This is the most challenging, and intelligent book that I may have ever laid my hands It is baffling in its comprehensiveness I feel that I shall have to read it several times to soak it all in. After reading the clear headed A Hofmann, this book was quite something different.Except for what happens in enigmatic singularities according to science, data, is never actually destroyed, and time isn t linear, that s just how we regularly experience it If no data, no information is ever truly destroyed, then that can be interpreted as the scientific version of the Akashic Records.It requires a leap of faith, but unusual experiences of being other people, plants, during psychedelic sessions and similar entranced states of consciousness could be explained as jumping from your own groove in the Akashic Records to other grooves, downloading, playing that information into your own brain So far it s some kind of spiritual science fiction but ok, it still makes sense.S Grof, however, often goes on long rants against the modern scientific world and is talking about ridiculous superstitious nonsense and myths like birthmarks being indicators of how you died in previous lives, or about how he attended some 19th century type spiritist performer asking ghosts in the room what painting they would like him to make Seriously This would be hilarious if he had a self deprecating sense of humour like T McKenna, but he doesn t Trust me you can take lots of psychedelics without turning into a gullible idiot, whom psychics like the one mentioned above would love to have as a client.It s not all bad, the psychedelic case studies, for example, are trip reports of terminal cancer patients and how it affects their mental state afterwards Without ranting on the scientific world or superstitious anecdotes.The book has other good chapters, like a summary of the books of the dead in the world according to different mythologies, but he always spoils it with his own rants and anecdotes, devoid of a sense of humour. Profound collection of related experience, overview of relevant literature and personal perspectives A useful introduction to the field Adequate preparation, support, and guidance are critical prerequisites for exploring the deep territories of the human mind.
