5.0 su 5 stelle Dense, interesting, poetic, and beautiful 5 settembre 2016

Mr. Leonard Pickard has produced a wonderful book and I am happy to say that I enjoyed it very much. I was skeptical at first, having expected something 'too flowery' or 'too Victorian.' But it isn't. What it is is a book to be read slowly (as per the authors advice) and let it sort of wash over you and soak in. It is different. It seemed a bit inaccessible at first (it takes mental energy to read this book), but overall I found it to be a different, very rewarding experience.

While the Rose of Paracelsus is a challenging book to read, I found that once I got into the groove I was able to follow along fairly well. I do recommend keeping a dictionary close at hand, and to refer to it often.

To me it's a conglomeration of many different genres or styles, which I could see might put some people off. It's part prose, fiction, fantasy, historical fiction, allegory, poetry, novel, part autobiographical. It is not the tell-all autobiography that we all really want from Mr. Pickard. But I'll take it since he is still such an enigma; and to read anything from him 'in his own words' is pretty much gold if you have an interest in his story.

And let's face it, the author is a fascinating person. If half of what they say about him is to be believed, then 'planetary scale batches' indeed!

This book came along at a good time for me. Having just finished some books about LSD and the 60's (Acid Dreams and some others about the Brotherhood of Eternal Love), I inadvertently learned about William Leonard Pickard. It seems to me he might be a major missing link in the history of the 60's and psychedelics in America (and maybe the world). It will be interesting to see how this book fits into the psychedelic canon. In a future edition there is supposedly going to be an index and footnotes, etc. looking forward to that for some reason.

I'm surprised more people aren't aware of him. Especially with all the renewed interest in LSD as a therapeutic compound, and the interesting brain scans and other studies. Maybe Obama could set him free before he leaves office on the condition that he write that tell-all and give some interviews. Has anyone seen any real life interviews with him, or even a recent picture? He's got his website and it has some good articles and documents linked to it. There is the Rolling Stone article floating around on the Internet, a book by someone in the case, another by someone related to the case, a few miscellaneous phone interviews, but nothing really substantial. So many mysteries.

I can't finish this review without mentioning that 'The Rose of Paracelsus: On Secrets and Sacraments' was written by hand in a cell in a maximum security prison by a fellow human being who is paying the ultimate sacrifice for ... as far as I can tell ... just pissing off some folks in the 'old establishment'. I think he must have really pissed them off because they gave him not one but two life sentences. That's just crazy.

4.0 su 5 stelle An vast adventure, filled with poetic beauty, though at times a little dense 18 settembre 2016
Di Owen J. Maskiell - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is an epic book. The scale of it is truly awe inspiring and the way the plot weaves in and out of different characters and locations around the world creates a tale that is both vast and intricate. The thoughtful use of quotes and poems throughout lends it a unique artistic and philosophical undertone. Some descriptive passages seem to reach such ethereal heights that one begins to feel something of the psychedelic transfigurations that the author describes.
I did however struggle at times with the archaic language used and found myself having to ignore words that I did not know in order not to break the flow of reading it too much. The parts that involve the author's friends in the university also seemed a little slow to me and I found myself wanting the story to get back to the six chemists. This early addition also has a number of typos that need to be looked at as I found my reading interrupted by them at times.
Regardless of these faults, it is a powerful book that delves into unchartered territory. It is steeped in a rich sense of mystery and respect for the beauty of life yet also reveals some of the darker aspects of existense and humanity's current state. I would give it 4.5 if that was a choice, only some smaller points stop it from really being a total knockout. If you like the subject matter you'll enjoy it regardless, I did.

5.0 su 5 stelle The techoshamanic transpersonal prose brilliantly teased out of the memories of a man 26 novembre 2016

Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
The most epic journey into the inner sanctum of ascended chemical engineers. The techoshamanic transpersonal prose brilliantly teased out of the memories of a man , who instead of being hailed the hero he was, now resides in a cell like David among the lions. A wild ride through the multifaceted veils of the secret lysergic cabal and their true purpose to enlighten and evolve enclaves of humanity . Tribal self selecting trans humans potentiated with heightened awareness and unfathomable knowledge of the depths of reality and nature of all that is... We lock up that which we fear , we ostracize and condemn. The only hope to save our race from its own annihilation still reaches out to us in compassion in the form of this book from behind the bars of his cell . What an amazing human being. The book is reminiscent of the great works of literature known for generations to come a true classic of our time, and if true then it belongs to a category of one of the great epics as well.

So far through this enigmatic and eloquent, I have made it to page 100. I am dumbfounded, and so enthralled by the style of Pickard. I plan on leaving a more detailed review after I've finished it, but I had to come leave a stellar review; moreover, I am so surprised that there aren't more people discussing this work!

This book is a "gift" to humanity and the planet.

May all sentient beings benefit from the potential of Albert's discovery and William's literary & passionate work.

The mind can evolve and may love, compassion and unity be the primary sacrament fueling its development.
