Haute Library

Just been reading an absolute headfuck of a book called 'LIFETIDE" by lyall watson. Its amazing how synchrnoicity works sometimes. It unifies and extrapolates most if not all of the theories dancing round my head at the moment and gives me absolutely acres of new things to ponder. The combination of pure science and jungian speculation are superb. I'm only 1/3 of the way through it and i'd certainly have to list it as a major source of goodness for all inquisitive souls. It begins with the line 'now is not the time for certainty..' *swoons*
Anyway-i wanted to start a thread where we could post a list of recommended reading or 'brain books', anything that we have found either enlightening,puzzling or merely immensely readable.
I'll start by suggesting some classics that really deal with the nub of what i envisaged this community to be about

1.ANYTHING by HERMAN HESSE
My all time favourite writer,but of particular fondness to me are both NARZISS AND GOLDMUND and THE GLASS BEAD GAME
2.QUANTUM PSYCHOLOGY,PROMETHEUS RISING and COSMIC TRIGGER by ROBERT ANTON WILSON
Unting east and west,science and mysticysm,high and low brow in an very thought provoking and applicable fashion.
3.NEUROPOLITIQUE ,CHAOS AND CYBERCULTURE and FLASHBACKS by TIMOTHY LEARY
Okay so theres a lot of fanciful hard ons for technology and misguided futurism in 'chaos and cyberculture' but the man is a genius and his life story immensely readable.

Some other authors who have been an immense influence include ,ALDOUS HUXLEY,GEORGE ORWELL,and WILHELM REICH.
I'll add more to this list shortly...in the meantime please contribute so i might have some new memes to hunt out at the library.
