For millennia, humans have cultivated relationships with psychoactive plants and fungi â€" relationships embedded within and guided by ritual frameworks honoring the powers of these plants and fungi as allies. As cultures have evolved, so also have these plant-fungal-human interactions. Our current era is one of reduction of organisms to molecules, and the commodification of just about everything that is marketable. How might ritual and respect be maintained in the presence of reduction and commodification?
