Première phrase
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. Lire la première page

Revolutionary! THE Future of Psychology! 2 juin 2003
Par Ross James Browne - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
_The Invisible Landscape_ by Terence and Dennis Mckenna is a highly modernized, up-to-date version of Jungian psychotherapy with an emphasis on brain-chemistry at the molecular level. Mckenna has fascinating theories on the nuances and inner workings of the subatomic particles within the DNA molecules in the human brain. According to Mckenna, the behavior of the atoms within our DNA actually determines the very nature of our conscious existence. Specifically, the patterns in which the electrons orbit the atomic nuclei in our DNA atoms form an Analog representation of what we are seeing; the electrons themselves move in such a manner as to create a type of morse-code which translates our sense perceptions into conscious being. This "analog theory of the brain" represents the crowning achievement of this book. The vibrations of the subtomic particles in our brain create reality in the same way in which digital and analog code create images on a computer screen.
But all of this has yet to be proved. Nevertheless, _The Invisible Landscape_ is a modern masterpiece of speculative philosophy/psychology. It represents the outermost reaches of far-seeing speculative theory. It is, therefore, a welcome departure from more conservative forms of thinking. Terence Mckenna also tries his hand at claivoyant soothsaying, providing the reader with his own unique doomsday prophecy loosely based on the hexagrams of the I-Ching. This so-called "timewave zero" graph maps the cycles of cultural and social "novelty" mankind has experienced over history. Suffice it to say that this theory is still open to debate.
Overall, the analog theory of mind, along with the "holographic theory of mind", make this book worth reading. _The Invisible Landscape_ is a hidden gem of psychological theory that should not be overlooked. Even though its emphasis is on complex molecular theories, it is quite readable and entertaining. It is geared toward the literary mind as well as the scientific mind, so I would recommend it to any ambitious reader regardless of their experience in neurology or chemistry.

unique joy 22 octobre 2002
Par Brian Wallace (Co-author of It's Not Your Hair) - Publié sur
Format: Broché
a razzle dazzle trip through math, mysticism and madness that will surely make the poet rejoice while the "rational" scientist churns. Among McKenna's work, I find this one to require the greatest stretch or leap of the imagination - which makes it one of my favorites!
To fully enjoy and understand the brilliance of McKenna, one must open up their intuition and greatest capacity for open-mindedness. We are dealing with visionaries musing at the extremes and blissing out with philosophic rapture or torture at almost every turn. These are experiences way beyond the "realities" most will ever know.
Another remarkable capacity of Terence was his ability to spin the words in a way that adventurously captures the essence of the experience while entertaining his readers literally BEYOND BELIEF!
As for the entheogen-cynics that knocked McKenna: He had more insight and made more contribution than all the cynics put together.
Long live his indomitable spirit!

A wild trip shows the I Ching encodes reality changes. 2 avril 1999
Par Phillip Schuman - Publié sur
Format: Broché
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.'

Great hypothesis, flawed delivery 6 avril 2003
Par S. LiPera - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The authors have a great hypothesis regarding the relationship between consciousness, neurochemistry, quantum mechanics, and the I Ching, but they get bogged down in a writing style that seems aimed at a very narrow segment. There is no need to write in such a way as to confuse readers. If they had decided to write a book more accessible to the average reader in its style, I believe that their ideas would be more widely known and believed today. As it is, I doubt that more than several hundred people have any idea of the connections that they have made.
Overall, just a shame to lose such a great idea.

A delight 2 novembre 2009
Par F. Carter - Publié sur
Format: Broché
First of all, both McKennas openly admit that a few of the ideas in this book are slightly outdated. They wrote this when they were very young and inclded many theories they were obviously anxious to test. In my opinion, it does not take anything away from the content. The McKenna brothers are incredible writers and their teamwork is incredible. Dennis's chemical approach to the topic is masterfully blended with Terence's cultural views.

This book goes well beyond recreational use of drugs. This has some very important commentary on the use of our own brains, our evolution, and their relation to spiritual matters.

If you haven't picked it up yet, get a copy of "Food of the Gods" by Terence to go with this.
