    Ephedra sp. cultivation notes and discussion

    distachya . the fruits are much juicier and sweeter and pleasant from foeminea
  2. 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.

    Ephedra sp. cultivation notes and discussion

    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
  7. 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" ??

    Isolation chamber

    OK, I see.. I am mushrooms hunter myself. It seems I should read the Stamets book I bought a long time ago sometime. I have read about how myceliums could be used in construction, but I never got to read whats it about.

    Psychoactive Acacia Annotated Bibliography

    well its a specialised topic in a specialized format.. I have been mostly alone in my quest with ephedra and compiling papers.. But lonely while it can be, it can also be very fascinating. Also takes time , as compiling some stuff is only the begining.
