`LSD helps against one of the most elemental problems of our times.
We’ve dis-connected from nature and lost the feeling of beeing a part of the living creation.`

THE MAGICAL FRUIT FROM TREE OF LIFE

a sacred technology – in the cause of time

verfasst durch Boris Hie├čerer (Pyromania Arts Foundation & Doors Of Perception Ethic Committee)


At the beginning of ancient cultures existed a female creational force, the `Great Goddess`. The godhead was creation and the creation was female. The `Great Goddess` embodyfied the rebirthing, the living & dying, the light & dark, the beauty & horrible of the world & the cosmos. All extensive/unlimited and nameless was the ancient goddess of the old religion, then she became the Sumerian Inannah, the Babylonian Ishtar, the Egyptian Isis, the Roman Ceres, the greek Gaia, Demeter & Persephone in the `Great Mysteries` of Eleusis, the christian Mary, the corn crop Madonna and the rye-wolf (Roggenmuhme) in German folklore. She was alls & everything was she. In mythology she was pandrogyn and gave birth to the world of the gods and the humans, who we are a soul spark of herself.
`She`s reborn rich the honorable Queen, most call her with her daughters name, who multiplicates, birthing uncountable children, beeing unspeakable pure and clean.`
Alchemist Mothercorn Hymne

Because she, the great ancient mother (Lillith, Eve, Sophia, Core, Persephone) once broke a branch from the tree of life, its magickal fruit could survive until the present day. The condemnation of all cults opposing the catholic doctrine forced the gnostic knowledge of the magical fruit together with it`s holeness revealing qualities underground, where it`s true identity has been disquised with uncountable names: Dragon, snake cup, blossom of life, virgins milk, paradise water, gods teardrop, Ambrosia, drink or food of the gods, paradise apple, honeydew, Aqua Solvens, grail, Karfunkel stone, Hermaphrodit, Rebis, round body from the mids, drinkable gold or light (aurum), living source, water of wisdom, Aqua Coelestis, Queen of all honour, tincture, elixier, panacea, blood of the redeemer, holy child, bread and body of the lord, manna, Soma, Kykeon, St. Peters snow, mothercorn, LSD-25, Acid…


During the past ages man had discovered the healing and destroying forces of the plant kingdom on his long path into humanity. The retired Swisse chemist and natural philosopher Dr. Albert Hofmann, repeatetly said also: `The plant is the base for the religious experience of man.` As indigenous people our ancesters knew about the secrets of the `Philosophers Stone`, who as an organic, sacred substance, was able to open up a communication channel for real time transmission between the human soul and the worldsoul of the mothership planet earth. The shamanic, magical, gnostic & psychotherapeutical tradition of the templers and alchemists knew how to use the `water beaten out of the stone`wisely. As a life elixier ist embodlfied the secret of a holy technology of selftransformation, during wich time & place flow into each other like virginsmilk & honeydew, all roads meet, lead turns into gold and sleeping human animals awake into god.

In sight of this revelation, it seems as if we are the naive! Probably we`ve assumed to early, to have understood all there is to know about matter. But5 untill the present day we cant tell where our feelings nor our soul is located. It seems as if the Witches and alchemists, through their humbleness, gained deeper insights into the workings of the world, as we humans of the technological age have archieved today. The psychedelic shamanism of many indigenous tribes is founded on those insights into creation and self. With the globalisation of `MediaShamanis` the psychedelic research community has expanded the term `Technology` into the plant knowledge and the archaic techniques of exstasy. The protection of these tribal cultures, threatened by genozide, and the preservation of old knowlede is, as well up on the modern conciousness movements agenda as the aim to accept psychedelics as a cultural heritage of mankind.

Psychotherapist C. G. Jung recognized a complex system of systematic psycho-spiritual transformation. For the high work `Opus Magnum` a dance of imagination had to be generated, in wich the chemical processes in the test tubes got reflected in the psychological complexes within the alchemist. On their search for the world-code, true magicians, alchemists and scientists, as well as visionary mystics the `holy` in the own seemen and in the plant seeds, the own woman in the earth, the own life`s rythm of birth, death & resurrection in the own lifes cycle, the own blood vessels as the veins and rivers on land, the heavenly cosm as microcosm within the own body. This organic, holistic world view is expressed by the – seemingly also into the mysteries initiated historical Jesus of Nazareth. `The drain that falls to the earth and does not die will stay lonely – but if it dies it bring uncountable fruits`, he spoke and revealed with this the central core of the `great ancient mystery cults`: `Die and be reborn!`



To gain this experience for more than 2.000 years, men and women, rich and poor went from Athens on a pilgrimage to the temple of Eleusis, where the `Great Mysteries` wer celebrated every autumn. In the `Telesterion` the giant hall of initiation, 3.000 initiants, called `neophyts` could have strong psycho-spirutual transformative experiences at the same time. In the meantime the chemical and pharmacological nature of the `Kykeon` got decoded. It`s secret was not based on Robert Ranke Grave`s and Terence McKenna`s `Psylocibe` mushrooms, but on the parasite mushroom growing on infected Rye (mother-corn) `Claviceps Purpurea` which the Hofmann-Ruck-Wasson theory had allready guessed to be the psychoactive ingredient.

