Great point about these differences, I was waiting for it soo long.

About Terence, I've recently read True Hallucinations and most valuable as a way to learn how these people were seeing the world. I mean it's strange and colourful and made me interested in other books and ways of thinking, but some of it was obviously wishful thinking. And their experiments were really silly.

And there is of course this scene when after return to US he is talking to scientist at college, and he tells him that his ideas "aren't even wrong".

And Terence writes something like "and that was end of my relationship with mainstream science". And I'm like "dude, why are you giving up so easily?". So my expectations weren't so high.

PS would love to read more about this experiment, because even after reading TH I'm still not sure.
