FOURTH CHAPTER:
"FULFILMENT IN RIO"

After almost two years of living together with the Ashaninkas, at the end of 1986, Narby returned to Switzerland to write his dissertation paper. After obtaining his PhD, feeling deeply involved with the problems faced by the indigenous peoples of the Peruvian Amazon to save their land, he turned his eyes to those plants able to communicate. So he worked on a project for four years, including the propagation of knowledge he had acquired during his life with the Ashaninkas. However, he refused to deal with certain topics.

And so came the Cumbre de la Tierra in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992.

Narby saw a favourable and adequate context to expose his ideas without being called a madman, which he had not done before. However he was surprised to learn that despite the habitual use of medicinal plants to cure diseases by tribal societies in Brazil, very few people referred to the visionary effects of master plants. Those who accepted these qualities did not dare say so.

This led him to the conclusion that his trip deserved an exhaustive study to throw light on the topic. Thus, Narby decided to write the book we are currently analysing.