The cultural meaning of these mysteries and it`s not enough ??? role in the civilisation of Europe becomes clear by different wellknown initiants. Platon, Aristoteles, Alkibiades, Epiktet, Pindar a.o. poets and thinkers of the antique praised their tranformative Eleusis-experiences in hymns. Homer writes: `blissfull is amoung the humans on earth, who has seen this. Who is not initiated in the holy mysteries, who has`nt seen this remains a dull , who did not participate in it, remains a dead in dull darkness.` And the roman statesman Cicero mentioned to Eleusis: `Not only have we received the reason there to live in joy, but also that we may die with better hope.` As Dr. Hofmann, Wasson & Ruck could proove, the `Kykeon`, a psychoactive `ambrosia` administered and served in the millions until the christian gothic king Alarich destroyed the temple of Eleusis 395 AD.

`At least the forbidden fruits were eaten and thereby the warm reason of life concealed. A grain of wheat eclipses the sun of Adam,
just as the dragons tail dulls the brightness of the moon.` Rumi Masnavi I Ma`navi

(dervish order of Mevlana)

And yet, the most holy should have survived. treated as a treasure shrouded in mystery it returned back to Europe, along with the Templers and knights of the big crusade. So apart from the `Resurrection Rose of Jericho` and the cult of the `Great Goddess` the story of a godly meal, the `life giving Grail` or `Philosophical Stone` spread across Europe. Here the most important astrologers and alchemists Agrippa von Nettesheim, Galileo Galilei, Nicolas Flamel & Nikolaus Kopernikus maintain to know about the future and would posess the `Philosophers Stone` and the `Elixier of life`. Manyfold where the searchers who tryd to destill the `eternal live giving lifes elixier` from the philosophical stone and to read within the `Akasha`; the book of life. In the mids of hsis posessive transformation of metalls, the Basel doctor and medicus Paracelsus pushed foreward the enterprise of pharmacy. And John Dee, adviser of the queen Elisabeth of England has held daemonic rituals, toxified himself and called on the forces of angels. In their search for the worlds code, these archaic scientists paved the way into our modern global telecommunication technology.

„Repeatedly alchemists have said that the stone was a physical experience and that he would be physical as well as spiritual, what seems to be a well discription of an entheogenic substance.`

The midwife knew about the birth supporting qualities of the `Ergot` (claviceps purpurea) and how to use it as a medcine. The women of destiny or herbal women, once called herbaria became wellknown as haagze and later hagezusse or hexe (witch) in german Folklore. With the conversation to christianity the former grain-goddess turned into a grain-wolf. With her elementals, the ferries, dwarfs and elves the `Great Mother` of the old religion was daemonized and her place was overtaken by her younger sun, the solar god. Banned from her traditional place within the holy trinity, her spirit and blood lineage was heavily decimated during the witch hunts unfolding over centuries. Nowadays that we can realize which vast treasure of collective plant knowledge was lost under the christian pedantry, we have to show ourselfes responsible to save this gnostic tradition of the indigenous cultures and to re-establish it within our global civilisation. Our stagnated materialistic worldview is waiting, to update by a holistic living cosmology.

In the light of this planetary plant intelligence the words that Jesus said duringng the last supper have to be re-interpreted, when he spekas: II am the bread of life, this is the bread that came from heaven, so that whom eats of it, will never die…, whom eats of this bread will life for eternity.` The `Bread that you break with friends` ant which the son of god called his flesh, seemes to be – contrary to former assumtions not a pure symbolic – but embobified through a functional sacrament. The heavenly bread enabled his disciples to get close to the experience of `Unio Mytica` – myself and the creation are one. The bread of the middle ages, contaminated up to 70 % and containing certain amounts of `Ergot` lead to simular experiences for hundret thousand of ergotism-plague victims. In the mids the `mothercorn-epedemics, appearing in Russia, Scandinavia and Germany caused by ergot-infected flour and bread during the hunger periods of the 30-year old war the mystic Angelus Silenius writes this experience of singularity:

„The bread, the lord in us acts as the philosophers stone, it turnes us into gold, where we are melded. Then lead turns into gold, coincidence fades away, when I am unified with god by god.`
Angelus Silenius, mystic 1627-1677

The tradition of selfintoxication reaches far back to the roots of human culture, as the magical copper kettle witch craft of the druids proove. In April 1943 a room opened up fo the western `civilisation`, which was known to socalled primitive cultures since thousands of years. With the invention of LSD-25 the modern man discovered that a particle of matter was able to change our conciousness fundamentally. Gottfried Benn termed this revelation, after his LSD trip with Albert Hofmann in his house on the Riggimatte` with the words: `God is a substance, a drug.` Who wonderes that the cartoon animation company Terry Toones, did let her cartoon character

`Mighty Mouse` experience hallucinations in his fight against the ergot three xeary before Dr. Hofmann discovered the psychoactive qualities in the 25th synthesis of his Lsyergis Acid Diethylamide. And that the character in Leo Peruz`s novel `St. Petri Schnee` (St. Peters Snow) extracts a psychoaktive, watery solution from the `Mothercorn` Ergot-Mushroom, allready five years before dr. Albert Hofmann should synthesize the LSD and ten years before LSD turned out to be so strongly psychoactive. These and othe facts indicate the question how far the `Ergot` Mushroom or better it`s in the human psyche psychoactive molecule is responsible for our occidental image of god and our religious believes.

