I am the lovers gift, and I am the wedding wreath. I am the memory of a moment of happiness, and I am a part of sorrow.

But I only look up high, to see the light from above, and never look down to see my own shadow. This is the wisdom which man must learn. via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1QZfQYh

The end of the journey was at this moment a fact. Now it was only a matter of time before the first man would personally experience extraterrestrial contact. The illuminated light beams spread on the deserted field, the air quivered, and there was a noisy silence, filled with the underlying fact that everything as we understood it, soon was to change… via Tumblr http://bit.ly/1Z46pHT

New on 500px : Fungus fable by Vahlenkamp by Vahlenkamp

These mushrooms also called fly agaric, were in historic time effectively used by the Vikings, when they were getting ready to invade a land. The Vikings essentially turned off their fear emotions, thus gaining their reputation for their fierceness.
The people of many cultures of northern Europe lived in constant fear of invasion. Vikings where known to enter a village fearlessly, wreak havoc among the people and carry off the women.
Before entering battle, the Vikings would go through a religious ritual in which they would dance around the woods and consume Amanita muscaria. So the main reason the Vikings were able to fight without fear is that they were on drugs. For this reason the Vikings were also known as the berserkers. It is also worth mentioning that they had a strong belief in going to Wallhall after death (supposedly a great place to be for great warriors). via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1NBFpKH
