If you like fantasy books you should check out the Wheel Of Time series by Robert Jordan.

I don't think I could read anything when tripping or much less care to, I think he was asking for something good to read when high, I dunno that's how I took it.

I know! It left so much of the storyline just hanging. The next one should be really really good though...

Ectsacy Club By Gregory Rushkoff

It's like a fringe-scifi book about a cult/rave commune that draws interesting parralels to real-life events that lead to the overnight demise of the rave era.

I heard that there will be two more books and the series will be complete. He said that in an interview. He also said that he will most likely write some books about the time of the dragon,Lews therin.


Another good series is the gunslinger, by Stephen king. The "wizard and the glass",book four in the series, is very similar to the wheel of time.

Russel Banks - Rule of the Bone (my favorite book)

Orson Scott Card - the Ender series, especially Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, and Children of the Mind.

Those books are incredible.

Im not sure the author, but its by the guy that wrote black hawk down. Such an engaging book, very indepth about a college student who grew into a business man with a national cocaine ring, very detailed, very interesting.

Food of the goods

By terrence Mckenna - Not too cosmic, but fucking interesting, related to drugs and evolution..

On the Road

Jack Kerouac - About hitching cross country and living a wild authors life. Common now...its jack Kerouac. Check em out!

Terrance Mckenna - I can reccomend The Archair Revival, Food of the Gods, The invisible Landscape.

He is also infintiely listenable - try - http://mckenna.psychedelic-library.org/ for some great samples. My favorite track is Metamorphosis.

the invisible landscape WHILE HIGH?  I love that book, but I'd never understand it high lol.  That book is so dense and complicated, you have to read it one sentence at a time, digest, comprehend, move on to the next.

Sample:

This is part of the description of how the brain works to "recieve" consciousness...

"The first is that the rapid bonding and debonding of intercalators causes a rapid twisting and untwisting of the helix, and this gives rise to a vibratory oscillation of the macromolecule.  This oscillation, occurring within the electrical field at the synapse, ahs the effect of generating an electromagnetic waveform.  This signal, however, becomes absorbed at certain frequencies by low-energy electrons present in the charge-transfer complexes, which are formed by neurotransmitters intercalating into the RNA.  This absorbtion of energy serves to modulate the signal and simultaneously saturates the energy bands in the charge-transfer complex, canceling the polarization of the base pairs, allowing the RNA strands to rejoin.  Exactly this sort of absorbtion phenomenon is observed in electron spin resonance spectrometry, so we can refer to the proposed process as an ESR effect or ESR signal."

:eek:
