Cast away is a very special movie to watched stoned.
Being stoned makes you fall further into the reality of the movie and for a movie like cast away, that means you really succumb to the aura of being alone and isolated from the rest of the world.
It actually spurred me onto the idea of not speaking, for days on end, to see if this had any effect on the way my mind perceived things.
Surprisingly, for me at least, it did have an effect. I noticed that the thoughts i started having by the end of a few days speechless stint were different in character from the way i normally saw my thoughts proceeding.
My thoughts became less confounded by the filtering process that condenses your thoughts into words and were more abstract, more visual in nature.
It reminds me of the movie into the wild, where the protagonist tries to get as far away from other humans as possible, and although i dont recommend this film as much as cast away for setting the platform for a venture of this character, it seems the protagonist may have been after the same thing i was after.
I have a hard time explaining exactly how it feels to purposely try to distance yourself from normal human interaction, but i promise you, the effects are not negligable, and certainly interesting.
I know there must be some people on ns who connected with the protagonist in into the wild, perhaps embarking on solo hikes, journeys, trips etc experiencing what i am talking about first hand.
As a youth i always had issues getting my thoughts across- writing papers and things of the sort was torture to me- maybe going days without speaking helps me revert to the uninhibited mindset i had as a youth, idk.
I would recommend movies like cast away, AI, and the beach, viewed through glassy eyes of course, to initiate the type of thinking that becomes apparent in this kind of neurological deprivation.
