    I guess I'll have to read more of his book to tell what his schtick is...

    Here's an interview from about a week ago.

    JF and Phil sit down with Erik Davis to discuss his new book, "High Weirdness: Drugs, Esoterica, and Visionary Experience in the Seventies."

    In this masterwork of weird scholarship, Davis explores the simultaneously luminous and obscure worlds of three giants of Seventies counterculture: Terence McKenna, Robert Anton Wilson, and Philip K. Dick. Their psychonautical legacy serve as fuel for a deep-delving conversation on Davis' own ontological leanings, yearnings, and hesitations. We touch on his philosophical development since the release of Techgnosis in 1998, the meaning of "weird naturalism," the primacy of the aesthetic, the uses and abuses of anthropotechnics, the challenges of tightrope-walking across bottomless chasms, and lots more.

    You know what...I don't like this guy DT... He's academic when he shouldn't be and flippant when he shouldn't be. Philosophy is serious and spirituality even moreso. And this guy is missing the essence of both...just my opinion, of course...and it may change after more listening. He just bugs me. I've known people that 'look' like him and think like him. He is way too proud of himself. He lacks intellectual gravitas...
