REAL HUMAN MAGIC1 DEC 2016 - Guardian News of a large trail on terminal cancer patients finds that a single dose of magic mushroom psilocybin brings relief for 6 months. It removes the fear of death and depression, bringing spiritual insight.
No wonder that Big Pharma and heavily lobbied (bribed) governments ban these natural, free psychedelic substances - that mankind has used for hundreds of thousands of years. Killer tobacco and alcohol are of course exempt from drug bans.
Father Christmas prefers the pretty red and white mushrooms that enable him to fly. (Below)

Christmas has many magical meanings of great importance and of hope for the human race. ‘Magical’ knowledge emerges from our imaginations, from our extraordinary ability to visualise and conjure up tangible and abstract, ephemeral and even invisible things – and thus to magically invent universal models, music, medicine, microchips and motors. If we lose our magic – our race will decline and die away.
In the beginning, once upon a time, Christmas was, and is, the Midwinter Solstice of the Northern Hemisphere – which means it is the shortest day and longest night, on the 20th-21st December, with a Full Moon on the 28th December; after which days lengthen - heralding the eventual coming and growth of spring – the renewal of life and its perpetual continuation.
In the Southern Hemisphere the shortest day is in June. Europeans and Asians took the northern festival dates south of the equator and around the world. As the longest, coldest night passed, a tribe could assess if their food would last – and feast on stores that would otherwise spoil – the Christmas Feast.
The secrets, songs and sacred myths of Christmas are deep folk memories of real, evolutionary events, which we have woven into archetypal stories to better remember and understand them. It is not a recent creation of Disney,
and Bing Crosby. Hollywood
The great festival of good tidings comes from our memories of glittering ice, snow, cold, clear skies and survival – probably from as far back as the ice-ages – which cover most of the Earth about every nine-thousand years, scour it clean and then recede back to the Poles – and let us warm up, and maybe further evolve, for a while. Our shared human unconscious and genes are now thought to date back more than five-million years – or five-hundred waxing and waning ice-ages through which we have survived, thrived and evolved. Our long-body, back to Adam and Eve, carries the marks of those millennia.
Every new baby is born with all the genetic records generated through the Ice-Ages, from the beginning of Time and intuitively has knowledge of our species, the Earth and the Universe – from which it comes. One gram of the baby’s DNA can digitally record all the E-information of all our global activities for an entire year –
encoded a “DNA” book to prove it, earlier this year. Isn’t that magical? And it illustrates how the baby can effortlessly be carrying the entire history of the whole human race in its very essence. DNA STORES YOUR LIFE Harvard Medical School
It is little wonder that the Jews prophesised the Messiah as a newborn – who would miraculously save the world. All babies are potential Saviours and perhaps wise people can spot the exceptional new arrivals. And thus the Old Testament mythological prophesy was fulfilled when Jesus (Joshua, Yahshua, God-Saves) was born, in a stable, in Bethlehem, two-thousand-and-twelve years ago, under a clear, cold sky, marked by a new brilliant star. The Gospel “Christ” is Greek for “Anointed One” from “chrism” or oil – the blessed ceremonial oil of Jewish Temples. And, Yes, it does snow in
, so the Christmas crib scenes are not impossible depictions. It was indeed a miracle of life and creation; which magically triggered the imaginations of the hundreds of millions of people who now are Christians. Christ was and is one of the world’s “Great Souls”. At Christmas, we celebrate his miraculous birth and wondrous potential. Israel did not invent Him. Hollywood
The explanation that I most like is that Northern families in the forests of the Tundra used to survive winter by digging six-foot (2 metre) pits in which they erected Yurts (round tents of skins and wadded wool). The pits provided warmth and secure windproof earthen walls to ward off wolves and bears. Each Yurt was entered through a roof-hole that let out the smoke, thus it was a chimney, with a ladder down to the floor. Here the family would live out the freezing months. The further north they were, the longer and darker the nights.
But, not everyone was immobilised by the snow and ice.
