I'm sorry if this subject has been discussed already, I thought I saw a thread about this before but I can't seem to find it. Does anyone know what Soma really is? I have asked some of my professors this question but they very vague or know nothing about it. I Terence McKenna discusses it in Food of The Gods. If I remember correctly his theory was that Soma was mushrooms that contained psilocybin that grew in the dung of cows, and I think they were also preserved in honey, then ingested during ceremonies. I think he also thought that this was a contributing factor as to why cows are considered sacred... :bugeye: It's been a while since I have read any of his material. (Sorry if I misunderstood or misstated any of his ideas) Do you think this theory has any merit? What really is Soma?
