Poppers Cover
Poppers is a slang term for various alkyl nitrites inhaled for recreational purposes, particularly amyl nitrite, butyl nitrite, isopropyl nitrite and isobutyl nitrite. Amyl nitrite is used medically as an antidote to cyanide poisoning, but the term "poppers" refers specifically to recreational use. Amyl nitrite and several other alkyl nitrites, which are present in products such as air freshener and video head cleaner, are often inhaled with the goal of enhancing sexual pleasure. These products have also been part of the club culture from the 1970s disco scene to the 1980s and 1990s rave scene. Poppers have a long history of abuse due to the rush of warm sensations and dizziness experienced when the vapours are inhaled. Poppers are used recreationally by substance abusers. Poppers have a low risk of harm to society and the individual compared to other recreational drugs; however, serious adverse effects can occur following acute exposure, and with heavy long-term use there is a potential for neurological damage. Swallowing or aspirating the liquid, rather than inhaling the vapours, is particularly dangerous and can prove fatal. Direct, concentrated inhalation of amyl nitrite and the other light alkyl nitrites leads to a non-specific relaxation of smooth muscle, resulting in coronary vasodilation and decreased systemic vascular resistance and left ventricular preload and afterload. In addition, the use of poppers has been associated with an increased risk of HIV infection and AIDS, though research concluded the relationship was not causal and due to the correlation with high-risk sexual behavior.

List Of Chemical Antidotes

List Of Chemical Antidotes Cover

Universal Antidote:

Universal Antidote is a mixture that contains activated charcoal, magnesium oxide, and tannic acid. All three components neutralize the actions of many poisons. It is prepared by mixing "of two parts activated charcoal, one part tannic acid, and one part magnesium oxide intended to be administered to patients who consumed poison. The mixture is ineffective and no longer used; activated charcoal is useful."

Amyl Nitrite:

Amyl nitrite is the chemical compound with the formula C5H11ONO. A variety of isomers are known, but they all feature an amyl group attached to the nitrito functional group. The alkyl group is unreactive and the chemical and biological properties are mainly due to the nitrite group. Like other alkyl nitrites, amyl nitrite is bioactive in mammals, being a vasodilator, which is the basis of its use as a prescription medicine.


Flumazenil (also known as flumazepil, code name Ro 15-1788, trade names Anexate, Lanexat, Mazicon, Romazicon) is a benzodiazepine antagonist. It was introduced in 1987 by Hoffmann-La Roche under the trade name Anexate.


Silibinin, also known as silybin, is the major active constituent of silymarin, the mixture of flavonolignans extracted from blessed milk thistle (Silybum marianum) consisting of silibinin A and B, isosibilinin A and B, silicristin, silidianin. Both in vitro and animal research suggest that silibinin has hepatoprotective (antihepatotoxic) properties that protect liver cells against toxins.

Ethyl Nitrite:

ethyl nitrite is an alkyl nitrite. It may be prepared from ethanol.


Fomepizole or 4-methylpyrazole is indicated for use as an antidote in confirmed or suspected methanol or ethylene glycol poisoning. It may be used alone or in combination with hemodialysis. Apart from medical uses, the role of 4-methylpyrazole in coordination chemistry has been studied.


Anticurare refers to the ability of drugs to reverse the muscle paralysis produced by curare. Examples of drugs with anticurare properties include neostigmine, pyridostigmine and edrophonium.


Bromhexine is a mucolytic agent used in the treatment of respiratory disorders associated with viscid or excessive mucus. In addition, bromhexine has antioxidant properties.

Sch 50911:

SCH-50911 is a selective GABAB antagonist developed by Schering-Plough Corporation. Its main applications are in pharmacology research, but it has been found to quickly and effectively reverse the symptoms of GHB overdose in mice. In one experiment, mice were given a lethal dose of GHB (7000mg/kg) followed by varying doses of SCH-50911. At the two higher doses of the antagonist (150mg/kg and 300mg/kg), only 2 out of 20 of the mice died (10%), compared to 100% lethality in the control group.


