i havent figured that out either... maybe the mushroom is really a person that learned if he made this stuff he could be all trippy and enlightened and then he could just sit there and eat shit out of the ground all day?

3 possibilities:

1. defence mechanism

2. encourage mechanism(encourages you to ensure it's continuity)

3. complete accident

I wonder if huge fields of mushrooms work like brains?  :scaryshroom:

Expanding on Isaac's #4, and borrowing some Mckenna, psilcybin is in there because mushrooms are evolutionary tools for man. In its original use, mushrooms would be taken to find the best food, water source, things like that-things that help man.

That would be number 2 as well..I think the first three covered it, IMO.

last i heard it was a by-product of the mushroom's metabolism. i.e. its not there because its beneficial for the fungus, but the process that creates it is beneficial.

Yeah you're right scat. Sometimes my brain misses things, or forgets them very fast.

I think it's a defense mechanism gone wrong.
Or, possibly, the shrooms are actually people and the psilocybin is their human equivalent of serotonin (not making fun of the magic junkies, that is a real possibility).
But self defense sounds much more logical and likely.

It's indicative of evolutionary transitions. Perhaps if this organism produces the same, or analogous, neurotransmitters and chemicals, at some time in our distant past we were very closely related.

i always thought it was defence, as 20-30g would trip a human off there face, imaging what it would do to a mouse or a bird or what ever would normaly eat mushrooms in the wild :smile: so im sure its poison to stop things eating it but now you guys have me thinking ... damn youse haha

You think a mouse or a bird is going to eat 20-30 grams? That probably a quarter of its body weight. An animal would eat differing amounts relitive to its size, and its quite likly an animal, without paranoia and the inane thoughts that bother people, that they could handle it just fine. Of course it may be there to scare them away, and it might scare them more then us, I dont know, thats just how I see it could be. Really it could be any of the things and I tend to lean toward a natural by product that just accidentally naturally occurs. I always get the feeling, if you could ask the mushroom that question, it would laugh at us and go, "Man, I was just taking a piss" or something...

Well think on this: You ever get your dog stoned? Some dogs really like it. but many that I've seen, get this really confused look on their face, and act, well, stoned. Ok, now flash to nature. Some wild animal is stomp stomp stomping through the woods. And holy shit! There's some good lookin' food growing on poo! Lets eat it. After the big stoopid animal has had its fill, it moves on....and things start to get weird. What the hell must this animal be thinking? Since the animal has no concept of drugs or tripping, it's probably shitting it's figurative pants off! You think that lumbering ass is gonna eat shrooms again? No time soon.....

I've heard of crickets colored bright red so that predators will eat one. once a predator eats one, it will never bother another b/c of the horrible taste.

Defense mechanism gone wrong? Depends on how you look at it.

(the preceding has been a totally uneducated guess)
