Below is a short three part documentary about mushroom, and then the move to truffle, growing in the Netherlands.

In the video a figure of 18,000 tons per year production is mentioned.

If you take it that common consumption is 15 Grams per dose this equates to 12 billion doses of this medicine a year; more than
enough for everyone in the world to have the experience of their life :)

Personally I think this should be 30 Grams and would reduce the availability to 6 billion doses.

We need to up production! ;)

Yes 15 g is not enough... should be at least 25 g per person (of the strongest).

:cool:

A few words about Hamilton Morris: though this guy obviously has a passion for "psychoactive" drugs, to which he devotes this entire series, and is even "officially" a shaman himself (he was "initiated" and given the "title" in Peru by another shaman during the episode devoted to the San Pedro cactus), it should be clarified that he does NOT believe any of such claims. He is in fact an atheist. His interest in the subject is purely scientific, historical and cultural.

Even though it is like flushing the toilet, for the sake of good form here is a quote from Rupert Sheldrake:

I agree with you that the direct experience of divine presence is not a conclusive argument for the existence of God, however convincing it seems to people who experience it. After all, some atheists who have taken psychedelics remain atheists, and see their mind-expanding experiences as nothing more than chemical disturbances of normal brain functioning, rather opening the doors of perception. Anti-psychedelic religious people agree. Some atheists practice meditation and experience expanded states of mind while remaining atheists, including Susan Blackmore and Sam Harris. They—and probably you, too—would no doubt explain these experiences as being produced inside the brain as a result of physiological changes in the nervous system, proving nothing about consciousness beyond human brains. But this interpretation is itself a product of belief. If you are committed to the materialist worldview, it is an article of faith that the mind is confined to the brain and cannot connect with a greater mind that pervades the universe, because such a mind does not exist.
