The Mushroom Disciples

If Jesus was a mushroom ( hypothesized to be Amanita muscaria), this begs the question, who were his disciples?

Here I put forth 12 medicinal mushrooms used since time immemorial on the Great Path to Immortality and Perfect Physical Health.

These mushrooms are meticulously scientifically studied for their medicinal and therpeautic benefits and selected for their role in this collection based on the work of Kris Rowsan and his book The Mushroom Medicine Cabinet.

These 12 represent not just a tline of medicinal mushrooms, but the totality of the Logos and the condensation of Cosmic Signatures into a singular medicinal mushroom collection, the Disciplic Mushrooms. Every species was syncretized with the perennial philosophy to correspond to the Doctrine of Signatures. The archetypes of the celestial mechanics themselves are captured by the various mushrooms and corresponded based on their affinities. Please enjoy this perennial Mushroom collection and  synchronization between the hidden Gnostic gospels, occult biblical interpretation, Alchemical allegory of the Soul, and modern chemistry and botanical information.
