if the leaders of a city-state are employing consciousness-altering plants, then the entire culture are being led into the future of hallucinatory vision. Gordon Wasson and Jonathan Ott are seekers of the full mind's future. A must read.

This is clearly the finest and most detailed single resource on psychoactive plants and their sacramental use that has yet been written. Nothing else comes close.

I do not understand the dictum "ignorance is bliss." Ignorance means other people get to tell you what your worldview should be. It's amazing and exciting to me that whole worlds open up mythically, biologically, psychologically and historically through a psychoactive plant or fungus.

Nothing short of a masterpiece, just as any other work by Mr. Ott... tragic that they're so hard to obtain now.
