Mythical Mushroom "soma"

Mythical Mushroom "soma"
There is talk of there being a powerful God-mushroom, from which came the knowledge of God and the nature of the universe. This mushroom is frequently called Soma. This mushroom is frequently attributed (I believe falsely) to the variety Amanita muscaria, Fly agaric.

Early Christian Iconography, particularly at the Aquileia bascilica, shows a mushroom with a cap like Amanita muscaria but with a yellow stem like Amanita cesarea. It also implied there was a psychedelic breed of snails which they also consumed.

Let's look at a few images:

I do not believe that the mythical mushroom Soma exists, nor as I stated earlier, do I believe that it is simply Amanita muscaria. Rather I contend that there is an alchemical mixture to create the psychoactive God-substance, Soma. I am not a brave enough shaman to attempt to create and experience this Soma just yet, but perhaps if I can assemble the material in the future I will attempt it. I believe that through that last image and some mycological sluething, I have unearthed this alchemical recipe for Soma and I am sharing it with you all.

Lesser known than Amanita muscaria is another psychedelic Amanita, Amanita gemmata. This is a psychedelic mushroom that is small and pale brown in colour. I believe this is the first mushroom in the series of four underneath the image of Jesus.

The second mushroom, the one that is orange in colour, is probably the mushroom Gymnopilus luteofolius. More commonly known as the Yellow-gilled Gymnopilus. It is known in Japan as waraitake, which translates to laughing mushroom. It is another psilocybe.

The blue mushroom I believe is the standard Psilocybe cubensis, or some regional variation thereof. My main motivation being that the particularly psychoactive and therefore desirable varieties become quite blue.

The final red mushroom is surely Amanita muscaria.

I have only heard of Fly agaric being referred to as Soma, and have never seen a recipe for its creation. This I don't understand. Anyone with experience in shrooms knows that they synchronize their effects with other psychoactive chemicals in the body quite well. I think that imagery clearly shows that the early theologians were experimenting with many mushrooms, not just one. This is why I propose the alchemical mixing of the many.

I am not sure if it would be possible for early Christians to obtain all of these varieties, but I'm also convinced that international trading was capable of quite a bit, even in those times. Possibly, someone could prove my theory inaccurate but insofar as I've been able to research this topic, this is the recipe I have come up with.

I know that many of these mushrooms contain the same psychoactive compounds, namely psilocin, psilocybin and muscimol. However, there are lesser compounds like Ibotenic acid that contribute to the effects and I believe, though I emphasize the conjecture, that this particular combination would yield an ideal combination of psychoactive compounds resulting in the God-trip.

I do not recommend that anyone try this mixture, as it could possibly be incredibly powerful and in a lesser extent, punishing to the digestive system and the Amanita genus is considered supremely toxic. It is merely information and conjecture. I propose it only because I believe, if a little arrogantly, that I have unearthed something mystical and ancient here. I wanted to share it with you all.
