About the Author
Terrence McKenna has spent twenty-five years exploring "the ethnopharmacology of spiritual transformation" and is a specialist in the ethnomedicine of the Amazon basin. He is coauthor, with his brother Dennis, of The Invisible Landscape: Mind, Hallucinogens, and the I Ching, and the author of Food of the Gods.

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.Read more ›
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!
Overall, just a shame to lose such a great idea.

Awesome book. Filled with ideas so magnificently surreal and rooted in scientific, physical, and metaphysical elements. It's a trip just to read it.Published 13 months ago by Andrew Bettke
The foreward to the 1994 edition describes this book as: "dense, technical, fascinating, infuriating." I would say this is an excellent way to summarise McKenna's book. Read morePublished 13 months ago by A.Luther
