The Archaic Revival: Speculations on Psychedelic Mushrooms, the Amazon, Virtual Reality, UFOs, Evolut Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cited by the L.A. Weekly as "the culture's foremost spokesman for the psychedelic experience," Terrence McKenna is an underground legend as a brilliant raconteur, adventurer, and expert on the experiential use of mind-altering plants.

In these essays, interviews, and narrative adventures, McKenna takes us on a mesmerizing journey deep into the Amazon as well as into the hidden recesses of the human psyche and the outer limits of our culture, giving us startling visions of the past and future.

Review:

"Scholar, theoretician, explorer, dreamer, pioneer, fanatic, and spellbinder, as well as ontological tailor, McKenna combines an erudite, if somewhat original, overview of history with a genuinely visionary approach to the millenium. The result is a cyclone of unorthodox ideas capable of lifting almost any brain out of its cognitive Kansas." Tom Robbins, from the Foreword

Review:

"As wordsmith and logos laser, [McKenna] stews his conceptual imagination in language so potent that doors open into evolutionary destiny and possible worlds. A radically innovative natural philosophy is offered here, one that inspires a enw ecology of inner and outer space." Jean Houston, Ph.D., director Foundation for Mind Research, author of The Possible Human and The Search for the Beloved

Review:

"[McKenna's] ideas are rare jewels discovered during expeditions to the heights and depths of inner space....The Archaic Revival is flammable to the drybrush and deadwood of the intellect. In the twilight of human history, McKenna's prescription for salvation is just so crazy it might work." Alex Grey, artist, author of Sacred Mirrors: The Visionary Art of Alex Grey

Synopsis:

A student of Tibetan shamanism, virtual reality, and the botany of the Amazon, McKenna is a legendary raconteur, adventurer, and proponent of the use of the psilocybin mushroom who claims that hallucinogenic plants are a key to our evolution as a language-using species. 25 collages by Satty.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 253-254) and index.
