The Far-Off Land: An Attempt At a Philosophical Evaluation of the Hallucinogenic Drug Experience
by Eugene Seaich
In The Far Off Land Eugene Seaich discusses the perennially fascinating topic of such mind-altering drugs as mescaline, psilocybin, and LSD, both how they appear in Nature and in the laboratory. This road has been traveled before, but Eugene takes a fascinating detour. He goes back millennia, glimpses the future, and goes deeply within his own psyche leading to a better understanding of the mind and our consciousness. These chemicals can be used as tools to help better lives, cure mental illness, transcend our conciousness and ultimitly to improve humanity . The reader might start reading about this "far off land," thinking that is an exotic destination. But after a few chapters, the engrossing prose will be reminiscent of one's home turf.-Stanley Krippner, Ph.D.
