  1. Hey - first of all: cool reply, thanks My bad ... I need to do more in English ... doing my best Yeah, I would agree ... that's why it would be super difficult -- you need to make a "black hole" (or whatever) that then evolves into an universe like ours ... question is, can these factors in some way be determined during its creation - maybe they can, because we exist too, you'd just need to record every particle movement in the whole "huge blob" and replicate the process to achieve an exact copy. Maybe this can be done by "initiating the big bang in a certain way"? If this universe was created from outside, chances are that the structures and ways used to create it will probably way exceed its own specifications in capacity, meaning that it might indeed be possible that "they" (the creators) have the possibility to trace each particle movement ... maybe even easily: they could have made a bunch of universes and saw who of them can make the jump to self-evolve into new ones just like we do it with bacteria in petri dishes in numerous bio-labs around the planet... I guess that makes it a certain assumption that "this has already happened" - meaning: this universe has been created from outside. And you're right, there is no way to know - or at least no way to prove. Whether the universe itself has consciousness is up to belief (it's not an unpopular thought however, as far as I have heard). But, to borrow from solipsism ... I myself have a consciousness, therefore in this universe there exists at least one consciousness that seems to care about these things. And as I don't wanna be superficial, I think there are many other consciousnesses too - such as the ones from my fellow humans, those from animals ... and maybe (likely?) also higher consciousnesses from higher evolved beings. And yeah, spoken out loud, I would want to prevent the death of the universe. Because if the universe can "die" (however you define it - big freeze, big crush, big rip, big mac (aka "cardiac arrest")), it will not be eternal. And if life is not eternal -- it makes no sense ... quoting Anthony Rother's "Leben": "if [life] is limited in time anyway, then what sense does it make to be alive?" = "denn wenn es [=das Leben] sowieso zeitbegrenzt ist, was für einen Sinn macht es zu leben?" I am more than zer0 So there's already consciousness in the universe that does not want to die and, in my case, also does not want the universe to die - and be they linked or not, maybe it's justified to therefore speak of the "universe's consciousness" even if it had none? That worries me far more! So we can not create the thing inside of our universe because then it itself will die alongside if the universe dies ... we need to escape outside and "light the fuse there". But how to do that? I thought that outside of this universe there is no possibility to "exist". Great ... but somebody has to do that...? Thanks, I checked it out, that theory saves it ... yeah really, it does ... it could be an explanation and I hope that is it... I don't know but the thought of all this ending at some point of time, no matter how many trillion x trillion years away, horrifies me. However, I have to confess, an eternal expansion is equally horrifying if you think about it. Even if you, by the power of mind, reduce this "space time expansion" to a mathematic number that just ever increases, and even reducing that to a steady mere "flow of an energy" ... it's not making me lose its terror the way it should ... it's like this hallucination of flying fast - bloddy f*kin fast - faster than you can imagine and still ever increasing, crossing not lightyears, but light-aeons in a fraction of a fraction of a second and the world shrinking indefinitely sometimes when I am falling asleep... 00:30 a.m., the perfect time to have a total mental freakout, isn't it? PS: I think I need to make a break from threads like this and come back to enjoy these discussions only in moderation, otherwise I'll really go crazy ... so don't wonder if I check back late next time
  2. Hi, I just watched this video: I think it's a really good piece - maybe some of the physicians here may wanna watch and comment if these theories (or are they more?) are correct. The whole thing not only tells you how tiny and insignificant we all are (so maybe only watch it if you can take it ... 