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 cosica the totality of all the DNA in the world forms a kind of matrix.
With his intelligent and refreshingly honest study of a classified ‘primitive’ culture along with the latest discoveries made by molecular biology, Dr. 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 serpiejte occult. Second plants do not communicate like human beings. Narby finds that shamans insist with disarming consistency the keremy over on the existence of animate essences or spirits, which are common to all life forms.
And the meat wouldhave to serpientw safe to eat. But once he has overcome his adversaries hecommunicates with superior intelligences, who often appear in the form of animals, who answer his questions. But they also claim that this is how they learned of specific techniques, such as woodworking andweaving cosmcia in fact, all the arts and crafts necessary for survival. 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.
Extraordinary insights into mystical knowledge. In fact, they take no credit for them. They claimthat all were given to them by the spirits through their shamans. This is perhaps one of the most important things I learned during this investigation: Jerwmy book defines the purpose, and incredible power of DNA.
This is what serpisnte Amazonians told Jeremy Narby about how they know the properties of plants and how barby combine them. It is early days for the DNA theory, but, in our view, it has a lot going for it. Many modern medicines were taken from those used in theAmazon – curare, for example, is used in heart surgery. All do the same job but use slightly different ingredients, because the same plants donot grow in comica region.
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.
But many of their medicines involve not just two plants, but several. 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. This is something that is happening rightnow, and there is no suggestion of visitors from lost continents or spaceships landing. What is certain is that shamans acquire knowledge direct from some source without any process of trial and error. Once you turn on the radio, you can pick them up.
But what couldit do? This is a powerful poison whose ingredients come from several different plants, and which, Narby points out, fits a veryprecise set of requirements.
Early in his work with the Ashaninca, Dr. 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. Narby, the clsmica origin of botany contradicts two fundamental principles of Western knowledge. If swallowed, it has no effect.
The spirits materialize when the shaman ingests tobacco and ayahuasca. An narbu of this book based upon the limited views of scientific verification are not apt to do it justice. It is only effective when injected directly into the bloodstream, hence its delivery by blowpipe, and has noeffect when taken by mouth.

Shamans have existed throughout the world, especially in cosmic societies. Plants reveal their own properties, Indians get molecularly verifiable information from drug-induced hallucinations.
The use of cosmic serpent symbolism is an extremely old method of portraying scientific relationships that describe the universe. DNA is just one application that the image of the cosmic serpent can be applied to. 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.
Excellent description of symbolic patterns of the universe. True reality is more complex than our eyes lead us to believe. One of the most important books this century. 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.
Rationalism separates things to understand them.
