Hi Andrew,

I get where you are going with this, but think it's premature to say that "in fact" we can be certain of such things. Nonetheless, as I suggested to Greg, it does seem highly likely that the ancients would have had a very well developed sense of where substances led, if they incorporated them into shamanic rituals that may have spanned ages.
