AYAHUASCA

EIGHT CHAPTER:
"THE EYES OF THE ANT"

Narby, sitting at home in the garden next to his children, began to imagine thousands of million kilometres of DNA that surrounded him:

"The DNA molecule, about ten atoms wide, is a kind of ultimate technology; it is organic and so miniaturized that it approaches the very limits of material existence."

He interpreted that the spirit of living species alluded by Ayahuasqueros, which has consciousness and spirit and sees it all, and that they can perceive when they are deeply intoxicated, is simply DNA.

We transcribe a fragment of his account:

"Lost in thought I stared at the grass and began to follow a black and shiny ant that made its way through the lawn. It crossed the thick grass with the determination of an agile tank and moved towards the tree at the back of the garden that sheltered a colony of ant cows. This ant actually belonged to a species that raised and milked ant cows for their sugary secretions.

I began to think about the fact that this ant had a different visual system than mine but it apparently worked as well. Despite our differences in size and shape, both had been built due to instructions written in the same language - a language we were incapable of seeing, since DNA is smaller than visible light, even for the eyes of an ant. I found it interesting that the language which contained the instructions for the elaboration of different visual systems was in itself not visible. It was as if the instructions had to be hidden from their beneficiaries; as if we were wired in such a way that we could not perceive the wires…

Why?

I tried again to approach the subject from a shaman point of view. It was as if those beings inside us wanted to hide… But that is what the Ashaninkas say! They call those invisible beings that have created life 'Maninkari', literally 'Those who are hidden'!"


With Ayahuasca, in that alternate state of consciousness it brings about, Ayahuasqueros perceive all surrounding nature as colour lights with sound.

They compare their visions with a TV screen. For that reason Ayahuasca is also known as jungle TV.

Narby makes an evaluation of the functions of his own eyes and finds an extremely sophisticated organic technology.

This system of miniature muscles and glands, highly sophisticated, gives us an image of reality, processed in our own brain. But we can never know which the true reality is or how others see it.

Sight plays a very important part in learning through Ayahuasca. As we get deeper into alternate states of consciousness, we learn to handle better this hidden capability of perceiving what we cannot see in a normal state.

The World is an immense network full of life orchestrated by DNA.

From unicellular beings to the ozone layer that protects our genetic substance from sun rays and makes the atmosphere breathable. Anaerobic bacteria at the bottom of the sea. Everything that is alive contains DNA.

This DNA network encircles the Earth.

In this chapter Narby refers to a description by a Shipibo-Conibo Ayahuasquero, Luis Ancon, of his perception of the World:

"The Earth we live in is a disk swimming in big waters. The serpent of the World, "Ronin", half-way submerged, entirely surrounds it."

Narby finds here a direct analogy between DNA encircling the Earth and that cosmic serpent alluded by Ayahuasqueros.





Still with many unknown issues to solve, Narby starts a series of inquiries and realizes that in most cultures of the World the serpent is presented as a source of knowledge. Even in places where this animal is not commonly known, they are present in their ideological world, such as it happens in Siberia, where serpent designs can be seen on shaman clothes.
