Pure, Natural Coca Leaf – A Healing Gift Of The Divine Plant

God’s Brain

1 Comment

Whether your frame of reference is the stern and vengeful God of the Abrahamic religions, or the loving and nurturing God of the Nature-centered religions, almost all of Man’s spiritual visions have at their center a God with consciousness.

Equally, whether their religion envisioned a male figure dominating the earth from his place in the sky, or a mother/father spirit that inhabits all living creatures as well as the living Earth, most humans conceive of their own consciousness as arising from some organic source, most often “inside” themselves.

Since the beginnings of recorded time, people have also attempted to create images of God – with some notable exceptions like Islam. These images have taken every imaginable form, from the concrete to the abstract.

Like many others, I have often thought about and wondered over the question of cosmic consciousness. In recent years, with the development of technology that enables us to envision the human brain at the most intricate, detailed levels, many people have looked at the brain’s neural network and then looked up at the universe of stars and galaxies and wondered at the apparent similarities.

So without further introduction I would simply like to say that I recently came across a set of images and a short (4 minute) video that completely blew me away and I want to share it with you and the other readers of this blog. The video is at the bottom of the web page linked to above, and I suggest that you get yourself in a receptive state of mind and then go directly to the video, saving the still images and the written description of how the images were created for afterwards.

I love creating, testing, and launching new ideas that work and that make a positive contribution to other peoples' lives. I love breaking trails and discovering hidden or new pathways, new ways of looking at special parts of the world, and most of all I love sharing what I find with others. I wrote the first Cannabis grow book “The Cultivators Handbook of Marijuana” in 1969. Cultivators has sold over 6 million copies worldwide & is still in print in 2016. I'm very happy to have been a part of the beginning of what is now a true revolution. I created The Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company in the early 1980's and invented the American Spirit™ brand. My hope is that many people who chose the organic tobacco alternative have enjoyed smoking a more natural product and been healthier because of it. I wrote the first Cannabis extraction/medical edibles book “Marijuana Foods” in the early 1980's. While Cannabis extracts for medicinal use go back thousands of years, many people in my generation had not even heard of Cannabis butter. I was happy to share what I discovered through research and experimentation. I wrote the first organic Tobacco grow book “The Cultivators Handbook of Natural Tobacco”. I know that in some parts of the country, growers are selling organic tobacco at farmers markets, and I still have hope that a networked collaborative industry can be organized as an alternative to the so-called "Tobacco Industry". I helped thousands of people to be better cross-cultural business communicators with the “International Straight Talk” video/CBT series in the 1990's. If you have the patience for some very old-style talking heads videos they are all digitized and online. A lot of culturally-astute people appear in these videos sharing valuable information. I re-introduced Coca Leaf to the natural medicines dialogue with “Panacea Chronicles” and “The Coca Leaf Papers” in 2010 – 2012. This is a digitized collection of core books on Coca from the 18th and 19th centuries, with a hyperlinked bibliography. I created this resource so that people could connect with Coca's relevance to core health issues in today's world through understanding its historical context. I just finished (2016) developing a market-disrupting line of Cannabis products for “Landrace Brands™”. I figured there was no reason a company run by people I care about to be just another me-too Cannabis industry startup, so we came up with a few surprises. I enjoyed this process and would like to do the same for other Cannabis market companies run by good people. I am currently researching and writing "Cannabis For Seniors: A Caregivers Handbook" to be published in 2017. I welcome your ideas for topics, and stories about how Cannabis has made a difference in your own life or in the life of someone you love. I am always looking for interesting new challenges. Is there anything that we should be discussing?

One thought on “God’s Brain

  1. You mentioned the question of cosmic consciousness. I believe that all things have will and awareness. But the “biggest god conceivable” – the universe – would be vastly different in expression and nature of will and awareness, as compared with our animal kingdom ways. So I defer avoid viewing such lifeforms as represented by a human analogy, limiting what I would venture to guess about those galactic lifeforms. I enjoyed this post!
