  1. I try not to live in fear, but I also like to keep a low profile.

    Introducing: "SAINT PAUL"

    You forgot the part where noobie made one of the guests a soothing cup of tea after the guest fell out of his chair, having been bewitched by three toots of a magical steamwhistle! That cup renewed his spirits majestically!
  3. Horus, I don't share your optimism when I envisage this scenario unfortunately. Did Dr Andrew Katelaris get a fair hearing?
  4. Torsten has pointed out many times that it is unlikely to make a difference what state of preparation a substance is in for the purpose of prosecution. If the law thinks your intent is consumption, it's much of a muchness. Probably easier to prove a case with dried chips, but who'd want to test the water?
  5. Never underestimate the power of knee jerk reaction public outrage.. And if statistics matter so much to the police, why are statistically safe substances like cannabis illegal while statistically unsafe ones like alcohol remain legal?
  6. Yep. Last thing we need is some current affair type making a big outrage story from this king of thing. Facebook is already starting to disallow sales of plants with certain words in the listings and PayPal has refused payments to be processed too.

    any active salvias besides sally d

    Smoking half a leaf of divinorum is unlikely to produce effects either, yet it is most definitely active. The first time I tried divinorum it was very underwhelming. Perhaps there are compounds in other salvias that are much less heat stable, maybe even orally active.

    looking for sub prints (for microscopy purposes)

    I'll try to get a bunch of prints for you all, if I can beat the snails and slugs...

    This section needs a "show wild finds" thread

    Ol' spoogie knows how to look after his local.
  11. I have 6 large plants free to anyone who can pickup from Sydney (royal national park area). Too large to post. They are bare rooted so the sooner the better. Mixed blue/white flowers.
  12. As per the heading, I'm looking for seeds of these varieties to trade. Pm me if you gots ems.

    Happy 420 !!! thread

    Apparently Neville has spent considerable time in oz in recent years
  15. Agreed, we are talking conceptually. And also agreed, there is no absolute, everything is subjective. But I don't need to understand the totality. If I possess consciousness, then it is possible.
  16. OK. What I'm trying to say is I think it is necessary for consciousness to be a universal and underlying property of this universe or how else could it be possible for us to experience consciousness at all? It would violate the laws of the universe. Wouldn't it?
  17. We are the cosmos trying to experience and understand itself, in our variety. I'm wondering, does my leg have consciousness? Or only my brain? Or does my brain actually seat my consciousness at all. "I" feel like I'm centred in my skull mostly. Need to think about this more...
  18. I think about this a lot, but I'm going to struggle to put my thoughts in order. Do objects we consider inanimate exist in a timescale that is incomprehensible to us, giving us this impression? How can we imagine particles being conscious? Or galaxies? In the same way, how can a bacterium comprehend our consciousness? It seems there is collective consciousness at many levels. After all, we are a collection of individual cells. Are we all mere particles in some greater organism? Does an individual cell possess any awareness? All I have is questions, and poorly formulated ones at that. There seems to be validity in the saying "as above, so below". Galaxies are similar to atoms in some way. Why would consciousness not follow these rules?

    Yeah looks like a badly neglected PC pachanoi. The other two are pilosocereus not Trichocereus.

    Sick green catha

    That's the problem with mites, the plant they arrive on isn't where they stay. I worked out that someone gave me a chili plant with mites, nek minit my lophs, arios, stenocactus etc and some other plants were all infested. I lost a lot of rare location cultivars. Is WC actually PH?

    Sick green catha

    Anyone that ignores mites is in for a real fun time. Sure, they get a toehold due to something being out of balance in your garden, but once they are there, if you don't take decisive action, you're gonna lose plants. I had spider mites for the first time this summer among my lophs. I didn't act quickly enough and guess what? I lost a bunch of rare plants. Telling Dicko it's his fault and in the same breath also saying he's obsessing is not helpful and is a bit of a dick move.

    effected by Brugmansia?

    For me, it's perfume fills the night with intoxicating scent, and it's the most beautiful flower. But I've always been fascinated by tropanes, from an early age I read about witches and flying ointments. These plants just have mystique.
