Banyen's Description: 

The Evolutionary Mind brings us the sweetest of those high-octane mind-play conversations, the “trialogues” between three old and excellent friends, all highly original thinkers: “morphogeneticist” Rupert Sheldrake, psychedelic visionary Terence McKenna, and chaos mathematician Ralph Abraham, Their passion is to break out of paradigms that retard our evolution and to explore new possibilities. Through challenge and synergy they venture where few have gone before, leading their readers on quite a journey of discovery. Their discussions focus on the evolution of the mind, the role of psychedelics, skepticism, the psychic powers of animals, the structure of time, the life of the heavens, the nature of God, and transformations of consciousness.

 Jam session fireworks ensue as they explore the latest developments in scientific thought, the spread of Green Consciousness, the importance of visionary experience, the source of current ecological and political crises, and conflicting images of the apocalypse. And it is astonishing to hear these scientists consider the meanings of the word soul, the importance of the unconscious, and the significance of discarnate entities such as animal souls, angels, and faery folk.

Other chapters in the book deal with the resacralization of the world and education in the New World Order. Abraham, McKenna, and Sheldrake call for a revolutionary reinterpretation of spirituality which would place it in the center of human affairs. They outline the lineaments of an alternative educational system for youth involving workshops, learning through experience, and initiations.

“A treasure trove of fruitful ideas, that deserve to be savored, like the finest of wines, and reflected upon, like the most precious of jewels." —David Jay Brown, Shift Magazine

Rupert Sheldrake is a biologist and author of many books including The Sense of Being Stared At. Ralph Abraham is a mathematician, one of the pioneers of chaos theory. The late Terence McKenna was a scholar of shamanism, ethno-botanist, psychedelic researcher and author of Food of the Gods.
