Crowdfunding effort launches for Terence McKenna archives
An effort has been launched at GoFundMe to benefit the Terence McKenna archives. There are several different projects that will benefit from the money, and the catalog of goodies you get if you decide to chip in is huge, so I won't try to summarize it here. Go look at the website.
One of the reward items, at $100, is "Robert Venosa's Illuminatus with text by Terence McKenna. Large, hardcover fine art book. "A fantastic journey into the canyons of the imagination." -T. McKenna"
On Twitter, @advantardeodus remarked to me (privage message), "The Venosa art book 'Illuminatus' could be the link to the H R Giger art piece called Illuminatus as he is mentioned in relation to the book on Amazon."
A $2,012 donation results in a bunch of goodies, but you also get to make "focused research requests" to the archivist. Are there any RAW fans out there with money? @advantardeodus also points out, "The $2,012 donation level could perhaps lead someone to ask for a deep look into any RAW connections."
It always stings a little when I hear about the McKenna or Leary archives. There's no comparable Robert Anton Wilson or Robert Shea archive, alas.