3am is maybe NOT the best time for an existential crisis, contrary to what some comments there suggest) ... it also contains the meaning of life, I would say. In the last quarter (around 24:43) there it is said that there may be (theoretical?) possibilites for a great "atom smasher" that can concentrate massive amounts of energy at a single point to open a "gateway", a "baby universe" ... well, no matter if that is true or not, I think that says it: Given the fact that we are facing the death of everything that exists, this objective of escape must be our meaning of life ... because if the universe had a consciousness, would it not want to prevent its death? To sustain eternal (physical) life, this device must be created, used and the next universe needs to emerge. But that's only half of the work! You then need to find a way to inject the plans for this great machine into this newly created universe so that the inhabitants of it can at some point in time construct it and "fire up the next cycle" - they need to do the same thing and the process needs to be repeated over and over ... but well, then you got it: ETERNAL LIFE ... from the universe's point of view. Do you agree? ...if you followed me so far, great ... now, to spin it a little further: Can this already have happened? Can it be that a community of forces (maybe an effort of several very advanced beings in a previous universe) has, in their dying universe, created the atom smasher and thus created our universe? And then they have tried to get the plans across in a form that us beings "understand" - in the form of RELIGION and MATHEMATICS. Maybe they even split the plans up equally and thus every religion has received the key to one piece ... Mathematics, by the way, may be a separate "force" that connects these pieces ... but they only function together, meaning that humans have to overcome their differences and prove themselves worthy and work together.... well, that last part might be BS actually - because why putting more work in the process if the universe just wants to keep alive ... in truth, maybe several other more advanced lifeforms in this universe have got the plans already and are working on such an atom smasher...? Also by the way, the original universe will die ... a copy will be created and ideas and plans can maybe transfer into it ... if lucky ... if not, the new universe must figure out all the sh*t itself, which is why maybe it has chosen me for this rambling right now ... it seems to already be super desperate if it chose me .. PS: I only brought this religion stuff up because yesterday night I stumbled across an old black metal album that I own and I read up on the vocals ... which were actually bible texts about the apocalypse ... you can tell I didn't sleep much but read that stuff instead ... and in those texts it said (summed up) that those wo succumb to god will survive and the rest will perish ... so I thought, while putting this in context, that god or "his ways", as the bible may point out, may contain the keys to such an "universe death prevention device" ... may this be logical? PPS: Yeah I know, I should lay off the drugs - only problem is: I am not taking any. Didn't even drink last night. Maybe that was my mistake
  3. Hej ... it's odd then that Shpongle apparently will come to F.L.O.W. in Austria: https://www.goabase.net/festival/flow-festival-2019-10-years-anniversary-feel-love-on-weekend-flow/101396 then again they say: "SHPONGLE DJ Set" ... maybe that's the point here ... you are apparently going for a live act But when Raja Ram is doing it all himself (it looks like that), I wonder, isn't the DJ set more work than with the band...? Anyway I'm reading between the lines that Raja Ram might not be touring as much anymore as he did before. So best would be to catch him one of these days if one still want s to see him...
  4. Hello... So I have made a slight change in plan, but it may do the project good: I think about doing only a single ... meaning, starting off as a single ... if we get enough, we'll do the compilation, but if not, so be it. 2 artists (will not tell names yet until confirmed and agreed that they'll be named) will be the starting point. If not even these 2 are on board, I guarantee it will not happen. Reason: these are two artists very integer to the character RTP (me ) - the project would make not so much sense without, it would be "just a collection of tracks"... With these 2, I can start with a single. If it gets more: good because then it'll be a single with more tracks. If we get over 4, it'll be a mini compilation. If we get over 6, it'll be a compilation. But it's all optional and totally relaxed for me - the only fixpoint are the two starting artists and that's also whereI'll invest the most energy. opinions welcome -- cheers
  5. Thanks for the insight Imba, I really appreciate it. I got a pretty "nice" and positive argument up my sleeve why artists might be willing to support or, at least, hear me out ... that's a big upper, otherwise I'd just come across as a hobo with a deluded dream But more on that later. So I guess it will be a physical release only, if my money is involved. No digital. Only if all tracks were free that would become a digital release. I have an idea how the financial part could work: offering the artists a small amout for, say, 200 pressings. All rights for the tracks will remain at the artists, the tracks could be released by them somewhere else too later... If repressings were made, I will ask around again if they permitted a second run - for the same amount of money. Again 200 copies. Or less or more, if seen fit. I hope that's a good plan? Fingers crossed...
