Modern science is sadly lacking in the methodology to understand criteria based upon qualities that go beyond the abilities of quantitative analysis. But he also is no naive new-age enthusiast. It is early days for the DNA theory, but, in our view, it has a lot going for it. The classic example is curare. Sencillamente, hay que ser un pionero, un arriesgado explorador y, en definitiva, ir por delante del resto.

We must stress that the Amazonians’ knowledge of pharmacology plant-derived drugs and their potential and actual uses is not just surprising for whatare considered primitive peoples, but actually exceeds that of modernWestern science. It is made up of three-dimensional images that coalesce into sound and that the shaman imitates by emitting corresponding melodies.

Extraordinary insights into mystical knowledge. Western knowledge considers hallucinations to be at best illusions, at worst morbid phenomena. Amazon Music Transmite millones de canciones. In this book, Jeremy Narby does an excellent job of navigating the tricky terrain between subjective experience in experimenting with the spiritual and offering an anthropological analysis of the culture he set out to investigate.

Jeremy Narby’s study of shamanic knowledge and DNA is a fascinating and easy to follow discussion of his experience as a Western trained anthropologist gradually learning to see outside the narrow tunnel of his conditioning. Cant recommended enough, though, only for people who want to research really new ideas, and are open to entertain very different mind blowing concepts. Much of what he says is a direct critique of science and the blinders inherent to its Western formand he obviously gives more respect and credence to the methodologies and conclusions of the Amazonian shamans than fosmica is willing and able to.


It is only effective when injected directly into the bloodstream, hence its delivery by blowpipe, and has noeffect when taken by mouth.


Perhaps this could explain phenomena such as telepathy and ESP. His book defines the purpose, and incredible power of DNA.

Reprint 5 de abril de Vendido por: The problem becomes even more baffling, because no fewer than forty different types of curare are used coskica the Amazon rain forest. 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.

With his intelligent and refreshingly honest study of a classified ‘primitive’ culture along with the latest discoveries made by molecular biology, Dr.

Food Of The Gods: One of the most important books this century. Excellent description of symbolic patterns of the universe. Extrapolations of this concept hold vast understandings for scientists able to transplant the pattern of this image into other contexts.

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. So how dothey claim to have discovered curare – and all the other plants-derivedsubstances that they use? No activado Word Wise: This is what the Amazonians told Jeremy Narby about how they know the properties of plants and how to combine them.


Rationalism separates things to understand them. In a first-person narrative of scientific discovery that opens new perspectives on biology, anthropology, and the limits of rationalism, The Cosmic Serpent reveals how startlingly different the world around us appears when we open our minds to it.

The interpreter, Carlos, referred to invisible beings, called maninkari, who are found in animals, plants, mountains, streams, lakes, and certain crystals, and who are sources of knowledge.

It seems like a very tall order – but curare fitsall these requirements perfectly.

Ifthey had found their recipes by experimentation, it would have takenmillions of years to find just a few, and yet they have a vast range of medicines and other useful substances. And the final result needs a specific piece of technology – the blow-pipe – to deliver it.

But they also claim that this is how they learned of specific techniques, such as woodworking andweaving – in fact, all the arts and serpienge necessary for survival. 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.

The hunters needed something that, when smearedon the tips of blow-pipe darts, would cosmiac 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. Vuelva a intentarlo en otro momento. Magicians of the Gods: Narby, the hallucinatory origin of botany contradicts two fundamental principles of Western knowledge.

Incredible book, loved it.
