Introducing mycophilosophy

Introducing mycophilosophy

Recently I started to call myself a mycophilosopher. Mycophilosophy is not philosophising amplified by mushroom use, but philosophy which has multidimensional reality as its basis instead of the cramped
3 dimensions into which modern man has been bred by a parasitic entity they worship as ‘God’.

To be precise: reality is the point of awareness which is able to travel between different realities that do not have a hierarchical relation to each other.

The difference with standard philosophy is that while standard philsophy admits there are possibly more dimensions, they call the travelling of the awareness to such places ‘dreams’ or ‘hallucinations’ and regard this reality as superior in ‘realness’, which from our perspective is not just a false claim but a malignant one.

The ‘God’ white men have invented prefers to isolate their worshippers from nature: come and sit in dark cubicles to worship our invisible sock puppet. So separation from nature is the motto. And that is precisely where I pause for a moment and raise a question:

Why is it that a substantial proportion of people who use Amanita Muscaria say they have not noticed it?


There is a common answer floating around, namely that certain brain circuits might have been damaged in these people. I see no evidence for this and think I have a much better answer to the question myself:

There is a bridge, and that bridge is sealed.

Receptor circuits in the gut and the brain (I consider the gut to be a type of brain, by the way) are intertwined in a system that controls our perception, sensation and energy. So, in fact, pretty much controls everything, because without such things nothing would exist.

However, that ‘big system’ has fallen into disuse and human receptor circuits are dominated by the dopamine and serotonin circuits.

For these to be so dominant, the bridges to the rest of the circuitry had to be sealed.

So there you have the answer: these people don’t notice anything because the dopamine and serotonin circuits are the only circuits in them that still work, and the bridges to elsewhere are sealed.

And so?

And so such a person lives in a world made by happiness and success as the main drivers. He takes Amanita, but because only those two circuits work for him or her, he or she sees nothing changing in those circuits and the substance does not work.

What do you call someone with sealed brain bridges?

Psyborg is a good term. That’s really just someone with a Default Mode Network (and everyone has one) in whom the bridges to the deeper, visionary receptor circuits no longer function.

The result is that the person in question is a total slave to happiness and success. He cannot be burned from his lazy spot except if you wave a bag of money or a titty slot. I think we all know examples of such people.

What is striking is the complete absence of what I call an evaluation circuit: because the person in question cannot step outside his or her own circuits, it is impossible for him or her to evaluate his or her own behaviour.

You then get the kind of person type who can sit on any jury nationwide, for years, without even for a moment dawning on him that that looks pretty ridiculously autocratic.

OK, pretty straightforward fare so far, but

It gets really interesting when you realise that such people do have those deeper experiences, but because of the lack of that bridge…they don’t remember those experiences.

For example, because those bridges seem to function excellently with me, no matter how much I drank, I never, ever experienced that strange phenomenon of not knowing what I was doing.

I always knew what I was doing, even if I behaved like a lunatic.

The people who at some point stop knowing what they are doing is a dangerous human species.

Can you fix the bridges too?

Another very good question. The answer must be yes, because I believe everything is basically possible in the universe. But just because the answer is yes does not mean it is going to be an easy task. In any case, it certainly isn’t. Indeed, anyone who is really encapsulated in dopamine and serotonin is technically a hard drug addict who, with the utmost difficulty if he or she ever wanted to to get rid of his addiction. That addiction is so bad that even reading books, for example, is entirely in the service of that one, tiny dopamine ping: ping, I belong, part of the conversation of the day. Ergo: the average person only reads because of that very small sense of success to belong to the group. You have to think how shabby you must be to be so put together, but it is the rule, not the exception, that I am discussing here.

I asked Chat GPT

I asked Chat GPT to construct an argument in favour of my position above. After all, this is not difficult at all, but something that I would normally find boring and tedious, making my work seem less scientific than it actually is. No problem:

“It’s an interesting idea that humanity has been “lured” into a brain environment dominated by serotonin and dopamine receptor networks, which causes people to become “slaves” of success and happiness. The idea that other receptor circuits, such as the muscarine one, are overlooked or under-utilized could potentially play a role in this phenomenon.

One argument in favor of this stance is that the modern environment, in many ways, is structured to promote and reward certain behaviors that are associated with elevated levels of serotonin and dopamine, such as achieving success and feeling happy. For example, societal pressure and cultural norms often emphasize the importance of success in career, wealth, and personal relationships, which can create a constant drive to seek out and achieve these goals.

Additionally, the prevalence of technology and social media in our lives can create a constant flow of positive feedback, such as likes, shares, and followers, which can stimulate the release of dopamine in the brain and reinforce the desire to seek out and achieve social validation. The constant bombardment of these cues might lead to an over-reliance on these specific neurotransmitters and the reduction in the use of other receptors such as muscarine

Moreover, The modern lifestyle and diet, which is low in natural sources of muscarine and high in processed and refined foods can reduce the exposure to the receptor and limit the effect it has on the brain.

