4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating & Thorough (click the cart button already!) 23 mai 2010
Par Red Pill Junkie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
If you're of the squeamish type when it comes to Fortean phenomena, and by 'squeamish' meaning you cringe if your Ufological carrots ever touch your cryptozoological peas on your dinner plate, then this probably isn't the right book for you --so go ahead, click on the shopping cart to buy *yet another* Stanton Friedman book, why don't you?

If, by the other hand, you're open-minded enough to critically examine the many commonalities found in the realm of what are popularly referred to as 'paranormal phenomena'; then you'll probably find this book, written by young journalist & researcher Micah A. Hanks, succulently mixed in all its varied ingredients as a fine gumbo stew.

What Magic, Mysticism & the Molecule was set to undertake is no small task by any means: making a thorough and comprehensible review of all the different techniques & disciplines used throughout human history, in order to contact sentient intelligences 'from beyond'; for it would take a rather cynic mentality to deny the fact that mankind has a longstanding obsession with it's apparent isolation.

In this era we're using the tools of science to probe the electromagnetic frequencies in search for other civilizations that might share our galactic neighborhood --the ONLY method endorsed by mainstream science, since any notion of possible visitation happening today or in the past is anathema to the edifice of Academia; but even before the invention of radioastronomy, many humans have attempted contact with 'superior beings' in search for knowledge, power or enlightenment. Whether these entities were members of the angelic legions communicating with famous magician John Dee through 'scrying stones' & the Enochian language, or the modern-era 'Space Brothers' who also happened to favor the same psychic channels developed by the Spiritualist movement in the late XIXth century, many people have tried to find 'doorways' into the unseen metaphysical worlds, said to be inhabited with transhuman intelligences by both ancient and modern mythic traditions.

But the contact with other intelligences can also be accomplished by the exploration of inner space, and that's exactly what's covered in the 2nd part of the book, devoted to Mysticism and the varied spiritual disciplines practiced in the East and the West. Studying the meditative techniques used by Indian yogis for thousands of years, and the spontaneous ecstatic experiences of Christian mystics like St. Therese, Micah almost seems to suggest that the human Microcosm is not only an archetypical reflection of the 'material' Macrocosm... but they might even be one and the same. It's not a question then of pleading the alien to come down to Earth with his spaceship, but of US elevating our consciousness in order to perceive a higher strata of reality.

And those higher levels of existence can also be explored with the aid of fascinating --but potentially dangerous-- "spiritual technologies", which are now the center of such levels of persecution and condemnation as to rival the witch hunts of medieval times. The technologies I'm referring are of course the hallucinogenic compounds found on entheogenic (literally, 'God-releasing') plants that had been used by shamanic cultures long before they were black-listed by government agencies with soup-letter names. This, the subject of the third and final part of the book, should not be seen nevertheless as an apology of the indiscriminate use of such compounds for mere recreational use; Micah neither endorses nor approves experimentation with such substances --something he didn't even try himself, for the sake of keeping a proper journalistic objectivity-- he merely sticks in his role of reporter and allows the reader to make an informed opinion --one Hunter S. Thompson is more than enough.

Besides, what's the need of risking one's life or liberty seeking illegal drugs, when our OWN brain is capable of naturally produce the most powerful psychoactive compound known to man? Dimethiltryptamine (DMT), modernly referred to as the 'spirit molecule' thanks to the ground-breaking work conducted by Dr. Richard Strassman in the 1990s, receives much of Micah's attention in the last pages of the book.

Reading Magic, Mysticism & The Molecule is not only highly informative in its clear presentation of evidence, but it will also surprise you with many entertaining --and spooky!-- personal anecdotes in which Micah describes the personal journey he & some of his friends went through, during the research of the material. Rest assured this is not a dry read, and Micah excels in explaining the most arcane subjects in a comprehensible manner accessible to any layman.

This is one little jewel of a book that should be considered in the collection of any serious student of high-strangeness. After finishing it, you'll end yourself coming to the realization that the best tool we could use to come in contact with alien intelligences --devas, ghosts, angels, ETs... labels are fleeting and in constant evolution-- has always been right in front of our eyes --or rather, behind our eyes: our own mind.

But that same tool is to this day still poorly understood, and the dangers of tampering with it are many and not to be taken lightly. The seemingly endless possibilities that the Universe offers might be too much to cope for our feeble psyches; and perhaps, as Micah writes, "this is the goal of the "sentient others" we encounter from time to time: to attempt to bring us bits and pieces, one at a time, so that we may learn from them."

I very much enjoy Micah Hanks' approach to writing. He presents information in a clear and understandable manner. I like that he isn't so much telling me what to think, but is providing information so that I can, actually, think about it more clearly.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A mind-bending look at the other side of Reality 7 mai 2010
Par W.M. Mott - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Having just finished Micah Hank's new book, "Magic, Mysticism and the Molecule," I can honestly say that it is a 'must read' for anyone interested in anomalies, the paranormal, the unknown, and the Fortean.

Micah's research opens some interesting new pathways into the way we should look at some strange phenomena, and encounters with non-human intelligences in particular. Examining the similarities between experiences initiated by (dangerous, in my opinion) esoteric and magickal activity, mystical practices, and chemically-induced experiences, Hank's book leads one to wonder if indeed there is a thin veil separating us from many of the terrifying entities people have at times reported encountering. In many ancient traditions these overlapping similarities were known by some, and utilized, but the dangers were always present. This might explain why the word (pharmacologia) translated as "sorceries" in the book of Revelation is also the word from which we get "pharmacology."

"Opening a pathway" or a door to another aspect of reality can often be very dangerous, and this book contains some good, cautionary food for thought. Micah is not bashful about sharing his own experimentation as well, and the stories of others paint a picture that should advise the searcher to tread carefully! It may be that there are hidden aspects of our own reality that can occasionally be accessed via the methods or even the "accidents" described in this book, so be careful! And enjoy an absolutely fantastic, mind-bending look into a new paradigm of altered-state consciousness--and those who might just dwell on the other side of the veil!
