  1. Happy Birthday to you both!
  2. Apparently Neville has spent considerable time in oz in recent years
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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...
  6. 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?
  7. A bit of tlc and it'll come good for sure.
  8. Yeah looks like a badly neglected PC pachanoi. The other two are pilosocereus not Trichocereus.
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Your vine trimmings smashed and boiled, strained and evaporated onto the leaf makes an Excellent smoalk, at least that's what I hear.
  13. You'll need to dry your vine to weigh it accurately. 90g or so of vine finger thickness or more is what you want. Smaller vine you'll need more. Leaf adds more THH, and also is more emetic. Advice is purely theoretical.
  14. I think the greens are smart enough to see that it's happening under the party most people thought least likely to allow it, and they are rushing to stay in the race.
  15. Some liquid culture or a good squirt of spores in solution added to the water trough where the bovines drink perhaps.
  16. Pine forests are usually state forests/recreation areas and you can walk through them to your heart's content.
  17. It looks like its semi monstrose which is very cool.
  18. Bro, if we can each get a slice of the pie I'm a happy man. Pie for everyone in fact!
  19. Hi Alchemica, do you know which of the above species the rhizome I got from you is? I found a nice spot in the garden for it!
  20. It's funny RC, two years ago you, @Yeti101 and I put ourselves out there in a Senate committee hearing, and I honestly didn't hold out much hope that anything would change. Now I'm hearing Richard Di Natale campaigning with what sounds like our submissions almost verbatim. What is shitting me though is that it's the rich who, yet again, are about to make all the money and I hope there is room for small operators in the end. I've decided that's what I'd like to spend the rest of my life doing if I can make a legitimate go of it. Small scale, high quality organic ganja for connoisseurs, in a vertically integrated business that is my own.
  21. Anyone watch Four Corners last night? It seems things are moving quicker than I anticipated in the rush to get rec cannabis up. Once the venture capitalists get the lobbyists involved it's a foregone conclusion.
  22. The tall column in the big pot is very interesting.
  23. Hook me up bruv Nic. I managed to kill all mine with too much sun on a shallow seed flat in December.
  24. Happy 420 all. Wishing you sunny vibes
