from a travelogue, some guys kayak trip thru eastern russia "DO YOU WANT TO DANCE?" Log Date July 16, 2000 SOMNENIYA BAY Latitude: 60o 29' North Longitude: 167o 48' East
At Somneniya Bay we joined some Koryak people who were fishing and feasting. I watched as an wrinkled old woman with streaks of gray in her black hair ate a red mushroom. Later when she started to dance, I could not believe that she is 96 years old. The soft tundra soil vibrated with the rhythmic stomp of people's feet and beating drums. I sat spellbound in the soft golden light of 10 PM. Did I just go through a time warp or something?? I'm sure glad that Misha is here to translate the old woman's invitation. Next spring she wants me to come back with Chris to see a caribou birthing. WOW, I wonder if Reeve-Aleutian Airways has a frequent flyer program. This trip just keeps getting more fantastic!!
What are you? The topic police? Do you hold ANY human characteristics? I read your posts full of cold, calculative, analytical statements and I wonder if your even human. Oh i get it, your just trying to get your number of posts up. Be number one. Good job Yimmy.

Re: not dead yet - amanita muscaria use in former ussr [Re: thePatient] #755987 - 07/18/02 11:45 AM (16 years, 4 months ago)
Dude, don't be so hard on Sclorch. The poor fellow's a quadriplegic typing with his tongue on a keyboard attached to his chest - that's why anybody hardly gets angry with him here. Can you blame him for being bitter?
Oh, by the way, he's also a world renowned physicist.
Not necessarily, Sclorch. As a brief insight into continued mushroom use among a latter-day shamanic society (indeed, the v. tribal group that gave us the word 'shaman' in the first place) I would say that this post is right on topic. It's just a pity that more details on the mushroom rituals were not provided.
