For all those who thought hallucinogenic drugs took off in the 1960s, think again: scientists believe they have found evidence of magic mushroom use 6,000 years ago.
Cave murals found in Spain appear to depict them in religious rituals - which would be the oldest evidence of their use in Europe.
The Selva Pascuala cave mural near the town of Villar del Humo has a bull in the centre, but researchers from America and Mexico are focussing on a row of 13 small mushroom-like objects.

Brian Akers at Pasco-Hernando Community College in Florida, and Gaston Guzman at the Ecological Institute of Xalapa in Mexico say they believe the objects are Psilocybe hispanica, a local funghi with hallucinogenic properties.
The mushroom has a bell-shaped cap with a dome and lacks a ring around the stalk, just like the objects in the 6,000 year-old mural, they say.

It also has stalks which vary from straight to sinuous - the same as those drawn thousands of years ago, they add in the latest issue of New Scientist.
But, even though it is several millennia old, it is not thought to be the oldest painting showing hallucinogenic mushrooms.

A mural in Algeria that may show Psilocybe mairei is 7,000 to 9,000 years old, according to NewScientist.com.

They grow all over here. If you know where to look and what you're looking for. Alternately there's many sellers on the lower mainland and the island that will sell complete kits so you can grow your own.

Now, what am I gonna do with all this new cold room space? hmm.gif

rofl.gif hi5.gif Makes sense though, thousand of years ago people knew way more about plants and their uses than we do now.

It's a damned shame, but a lot of knowledge is in the shrooms themselves stoned.gif

These babies grow here:

Psilocybe semilanceata, commonly known as the liberty cap, is a psychedelic (or "magic") mushroom that contains the psychoactive compounds psilocybin and baeocystin. Of the world's psychoactive mushrooms, it is the most common in nature, and one of the most potent.


I don't know of anybody growing them as they grow in an abundance in the countryside...and there's very little that doesn't count as countryside over here chuckle.gif:redneck:beerbong.gif

A friend once told me: " You know Rog', there is no doubt that Mushrooms were brought here and planted by Aliens, to help enhance mankinds spiritual development."

He was the first person i ever met, who had a copy of the Urania Book.

He was also the first person i ever met, who shot up his Marijuana plants with Vitamin B1 using
a Hypodermic needle.

Come to think of him again,,,,
He was the first person i ever watched lose his damned mind.

He walked out of the house one morning, with all his possessions in his arms
set those on the front lawn

retrieved from the garage a gas can ,,,

poured the gas on his stuff

stood back a few feet and flicked a match on it.

His shït went POOF!!!

He sat down on the Lawn in front of the fire and began to mumble some kinda chant like shït.

heh heh

A woman in the house called the fire dept.

and ran out to try and pull him back inside

he would pull his arms away from her and remain seated and chanting.

I had just pulled up out front as he walked out with his goods and watched the whole event with great mirth.

When the Sirens got about two blocks away, i slipped my 1963 Rambler Classic into drive,,

and,,,,, LAUGHING LIKE A LOON AT THE MOON,,, slowly drove away from the scene
of the Laundry cook-out.

Later, i heard he had the paranoia schizoids, after a night of drinking and Cocaine,,,

pulled out all his Shroom friends, and canabalisticly ate the little bastards each and every one.

I guess he thought they were Oysters.

When the Silly-sibes kicked in,,, he thought he should burn all that he used to be,,,
and begin to advance to the higher self,,,
without the benefit of even his old cloths.

The poor demented shït
But then again,,,,
he always was into Rituals,,, even said prayers over his car before a road trip.

Oh yeah, his car broke down anyway, prayer just never took hold i guess.

Afterward,,, he moved off down to Texas.

Course, not a wise move,,
seems the red-neck cops were not so pliant to his ritualistic antics,,, anfd he got arrested and jailed,,,, until they could place him in the State Asylum.

Maybe he perfected a way to grow his Shroom friends in the Asylum somehow.

EEEek,, who knows,, Oyi Vey!

For free, everywhere.

