Hey, I was reading through the Psychedelic Experience, and leary mentions that you can skip all the visions and go straight to the first bardo using the "transference principle". I was just wondering if anybody knows what this is?
-------------------- There are an infinite number of ways to interpret experience... The trick is not to fall for any of them
Hi, I read The Psychedelic Experience about 15 years ago & came across the same parable, equally bemused, so I tried finding out the same thing.
I came across your post (it's one of the few things on the net about it)a couple of years ago, since then I kept up the digging & found something out about a month ago, after listening to a Terrence McKenna talk on youtube.
McKenna mentions Transference & then halts his flow, addressing the audience & say's along the lines, ''for those who are seriously interested in Psychedelics, you should seriously consider reading Carl Jungs Book, The Psychology of Transference before moving forward'' or along those lines, anyway I gets the book.
It's a pleasant read & as you would imagine, very enlightening. It explains the Psychology game & approaches the beginnings of transference. Soon we are quickly ushered into the early works of rosacruxianism & mercurial alchemy.
Some knowledge of alchemy & hermetecism helps decode & translate the thread of the Jungs commentary, however i'm sure that as you read, the book & your mind can find a model suitable for you to understand the meaning & aspects of the Transference Principle by what you already know, & this is how the principle works I believe, it's like an accessible code translator, that connects your Subconscious & Consciousness.
You will understand what the message is & whereabouts you stand in respects to the plan & how to achieve greater results, am sure.
I hope you find this post & it helps you as much as it helped me, keep going the answer will come eventually ;-) Hail Eris
