Nothing magic in nightmare trip

01.05.2004


Young Argentine Noe Caffesse sat last night with legs crossed on his Timaru Hospital bed, lips and teeth stained black from drinking charcoal - a souvenir from his less-than-magical trip.

For 36 hours the 19-year-old cleaner and barman lay unconscious in bush near Lake Tekapo after eating three poisonous toadstools - which he had mistaken for hallucinogenic magic mushrooms.

He found the mushrooms near Mt John, but as soon as he took them he started to feel "strange".

He then became disoriented and said the last thing he remembered was falling over.

"When I woke up, I felt really sick so I started walking home."

Police and volunteers searched for him on Thursday but he was found asleep in his room at 6.30am on Friday. Mr Caffesse said despite having no food or water for two days he was feeling fine after taking charcoal to absorb the poison.

National Poisons Centre medical toxicologist Dr Michael Beasley said Mr Caffesse probably took a species called Amanita muscaria - "Satan's mushroom" .

"It causes central nervous system depression. It causes general drowsiness which in severe form can go into deep sleep and coma."

Got a question about a substance?  Erowid might already have your answer! Have questions about the  mushroom experience? The  Tripper's FAQ may have your answer or someone else might have had your question before.

He felt strange as soon as he took them?


--------------------
The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

Maybe he was tripping on psychedelic mushrooms and thought he would become bigger like mario from the amantia.
