Musical projects:

One of my hobbies is making music. I am still in the process of learning all the tricks of the trade, but I have progressed enough to share some of my creations with the world now. The project ULTRAJOYDIVISION consists of turning myself into 10 bands in 2024, deliver 10 good albums for those 10 bands and then write a poetry book to accompany those songs. s

Welcome, dear adventurer, on the website of Martijn Benders, writer of a pile of high quality books. But what good is that knowledge to you – well, it signifies my expertise in the field, whether it be poetry or philosophy. As always with large piles, they will just confuse the potential reader: hell, where do I start and for what reason? That’s why i made a few tips for you, you should start with:

Traktaat van de Zon if you want to check my skills as a poet. But that one is Dutch. Available here. 

Amanita Muscaria, the Book of the Empress if you are interested in an experts view on this magical mushroom, that debunks tuns of misinformation about the subject other books leave intact.  Available here

Waarover de Piranha droomt in de limonadesloot‘ and ‘De eeuwige ontgroening‘ are philosophical works about the human imagination, but again: in Dutch. These will be translated in 2024 however. Available in Dutch here and here

I dedicated three years to crafting this book, a journey that stretched out due to the need to challenge and correct the widespread myths about the Amanita Muscaria mushroom. This book is now essential for those who appreciate not just aesthetically pleasing books, but also those that offer crucial, accurate information.

Take, for example, the numerous books on microdosing Amanita Muscaria. Yes, consuming small amounts does produce effects, but microdosing is supposed to be about subperceptual impacts. Unfortunately, achieving these subtle effects with Amanita Muscaria is a non-starter.

There’s a group of people who don’t notice anything when using this mushroom. However, the majority always experience noticeable effects, making true microdosing with this mushroom an impossibility. So, why all these books? Well, it’s the usual story: many people haven’t fully thought through the consequences and implications of their ideas. And trust me, it’s critical to ponder these before diving in.

More than 400 visitors and 30 hearts in two days for my moth opera in German – that’s extraordinary! That’s the equivalent of 4 sold out theaters! I am working on Dutch, German, and English versions.
