The Capsium chinense however has a very different shape and other taxonomic characteristics,and the issue of classification is not completely clear.

The significance of Jesus Christ (his example, deeds, teachings, etc) should not be confused with the personal historicity of Christ. In fact, the only Christ we can observe in any scientific sense is the literary Christ; the character in the Bible. But this one and only "scientifically real" Christ in turn is obviously also based on something. All literary characters have to have links to reality or else the audience can't relate and the story fails (which explains why there are no novels about stones or slugs and such), and the quest for the "historical Jesus" tries to answer what, exactly, inspired the literary Christ; which historic stamp caused Jesus the literary imprint, what historic reality is represented in the literary Christ.

Would refluxing the root in strong ethanol work?

ANSWER:
Extracting Fresh Herbs is more difficult than most believe.

You need to know what concentration of water is in the fresh plant and what percentage of final alcohol you want in the product

Normally you want the alcohol in Valerian Extract Products fairly high, 55-65%
.
Using Ethyl Alcohol which is 5% water and 95% alcohol is best.

You also need to know what concentration you are extracting too, normally fresh plants are extracted to a 1:2 ratio (grams to milliters)

Here is an example

Suppose you have 1 pound of Valerian Root converting this to grams you have 454 times 1 equals 454 grams.

Starting with 454 grams in a 1:2 ratio your product would theoretically be 908 milliters of extract (actually yields can have a loss of 25%, which is liquid still held in the marc aftering pressing)

Assuming you want a 55% alcohol final product .55 times 908 equals 528 mls of alcohol but Ethyl Alcohol is 5% water.

So you need 528/.95 = 556 mils of grain alcohol from the bottle

Now you need to calculate the number of mils of distilled water to be added.

The fresh root already has some amount of water in it, probably 80% water so of the 454 grams of Valerian root .8 times 454 equals 363 mils of water (assuming 1:1 density of water)

If the final product is suppose to be 908 mils and we know we have 28 mils of water coming from the Ethyl alcohol (556-528) and we have 363 mils of water coming from the fresh plant and we are using 528 mils alcohol then we don't need to add any mils of distilled water ( because 908 minus 528 minus 28 minus 363 equals negative 11). We can't add a negative number. But we will assume some water loss between harvesting the roots, garbling (cleaning anything out that is not Valerian Root), washing and drying them previous to adding the menstrum (water and alcohol preparation) we will forget the negative 11 mils of water.

So here is what we have to mix

1 pound Valerian Root
556 mils grain alcohol from bottle

I would add everything to a blender and mash until the root is liquified. Let the whole thing set for 4-8 weeks or longer then strain off the solids and/or press out the marc. The marc is what is left after the liquid is drained off. The liquid recovered is extract of Valerian.

If you do not want to go through this process we sell extracts of valerian root prebottled with dropper and directions for use.

At one point in her classic Hollywood interviews, Hortense Powdermaker was told that "[i]f the complaints from members of religious, professional, racial and national groups were all heeded, it would be impossible for Hollywood to make any picture with a villain in it." That blatantly false assertion, of course, is exactly what Hollywood would like for us to believe, and that Hollywood propaganda has been repeated many times since by spokes persons for the Hollywood establishment. A more realistic appraisal would assume that instead of movies without villains, which is really just a Hollywood smokescreen, the film industry's approach to villains should merely eliminate consistent patterns of bias. In other words, if the various racial, ethnic, cultural and religious groups that make up our multi-cultural society were treated more fairly in movies, there would be less reason for anyone to complain about an occasional negative or stereotypical portrayal. Further, since the defenders of the U.S. film industry are fond of pointing out that the many films that portray Jews in a favorable manner relate stories of universal application, it would also be at least hypothetically appropriate to reverse these blatant Hollywood patterns of bias and see how audiences would react to substituting Jewish characters in movies that have portrayed non-Jews in a negative manner, in films made by non-Jews and distributed by companies controlled by non-Jews, all of which also relate stories of "universal application". It is certain that some of the Hollywood establishment would cringe at such a thought.
