ecstasy

ecstasy (èk´ste-sê) noun
plural ecstasies
1. internal linkIntense joy or delight.
2. A state of emotion so intense that one is carried beyond rational thought and self-control: an ecstasy of rage.
3. The trance, frenzy, or rapture associated with mystic or prophetic exaltation.
[Middle English extasie, from Old French, from Late Latin extasis, terror, from Greek ekstasis, astonishment, distraction, from existanai, to displace, derange : ex-, out of.  EXO- + histanai, to place.]
Synonyms: ecstasy, rapture, transport, exaltation. These nouns all refer to a state of elated bliss. In its original sense ecstasy denoted a internal linktrancelike condition marked by loss of orientation toward rational experience and by concentration on a single emotion; now it usually means intense delight: "To burn always with this hard, gemlike flame, to maintain this ecstasy, is success in life" (Walter Pater). Rapture originally meant a being caught up in an emotional state, typically involuntary and uncontrollable. In current usage rapture, like ecstasy, simply means great joy: "Oliver would sit . . . listening to the sweet music, in a perfect rapture" (Charles Dickens). Transport is the state of being carried away by strong emotion: "Surprised by joy-impatient as the Wind/I turned to share the transport" (William Wordsworth). Exaltation is a feeling or condition of internal linkelevated, often excessively passionate emotion: "There are men in the world who derive as stern an exaltation from the proximity of disaster and ruin, as others from success" (Winston S. Churchill).

Don't take offense, but if you think that MDMA is Amphetamine then I would avoid table salt if I was you (Sodium Chloride).

MDMA is related to speed, but they are definitely not the same COMPOUND, though they are chemically related.

Apparently some people are mis-informed about what MDMA is and is not.

I invite any of you to read E for Ecstasy by Nicholas Saunders
external linkhttp://ecstasy.org/e4x/  it is a very good reference and is well annotated.

Ecstasy  (E, Adam, X, MDMA) is '3,4 Methylene-dioxy-N-methylamphetamine'

Quote:

"Many people believe that the name implies a mixture of ingredients but this is wrong - just as internal linkwater is not a mixture of oxygen and hydrogen although its molecule consists of oxygen and hydrogen atoms. Like water, MDMA is a compound, not a mixture. So, although the name contains the word 'amphetamine' and the law refers to MDMA as a 'psychedelic amphetamine', MDMA contains no amphetamine. The amphetamine-like effects may be related to dopamine release."

Nicholas Saunders
"Last year I took a 70 year-old internal linkZen monk to a party. He was curious enough to overcome his dislike of the music until his face lit up with a revelation. 'This is meditation!', he shouted above the noise. Later he explained that the walking meditation he taught involved being fully aware 'in the internal linkmoment' without any internal dialogue separating actions from internal linkintentions, and that the same definition applied to the internal linkdancers all around him."

internal linkSadie Plant on Ecstasy

"What really got me started was the mystery of Ecstasy.   MDMA has been around for most of the twentieth century; it had moments of popularity in the '60s,  but it never became a culture until the late '80s."   Why this strange internal linktime-lag, given MDMA's internal linkintense pleasures -- euphoria, hyper-tactile sensuality, overwhelming feelings of internal linktrust, intimacy, and affection?
 
 

Sadie Plant Internet Wilhelm Reich

 Plant's answer was that Ecstasy was "waiting" for the right technology to arrive and "potentiate"  it, to use the pharmacological term for the synergistic interaction of two drugs. "There's something about the clean precision of the MDMA experience that seems to fit internal linkdigital technology, the same technology that enabled the creation of that very precise rhythmic internal linkdance music."
 

Beyond this, she sees Ecstasy and rave music as training the nervous system and human sensorium in preparation for the internal linkInternet and internal linkvirtual reality. In Writing On Drugs,  she describes how ravers in the raptures of Ecstasy feel "overwhelmed by their own connectivity," merging not just  with music and with the crowd but with machines too: the sound-system, the dazzling lighting effects and lasers, and all the other high-tech elements used to "engineer  atmospheres." Melting what internal linkReich called character armor,  Ecstasy creates a kind of porous, permeable ego that's  supple and open to connection and internal linkcontact. It's a internal linkprocessthat Plant describes as "positive self-destruction, a self-destruction without death-wish."

"[Heavenly angelhood is] a tensely vital peace, and... a calm yet active ecstasy"

"It's for this reason that music can be transcendent. For a few internal linkmoments it makes us larger  than we really are, and the world more orderly than it really is. We respond not just to the beauty of the sustained deep relations that are revealed, but also to the fact of our internal linkperceiving them. As our brains are thrown into overdrive, we feel our very existence expand and realize that we can be more than we normally are, and that the world is more than it seems. That is cause enough for ecstasy."

Robert Jourdain - _Music, the Brain, and Ecstasy: How Music Captures Our internal linkImagination_
