    ^^ looks like distachya, but dont take my word for it. in any case, seems like a super strong plant.

    Lets talk metaphysics

    maybe it went fast to nowehere because your theism is so specific! if reality is a concept, lets see people walking though a wall PS: "physicists now believe everything in this physical universe is actually consciousness " NO THEY DONT!
  4. oh boy! I am not shying away, I will definately do this another time. one point only: I meant "wrong" in the sense that all this is a "no -argument" for me. logical fallacy or whatever they call these things... I mean that this whole arguement is totally irational and incosistent with scientific thought. which is to be expected as its a theistic arguement.. thats why theists love QM .. because as their old gods seemed to slowly die, there comes QM which seems to bring new arguements about god TBC
  5. sorry to ask for a 2nd time. for what stages of the disease are you talking about??? sounds as if you are talking about the last stages , 4 and 5, where there's little movement.
  6. Hey thanks for all the comments . Its going to be helpful to consider all these now, since my father is only now getting worse (maybe well into stage 2 now) . I have read up a bit more on the subject. Stimulants at recreational doses seem to cause deficit afterwards.. There's no evidence I could find this could work long term. In any case I was not thinking about stimulant doses, but rather smaller , tonic doses... But I have left that way of thought for now, since I have not been at all convinced that could really help and also not convinced there is not danger involved. I think the most helping aid should be CBT.. yep its legal in greece now (since recently) . I think it would be the easiest and safest to use.. read many nice things about that. then you got henbane, which should be tricky to normalise and use but has a LONG history of helping relieving symptoms and I feel really great with those plants, I can try first etc... the easiest and safest way would be to smoke joints, and my dad doesnt smoke, so there's that.. also there is banisteriopsis material, which is also supposed to be able to help, was supposed to replace tropane alkaloids back in the day, but didnt raise to the promise... Supposedly lots better than Peganum, but then again, the MAOI in there should make it pretty complicated, and also there doesnt seem to be lots of modern use and reports.. Iboga was proposed to me by some cool cat, but I am still hesitant, I was under the impression that iboga is a pretty toxic and hard to dose material, but I really dont know much. There is a good chance I will get to speak with a neurologist / psychiatrist friend of my father before he sees his regular neurologist doc, so I intend to talk about all these.. he is a nice dude, but I dont think he likes psychoactives very much... both his kids had drug induced mental problems in the past , so...... we will see.... But I have talked to my mother about supplementary action like CBT and she is positive... But as you say, Darklight, maybe the harder part would be to find a sympathetic doc for anything more complicated than CBT... Also pride is a thing, yeah.. and also the denial (on my mothers part) of the whole thing... I think that soon (well I hope not so soon) we are going to be worrying about falls so sooner or later we should be taking a walking stick.. the floatation device thing is a good suggestion... Again, thanks a lot
  7. My father is such a great and sweet guy. My mom was always more dominant I am 41 btw , lol so doctor has been saying he going well, despite the tremor he saiod he was not worrying about my father has started to seem hesitant to go to swim, he seems to be having a harder time to navigate and move his limpbs in water... I might seem like an idiot to be asking but I have thought about it a long time what would khat or ephedra do for a person like my dad?? would they hit and then deplicit the dopamine? could they both enhance and slow the circle???? my gut says this might imporove my dad, but then again, will this be good long term??

    Ephedra sp. cultivation notes and discussion

    distachya . the fruits are much juicier and sweeter and pleasant from foeminea
  9. Thank for your kind words. I think its a really awesome discussion, and its kind of funny, considering the thread title.. Like you wrote in some other thread, facebook is not good for such discussions, but forums definately are. Some quick thoughts.... maybe its human inability to preceive it or grasp it on the whole, that results in so many different and wrong religious/theist/spiritual models. Wrong in that its never universal and differs vastly from person to person and from culture to culture. Or maybe we have to "let go" to hope we could perceive it some day. RE: Quantum mechanics + stuff. you additional arguements about how causality changes dont matter at all. Its still wrong. Its still about microcosmos . Its not so weird microcosmos functions in a totally different way that we cannot understand, hence the tons of mathematics... I cant help that all this stuff are coming from people that are pissed off at science and found a new way to challenge atheistic , rationalistic, materialistic philosophies that are on the rise in the modern world .. But I dont find anything worth of depunking there, in the same reason I wont go into details in the bible to prove to a theist that there is no god. Philosophically and politicaly, these kind of neo-theists are my enemies. Maybe more so than the old-skool theists and preachers. You parallel of myth and science (Ernst Cassirer quote) , is very interesting, as you put it. I will think a bit more on that. Also interesting, is what you call ""transcendental loop" ciao for now... (will propably revisit these points)

    SAB discord

    well I dont know what discord is, but from my FB experience, the best type of groups are private groups specialised in one subject, with relatively few (can be as few as 20 or 30, or even 8-10 people) but active members . I agree with northerner that SAB has somewhat that appeal, in a slower time line. Like he said, most visit once a month or rarer. Its pretty cool that is still alive though if its a chat - space, I am in

    Mandrake cultivation discussion

    I didnt mention this before, but we have an awesome and active group in facebook dedicated to mandragoras, we are some ~35 individuals from all over the world, we trade, we discuss, we share our findings, analyze papers on the genus, we talk about sources of seed, and mostly we are having fun. We have even started a musical project dedicated to mandragoras!! So, a lot like what this place used to be.. If you are growing mandragoras or even starting now with seeds, and are interesting to join, PM me for more.

    distachya fruits.. The female plans were much bigger than the male plant that provided the pollen.. remains to be seen is if it was enough to pollinate the whole thing or I would need a bigger plant next year (fruits/cones are currently maturing) The fruit is juicy , very slightly sweet, and dare I say tasty?? much better and with more flesh than foeminea, thats for sure. re/sinicas, still have no male, still waiting for one of my big ones to flower for the first time (and hope its male) re/chiloensis, unfortunately, the 2 biggy ones I have both turnt up male - got another two in the ground in the mountain house which are still small.. re/minima, the splitting of the tuft to propagate seems to have effected the flowering, only a few cones produced this year
  14. Dunno.. I am in a creative streak those months and I thought its a pretty nice chance... maybe ephedra cultivation .. maybe mandragora stuff.. in the mandragora stuff I might get more people to participate in the video, as we have a really cool team of amateur research. maybe amanitas (I have made a pdf mini -guide on amanitas) .. or maybe all 3 topics (3 different videos) if I get this right and have enough juice and manage to do it technically .... Oh, well, nothing of these are ozzie, what do you mean by "apology it an Australian live stream" ??
