Previously on I. They. Evolve.
Deep in the French abandoned zone, Thomas has chased Colonel Cinq-cent into the ruins of a rural village, where inside a bakery he attempts to strangle her to death. Elodie arrives just in time to save the Colonel, and she makes Thomas swallow a mysterious mushroom before knocking him unconscious.
As Thomas drifts off into his forced slumber, the effects of the mushroom make itself known.
The following is a trip account of what Thomas experienced, in visual form, and with accompanying visions, dreams and music courtesy of a twenty-minute late-90s psychedelic jam in which the author decided to play guitar – he usually plays drums (never give a drummer a Fender Strat!). Warning: the following trip account may cause flashbacks and a heightened sense of reality and unreality, in particular pertaining to the zeitgeist of the late 20th century and early 21st century in regards to internet use as it was back then.
The Atomic Mage does not endorse drug use, but, man, when we did, it was a blast.
