Can you prove you are not standing with one arm in the air?

You waited to see which way the cat would jump and in the meantime you let yourself be injected with an experimental substance, because otherwise you would not be allowed to go on holiday. The fact that having yourself injected with an experimental substance does not rhyme with waiting to see which way the cat jumps, was something you took for granted in this case. Oh well, they will know what they are doing, won’t they? Who these ‘they’ are didn’t interest you too much either. They, you know. And then the West Block allows you to go on holiday again. Read along:

prove you are not ill even if there is no epidemic

Good. What did you call people who ‘believe’ in the above? Well, I don’t agree with the idea that I should have to prove that I’m not sick, I don’t believe the government has the right to demand it, I don’t believe it’s effective, I don’t believe the government has the right to decide where you can travel to. Funny how I don’t believe that? Nor do I believe that the government has the right to determine which newspapers or information I may read. What a bizarre person I am. Seems like someone from another era. I don’t even believe that the government should decide what subjects writers should write about with punishment and reward!

No, I don’t believe you can contain a cold with measures either. If you do believe that, you can play the expert on television 24/7, but you will have to do it without my regard.

The same goes for people who believe that the war in Ukraine, after being announced for six months, has nothing to do with the collapse of the corona narrative.

So in the meantime we have to carry an Ausweiss that proves we are not ill even if that disease is nowhere to be found. Just because it is easy. Do you know what is also easy? Putting your arm up into the air.. Or is that just not scientific enough?

Mountains, giants and mushrooms – in this fairytale-like collection, magic whirls and swirls, yet another reality breaks through as well – the whole world turned into The Shining, and the pilgrimage to Szymborska’s grave, a simple stone in Krakow, fails at the last minute; a journey without check marks across sixteen national borders to his daughter, however, succeeds. In its combination of fairy-tale nature, historical background and eerily topical reality, this collection of poems is Benders’ best since he lost count.


You have no time to read this, but that is because you are no longer human. If something of the original person were still alive in you, the old mycelia of childhood, then you would learn a lot from this book, indeed, with its magical knowledge, it might become your most useful possession. A book about the human imagination, and how it managed to get into the iron grip of trans-dimensional cockroaches. Furthermore, there are also magical tips to substantially improve your life and your time acceleration, and M.H.H. Benders also makes light-hearted mincemeat of the entire Dutch literature, what more could you want!

If you don’t want to crawl around mars like a cyber insect under a scrubbed boot – which is on the agenda – then you’d do well to read this book.

The first collected work of Martinus Hendrikus Hogervorst-Benders comprises no fewer than 712 pages and weighs in at least 1.4 kilos in thin print. It is the most ambitious collection written in the last thirty years, and certainly one of the highlights of Dutch literature as a whole, in line with Snoek and van de Woestijne. Anyone with a heart for literature and who wants to read an ambitious book brimming with cast-iron poems instead of yet another typical Dutch-language ‘masterpiece’ will be delighted with the purchase of this brick.

The Microdose Bible is the worlds most comprehensive and complete oversight of mind altering substances, teacher plants and mushrooms. Dutch mycologist and philosopher M.H.H.Benders takes you on a magical journey full of wonder about what teachers nature has to offer. Includes the Psychosupersum, a guide that describes all known mental disorders and offers wisdom for their treatment. 

This book will be published end of 2022.
