I have no problem with mckenna. I agree with almost zero of what he says, and I don't find him particularly special (not more than any other experienced psychonaut with crazy ideas... though his crazy ideas are surely more organized (to him) than most shroomerites for example).

But what fun are psychedelics if you can't make up some crazy theories about the universe and mankind? If your goal is to be 100% logical in life, that's fantastic. But I don't see how the desire to do psychdelics figures in with that. I can understand the desire to understand *how* they work, but using them wouldn't have much value unless you're just after "seeing pretty things". I think even Mckenna's babble is more noble than the above.

If you're reading mckenna's book because you think he's a genius, and you need some sort of strange beliefs to latch on to because you have none of your own... eh... good luck? If I read his work, I prefer to do so to witness the creativity and strangeness of a man who has done quite a lot of psychedelics. Perhaps to compare his insanity with my own. But to take his word as fact? (speaking not so much about his cultivation info, which i've not actually read) again, good luck with that.

He's certainly too "out there" and without evidence or solid reasoning for me to blindly follow, as many do. But I find the old psychonaut a worthy subject for analysis now and then. His devotion and respect to the plants, fungi, and chemicals are noble indeed.

As recently as two weeks ago the grain of salt I take mcKenna with was about as big as yours seems to be, but lately he grows on me more and more. He's a trickster figure, which I can really appreciate, and his eloquence often ventures into the land of hyperbole, but you can still gain a lot from what he's talking about.

I'm reading him and Huxley at the same time right now, an interesting dichotomy.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

Thanks mate, works for me.

This was the book that sparked my interest in mushroom growing years ago.

I lent it out but never got it back, as usual :frown:

Glad to have it again

Funny things to say about the grand master guru of Psilocybin thinkers around the globe.

Mycognostic individuals are the most underestimated humans of all. :smirk:
