Yup, and the main seat of the soul. I read somewhere that the Greeks later switched to the esophagus and then the heart. Some old cultures still use sayings that reference the liver as the seat of the soul, emotions, love, etc.

Wasn't it more commonly the liver?
I don't remember. I do recall that either the ancient greeks or the ancient romans once thought that the liver was the seat of intelligence and consciousness in the body.

Raw paleo or cooked paleo?

Why this question? You'll be of course able to eat raw in Ho Chi Minh City!

Wouldn't they have the same foods as in Manila? It's pretty much the same climate, I think.

Shamanistic plants in general have been of tremendous importance in my life. However at one point I felt like they had taught me what I needed and moved on. I'd mostly say that the benefits are psychological and spiritual. Yet, it's not really that sort of therapeutic help I need right now, since its not a psychological issue. Although lately I've been feeling like I'll like to make a trip to take peyote.


However I've thought about really not eating much mushrooms ( non-allucinogenic) and that I should explore more about them. Lions mane mushrooms sound really interesting. Not sure if I'll find them here.

I'm grateful for this journey as it has made me grow in many valuable ways. Sometimes it's not easy seeing it this way though. After all, it's usually only under threat that humans grow, sadly.

Right now I work as a software developer. So no, maybe it's not helping me heal directly, but right now it gives me the money to get things that can actually heal me. There a very few jobs in Mexico which let you live properly, and right now I still need the stability to repair my nervous system.



BTW, last weekend it was a special occasion, so I drank some mezcal. I actually felt pretty good the following days. I'm wondering if it had to do with pyroluria related symptoms or maybe it was the big amount of seafood I downed on the Sunday? I'm still pretty much in the dark.


This about 3 dolars worth of oysters in the market of La viga. I usually get this and a kilo of clams for another 3 bucks,

Actually, evidence for cannibalism in the palaeolithic era is widespread. Some cannibalism can be attributed to eating the dead of the  relevant tribe, but other examples are likely due to intertribal warfare which was frequent but intermittent. We see this also  in the case of more modern hunter-gatherers who believed  customs such as that eating the heart of an enemy would give one the enemy's courage etc.

Genetic distances and molecular datings based on O. canadensis CR and mtDNA protein-coding sequences provide strong evidence for domestications from two mouflon subspecies. ...

Likely candidates for truly wild ancestors of [haplogroup] cluster B are mouflon populations found in Turkey and western Iran. These sheep are currently referred to as O. orientalis anatolica and O. orientalis gmelini, although their subspecies status is debatable. ...

the origin of haplogroup [cluster] A remains unknown. Considering the probable subspecies relationship of the founders of both clusters of domestic sheep matrilines, mouflon (O. orientalis) populations of the eastern mouflon range are probable candidates.
