Religion and art once served to shield the eyes from the Eternal Mystery the dazzling glare coming from the black abyss of BeingI stumbled upon Stanis aw Ignacy Witkiewicz s Narcotics at the beginning of this year while researching the psychedelic alkaloid mescaline as well as reading about experiences that people have had using the substance I m a massive fan of Aldous Huxley s The Doors of Perception so after taking a bit of a dive through Wikipedia articles surrounding both it and the aforementioned compound 345 trimethoxyphenethylamine I came across this line under the topic of Notable users Stanis aw Ignacy Witkiewicz Polish writer artist and philosopher experimented with mescaline and described his experience in a 1932 book Nikotyna Alkohol Kokaina Peyotl Morfina Eter Luckily upon further exploration I found that there was a brand new complete english translation of Narcotics on the horizon Needless to say I was thrilled And so here I am now several months later reviewing this magnificent collection of essays and published by Twisted Spoon PressThe initial chapter on nicotine deals with effects of widespread narcotic intoxication on society as a whole and it s prevalence in the history of mankind If you wanted to be utterly convinced never to use nicotine and I mean never all you would have to do is read this essay from start to finish The picture that Witkiewicz paints although in this case he is using words instead of colours a pen instead of a paintbrush is an ugly and wretched one but it feels disturbingly accurate His use of language is of a character that is distinctly his own it manages to feel distant and personal at the same time but not in a bad way I consider literature to be very closely related to other forms of artistry for example painting and musical composition the sentences too have to be composed and the mental images that one intends to show the reader have to be painted Reading Witkacy as he is commonly referred to is in this sense at times similar to experiencing a great work of visual art or listening to a particularly enticing piece of musicHere is a uote from the beginning of the rather philosophical first chapter that I found to be uite intriguing and of which I think further reflections ought to be had So I have called the aforementioned insatiability a metaphysical feeling as it is rooted in the opposition between every individual s infinite wholeness of Existence and the delimitations imposed by Time and Space The insatiability that Witkacy so often speaks of is as I understand it an underlying or as he would say metaphysical voracity for existence being As will be made clear by a uote included at the bottom of this review he believes that we cannot fully satiate this craving for life grounded in the fact that our individual consciousness is limited by nature s constraints on us and that all we can really do is temporarily satisfy it for example by work or creative outlet If this is not possible then his view is that narcotics are the only other thing able to make existence bearable the only alternative means for us to extinguish our insatiability for the metaphysicalIn the chapter that s concerned with peyote he describes one of the trips he had which lasted for an immense amount of time reported with several timestamps letting us know when he was faced with certain visions and mentions of everything from the warping of physical space to cross sections of reptilian machines This essay is undoubtedly going to be the highlight of Narcotics for many readers and through it I found myself drawn deeper into the world of Witkacy s hallucinatory experiences Interestingly enough peyote is really the only drug that the author seems to speak somewhat fondly of almost approving of it Don t smoke don t drink don t take cocaine try some peyote if you must take something When you first encounter this book you sort of expect him to adamantly endorse at least a few of these intoxicants but the opposite is true It is a cautionary and nuanced survey of some of the most commonly used and a few not so common substances in societyThis edition is structured as follows a preface followed by six essays on a variety of drugs the first four of which are authored by Witkacy concluding with two shorter ones penned by acuaintances of his Bohdan Filipowski and Stefan Glass after which there are two appendices where he discusses among other issues cleanliness and physical hygiene in general topics that Witkacy firmly held to be of significant importance and that he thought needed to be thoroughly examined He writes I believe that home cleanliness and over public cleanliness are an extension of personal cleanliness If we start in our own backyard the rest of our environment will all gradually become clean in time because a hygienic person simply refuses to be surrounded by dirt Beyond this section there is an excerpt from his fictional work Farewell to Autumn in which multiple characters take numerous doses of cocaine whereupon the effects of said drug are illustrated in vivid detail These final pages were actually some of the most enjoyable ones in the entirety of Narcotics for me personally Another wonderful aspect of this new edition of the book that deserves to be mentioned is that it contains 34 full colour reproductions of Witkacy s various portraits They complement the rest of this work uite nicely because most of them were created while under the influence of narcotics as well as being a great showcase of one of the author s many other creative talentsImmersing myself in this book has made me want to read of Witkacy s writings principally regarding the rest of his philosophy specifically his concept of Pure Form and his ontology I guess all I can do for now is hope that somebody will translate of his theoretical body of work into english Although I think that the next thing of his that I m likely to pick up is his novel Insatiability since it predates another one of my favourite books Brave New World by a couple of years and they supposedly share some common themesEven though there are many thoughts and sections from this book that I could highlight and discuss further I ll simply end this review with a series of uotations that I consider to be especially greatTo justify my own existence to myself Is this not the root of all creativity p 14 PrefaceNo matter how far back we go in the history of humankind we invariably find some sort of narcotic haze Evidently a clear consciousness cannot cope with itself in the metaphysical monstrosity of Existence and the mind has always needed something to muddle its faculties p 19 NicotineMan has a certain insatiability for existence itself a primordial insatiability tied to the inescapable fact of selfhood which I call metaphysical Unless it is stamped out sated through grand emotions work creativity power and so on it can only be smothered by narcotics p 20 NicotineDespite the blather of the intuitionists and anti intellectuals of those who misunderstand their own words or use them to conceal the poverty of their thoughts one of the greatest and most beautiful things is the human mind p 35 NicotineThe twilight of the era of duplicitous democratic pseudo liberties is in sight The concept of democracy was the final mask concealing values long in decay p 45 AlcoholEveryday existence comes in shades of gray like the ambiance of an office waiting room or a train station but at least there you re waiting for something and that makes all the difference p 63 CocaineI would call peyote a metaphysical narcotic It gives a sense of the strangeness of Being seldom experienced in everyday life alone in the mountains late at night at times of great intellectual exhaustion sometimes at the sight of something very beautiful or when listening to music for this is not just a normal metaphysical artistic sensation from directly apprehending the Pure Form of a work of art This is a different case it is not terror at the strangeness of Being but a mild justification of its metaphysical necessity p 71 Peyote Evil has disappeared got lost somewhere or absconded to another plane of existence got sucked up toppled to the very bottom of Ahriman s abyss totally and absolutely deflated taken flight blown away and until it is utterly and completely gone so that not the tinies atom of this cursed principle remains in the blessed sphere you now call your own p 99 MorphineI saw the surrounding wheat the hill the sun but it was not I who saw them My ego had vanished leaving pure consciousness Soon thereafter I created a rather logically coherent pantheistic system where I placed supraindividual consciousness of being above the individual ego p 108 EtherHe felt the absolute impermeability of his two selves in a mysterious world whose terror and strangeness we strive to conceal from ourselves through other people a transparent network of false concepts that never get to the essence of things and a mountain of social obligation Yes only society is real so thought this asocial creature par excellence And who cares Who cares when I exist and I have to endure this miserable scrap of time as dictated by the whole mess of structures in me and outside of me A pure self is just a mathematical coordinate practically nil I might as well not exist at all Nothingness yawned a chill void greater than the expanse of starless space And even if space didn t exist Nothing a mathematical coordinate p 145 From Farewell to Autumn
