“Objects and their functions no longer had any significance. All I perceived was perception itself, the hell of forms and figures devoid of human emotion and detached from the reality of my unreal environment. I was an instrument in a virtual world that constantly renewed its own meaningless image in a living world that was itself perceived outside of nature. And since the appearance of things was no longer definitive but limitless, this paradisiacal awareness freed me from the reality external to myself. The fire and the rose, as it were, became one.”
― Federico Fellini
Psychedelics have had a profound effect on the human psyche, its being the opening up of the creative consciousness. But what if we had our first religious experience through that of psychedelics? what if psychedelic plants were the original founders of the first religion? How would that change the world?
did the world itself needs a spiritual awakening? maybe at that place in time the world needed an awakening, was the first instances of religious experiences through psychedelics found in the artwork that has being placed around the world today? does the bible itself hold clues to the psychedelic origins found in the beginning?
It's a very interesting concept and it makes us ask the question, so dive deep into this one ladies and gentlemen because this is powerful..
- Why this understanding of Psychedelics has being an integral part of ancient methodology,
- Lost In translation or covered up?
- Human evolution.
- Artist's leaving a hidden message to future seekers?
- Knowledge of how well this information was actually known in history among ancient civilisations
- Mystery schools
- Jesus’s awakening to his divinity and immortality by ingesting visionary plants?
- Trees of Knowledge, Adam & Eve could have actually been sacred mushrooms.
- A complete identity change of over 2.2Billion people. How would that change a whole religion?
- How psychedelics and visionary plants actually help ancient cultures of the past map consciousness and understand spirituality.

CHECK OUT THE EVIDENCE
“About two hours east of Plain Curalt is the parish church of St. Martin, again about a thousand years old. We walked into the choir of the church a saw a Christology. A story of the life of Christ. In this particular fresco, you have Christ entering Jerusalem. What we see here is the joyful youth greeting Jesus as he enters Jerusalem. They’re holding onto the stems of large, tan, smooth psilocybin mushrooms. Again, they’re very large because the artist wants to call our attention to them.”
“We found evidence of psychedelics in nearly 10 percent of all the art at Chartres Cathedral. Here’s one example. This is the conversion of Placidas the hunter. In his moment of illumination when he becomes Saint Eustace, he is surrounded by what we believe are psilocybin mushrooms. And there, coming down from the heavens through concentric circles, we see the hand of the holy spirit pouring illumination into Saint Eustace’s head and here it is, in the context of magic mushrooms.”
“Our first stop was in a tiny chapel in Plain Curalt in the center of France, about 60 feet deep and 20 feet wide. On the back wall is this fresco of Adam and Eve painted about a thousand years ago. It depicts the figures flanking an Amanita mushroom complete with red and white dots meticulously and systematically drawn on the cap with other mushrooms clustered around the base. Adam and Eve are not covering themselves with fig leafs, but with mushroom caps. This led us to a complete reinterpretation of the Eden story.”
“At the Canterbury scriptorium, a place where bibles were created from the time of Thomas Becket. There, the illuminated bible called “The Great Canterbury Psalter” was created. This was a large leather-bound, jewel-studed book with gold inlays. It was made for, maybe the king of France or the king of England. It’s richly illustrated. This image comes from Genesis, from the very first page and it is the front piece of our book. This is supposed to depict “God creates plants,” but wait a minute, here is “God creating psychoactive mushrooms.'”
