Newly Discovered Lost Cities of the Amazon - Could They Solve the Mystery of Ayahuasca?
Using LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology, lost cities of the Amazon have been discovered. The cities date back to 1,400 AD and show the area to be heavily urbanized; with suburban like settlements, a distribution system with with reservoirs & canals, monumental platforms and pyramid architecture.
Let’s turn our attention to Ayahuasca. How the Amazon Jungle Dwellers discovered Ayahuasca has remained a mystery for generations. Synthesizing Ayahuasca is no small feat. Let’s it break down:
Ayahuasca is a combination of DMT (an extremely powerful hallucinogenic that only lasts ten minutes) and Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs), which makes the DMT experience last 8 hours. MAOIs stop the breakdown of DMT.
The Amazonian’s had to find these two particular plants that were widely separated geographically out of hundreds of thousands of plants.
They then had to mix them together and boil them at the perfect temperature.
How? It doesn’t make any sense that a culture of hunter gatherers could embark on such a sophisticated endeavor. And how did they know synthesizing these two random plants miles apart would create an incredibly powerful, life-altering spiritual experience?
The mythology has always been that the plants spoke to the Natives. But to the skeptical, science-minded folk - this doesn’t cut it.
The discovery of remnants of a civilization lends itself to a better explanation: the Amazonian’s were far more advanced than previously believed. In addition to building cities & monuments, they experimented with the cultivation and use of drugs. It’s still a mystery…but one that now has an entirely more plausible explanation. However, applying this hypothesis of how Ayahuasca was discovered creates another mystery - what happened to the Amazonian’s? To solve for that, we turn to the Younger Dryas Impact Theory.
The Younger Dryas Impact Theory posits that fragments of a large, disintegrating asteroid or comet struck North America, South America, Europe & Western Asia around 12,850 years ago.
In his 2015 book ‘Magicians of the Gods’, Graham Hancock argued the Younger Dryas comet destroyed the Earth and created a mini-Ice Age. Attempts to shut down Hancock’s work (there are a lot of people in the scientific community who would have their life’s work proven wrong if Hancock is right) are not very convincing. This event would explain the eradication of the Amazonian civilizations (as well as other great mysteries, like how the Pyramids of Egypt were constructed).
What is more likely - two plants miles away from one another ‘communicated’ to a primitive tribe in the Amazon jungle OR a very advanced civilization learned how to synthesize and take powerful drugs, and that civilization was subsequently wiped out by a cosmic event? We know asteroids & comets hit the Earth (think Dinosaurs). We also know that humans love drugs, and cultivating & taking them has been part of many if not all civilizations.
I think the answer is pretty obvious. But what do YOU think? Feel free to comment & lmk what you believe!
