>One day, I was in Westminster in London—this was after we had introduced the character—and I was sitting in a sandwich bar. All of a sudden, up the stairs came John Constantine. He was wearing the trenchcoat, a short cut—he looked—no, he didn't even look exactly like Sting. He looked exactly like John Constantine. He looked at me, stared me straight in the eyes, smiled, nodded almost conspiratorially, and then just walked off around the corner to the other part of the snack bar. I sat there and thought, should I go around that corner and see if he is really there, or should I just eat my sandwich and leave? I opted for the latter; I thought it was the safest. I'm not making any claims to anything. I'm just saying that it happened. Strange little story.
What did he mean by this?

    John is meant to look like any generic square looking blonde guy and his style changes almost every issue (even the ones Alan wrote)
    This is saying i met Clark Kent because i saw a buff white guy with glasses

      >His second meeting with his creation was illustrated in 2001's Snakes and Ladders: "Years later, in another place, he steps out of the dark and speaks to me. He whispers: "I'll tell you the ultimate secret of magic. Any c**t could do it.""
      >Writers who had their run on the Hellblazer series have also admitted meeting the character in real life. Original Hellblazer writer Jamie Delano also claims to have encountered Constantine, during his run on the character, outside the British Museum. Peter Milligan saw Constantine at a party around 2009 and rushed after him, only to find he'd disappeared. Brian Azzarello once saw him in a Chicago bar but avoided him, saying that "the thing about John is, the last thing you'd want to be is his friend."

        Either that or knowing Moore, they created an egregore, luckily this one seems to not have required any sacrifices to manifest into our world like Spongebob did.

          If we're entertaining the idea, this makes the most sense. Put that much energy into a thoughtform and have people across the world believe in it and love it, something might pop up, especially with the nature of the characters and stories. And Moore's involvement makes it make more sense.

          I'm a bit lost on the SpongeBob thing though, the frick?

      Doesn't help that he's been on drugs since his teens. Druggies are of course famous for their reliable eye witness testimonies.

        Alan Moore is a manchild and this whole story is bullshit but I hope you understand that recreational drugs can be extremely beneficial to your intelligence and clarity of existence, even if going on 60 acid trips per year like Moore might be going overboard

          Sure, if you don't start when you're 15 and your brain is still developing, like Moore did.

            Your brain is always developing. Your brain literally never stops developing, until you die. I wouldn’t have tripped at 15 but it’s not like puberty is a real thing that could be fricked up by acid.

            Have you ever gotten high? I know that if you’re sober, you’ve probably developed a grudge towards seedy crackheads who are always like “you need to do it bro you need to do it bro”, but I’m not kidding, getting high on a substance for the first time is like flipping a switch. It will completely reframe your understanding of reality and provide you with a strong sense of existential peace, but it’s so intense and bizarre to experience that it can be scary, so I would only recommend it if you think it’s worth the challenge.

              Never gotten high but I can admit I have dealt with people like that so I probably am biased. I'm sure that getting high is an intense experience and can probably make you consider things you never did before, but I wouldn't say it makes you smarter or more creative in and of itself. It might help people who normally don't engage in the creative process that much unlock ideas they otherwise wouldn't have or help with writers block but really any form of sufficiently intense inspiration can do that. Then again I'm no expert so I could easily be wrong.

                Getting high on even a safe psychedelic like THC isn’t like taking a normal dose of an anticonvulsant where your body and brain just kinda feel like they popped a mint, it’s like shoving your head up reality’s butthole. Imagine how it would feel to be Doctor Manhattan, or ???% Mob from Mob Psycho, or Opal Koboi in book 8 where she shoves herself into a tube full of nuclear radiation and turns herself into a god while escaping prison. That’s the closest thing you’ll get to knowing what being high is like if you haven’t. People don’t think you could possibly get something so enlightening from a store shelf and you probably have friends who have gotten high and don’t seem to be that stirred by it outwardly, but find the right thing in the right dose (start small) and you’ll get blasted.

                NTA, but a few years ago I got back into writing after not having done it for a long time. Sat down and wrote a few hundred words for a short story idea I had. It legit felt like way back when I first got into weed. Not exactly the same obviously, but the act of writing genuinely made me feel high. Then again, I also accidentally meditated at a party of all places and felt like third fricking eye opened, so maybe I'm just weird.

              Frick knows where I read it, but I remember reading a study where people were given ecstasy in a controlled environment to see if it could help people with trauma or some shit. One of the guys who signed up for it was a hardcore white supremacist and after one hit of ecstasy he just went
              >what the frick am I doing with my life, hating people I don’t even know is so fricking dumb
              and abandoned all his prejudices and swore off politics. Wonder how long before they start adding it to the water.

                I once ate a weed and had a total anxiety attack when I stopped being in control of myself or my immediate surroundings. Similar thing happened when I ate a smaller dose. No thanks.

              I got high and it was an awful experience, I felt unable to be responsible or live up to my duties and I started getting paranoid about what would happen if I missed work or my parents got injured/died while I was in this state. The loss of control and ability was just too much for me.

        I doubt Moore goes further than some weakass shrooms, most of his stories are bullshit. You know even Rob Liefeld can see that so what's everyone else's excuse?
