    Sacred Mushrooms and Religion
    Mushrooms have an uncanny reputation, some are poisonous, while others have hallucinogenic effects and have been used for spiritual purposes since the beginning of time. "They have suggestive phallic shapes, they appear suddenly and flourish in unexpected places, and their propagation and growth was long a mystery. The fact that mushrooms were observed appearing after thunderstorms suggested that they had been sired by lightning and thunder, and connected them with sky gods."

    The Un-veiled Priestly Version of the Story of Osiris
    The Un-veiled Priestly Version of the Story of Osiris  *As Moses would have learned as a prince of Egypt The original form of the myth states that Osiris was killed in a wooden sarcophagus [coffin] secretly being made to his measurements, and then a party held where the coffin was offered to whoever it fitted. A few people tried to fit in, but to no avail, until Osiris was encouraged to try, who, as soon as he lay back, had the lid slammed on him and it sealed closed.

    Ancient Secrets V
    "Vitriol is a very noble mineral among the rest, and was held always in highest estimation by philosophers, because the Most High God has adorned it with wonderful gifts. They have veiled its arcanum in enigmatical figures like the following: "Thou shalt go to the inner parts of the earth, and by rectification thou shalt find the occult stone, a true medicine". By the earth they understood the Vitriol itself; and by the inner parts of the earth its sweetness and redness, because in the occult

    Ancient Secrets III
    "The Arabs and Greeks, by the occult characters and hieroglyphic descriptions of the Persians and the Egyptians, attained to secret and abstruse mysteries. When these were obtained and partially understood they saw with their own eyes, in the course of experimenting, many wonderful and strange effects. But since the supercelestial operations lay more deeply hidden than their capacity could penetrate, they did not call this a supercelestial arcanum according to the institution of the Magi, but

    Ancient Secrets II
    "Many persons have endeavoured to investigate and make use of the secret magic of these wise men; but it has not yet been accomplished. Many even of our own age exalt Trithemius, others Bacon and Agrippa, for magic and the cabala ' two things apparently quite distinct ' not knowing why they do so. Magic, indeed, is an art and faculty whereby the elementary bodies, their fruits, properties, virtues, and hidden operations are comprehended. But the cabala, by a subtle understanding of the

    Ancient Secrets I
    "The Chaldeans, Persians, and Egyptians had all of them the same knowledge of the secrets of Nature, and also the same religion. It was only the names that differed. The Chaldeans and Persians called their doctrine Sophia and Magic; and the Egyptians, because of the sacrifice, called their wisdom priestcraft. The magic of the Persians, and the theology of the Egyptians, were both of them taught in the schools of old. Though there were many schools and learned men in Arabia, Africa, and Greece,

    Psychedelics of the Bible and the Sacred Acacia
    There is so much information regarding mushroom symbolism and its importance in the origins of religion, but I haven't seen too much regarding Acacia. Considering the genus of Acacia contains mescaline, amphetamines, Bufotenin, DMT, 5-MeO-DMT, NMT, β-carbolines, Tetrahydroharman, and MAOI's (according to wikipedia), it seems a pretty good candidate to be passed down through the ages as an important symbol.

    Osiris the God of Death and Regeneration
    "Osiris is an Egyptian god, identified as the god of the afterlife, the underworld, and the dead, but more appropriately as the god of transition, resurrection, and regeneration. He was classically depicted as a green-skinned deity with a pharaoh's beard, partially mummy-wrapped at the legs, wearing a distinctive crown with two large ostrich feathers at either side, and holding a symbolic crook and flail."
