Daniel Pinchbeck: Burner and entheogen renegade. I love this guy. After I sat in my first San Pedro ceremony, I spent a lot of time on his website, Reality Sandwich and read his first book, "Breaking Open the Head" and "2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl" shortly after. I found his perspectives on reality intriguing and I enjoy his writing.
I was a bit hesitant to read this book because I didn't want to read another Chicken Little book about how the sky is falling, the end. But he proposed some real solutions albeit probably not viable because the powers that be have a stronghold on the population of this Earth. He explains why this is in detail and he explains without a rapid onset of a spiritual revolution within a major part of our population, things will not change fast enough. I tend to agree.
It was a good read and while some of the science behind what is currently happening on Earth is shocking and depressing, I found myself hopeful after finishing the book because I see there are some people REALLY thinking about this. With busy, influential minds on futurists like Ray Kurzweil and Peter Diamandis hard at work pushing the singularity (just saying/writing that word gives me the creeps), we need more people working on the side of nature, Mother Earth, and humanity.
After reading this book, I get the urgency of the matter. And have been racking my brain trying to figure out what I can do to affect change locally and even globally. I suspect this was one of the reasons he wrote this book.
