        Dennis J. McKenna Terence McKenna Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Invisible Landscape: Mind, Hallucinogens & the I Ching book, this is one of the most wanted Dennis J. McKenna Terence McKenna author readers around the world.


    1. I really wanted to like this book. It’s the last one I am reviewing for 2009, and I am a huge fan of Terence McKenna. But this one fell short for me.The Invisible Landscape is a collaborative effort between Terence and Dennis McKenna, known in the psychedelia circuit as the “McKenna brothers.” The events of this book took place during 1971, and the inspiration for a lot of the ideas contained within occurred during the La Chorrera experiment, which is explained in Terence’s book True Hal [...]

    2. I bought this book at Shaman Drum on State in Ann Arbor during a period of my being on the outs with phonetic language. (RIP Shaman Drum, we miss you). The clerk knew of McKenna's terminal medical condition. (RIP McKenna, though I feel I've gotten to know him better as the internet has gained fidelity). In 1999, I got about 40 pages into the book and could get no further. I shelved the book for 11 years and now I've returned to pick through the dense language for some clue as to what it all mean [...]

    3. This book is going to take a long time to read. Virtually every sentence has to be re-read in order to comprehend

    4. The Invisible landscape by Terence and Dennis McKenna is a very original and unusual book. From a daring shamanistic experiment with hallucinogenic compounds they arrived at insights about a holographic temporal wave (called "time wave zero") based on a fractal of cycles which they could derive from the I Ching.The first part of the book is about the experiment the brothers McKenna undertook in La Chorrera in the in which they took a mixture of Ayahuasca and hallucinogenic mushrooms. This led t [...]

    5. Put two great minds together, an ethnobotanist & a neurobiologist who happen to be brothers, place them in the depths of the for a month or so with a plethora of hallucinogenic mushrooms at their disposal & you get this book. This is a great pseudo scientific adventure, a psychedelic faction threaded together with cutting edge theory & stropharia fueled speculation. What does it matter that the ideas put forth in this book don't stand up to scientific scrutiny? According to them, te [...]

    6. It may be that the psychedelic experience cannot be understood using only the reductionist model of science, and that only by a conscious unification of the reductionist, analytical methods of science with the holistic, nonanalytical approach of the shaman can we hope to understand, appreciate, and apply the lessons learned from such experiences. This book is a first, faltering, step in that direction. (p. xix)And it is faltering, as well as sprawling and audacious and promethean and probably mo [...]

    7. This work covers a lot of ground, from organic chemistry to neurophysiology to shamanic traditions, which is both its strength and weakness. There's plenty you can learn about here in a general sense, but McKenna is simply too spaced out to convince with his speculations. The point of the book is to make sense of the author's revelatory drug exeperiences; like most seekers, he caught a glimpse of something, but discursive thought acts as a lens through which the spiritual is seen: in this case, [...]

    8. The book is divided in two parts. Part one deals with shamanism, theory of mind, and brain-chemistry both under and not under influence of psychedelic drugs like psilocybin and dimethyltryptamine. Part two deals with a speculative theory of time based on a mathematical elaboration on the I Ching.This whole book is drained with speculation, so if you're not into that kind of thing, don't read it cuz you probably won't make it through to the end.Below I will try to give a short overview of the two [...]

    9. first few pages on shamanism are quite interesting but when the mathematicals sequence, the i ching and his theory kicks in, i began to loose track

    10. The so-called intellectual Trojan Horse of the brothers Mckenna is couched in almost inscrutable language, no doubt in an overture to the scientific world of the time. Some of the transitions are a bit lacking, some segues seem rushed, and some of the wording is confusing, but if you can overlook these (minor in my view, given the scope of the content) flaws you will find inspired reasoning that exemplifies the term 'lateral thinking'.We have three months to determine if Mckenna's intuitions reg [...]

    11. Ambitious, fascinating, and a little insane. This is a peek into the initial experiences that gave birth to the McKenna brothers as we know them today. It should not be read as a scientific report of an experiment, at least not in the traditional sense, for the brothers themselves would be the first to tell you not to let the facts and science get in the way of a good story. Firstly, this is because of the colossal and alien experiences that psilocybin and related tryptamines plunges one into, a [...]

    12. Some parts of this book are interesting, especially the still culturally relevant statements about shamanism. However, a bulk of the material is very complex, and it dives deep into neuroscience, biology, mathematics, physics, etc. and pulls a bit from many areas to make their case. There was a portion of one of the last chapters in the first section that I had to skim through to keep myself from losing interest. For attempting to make the point that the validity of some theories are in "the eye [...]

    13. This is one of the most curious books out there. Written in an elaborate language of science the McKenna brothers dive deep into the mechanics of DNA molecule, schizophrenia, shamanic traditions and how it all connects with the fractal nature of the Universe, as predicted by the elaborate mathematics behind I Ching (King Wen sequence from 3000 years ago). A mindfuck indeed!BUT: the fact of the matter that there are McKenna geniuses behind this thinking makes it all more interesting. Even though [...]

