fUSION Anomaly. Cosmic Serpent
Therefore, in effect, curare was invented forty times. Perhaps this could explain phenomena such as telepathy and ESP. All do the same job but use slightly different ingredients, because the same plants donot grow in every region. The hunters needed oa that, when smearedon the tips of blow-pipe darts, would not only kill an animal but alsoensure that it does not tighten its death-grip on a branch and cozmica out ofreach as often happens with animals killed by arrows.
Since they have no science in the sense that we understand it, they must have learned how to make their medicines by trial and error. But there are some 80, species of plants growing in the Amazon rain forest, so todiscover an effective remedy using just two of them would dosmica require the testing of every possible combination – just under four billion.

In other words, they are made of their own language, like DNA. And the final result needs a specific piece of technology – the blow-pipe – to deliver it. This is something that is happening rightnow, and there is no suggestion of visitors from lost continents or spaceships landing.
Early in his work with the Ashaninca, Dr. The most nqrby type of curare requires a complicated method of preparation in which the extracts of several plants are boiled together for three days,during which lethal fumes are given off.
The interpreter, Carlos, referred to invisible beings, called maninkari, who are found in animals, plants, mountains, streams, lakes, and certain crystals, and who are sources of knowledge.
What is certain is that shamans acquire knowledge direct from some source without any process of trial and error. How was allthis discovered?
And that may involve another trip. True reality is more complex than our jedemy lead us to believe. Infact, if straightened out the strands of DNA would look exactly like a rope ladder. Extrapolations of this concept hold vast understandings for scientists able to transplant the pattern of this image into other contexts.
Author, Jeremy Narby leaps between science and mysticism on his quest to explain coemica several millennia ago Stone-Age hunters living in the Peruvian rainforest learned the botanical properties and the chemistry of plants. Second plants do not communicate like human beings. For ten years, Jeremy Narby explored Amazonian rain forests, the libraries of Europe, and some of the world’s most arcane scientific journals, following strange clues, unsuppressible intuitions, and extraordinary coincidences.
Narby perceived an enigma. This is what the Amazonians told Jeremy Narby about how they know the properties of plants and how to combine them. In short, they help to solve theproblems of the tribe, and help it survive.
They claimthat all were given to them by the spirits through their shamans. It is knowledge that theydidn’t have before, useful knowledge which we cannot explain – and which is often more advanced than ours.
One of the most important books this century. His book defines the purpose, and incredible power of DNA. Extraordinary insights into mystical knowledge. Plants reveal their own properties, Indians get molecularly verifiable information from drug-induced hallucinations. But serpiejte of their medicines involve not just two plants, but several. Narby finds that shamans insist with disarming consistency the world over on the existence of animate essences or spirits, which are nwrby to all life forms.
The spirits materialize when the shaman ingests tobacco and ayahuasca. It is early days for the DNA theory, but, in our view, it jermey a lot going for it. He writes, “These extremely practical and frank people, living almost autonomously in the Amazonian forest, insisted that their extensive botanical knowledge came from plant-induced hallucinations. Western knowledge considers hallucinations to be at best illusions, at worst morbid phenomena.
But what couldit do? Perhaps this is where we get the concept of being ‘enlightened’ from, and itcould be a literal description of the ‘Light’ of Gnosticism. Rationalism separates things to understand them.
