So, a drunk Dylan comes home from the BEST night of his life, meeting awesome new people at my bartending course (which i passed with distinction) who actually listened and agreed with my crazy technology/singularity/life is a dream/language is everything/drug rant..
And he decides to smoke what was left in the pipe of DMT.
MY GOD, WHAT A SPACE I WAS IN!!!
Multidimensional is the best description in the English language.
Murmured voices of entities off to the sides of my vision whispered pure truth to me.. My entire life made sense, and as if the days good events lead perfectly up to it..
Before I properly knew what I was doing (I had just walked into my room, saw the lighter, and was like “PIPE!”), I was sitting on my bed taking my third hit of DMT, the now familiar ring came on, and my vision blurred. I put the pipe down, arms felt strange and numb, I sat head in hands, eyes closed, and suddenly I was there; with the throbbing tentacles of imaginary colour pulsing and coiling, and everything in the day up to that point was perfect and made sense. Life changing to say the least! I saw everyone I had met tonight, and every one of my friends that I know already, and my parents. I understood them, and I understood my connection/relationship to them. For some of them, I was very sad for them because they aren’t in the best of places right now. The same for my parents.. But I knew it was okay, because it won’t be long before everything is alright for them!! For my new friends, I saw INFINITE potential, and wonderful friendships in the future with them!! As I saw this, I realised that this information was coming from the entities surrounding me, just faint presences, speaking in strange deep murmured tongues, which seemed to create the coiled visions I saw. They seemed male, like wise aliens not so far advanced than myself (advanced enough to navigate the DMT space, however).
It felt like I was there for so long, and that I learnt so much (and i did!), but suddenly I remembered the body I was in, and I slowly started to come back. I still sat there with eyes closed though, thinking through everything that I had just seen. That multidimensional space is so beyond words. You just have to go there and see it for yourself!
Peace and unity my brothers and sisters.
Beauty and love await us.

If Earth Had Rings
First off, they would be really pretty to look at. They would also dominate the sky in both night and day at exactly the same place as they would never rise nor set. And at night you would see the Earth’s shadow swing across the rings, like in the 4th photo here.
However, life would be very different on Earth if this were the case. Nocturnal animals would have a hard time being nocturnal, as the light reflecting from the rings would illuminate the night.
Because we are closer to the Sun than Saturn is, the rings would be more rocky than ice, making them less bright but still pretty bright. In fact, you would see far less stars at night (living anywhere other than the equator or the arctic circle) because of the light pollution and not to mention ruin most meteor showers because of that.
During the day the rings would block sunlight in certain regions of the planet creating wild weather cycles and effecting plant life as well. So basically, they would be definitely pretty to look at but they would also make a whole lot of things screwy.
