Entheogen Books

There are plenty of general psychedelics-and-religion bibliographies already; it's nearly common knowledge by now.  There are already about ten books about entheogens in Western religions.  I will merely provide links to such comprehensive sites.

It is great that people are making a strong connection now between entheogens and the origin of essentially all religions, but this new common knowledge lacks a philosophy and theory of metaphysics and time.

I am going to be very selective and strive for books that especially support the convergence of the following areas.

o  Entheogens in the origin of religions, particularly the mystery religions.

o  Religious experiencing rationally and clearly explained.

o  Judeo-Christianity as mystery religion.

o  Metaphysics of time, theory of frozen time, including hidden-variables determinism and tenseless time

o  Personal control agency

I will not provide much coverage of these areas: shamanism, most Eastern religion, 20th-century psychedelics history.

http://www.erowid.org/library/books/zen_drugs.shtml - Zen, Drugs, and Mysticism.  A dubious position, but a standard point of reference.

http://www.erowid.org/library/books/minds_i.shtml -- articles about self and personal agency.
