Yes indeed my ancestors were very intelligent people. They only used those mushrooms for special occasions to communicate better with the spirit world not for every day recreation. Now if they had only been less wiling to accept gifts of blankets and booze from strangers history might have come out a lot differently. Anyone can talk to animals. The tricky thing is learning to hear them when they talk to us. Sometimes the animals talk more sensibly and clearly than some humans. They are honest and clear in their communication.
I tend to be more tolerable of animal behavior than human behavior for those very reasons