Dimercaprol or British anti-Lewisite (abbreviated BAL), is a compound developed by British biochemists at Oxford University during World War II. It was developed secretly as an antidote for Lewisite, the now-obsolete arsenic-based chemical warfare agent. Today, it is used medically in treatment of arsenic, mercury, gold and lead, and other toxic metal poisoning.

Aurea Alexandrina:

Aurea Alexandrina, in pharmacy, was a kind of opiate or antidote, in great fame among ancient writers. It is called Aurea from the gold which enters its composition, and Alexandrina as having been first invented by a physician named Alexander. It was reputed a good preservative against the colic and apoplexy.

4 Dimethylaminophenol:

4-Dimethylaminophenol (abbreviated in medical practice as DMAP) is an aromatic compound containing both phenol and amine functional groups. It has the molecular formula C8H11NO.


BIMU-8 is a drug which acts as a 5-HT4 receptor selective agonist. BIMU-8 was one of the first compounds of this class. The main action of BIMU-8 is to increase the rate of respiration by activating an area of the brain stem known as the pre-Botzinger complex.


Deferasirox (marketed as Exjade) is a rationally-designed oral iron chelator. Its main use is to reduce chronic iron overload in patients who are receiving long-term blood transfusions for conditions such as beta-thalassemia and other chronic anemias. It is the first oral medication approved in the USA for this purpose. It was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in November 2005.


Deferiprone (tradenames include Ferriprox) is an oral drug that chelates iron and is used to treat thalassaemia major. It is currently licensed for use in Europe and Asia, but not in Canada and the United States.


Poppers is a slang term for various alkyl nitrites inhaled for recreational purposes, particularly amyl nitrite, butyl nitrite, isopropyl nitrite and isobutyl nitrite. Amyl nitrite is used medically as an antidote to cyanide poisoning, but the term "poppers" refers specifically to recreational use. Amyl nitrite and several other alkyl nitrites, which are present in products such as air freshener and video head cleaner, are often inhaled with the goal of enhancing sexual pleasure.

Mark I Naak:

The Mark I NAAK, or MARK I Kit, is United States military nomenclature for the "Nerve Agent Antidote Kit". It is a dual-chamber autoinjector: Two anti-nerve agent drugs - atropine sulfate and pralidoxime chloride - each in injectable form, constitute the kit. The kits are only effective against the nerve agents Tabun (GA), Sarin (GB), Soman (GD) and VX. Typically, U.S.

, methyl nitrite is the simplest alkyl nitrite.

Ethylenediaminetetraacetic Acid:

Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, widely abbreviated as EDTA (for other names, see Table) is a polyamino carboxylic acid and a colourless, water-soluble solid. Its conjugate base is named ethylenediaminetetraacetate. It is widely used to dissolve scale. Its usefulness arises because of its role as a hexadentate ("six-toothed") ligand and chelating agent, i.e. its ability to "sequester" metal ions such as Ca and Fe.

Sodium Nitrite:

Sodium nitrite, with chemical formula NaNO2, is used as a color fixative and preservative in meats and fish. When pure, it is a white to slight yellowish crystalline powder. It is very soluble in water and is hygroscopic. It is also slowly oxidized by oxygen in the air to sodium nitrate, NaNO3. The compound is a strong oxidizing agent.


Deferoxamine (also known as desferrioxamine B, desferoxamine B, DFO-B, DFOA, DFB or desferal) is a bacterial siderophore produced by the actinobacter Streptomyces pilosus. It has medical applications as a chelating agent used to remove excess iron from the body. The mesylate salt of DFO-B is commercially available.

isopropyl nitrite (or propyl nitrite) is an alkyl nitrite made from isopropanol

Cyclohexyl Nitrite:

The chemical compound cyclohexyl nitrite is an alkyl nitrite made from cyclohexanol. It acts as an antianginal.