  6. I am not on FB, don't like it ... I guess I'll just start with creating my own (RTP) soundcloud account ... I don't wanna make it from the Skeletone one as that is not only me and I don't wanna mix up the projects ... makes things only harder... So ... percentage sounds like a hassle. Think I'll just ask them how much they want. Maybe I get lucky ... lets see ... I will not tell here though unless it's signed off by the artist that I can have the track for public release I think it would be fine to say rights remain at the artists ... if a repress is done, I'll just do a round mail and ask people for permissions again (and no answer within 2 weeks means OK). If there are any more tips, I am happy to hear
  7. Hello, maybe this is a bit unexperienced question - but bear with me: I have this idea (call it "dream") of making a compilation. I would like to write to few artists that are dear to me if they got any tracks. It will be only the artists that I select, "my favourites" you may say. It will be bigger names among them (as in my endless naivity I think they might have a track they are willing to part from for money?). Questions I have are: 1) where to get the contact info and 2) how to do it ... I mean, only the fewest people will give me things for free. How much do artists call up for a track ... what is common? And how are compilations made ... are the tracks signed and paid in advance or is it possible to make a deal that the artists will be paid in % of revenue created (which probably won't be much, even though I think the release is going to be a blast in my opinion )? Anybody got some experience and willing to shed a bit of light on this? I don't wanna come across as a goof. I can administer psynews ... but I never did anything like that, always left that to other people who I thought were better at this than me
  8. That is cool news, I missed out on Extended and it was way too expensive to buy ... they still want 80 euros for it out there on the used market... A very little part of me feels sorry for the collectors of the original one though. After all these years of me wanting it, I am actually hesitant to order. Then again, it's a piece from a bygone era ... a time capsule... Oh and what an odd place where it's released ... "Sidereal", never heard of ... but they also release Solar Fields newest one there, so that's his place now? ... What about Ultimae ... a bunch of dear artists seem to have left there in the last years ... strange, isn't it?
  9. I do think that Pryda - The End is a great intro ... not only because it is, but because it would be a creative act to start a set with the end (I say thanks to Lemmiwinks for this tune ... he posted it on this forum first - and sparked my love for Pryda forever.) Even better though is Atmos - Fill The Hat ... although it has a long breath: Third pick is Noma - Soon ... it's all purpose for a progressive set imo: If that was no good for you, you can try Etnoscope - Sunrise ... you never go wrong with Etnoscope imo:
  10. thanks for listening and posting Yeah I like Better Things a lot ... even though it's a pop tune ... the vocal line was probably the main reason for the "cheese factor", but it just turned out like that and felt natural. For the professional sounding factor I can't credit my mate enough ... he's who made it possible and he sat there tweaking the tune more when I was already leaving for the third ciggie because my ears were shut and my mind spun the sound round endlessly (in german we say it's an "ear worm")
  11. Hey, thanks so much for listening and posting here, it means a lot to us. The credit for the improvements in production I will pass on to my mate. He's the one doing the mastering and the technical details ... if it was up to me, we would have probably sacrificed quality a bit more here and there, but thanks to him we did invest the extra time to make it that little better I'm quite with you what you say about these questions. The track "Trump Rising" was not done with Trump in mind ... it just came to my head as we mixed it down and searched for a name, because I wanted "Trumpets" in the title - but then I realized, hey, why not name it like that. The track was made when the elections took place and we didn't know who would win - the posting of the track on Soundcloud was much later though(*). It was not our aim to go political ... we were merely not that serious about it ... but later we saw that it actually even has a meaning when you are not serious ... and maybe this track is growing over our heads, title-wise. But hey, it was a brain fart of mine and I like it ^^ But it's interesting what a "title" and a small question can sometimes bring up in conversations and I like to ask a little and just reflect on people's answers I am very happy that you like Out of Kicks. I am surprised myself how good and tight this piece is screwed together ... but when my mate is in the flow, nothing can stop us I have to admit, we have no vocalist (if you know one, hit us up with her) and we had to pick these vocals in the first track from a range of samples ... maybe a bit on the cheesy side, but it turned out very good still in my opinion. I do like a bit of cheese on my meal... You should have listened to the rest of the vocals, gosh, some of those were awful ... you can hear some of them in "Boese" (*) the fun thing is, I didn't even really want to post it back then either, but I thought "uh oh, maybe Trump is making such a bad job he's throwing himself out before we have the album finished and then we can't use the title" ... and so I did it, as a promo kind of way. I have - spoiler - the idea that we make a track called "Trump Falling" (or something like that) where the trumpet should be taking a nosedive melody-wise ... but we'll have to wait for the right mood and inspiration for that one...
