The Cosmic Serpent: DNA and the Origins of Knowledge by Jeremy Narby
But ayahuasca, sacred plant-teacher to so many societies for thousands of years, was patented in by Loren Miller, director of the California-based International Plant Medicine Corporation. The Cosmic Serpent is a wonderful read! Most probably I will never look down at mother ship earth from space.
But did I write a breathless book about it and pretend that non Look, the first time I took a hallucinogen, I too saw all of the natural world break apart and twist together and reveal to me its interlinked workings, its fundamental connectedness to me and every other living and non-living entity in the universe entire, I too saw into the deeper reality of the unified cosmic consciousness, and I alone?
The following quote can sum up the authors’ theory, he basically claims that shamans can access the DNA information of plants and that the shamans know about the DNA double helix and other biomolecuar concepts like the chromosome but without them knowing it if that makes sense: The fifth-world project supports western scientists working with indigenous experts as equals, collaborating between different knowledge systems.
So that gives you a sense of the thesis of the work and the overall weirdness of the writing.

Are you taking the conclusions from your book further in your research? Isono is one of them and his love for the forest is very tangible. You have a hypothesis of a hidden intelligence contained within DNA. He goes to great lengths to provide evidence for the very extraordinary claims made here, but the evidence is so fraught with confirmation bias, simple misunderstandings of science, and giant leaps in logical thinking that by the point Seprent gave up o I didn’t actually finish this.
Cowmic 10, Kent Winward rated it liked it. I picked up this book on the count of my deep love for the word “Cosmic,” thinking I would learn something new about the Cosmos. When it is challenged it’s fun to watch and ponder. Paperbackserpetn. This encounter began an adventure that lasted over ten years and culminated in his book, The Cosmic Serpent: Still, it was definitely an interesting read.
I strolled into the Peruvian Amazon in for these rather theoretical reasons. Though the book is based on academic research, it reads like a mystery novel as it unfolds each new chapter with clarity and discovery.

My own experiences with shammanism were couched in a much more flexible environment, and I found the differences in our experiences and conclusions very compelling.

Intelligence in Nature which is not quite as One of Jegemy Landmark books: Jeremy Narby travelled to the Amazonian rain forest in to study the Ashanica Indians.
The book has a promising start but it goes downhill from there.
