Plato's three colors for Atlantis

The stone which was used in the work they quarried from underneath the centre island, and from underneath the zones, on the outer as well as the inner side. One kind was white, another black, and a third red, and as they quarried, they at the same time hollowed out double docks, having roofs formed out of the native rock.
Critias - by Plato [360 BC]

White, red and black the colors named by Plato as the colors of Atlantis!

Thanks to "justinjbrown" and "hunchback" at the Gnostic Media forum for this info.

Not experienced with Amanita muscaria, although ubiquitously seen in countless illustrated children's storybooks as a convenient piece of cushy furniture for one species or another of the Fae, I have been told it holds a pronouncedly more caustic psychedelic trip that its more pallid cousin, Psilocybe cubensis. Then again, I'm sure that the celebrated mycologist & entheobotanist, the late, great R. Gordon Wasson, must've had experienced a slightly different form of it when first having been introduced to the eefects of the Magic Mushroom by his wife in the mountains of upstate New York, all those many decades ago.
