Shelves: art, psychedelics
This book is full of phenomenal visionary artwork but, as with most works of a psychedelic nature, it includes delusional New Age philosophies which judge the non-dualist worldview (that modern science shows us) to be nihilistic. Grey is a marvellous artist but it is a shame that he had to invoke the supernatural to give psychedelic experiences and life in general any meaning.
