What happened all those years ago now in regards to changa, is just a matter of history. To me, it's just a fact that there was a kind of revolution started with me and that I made it happen. And you know what, I'm really happy about that. What other people think, good or bad, I actually feel quite divorced from that these days.

For sure, I don't go around ramming it in everyone's face, that I am the inventor of changa or hang a fragile self esteem on a pithy title or label. I'm not that lame Smile And I actually have fairly stoic views on fame and fortune.

I am an innovator, a pioneer and explorer. I would hope that at the end of my life, that inventing changa is one thing in a fairly decent list of things that I have pioneered.

My personal problem with Nen888.
Is the attitude that we somehow should not be propergating dmt , ChangA openly.
Well Wat do you think is going on here?
People are taking all sorts of f#¿¡#t up drugs on mass!
At these events. Foods, festivals and the like.
And I for one can see no better way to educate people en mass.
And I have personalty, wattleva brother,
Have helped and guided littetaly hundreds (conservitivly)
Of people let go of there herendis habitual addictions.
Whether it be, MDNA, coke, crack, meth , or heroin or plane old weed and alcohol!
Andwat do you,? Nen, and outhers think.
That we should stand back and just do nothing.

WATTLEFOREVABRO!

Where is your compassion broke?

By your logic, only two or three people were investigating phalaris in the 90s, which is patently untrue.


Well, we don’t know. I know that Trout said in January 2003, he only knew of 1 or 2 people who had got phalaris to work. Not one, not two, but one or two.


You'll note that I said "investigating phalaris." There is no question that more than two people were investigating phalaris back then. Come on now Rolling eyes

chocobeastie wrote:
The ER article doesn’t talk of any conceptual framework in place, just an experimenter who said, hey, this seems to work!




it is both historically wrong and preposterous to suggest only 2 people or something got Phalaris to work in the 90s..this seems to be an underlying fallacy in many of your arguments, which are based purely on your own exposure to various limited groups of people..
Trout is a very quiet guy..when he says he knows of 2-3 people this means that's who he personally knows! i think you'll find there's more reports than that even in pre Trout ER, but the 90s is not a mass net based reports era..Jim de Korne's Psychedelic Shamanism well and truly established Phalaris, and a Lot of experimentation ensued..it's like you think no one read these things...we can practically statistically assume that reports in ER in the 90s constitute a fraction of actual experimentation..and you essentially acuse the nexian who said they were offered changa or a similar blend in 1994 as a liar? ok, but trying to turn the argument into 'just Nen said this' isn't correct..

you claim, chocobeastie, to have created some kind of 'revolution'..i can only see this as marketing, and slightly different packaging..as the concept of MAOIs plus dmt was well established beforehand..not popularised sure, but known...and tried..and varied on..Gracie and Zarkov were very widely read, within the entheogenic community..what you're not seeing the difference between is promotion and probably naming, vs actual concept behind invention..

you contradict yourself in a few ways, one being that first you say there is some kind of 'old guard' deep state who doesn't agree with you, then you say you've only heard this from me..
in terms of some who disagree with your 'invented' changa, you yourself refer to a particular subset..it's just that i don't believe there's some conspiracy out to get you as you suggest..i don't want to name people here, but you yourself refer to a perceived subset, ask 'them'..a prominent Nimbin hippy elder also comes to mind..who has spoken at EGA. .but like ER reports most people who do things are not here, talking about it on the net..

it doesn't matter to me personally what the origin of particular blend is, it never has, but your claims of owning a conceptual idea do..you ask why did no one else's smoking blend take off and changa did? probably because changa was marketed in 'head shops' and places like boom festival in Europe..
people have been making blends, and smoking harmalas for a while, that's in personal experience..but what makes your changa hype seem troublesome to me is that you seem to almost place a method above the plants involved, and place what i find is a disproportionate amount of emphasis on yourself in this matter...this really needs to be questioned above all else, which a few nexians are doing...but also your constantly shifting the goal posts of what defines changa to suit your 'i am the creator' position is also highly dubious to me..if you need to own the franchise, fine..it just seems to me, even from what others have said in this thread, that it has a life of its own...

so for the last time: caapi (or harmalas) smoked modulates, enhances or extends dmt - is not a concept established in the early 2000s by yourself...this is the main point..and not the exact way or plants used..if there is a central concept to changa that is surely it..and we already see the concept 'smokable ayahusca' in 90s ER..
as for the popularisation and mass selling of things, and probably naming, but I'm not 100% sure there either, i leave that to you chocobeastie..popularisation and invention are different kinds of claims..

it is some of the claims you're making, not that you have a connection to changa, which a few people are taking issue with here..

acacaya, i think you need to think through what you're saying a bit more, before bringing 'compassion' into this...on the environment, compassion there, on that this is a massively read forum, so is hardly denying people access to information, and that disagreeing with someone because you think some things they have said aren't right does not mean not having compassion..

