#psychedelic #fiction ✱ Victor Pelevin

my mescalito trip

Castaneda’s most beautiful trick was based on the popular belief in the existence of fiction and nonfiction. This belief takes it for granted that there is a qualitative difference between two books if the first one tells a success story that never happened to a fictitious character, and the second one tells a success story that will never happen to you. In a way, this difference does exist. But it is not a difference between two books, it is a difference between two settings of the reader’s mind.

The samizdat incarnation of a Castaneda book was a photocopy of the typewritten translation (into Russian). That was the reason why the access to a Xerox machine could drastically improve your position in the esoteric hierarchy.

(Peyote) gives you a little side effect that suddenly makes the side center and the center side. With all his tricks and failures, Castaneda shines high above the blurred crowd of many a “distinctive voice of his/her own” on the steep road from obscurity to oblivion.”
