Weird chemicals in strange places that may have shaped the world

  1. Potter
    A weird tidbit on the chemical Hordenine came up in researching the false peyotes the other day. It's a 2C phenylethylamine with a stupid hydroxyl group that keeps it from hitting the 5-HT2 receptor, if I can find some way to prove that 2,000 years ago it was possible for someone to have turned it active, I might just have something really exciting. I mean REALLY EXCITING!

    I'll have something posted in a few days down in the ethno section once I get the papers I've found uploaded. If anyone has anything they'd like to share with me, I'll show you the real love.

    Heh, humans have always been ape-like, and continue to be. . . there's a reason for that. . . it's that we _are apes_. Weirdass, big headed, semi-aquatic apes, but apes nonetheless.

    This may have nothing to do with your post above,but I have always wondered if mind altering substances from plants,played a role in the evolution of the human brain(augmented/advanced development).......from the time humans were more ape-like.sorry just a random thought after reading your post,good luck with your research sir.
