Terence McKenna

True Hallucinations
  • True Hallucinations

  • In March 1971, Terence McKenna, his brother Dennis and a small gypsy-like band of friends set off for the Colombian Amazonas. Along the surreal way, they encounter a cast of remarkable characters - including a mushroom, a flying saucer, pirates from outer space, and James Joyce in the guise of poultry.

    One result of their adventures was McKenna's theory that psilocybin, the psychoactive ingredient in the stropharia cubensis mushroom, is the missing link in the development of human consciousness and language...

Terence McKenna (1946–2000) was an American ethnobotanist, psychonaut and author noted for his knowledge of psychedelics, metaphysics and subjects ranging from shamanism to the origins of language and civilization. His other books include Food of the Gods, The Archaic Revival and, with Dennis McKenna, The Invisible Landscape.
