    I wish I could get a caregivers licence like they have in some US states, I have a few people that could use the help.
  3. Or at least anyone with a decent amount of knowledge about the creation myths, Adam and Eve myths etc? I was raised as a Catholic and I need to work on eliminating a lot of extremely deep seated programming from my childhood. I had a few interesting "revelations" and there was a lot of info downloaded regarding the Genesis myths, garden of Eden stories, the "fall" and the nature of the demiurge. I'd love to chat about some of this with someone sometime. Still really trying to form a reasonably coherent line of thought about all of this. But I feel I'm getting closer to finding the root program that causes a lot of my dysfunctional behaviour.

    Hi everyone :) new here.

    "I came for the plants, but I stayed for the people." Is a pretty common theme.

    Bad Trips - James Jesso in Sydney

    I'll chat with you tomorrow buddy. I could relate the tale of my first mushroom experience when someone was car surfing and jumped off at 50kmh...

    Removing pups from horizontal logs

    It's a good spot to cut, less open wound to callous over and the cuts usually root faster ime.

    Also interesting that subs don't tend to do this to me as much as cubes. Maybe I'm just more incapacitated in general with subs and can't be bothered to even try to move!

    Bad Trips - James Jesso in Sydney

    It's more of an actual physical thing for me, I have low blood pressure at the best of times, but cubes really dilate my veins, and I've had several severe episodes that ranged from scary, to actual blackouts, to smashing myself up in a very bad way, waking up with an oxygen mask... A few of the SAB gang can attest that I go down at times. Nowadays, I can usually feel it coming and I get down as low as possible...

    Bad Trips - James Jesso in Sydney

    If I'm around I'll come and share a story or two. My last bad trip on shrooms sent me away from the whole deal for nearly 20 years. Not that I remember much of it, I got concussed and woke up with a smashed face.

    Removing pups from horizontal logs

    Just cut them at the base like any other offset and it's all the same technique from there.

    Courtii Seed

    If you have ever received obtusifolia seed from me, they were also from wild trees. I try to collect a small number of seeds from the largest number of different trees as I can. My opinion is that it's important to preserve as much diversity in phenotypes as possible, and taking 5-10 pods off each tree that is bearing hundreds is as minimal of an impact as I can manage. Also, and I know the birds have to eat, if I didn't collect these pods, 95% or more would be eaten by cockatoos within a week of them ripening. Of the remaining seeds, less than one percent would ever find suitable conditions and germinate. Even less would survive their first summer. I do take young plants back out there to replant amongst their parents so I am trying to give them as great a chance of survival as I can, apart from spreading their territory to your backyards. Bark rippers are killing a lot of these trees, and they need all the help they can get.

    They must "rage, rage, against the dying of the light..."
  15. Recently I have been experiencing visitations by birds on a daily basis. Most notably magpies, but also king parrots and crows. One magpie in particular is now so comfortable that he will eat from my hand. I call him Claude. King parrots are also making daily visits. Crows watch from a distance but are very vocal. This is a new occurrence that started a month or so ago, and it seems to hold some importance, but I'm not sure what to make of it. Magpies seem to be associated with a message to focus on spiritual pursuits rather than material ones (I'm hardly a materialistic person so I think there's something I'm missing). Parrots are associated with the need to be watchful and alert. These are the typical associations in dreams anyway. But my visitations are physical, so I wonder if there is more to the picture. Does anyone have any experience with bird visitation and their symbology?
  16. It's interesting that so much is binary in nature, yet in Catholicism in particular, the Trinity is the symbol. I like your analysis micromegas, that the fall was required for god to be of any relevance. I still find it hard to fathom how this story has travelled so far and wide, and taken over so much of the world. I guess the Roman empire had a lot to do with that though.

    The Nook is rebooting

    Its a shame they can't keep it all in one place, so much great info there from many years.
  18. They're all better tasting and much more economical than smoking. Some are just levels a over others. The mighty is just amazing. But, it'd want to be at the price. For $150, you'd get a solid piece if you do your research. The boundless is pretty good. I haven't tried the solo.

    Jeez, insequent, it's like you don't trust our policy makers to not deliberately mistake causation with correlation...
  20. Is it a diy job or a send away for service type job? This is good info to know when making a choice. A "responsible" choice...see what I did there?
  21. Battery life has been the death of my Vapes. If they would make them with replaceable batteries it'd be a nice touch.
  22. Ok, I think maybe I have confused this topic by mentioning two separate things, that are related but let's keep them separate for the sake of clarity. I have been working on my deprogramming for the last 30 years, and I'm reaching the end game ( I think!). I'm not really looking for assistance with this here. What I am looking for is some thought and analysis of the myths surrounding Adam and Eve mostly. Let me watch a few of the links you have added and messaged me, and I'll come back.

    Looking for Mongy ABC

    I still don't understand the desirability of this strain beyond curiosity status. Rumour has it it's a result of colchicine induced polyploidly, and as such, even many generations later, I'd be wary of consuming it. And it's effects are rumoured also to be pretty headache inducing anyway...
  24. Hahhaa. No. I am ridding myself of deep seated programming, a Trojan virus implanted as close to birth as they do. My childhood was beautiful but also terrifying as I was raised Catholic, and an ancient Irish Monsignor used to berate us children and tell us we were all going to hell. A lot of my life has been affected by feelings of guilt and fear, and I'm just now starting to be free from it all. I'm not sure why I'm so interested in the Genesis myths, but I find them fascinating. So many people take these as truth, which is kind of astounding when you look into them.

    Interesting times ahead. My money is on NSW being the last state to get with the program.
