I am having an awful schocking night. Terence McKenna is dead? He and his borther
went off to
South America, speficly a region in the Amazon. He was most known for his love of
pyschedelic mushrooms. He would often spout off (are those the right words) on all
sorts of weird things. He had a somewhat more conservastive brother that was
associated with Stanford University at the time.
They would often visit places, For example I was living in Santa Cruz, CA at the
time and he gave a presentation there along with his brother. His book with his
brother Dennis called Invisible Landscapes is a weiorness romp in itself. He ties
together all sorts of things psychoactive mushrooms,. human evolution, the I Ching
and schizophrenia to name a few. Since it has been quite around these parts I'll do
a a resynopsis over the next coupla days if anyone wants or just for fun.
How did you find out he was head allmy refs sdsay 1946- which indicates he is still
alive and would in his middle 50s. So please pray tell me how did you find this
out. I'll ask around the weirness circuit.
P.S. Excuse my typos have been up for ages. ...at this point...
