1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    Shamanism entails the act of embodying specialized theoretical and practical premises,
    premises that encompass the nature and role of perception in the world around us (Castaneda
    2004). Shamanism enraptures archaic techniques of ecstasy, archaic referring to the preindustrial
    and the preliterate (McKenna 1993). Shamanism allows liberation from certain limitations that
    exist within society. The primary component in shamanism is the shaman. Schizophrenia is a
    severe mental affliction characterized by a withdrawal from ordinary reality, unique patterns of
    thinking, delusions, and hallucinations (Sarason and Sarason 2004).The primary component of
    schizophrenia is the schizophrenic. A massive array of hidden similarities exists between
    shamanism and schizophrenia, and these links show that the shaman equals a schizophrenic and
    that the schizophrenic equals a shaman.
