new word proposal: plants and animals

So this was originally just going to be the twenty or so types of organism in Minecraft that lack Panduni names. While translating those though, I got a little carried away.

The thing about species names is that they are inherently wildly variable. There are so many species in the world and so many of them are so similar. The common name for any given organism, and even whether it is considered a unique type of organism, is often completely different in different languages, and sometimes even in different dialects of the same language. For example, daisies, chamomile, and chrysanthemums are all considered distinct types of plant in most European languages, each with their own specific species; but in Chinese and Japanese, they're all called various types of "菊". To make matters worse, species names are one thing dictionaries tend to be bad at, so I was running up against the limit on how much I can learn about Hindi and Swahili online for a lot of this.

The logical way to name organisms in an auxlang, then, seems to be to base classifications on scientific taxonomy. Unfortunately, this is not guaranteed to be objective or international. For example, the word "acacia" comes from the ancient Greek name for the flat-topped Egyptian trees that are a distinctive feature of the African savannah, and that is how that word is used in common parlance in many languages (and in Minecraft). However, scientifically speaking, acacias are bushy trees native to Australia (commonly known as "wattles" in English). This is due to the history of the nomenclature surrounding the genuses Acacia and Vachellia, which was quite controversial. It seems not all taxonomists agree on how it turned out. Thus, using the word "acacia" in the sense used by most scientists would seem incorrect to Minecraft players as well as a minority of scientists.

In the face of this chaos, it seems that the only way to be unambiguous about what is meant by the Pandunia word translated as "daisy" is to include lots of examples of what species do and don't fit into that category. Which is how I ended up translating almost a hundred organism names. I won't list all of them here, since many of them are probably too obscure to belong in a dictionary, and I probably won't write them all down in this one post, but I will try to include a lot of examples for clarity's sake. I generally aimed to have a unique root or compound word for every genus, and clarify species and cultivars with adjectives, but th

Skull in our Backyard.

I belong to a small village in the north-eastern area of Pakistan, adjacent to Indian border.(was 15 years old that time) Before Partition of Subcontinent, many Hindus used to live in our area. They continued to live side by side with Muslims for centuries without any strife. But after Partition, Hindu families opted to migrate to India. My grandfather was in British Army during British Raj and he was quartered in Hyderabad State that is now in India (that is one reason why we all brothers and sisters know English though our native language is Punjabi). He migrated to Pakistan in 1950, three years after the freedom. He built a house at the very place where, before migration, Hindus used to do cremation. People of village forbade him to build house there, but he, being an ex-soldier, knew no fear.

Our most of the life remained peaceful and tranquil. But when I was in my teens, I began to see weird things. I often saw a crawling skull in our garden and backyard. We had planted so many trees and flowery bushes there, and the place had become a tiny grove. Often in the small hours, when thick darkness prevailed on the atmosphere (as there was no electricity in our village then), midst dead silence, I felt myself awake... Awake and fully conscious. I felt the presence of something crawling on the floor in my room. In spite of darkness, I could see, or I was made to see, a skull moving. I could hear scraping sound that chilled the marrow of my bones. Its upper teeth were visible but lower jaw was deformed and its hollow eyes seemed to look at me. I couldn't shriek. My whole body became numb. I felt chill, very chill. The skull moved towards a Vachellia nilotica tree which we locally call 'keekar'. It disappeared beside it somewhere, as I couldn't chase it due to fear and darkness. I witnessed this ghastly sight randomly, but mostly on moonless nights.

After a while my condition used to become normal. I was terribly afraid, but I couldn't recount these events to anyone. But I couldn't go near that keekar tree even during the day.

I can't call these events hallucination because I felt I was awaking and undergoing that terrible experience. I remained afraid during my high school time. Later, my father cut down some trees, including that keekar tree to build new rooms. When the earth was dug for foundations, some bones and a skull were discovered. I was stunned to see that it was the same skull that I used to see at night.

We buried them at some other place. Now

The Secret of Soma is very likely a subspecies of N. African Acacia combined with some other herb; a type of Kemet-huasca

Soma is an alleged herbal drink that served as a visionary sacrament central to the ancient mystery cult traditions, whose recipe was lost to time and the alleged "Christian" burning of the library of Alexandria, Egypt. The secret is allegedly vanguarded among the ecclesiastical elite through art and scripture, and conclusion drawn by such scholars as Carl AP Ruck are that it's a mushroom, cannabis or a type of grain smut similar to ergot.

Ergot, however is a false candidate because it causes St. Anthony's fire, or ergotism, aka St. Vitis dance. An affliction that causes the unwitting consumer of ergot to suffer the torment of lunacy and the sensation of burning extremities. Then they die.

Cannabis is a false candidate because no matter how concentrated the dose (ie: red lebanese hashish or kief or somesuch), the experience is utter bullshit as far as psychedelic experiences go, a closed-eye-visual pixellated 8bit entertainment at best, and a struggle to breath with spiders crawling in your lungs at worst. Doing too much cannabis is neither fun not enlightening.

Ruck postulated that a cousin of ergot growing on barley that does not cause ergotism, I believe he said Claviceps paspali rather than purpurea in one of his talks. It's possible that he's just gone off the wrong track as these would be difficult to distinguish and therefore identify.

The only other candidates are the basidiomycete fruiting body mushroom-- the psilocybin mushroom, as Terence McKenna asserted; or the Amanita muscaria (fly agaric) mushroom asserted by non-psychonaut scholar John Allegro, but the sources of those two hypotheses are problematic to say the least. More on that later >>>>>

For now let's just say Mushrooms don't grow in Egypt or the middle east or in arid places generally. They thrive in forests and in moisture. Egypt is a desert. Even back in biblical times. There might be wide riparian areas on either side of the Nile that would allow mushrooms to grow, however, the area would be small and would greatly limit their ecological niche to nearly nonexistant. Any mushrooms that show up would be so exceedingly rare that no large groups would ever be able to form around it.

It's also good to mention that psilocybin thrives in tropical grasslands with bovine animals; that's why it's associated with cows/bulls as it's a coprophitic (shit loving) mushroom--it grows on top of cow patties due to the moisture trapping capability and high

A little lost on where to start

So I read the Wiki and have a few questions:

  1. I don't understand how to read the USDA Heardiness Zones (I'm using a book that talks about local trees and commonly cultivated trees to get ideas). Can some trees from different zones be compensate for by being watered properly.

  2. Can you make Bonsai out of any tree?

  3. The Wiki talks about nurseries and good starting material. What makes good starting material? Saplings? Small trees?

  4. Local environment can be super harsh (am in Qatar). There are more than a few, beautiful trees that can grow here with sufficient watering as well as some great-looking native trees (two I can think of are: Vachellia nilotica and Vachellia tortilis). Can the native trees be made into Bonsai?

  5. Are watering and fertilizing tips in the wiki general tips? Cause many species need neither that much water to grow healthily. What's the idea behind submerging the soil in a bucket of water, for instance?

I have one of them mall bonsai to maintain/recover. I'll keep it outside for the winter since the weather isn't harsh (though the wind is a concern with that pot). I'll play around with it for now.

There are these taller trees at my work that have a very sweet scent when they bloom in the spring. I'm in Southern AZ (Cochise County) (8b i think?) They may not be native to here, as they're part of the landscaping, but they're drought tolerant.
