by Terence McKenna, Ralph Abraham and Rupert Sheldrake
First published as Trialogues at the Edge of the West
Explore the relationships between chaos, creativity, and imagination, and their connection to the soul of the world. Join Ralph Abraham, mathematician and leader in the new science of chaos, Terence McKenna, shamanologist and ethno-pharmcologist, and Rupert Sheldrake, acclaimed biologist and originator of the theory of morphogenetic fields, as they "trialogue" on such questions as: How can chaos contribute to our lives? Is Armageddon a self-fulfilling prophecy? How can scientists and mystics share the same planet?
Chaos, Creativity and Cosmic Consciousness challenges us to the deepest levels of thought as it calls into question our current views of reality, morality, and the nature of life in the universe.
