top of the dirt until the following
spring. Then, when warm weather returns, the kernel of ergot sprouts
off a bunch of tiny growths that look for all the world like so many
minute mushrooms. In the head of each of these little mushroom
growths are millions of spores. These spores are the fungus equivalent of
When the mushroom growths have reached a length of about 20
mm, they are mature, and the head of the mushroom explodes,
sending the millions of spores floating through the air. These spores,
either by luck of air currents or by hitching a ride upon insects, find
their way into the flower of the rye plants growing nearby. The flower of
the rye plant is nothing spectacular. Rye is a grass, and its flowers look
like most other grass flowers — just a filamentaceous dab of color
scattered over the head of the plant which soon grows into seeds.
Upon being deposited into the flower of the rye plant, the spore
germinates and takes over the flower. The fungus then grows by
sucking nutrients out of the rye plant, until a new kernel of ergot has
been formed to repeat the process again next year.
The biological sciences are made to order to take the hit-and-miss
aspect out of the process of rye flower infestation. Instead of the
random action of air currents or insects to bring spores into contact
with their new home, one may germinate these spores in a sterile
culture medium, grow them until they have multiplied a million-fold,
then spray them onto the rye plants just as they are blooming to ensure a
heavy infestation with ergot. This method has been in use since the
1920s with great success in the commercial production of ergot. See
the reference by Hecke (pages 1921-1922) in the back of the Ergot
and Ergotism book mentioned above for complete experimental
details. Yields of ergot using this method average a few hundred
pounds per acre. A couple of acres could supply most of the United
States with high-grade acid.

To put this plan into action, the few dozen kernels of ergot are kept
cool and dry during the winter, then as spring approaches they are made
ready to germinate by putting them in the refrigerator for one month to
six weeks with the temperature held steady from just above freezing to
3° C. This will make the ergot think that it has gone through winter, and
works better than actually freezing the stuff. Without this treatment, the
ergot will not germinate to form the mushroom stage of its life cycle.
After our artificial winter has passed for the ergot, we must make it
think that it is at home in the dirt. To do this, a terrarium is thoroughly
cleaned out with bleach water and several rinses. Then a layer of clean
sand about an inch thick is put in the bottom of the terrarium, and the
ergot is sprinkled on top of the sand. Finally, a little more sand is
sprinkled over the top of the ergot until they are each just covered up.
The terrarium is kept at room tem ur

AYAHUASCA AND CHACRUNA
This painting represents the two plants necessary in preparing the ayahuasca brew.
Out of the ayahuasca vine comes a black snake with yellow, orange, and blue
spots, surrounded by a yellow aura. There is also another snake, the chacruna
snake, of bright and luminous colors. From its mouth comes a violet radiation
surrounded by blue rays. The chacruna snake penetrates the ayahuasca snake,
producing the visionary effect of these two magic plants.
To the left we see the teacher and his disciples covered by the radiation of the
ayahuasca and chacruna plants. The effect on the nervous system is felt in the tip
of the toes and fingers, in the ears, lips, eyes, and nose. This is why those parts are
red. The combined effect of these plants is esoteric: due to their supernatural
properties, psychic bodies are created that the eyes have never perceived before, so
that one is overwhelmed by this strange new dimension. This world penetrates the
top of the head so that the aura stimulates a gland between the eyebrows.
At the top left we see a bird called rompe-mortajas an owl that has been
transformed from a tobacco leaf Below we see a great queen with a golden sceptre.
Her name is Mariquita Toe'. She is a doctor with great knowledge. Below her is the
legendary fairy Quetfael, who knows about medicine and paranormal beauty.
Behind the chacruna serpent we see the great sylph Resfenel, the guardian of
several constellations. We see him here surrounded by meteors and bright sapphires
which illuminate his clothes. To the right we see the great gardener with a golden
stick and a pipe shaped like a snake. This being has the rank ofsatrapa pito'nico,~
and always cares for the ayahuasca plant. The cricket we see near him cries in
alarm when anybody cuts a piece of this plant without first making an offering. If
the offering is made, it listens to the prayers: when ayahuasca is ingested it gives
positive effects. The skulls here show that those who do not withstand the effect of
ayahuasca may die. One has to prepare one's body properly before taking this plant.
