Lightbulb Mandrake

In a fairy tale, Princess Moanna, whose father is the king of the underworld, visits the human world, where the sunlight blinds her and erases her memory. She becomes very ill and eventually dies; whereafter the king believes that her spirit will return to the underworld..There, she meets the faun, who believes her to be Princess Moanna and gives her 3 tasks to complete before the full moon...

Mandrake is the common name for members of the plant genus Mandragora, particularly the species Mandragora officinarum, belonging to the nightshades family (Solanaceae). Because mandrake contains deliriant hallucinogenic tropane alkaloids such as atropine, scopolamine, apoatropine, and hyoscyamine, and the roots sometimes contain bifurcations causing them to resemble human figures, their roots have long been used in magic rituals, today also in contemporary pagan traditions such as Wicca and Odinism..Mandrake the Magician is a comic strip, created by Lee Falk (before he created The Phantom).. Its publication began June 11, 1934.. when Mandrake "gestures hypnotically", his subjects see illusions...

It was written by John Marco Allegro (1923–1988)..The book relates the development of language to the development of myths, religions, and cultic practices in world cultures. Allegro believed he could prove, through etymology, that the roots of Christianity, as of many other religions, lay in fertility cults, and that cult practices, such as ingesting visionary plants (or "psychedelics") to perceive the mind of God, persisted into the early Christian era, and to some unspecified extent into the 13th century with reoccurrences in the 18th century and mid-20th century, as he interprets the Plaincourault chapel's fresco to be an accurate depiction of the ritual ingestion of Amanita muscaria as the Eucharist... went down South and crossed the border Left the chaos and disorder Back there over his shoulder..And in the labyrinth of streams beneath, the quiet unearthly presence of gentle hill dwellers, in the gentle hills around..Reptiles abounding Fossils, caves, cool air heights Rugs silent, mirrors vacant,dust blind under the beds of lawful couples Wound in sheets and daughters, smug With semen eyes in their nipples...