  12. [Disclaimer: the text below is subject to change, I will remove this as soon as I am totally sure with the text ... the only thing certain here is our second album Second Strike.] We got tired of goatrance not being the way we like it. So we created our own. We got tired of electronic music not being the way we like it. So we created our own. Well ... the first line is indeed how it started. But as we made our second strike, we rather concentrated on the second line and - went over it. And currently we are at the third. So I would say. the third one is not visible here You see, the border is only in your head. It's not about the border and it's not about us. We are merely two drops of water, floating in an ocean. Does Goatrance go with trumpets? That was the first question. Does Goatrance go with trump? Does Goatrance go with politics? and what does trance has to say about it? These things we answered in Trump Rising. And then ... it broke loose. Some say Trump did the same. He broke loose aswell. So... You may find that we have broadened the perspective. What was still "goatrance" or at least related to it on our first album, has become not the center anymore. It has practical reasons. Making the tracks on the first album "On The Run for the White" was painstaking as you may find the melodies stick to your head. Well, they stuck to ours more. We made the tracks and therefore may be the persons in this universe who listened most to it as we tweaked this part, cancelled this, rewired that ... if you are in a room with one of our tracks for more than 6 hours in a row, things happen. Try it out And furthermore: nobody can give you the experience so significantly than experiencing for yourself for example how frickin' easy it is to throw some dubstep sounds together after your brain has become numb. It really was ... interesting. And yes, we used one of these parts taht we did. We just had to. For us. For our sake. Also, my mate has become very fond of using vocals. We unfortunately had not the perfect singer, so we had to dig some up ... and well, for that, the result is perfect in my opinion. And the goa, the goa ... I tell you something: if a track is not goa, does that make it bad? Not in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, we love goa. But damn, I really like the new tracks: precisely Better Things, Trump Rising, Dubster Interference, Out of Kicks and Tricky Names. That's just a plain good result in my opinion. We are currently breaking another barrier (don't worry, we will get even better, there is something really good up the horizon but I cannot yet reveal ... I just say: it is the land of sound we are ending up in once we have completed the journey of that second album ... and yeah, we have _almost_ because what was left is to release the album ... but that is done hereby) ... stay tuned. The phases are: START -> LEARN -> FULFILL. "On The Run..." was the start. "Second Strike" is the learn. Soon we will FULFILL! What's left to say is: please, do enjoy this piece and leave a comment. I am very interested what you say. Cheers RTP
  13. Hey Tsotsi - thanks and cheers. We appreciate that you took a listen. Yes our production has not been spot on all times ... learning by doing I have found out that in the studio of my mate we use the same speakers as Astral Projection in their studio video though ... so the hardware seems to be there... If you check back, you will find out that there is some new stuff ... first there was Trump(ets) ... ... and then we tried some more new elements out and experimented a lot, my mate was keen to use some vocals for example ... we only had some cheesy ones lying around for the Better Things track ... but we think it has become something cool, although not as goa anymore as you might think. And then there's the Dubster Interference where we used - the title says it - dubstep ... and discovered how actually damn quick and easy it is to do such dubstep things, no wonder why it's become so popular ... fortunately these experiments are not taking the upper hand over the main purpose though, which is "if we don't like stuff, we try making our own": I think we still have some great tunes there ... even if some of them are "not so goa" anymore.
  14. Cheers for also returning early from a party I must say that my rest of the night was pretty shitty tbh ... I felt like I was on some substance ... visual artifacts, agitation, not able to relax, could not lie down. I have that a little bit after parties sometimes, but never experienced it to that extent - and I wasn't even on location that long. Maybe that bad air was more harmful for me than I thought. It certainly was more than tobacco smoke as far as I could smell and probably not even just weed... It took me ages to come down and I maybe slept two hours Dust and flu masks are not really suitable I think, they only filter out dust, not smoke ... plus I look like a clown with that. I think it must be either a gas mask or a better form of the dust mask ... such as the people wear who are doing spraypaint jobs. I found an ad for this thing called "smokebuddy" ... it's an air filter for social smokers who don't wanna pollute the air around ... never saw somebody using it, but maybe it works in the other direction aswell, meaning: when I breathe in through it, it filters the air...?