Protamine Sulfate:

Protamine sulfate is a drug that reverses the anticoagulant effects of heparin by binding to it. Protamine was originally isolated from the sperm of sharks and other species of fish but is now produced primarily through recombinant biotechnology. It is a highly cationic peptide. It binds to heparin to form a stable ion pair which does not have anticoagulant activity; on its own, protamine has a weak anticoagulant effect.

Snake Stones:

Snake-stones also known as the viper's stone, black stone, the black stone, der schwarze Stein, la pierre noire, and la piedrita negra or serpent-stone are animal bones, which are widely used and promoted as a treatment for snake bite in Africa, South America and Asia. No scientific study is known which shows this remedy to be effective.


Oxilorphan is an opioid antagonist from the morphinan family of drugs. Oxilorphan is a non-selective opioid which is a antagonist but a partial agonist. It has similar effects to naloxone, and around the same potency as an antagonist. Oxilorphan has some weak partial agonist effects and can produce hallucinogenic effects at high doses, suggesting some kappa opioid agonist action. It was trialled for the treatment of opiate addiction, but was not developed commercially.

Ro15 4513:

Ro15-4513 is a weak partial inverse agonist of the benzodiazepine class of drugs, developed by Hoffmann-La Roche in 1984, and is structurally related to the benzodiazepine antidote flumazenil.


Nantenine is an alkaloid found in the plant Nandina domestica as well as some Corydalis species. It is an antagonist at both the 1 adrenergic receptor and the 5-HT2A serotonin receptor, and blocks both the behavioural and physiological effects of MDMA in animals.

Alejandro Jodorowsky

Alejandro Jodorowsky Cover
Alejandro Jodorowsky (born 7 February 1929) is a Chilean filmmaker, playwright, composer and writer. Best known for his avant-garde films, he has been "venerated by cult cinema enthusiasts" for his work which "is filled with violently surreal images and a hybrid blend of mysticism and religious provocation. " His most notable works include El Topo (1970), The Holy Mountain (1973) and Santa Sangre (1989), all of which have had limited release but achieved popularity amongst various countercultural groups. He has cited the filmmaker Federico Fellini as his primary cinematic influence, and has been described as an influence on such figures as Marilyn Manson and David Lynch. Jodorowsky is also a playwright and play director, having produced over one hundred plays, primarily in Mexico where he lived for much of his life. Alongside this he is also a writer, particularly of comic books - his The Incal even has been noted as having a claim to be "the best comic book" ever written - as well as books on his own theories about spirituality. Jodorowsky has been involved in the occult and various spiritual and religious groups, including Zen Buddhism and forms of Mexican shamanism, and has formulated his own spiritual system, which he has called "psychomagic" and "psychoshamanism".

The Hermetic Brotherhood Of Luxor

The Hermetic Brotherhood Of Luxor Cover

The Occult Society:

