Ah, the fly agaric mushroom! Iconic, hallucinogenic, cosmopolitan. The fly agaric is the platonic ideal of mushrooms. Not merely a default visual, but the pinnacle of mushrooms. A bright red that draws the eye, a beacon in a dark forest.
It guides your way like the Russian fairy tale figure Old Man Muhomor (the mushroom’s Russian name), a little old gnome with a long white beard and big fly agaric cap, whose purpose is to help the lost find their way. Or like the deliriant effects sought by shamans near and far, and by the people who drank their urine, which contained the euphoric compound not broken down by their bodies.
