Many accuse Carlos of being disingenuous. When defending a project on Castaneda in college, I said to my peers, 'Does it matter?'. Shed your narrow, rational viewpoint (a byproduct of Baconian ideology, and not inherent to nature per se) and you'll find that your depictions of 'true' and 'not true', i.e. calling upon some source of 'authority' to prove or disprove what you're experiencing are just shields you're putting up between yourself and what you're experiencing. When reading Castaneda, it's what you experience that matters, and, with careful study and the suspension of disbelief, Carlos' 'magic words' will take you right into his experiences with him. (Literally, I'm not being cute or poetic. Just to be clear)
