Banyen's Description: 

In this book of “trialogues” (previously published as Trialogues at the Edge of the West), we listen in on the late psychedelic visionary and shamanologist Terence McKenna, brilliant biologist and originator of the morphogenetic fields theory Rupert Sheldrake, and mathematician and chaos theory scientist Ralph Abraham as the three of them spend a few days together at Esalen. Stir deeply, and voila! These are three frolicsome sprites at play in the field of the universe, a sort of industrial-strength visionary brainpower on the loose. Read this book, and join the play along the edges of creativity, chaos, and imagination.

The authors’ observations call into question our current views of reality, morality, and the nature of life in the universe. They challenge the reader to the deepest levels of thought with wide-ranging investigations of the ecology of inner and outer space, the role of chaos in the dynamics of human creation, and the resacralization of the world. Among the provocative questions the authors raise: Is Armageddon a self-fulfilling prophecy? Are we humans the imaginers or the imagined? Are the eternal laws of nature still evolving? What is the connection between physical light and the light of consciousness?

Part ceremony, part old-fashioned intellectual discussion, these trialogues are an invitation to a new understanding of what Jean Houston, in her foreword, calls “the dreamscapes of our everyday waking life.” It should be required reading for anyone who believes that science and spirituality cannot and should not interact.

“Trialogues records the exciting intellectual friendship of three amazing minds pushing to the edge of history in search of a new consciousness blending scientific observation, mythical imagination, and visionary speculation.” —Riane Eisler, author of The Chalice and the Blade



Publisher’s Description: 

In this vibrant discussion, three of the most original thinkers of our time blend science, creativity, intellect, and traditional wisdom to expand our current views of reality. Sheldrake is an acclaimed biologist, originator of the morphogenetic field theory. McKenna, the late author and lecturer, was a psychelic visionary and shamanologist. Abraham is a chaos theory scientist. Together they explore what Jean Houston calls the dreamscapes of our everyday waking life.
