Hearing Terence talk about his ideas is even better than reading them.

His eloquent passion drips with every spoken word, and his emphasis on certain words reveals glimpses into his mind-set when he was writing.

True Hallucinations is, well, perhaps Publishers Weekly’s hilarious review said it best:

In 1971 ethnobotanist McKenna ( The Archaic Revival ), his brother Dennis and three friends boated to a town in Amazonian Colombia, seeking a hallucinogenic plant that enables the Witoto tribe to talk to elf-like “little men.” In psychedelicized ravings interspersed with diary excerpts, McKenna records their experiences after ingesting mind-altering mushrooms and other psychoactive plants.

A flying saucer slowly flew over McKenna’s head; he calls it a “holographic mirage” of a future technology. Dennis had a revelation about a “psychofluid” that pervades the universe. McKenna flashes forward to Hawaii in 1975 where mantis-like creatures from hyperspace attack his lover, and flashes back to his tantric lovemaking in Tibet and to Indonesia where unrepentant Nazi scientists tried to recruit him in 1970. He posits the existence of a particle of time, the chronon , which conditions matter. A bizarre book. – Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc

Our self discoveries make us each a microcosm of the larger pattern of history. The inertia of introspection leads toward recollection, for only through memory is the past recaptured and understood. In the fact of experiencing and making the present, we are all actors. – Terrence McKenna

    »Peculiar […] – *very* peculiar…«
    This is the recording of a most enthralling and fascinating stream of thought, delicately expressed and aptly compiled. Only after having had your first psychedelic mind expansion can you resonate and fully understand its depth and trueness, but it’s fun to read or listen anyway. Very rich. It definitely makes me want to dig deeper into McKenna’s perspectives… and looking forward to the 6 grams of dried »Psilocybe Cubensis McKennaii« stored in my fridge. ✨🍄😎✨ (Alas, not for the taste 😆)

    Just this month, Peter Bergmann from Budapest published a nearly three hours long documentary about the people, incidents and settings from McKenna’s Amazonian recollections.. It can be watched for free @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MG5gFtZ3U8, and he appreciates any donations @ https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/terence-mckenna-s-true-hallucinations-tickets–2/#/

    Terence McKenna speaks with an eloquence that is unmatched by any other modern philosopher. His views on shamanism and ethnobotanist are beyond what scientist can comprehend as the psychedelic experience is beyond science. I have listened to this audiobook 3 times now and each time I gain new understanding. His workshops are even more intriguing.

    Terence you are well missed my friend.
