Genius can come from meditation and drugs.
Call it creativity if you want, but when you're in that state, you get a pure stream of thought. Undistracted. Perfect for focusing on a certain idea.
Seems like DXM (300mg) + Cannabis (blazed) + Music (trippy electronica) gives me a window into this state.
You can also get genius from the natural abilities of a person, usually someone who has access to this state through a mental disorder or just a weird life. But the point is that a drug can be a useful, more reliable tool to get there too.
I've tapped into this window to survive. To fill in holes. To fend off suicide. Is that an addiction or a survival instinct?
