There is a great book called Trips: How Hullcinogens Effect The Brain by (Cheryl Pellerin)? . Look it up on Amazon. They only store I've ever seen it in is Tower Records.

THE COSMIC GAME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I cant say enough good things about this book think of my description as a recipe

Take a bunch of VERY important spritual texts from long ago
add the knowledge from 6000 psychedelic studies and 30000 breathwork studies(breathwork being a form of meditation)
and a dash of quantum physics (my fav topic in the last couple of months)

mix it all together and you have
THE COSMIC GAME

I feel SOOO strongly about this book I really want at least one of you to read it
I am SURE you will love it
I read ittwice and will one day buy it just to flip through it , re read certain sections and lend it to friends it reallly is that good!!!

Peace
Psilocybeing(we are all psilocybeingz......did you think meat and luck made us monkeys smart and thats all .....HA ..and spore survie space and they just "cam out of nowhere" the usual explanation about why you cant find old mushroom fossils is because they degrade to easy well worms and other soft body things can be found , but in the fossil record mushrooms show up quick and take over fast!

Acid Dream and Storming Heaven are close to being the same materials in each book but from a different perspecitive.

Storming heaven also covers three chapters on shrooms but is mostly about LSD.

How could I have forgotten to mention Doors of Perception and Heaven and Hell (both by Aldous Huxley)? Both are centered on mescaline but generally applicable to other entheogens. They're both very interesting and important in the history of psychedelics.

www.csp.org
their entheogen chrestomathy has a vast quantity of works reviewed, with short excerpts
www.thefane.org has a buncha links to variuos spiritual/psychic/psychedelic areas
erowid & lycaeum have reviews of books & brief sketches of some folks who are prominent in the field...
other websites (google 'em...):
eleusis
heffter foundation
hofmann foundation
island group
alchemind
(an online version of alan watts' _the joyous cosmology_ (the printed version has some amazing b&w pictures...) is still out there somewhere ( www.psychedelic-library.org has removed their html version at the request of dr. watts' literary estate (but they still have plenty of intersting stuff online!!!), but something like "acidmind" (i forget, but it is a musical group's website with several interesting pages...))
~
c'mon folks, there's plenty more websites & books...
of course, there are a few threads on this very topic here at the shroomery (s&p or arts or general or, i dunno...); utfse, mmm?
anybody else?

Alexander Shulgin's PIHKaL and TIHKal are must haves for anyone interested in psychedelics. Shulgin is the chemist responsible for the 2-C's as well as over 200 other psychoactive substances.

Full text of PIHKaL

second half of TIHKaL

In his books he spends the first half talking about his life and interest in psychoactives. The second half of each book is filled with hundreds of phenylamines and tryptamines respectively, their chemical synthasis, and notes on different dose levels, or experience reports, for each substance.


--------------------
“Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience. It is not about feeling good. It is about endurance. Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root: pati. It does not mean to flow with exuberance. It means to suffer.”
- MZD

If there is a single lesson that life teaches us, it's that wishing does not make it so. Words and thoughts don't change anything. Language and reality are kept strictly apart- reality is tough, unyielding stuff, and it doesn't care what you think or feel or say about it... You deal with it and you get on with your life. Little children don't know that. Magical thinking: that's what Freud called it. Once we learn otherwise we cease to be children."
-Lev Grossman

Acid Dreams


--------------------
"In The Material World One seeks retirement and grows Old
In The Magical World One seeks Enlightenment and grows Wiser
In The Miraculous World One seeks nothing and grows Lighter
As we all tread the Homeward Path we will explore many Realms
And one day... we will all Realize that all experiences are Simply
Different ways in which The
All-That Is
Perceives Itself"
