THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER As seen on The Joe Rogan Experience! A groundbreaking dive into the role psychedelics have played in the origins of Western civilization, and the real-life quest for the Holy Grail that could shake the Church to its foundations. The most influential religious historian of the 20th century, Huston Smith, once referred to it as the "best-kept secret" in history. Did the Ancient Greeks use drugs to find God? And did the earliest Christians inherit the same, secret tradition? A profound knowledge of visionary plants, herbs and fungi passed from one generation to the next, ever since the Stone Age? There is zero archaeological evidence for the original Eucharist – the sacred wine said to guarantee life after death for those who drink the blood of Jesus. The Holy Grail and its miraculous contents have never been found. In the absence of any hard data, whatever happened at the Last Supper remains an article of faith for today’s 2.5 billion Christians. In an unprecedented search for answers, The Immortality Key examines the archaic roots of the ritual that is performed every Sunday for nearly one third of the planet. Religion and science converge to paint a radical picture of Christianity’s founding event. And after centuries of debate, to solve history’s greatest puzzle. Before the birth of Jesus, the Ancient Greeks found salvation in their own sacraments. Sacred beverages were routinely consumed as part of the so-called Ancient Mysteries – elaborate rites that led initiates to the brink of death. The best and brightest from Athens and Rome flocked to the spiritual capital of Eleusis, where a holy beer unleashed heavenly visions for two thousand years. Others drank the holy wine of Dionysus to become one with the god. In the 1970s, renegade scholars claimed this beer and wine – the original sacraments of Western civilization – were spiked with mind-altering drugs. In recent years, vindication for the disgraced theory has been quietly mounting in the laboratory. The constantly advancing fields of archaeobotany and archaeochemistry have hinted at the enduring use of hallucinogenic drinks in antiquity. And with a single dose of psilocybin, the psychopharmacologists at Johns Hopkins and NYU are now turning self-proclaimed atheists into instant believers. But the smoking gun remains elusive. If these sacraments survived for thousands of years in our remote prehistory, from the Stone Age to the Ancient Greeks, did they also survive into the age of Jesus? Was the Eucharist of the earliest Christians, in fact, a psychedelic Eucharist? With an unquenchable thirst for evidence, Muraresku takes the reader on his twelve-year global hunt for proof. He tours the ruins of Greece with its government archaeologists. He gains access to the hidden collections of the Louvre to show the continuity from pagan to Christian wine. He unravels the Ancient Greek of the New Testament with the world’s most controversial priest. He spelunks into the catacombs under the streets of Rome to decipher the lost symbols of Christianity’s oldest monuments. He breaches the secret archives of the Vatican to unearth manuscripts never before translated into English. And with leads from the archaeological chemists at UPenn and MIT, he unveils the first scientific data for the ritual use of psychedelic drugs in classical antiquity. The Immortality Key reconstructs the suppressed history of women consecrating a forbidden, drugged Eucharist that was later banned by the Church Fathers. Women who were then targeted as witches during the Inquisition, when Europe’s sacred pharmacology largely disappeared. If the scientists of today have resurrected this technology, then Christianity is in crisis. Unless it returns to its roots. Featuring a Foreword by Graham Hancock, the NYT bestselling author of America Before.

Muraresku About the Original Book: There is a lot of scholarship on the cultural landscape of Ancient Greeks and early Christians, but almost none of it addresses some controversial questions that have been raised over the years. Did the religious rituals of the Ancient Greeks center around a sacrament of hallucinogenic beer and wine? Did early Christians borrow this sacrament and later replace it with ordinary bread and wine? Is the psychedelic renaissance of the twenty-first century a return to something familiar? To find the answers, Muraresku spends a decade digging into the history of the Greco-Roman world and goes on an epic journey that takes him to numerous archaeological sites in Greece, Italy, and Spain. What emerges is a well-researched narrative that is as shocking as it is entertaining. DISCLAIMER: This book is intended as a companion to, not a replacement for, The Immortality Key.

