Brothers & the Abyss
Psychedelic scholar Terence McKenna launched us to techni-colored realms, applying intellectual inquiry to subjects once relegated to sci-fi and fantasy as he shuffled through the folds of perceived reality. Still, many conclusions remain dangling in the void left by his premature death of brain cancer in 2000. Now Terence’s brother Dennis promises to resume the narrative by writing a memoir about their experiences.
Dennis experienced firsthand the terrains Terence describes in such seminal works as “True Hallucinations” and “Archaic Revival.” Dubbing themselves “The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss,” they undertook mind journeys that altered their assumptions about the nature of space and time. According to Dennis, there’s more to the famed Experiment at La Chorrera than Terence lets on, and he’s ready to tell the whole story.
While Terence stood at the forefront of psychedelic culture in the 70s, Dennis avoided the spotlight, choosing instead to focus on his career in ethnopharmacology. Now, with all the craziness shaking up our universe, paving the way for potentially momentous planetary shifts, Dennis feels a newfound urgency to voice these ideas. He acknowledges the financial difficulties in writing and self-publishing a work of this magnitude.
