The reference to ecstasy as a ‘holy sacrament’ reinforces the view that the rave experience is a ritual process wherein MDMA use is appropriate only in the ritual or the sacred space
“It’s suggested that exposure to a psychoactive substance (rave technology) at a rave can produce neural tuning such that a similar state can later be reached naturally while in a rave environment ...”
“As a movement, it enacted a desire to be autonomous, with a belief in tolerance and experimental living, all built around the latent energy of electronic music. As a music-based culture, it embraced self-practice, invention and unbridled creativity, arguably leading to the densest period in history for the diversification of music.”
"Sometimes it's simply about the medium or the transference, and less about the chemical compound — our ability to receive motivations from a fourth plane of vibrations may be the truest social construct or network we've ever experienced...
Person A to Person B transference is on a cellular level. Our ability to interpret techno (or techno technologies like MDMA, LSD and Ketamine) allow for the continuous and ever-present frequency transfer; except this time the transference and pace allow for substantial terraform shifts in perspective, acceptance and rationalization.
Can you simply inherit a personality wavelength as opposed to a scientific chemical combination of elements?
Rave technology adapts to the end user in ways we were never fully able to comprehend since typical transfers are subjective and unique in nature. Chemistry, ambiance and tone facilitate rave."

Timbre-saturated, repetitive but tilted always toward the next now, techno is
an immediacy machine, stretching time into a continuous present—which is
where the drug-technology interface comes into play. Not just because techno
works well with substances like MDMA, marijuana, LSD, speed, etc., all of
which amplify the sensory intensity of the present moment, but because the
music itself drugs the listener, looping consciousness then derailing it,
stranding it in a nowhere/nowhen, where there is only sensation, ‘where now
