UNDER THE INFLUENCE

 

After experiencing drastic changes in my environment, I looked for other experiences that might profoundly affect my perception of self. So I came up with another experiment where everyday I took a different drug or intoxicant and drew myself under the influence.  Within weeks I became lethargic and suffered mild brain damage that wasn't irreparable.  I am still conducting this experiment but over greater lapses of time and presently only take drugs that are prescribed to me by a doctor.
