Read The Long Trip A Prehistory of Psychedelia ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free review The Long Trip A Prehistory of Psychedelia O look at the use of mind altering drugs or entheogens for ritual and shamanistic purposes throughout humanity's long story while casting withering sidelong glances at our own times as Paul Devereux points out our modern mainstream culture is eccentric in its refusal to integrate the profound experien. For the images associated with this review my recent trip to the American Southwest I was thrilled to learn of the prevalence petroglyphs held in the region Here was an opportunity to see into the actual minds of the humans that forged the original path for our species many generations agoWhen I found my first set of petroglyphs at Dinosaur National Monument in Utah music from the 1960s Planet of the Apes movie filled my head as I envisioned my predecessors carving out these images on these rugged hills I could see with cinematic production uality the frantic artist these images did not strike me as the work of a reserved and slow artisan but of someone that struggled to express either something that was important or something that heshe could not describe to the othersWhat surprised me about the petroglyphs were their relation to the content of Paul Devereux s The Long Trip Deveraux describes in The Long Trip the evidence of the relationship between humanity and visionary plants The details provided in The Long Trip of the visions induced by these ancient rituals matched my observations of these petroglyphs exactly On p 164 of the 2nd edition published 2008 by Daily Grail Publishing a useful chart shows the three stages of entoptic and visual phenomena from the cultures of three separate continents Fig 1131 below isn t as neatly laid out as the one in The Long Trip but demonstrates a similar concept relating entoptic phenomena to cave art making the case that ancient art is often depictions of visions of these trance statesThe rock art at Dinosaur National Park corresponded all the stages of trance that Devereux summarized including spirals basic entoptic phenomena and transformation into animals one of the final stages of trance states The picture below appears to depict a shaman s transformation from lizard into human formPetroglyphs aside one major aim Paul Devereaux had for writing The Long Tail was to demonstrate that modern civilization is a grand exception to the history of humanity because we do not have a ritualized context for accessing visionary states Even recent civilizations in Greece had the socially accepted Mysteries of Eleusis Since Aldous Huxley and Humphrey Osmond coined the modern term for these visionary substances as psychedelics the associated plants and visionary tools have become stereotyped and abused before being outlawed by the United States with many other nations following suit Devereux looks to make a case for their integration into our societyDevereux begins by laying a groundwork for the modern context of these visionary experiences The modern era of visionary substances began when Dr Albert Hoffman synthesized lysergic acid diethylamide 25 LSD These experiences connected with the past when explorer Gordon Wasson sent morning glory seeds to Hoffman in 1959 These morning glory seeds of the R corymbosa and I violacea were used in ancient rituals throughout Mexico Hoffman discovered that the seeds contained the indole compounds related to LSD lysergic acid amine the same as LSD but about 10 20x less potentAnthropologist Andrew Sherrat s model of ancient intoxication is that the inhalation of fumes preceded the drinking complex and was the most ancient method of taking in aromatic and psychoactive substances And throughout ancient life smoked opium and cannabis sativa were prevalent Moderns can know this through analysis of through Herodotus descriptions of Scythian Kapnobatai shamans howling with pleasure during their rituals with cannabis Old World Europeans encountered smoking only when they reach the New World and witnessed natives smoking tobacco However in the ancient world liuid psychoactives were also available Cypriot pots shaped like opium buds where opium was prepared in an olive oil mixture have been found as far back as 1550 1337BC in Egypt Conseuently prehistoric opium and hemp seeds and pollens have been found around the globe A Neanderthal man was even found in northern Ira with Horsetail pollen Ephedra the source of the nerve stimulant ephedrineThe accounts of ancient drug use that most greatly differ from our modern culture are the descriptions of the Amanita muscaria This mushroom known as the fly agaric is the stereotypical toadstool A red cap with white dots all over it the eating of which is noted to produce euphoria and later hallucinations after inducing extreme physical strength and endurance From p 82 of the book A Russian anthropologist Valdimir Bogoras observed a Chukchi tribesman take off his snowshoes after eating some of the mushroom and deliberately walk for hours through the deep snow just for the sheet pleasure of conducting exercise which caused no sense of fatigue Event the reindeer craved this mushroom passing these effects on to those that at their meat Since the active constituents of the A Muscaria remain intact when passed through a person s bladder the reindeer will swarm down men that urinate in the open Fellow tribesmen would collect this urine and use it to attract the reindeer or to drink at a later time to obtain the desired effectsOne mystery surrounding these visionary substances is in their geographic location In late 1970 anthropologist Richard Evans Shultes wrote only about 150 of the world s flora are known to be employed for their hallucinatory properties nearly 130 species are known to be used in the Western Hemisphere whereas in the Eastern Hemisphere the number hardly reaches 20 South America is filled with various snuffs brews and plants that produce hallucinogenic effects like ayahausca the world s most ancient example of a designer drug combining an MAO inhibitor in B cappi and many various admixtures many of which contain the potent naturally ubiuitous dimethlytryptamineI found the details that Devereux presented on the psychedelic s influence on myth to be the most interesting portion of the book One example is of Richard Rudgley s suggestion that the middle eastern psychedelic syrian rue contributed the designs to the carpets before propelling its users into flights of ecstacy the flying carpet myth incarnate The myth of Santa Claus may have derived from use of the Amanita Muscaria the red and white colors of the mushroom the idea of Santa clambering down the chimney like the entry of smoke into the Siberan yurts during the winter the reindeer pulling the sleigh reminiscent of the animal s connection with the substance and the flight through the sky the description of the basic shamanic experience of leaving the body traveling through the air My primary interest in psychedelics lies around their relations to ancient religious experience such as in Zoroastrianism and early Christianity an example being in the taking of the Eucharist This book didn t deal heavily in these issues with only with a few mentions of Zoroastrianism So in that sense it left me a little disappointed but that s why I ll need to read Jan Irvin s Holy Mushroom a good follow up to this bookAn excellent history of humanity s tendency to intoxicate with pharmacological plants and to seek visionary experience The Long Trip was deep with rich information a strong section of notes and references This book is filled with interesting tidbits that may have escaped those deeply interested in the field but provides an incredible gateway for those with cursory experience In a non threatening way Paul Devereux succeeds in providing the general public an introduction to our ancestors and their use of ritual hallucinogens
