This is an adventure in science and imagination which tracks a young French anthropologist through the Amazonian rain forests, the libraries of Europe and the world's most arcane scientific journals, following strange clues, intuitions and extraordinary coincidences, to reveal scientific data.;The beginning of Narby's exploration lay with the Peruvian Indians, who claim that their knowledge of chemistry has its origins in plant-induced hallucinations. He also demonstrates that indigenous and ancient peoples have known for millennia, and have even drawn, the double-helix structure, something conventional science discovered only in 1953. The book opens new perspectives on biology, anthropology and the limits of rationalism.
