The Alchemical Dream

Terence McKenna philosophizes the alchemical hub of the 16th century and ponders its history. He exposes the true nature of union between spirit, mind and matter through the alchemical process. Trans-mutating meager metals into gold but was not the ultimate amalgamation, the dream of the real was fusing spirit into matter. He notes comparisons of practicing alchemy to the practice of shamanism, in that Alchemist were looking for the philosophers stone when Shamanism has already found it.
