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.

The discover bloke was quite high , about 2000 ft OD .

Must be a star map then :-)

I got a bollocking from a bloke on Bodmin moor when I was drawing back the grass layer off a stone. I said don't worry I'm doing it very carefully and not damaging any archaeology. Archaeology? he said, I'm thinking of the insect life beneath it!!