"In 1870 (and not in 1884, as the Theosophists claimed), an adept of calm, of the ever-existing ancient Order of the H. B. of L., after having received the consent of his fellow-initiates, decided to choose in Great Britain a neophyte who would answer his designs. He landed in Great Britain in 1873. There he discovered a neophyte who satisfied his requirements and he gradually instructed him. Later, the actual neophyte received permission to establish the Exterior Circle of the H. B. of L." The adept in the above paragraph (from the introduction by Pascal Themanlys to the book Visions of the Eternal Present) is Max Theon, at the time a mere 22 years of age. I assume the disciple referred to is Peter Davidson (1842-1916), a Scottish philosopher. In London Theon was the Grand Master of the H. B. of L. - Exterior Circle of the Holy Brotherhood of Luxor, and Davidson, its visible head. One of Davidson's other teachers was the Rosicrucian external link Hargrave Jennings (c. 1817 - 1890). were joined in 1883 by Thomas H. Burgoyne (AKA Thomas Dalton, 1855-1895). The function of this "Outer Circle" of the H. B. of L. was to offer a correspondence course on practical occultism; which set it apart from the Theosophical Society. Its curriculum included a number of selections from the writings of Hargrave Jennings and Paschal Beverly Randolph. Theon and Davidson were heirs to an already established tradition, influences of which go back at least to Rosicrucian-Freemasonic ideas and movements of the eighteenth century. There are in fact a number of different, if related and overlapping, references here. As T Allen Greenfield points out, there seems to be "a parallel tradition running through the eighteenth century Fratres Lucis and Asiatic Brethren on the one hand, and Cagliostro's Egyptian Rite (androgynous) Freemasonry on the other. These fuse with primordial Egyptian traditions during the Napoleonic conquests in Egypt, passed on to Metamon, Theon, Levi, Randolph, Davidson and other nineteenth century luminaries, down to Papus, Reuss, Kellner and, eventually, Aleister Crowley and his successors and heirs within OTO." Thus Theon and Davidson and the H. B. of L. had an influence not only on Theosophy but also, directly and indirectly, with the OTO and hence Steiner (who was a member before the OTO became mostly thelemite), Crowley and most of modern occultism. "The interior Circle of the H. B. of L. was formed within a distinct Hermetic Order in consequence of a division that took place in the ranks of the Hermetic Initiates. This division was the outcome of the natural difference between the initiates belonging to the Sacerdotal Caste and those who were seriously tested and graduated in the schools of occultism." In the last decades of the 19th century, the Order of the The Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor had considerable influence in all the milieu of Western occultism. It was the only order of its time that taught practical occultism in the Western Mystery Tradition. This very secretive order, which counted among its members many of the well-known figures of late 19th-century occultism, spiritualism, and Theosophy. The researcher, G. Marvin Williams, wrote that Madam Blavalsky's claim of being involved with the H.B. of L. was just a creation of imagination designed to gain publicity. But, despite Marvin's scepticism, Madam Blavatsky was indeed a member of the Order. In later years, Peter Davidson emigrated to the United States and there published several books. While in 1889 some the H.B. of L. material in the form of lessons by Burgoyne was published as The Light of Egypt, minus only the practical teachings.

The Charter:

The charter of the Ancient and Noble Order of H. B. of L. which was signed: "M. Theon, Grand Master pro temp of the Exterior Circle," contains high principles and important data: "We recognize the eternal existence of the Great Cause of Light, the invisible center whose vibrating soul, gloriously radiant, is the living breath, the vital principle of all that exists and will ever exist. It is from this divine summit that goes forth the invisible Power which binds the vast universe in an harmonious whole." "We teach that from this incomprehensible center of Divinity emanate sparks of the eternal Spirit,which,after accomplishing their orbit, the great cycle of Necessity, constitute the sole immortal element of the human soul. Accepting thus the universal brotherhood of humanity, we reject, nevertheless,the doctrine of universal quality." "We have no personal preferences and no one makes progress in "the Order without having accomplished his assigned task thereby indicating aptitude for more advanced initiation." "Remember, we teach freely, without reservation, anyone worthy of instruction." "The Order devotes its energies and resources to discover and apply the hidden laws and active forces in all fields of nature, and to subjugate them to the higher will of the human soul, whose power and attributes our Order strives to develop, in order to build up the immortal individuality so that the complete spirit can say I AM." "The members engage themselves, to the best of their ability, in a life of moral purity and brotherly love, abstaining from the use of intoxicants except for medicinal purposes, working for the progress of all social reforms beneficial for humanity." "Finally, the members have full freedom of thought and judgment. By no means may one member be disrespectful towards members of other religious beliefs or impose his own convictions on others." "Each member of our ancient and noble Order has to maintain, human dignity by living as an example of purity, justice and goodwill. No matter what the circumstances may be, one can become a living center of goodness, radiating virtue, nobility and truth."

