It's a relatively new phenomena that the patient drinks the medicine. Traditionally, before Westerners, the curandero would drink alone in the presence of the patient. And earlier still the curandero drank a medicine derived solely from ayahuasca vine (banisteriopsis caapi). That is, the medicine did not contain chacruna (psychotria viririds) as it does today in order to bring about visions. It was not needed for visions and to heal.
Chacruna was added in the 1900s due to the impact of westernization in the region and the negative affect on the curanderos' natural connections.
So it isn't necessarily that a formula of two plants was magically discovered at the very beginning.
Its modern descendent are https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J_(programming_language) & https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K_(programming_language).

>Planes also promise fast travel times, but if a plane crashes, we heavily investigate the cause and figure out a solution so it doesn’t occur again. The USA experiences the equivalent of over 100 Boeing 747 plane crashes a year(and rising), counting only deaths due to traffic crashes. The number spikes significantly higher when you factor in people with severe injuries who will never fully recover(think: losing arms, legs, brain damage,etc..).
>Assuming speed limits stay the same, but deaths and injuries _continue_ to rise, at what point would you say we have a ‘bad balance’ and should adjust? What is your ‘balance’ based on? Is there some ratio of VMT(vehicle miles traveled) to occurrences of deaths and dismemberment that you keep in mind?
All the water tanks in the world don't add up to a trillion km³. Not by many orders of magnitude.

The sun does that for free, and has done for billions of years.
I originally used pass (with some custom scripts to read the current URL from Chrome and copy the password for that domain), but then switched to 1Password when they came out with their cross-platform browser extensions. Having a browser extension to automatically generate and save usernames and passwords, and something that supports syncing out-of-the-box makes password management a whole lot easier.
Earlier this year I switched to BitWarden (with bitwarden-rs as the server) and it is 95% as good as 1Password. I'm happy to have something self-hosted to manage this.
For example, suppose you're building a neural net to detect early-stage lung cancer on medical imaging, and you test/train it on patients in a small set of hospitals. Often the hospital name is given on the image, and this can be used as a covariate to improve accuracy (due to the hospitals serving different populations with different demographics). But a model that does this may suffer when put into production at other hospitals.
Some real-life examples with this flavor are given at the end of these slides: https://mlhcmit.github.io/slides/lecture10.pdf.
See also Section 6.2 of this paper for how interpretability can help choose models with superior generalization: https://arxiv.org/abs/1602.04938.
The author is pedantic and seems to just not want to use other tools. That’s fine. But this is a dumb road for others to follow.
Remember the entire thing started because they don’t like front matter. They could literally have written a script to parse front matter, which are literally a few plain text lines.
Then they wanted asciidoc but without the dependency. Except their own code will likely have an asciidoc dependency unless they wrote their own entire asciidoc parser. In which case they could also have done this and plugged it into the same script.
“You don’t want to get stuck into the thinking of others,” they scream into the wires, followed by hobbling themselves into the most minimal viable product straight jacket imaginable.
Fool programmers and their time are soon parted.
While some specific cities may have their heads up their butts with regard to public policy resulting in more visible homeless the living conditions of the "almost homeless" and working poor have very much improved since the early 1970s (as far back as my knowledge goes).
You can say what you want about the blue collar middle class (off-shoring and student debt have hit them hard over the past decades) but things have very much been improving up for the poor as a whole even though some poor people are unlucky enough to live in backwards places where things have gotten worse locally.
encpass.sh only needs a POSIX compliant shell and uses OpenSSL. This is nice for restrictive computing environments (think big enterprise IT) where you may not be able to control the software that is installed on the machine.
The implementation turned out to be so useful and easily adaptable that we created an extension to it for Keybase (https://github.com/plyint/encpass.sh/blob/master/extensions/...) and have a whole workflow built around using the tool to manage secrets with teams and Keybase's builtin encrypted Git repos. (Primarily used in our automation scripts to hold API keys and other application level secrets)
I stop short of recommending the Keybase extension for others, since the acquisition of Keybase by Zoom, but the original OpenSSL version might prove useful for people who are looking for a simple secret management solution that is easy to plugin and extend.
