    Thought y’all might enjoy this interesting conversation that James W. Jesso hosted with a few of us about where the Australian psychoactive Acacia species fit into the local psychedelic scene here, and how our interactions with these species connect us to a deeper connection with the spirit of the land: https://www.jameswjesso.com/drinking-the-psychedelic-acacia-trees-of-australia-psychedelic-cafe-5/?fbclid=IwAR1goTSu03e3fP0QGs_DjGLAL3fC62K8nBkYv3Pu4MgmfLJV6CA5RqG2uv0

    Hey I have discovered that certain species of fungus grow amazingly well outside in Scotts Osmocote 50L Premium Potting Mix that you can get from places like Bunnings. It's the stuff in the orange bag. I mixed spent substrate with the potting mix to use as mushroom compost. I did this in pots and in the ground. Some time later there were flushes of HUGE mushrooms. I then tried using colonised grainspawn instead of spent substrate from trays just to play around. I mixed some of the grainspawn into the top layer of 30cm pots containing chillies and added some of the fresh potting mix on top. After a short period I got fruiting, including some big, fat ones from just the 30cm pots. In addition, tropical mushrooms have been growing in cold outside conditions when the aforementioned happened, However, the ones that fruited in the colder conditions were in areas where there was some sunlight which would have heated up the soil in the ground and pots. Furthermore, I really noticed how mycelium can be used to prevent erosion since it helped keep the soil together in places in my garden where water might dislodge it. I hope this helps you. Cheers

    Hey all, Just thought I'd bring to the community's attention that Mardi Grass is going ahead this year, 30th April to 2nd May. Old mate RC might even make a guest appearance in the Healer's Tent on Saturday to have a yarn about psilocybin mushrooms and that. Plenty of other cool talks and what not about the place too. Check out the lineup and find other info here: https://nimbinmardigrass.com/ Peace, RC

    So... After about 50 failed attempts at logging in, 30 or so more at the email address linked to this account… Then, probably another 30 or so more tries on another old email I had linked to that account, I finally managed to crack a secret question (which to my amazement... and well, mostly frustration, was an ex girlfriends name for the “name of my first pet” secret question… Go figure!). Anyway, after this montage of me trying every possible password, getting locked out, waiting 15 minutes and trying again, spread out over the course of about, what? 3 days… I finally managed to get in! (Sorry for the “fraudulent activity” Torsten - if you're still around). So it appears I have not been an active member on the Corroboree for more than 6 years. There are a number of unanswered messages in my inbox (sorry for the late reply) and I notice that a number of long standing members seem to have disappeared (or maybe they’ve forgotten their secret questions too?). The forums appear a little lonely, and the activity seems a little… dull? (Or maybe I’m just not looking hard enough, you tell me. What’s that community like these days?) Indeed, things have changed. As everything does. But, I’m back! And it’s been a long time coming… There have been many unambitious attempts over the years to reengage, a lot of half motivated, languid stabs at the keyboard; partially completed new accounts - numerous hours spent vexatiously agonising over display names (what was I thinking with this one!) - but it didn’t feel right. It wasn’t the right time. The planets had not aligned, the moon wasn't right.. or, my chakra’s weren’t spinning or whatever other hippy shit I believed in at the time… I wasn’t in the mood. Now, apparently, I am. So, Hello. What’s happening? Anyone else in the northern rivers sick of this rain yet? I pulled a fuck-ton of Trichs out this week that were at various stages of rot. (Fucking clay!) Here’s a pic. And well.. I guess I don’t have much else to say as of yet.. I’ll have to get back into the "forum" swing of things… relearn the lingo, give tips to noobs, post blurry pics and feel embarrassed by senior psychonauts (oh wait, I’m one now!) Anyhow, I will leave you with some of my recently taken, sensual pics to set the mood. enjoy.

    Nice work obtuse and EGA team! Friend of EGA, fungi educator, and psychedelic mushroom expert Caine Barlow has been generous enough to help us develop this unique resource reviewing the current literature and community knowledge around P. subaeruginosa. The reference guide includes species and habitat descriptions, history, pharmacology, poisonous lookalikes and other safety and legal issues. Caine has also helped us include a fantastic list of related resources, making it easy for the mycologically minded to get up to speed on the current research, and for Australian fungi foragers to choose the guidebook most suited to their needs. The guide is very visual and includes images by EGA community including Tannar Coolhaas, Beau Meister, Konan Farrelly-Horsfall, and EGA's Jonathan Carmichael. Caine is also responsible for this fantastic presentation that gives a much broader overview of Australian Psilocybe species and their lookalikes. If you find this resource helpful, please support EGA so we can make more! You can download the PDF via this webpage.

