was concerned about when I read it was that her partner, who was watching over her, was inexperienced as well. But I’m glad that overall, she was able to relax and take as much from the trip as she did. You go girl.
