  Terence McKenna 1946-2000

I first encountered Terence thru his now-rare audio book, "True Hallucinations", an 8 tape set that was really incredible. He had the courage and the integrity to describe with fairly rigorous thouroughness a series of experiences he and his brother had in the Amazon jungles with psychedelic mushrooms. This experience ended in a short episode of psychedelic-induced shcizophrenia for Terence's brother Dennis. As a report of psychedelic aided psycho-spiritual experimentation it has few peers, and it's a totally engrossing story as well. The production of the tape, sound effects, sound track, et al created, in my opinion, a new standard for audio books.

So, if you ever get the chance to listen to the original tapes of "True Hallucinations", grab that oppurtunity with both hands and don't let go. I hope Terence's estate releases a new edition of the original AudioBook. I for one would snap it right up. My tapes are getting beat.

Terence has been a powerful influence in the sub-culture of both psychedelic and non-psychedelic esoteric explorers these past twenty years. In some ways he's a little bit too involved with eschatology (the study of the end of existence) and the "End of History" model for my taste, but that's a forgivable eccentricity. I'm looking forward to 2012 myself, but I am pretty certain that the day after any eschaton will be another day like all days, and that we are engaged in a process with time scales of millions of years, not thousands or hundreds or tens.

Thanks Terence. You did good work.