The ancient Greece that invented democracy, and birthed all the arts and sciences we now take for granted, never heard of Jesus. Before Jerusalem, before Rome, before Mecca, there was Eleusis. 2) The Eleusinian Mysteries were a secret religious cult that flourished in ancient Greece, in honor of Demeter and Persephone, the goddesses of grain and fertility. They were performed for 2,000 years in Eleusis, a town near Athens. The cult was very popular and attracted people from all over the world.

One of the key enigmas of cultural history has been the identity of a sacred plant called Soma in the ancient Rig Veda of India. Mr. Wasson has aroused considerable attention in learned circles and beyond by advancing and documenting the thesis that Soma was a hallucinogenic mushroom - none other than the Amanita muscaria, the fly-agaric that until recent times was the centre of shamanic rites among the Siberian and Uralic tribesmen. In his presentation he throws fascinating light on the role of mushrooms in religious ritual. A section on the post-Vedic history of Soma is contributed by the Sanskrit scholar Wendy Doniger O'Flaherty.Brian C. Muraresku in his best selling book, The Immortality Key: The Secret History Of The Religion With No Name, used Robert Gordon Wassons work: Soma The Divine Mushroom Of Immortality as one of his research tools. Brian C. Muraresku's book features a brilliant Foreword by Graham Hancock, the New York Times bestselling author of America Before: The Key to Earth's Lost Civilization. Amanita muscaria or the Fly Agaric is not a well-known mushroom based on its scientific name or common name. Yet, the picture on the left, of this mushroom, will probably be familiar to the reader. In recent time, it is the mushroom that has been adopted as the "prototype" mushroom in western cultures. Its image can be seen in Christmas and greeting cards, children's stories, science fiction and fantasy illustrations, and in mushroom models. There has even been a great deal made of its connections with Christmas, but probably too much has been made of this connection and different interpretations of this theory is available. However, it is more than just a "pretty mushroom". It is a species that is thought to have had tremendous impact on some of today's cultures for at least four thousand years and has been thought by some to be at the root of the origin of some of today's religions. In 1968, Gordon Wasson put forth the concept that this mushroom was the "plant" that was referred to as Soma, in his now much cited "Soma, Divine Mushroom of Immortality". Wasson believed Soma was the mushroom that was utilized in religious ceremonies, over 4000 years ago, before the beginning of our Christian era, by the people who called themselves "Aryans". Wasson also believed the hallucinogenic properties of the A. muscaria to be the cause of the "ecstasy" described in the Rig Veda, the holy book of the Hindu.

What causes us to age? At first, that sounds like a stupid question. Aging is such an intrinsic aspect to the human condition we tend to take for granted it . . . just . . . happens. But we live in a world of cause and effect. Aging is an effect, so what is the cause? The common way of thinking about this is from the perspective our bodies are physical, and everything else that's physical eventually wears out or breaks down, such as our cars, our houses, and even our computers. That's known as the "wear and tear" theory of aging. But our bodies are different from such items because they're alive and, in optimum conditions of health, regenerate themselves if at all possible. Cuts heal over, broken bones knit, and so on. Indeed, every day millions of our cells die in the course of performing their functions. They're simply replaced by new cells. Our bodies can even work around permanently damaged tissue, even including the brain itself. However, at a certain point, our bodies become less able to repair and regenerate. About age 40 we stop totally repairing and processing all the protein from our dead and damaged cells. Like a declining city running out of tax revenue, services such as street repair and garbage collection get farther and farther behind. The fear of death and the desire to live (youthfully) forever have obsessed humanity since the dawn of our species. In one way or another, we have searched for the Fountain of Youth, to become immortal -- eternally young. In the last hundred to hundred-fifty years or so, the average life span of people -- especially in the developed world -- has increased dramatically. Credit for that goes principly to improved sanitation, antibiotics, improved care of infants and small children, and an increase in the food supply. So we've removed or dramatically reduced many of the causes of childhood through adulthood death. We're living longer because more of us reach old age. Once there, however, the main causes of death are heart disease, cancer, and strokes. The medical establishment has created heroic measures to help people with these and related problems. But what if we could avoid them altogether? What if we could "cure" the "disease" of old age? How long would we live? Isn't that a better question? That's the purpose of this short report -- to tell you about the Nobel winning medical research on telomeres and telomerase which may hold the key to an extra long lifespan, and the supplement which is available right now to help you live longer. It's not for everybody, and it may not be for you. And you'll also learn additional ways to maintain good health far into advanced old age. Now we have additional scientific evidence showing moderate exercise, a noninflammatory diet, controlling stress, and antioxidants really do help you live not only better, but longer. This is a short report -- around 10,000 words -- on the amazing health and anti-aging benefits available right now to seniors who wish to postpone old age and death as long as possible. Therefore, scroll up, and download it right away.

