@AspiringLuddite, I saw that today.

One wonders if hashish was involved in its creation. Or a really warped mind pulling a practical joke for the ages.

@herveus
Who knows? ;-)

I like the article as well for it's analysis of the pitfalls of historical research and the importance of critical thinking. It's part of a continuing discussion of how parts of the past are being appropriated by eg white nationalists as a rationale for all sorts of horrible things.

@AspiringLuddite yes. The article did a decent job of covering the subject. My musing on hashish was related to the creation of the manuscript itself.
