From the back cover: "At the heart of this seminal work is the revolutionary idea that human consciousness did not begin far back in animal evolution but was a learned process that emerged, through cataclysm and catastrophe, from a hallucinatory mentality only three thousand years ago and that it is still developing. The implications of this scientific paradigm extend into virtually every aspect of our psychology, our history, out culture, our religion -- indeed our future. My favorite reviewer said: "This book's and this man's ideas may be the most influential, not to say controversial, of the second half of the twentieth century. It renders whole shelves of books obsolete." - William Harrington, Columbus Dispatch This is a rather dense book with a large index, and I find it more useful as a reference book than anything else. It has a lot of non-mainstream ideas about consciousness, psychology, culture, architecture, and spirituality. Some may find it a little dry, I find it fascinating.
