    One thought on “Darwin's Pharmacy: Sex, Plants, and the Evolution of the Noosphere”

    1. This is is an intriguing book that explores the rhetoric of entheogens and how people discuss the experiences they've had with entheogens. The author interweaves his own narrative and experiences with the analysis he provides about entheogens. If you are interested in entheogens this book will be a good read that provides you some fascinating insights into the subculture around them. The author also bases a lot of his discussion around the works of Timothy Leary, Robert Anton Wilson, the McKenna [...]

    2. This is one of the most fascinating books I've encountered so far. Doyle asks the right questions, and acknowledges the collective works of heavyweights. Are plants playing a much larger role influencing human sexual selection and evolution? Very plausible, and overlooked idea. A reassured message of the deep interconnected nature of all beings known as the noosphere. Let us step back and ask ourselves "who is cultivating who?"

    3. "Like any good kan, Dick's thought experiment of sending the reader to a repetitious theater resists interpretation even as it summons our attention. Only by both carrying out the rhetorical recipe, “I am seeing the chariot again,” and letting go of it, “Where was I?,” can one satisfactorily render the magnitude of ecodelic experience."The rest of the book is just as incoherent. Skip.
