I’d never heard of this guy before, but I like this quote about Burning Man:
Burning Man is the post-modern continuation of those ancient festivals-it is a miraculous manifestation of the “Archaic Revival” described by Terence McKenna. On an occult level, I almost suspect that Burning Man is creating a model, on the astral plane, for how all human communities will exist in the future. One amazing aspect of Burning Man is how the event penetrates into one’s dream life-after going there, I dreamt about some version of it almost every night for many months afterwards. I know that many people have the same reaction. How could the egalitarian, freedom-oriented, cashless, utopian form of Burning Man be implemented in a more permanent way, or on a larger scale? I have no clue.

His book – Breaking Open the Head – is well worth reading.
I did a review for it here:
…but don’t take my word for it. Check it out for yourself.

Yow, Klintron! You’re back in full effect! Thanks for all the links. 🙂 Now I need to get caught up myself…
Re: Pinchbeck. I also highly recommend Breaking Open The Head. A really great book for many reasons.
