Dear Paul Stamets,
I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to tell you about a book I am working on about amanita muscaria and its role in the evolution of humanity.
I have discovered that there has always been a gap in evolutionary biology: the inability to explain why fishes went onto land. However, I believe I have found the missing piece to this puzzle.
I believe that the precursor to ibotenic acid, a chemical found in amanita muscaria, was present in seaweed. Fishes that ate this seaweed developed a condition called repetitive movement syndrome, which caused them to have shock-like movements that eventually propelled them onto land.
That’s why humans have the Muscarine receptor network that handles…the focus of the eyes.
I believe my book contains some of the most important scientific hypothesa that will explain exactly why mushrooms grew to be so unpopular in the west.
It contains a chapter about the history of mushrooms that is unparalleled.
I am excited to share this breakthrough information with the world and would be honored if you would consider reading my book once it is published. If you are a fan of poetry, I would also be delighted if you would take the time to read my collection of poems titled “Poetry to Read in the Dark.” I offer it for free right here:Poetry to Read in the Dark (2022) (362 downloads)
Thank you for your time and consideration. I would be most honored to host you if you are ever in the Netherlands, or to arrange a mushroom symposium here. Drop me a line!
Sincerely, Martijn Benders
