P.D. Newman’s bold and daring theory provides a radical interpretation of Masonic symbolism. In the tradition of Wasson, Hofmann and Ruck, in “”The Road to Eleusis: Unveiling the Secret of the Mysteries”” (1978), and Heinrich’s “”Strange Fruit: Alchemy, Religion, and Magical Foods”” (1995), Newman suggests that practical psychoactive pharmacology, rather than philosophy, lies concealed in the root of some of our allegories and mysteries.
