Substance Analysis Kits – Find out whats in any plant or drug!

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/substance-analysis-kits-down-with-adulterants

Paranoid about what substance are really on blotter? Or just itching to explore the biochemical treasures hiding within your local plants?

This non-profit harm reduction project from TLConscious is one of its kind and employs an easy to do TLC method for identifying chemicals that goes far beyond a simple test to see if your LSD is truly LSD (but it can do that to).  Its made by those with extensive experience in both the psychedelic and harm reduction community. Even the DMT-Nexus has publicly given the project its full support.

With the plethora of new and old psychoactive chemicals surging out into the cultural ocean, and the urgent need to identify more local DMT and psychoactive containing plant medicines, this project would be a huge step in furthering not only our harm reduction efforts, but our exploratory interests as well. These plants and compounds have an immense  power for unlocking humanities potential, along with deep therapeutic uses.… Read the rest

UK Attempts to Filter ‘Esoteric Content’ From The Internet

aemethdWell this is pretty scary… especially since “esoteric” is so ambiguous that it could include virtually anything (besides of course those incredibly enlightening mainstream websites! )

Can you imagine a world where access to spiritual information was blocked by the government? What if you stopped by an internet cafe, only to find your favorite website was banned by a public web filter, or your friend’s natural health website was blocked because it mentioned ‘spiritual healing’ techniques? A disturbing movement to censor perfectly legal spiritual information is growing (right now in the UK, but other countries are poised to jump on the bandwagon), and will continue unchecked unless people become aware of the problem and protest it. Find out more about the UK filter, and how it will affect you, below.

PLEASE: sign this petition and spread it around. Whether or not you live in the UK is irrelevant. This is an international issue that would have huge implications.… Read the rest

Pyramid Found in the Middle of the Atlantic?

Hail, Atlantis!

Legends of an advanced prehistoric civilization know as Atlantis have been around since the beginning of history, but previously those who searched for it were divided whether or not it was located near the Azores, South America or elsewhere. From as far back as Plato it was suggested the original builders of the pyramids lived west of Gibraltar, but findings of Machu Picchu, and other curiosities in the Mediterranean, led people to believe it was on the other side of the Atlantic.

According to Diocleciano Silva, the newly discovered Pyramid is sixty meters tall with a base of approximately 8,000 square meters. It is around forty meters below water and aligned with the four cardinal compass directions, similar to the Great Pyramid of Giza.

Imagine Cloning John Lennon, I Wonder If You Can

rocking-toothThe dentist who purchased John Lennon’s rotten molar for $31,000 at a 2011 auction now has plans for the tooth: He’s getting it genetically sequenced in the hopes of cloning the musician, who died in 1980.

Via NBC:

Dr. Michael Zuk has started up a website, JohnLennonDNA.com and put out a press release with all the gory details.

“I am nervous and excited at the possibility that we will be able to fully sequence John Lennon’s DNA, very soon I hope,” Dr. Zuk said in the release. “With researchers working on ways to clone mammoths, the same technology certainly could make human cloning a reality.”

“To potentially say I had a small part in bringing back one of rock’s greatest stars would be mind-blowing,” he added.

Peter Gorman Was Infected With Flesh Eating Bacteria In The Amazon

1002190_10151833672538659_352508625_nPeter Gorman, one of the men largely responsible for bringing awareness of ayahuasca to the western world and the author of the truly remarkable book Ayahuasca In My Blood could use some serious help.

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-peter-gorman-please

Peter is a noted and award-winning journalist and adventurer – also a damn good friend, father, brother, guide and simply all-around one of the good guys, and there ain’t many good guys left.

For nearly 30 years Peter has been working with Ayahuasca, and in Peru in the deep jungle — he is a living legend.

Let’s keep it that way

This recent trip the jungle sunk its teeth in really, seriously deep and Peter picked up three different staph infections – a flesh eating bacteria – that tore into him and threatened to eat his leg away below the knee.

As I write this, his leg has been saved – however, he’s not out of the woods yet.

Visual Diagrams for Administering DMT and Ayahuasca

Screen Shot 2013-08-22 at 8.48.37 AMPerusing the web one night, I stumbled upon these interesting diagrams on the DMT-Nexus. This sort of information can be key to successfully entering the psychedelic state with as coherent and calm a mind as possible. There are solid tips for integration, combinations, efficiency,  and procedural information on things such as brewing, dosages, safety, and so on.

Unfortunately not everyone who would benefit is aware of these things, even if much of it seems like common sense. And there is not many places where it is available all in one package in a format that is easy to digest and share. Having it compiled in such a simple way lends the knowledge to being much more effectively circulated. So have a gander and share these with friends.

Fighting the Blues with Greens?

explain23Natural monoamine oxidase enzyme inhibitors in fruits and vegetables may help explain the improvement in mood associated with switching to a plant-based diet.

This is especially interesting when considering the impact of things such as ayahuasca. Not to mention the evolutionary impact plant MAOI in our ancestral diet have had on our development.