The T. S. verses the H. B. of L:

According to William Emmette Coleman: In 1875 Mme. B. had claimed to be in communication with an Egyptian Lodge, called the Brotherhood of Luxor, composed of "Adepts" or "Brothers"; Masters in magical lore, and she also caused Olcott to believe that one or more of these "Brothers" had accepted him as a pupil, and that certain communications to him purporting to come from them, and received by the Colonel through her, were the veritable productions of these "Adepts." Olcott asserts that one of them once visited him in his room in a materialized astral form, and as proof of his objectivity left with him his headcovering, which the Colonel retains to this day. The indication here is that the Theosophical doctrine of Masters is directly based on the H. B. of L. Later however Blavatsky accused that magical order of swindling money from the gullible. The definition in the on-line Encyclopedic Theosophical Glossary: defines the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor as "a spurious "esoteric" society started about 1884 in England, which later spread to America before it was exposed as a fraud in Yorkshire by theosophists around 1887," and that in August, 1887, Burgoyne "issued to the members a secret circular, the essence of which was that he had studied Chaldean Astrology for eighteen years, but could not communicate the 'lessons' in it and Occultism without a payment to him of $60; that his teachings had the full approval of the Masters...He was 28 years old at the time. He later published the same material in a book, external link The Light of Egypt, sold for $3.00." We have seeen that the H. B. of L. was established in 1870, although perhaps it (as the O.T.O. historical documents suggest) only emerged publicly at the later date. Another minor point: if Burgoyne was born in 1855 than in 1887 he was 32, not 28. The reference to the "Masters" is interesting because it seems that the H. B. of L. is where Blavatsky originally developed the idea from. One wonders how much of this material is genuine, and how much slander. There was certainly an ideological difference (apart from her short-lived "Esoteric Section", Blavatsky was very much against teaching practical occultism, considering it too dangerous), and in Lodges of Magic Blavatsky warns members of Randolph and other love-philter sellers. This is evident in a number of letters abnd represents a long-running feud, at leats on Blavatsky's part. For example in a letter A. P. Sinnett, Blavatsky warns him of the "Hindu Brotherhood of Luxor with Davison in it and others working now in the U.S. against us." It is interesting that most of the few hits on the Web for the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor are Theosophical propaganda of this nature; this stemming perhaps from a number of factors: a falling out between Blavatsky and Theon, and also clearly the puritan theosophists dislike of the controversial sex-magician Randolph who seems to have been associated (rightly or wrongly) with the love-philter con-artists and other quacks that would have been quite numerous at that time.

Love's Alchemy opens the door onto Rumi's colleagues in the Persian mystical tradition. Translated from the classical Persian by husband and wife team of David and Sabrineh Fideler, Love's Alchemy includes selections from all the major Persian Sufi poets, some of whom are famous in the West, such as Hafiz Hafiz (hafez`) [Arab.,=one who has memorized the Qur'an], 1319–1389?, Persian lyric poet, b. Shiraz. His original name was Shams al-Din Muhammad. He acquired the surname from having memorized the Qur'an at an early age. , but many of whom are not. This is not the kind of poetry book one reads quickly, absorbing feelings and images. Rather, the poems in Love's Alchemy are like a fine merlot, meant to be imbibed slowly--you begin by sniffing their aroma; then hold them up to the light and savor their color; inhale their bouquet; hold the words in your mouth, let the taste of them sink into your pores; feel them warming your throat, let their wisdom spread through your veins and into the depths of your heart. This is how they were meant to be read--and re-read--with thought and reflection that allow the poems to challenge the reader's perception of the worldly and the divine, with a sudden gestalt Gestalt (g?shtalt`) [Ger.,=form], school of psychology that interprets phenomena as organized wholes rather than as aggregates of distinct parts, maintaining that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. of insight, with depth of feeling, and with appreciation for the many layers of meaning contained in each phrase.

With the literal translation the reader has an immediate, intuitive grasp of the poem's meaning akin to the flash of insight one gets while reading a haiku haiku (hi`k), an unrhymed Japanese poem recording the essence of a moment keenly perceived, in which nature is linked to human nature. .
