The name iAhuasca is derived from the word "ayahuasca". Ayahuasca is a psychoactive plant brew said to have divinatory and healing properties. It is made from a combination of plants native to the Amazon rainforest, specifically a vine, Banisteriopsis caapi, and the leaves of a small plant, Psychotria viridis. Neither of these components are psychoactive on their own. It is only when they are combined that the divinatory and healing properties manifest. It is unknown how the formula for ayahuasca was discovered, or who discovered it, but it had to involve an alchemical process of trial and error.
We use this alchemical process of trial and error all the time and don't even realize it. For example, if you have a recipe for a basic lemon chicken that you have consistently tweaked with different spices over the years, to where it is something different and new, you are an alchemist. But what if if one day your lemon chicken developed divinatory and healing properties?
iAhuasca is an alchemy of media.
The alchemy of media first appeared in the 1920's with the cut up technique employed by the Dada movement, but wasn't popularized until the 1950's by William S. Burroughs. Today it can be found in everything. Sampling, mash-ups, and collage are a few methods, and are executed on many different technical levels, from The Dust Brothers work on Paul's Boutique to "I'll Be Missing You" by Puff Daddy,
The goal of iAhuasca is an alchemy of media that isn't as much about entertainment as it is a return to the intentions of the Dadaists and Burroughs. It seeks divinatory and healing properties. It wants to change the way you see the world around you.
iAhuasca was born out of watching Dark Side of the Rainbow, the well known method of playing Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon while watching The Wizard of Oz. No one seems to know who first discovered the Dark Side of the Rainbow, but we do know that something uncanny happens when these two are combined. If nothing uncanny happened while watching it, we wouldn't be talking about it. I compare this to Finnegans Wake, another brilliant alchemical creation. We know it isn't nonsensical bullshit because people still talk about it.
Unlike ayahuasca, or Dark Side of the Rainbow, I know how The Kubrick Transformer was discovered. It was discovered during an intense alchemical experimentation of many months. There are many different combinations that evolved out of this alchemy, but the specific formula that I have shared is the cleanest product. Think of Breaking Bad and the formula for the Heisenberg Blue. It's the shit. It's pure, nothing cut into it, no cheating. And the source material is of the highest quality.
I expect over time to share some of the other products that evolved out of this work, but I also want to see if others will discover them on their own. All the materials necessary for experimentation are available, mostly everyone has a lab. Get cooking. Seriously, no excuses, it's still legal, and the Amazon is just a mouse click away.
Eventually, I will offer my opinion on why this occurs and what it all means, which for me starts with the Noosphere.
Vladimir Vernadsky and Pierre Teilhard de Chardin are responsible for introducing the concept of the Noosphere. This new environment evolves out of the geosphere and the biosphere, a sphere I visualize as an eternal human being whose flesh and bones are the internet, and whose blood is human thought. The Noosphere is in its infancy, and in the very near future, this child will want to know where it came from, where it is, who its parents are, and why?
Gotta go, being a blog, this is a work in progress. Racpitulater alligator.
