scholar Alfred Rebelliau has drawn attention to a pamphlet published in 1609
entitled Le Mastigophore auauel Tout brisees les brides a veaux de maistre Ivvain
Solanicqiie, written by Antoine Fusy, a parish priest of Paris. In it he vituperated
against the warden of his church, Nicolas Vivian

distress, skin flushing, and percieved color distortions.
Injected doses of 16 mg (over 3 min. IV drip) have been reported.
At this dose, the symptoms of mild skin flushing to extreme
purple cast appear. Subjects also report a great deal of
psychological distress and fear at this dose. Doses of 8 mg
produce mild skin flushing and increased anxiety. Doses of 2-4
mg of bufotenine do not produce hallucinogenic effects. The above
discussed negative side effects at 16 mg last for approximately
10 minutes. Other side effects reported are sweating, nausea,
yellowed vision, and perception of colored spots. So it appears
that bufotenine is a nasty drug to be avoided, Not only does it
tend to induce panic, it also appears to have the
potential for a fatal overdose, although no case studies to this
effect have been found for humans.
Other DMT relatives exist, but are not of great
importance here. Some are, however, psychoactive.
DMT in the past has only been used by smoking or injecting.
Oral use was completely ineffective. It turns out that ancient
tribal cultures solved that problem aeons ago, and have been

dosing up the whole time. Now THAT'S technology. By combining
plants that contained MAOIs (monoamine oxidase inhibitors) and
other plants containing DMT, the DMT would become active orally.
MAOIs block the destruction of DMT in the digestive track and in
the brain. So, with MAOIs, DMT can be eaten and also becomes more
potent. MAOIs also increase the potency of smoked DMT. The effect
of the orally administered DMT with MOAI lengthens in time and
decreases in intensity. Typical plateau period is 10-40 minutes,
after a hour delay with low buzz for an hour after the plateau.
Great for people who don't like the time investment of most
MAOIs are reported to work for psilocybin ('shrooms) and
mescaline. Subjective reports are that MAOIs double their
potency. I hypothesize that it will also potentiate lysergic acid
(woodrose and morning-glories). The effect of MAOIs on LSD
appears debated in the literature. Some report no effect, others
report significant potentiation. Some have very enthusiastically
insisted that MAOIs double or triple the potency of LSD.
The ancient solution mentioned above is the ayahuasca
potion. This potion has been produced, in one form and name or
another, throughout Central America and South America for quite
some time. The most commonly referred to potion is made by
combining ayahuasca, a jungle vine, and yopo, leaves from a small
bush. The ayahuasca provides the MAOIs and the yopo provides DMT.
Occasional, mescaline bearing cacti are added. The potion was
usually used ceremonial for healing, divining, and t uth-central

yellow-green, soft, ribless and contains a somewhat different alkaloid mixture
with far less mescaline that L. williamsi.
About half an hour after ingesting the buttons the first effects are felt. There is a
feeling of strange intoxication and shifting consciousness with minor perceptual
changes. There may also be strong physical effects, including respiratory
pressure, muscle tension (especially face and neck muscles), and queasiness or
possible nausea. Any unpleasant sensations should disappear within an hour.
After this the state of altered consciousness begins to manifest itself. The
experience may vary with the individual, but among the possible occurences are
feelings of inner tranquillity, oneness with life, heightened awareness, and rapid
thought flow. During the next several hours these effects will deepen and
become more visual. Colors may become more intense. Halos and auras may
appear about things. Objects may seem larger, smaller , closer or more distant
than they actually are. Often persons will notice little or no changes in visual
perception while beholding the world about them, but upon closing their eyes
they will see on their mind-screen wildly colorful and constant changing patterns.
After several more hours the intensity of the experience gradually relaxes.
Thought becomes less rapid and diffuse and more ordered. In the Navajo peyote
ritual this change of thought flow is used wisely. During the first part of the
ceremony the participants submit to the feeling and let the peyote teach them.
During the latter part of the ritual the mind turns to thoughtful contemplation and
understanding with the conscious intellect what the peyote has taught the
The entire experience may last from 6 to 12 hours depending upon the individual
and the amount of the plant consumed. After all the peyote effects have passed
there is no comedown. One is likely to feel pleasantly relaxed and much a peace
with the world. Although there is usually no desire for food during the experience
one would probably have a wholesome appetite afterwards.
METHODS OF USE
The most common method of use is simply to chew up and swallow the fresh or
dried buttons after removing the tufts and sand. This is the way it is almost
always done at Indian ceremonies. Most people find the taste of this cactus
unbearably bitter. The Indians, however, feel if ones heart is pure, the bitterness
will not be tasted. Many have found that by not cringing from the taste, but rather
letting ones senses plunge directly to the center of the bitterness, a sort of
seperation from the offensive flavor is experienced. One is aware of the
bitterness, but it no longer disturbs him. This is similar to the practice of bringing
ones consciousness to the center of pain so that detachment may occur. It is not
a difficult trick, but it takes som