Ok Nen,
so we have established that human beings have been smoking dmt with betacarbolines ,
for atleast 4000 years,if not a hell of a lot longer.!
and we have established that modern man ,so to speak,
or should i say western civilization ,became aware of this atleast by the 50s-60s,or 70s.!
ok right ,do we agree on those two points?
but at what point in history ,and who was it that actually, not only made this point known to the community at large,
but which groups of people or individuals was it that were the most
instrimental at diseminating this idea and experience on a global scale.?
and who put there time and effort into this to such a degree that now we are
actally debating this point so much at this time.

and that said, it does seem like its obviously about time that we sort this matter out.!
ones and for all!

no matter what the the outcome of all this will actually be.

mabe its this ,

Chaga - Mushroom extract 30 ml

Chaga contains many antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, phenols, and enzymes and lends itself perfectly to preparing powerful teas or tinctures. The compounds in chaga have a very high oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) value and high superoxide dismutase (SOD), antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Because of its widely acclaimed health benefits, chaga is currently used in research into the following health issues:
weakened and impaired immune systems
muscle and joint problems
digestive problems
mental and memory disorders

The following properties are attributed to chaga:
antimutagenic
antiviral
anti-malarial
anti-parasitic
anti-bacterial

Chaga is also used more and more in research into cancer treatments
History

Chaga has been used by the Ainu people of Eastern Asia for at least 600 years, but possibly for as long as millenia. Indigenous tribes use it for its antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Since its discovery it has also been used as an adaptogen to help enhance the body’s response to stress, illness and serious disorders.

In ancient texts, chaga is referred to as ‘The king of herbs’, ‘The diamond of the forest’, and ‘The gift of nature’ for its ability to heal and to promote general health, as well as for its unique composition of active compounds.

But at the time, a lot of people were skeptical or “didn’t get it”, so it wasn’t obvious to them at all, and many people were skeptical the ayahuasca would have any effect at all when smoked with the DMT at the same time! Ott was one of those people.


and then:

I would consider it an early prototype of Changa...whoever did this was totally on the right track and obviously had a very lateral mind!


I was present when Mr Ott came to Australia, in fact I was his personal security and my brief was to keep and filter undesirable opportunists away. I was also present when Mr Ott first smoked acacia crystal.

There were others present but not the one who says he invented changa. In fact he was on the exclusion list and was not allowed to talk to Mr Ott as he had already displayed parasitic, opportunistic behavior. eg stripping trees in the forest

After Mr Ott had smoked acacia crystal he was asked what he thought. He said "Great colour, it'd last longer if you added caapi leaf."

It was never an invention it was a simple passing on of positive information. No price attached.

Mr Ott was never a skeptic he actually came up with the idea and then fringelings picked up half the idea and thought they'd make their own special recipes. Of which I saw and there was no caapi leaf in they just looked like chaff.

If you don't believe me, ask Mr Ott.

The immaturity displayed by acacaya and chocobeastie is phenomenal.

To think psychedelic enthusiasts are so into their own ego, it's quite sad.

It has been the biggest witch hunt I have ever encounted!

This thread is nothing more than a battle of egos. If chocobeastie truly coined the term "changa" for a blend of herbs, MAOI and DMT (which i don't doubt), then he should feel happy that he contributed. One does not need to keep on harping on about how "I made it, I invented it, I innovated it". I. I. I. I. Who cares? Just smoalk the damn magic.


Again, chocobeastie may have coined the term changa, but one cannot definitively say they are the first ever person to invent it.

Ever heard of Charles Darwin? Most people have. Ever heard of Alfred Wallace? Probably not. Just because someone became famous for a discovery, doesn't mean they are the first to discover it.