(Just like ganja.)

Strong medicin, lets you tune in to the real news :)
To be handled with respect.
Which is why every man picks his own, nose down
into the turf, haha.

But yeah, to each his own.

I didn't know it, but I needed to meet the wise little
mushrooms...needed it badly...and so, they found me.
A couple of hundred so called "trips" followed.
(At the time, I prefered to call them lessons or
Meetings with the Powers hehhehhehheh - oh, the drama!)
Eternally grateful, I am.
A very dynamic period of my life.

As of now, I haven't felt the need for them in what, some 15 years.


It was never in the drugs,
it was always in your head doobie.gif

Mushrooms can be quite enlightening, the local variety are known worldwide for their potency.
I would however recommend the individual taking them is pretty mentally stable. Sounds like your friend had a few issues other than mushrooms Rog.37.gif

A few Issues you say?rofl.gif

From the Movie or Book 'BARFLY" by Bukowski

" Some people have never gone crazy, i pity them,,,
what boring lives they must live"

I recall eating the little Bastards once,,,

after some time had passed,,,, whereas i had sat very still and quiet,,

one or another or both or all of the people there,,,

looked me in the face,,,
asked a question,,,

i looked everyone there in the face, twice,,, and barbeled a reply of sorts.

Whereas again,,, it, they, them, or all of the above,,, replied:

" WOAH DUDE!!!! That's PROFOUND!!!!

i TURNED BACK TO MYSELF,,, looked me in the eye this time,,
and replied:::::

" Dude, remind me again why we hang out with these people"

Well, i said to myself:::

" Self, why all the Hard Questions man,,, just let it all flow,,,,
all you said was,,, i gotta take a piss,,,, and they,,,them,,,it,,,Et al,,, took it as ,,

Holy Scripture Dude"
and anyway man,,, LOOK, they're already all gone now anyways,,,
and,,, hey,, uh,,,,, can i ask myself a question this time???

I replied::
Sure Self,,, go ahead,, just no hard ones,, ok?

Ah, uh,, ok,,,
um,,,, were we alone,,,, or was there really people here asking a question and you answered
with ,,, you had to piss?

I again looked myself in my eye, and with all pragmatic sternness,,, said:::
'Self,,, remind me again why i hang out with you"

Two and one half hours later,,, being offended,,, i,,, wellllll,,,,
I drove off and left me behind,,,,
and Boy! was i pissed at me,,,

first, because i was so inconsiderate to me as to forget i was there with me, and drive off and leave me,,,
second,,, i was pissed at me,,, because i had just given me a legitimate cause to BITCH me out,,
and also,,, because i now had to turn around and go pick me back up and what a waste of gas that was.

Yes, i believe i do remember eating a Shroom or two,,, ONCE!

heh heh,,, yes JR, i believe it was my LSD trip, that was the most PROFOUND
in the area of the mind that performs the attributed mechanization of self analysis.

Reveal yourself to you.
Man,,,
everything you look at about yourself,,,, you can find a way to critic.

After 14 hours of doing a hard gaze into your own psyche,,, you just about have deminished
all that you were that your,,,,"Id",,, thought was COOL,,, and if you did it right,,,
have reformatted your perceptions and perspectives of yourself to a higher degree
of understanding "YOU" and discard that which you find undesirable of yourself.

Afterward,,, after that LOOOONNNNGGGGG look inside, and after you pull yourself out of your self absorption,,,,
you take a few moments to ponder the New World around you and the people in it.

and again,,, "IF", you did the work right,,,,, you may realize, that all you have been in order to impress others,,,
was in Vain,,,,, for you then have the tools,,, to SEE, that they as well,,, were up to the same thing,,,,,
attempting to impress "YOU",,, by ,,,, "ACTING" cool,,,

Then, in the area i was at the time,,,
after i had pulled the mask off of my own inner actor,,,, to see me in truth,,,
i found i had to reinstall the Mask,,,, on the surface at least,,,
just to be able to get along with their Mask, so i did not piss them off,,, too often.
