It is only necessary to make war with five things; with the maladies of the body, the ignorances of the mind, with the passions of the body, with the seditions of the city and the discords of families.
     ~ Pythagoras of Samos

Carlos Castaneda was an anthropologist seeking to do field work on the use of medicinal plants when he met don Juan Matus. Castaneda’s guide became his guru, who introduced him into a new way of thought and being, based on the knowledge of the seers of his lineage. Dr. Castaneda wrote twelve books on his apprenticeship.
