The Lucid Light Device
“A Ride Inside My Mind”
By John O’Brien A.K.A “The Overlord of Doom”
I sat down in the chair facing the Lucid Light Device or “Lucia” as it is lovingly referred to by its Austrian creators Dr. Engelbert Winkler and Dr. Dirk Proeckl, who had brought the machine over for Planet X’s Awakening Weekend seminar featuring excellent speakers like Anthony Peake, Stewart Swerdlow, Marcus Allen and several more and during the talks guests were chosen at random to experience the wonders of this very intriguing contraption.
I was lucky enough to take part and I can now deliver to you what I saw in my very own hypnagogic experience.
The device “Lucia” was housed inside what can only be described as a big spray tan tent or grow tent (something one of the Doctors pointed out seemed almost perfect for the experiment) the device itself looks like a fancy designer face lamp and I sat in the chair facing it and donned the headphones to protect my ears from any noise from the machine. I cannot actually recall hearing anything through the headphones like music but I do remember other guests commenting on how they liked the track being played.
As the machine started up I closed my eyes and soon began to see colours and shapes whirl past my vision and collide and merge in what can only be described as a somewhat collideoscope effect. There seemed to be several moments where I could not tell if my eyes where open or closed. Surrounded in a beautiful pink light, a long black and yellow garter snake style serpent flew past me and began to coil up and around itself and I seemed to glide next to it until the colours and scene flies apart to reform in a circular spiral of purples and pinks that vibrated and pulsed like the funny optical illusion pictures found on social media sites. At its centre a Reptilian eye stared back.
The next scene involved more purple skies and I was stood on rolling hills that seemed to be made thousands of bowling ball sized gold spheres. I remember at this point having great difficulty distinguishing if my eyes were open or closed, I was also told before hand, looking at Lucia with your eyes open for briefs moments does intensify the experience to a certain degree. I can remember being able to see the bridge of my nose and cheeks and when I shut my eyes tighter it looked like my face was all hairy like Chewbacca.
The next scene I remember made me feel like I was inside a huge red sphere that span around me in increasingly faster speeds. I seemed to float closer to the outer wall and when I touched it the spinning stopped and a part of it opened up to reveal a green bug eyed being who stepped forward with outstretched arms then stopped in front of me. Then it opened its mouth and a massive black and white chequered speech bubble ballooned out of his mouth...
Then the machine stopped and the ride was over.
The whole thing seemed to appear like a simple cartoon that went from 2D to 3D and back while having sensations of tremendous speed and momentum and it did feel like some kind of ride. I definitely felt it has had an effect.
Thank you Planet X Team and Lucia for such an amazing weekend!