  15. Hello together I just returned from a party early ... venue okay (not perfect, but not too bad), people were nice ... it was all quite fine, except that the air was vile in there. I got problems in there ... not real breathing problems, but I couldn't enjoy dancing as I wanted (I want it intense, mostly) because I felt out of breath and kinda sick when breathing deeply. There was lots of cigarette and MJ smoke and other bad fumes in the air. Problem is I could not go out and take fresh air as well as I needed, because it was quite cold outside and I was sweating a lot and the logistics with my warm clothes were not as manageable for me as I would have needed 'em. After a while the headache I had at the beginning of the evening (and which settled down long before I arrived) returned, telling me that it's time to go ... so I went. Do you go to indoor parties? How do you feel about the air in there? Is there anything good that can be done in my case ... I cannot wear a full gas mask as I am already now (without accessories) sweating like a pig when dancing. (Plus it will probably scare ppl off) Are there good air filters or masks around? Does the old trick with a doctor's mask and Vapo Rub do anything substantial to the air quality? Or do the mint oils just open up the lung more so that you take in more bad fumes? cheers RTP
  16. lol awesome ... please have some oldskool in-your-face mongolian slangstargh after this: (I understand as little as you (probably, if you're not Mongolian) -- and that's what makes it awesome in a way imo)
  17. A real diamond in the rough is A.Geh Wirklich - B-Romi Party: Eichare Gschichtn san verbraucht und ausg'lutscht Es hobt's glaubt dos Eich do kana draufkummt Den Waunsinn glaubt ma kana Bevur mi do wer anspuckt Moch i a Foto und stö's auf Facebook translates in: Your stories are used up and dull You thought that nobody would notice Nobody's gonna believe this craziness Before anybody's gonna spit on me I'll take a photo and upload it on facebook (afterwards it's repeated with "video" and "youtube" in the last line) It's a song about the local Hi-Society culture, you'll probably understand nothing, not even if you speak german ... but that's the language they speak in Vienna...
  18. Okay, I didn't know much about Paracelsus or about his more questionable methods ... I just wanted to say, the guy was quite famous and he propagated this method, which makes sense to me. That sounds really interesting ... I wonder, why do you know so much about it, did you study this? Just curious... The "raising serotonine lowers dopamine" statement was from a questionable source, I'm skeptical about it, as said. But the Kanna could be an idea that seems interesting to me. Apparently it can be smoked or also sniffed (which I would prefer) ... I'll certainly keep it in mind.
  19. Thanks for the clarification ofthe run off drugs. So these should not do any harm ... less effective maybe, but that's not the end of the world. And sorry, I did in fact _not_ mean homeopathy up there. The statement that "similar cures similar" (german: "Ähnliches mit Ähnlichem heilen") has not been established by homeopathy, but by Paracelsus, who's quite a famous guy concerning the foundation of medicine as far as I know. More specific: (from https://academic.oup.com/toxsci/article/53/1/2/1673334 ) I found this out because I talked to a friend. That statement is popular in the homeopathic community too, which is why I confused it. I did not mean to take substances that don't contain any molecules due to their high dilution... The correct term in my opinion for what I meant was probably microdosing -- but also not in the sense in which it is talked about out there... ____ However, thanks for the info that this micro-dosing (or whatever my idea is called) actually might increase sensitivity ... that would be the exact opposite to what I intend. Also I read up on it more and it says that cannabis tolerance may re-set "quite quickly" within few days ... that would be totally against my goals - working on micro doses for the purpose to build tolerance and then having it all pop back to normal within few days having to begin the painstaking process once again... But are there any other methods to lower dopamine? A website suggested to take St. John's Wort, because it increases serotonin, which in turn will lower the dopamine. However, I am skeptical. I have tried St. John's Wort already several years ago (for a few months) and it was doing me good, but once I decided to leave it, I promptly got some panic attacks ... really bad stuff ... don't need that another time. I want it in the exact opposite direction and with maybe, a slower ascent to the "peak tolerance" that my brain adapts so slowly that it won't trigger panic "on the way up", so to say.
