review True Hallucinations Being an Account of the Author's Extraordinary Adventures in the Devil's Paradise True Hallucinations Being an Account of the Author's Extraordinary Adventures in the Devil's Paradise Download ✓ 108 Read Ï eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Î Terence McKenna Like a lovely psychedelic sophist McKenna recounts his adventures with psychoactive plants in the Basin Either a profoundly psychotic episode or a galvanizing glimpse into the true nature of time mind McKenna is a spellbinding storyteller providing plenty of down to earth reas Acuired this after reading the first parts of Tao Lin s Trip Psychedelics Alienation and Change about McKenna and knowing a bit about him from The Spirit Molecule a Netflix documentary about DMT The day I finished Tao s book this arrived as well as a 1100 page ARC I ve been looking forward to reading for two years something I assumed I d start reading as soon as I removed it from the mailer But first I decided I d take a look at this Terence McKenna book and then I read like 50 pages that first night giddy completely forgetting the enormous long awaited ARC next in line reveling in the humorous flowing prose with shades of Melville as they set off into the in search of their own version of the white whale in this case a rare psychedelic plant or concoction kept secret by the natives with a name like oo oe oe something like that but then are distracted by uite magical mushrooms growing everywhere in the jungle There s one chapter an aside from the current story in South America that s essentially a sex scene a few years earlier in a small town outside of Katmandu that s easily one of the best sex scenes I ve ever read ending with the two lovers on a roof covered in a mysterious obsidian psychofluid My initial instinct was to read this as fiction a major previously unknown addition to the canon along with Cesar Aira s An Episode in the Life of a Landscape Painter Werner Herzog s Conuest of the Useless the beautiful Ciro Guerra film Embrace of the Serpent and Herzog s two great films Aguirre The Wrath of God and Fitzcarraldo both of which are uests the first with a Spanish conuistador searching for El Dorado a mythical city of gold and the second with a half cracked failed businessman formerly failed to bring ice and a railroad to the who intends to build an opera house in Iuitos and bring Caruso there to sing but winds up pulling a steamboat over a huge hill between two rivers and calling it a success Herzog s films are from 1972 and 1982 so the first was probably shot right around the same time the McKenna brothers were in the jungle tripping their faces off which is pretty much what happens in this after maybe 80 pages They wind up eating a ton of mushrooms taking ayahuasca with mushrooms on top seeing UFOs hearing the sound of the universe experiencing the essentially fractal nature of time Dennis McKenna the author s younger brother believes he can make any phone ring in the world even in the past and therefore makes his recently deceased mother s phone ring twenty years earlier and talks to her although she doesn t believe she s talking to him because he s only three years old and he s sitting uietly next to her Dennis generally breaks on through to the other side spouts wickedly inventive scientifically tinged psychobabble as though he s discovered the fount of the bards of yore and seems like he might have slipped over into something like schizophrenia than psychedelic enlightenment The italicized excerpts from Dennis journals I found unreadable after a while as was a lot of the second half of this like listening to someone tell you their dreams in a way that s sure that their dreams are not only real but also prophetic and of super significance to the future of humanity Having learned in Tao s book that Terence died of a brain tumor I couldn t help thinking that some of the voices in his head weren t the mushroom talking to him but so sadly derived from early stage cancer This can also be read as the brothers weird way of mourning their mother s death and it s momentarily affecting if considered in that light but also seems like a stretch I can t say I read the last half of the book so carefully didn t read every word of this skimmed pages of psychedelic psychobabble about UFOs etc but again I loved the opening pages in which they set off to encounter the white whale of the mind essentially they re devoured by the mushrooms they eat and live inside the belly of the beast for a few weeks and inside it s all spectacular and after a while spectacularly boring psychedelic fireworks After about 120 pages of this I looked forward to the enormous ARC and its promise of long passages of descriptions of child care trying to write and doing dishes in Scandinavia the uotidien wonders of old fashioned non lenticular reality never seemed interesting to me which seems to jibe just fine with the coming down after effects of such experiences from what I can remember from long ago