    I can't wait to get a jab. Any of them. Personally I consider myself a logical person and read everything I can in the subject at hand. I compare the hazard x likelihood of occurrence of taking the vaccine vs the same in remaining unvaccinated. It really is a no-brainer. I'm not pro-big-pharma. I don't like their immunity to consequences. I don't think they act in the best interest of public health. I do believe their motivations are purely monetary. I do think these vaccines were rushed and I do think there's propaganda on pro-vaccine as well as anti-vac sides of the argument. But the maths still checks out and that's the bottom line.

    Aw crew... Jess and I just watched this for the first time, which neither of us would normally ever do, but it was a lab day here and we wanted to see how it all went from the viewer's perspective It was super fun and not a bit nerve wrenching to be a part of it, we had so much ground to cover, and the EGA crew is always great to work with, so professional and inclusive and bloody thorough as well But even from the other side of the screen I was proud to be a part of that webcast. It was a pleasure meeting the panellists I hadn't met before the event, hell there are some seriously talented and experienced people in the scene these days, the panel are just a representative group put together for the evening. I reckon the vid showed Australian mushroom science, and Psilocybe science in particular, as a complex topic worthy of real consideration from multiple perspectives- social, cultural, environmental, clinical, academic and legal I cant thank you guys enough, EGA are really showcasing the maturity of the Australian psychedelic scene in a balanced way that's accessible for everyone- whether they're trippers or not. Whether they're rich or not. Whether they're listed on the stock exchange or not... oh fuck sorry I just went off on a tangent lol Thanks to Nick and Lee and Liam who really went above and beyond behind the scenes and who also make scientific contributions in their own right ( which I'd love to hear more about ) And thanks to Torsten for frantic last minute tarzanning around at his place so the NNSW interwebs would behave after the satellite connection shat itself about 30 min before we started. That was some serious Chuck Norris work right there and fuck it was cold outside Also the comments were brilliant. I too would snort Freud's ashes, but only if I could confirm by sequencing that they were, in fact, Freud's ashes and we had decent chain of custody documentation for them so no ash substitution was possible before they reached my nasal cavities. If you're thinking of taking part in an EGA presentation or submitting some work for distribution via EntheoTV, yeah, I would definitely do that. Go for it. The EGA team is gold

    I stumbled across something interesting wrt this subject. Moderators please edit or delete this if it crossed any lines. From Ossato et al. 2017. Trichocereus pachanoi - Quando la globalizzazione minaccia la tradizione. http://eprints.bice.rm.cnr.it/16780/1/Trichocereuspachanoi- Ossato Canazza Polia Marti.pdf Translated from Italian with google translate Among the cacti to which the generic name of "sanpedro" or "achuma" applies, the curandero chooses the "Sanpedro legítimo", the species with tiny spines (Properly the Trichocereus pachanoi Britton & Rose). Species with longer spines and reaching greater heights, known as "gigantón" or "aguacolla", due to their reduced psychotropic power they are considered "palos cobardes: cowardly cacti". Sanpedro is also known by the name of "huando", derived from the verb Quechua wantay, "to bring on the shoulders ”and referring to the power of the plant. However, although both species of Trichocereus enjoy a conspicuous amount of hallucinogenic active ingredients, the species most used in divination practices, remains the Trichocerus pachanoi (the legitimate sanpedro), a name that the shamans of the area invoke referring to the "powerful sanpedro that holds the keys of Paradise "or in Quechua language," achuma ", probably related to the term" kachum ", or cucumber. In fact, even today the cactus is called "achumo" or "achuma" in reference to the fact that the curanderos (the Peruvian Maestros) use the thornless variety for their divination and therapeutic practices.

    I've recently been reading the "Red Book" by Jung. Not the physical version as it's far too expensive, but maybe one day I'll get it. Just in PDF format. It's been a hell of a ride.. just thought I'd share some of the illustrations from the book as they certainly fit with the psychonaut theme. If anyone wants and can't find a copy of the book pm me. There is a version including the pictures, written in german, and also a "readers version" that contains just the translated text.

    Topic is fine as long as it doesn't spread misinformation. If anyone's advice diverges from the official line then they must reference this properly (no, youtube videos are not references). Pfizer is running out and unless you're in 1a or 1b you won't be getting it until the new batch arrives late in the year. if you are 1a/b then you would need to go to a vaccination hub to get Pfizer, as they don't do that one in clinics. If you're not high risk and are worried about the AZ then you can just wait. If you're in a location and situation where social distancing is easy then doing that for another 6 months is easy. You need to talk to your GP (or better specialist) about your clots. Most clotting disorders are not caused by the same mechanism as AZ so whether your get them or not is likely irrelevant. Are you on heparin or have you ever had heparin? If so (and you didn't get a clotting event from the heparin) then you also won't get it from AZ. The clotting mechanism is the same. Yes, you'd expect about 50-100 deaths from AZ if every single aussie gets AZ. That's less than even a small localised covid outbreak. But not everyone will get vaccinated, nor will all get AZ, so the number is dramatically smaller. Getting on a plane to europe has a far greater clotting risk than AZ and most people don't give that a second thought.
