As someone who used to pick grocery sacks full of psilocybin and indulge in their experience back in the 1970's, I find it very curious that the Sumerian symbol for "see" and "eye" is a mushroom (or umbrella) if that is your thing. I also find it compelling in that I teach an art student named Ayla (notice the eye) who used to use mushroom and eyes on everything she made. She's dropped the mushroom now, but lots of eyes on her surreal figures.

Personally, I believe it must me a mushroom, but I'm wondering if any of you have thoughts as to why this particular symbol is used for eye and see.
