Mushrooms And Mankind

( 2 )

Overview

For thousands of years on our planet, humanity has been involved in a symbiotic relationship with plants. Not only have plants supplied mankind with a never-ending food source, the necessary nourishment for our bodies, and life itself, but they have also served us in another way: an extremely important and intricate one, yet an often overlooked one. This book uncovers the natural link between man, consciousness, and God.

Overview

For thousands of years on our planet, humanity has been involved in a symbiotic relationship with plants. Not only have plants supplied mankind with a never-ending food source, the necessary nourishment for our bodies, and life itself, but they have also served us in another way: an extremely important and intricate one, yet an often overlooked one. This book uncovers the natural link between man, consciousness, and God.

This discovery may at first seem abstract, wishful thinking, or even impossible; yet as evidence presented on these pages unfolds, you may find that its understanding does not require as much of a leap of faith as you might think. It is a bold claim, but if the pioneering reseach in this book turns out to be true, this may be one of the most significant discoveries in the entire field of religious knowledge ever to happen in the history of mankind.

Should people use the knowledge found in this work, it would allow many on this planet to put their differences aside and join in the understanding that each and every one of us may now experience that which has been, until this time, hidden away in the recesses of our spiritual history. We may at last be able to open ourselves to an entirely new and valuable consciousness.

    Mushrooms and Mankind: The Impact of Mushrooms on Human Consciousness and Religion

    Keep an eye on this author as he's someday going to be great. The amount of concise and speculative information was fabulous. What then is the rub you ask? Well, while the intense research was evident I believe the presentation style and formation (structure) of the pages left a bit to be desired. Mr.Arthur has a penchant for suddenly hopping on a soapbox that struck me as somewhat pendantic ranting even though I agreed with him! Additionally, these rants had little to do with the subject matter and more directly related to his personal frustration with the powers that be, correct as they may be. In fact, it would appear he's got enough background in this area to base an entire other book. If you can put aside the author's angst during the few times it arises, you'll be left with a powerful and well documented piece of literature likely to lead you down many interesting paths. I would certainly purchase another writing as I feel confident in its factual basis and have the added bonus of seeing his writing style improve.

    Mushrooms and Mankind: The Impact of Mushrooms on Human Consciousness and Religion

    I rate this book 5*s exclusively based upon the information contained therein. The formatting could use some polishing and it would be nice to have a hardcover available (color pictures etc.) I did manage to find Arthurs website, which, much to my liking, has many of the same images in color. I have not seen as broad a look at the subject of Ethnomycology as far as the Amanita muscaria goes, either in contemporary writings or the classics, but I would like to see more information on Psilocybe sp. My only beef is I would like more. I hope this author has an aim to comment further in future works in regards to some of the subjects only briefly touched upon in this book. I also enjoy the writing style and will comment that sometimes things just need to be said no matter who doesnt agree with it. Arthur says a lot, about a lot, in this book.. This is a welcomed addition to my library and I find myself commenting on the book and showing it to my friends often. The seemingly unrelated areas tent to grow on you and understanding certain connections continues to dawn on me still. Also it is refreshing to see so many new ideas I have seen presented nowhere else. In a world becoming increasingly redundant and robotic I can foresee the ideas and Philosophical viewpoints contained in this book to be revolutionary!
