Amanita Muscaria

There is a DVD called the Pharmacractic Inquisition. Though Im sure this is not the first place this originated it is the first place I heard of it. It goes on to explain where the ideas of Santa Clause, Christmas, Easter, came from. And many more.

The shaman santa would go in search of the mushroom Amanita Muscaria. He would bring with him a large sack to carry what he gathered in. Be he couldnt carry the mushrooms all wet so he would hang them on trees. He would take the mushrooms into town in his sack and trade them for things. Trading the experiences they brought.

This is why the hat and his suit is red and white. This is what the pope wears too, red and white. Hes a giant freakin mushroom.
A single source for the notion that Nordic Vikings used A. muscaria to produce their berserker rages was first suggested by the Swedish professor Samuel Ödman in 1784. Ödman based his theories on reports about the use of fly agaric among Siberian shamans. The notion has become widespread since the 19th century, but no contemporary sources mention this use or anything similar in their description of berserkers. On the whole, muscimol, the psychoactive ingredient, is a mild relaxant, but it is widely known, as with all drugs that it can create a range of reactions within a range of people [87] and it is possible that it could make a person incredibly angry, as well as make them "very jolly or sad, [jump] about, [dance], [sing] or [give] way to great fright".


Then come in the knights of the round table and the holy grail cup. Well the mushroom bends upward and the water settles inside the top and gets very saturated with the chemicals.

Even now adays during easter we have no clue why we do it. What was the connection? The kids would be told by santa or whomever to go search for the easter eggs. Little kids could fit under the trees and were very quick and agile. While as the tall adults would give them something in return, money, food, whatever.

The mushroom can be found under specific trees and obviously resemble the easter egg. The trick was to find them which we have turned into a tradition and game for the kids.

I wanted to add the connection to the mario brothers games. I tried to trace the origin back as far as i could but my research only yeilded a video from a guy claiming to be the originator. Mario, luigi and the princess were all friends of his *he actually looks like mario too*. Mario was a young demolitions expert, princess was his first wife, and luigi was a cheif of police or something. So im not sure what else can be said about the origins. Kinda bland. The story of mario is interesting though.

Mario makes use of many items, which give him various powers. The most prominent of these is the "Super Mushroom", which allows Mario to grow to twice his size, becoming the eponymous "Super Mario", and can sustain damage before shrinking back down to "regular" Mario. Additionally, collecting a "Fire Flower" transforms Mario into "Fire Mario" and allows him to throw fireballs at enemies, and a "Starman" renders Mario temporarily impervious to harm.
I also remember the character Toad or Toadstool from mario. Toad is the general collective name of the "Mushroom People" found in the Mushroom Kingdom, who are a sapient, anthropomorphic mushroom race, with a peaceful, human-following monarchistic culture. The word 'toadstool' refers to poisonous or inedible mushrooms. The Amanita muscaria toadstool, instantly recognizable for its brilliant scarlet cap with white warts. This use has arisen due to the psychotropic and hallucinogenic compounds contained within the toadstool. Ingestion leads to 'expanded perception', macropsia (perceiving objects as enlarged)3, rapid heartbeat, dry mouth, and the belief that one could talk directly with one's Dog. It is no accident that fly agaric toadstools often appear in books of fairy tales.

The mushroom seems to be carrying on in our culture which seems fit considering it played such a huge part in our own development. In summary, it seems quite possible that the traditional image of Father Christmas, described in Livingston's poem and universalised by the Coca Cola Company during the 1930s, has its real origins in shamanistic rituals involving the red and white fly agaric toadstool. From climbing into chimneys and gift giving, to dressing in red and white and flying through the air with reindeers, travellers and storytellers have fused these ancient customs with other pagan traditions and imagery. As is the wont of Christianity, these pagan customs have pragmatically been adapted and integrated into our Christmas traditions.


Gnostic Media is proud to present this "YouTube Edition" of The Pharmacratic Inquisition DVD by Jan Irvin & Andrew Rutajit. The full length DVD has been split into twelve 10-minute sections making it easy to watch and share.

I just find this video series quite amazing. I think its the 5th or 6th video they get into explaining the mushroom as being the holy grail and all. really fascinating and well, it makes me rethinking this 2012 stuff as not being anything more than energy shifting. our energies will change and we will focus on something very different than what is normal now.

SOMA IN THE AMERICAS:
Over the years there has been much speculation among scholars concerning the true identity of the mystery plant in the Rig Veda called Soma, the only plant known to have been deified in the history of human culture, (Furst, 1972:201). While the hymns about Soma have come down to us through time, the botanical identity of Soma remains a mystery, forgotten over time. Theory's to Soma's forgotten identity, include rhubarb, cannabis, and the hallucinogenic Amanita muscaria mushroom. But today's leading candidate for Soma among Vedic and Hindu scholars is a species of Ephedra.

I present for the first time convincing visual evidence that the hallucinogenic Amanita muscaria mushroom was the true identity of Soma, and that both the Amanita muscaria and the Psilocybin mushroom were worshiped and venerated like the god Soma, in ancient Mesoamerica. These sacred mushrooms were so cleverly encoded in the religious art of the New World, and Old World, "Hidden in Plain Sight" that prior to this study they virtually escaped detection.
