Knows that I love and appreciate them, there are no regrets, no ‘sorrys’ left unsaid, no unfinished chapters. It means that everything in my life is complete on all levels so that I can relax and be in the now. It also means that ‘having taken care of business’ that we treat every moment as precious and can enjoy the outcome of our choices and recognize all that comes our way for what it is – a reflection of our own consciousness and a chance to grow and learn. It also means being appropriate with others, offending no one, especially not our Divine Self by ignoring Its voice.
The Inner View When prana is flowing through the fields of a food free bio-system, the filaments within every cell respond by vibrating and absorbing the nutrients needed from the Theta – Delta wave that is flowing through the system. If the Theta – Delta mix is too weak and the bio-system is more Alpha – Beta tuned, it will not be as well nourished. Also, if the biosystem is working purely with Beta waves, then the physical body, if it is not fed by physical food, will go into the starvation and fasting mode.
Wells jumps right into the action with this rimerestaurant.ca/author/unbrake story of growth-hormones gone amiss. Giant wasps, giant rats, giant chickens…no wonder the countryside is terrorized! However, his intrepid scientists decide ‘NBD’ and give the growth formula to children. Intending to create a new growth agent for food with beneficial uses to mankind, two scientists, Mr. Bensington and Professor Redwood, create a ground breaking chemical substance that accelerates growth in both plants and animals.
If we were ever truly enlightened, you would recollect skimming this tome with me from time to time. One is reminded of accounts of modern pygmies smoking marijuana before hunts. It affords them the effective patience to stand still for long periods while awaiting prey. That too is a plausible case of a drug affording a reproductive advantage. I picked this book off Michael Miley’s shelves while visiting him in Sonoma having read previously McKenna’s Archaic Revival.
Food of the gods excerpt provides convincing arguments that we have lost our ancient relationship with chemicals, and that there is a lot they can tell us about our origins and place in nature. Human brains tripled in size in the past 3 million years. This fast growth happened during climate fluctuations, our ancestors being pushed from forests into grasslands where they may have found psilocybin mushrooms. These could offer some evolutionary advantages, like enhanced visual acuity at low doses and at high doses the introduction of more complex patterns of language and culture. Studies show a hallucinogenic experience makes people measure higher in personality traits related to “openness” and creativity.
In 1502, Christopher Columbus was the first European to encounter cocoa. He captured a canoe that contained cocoa beans, which were considered “mysterious-looking almonds” and identified as a form of currency in Mesoamerica . As an excuse, the Wassons asked Don Aurelio, an adept, whether the mushrooms could tell them what was going on at home during their absence, and attended an all-night séance in a darkened hut to hear the answer. Don Aurelio treated the mushrooms with the utmost reverence and, after an address to the Trinity and certain saints, began eating them in pairs, until he reached fourteen. How Gordon Wasson relinquished his mycophobia is a charming idyl. It should be prefaced by a glance at a map of the two main mushroom-eating areas in Europe.
The chickens escape, leaving carnage in their wake. The Skinners and Redwoods have both been feeding their children the compound illicitly—their eventual offspring will constitute a new age of giants. Public opinion rapidly turns against the scientists and society rebels against the world’s new flora and fauna. Daily life has changed shockingly and now politicians are involved, trying to stamp out the Food of the Gods and the giant race. Comic and at times surprisingly touching and tragic, Wells’ story is a cautionary tale warning against the rampant advances of science but also of the dangers of greed, political infighting, and shameless vote-seeking.
