i wasnt joking, I would genuinely like to see photos of the 20 things you say are depicted on panels that you dont need mushrooms for. Give us the pics, thats all, words are so much less illustrative.

And no, Im not decrying 'shrooms as an aid to looking at rock art. Take this panel http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/tayside_and_central/8205035.stm
Dunno if the discoverer bloke was high but its a fact that if you are you realise the panel is four dimensional.... The 4th dimension is TIME. And thats important. The marks could have been added progressively over several thousand years so looking them as a whole may be looking at them wrong, and saying they are a star map or a spring map or whatever could be a big mistake, albeit understandable at first sight.

Talk about looking at things with modern eyes, everything i listed WOULD have meant something real in their day to day lives, they would know where I'm coming from, they would have no understanding of a 4 th dimension of time or any dimension for that matter, physical world/ spirit world maybe and of cause things would be added over time as things change over time, the landscape started to change so much because of us as well, do you really think the ancients were quantum physicists? i do not!!! and i doubt "you know who" was high, because if he was he may understand that world a lot more, just because he can find them doesn't mean he understands them at all.
