The first level of enlightenment is characterized by a euphoric enjoyment of reading and writing literature (especially poetry) or philosophy. This is particularly true of the works of the Beat writers of the 50's. This state is best accompanied by medium low lighting, the music of Charlie Parker or Miles Davis, the poetry of Alan Ginsberg and Gary Snyder, a notebook and pen, and a pack of cigarettes.
The second level of enlightenment is more trippy and psychedelic. The Beatles "Here Comes the Sun" and coloring in a coloring book are the preferred activities for this state. Staring off into space "thinking about stuff." In this state, one may profess to be able to understand the meaning of the songs "Come Together" or "I Am the Walrus." The following examples are representative of the second level of enlightenment.
Friend 2: I'm pretty baked, in the sense that I feel like
the fried potato wedges under the warming
lamp at the deli in the grocery store.
2. Text from hot female friend: Just how enlightened are you?
Enlightened reply: If you were here right now, you'd
probably want to hug me, because it would seem like
I was about to turn into a cartoon animal.
