Geocache Description:

Aldeia dos Cogumelos Mágicos

Os cogumelos Mágicos, conhecido também como cogumelos psicadélicos são fungos com propriedades alucinógenas, utilizados por diversos povos em suas actividades culturais, bem como drogas recreativas, especialmente por jovens urbanos influenciados por diversos movimentos culturais.

Os cogumelos ou fungos, uma vez que não possuem clorofila, não se alimentam de luz solar como as outras plantas. Em alternativa, funcionam como parasitas de outras plantas e animais ou instalam-se em meios com matéria em decomposição.

Os cogumelos alucinógenos eram usados no México, Guatemala e Amazonas em rituais religiosos e por curandeiros. Os Maias utilizavam um fungo ao qual chamavam, na língua nahuátl, teonanácatl (a "carne de deus") há já 3500 anos. As primeiras referências ao seu consumo foram encontradas em livros (1502), nos quais era mencionado o uso de cogumelos em rituais nas festas de coroação de Moctezuma, o último imperador Azteca.

Provavelmente, o cogumelo alucinogéneo mais popular é o Amanita muscaria, descrito por Lewis Carroll no livro Alice no Pais das Maravilhas. Este cogumelo é usado há mais de 6000 anos, sendo, por vezes, confundido com variedades muito semelhantes mas letais.

Magic mushrooms, also known as psychedelic mushrooms are fungi with hallucinogenic properties used by various peoples in their cultural activities as well as recreational drugs, especially by urban youths influenced by various cultural movements.

Mushrooms or fungi, since they do not have chlorophyll, do not feed on sunlight like other plants. Alternatively, they act as parasites of other plants and animals or settle in media with decaying matter.

Hallucinogenic mushrooms were used in Mexico, Guatemala and Amazonas in religious rituals and by healers. The Mayans used a fungus which they called the Teonanacatl (the "flesh of God") in the Nahuatl language, 3500 years ago. The first references to its consumption were found in books (1502), in which the use of mushrooms in rituals was mentioned in the coronation feasts of Moctezuma, the last Aztec emperor.

Probably the most popular hallucinogenic mushroom is the Amanita muscaria, described by Lewis Carroll in the book Alice in Wonderland. This mushroom has been used for more than 6000 years sometimes being confused with very similar but lethal varieties.
