The Plumed Serpent returns, with Daniel Pinchbeck as its herald. Like a Hermetic shaman Pinchbeck braves Wotanic netherworlds and returns with a giant cauldron of poetic mead for the tribe to savor and digest.
For those who are not inclined toward experimenting with the substances, or suffering the environments that were experienced in researching this book, the good news is, you can journey far, and get real high just by reading it. Much of the difficult work has been done. For those who lean more in the direction of psychic and psychologically adventurous pursuits, this book will serve as a balanced and masterfully written primer.
It would be possible to read, enjoy, and learn from "2012 - The Return of Quetzalcoatl" without having read Daniel Pinchbeck's previous book, "Breaking Open the Head" (BOTH). But to really be able to appreciate the importance of "2012" do yourself a favor and read BOTH if you have not already done so.
Reading "Breaking Open the Head" changed my orientation toward occult and esoteric pursuits. I read it in the autumn of 2005 just after the Katrina and Rita disasters took place in America. Apocalypse when? How about now? The voice that spoke in the pages of BOTH was both adventurous and compassionate, and was void of cynicism and spooky control trips. There was none of the grandiose posturing that seems to be a part of many books that are written from a standpoint that is sympathetic to shamanism, the occult, and the use of hallucinogenic substances.
In "Breaking Open the Head" the destruction of the World Trade Center is viewed with an eye for the cosmic significance of the event. Pinchbeck pursued a shamanic path that involved travel to exotic locales, astral encounters, hallucinogenic terrors, and occult hangovers, in order to heal elements of self that were wounded by what took place on 9/11.
"2012" takes up where "Breaking Open the Head" left off. The use of hallucinogens to induce other worldly experiences is still a main theme. So is an understanding of the occult world. Pinchbeck's travels lead him to experience numerous shamanic initiations. The book is grounded in sound Jungian principles, and there is a sincere appreciation for the works of Rudolf Steiner that is expressed. Artful integration of alternative themes are employed that give credence to the experience of `Other' and awareness is created of imminent and drastic alterations for life on this planet that are just around the corner.
"2012 -The Return of Quetzalcoatl" provides eloquent insight into the idea of the forthcoming global paradigm shift that many believe will occur around the time of the winter solstice, December 21st, 2012, the date that marks the end of the Mayan calendar.
The book ends with no less than an encounter with the Aztec/Mayan deity, Quetzalcoatl, and a realization that the only hope for survival of whatever it is that the future holds involves a kind of syncretism or adjustment of belief systems that will allow for the recognition and integration of humanities' dark side. It is pretty heavy, but it is hopeful. You have to read the book to really appreciate it.
This is my first venture into the world of 3d television. I have yet to try the Panasonic glasses so I was conservative in my review of these glasses. They work very well. I had no trouble getting them to sync up with my television. I have to wear them down towards the tip of my nose...not because of the glasses but because I wear glasses and have a tri-focal prescription and have to position the 3d glasses so to avoid the "lines" in my own glasses. All in all...a great buy. Update 11-14-2011: I now have a pair of the the third generation Panasonic 3d glasses and did a side-by-side comparison. My findings are that there is virtually no difference in picture quality, or any other issue. They are bulkier than the Panasonics but find no glaring differences in 3d quality. The Panasonic brand features a mechanical slide on/off switch whereas the Sainsonic uses a momentary contact switch. Based on my experience I feel that the slide switch will fail before the momentary contact style of the Sainsonic brand. Not a big deal...just my observation. Unless you sit there and actually play with the switch on the Panasonic brand this will probably never become an issue. As to which one to buy...that will be your personal choice. If you want to save money buy the Sainsonic brand. If you absolutely have to have the Panasonic brand then go for it by all means. I have both and find neither to be a disappointment...ah yes!...forgot to mention...you do get a velvet pouch to store the Sainsonics in...the Panasonics have no storage except the box they come in.