`If anything is destinated to carry itself through time into eternity, it is probably an eternity revealing chemical formula, a substance, a molecule.`

Up until the sixties neither the spiritual nor the psychedelic experience could be linked with the shamanism, untill the english bankman Gordon Wasson discovered the `holy mushrooms` of the mazatec shaman woman `Maria Sabina` and Dr. Hofmann synthesized the psychoactive compound `Psylicibin` (1957) from them. As the worlds famoust chemist continued to dind out that Lysergic Acids exists in higher plants as the `Ololiqui` (1959) and hawaiian `Baby Wood rode` (1963) and that the `Kykeon` drink at the center of the `great Mysteries` of Eleusis contained alkaloids familiar to LSD, his discoveries pushed the doors to shamanism and the religious roots of mankind wide open.

But just as Albert Hofmann would have rejected any order to invent such a psychoactive potent chemical agent, the concious research movement does not view it as it`s job, to bow further than the collected facts, represented in this DVD Set. It is the job of advanced scientists to uncover the story around the `mothercorn- and cornmother-cult` at the foundations of our own culture.

`Let go of the flower, do`nt go into the corn, the ryemother goes around and round, soon she ducks, then she looks again: she`ll catch the children reaching out for the flowers.`
August Kopisch 1799-1853

The ancient nature- and vegetation goddesses have been made responsible for many discoveries and quantum leaps of mankind. Als `nisabah` and as grain carriieng Demeter she was honoured as the transmitter of writing and agriculture. Also Steve Jobbs and Steve Wosniak, the two developers of the first personal computer `Apple` 1, today known as Mac saw the design of their electronic circuits during one of their LSD trips. Yes, the modern achievement of the electronical revolution is founded on contents of conciousness transmitted by LSD-25 – only who honoures the planetary intelligence `Gaia` for this?

Convinced of the existence of such a higher octaved intelligence the blessed scientist Dr. Hofmann, our elder and mentor, recognizes the big aim of science to be receiver and to recognize life as it is: infinite & wonderfull. After his LSD experience he understood that `that what we call `the realiy` in a reasonable sense is nothing static but more meaning and not to classify. On LSD I experienced another reality and until then I had thought there is only this one `true` reality. Now I began to understand that other dimensions of reality do exist.`

LSD has revealed that the commonly accepted consens-reality is no fixed size. `Objectively existing is only matter and energy, everything else is subjective. Reality appears within each human,` so Dr. Hofmann: This makes clear what went along with the psychedelic experience. It questions the materialistic world perception! This change of reality is the most fundamental transformation for us planetary citizens, that went along with the psychedelic experience. What Albert Hofmann and his problem- and wonderchild have to reveal is simular to what Albert Einstein did with Isaac Newton. The shift from an absolute to a relative reality!

Ps: We do not want to promote the consume of psychedelics as party drug (as in the 1960’s and 70’s). For good reasons the usage of psychoactive substances in `primitive` cultures took place within a ritual context. While the use of psychedelics need intensive preparation an a experienced guidance, the repressive drug policy has prevented to develope a respectfull handling of the psychedelics until now.

The Global Community can and will not the old paradigm of what`s right and what`s wrong. It is on us to find answers to the question what we – as global citizens – will allow ourselfes to experience in future. In theis process of awakening awareness the wonder child LSD-25 (and it`s plant cousins) once went onto the long pathway to be recognized and even legalized for therapeutical treatment of addiction and as a philosophical tool. This first edition of the 2DVD-Set `The Philosophers Stone` is a contribution towards this goal.

In the name of all individuals, groups and tribes turned towards creation worlwide, we give thanks to the pioneer of conciousness research Dr. Albert Hofmann for his 102’nd birthday.

The `Doors Of Perception Ethic Committee` was founded 2003 in Heidelberg. Dedicated to the work on the social plastic and in support of a circle of researchers, artists and scientists, DOPEC opens up new perspectives through the fusion of art, science and philosophy. DOPEC`s central model and most important tool, the `mediaSahamanism` can be understood as a model of practical 21’st century magic, in which DOPECS multi-art-divisions use new media – opposing their commo, manipulative usage – as a powerfull tool for reality design and the manifestation of utopean concepts, tranformation and healing.

The `Archaic Techniques Of Exstasy` are the subtitel of Mircea Eliade`s world bestseller on religious `Shamanism`.
