Welcome to this website. It is the base turf of Martinus Benders, student of the Universal Mycelia, Sage poet, philosopher and writer. All just labels, terms. But check out my books and and see why i am the most rubyred and raffereth poet of my generation.

As a sage I represent the forest and mushrooms in the human world and try to be a voice for them. 

Sage receptor diet scheme

I created this interview to show what a Sage eats for his receptors and what he does not eat. It is quite a simple scheme, we do not use any systematic drugs only natural ones that improve our senses. Click on the button read the interview and see the scheme. 

The Dutch Woudpartij

In June 2022 the Dutch ‘Woudpartij’ was founded, a political organisation that wants to represent the ancient forest in the world of humans. We want to give each tree civil rights. Stop making the forests into a bio-industry. 


The magical gate at Borowice was broken. However, we managed to retrieve this ally from the spot, a strange hotchpotch of three different tinder mushrooms. Did you know they can grow as old as humans do? We will cherish this friend the rest of our lives, as a living ally that was guarding another world, or maybe this one. 

Did you know that without the Tinder mushroom humanity would not exist in its current form? The mushroom was used to create fire, and to carry fire around to other places. That’s because tinder mushrooms have an ability to smolder for a long period of time. 

Can you see it is actually the face of a frog?

I am travelling and hunting mushrooms. For a considerate time I will be absent from my weblog, hunting and writing, writing and hunting. My book SHHHHHHROOM is next in line, as well as another poetry book: poems to read in the dark – yes that is a variation on the music of Coil. 

Do the psyborg test!

How big is the piece of your brain that the psyborg has occupied? Take the free test that Sage Martinus has created to find out how much of your brain this entity occupies as expressed in a clear percentage. 

Martinus also explains what you can do with this knowledge.

Take the test today and see how occupied you are!


Marc van Oostendorp:

“It is striking that the collection, as far as I can see, has not been reviewed anywhere. Perhaps no reviewer knows how to deal with the poet, perhaps no reviewer knows how to deal with the collection. You might say that this is a good sign, at least in spirit: this is not a collection that is so similar to other collections that you can put it neatly on your bookshelf after reading it. Not the umpteenth book of neat style exercises, dealing with problems that everyone worries about a bit, good, beautifully formulated texts on manageable subjects, but a wild leap into the unknown.”