Excerpt: HOW TO GET TO HEAVEN ALIVE PART ONE The immortality of individual life is a subject which has had vital consideration for all thinking people of the world in all ages. Those who have used their mind to contemplate the subject of life have earnestly desired to solve this apparently unsolvable mystery--to make immortality a reality, here and now; not just a hope that the reality of immortality will be realized in some future. This quest for immortality which has been sought throughout the centuries should awaken the thinker to realize that this desire is inherent in all who are aware of life. From whence comes this desire and Why? Because it is possible of fulfillment. The one reason the desire comes up in the mind, is that this desire could not be awakened in the mind unless it were possible of fulfillment. The fact is that desire must be possible of fulfillment, otherwise it could not be awakened in the individual. If the individual could have a desire that could not be fulfilled, the mind “would commit a fraud upon itself”. In fact, this is impossible. The Great Teacher of life’s immortality said to his disciples who questioned the ability of the individual to fulfill all desire, “To God (Mind), all things are possible.” Failing to comprehend that immortality is a present possibility, the teachers of religion have inspired a faith in the final comprehension and gaining of life’s immortality in a future realm beyond the present in that state of consciousness called the hereafter. It is worthy of consideration to remember that there is still a here in the hereafter. In other words, the teaching of the religions of todayleaves the impression that if the immortality of life is not gained in the present, it will be discerned and embraced in some future. This teaching encourages one to postpone the effort to embrace immortality here and now. If immortality can be comprehended and embraced in some future, then it must be possible to embrace it here and now. Why? Because the individual is always capable of doing whatever the individual will ever do. There must be a deep seated reason for this faith in life’s immortality. Something above and beyond the human mind causes the individual to cling to this faith in spite of the record that a very few have reached this divine consummation in the nearly six thousand years of recorded human race. Reference will be made throughout this manuscript to an individual known in history as Jesus, the Christ, or the Prophet of Galilee. We refer to him as the Master Christian. This identification is sensible, intelligent and genuine. This prophet of Galilee is the only one in the centuries to furnish to the people of the world, proof of the immortality and eternality of life. This he did, by reappearing after he was crucified, embalmed and was three days in a tomb. This Master Christian reappeared in the same body which was crucified, since the nail prints of the crucifixion were still in his hands and body. In this reappearing, the Master Christian proved that the body depends upon life or mind, and not life or mind dependent upon the body. This prophet of Galilee was a Master of masters. He was not a religionist, but a scientist. Like all true scientists, he substantiated this science by his words and works. He was also unaffected by the unwillingness of his hearers to comprehend and embrace his doctrine. His life and works are an example that all who will comprehend his doctrine can “do also.” He says, “The works that I do shall he (all who will adopt and utilize my doctrine) do also.” This faith in immortality as a present possibility received a strong effect on indi

What is health worth? What is beauty worth? What is life worth? And when does life stop being worth the effort? The detectives of the special-operations squad find themselves faced with these questions as they investigate one of their strangest cases ever. It begins with a routine surveillance of the local Mafia godfather, but quickly gets strange when they realize that after years of hostility he’s suddenly become the best of buddies with the local godfather of Chinese organized crime. A third player enters the scene; he turns out to be a plastic surgeon. The detectives at first suspect that they’re involved in some sort of insurance fraud, but it develops that they’re cooperating in a health scam that claims to be able to keep people young forever--in effect, they’re claiming to have produced an immortality drug. One of the detectives, Dan Martin, is divorced. His ex-wife comes to town, and they get together to discuss some old investments held over from their marriage. He is uninvolved and her second husband died two years earlier, so the old attraction between them starts to come out and they become romantically involved. Then Martin discovers the true reason she came to town--she has an advanced case of cancer, and she has enrolled in an experimental treatment program at a local hospital. She, more than anyone, is in need of an immortality drug. As the detectives investigate the health scam, they begin to build a case by slowly fitting together the pieces of the puzzle. The strangest piece of all is that the gangsters and the doctors who work for them may be using stolen human organs to create a drug to keep people young. By working hard and being smart enough to take advantage of good luck, the detectives finally get enough evidence to launch a raid against everyone involved in the scam. That’s when they discover the truth behind the immortality drug. A few days later, Martin’s ex-wife learns the results of her cancer treatment, and both she and Martin have to deal with the consequences.

