Thus mythical unicorn of a plant is said to exist.

not unlike the Loch Ness monster,

photos surface every now and then....

yet, seldom or ever does the mythical beast ever materialize.

my interest in it is as a collectible and herbarium specimen.

some legends claim it is slow growing, possibly / apparently difficult to propagate,

and no one ever seems to have seeds either.

can anyone add to the legend of this plant,

with photos,  info on cultivation /growing, myths , ethnobotanical lore, or ?

do you think there would be demand if someone could miraculously produce this plant?

Local legends and whispers speak of the Keepers of the Cabrerana, a shadowy order within the land of oz that are said to posses this magical plant and guard its secrets, no one really knows how many of them there are or if they actually exist.

 

I would think given the status of this sacred mythical vine, if one could obtain it, the demand would outweigh that of leprechaun tears and screaming mandrake root combined.

Every time somebody posts that they possess it and will soon be able to send cuttings, torsten dispatches a squad of ethno-goons to smash up their greenhouse.

Ok, in order to summon this mystical mythical plant entity....

I will now invoke the magical powers of.....whatever will volunteer.

with this ancient spell.

i apologize, if the demands of the forces of....whatever color.....are not as PC as you might hope.

here goes....!!   Mucho thanko, Mr. Speare!

here goes, hold on to your hat!

 

       1 WITCH.  Thrice the brinded cat hath mew'd. 
       2 WITCH.  Thrice and once, the hedge-pig whin'd. 
       3 WITCH.  Harpier cries:—'tis time! 'tis time! 
       1 WITCH.  Round about the caldron go; 
    In the poison'd entrails throw.— 
    Toad, that under cold stone, 
    Days and nights has thirty-one; 
    Swelter'd venom sleeping got, 
    Boil thou first i' the charmed pot! 
       ALL.  Double, double toil and trouble; 
    Fire burn, and caldron bubble. 
       2 WITCH.  Fillet of a fenny snake, 
    In the caldron boil and bake; 
    Eye of newt, and toe of frog, 
    Wool of bat, and tongue of dog, 
    Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting, 
    Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,— 
    For a charm of powerful trouble, 
    Like a hell-broth boil and bubble. 
       ALL.  Double, double toil and trouble; 
    Fire burn, and caldron bubble. 
       3 WITCH.  Scale of dragon; tooth of wolf; 
    Witches' mummy; maw and gulf 
    Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark; 
    Root of hemlock digg'd i the dark; 
    Liver of blaspheming Jew; 
    Gall of goat, and slips of yew 
    Sliver'd in the moon's eclipse; 
    Nose of Turk, and Tartar's lips; 
    Finger of birth-strangled babe 
    Ditch-deliver'd by a drab,— 
    Make the gruel thick and slab: 
    Add thereto a tiger's chaudron, 
    For the ingrediants of our caldron. 
       ALL.  Double, double toil and trouble; 
    Fire burn, and caldron bubble. 
       2 WITCH.  Cool it with a baboon's blood, 
    Then the charm is firm and good.

It is a little out of focus,

but I am sure that is D. Cabrerana ...

just under the orange blur in the background of this photo....

I have used the miracle of modern digital imaging

to clarify the features of the mythical plant that is seen

in the background in the image referenced above.....

behind that lumbering man- ape thing....that got in the way.....

IT DOES EXIST AFTER ALL! The famed chupa cabrerana.....LIVES!

it IS REAL AFTER ALL,!

the legends whispered around fires for millennia.....are true!

this plant God...,.IS REAL IN OUR DIMENSION NOW,

praise Cthulu!

if I could do a fundraiser, or get some sort of Grant and goto this location

after pinpointing it with computer and GPS / satellite techniques

as well as a sort of magnetic resonance imaging and heat maps....

and of course assistance by whatever responded to our stew mentioned above, (which is done now....and there are plenty of leftovers )

do you think collectors of rare unusual ethnos would buy it, if propagated?

only as a collectible or herbarium specimen of course.

i somewhat regret being trapped in the USA, in some waye

wish I could escape to the Land of Oz

but I have limited means.....

so if I did journey to the sacred forest of the large footed man apes, and procure this mystical God- plant of yore

....I could only offer this highly rare botanical living gem in the USA .

for which I greatly apologize.

I want to fund my construction of a greenhouse for unusual

and overharvested collectible and medicinal plants...

How lame.

Well, it will never live up to your imagination of it.....

but if my suspicions are correct....

it does exist, and seems to be cultivated by a tribe of Bigfeet

who have been genetically altered by aliens

On a coast near the location of the Lost City of Atlantis

around the corner from Shangri-la.

it also inhabits its own special vibrational dimension

that co exists with us here on our own (individual) plane.

its molecules have been assembled by forces we cannot comprehend

from the atoms of distant stars that have gone supernova

at the far reaches of the galaxy

  • I myself find the division of the world into an objective and a subjective side much too arbitrary. The fact that religions through the ages have spoken in images, parables, and paradoxes means simply that there are no other ways of grasping the reality to which they refer. But that does not mean that it is not a genuine reality. And splitting this reality into an objective and a subjective side won't get us very far.

  • Consciousness is unquantifiable, a ghost in the machine, barely considered real at all, though in a sense this flickering mosaic of awareness is the only true reality that we can ever know.

He is right.  Whether or not something actually exists, like my fourteen inch dick for example, is a completely arbitrary distinction.
