You didn't leave him a filter, you jerk.
Actually Peruvian shamans believe that spirits are attracted to tobacco smoke and so they often smoke tobacco during ceremonies to draw them in.
Not saying it's legit but it's interesting that this guy has the same idea as Peruvian shamans.
I don't think it's his idea. Shamanic traditions from West Africa and the Americas have been thoroughly watered down and co-opted by the neo-pagan, paranormal research, and new age sects to the point of meaninglessness.
In the case of the original traditions, it's not a "scam," because they are intertwined with social ritual, often times actual authentic healing tradition, the interpretation of law, the settling of debt, and so on. Sure, when Western style capitalism was introduced, it became in many places a capitalist scamming practice that we can recognize as old fashioned charlatanism, but where it's still going on in its less adulterated forms, it serves a real and even useful function.
Really, with all of this, baleen? Really?
