A staggering array of exciting topics is covered in this meeting with a remarkable thinker–from integrating spirit with science to the role of psychoactive plants in human evolution, from the current rainforest situation to music and language as color and image. McKenna lucidly and boldly retells early human history, describing the role of “psychedelic shamanism” in early partnership societies, in the development of language and imagination, and in the past and future evolution of humanity. A mind-bending hour that ends too soon!
McKenna is the author of The Archaic Revival (Harper 1991) and Food of the Gods: The Search for the Original Tree of Knowledge (Bantam 1992)
