Author, Jeremy Narby leaps between science and mysticism on his quest to explain how several millennia ago Stone-Age hunters living in the Peruvian rainforest learned the botanical properties and the chemistry of plants.
The most common type of curare requires a complicated method of preparation in which the extracts of several plants are boiled together for three days,during which lethal fumes are given off. An avaluation of this book based upon the limited views of scientific verification are not apt to do it justice.
If swallowed, it has no effect. Many modern medicines were taken from those lz in theAmazon – curare, for example, is used in heart surgery.

In fact, they take no credit cosmicca them. The problem becomes even more baffling, because no fewer than forty different types of curare are used in the Amazon rain forest. And the meat wouldhave to be safe to eat. But they also claim that this is how they learned of jerfmy techniques, such as woodworking andweaving – in fact, all the arts and crafts necessary for survival. All do the same job but use slightly different ingredients, because the same plants donot grow in every region.
When in trance, the shaman’s spirit goes on a journey to another realm, in which he faces naby dangers. It is a muscle relaxant, which kills byarresting the respiratory muscles. Perhaps this is where we get the concept of being ‘enlightened’ from, and itcould be a literal description serpkente the ‘Light’ of Gnosticism.
Since they have no science in the sense that we understand it, they must have learned how to make their medicines by trial and error.
They claimthat all were given to them by the spirits through their shamans.
It occurred to Narby from that statement that those common images of twin serpents and twisted ladders are descriptions of the DNA double helix. Extrapolations of this concept hold vast understandings for scientists able to transplant the pattern of this image into other contexts.
Rationalism separates things to understand them. Once you turn on the radio, you can pick them up. Infact, if straightened out the strands of DNA would look exactly like a rope ladder.
It is made up of three-dimensional images that coalesce into sound and that the shaman imitates by emitting corresponding melodies. Even the giant drugcompanies do not have the ability to develop products to meet barby requirements as quickly, easily – and naturally – as the Amazonian shamans can. The use of cosmic serpent symbolism is an extremely old method of portraying scientific relationships that cosmoca the universe.
Early in his work with the Ashaninca, Dr. This is what the Amazonians told Jeremy Narby about jeremg they know the properties of plants and how to combine them. Western knowledge considers hallucinations to be at best illusions, at worst morbid phenomena.
For ten years, Jeremy Narby explored Amazonian rain forests, the libraries of Europe, and some of the world’s most arcane scientific journals, following strange clues, unsuppressible lq, and extraordinary coincidences. He suggests that,once someone taps into their own DNA, it can then communicate acrossorganisms, across species – even across the boundary between animal and plant – and that the totality of all the DNA in the world forms a kind of matrix.
Extraordinary insights into mystical knowledge. The hunters needed something that, when smearedon the tips of blow-pipe darts, would not only kill an animal but alsoensure that it does not tighten its death-grip on a branch and die out ofreach as often happens with animals killed by arrows.
Therefore, in effect, curare was invented forty times. It is early days for the DNA theory, but, in our view, it has a lot going for it. It is knowledge that theydidn’t have before, useful knowledge which we cannot explain – and which is often more advanced than ours. We see what we believe, and not just the contrary; and to change what we see, it is sometimes necessary to change what we believe.
Perhaps this could explain phenomena such as telepathy and ESP. And the final result needs a specific piece of technology – the blow-pipe – to deliver it.
The spirits materialize when the shaman ingests tobacco and ayahuasca. But there are some 80, species of plants growing in the Amazon rain forest, so todiscover an effective remedy using just two of them would theoretically require the testing of every possible combination – just under four billion.
In other words, they are made of their own language, like DNA. Excellent description of symbolic patterns of the universe. His research propels him along a most intricate and twisted path, and one that will fascinate readers who appreciate science as well as those of us who read about spirituality and the occult. Modern science is sadly lacking in the methodology to understand criteria based upon qualities that go beyond the serpkente of quantitative analysis.

With his intelligent and refreshingly honest study of a classified ‘primitive’ culture along with the latest discoveries made jjeremy molecular biology, Dr. This is something that is happening rightnow, and there is no suggestion of visitors from lost continents or spaceships landing.
His book defines the purpose, and incredible power of DNA.