  20. Hey, I sometimes see colors too when I close my eyes. I think it's linked to migraine... Although sometimes annoying, it can be a nice combination with goatrance. Yeah, I fortunately almost never have to use them. But I wonder ... do they go bad? The ones I have ran off in 2016 ... expiry date wise. One more idea I do have though - and that one might be something. How about homeopathy? I mean, the basic scheme of it (before it comes to these "micropotents" and half-esoteric stuff that I don't know what to make of) is: to counter a disease with a drug that does not prevent, but that triggers it. The person takes mico and nano-doses of a poison that triggers the symptoms he tries to beat. Then, in the long term, the body will adapt to the microdose and "gets used to it". If you then stop taking these microdoses, the sickness will be "healed" because the mechanisms to counter the bad effects will still be active in the body. Sounds like a creative move, doesn't it? I'm sure you can get homeopathic doses of cannabis and LSD on the free market... [edit: I mean, you can get them 100% legal and legit] Anybody with more experience around who can tell me if that deduction of mine is right or if it's completely wrong and I might damage myself?
  21. hey thanks for the posts ... I have thought about it and I agree - it may not be the right way to tackle my problem if I tried these medications without thorough medical supervision... On some other (german) forum somebody else had this plan too and the people there really advised him not to do that. Guess I'll just stick with my rule number 1, which is: to keep a benzo in the house because "a benzo should end every bad trip" ... no matter if induced by lsd, cannabis - or my body's own mind. Do benzos go bad? I think the ones I got are past expiry for more than two years already -- shows you how often I need them
  22. Hej so I've been having the thought that I am - naturally, rooted in my psychic condition - constantly 'on the same "level" as some other people when they have taken a reaonsble amount of cannabis'. It's nothing new, I have been thinking this for several years already. Maybe you can even find a post where I said it, but I may not have expressed it a whole lot to the level that I want to make a thread about it. But now is the time ... because I wanna know what's what - and because I have an idea. First: Can this even be true? Of course I don't have a "stash" in my body that's constantly giving off THC, that woud be a dream for some of you, would it? I mean, that I might have higher dopamine levels (say dopamine for starters, I don't know which substances in the brain are also affected by cannabis) than the average person ... levels that the others only get to when they smoke a reasonable amount. And when I smoke, the dopamine gets too high for me quickly ... explaining why I can't personally take much of that substance (I really can't, sad but true). Heck, maybe it's even TOO HIGH when I'm sober already. Which brings me to: Second: If I took a medication that decreased the dopamine, would it help me get "normal" / "sober" ... whatever you call it? Coincidentally, these medications are named antipsychotics. Uh oh. But seriously. Is it advisable to be experimenting in this direction? What do you think? Anybody has taken these medications already? What do they do? Is it advisable only to reduce the dopamine or which other substances should be reduced? And what if it is not the level of the substance but the way I react to it ... maybe my body can harvest LOADS of "reaction material" from a relatively little amount of dopamine (the dopamine shall be my example), which is why even tiny increases such as a little bit of cannabis have profound effects. How to change the way I react to it ... are there possibilities? Can I make myself more "immune" to it? I'm looking forward to hear your thoughts about this...
  23. Ulf Söderberg would have liked that:
  24. Jep, they are superb ... Trä is my favourite aswell. It's such a pity they don't have this sound anymore nowadays, with the female singing ... but anyway. If you know anything that sounds in that direction, feel free to mention ... I always look out for some. Somebody should do a psychill remix of Tina Vieri ... the vocals would be very welcome, I don't know of any psytrance that has finnish singing in it. Wait ... there's Etnoscope. They have swedish singing in "Odins Kraft" ... and if you check out the samples from "Länge Leve Livet" and "Frejas Kraft" (from their Soundcloud page), it's in there aswell (and much better imo)... Etnoscope are awesome
  25. Yes, Anthony is great ... I save the studio talk video for later, definitely have to watch it, but I'll do it with proper focus. Love what he's doing. Yes, CBL have "a bit" returned to the acidic soundscapes with their last album, but it's by far not the same as the old stuff. I like old CBL -- their sound was warmer ... not so cold ... and kinda sad.
