Great old psychoactive-related literature in the public domain

Another excellent topic by entropymancer: Thanks to the work of Google (on books.google.com) and Microsoft (who provides the resources for many of the books scanned at archive.org/details/texts) there are some great old references available for free reading and download.

„Geometric visual hallucinations, Euclidean symmetry and the functional architecture of striate cortex“

http://www.math.utah.edu...f/publications/01-1.pdf

A study about why we see what we see when one uses psycedelics. Pretty hard to understand for me. I guess one needs serious math knowledge.

Cosmic Consciousness by Richard M Bucke.

"The medical doctor, Richard M. Bucke, wrote this book in the year 1900. It has circulated among a small group of mystics and religious seekers ever since. In brief, Dr. Bucke proposes that all the religious leaders of all religions throughout all history began their missions with a common subjective experience that he calls 'Cosmic Consciousness.' He uses ancient texts by these religious leaders to clarify his position, and this occupies most of his book. Many readers say this is a brilliant book. Alan Watts, for example, was an advocate of this book. Dr. Bucke also believes many poets were blessed with this same Cosmic Consciousness, including Walt Whitman, who was a personal friend of Dr. Bucke."

Great read. Found a hard-copy for a buck in a local spirit shop/bookstore. Quite a gem, can't believe how I stumbled across it. No mention of the psychedelic experience but still a good perspective and great resource.

Here's a link to the work of an author i really enjoyed, his work reminds a lot of Carlos Castaneda.

Don Miguel Ruiz is a Mexican author who claims to get his teachings out of ancient Toltec texts, the lessons might seem obvious to most people, but if we'd really practice them our world would become so much brighter.

It's really a guide to happiness

Some examples:

-Be Impeccable With Your Word.
-Don't Take Anything Personally.
-Don't Make Assumptions.
-Always Do Your Best.

The DMT Diaries: From Materialism to Modern Mysticism

This new book explores a number of concepts which chapters ranging on models of the universe to a chapter on Bill Hicks (odd, but funny), a chapter on McKenna, another on Strassman and Rogan, one on 5-MeO, and some others. A lot of the "classic" DMT literature is quoted quite regularly so many well-read members may be familiar with what the author is presenting, but he does so in a reasonable fashion, weaving his coherent narrative. While I may not agree with everything in the book, I think it's worth the read.

Atum appears on the smell of his censing, the Sunshine- god has risen in the sky, the Mansion of the pyramidion is in joy and all its inmates are assembled, a voice calls out within the shrine, shouting reverberates around the Netherworld." - Egyptian Book of the Dead

The Revitalization of Yaje Shamanism among the Siona: Strategies of Survival in Historical Context--Esther Langdon

Quote:
After almost a complete extinction of Siona shamans and their rituals in the second half of the 20th century, yaje performances have reemerged in recent decades among this Western Tukanoan group of Colombia’s northwest Amazon Basin. The revitalization of yaje rituals among the Siona is part of a larger process throughout Latin America in which shamanism has come to be associated with ecological preservation, traditional medicine, ethnic identity, and community well-being (Conklin 2002; Ulloa 2005). In the lowland region of Putumayo State in Colombia, shamanic yaje rituals play a central role in the complex field of negotiations between indigenous communities, the state, nongovernmental organizations, extractive industries, and the diverse armed groups (paramilitaries, drug traffickers, military, and guerrillas)(Carrizosa 2015). In addition, Siona taitas, the current designation for low-land ayahuasca shamans, currently receive important recognition for their participation in contemporary shamanic networks in the Colombian high-lands as well as in several countries in the Americas and Europe (Caicedo Fernandez 2013).

This article outlines three historical periods of yaje use among the Siona: (1) the colonial period in which the shamanic role transformed into that of the powerful cacique curaca despite repression; (2) the first half of the 20thcentury that resulted in near extermination of shamans and yaje rituals; and (3) the revitalization of shamanism and reincorporation of the shaman and yaje rituals into the political process. It examines the factors that have contributed to the current revitalization, arguing that, unlike vegetalismo in Peru(Gow 1994) or the folk healing (curanderismo) system in Colombian popular culture (Taussig 1980), current Siona yaje shamanism has deep roots in their autochthonous practices and strategies to resist colonial control, although contemporary practices also reflect the discourse, aesthetics, expectations,and demands of the larger society that have arisen in the last 30 years

Abstract
The basic message in the book, ”Inner paths to outer space: Journeys to Alien Worlds through
Psychedelics and Other Spiritual Technics”, written by Rick Strassman et al, is that psychedelics
might make possible instantaneous remote communications with distant parts of the Universe. The
objection would be that light velocity sets stringent limits on classical communications. In TGD
framework this argument does not apply. In this article a model for remote mental interactions
is constructed using basic notions of TGD inspired quantum biology such as magnetic body, dark
photons and Zero Energy Ontology.
Further, both psychedelics and DNA contain aromatic rings. Each base-pair would contain
1+2+1+1=5 (two rings from sugars) aromatic rings and longer DNA sequences would define larger
conscious entities. Of course, all proteins contain these aromatic rings possibly integrating by flux
tube connections to larger conscious entities. In this picture it would not be surprising of the basic
information molecules would also involve aromatic rings.


Why Information Molecules Containing Aromatic Rings Should Be so

Hope I am not double posting this one. If so, please excuse me. I figured this was an interesting one and worth sharing.
