The HOB – CANNOPY – MAR#2018 –
Dude, … It’s not a Cult, it’s a Science!
Of all things, what We, Human do not see don’t exist. At least not in the Vertebrate state of perception We live Life. Yet, as it is today on Earth, most Human‘s await for a revelation in a form or another, vaguely referring to Higher Spiritual states but mostly unknown to all.
Often, reality may allow us Visions or hallucinations, but likely for most Human of Earth, rarely the Vision or hallucination is the quest, to the contrary, anchored in the perceivable reality of Our World We program and design very sophisticated mechanism to stay at full grip attach to what We perceive as conscious reality.
Between believe and research, the HOB CANNOPY invites you to the very ceremonial and highly Philosophical realm of the Mushroom.
EXTRACT //Some studies of Allegro’s work have given new purported evidence and led to calls for his theories to be re-evaluated by the mainstream. In November 2009 The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross was reprinted in a 40th anniversary edition with 30-page addendum by Prof. Carl A. P. Ruck of Boston University. A more articulate exposition of Allegro’s insights into early Christianity and his discoveries studying the Dead Sea Scrolls was published in his 1979 book The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Christian Myth.// here
Psychedelic mushrooms likely developed their “magical” properties to trip up fungi-munching insects, suggests new research.
The work helps explain a biological mystery and could open scientific doors to studies of novel treatments for neurological disease, said lead researcher Jason Slot, an assistant professor of fungal evolutionary genomics at The Ohio State University.
Mushrooms that contain the brain-altering compound psilocybin vary widely in terms of their biological lineage and, on the surface, don’t appear to have a whole lot in common, he said.
From an evolutionary biology perspective, that is intriguing and points to a phenomenon in which genetic material hops from one species to another – a process called horizontal gene transfer, Slot said. When it happens in nature, it’s typically in response to stressors or opportunities in the environment…//continue here …
– Horizontal gene cluster transfer increased hallucinogenic mushroom diversity.
Secondary metabolites are a heterogeneous class of chemicals that often mediate interactions between species. The tryptophan-derived secondary metabolite, psilocin, is a serotonin receptor agonist that induces altered states of consciousness. A phylogenetically disjunct group of mushroom-forming fungi in the Agaricales produce the psilocin prodrug, psilocybin. Spotty phylogenetic distributions of fungal compounds are sometimes explained by horizontal transfer of metabolic gene clusters among unrelated fungi with overlapping niches. We report the discovery of a psilocybin gene cluster in three hallucinogenic mushroom genomes, and evidence for its horizontal transfer between fungal lineages. Patterns of gene distribution and transmission suggest that synthesis of psilocybin may have provided a fitness advantage in the dung and late wood-decay fungal niches, which may serve as reservoirs of fungal indole-based metabolites that alter behavior of mycophagous and wood-eating invertebrates. These hallucinogenic mushroom genomes will serve as models in neurochemical ecology, advancing the (bio)prospecting and synthetic biology of novel neuropharmaceuticals… here