It’s important to note that this is purely speculative and there isn’t yet scientific evidence that support this claims, but it’s a topic for future studies and research to explore the impact of the environment and lifestyle on brain’s receptor networks.”


And let that be exactly what I discovered in my research: Europe’s first drug laws sprung up simultaneously all over Europe: church fathers everywhere had to ban the use of Waardstoel (Amanita Muscaria). Why? Well, because the plan to make people worship a sock puppet in dark rooms instead of a living God in nature could only work if this hugely assertive substance was eliminated. This was all part of a scheme: the tribal nature of Europe had to change into a family-state based structure in order for their interest plans to work. Banks and Religion developed hand in hand, promotion the idea of overpopulation
and the oedipal unhappy structure of the family with its lack of proper rolemodels, introducing alcohol as the main drug instead of mushrooms.

So the typical ‘Mushroom Hatred’ in the West is not a natural phenomenon, not something that came out of emerged ‘experience’, but is a deliberate move by a clerical elite to breed a human species that is easier to manipulate. not in the tribe with mushrooms celebrating living nature, but in the dark a sock puppet of a power-hungry figure. The history of modern man, as it were. It was always a mystery how that religious sect could so quickly occupy the whole of Europe with their bland narrative.

Think about it!

Think about it: can you change the opinion of just one of the people you know? That is extremely hard, right? They identify with their beliefs and thoughts, in a quite morbid way.

But how could one possibly overhaul the belief systems of independent and strong tribes like the Vikings, Celts, and Germans? These tribes all had sacred traditions surrounding the consumption of mushrooms. If those mushrooms were banned and replaced with alcohol, would it not be similar to the way colonizers subdued the Native Americans through disease and alcohol?

Alcohol has a destructive effect on the brain, burning bridges between receptor networks. When necessary neurotransmitters are banned from the diet, as well as healing plants and mushrooms, individuals become dependent on external sources for connection and their serotonin and dopamine receptor networks become damaged.

We are still operating within the same system. I can’t repeat that often enough: our biology
is a crafted biology, our bodies are created by the things we consume. Banishing mushrooms from our diet is exactly the main cause of the destruction this planet is facing. Mushroom farms would not
tax this planet and while people know 10 different kinds of meat there are 100.000 different tastes
of mushrooms they are completely ignorant of.

Over mij

Martijn Benders publiceerde zesentwintig boeken, waarvan achttien in het Nederlands. Door critici als Komrij en Gerbrandy is hij tot een van de grootste talenten van zijn tijd benoemd. Hij schreef ook drie filosofische werken waarvan eentje in het Engels over de Amanita Muscaria, de Vliegenzwam. Publicerend op het internationale podium van The Philosophical Salon kreeg hij ook internationaal erkenning als een van de meest bijzondere denkers van Nederland.


Er bestaat een aanzienlijke groep linkse individuen die zich krachtig verzette tegen het heersende corona-verhaal, waaronder enkele van ‘s werelds vooraanstaande filosofen, zoals Agamben en Kacem. Dit standpunt werd echter sterk gecensureerd en in een kwaad daglicht gesteld door wat men ‘neocon-links’ of ‘woke-links’ noemt, als behorende tot iets dat enkel geassocieerd zou worden met wat zij als ‘extreemrechts’ beschouwen. In mijn boek bespreek ik de redenen achter deze acties, de onderliggende motieven, en hoe dit kenmerkend is voor een nieuwe vorm van fascisme die erop uit is om de macht permanent te grijpen.

Het middenstuk van het boek wijdt zich aan poëzie. Het bevat een prachtige selectie van gedichten uit het Middellandse Zeegebied, van dichters uit Turkije en Griekenland, die gevangen zijn genomen en gemarteld door het regime.

Het laatste deel van mijn boek is een manifest tegen het literaire nihilisme, zoals dat tot uiting komt in het Letterenfonds. Het onthult hoe dit fonds gedomineerd wordt door een groep christenen en ‘wokies’, wat onwenselijk is in een vrije samenleving.

“Amanita Muscaria – The Book of the Empress” is an exceptional work that establishes a benchmark in the realm of mycophilosophy. While one could perhaps categorize the book within the domain of Art History, such a classification would fail to do justice to its true essence. Primarily, this captivating text explores the evolution of humankind, making it a standout in its field.

Amanita Muscaria – The Book of the Empress – De Kaneelfabriek, 2023

Jij hebt geen tijd dit te lezen, maar dat is omdat je allang geen mens meer bent. Leefde er wel nog iets van de originele persoon in jou, de
oude mycelia van de kindertijd, dan zou je van dit boek heel wat opsteken, sterker nog zal het misschien met zijn magische kennis je meest nuttige bezit worden. Een boek over de menselijke fantasie, en
hoe deze in de ijzeren greep wist te raken van transdimensionale kakkerlakken. Voorts ook nog magische tips om je leven en je tijdsversnelling substantieel te verbeteren, en ook maakt M.H.H.Benders nog even luchtig gehakt van de hele Nederlandse literatuur, wat wil je nog meer!