    14. I wanted to like this book, and certain parts of it were thoroughly interesting, especially the first couple of chapters (Shamanism and Schizophrenia in Shamanism) and the in-depth lesson on the I Ching, but overallh. I say with full humility that I can trudge through some pretty dense shit, from Hegel to Marx to Carl Jung, but much of this was past dense and just flat out incomprehensible and incoherent. I fully believe that if you have a solid understanding something, or have thought it out, y [...]

    15. Dense and written in an academic style, the McKenna brothers put forth a pretty interesting interpretation of consciousness, reality, and time. While some of the theories on drug metabolism have since been disproven, the notion of intercalation of drug molecules is still potentially accurate. While the overarching theory of time and reality appeals to me, I don't know that their method of producing that theory is anything more than some occult numerology dressed up with some complicated mathemat [...]

    16. This book is very thought-provoking. It covers a lot of subjects such as shamanism and hallucinogens, the mathematical and fractal patterns within the I Ching, and how mathematics relates to, explains, and inhabits these things. The Timewave theory is discussed in this book, which is a concept I find endlessly fascinating. Though it isn't mentioned in the book, whether McKenna felt it was irrelevant or didn't know about it, the Timewave theory directly relates to Pierre Teilhard de Chardin's the [...]

    17. I really liked the first half particularly, in which they lay out a scientific framework of their ideas. The second part was a bit beyond my comprehension, though, so I don't know if I can accurately rate it. It was an interesting read, but it was just difficult for me to follow the concepts. That being said, many would say the opposite - that the first part was too scientifically dense to make sense, and the second part looped it all together.Regardless, they were very thorough in their writing [...]

    18. I think what McKenna says in this book (which would be the main idea), is that we seem to be stuck in our environmental conditions unless we begin to step outside the tradition, for that is when we begin to travel; when we are truly born. Told in a very obfuscating manner, but my personal bias because I can care less about Science. However, the main idea is very clear, and underneath the rather difficult language is a philosophy of non-conformity. Very brilliant and heavily researched, it can be [...]

    19. Tough tough read. The first half of the book and closer to the end is readable for the layman. This stuff gets really technical. THe idea that the mind is a hologram is introduced by Terence, and it would seem that he hasn't really heard of Bohm or Talbot or anyone else who wrote about it. Plus Time Wave zero is explained, and it's pretty awesome. Just grasping that is worth a try with this book.

    20. Another book I dabbled in many years ago only to be left blown away, from dabbling alone. This one seems to be well even if it's off the mark or too "out there" it is from my impression, totally incredible for how it makes your mind feel when following along with it. Any book that challenges our normal, egotistic understanding of space and time is good by me

    21. the book got a little too dense at time with all of the math etc but i listened to a series of lectures on the same subject and i really found the ideas here to be pretty interesting. i still think about his ideas regarding novelty and habit every once in a while.

    22. Really in depth investigation of timewave zero concept which the late Terence McKenna formulated while using DMT and hallucinogens. His timewave zero graphs world events and predicts an end in December 2012time will tell.

    23. *Not light reading material*Before reading, first read True Hallucinations and have working knowledge of the I Ching. Then, prepare to watch as the I Ching is applied to time theory with interesting results.

    24. journey thru mckennas minds journeying thru the unseen mind imagining us imagining it very hard read a holographic diagram for a mad dance with ancient space aged philosophy a bubbling cauldron of evolutions the title is the best summary

    25. Dense, drugged-out and unfortunately dated. Terrance McKenna is a much better speaker. YouTube him for a better synthesis of the evolved work he and his brother, Dennis, were just beginning to play with in this book.

    26. From the moment you pick it up, this book is a challenge! The science behind it is somewhat out of date, but the conclusions are still astounding and valid. These ideas really resonate with whats going on in the world and how it relates to consciousness in general!

    27. This book is good, but it is very technical. It's pretty dry, though quite interesting. Since the end of the world is coming up, I figured I better read Terrence McKenna's Timewave Zero theory, which also ends on December 21, 2012. Haha.

    28. "The game has been disbanded./My mind has been expanded."This book was insane in the best way possible. It makes me want to study quantum physics and to become a shaman. Recommended recommended recommended.This is how Arguelles should have been writing.

    29. Kind of hard to follow. Very technical. I have trouble with folks who try to prove the transcendental with math and science. Give me allegories, metaphors, intelligent language, mythology, archetypes, and avatars. Show me your emotions and your wisdom.

    30. just started it. a bit difficult to wrap my mind around some of the wording. written by an ethnobotanist and neurobotanist, not authors. very interesting so far!
