Anyhow so his thing is like, mushroom trips break down the ego and through mushroom tripping and orgies society was more equal and women were shamans and decision makers and everyone got along and made telepathic decisions about what the group should do, which is why he thinks we need everyone to trip on mushrooms or smoke raw DMT and communicate with entities I guess. Through psychedelics we are learning that God is not an idea, God is a lost continent in the human mind.

And once you realize that Terence can't even provide interesting accounts of drug trips, you start to think very hard about your life and why you're 200 pages deep in hell. This divide, which McKenna also represents as being entirely black and white, is yet more baseless idealism, and a clear example of the "noble savage" trope. As an odyssey of mind, body and spirit, Food of the Gods is one of the most fascinating and suprising histories of consciousness ever written And as a daring work of scholarship and exploration, it offers an inspiring vision for individual fulfilment and a humane basis for our interaction which each other and with the natural world. If you’re a fan of Robbins’ fanciful writing style, you might enjoy Food of the Gods, as I admit I did. I started reading to become more familiar with drug culture and history and potential good uses of psychedelics.

The only religions that are more than the traditionally sanctioned moral codes are trance, dance ecstasy, and intoxication by hallucinogens. And now take ten thousand or even more years in which apes and human ancestors consume certain mushrooms, herbs, fruits, weed, etc. I am not saying that I think everything the author says is right; all I am saying is that even if some of it is correct, it might be something worth considering. In Food of the Gods, McKenna takes a historical look at the relationship between plants and human beings. Tuttavia, l'intento di McKenna non è unicamente il voler descrivere questa decadenza nella storia umana, ma riproporre quell' originario modello di civiltà perduta come Eden da riconquistare, attraverso l'utilizzo di allucinogeni, ed in particolare DMT e Psylocibe cubensis, in grado di far compiere a chi l'assume viaggi ultradimensionali, di garantire una conoscenza spropositata di ciò che siamo, del nostro mondo e del mondo Altro.

My contention is that mutation-causing, psychoactive chemical compounds in the early human diet directly influenced the rapid reorganization of the brain’s information-processing capacities.Early hominids were known to have used magic mushrooms, and given that they are grown on cattle droppings, it makes sense that there would be some co-evolution beginning around the time cattle were domesticated. A daring work of scholarship and exploration, it offers an inspiring vision for individual fulfilment and a humane basis for our interaction with each other and the natural world. If every alcoholic were a pothead, if every crack user were a pothead, if every smoker smoked only cannabis, the social consequences of the “drug problem” would be transformed.

Ibogaine, the indole hallucinogen responsible for the pharmacological activity of the Bwiti plant, is widely recognized both as a factor holding married couples together in the face of Fang institutions like easy divorce and as an aphrodisiac. The texts seem to imply that the juice was purified by being poured through a woolen filter and then in some cases was mixed with milk. What we see, how we interpret what we see, and then how we present what we see, are three different things (and tricky, if not impossible, to tease apart the three). An eloquent proposal for recovering something vital-a sense of the sacred, the transcendent, the Absolute-before it's too late. Qui compare una carrellata spropositata di stereotipi sulle sostanze stesse, sulla cultura patriarcale, e sul cristianesimo: insopportabile.The World Tree or Axis Mundi is a common motif in mythological sequences, from Norse tales of Odin, to the awakening of the Buddha at the foot of the Bodhi tree, to the crucifixion of Christ which takes him down into hell and then up into heaven, spanning a vertical spectrum of consciousness - all use a similar metaphor to describe dramatic transformations and a vertical wooden presence, but framed in different ways according to the culture. I would also query the pre-history that he talks about, as being a rough sketch of something much more complex and varied.

In many cases, alcohol literally was slavery as the triangular trade of slaves, sugar, and rum and other practices of European civilization spread over the earth, subjugating other cultures. The ideas contained in his book reflect on every aspect of who we beleive ourselves to be as a species in every aspect of humanity.

I encourage everyone to read him, I think his voice is necessary in a world where addictions run rampant and our understanding of ourselves has hit a trough where value is measured by productivity and consumerism.
