Newgrange Incubation

But the interesting thing about Newgrange is the evidence that steam cymatics were generated from chanting and used together with a psychedelic communion as part of a winter solstice ceremony.

In his book "The Long Trip: A Prehistory of Pschedelia," Paul Devereux finds engraved lozenges, spirals, triple spirals and other patterns carved into stones in the entrance passage and main chamber. He then connects this to large stone dishes that probably contained water that was heated during rituals to produce steam.

As he describes it, Newgrange was a kind of psychedelic sweat lodge. The droplets of moisture in the steam (like aerosol components) would have vibrated with the resonant chanting within the chamber to form floating wave patterns in the air. These would then show up when subjected to a lightbeam, in this case a beam of flickering light shining through a shaft aligned with the solstice sun. These patterns are similar to the patterns carved on the walls.

According to Devereux, "In this scenario we can see the combination of at least five mind-altering techniques: the use of a hallucinogen, be it psilocybin mushrooms, an ergot derivative, or henbane, taken at the start of a long initial period of sensory-deprivation in the silent blackness of the chamber, followed by prolonged resonant chanting in a sweat-lodge type of hot steamy atmosphere, culminating in powerful flickering light."

As this is happening, the 110Hz resonant chanting would switch the brain to an intuitive right-brain mode and the psychoactive communion would combine with the harmonic sunlight patterns to help induce religious visions. This blending of acoustics, music, light, chemicals, isolation, ritual, symbols and meditation are just one example of an advanced psychonautic science and technology used by our ancestors to explore the deeper, non-physical aspects of reality.
