Product Description

Synopsis

A thoroughly revised edition of the much-sought-after early work by Terence and Dennis McKenna that looks at shamanism, altered states of consciousness, and the organic unity of the King Wen sequence of the I Ching.

Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
The search for liberation, a paradisiacal state of freedom that mythology insists is the historical root of the historical process, has always been the raison d'etre of the human species' conscious pilgrimage through time. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars A voyage of discovery 26 Nov 2005
Format:Paperback
To start this review it is worth noting when this book was first published - 1975.
At this time the young, adventurous, scientific minded Mckenna brothers recalled their voyage of discovery. Through the use of hallucinogens they experienced thoughtful insights into shamanism, schizophrenia, the holographic nature of nature, and finally and maybe most memorably - they formulated a mathematical principle using the I-Ching that maps the history of 'Novelty'.
A great read, that will lead the reader on a voyage of their own.
Further study: The Timewave theory has since been scrutinised by expert mathematians:
Matthew Watkins found errors in the theory:
[...]
John Sheliak worked with Watkins objection and found that the theory could be corrected, and indeed it became even more accurate!

5.0 out of 5 stars recommended reading before 2012 7 Feb 2003
Format:Paperback
this book comprises 3 parts: an investigation into shamanism, schizophrenia and the holographic principles of memory; scientific psychedelic experimentation in the Amazon of such theories; and finally relating ancient Chinese principles (the I Ching) to novelty throughout the universe.
An amazing book filled with mind-blowing theories and frequent genius insights... the authors are incredibly intelligent whether you take their inspirational thoughts at face value or not.
Highly recommended.

Terence McKenna and his brother relate their experience with a South American psychoactive plant, and the mind-blowing (mind-blown?) insights that they gained from it. The I Ching's 'King Wen sequence' of the 64 hexagrams is interpreted as a digital code, and in fractal geometry-like fashion, concatenated onto itself to create a wave function for the entirety of the universe, with its peaks and minima related to rises and falls in the rate of 'novelty' in reality as different dimensional realities interpenetrate in the McKennas' version of 'the end of the world as we know it.'

I wished we had someone like Terence around today, what a great thinker he was. This is a brilliant book, well written and covers the subject matter.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2012 - How was it for you? 1 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Oh I love me a bit of TMcK. He's the hyper-gnome sitting in a DMT higher dimension, giggling at us all. Just don't *believe* a word of it! It's all a good fun read, but he was perhaps not the most accurate of scientists (unlike his brother, who since McKenna's death has been more forthcoming with the *truth* about Terence and 2012).You can even get an audiobook version where he reads it most engagingly. But I wouldn't trust the Yi Jing/Timewave stuff any further than you could throw the book after eating 20 grams of dried Cubensis (which, in my limited experience, would not be too far).
