About this deal

It can get too specific in history topics and a little boring for me, but I’m sure some people love that. He lives in Occidental, California, and is co-manager of a botanical garden in Hawaii for endangered tropical plants. Thus started a centuries-long conspiracy to suppress consciousness that continues to this day through corporate advertising and television.

On a philosophical note, one of my criticisms of the book is his insistence that the modern belief in the meaninglessness of the world, and also the belief that meaning is context-dependent, are both wrong.

Tuttavia, l'intento di McKenna non è unicamente il voler descrivere questa decadenza nella storia umana, ma riproporre quell' originario modello di civiltà perduta come Eden da riconquistare, attraverso l'utilizzo di allucinogeni, ed in particolare DMT e Psylocibe cubensis, in grado di far compiere a chi l'assume viaggi ultradimensionali, di garantire una conoscenza spropositata di ciò che siamo, del nostro mondo e del mondo Altro.

I have listened to several lectures and interviews by and with McKenna but this is the first book by him I have read. And as a daring work of scholarship and exploration, it offers an inspiring vision for individual fulfilment and a humane basis for our interaction which each other and with the natural world. The living fact of the mystery of being is there, and it is an inalienable religiouS right to be able to approach it on one's own terms. McKenna's claims that low dosages of psychedelics enhance visual acuity and therefore confer reproductive advantage to those populations utilizing them has some credibility as such seems to be the case.He would have alcohol and tobacco taxed at 200%, with more warning of their dangers, cannabis legalised, and the rest legalised a year later. Terence McKenna definitely puts forth interesting and thought-provoking ideas, and I didn’t disagree with all of them. The texts seem to imply that the juice was purified by being poured through a woolen filter and then in some cases was mixed with milk. What surprising results may the interdisciplinary field of ethnobiology find in the future both about our past development and the coming influences of what we are consuming right now, looking at you, eating or high reader. To those that may be put off by the fact they might not necessarily agree with all of McKenna's theories.