My Key to Immortality: Tuning Your Mind into the Life of Universal Love provides the author’s thoughts on various aspects of her life with a purpose to opening the reader’s mind, as a preparation to transitioning one’s consciousness to the next level, while discovering new dimensions of life. These simple realizations decode the “immortality”—eternal life of love and happiness. Since the realization is individual for each human being, the writer refrains from providing definitions and explanations, but rather asks questions, leading you to clues to finding your own treasure and keys to opening new doors. Her examples and the use of language aim to free the mind of routine existence, while you discover your own path to your own immortality and eternal love. Main sources of factual background, teachings referenced, and inspiration for this book include: The Tibetan Book of the Dead, The Law of Attraction, Ancient Study of Indian Numerology, and a recently discovered teaching of Ayat, or The Sun-Health, which has become an essential element in the author’s life. “Dear reader, I am inviting you on a journey into simple truths of my life, which I believe will bring you closer to discovering yourself and your own key to immortality. We each have our own path in our own lives, and no one else can show you how to walk yours, because only you know what it is, and only you make it real. I am not going to hand to you the key to eternity, for I can only truly give you a small hint—that it could be the simplest and most complex thing you could ever imagine. Sincerely, Vira Burmenko”

The Human race is endowed with the gene of immortality. Our genome can endure thousands, perhaps millions of years. But what of our consciousness? Can we achieve the awareness of the immortality of our self? The Gospel of Thomas claims that: "whosoever finds the explanation of these words shall not taste death." An international group of scholars provided the translation of the Coptic text discovered in Nag Hammadi, while the author offers his explanation of the 114 sayings attributed to Jesus. He offers the Key to Immortality.

'It's a trip - engrossing, eye-opening, mind altering' New Statesman 'Fascinating. Pollan is the perfect guide ... curious, careful, open minded' The Guardian From the international bestselling author of How to Change Your Mind comes a ground-breaking exploration of our relationship with natural drugs Of all the many things humans rely on plants for, surely the most curious is our use of them to change consciousness: to stimulate, calm, or completely alter the qualities of our mental experience. In This Is Your Mind On Plants, Michael Pollan explores three very different drugs - opium, caffeine and mescaline - and throws the fundamental strangeness of our thinking about them into sharp relief. Exploring and participating in the cultures that have grown up around these drugs, while consuming (or in the case of caffeine, trying not to consume) them, Pollan reckons with the powerful human attraction to psychoactive plants, and the equally powerful taboos. In a unique blend of history, science, memoir and reportage, Pollan shines a fresh light on a subject that is all too often treated reductively. In doing so, he proves that there is much more to say about these plants than simply debating their regulation, for when we take them into our bodies and let them change our minds, we are engaging with nature in one of the most profound ways we can. This ground-breaking and singular book holds up a mirror to our fundamental human needs and aspirations, the operations of our minds and our entanglement with the natural world.

Bayesian statistics has exploded into biology and its sub-disciplines, such as ecology, over the past decade. The free software program WinBUGS, and its open-source sister OpenBugs, is currently the only flexible and general-purpose program available with which the average ecologist can conduct standard and non-standard Bayesian statistics. Comprehensive and richly commented examples illustrate a wide range of models that are most relevant to the research of a modern population ecologist All WinBUGS/OpenBUGS analyses are completely integrated in software R Includes complete documentation of all R and WinBUGS code required to conduct analyses and shows all the necessary steps from having the data in a text file out of Excel to interpreting and processing the output from WinBUGS in R
