What does the word ‘drugs’ mean?

Where does the word ‘drugs’ actually come from etymologically, and what can we learn from its origin? The word originates in medieval Dutch, via the Old French drogue, which in turn is possibly a corruption of dry vate, dry goods. When ships used to transport spices and other goods, keeping the goods dry was a high priority, otherwise they would become unsaleable. So ‘drugs’ actually means ‘saleable goods’.

Everything that money can buy is therefore a form of drugs. But what about the intoxication, the influence on the senses and the brain? Isn’t that also a core value of the term drugs?

Certainly, but with one qualification. There are two types of drugs. One is the kind of drug that gets you high. The other is the kind you don’t really notice, the kind that numbs you, makes you foggy, confused.

Society teaches you that you should be very afraid of the first kind. Getting high is bad, ecstasy is crazy, just act normal, etc. About the second kind people just keep silent, it doesn’t exist, they don’t know it.

The war against drugs is a war against competition.

Coffee, tea, fast food (98% of the supermarket), porn, entertainment, games-dopamine, and so on. All are also drugs. All also terribly addictive. Dry goods.

And then of course we have the normalodrug par excellence: bread/yeast. Harmless? Just stop completely with yeast and bread and cheese for a month. See if that will yield:

It is easy
Doesn’t make you feel any different

If you can answer both in the affirmative after a month, you have my permission to call me crazy. But if you have to answer negatively to both then you have a problem. And it’s a problem that I analysed extensively many years ago, when I was stupid enough to ingest the substances that society had attached to the script of ‘writer’, and I came to the conclusion that as long as you keep on pretending that only one side of the coin should be called ‘drugs’ and the other shouldn’t, you’re going to get fucked in the ass and make an assclown of yourself.

What does it matter

Because what does it matter if you don’t drink anymore when you’re addicted to 10 other things? Take something like porn – how many men have a porn addiction, exactly? And what exactly does it do to you and what does it do to the world? These are questions that do not even occur to the intoxicated. They don’t care that they are tapped every day by an evil parasite and they don’t care that with their behaviour they give this parasite power in the world to abuse women. Is normal. That’s how we do things here. Is too hard to stop. And insert some wretched addict logic here: the tenor is clear. Addict.

Getting high is not the problem

This depressing state of mind of narcotic addiction is a much, much bigger problem than getting ecstatic with an exotic tune on your receptors. Yet, in the normal course of events, people present it the other way around: the high is supposed to be the problem, and this depressing state of mind is supposed to be the norm.

Few have asked the question why that high is so problematic for the system. The answer is quite obvious: in order to maintain humanity in its unnatural family form, the parasite must prevent the old tribal structures from reviving. So getting together and getting ecstatic is taboo, you have to get together in a stone building and worship an invisible normalo sock puppet god who is parasite-controlled behind the scene.

Map it

Let me ask you a very honest question: how much of your day do you spend in ecstasy? Be honest!
And did you know that ecstasy is the natural state of the miraculous body, that very young children are always in ecstasy?

What has this ecstasy stolen from them as they have grown older?

Neither problem nor solution

We can therefore conclude that what society calls ‘drugs’ is only a small part of what really are drugs, and that it is precisely this part that society considers undesirable because it awakens old spirits that it wants to eradicate.

We can also conclude that ecstasy is a natural state to which every human being is entitled, and that a clever activation programme is needed to avoid all the parasitic system drugs that are manufactured to pull you back into normalcy.

That’s why I started to build a system in which Oxygen becomes the main drug you take, the basis of life. And with that oxygen we are going to work out all the system parasites, one by one, until you are no longer numb and numb to life but have again the ecstatic energy of your childhood, the real energy. Suicide by silence!

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.
