The Library

A generation that doesn't read has no past and has no future...

Welcome to my online library. The library is undergoing expansion after 22 years.
I'm adding books that deal with the real world and it's problems in a new section at the bottom
There will be books that are not commonly available online, and that deal with what's going on.

All books are offered under FAIR USE terms for study and the information contained. The so-called
"copyrights" belong solely to the authors, or whoever else who has bought or stolen the rights to the
contents, usually for the sole purpose of censoring them, ie - keeping them out of reach.

Some of these books are NOT available anywhere else online at this time. If you download them,
read them!

There will be several sections here: books on psychedelics, articles on psychedelics, books on the
history of the psychedelic culture of the sixties and the Haight-Ashbury quarter in San Francisco
in the sixties. In the new section at the bottom, there will be books that give historical information
that help to explain why the world is as fucked up as it is.


LSD, My Problem Child - Albert Hofmann A personal account of the history of the discovery of LSD, written by the man who first created it and uncovered its effects - required reading.

The Psychedelic Experience - Timothy Leary, Richard Alpert, Ralph Metzner The classic guidebook for using psychedelics.
Based on The Tibetan Book Of The Dead. Possibly the most important book on the subject of psychedelics.

The Doors Of Perception - Aldous Huxley The single most famous literary description of a psychedelic experience, written in 1954 by the author of Brave New World, one of the most brilliant minds of the 20th century, on his first experience with mescaline.

The Secret Chief - Conversations with a pioneer of the underground psychedelic therapy movement.
By Myron Stolaroff
Highly recommended reading in order to gain an appreciation of the books and articles above.

Thanatos To Eros - 35 Years of Psychedelic Exploration
By Myron Stolaroff

From the Preface:

This book is the story of how I overcame thanatos, the drive for death, to elicit eros, the drive for life.

The informed use of psychedelic substances has been a key element in my personal growth. The material presented here is not intended in any way to encourage the use of illicit substances. Nor for that matter, the uninformed use of any substance, licit or illicit. The substances described in this book are powerful, and can easily be misused. They should be employed only with integrity and a thorough knowledge of their characteristics, both benefits and adverse affects.


The Original Captain Trips - an article by Todd Brendan Fahey

Using Psychedelics Wisely - an outstanding article by Myron J. Stolaroff, early psychedelic researcher.
Highly recommended reading.

Are Psychedelics Useful In The Practice Of Buddhism? - an article by Myron J. Stolaroff, early psychedelic researcher.

The author describes his lifelong methods of using psychedelics to aid his own spiritual development, and responds to criticism from within the professional community. He discusses his choice of which psychedelic to use, as well as the appropriate doses for achieving each desired result along the way.

A talk by Ram Dass, 1969

Ram Dass (formerly Dr. Richard Alpert, PhD), along with Dr. Timothy Leary and Dr. Ralph Metzner, conducted the early experiments on the effects of LSD at Harvard, both on themselves and their associates, as well as on volunteer participants ranging from divinity students, through artists and musicians, to prisoners and alcoholics.

Frustrated by the inevitable 'coming down' from the clear and lucid state of the psychedelically-liberated mind and the return back to 'ordinary consciousness', he set out to the Far East in search of an answer to this problem. He tells his story in this talk given live to an audience of young people at the Hebb Auditorium, University of Vancouver, in 1969, shortly after returning from India. With wit and compassion, he creates an intimate atmosphere in which to consider the meaning of life from a unique viewpoint.

This talk is 2 hours and 18 minutes in length, and anyone considering listening to it is encouraged to create a comfortable, peaceful, and uninterruptable space in which to experience it to its fullest. It is offered here in the hope that you may find it an opportunity to share in a profound and potentially enlightening event. Consider treating this as if you had the good fortune to go and hear him speak.

Storming Heaven, LSD and the American Dream by Jay Stevens
Without question, the best-written account of LSD and its influence in the Sixties. It steers a clear and unbiased path through the events of the times, covering just about everything. Unlike just about every other book on the Sixties, this one has very few factual errors - only one or two small details are inaccurate in the entire book. A real pleasure to read.

The City And The Stars, by Arthur C. Clarke, published in 1956

The Revolt Against Civilization was written in 1922. It reads as if it could have been written yesterday (currently May 2022).

It's a book that presents a historical perspective of what was going on just after the first world war, and ten years before the second world war.

No matter who you are, you will read about things in this book that you had no idea had happened, or that would happen in the future. The book allows you to see and understand why things are the way they are in the present time (May 2022). You won't easily find this book on the internet.

The Revolt Against Civilization


A Handbook for Right-Wing Youth consists of essays selected from throughout Evola’s lifetime, but most especially from the post-war era, when youth across the Western world had thrown their societies into chaos with protests, civil unrest, and by defying conventional mores.

According to Evola, the problem was not with the youth themselves, given that he viewed the inquisitive and seeking mentality associated with the young as essential toward opening oneself to the wisdom of Tradition, but rather with the fact that post-war Western civilisation itself had come to venerate youthfulness over maturity, thus leaving the young without any guidance or authority.

Evola believed that it was only by channelling the energies of the rebellious youth into the political Right — not the false Right of today, but rather that Right which represents the timeless principles which stem from before the advent of liberalism — thus restoring the West to a healthy and organic condition once again.

In these essays, he defines those principles which must be undertaken by youth — not just by those young in age, but those young in spirit as well — if they are to gain mastery not only over their societies, but also over themselves.

As such, while this is a book aimed at the young, it is not exclusively for them.

A Handbook for Right-Wing Youth

There will be more additions to this section.

Most of the above books may be available in print at the present time (May, 2022). I'm presenting them here under Fair Use terms for examination and the valuable knowledge they contain. Persons interested in serious study of these texts should purchase them from their local independent bookseller, or lacking that option, should buy them online at the usual places.

In any case, knowledge of what came before your time will help you to understand why the world is as it is now, and will help you to pass on the living truth to others, thus helping the cause of bringing some much-needed Light into the world we live in. Be the change you want to see, THINK FOR YOURSELF, make up your own mind, and may the pure Light within you guide your way on. Happy trails!

more to come!
