Pharmacopeia: noun. What does this term bring to your mind’s eye? Do you find yourself assembling an archive of substances, reflecting on memories of addiction, recovery, or relapse? Is your mind a panopticon of disorder, a chaotic realm of fear and loathing from which you yearn to breakthrough? Have you experienced ego death, or reached the summit of the fifth plateau? Have prescription medications granted you the time to get to know your spirit, body, and psyche better, to experience a semblance of neurotypicality? Do you employ recreational compounds in your practice, and if so, what is your molecule of choice? Depict your perception of a pharmacopeia as you envision, either under, between, or over the influence. 

Deadline: June 01, 2021
