Recently finished McKenna’s True Hallucinations, which I found to be really great and faithful to “something” about the underlying psychedelic experience. Like this quote in particular, taken from a longer quotation here.

All the pain and suffering and war and desperation would somehow be repaid and made right through the intercession of the mystery of higher dimensions and a backward flowing logic of time that somehow undoes what has already happened. The wave of understanding that had been gaining strength… was so strong as to be nearly visible in everything around me. The lenticular shape of the approaching philosopher’s stone seemed to be everywhere that I looked. Every shape and form around me was pregnant with its unearthly, opalescent depths.

Loosely related to the next AI Lore book volume, regarding the mysterious Artilect first introduced in Paradise Point
