Entheogenic Review

I came upon a child of God ... I asked him where are you going? And this he told me: I don't know who I am ... life is for learning. We are stardust, We are golden, And we've got to get ourselves back to the garden. ~ Woodstock in lyrical ellipsis ~ Joni Mitchell

REALLY GOOD STUFF. PLANTAE: The Ethnobotany Tables. Much later version drawn up to convert all findings to symbols I developed my evolutionary tree over the winter of 1987/8. There were also some tables then produced the winter before pretty much in their infancy. These were at first produced on 8.5×11 sheets, but to compress more data on a sheet I converted to 11×14 sheets of paper.

The printer was one of the wide printers (“antique” we now call them) that used daisy wheels. For those of you who have been in the PC world for a very long time, this printer worked off my Sanyo MBC550, 4kb hard drive, with two 5 1/4″ floppie readers DSSD/DSDD (I paid a lot for the second reader), a CPM/SYS installed, an exceptionally small DOS, with SBasic as the programming language. I spent the next 2 years adding columns (ethnobotanical uses) and rows (genera) to these tables. The point of doing this was to determine if there was a relationship between taxonomy, chemistry and ethnobotany. Methodology The table production is the first nine steps. PLANTAE: The Evolution of Plant Chemicals. My decision to put a lot of my textbook on the web will probably please some past students and people to no end, including who wanted to attended my class but couldn’t for whatever reason.

For those familiar with my course and its book, the plans are to include my tables as well, along with some new analyses. This data is in such a form that some parts of it work very well on shapefiles on the ArcView and ArcGIS. This particular piece of my technology I am trying to make more universally applicable, enabling a map of the plant kingdom to be included in with any GIS work no matter what the coordinate system is. Accomplishing that however looks to be a couple or few years away. So, for those unfamiliar with my course, I have to ask the most important question first, to hopefully demonstrate the value of this work . . . “what are the uses of this book?” There are still a number of copies of my very old textbooks out there circulating. Like this: Like Loading... Planta Medica. PLANTAE MEDICA was the title for the book I wrote to teach my course on the Evolution of Natural Products.

This book was written for classes that began in 1989 and that I continued to teach until 1993. During this time I upgraded the book, improved upon my phytochemical evolution charts, and added some figures and tables as a result of my tabulation of the ethnopharmacology and ethnobotany data, the uses of 10,000+ plants drawn from the ethnobotany and ethnopharmacology dictionaries. This main attraction for my course was a handout and later a purchasable item I developed due to my work in the labs–a chart I began to produce in the winter of 1987/8, the first 6 months of my research on the evolution and change of the Magnoliidae, Dilleniidae and Rosidae in relation to their benzylisoquinoline alkaloids (BIQs), lignans, and coumarins. This work was then extended to include the remaining dicot subclasses, and a year later all other plant Classes. The History of This Research. Sacred Weeds. Sacred Weeds was a four part television series of 50 minute documentaries investigating the cultural impact of psychoactive plants on a broad array of early civilizations.

The series was filmed at Hammerwood Park by the producer, Sarah Marris, and her production company TVF. The Reader in European Pre-History at the University of Oxford, Dr Andrew Sherratt, was the series host. Prior to his resignation from the University of Oxford, Sherratt was appointed Professor of Archaeology. Each episode began and ended with Sherratt inscribing his diary with his reflections on the series' scientific and cultural investigations. In each episode the series investigated one psychoactive plant and its cultural significance. After the four episodes, Sherratt assigned considerably more significance to the psychoactive properties of plants in ancient civilization and the prehistoric period than expert knowledge hitherto.

These materials have found therapeutic value in psychotherapy and also as research tools for the exploration of the neurotransmitter structure of the human brain.

All Plants and Major Chemical Transformations. The Chemical Evolution Begins Recall the previous pie chart for major ethnobotanic chemical classes for All Plants. The following is a demonstration of how these major chemicals are distributed across the very large taxonomic grouping of plants. Chemically speaking, the simplest of plants are non-toxic, and their major uses are related to foodways.

With the development of vessels in plants we see some chemical differentiation also occurring, enabling some taxa groups to provide medicinal values. It is important to note however that the numbers of species at this level is exceptionally low. When we move up the larger groupings [Ginkgo, Ephedra, etc.], we find very distinct chemical synthesis pathways now well-developed. Pinopsida is well separated from the other three gymnosperms just mentioned. All lignose groups demonstrate the ability of plants to synthesize the polymer lignin for survival purposes. The seed oil concept has just begin to evolve in the naked seeds of Pinidae.

The Astral Shaman Through my interest and passion for shamanism, the celestial language of astrology visited me, like magi from a distant, exotic desertscape. In 2004, I began an almost obsessive relationship with the Mayan culture, their mysterious 2012 end date, and their sacred 260-day count, called the Tzolkin. Simultaneously, I exposed myself to the world of Amazonian shamanism through Jeremy Nearby's groundbreaking book The Cosmic Serpent, which linked the serpentine visions of shamans and their indigenous cosmologies with the structures of DNA. As the languages of astrology and shamanism penetrated every aspect of my being, I learned that in most cultures, there had never been a separation between shaman and stargazer.

As the cultural mythmaker, the shaman would indeed need to maintain communication with the meaning of the cycles of the stars, in addition to his or her transmissions with astral beings and the ancestral realm. Journey into the Past Reach Out and Touch Someone. Psychonaut. Consciousness Cafe. Portugal Drug Policy: Decriminalization Works. The Experience of Foreign Countries and Drug Legalization. Chapter Three: The Experience of Foreign Countries and Drug Legalization Discussion I. Their Argument Proponents of legalization suggest that the experiences of countries such as Great Britain, the Netherlands, and Switzerland prove the efficacy of legalizing or decriminalizing various types of illegal drugs such as cocaine, heroin, and marijuana.

They maintain that because such drugs are legal, these countries have fewer addicts and less drug-related crime. II. Our Argument The statements of the legalizers here are empirically untrue. A. With the report of a government commission known as the Brain Committee of 1964, England instituted a policy whereby doctors could prescribe heroin so long as they followed certain treatment criteria.47 Previously in England, doctors could prescribe heroin much like any other opiate (such as morphine). As of 1983, however, England began to phase out these programs of clinically supplied heroin in favor of methadone treatment.49 Why?

The lab books contain detailed experience reports about a wide variety of psychoactive substances as well as notes on chemical processes, formulas, sketches, and hand-drawn graphs. The Shulgins' trusted assistants, gregM and Tania, took on the labor-intensive process of redacting the names of individuals whose privacy should be protected. The scanning was facilitated by and performed by gregM and Raj Kumar.

1,3,7-trimethylxanthine (sometimes used as a pesticide to kill frogs) also happens to be one of the world’s most popular drugs. Users find that it improves attention and concentration, and slightly decreases their heart rate at low doses. It is habit forming however and has been known to cause agitation, anxiety, insomnia, disorientation, nausea, delirium, hallucinations and tinnitus.

Some people report involuntary tremors or even convulsions. Overdoses can cause seizures, respiratory failure and cardiopulmonary arrest. Withdrawal from regular use can cause symptoms including headache, nausea, nervousness, reduced alertness and depression. The metabolic half-life of the drug is usually somewhere between three and seven hours so a typical user will take somewhere between fifteen and thirty-five hours to process 95% of their initial dose.
