Bufotenine

April 12, 2008

While watching Cane Toads: An Unnatural History, we realized there could be a relationship between the Bufo Toad toxins and VF.  Not only is there a similarity in the bufotenine molecule, 5-hydroxy-DMT, but experiential reports of distortions in the senses of time and space, instantaneous transportational perception and  color hallucinations would seem to confirm the analogous relationship. The Bufo Toad toxin secreted by glands in the toad’s shoulders and then boiled down, crystallized and safely smoked by hippies in communes.

The other ingestive alternative known as “licking toad” runs the risk of severe neurological effects such as paralysis, seizures, blurred vision, and dizziness. We should also consider the possibility that distorted time and space affect of imbibing bufotenine might be related to the “transference” of the toad’s seemingly aimless patterns of mobility as well as the “hopping” effect of teleporting in SL. This could be a fruitful approach for further study with respect to the digital form of VF.
