Well, crap. I guess we're doing this now.
Welcome to the show.
I’d planned on starting this over the weekend but I guess we’re going to try it out now.
Alright, so this is Trenchant Edges. Trenchant as in Trench, as in digging. Edges like you find on maps.
This newsletter is kind of an open research project designed to let me create high quality, long-form content about stuff that interests me and also never be homeless again.
My crippled ass can’t roll with those punches anymore. So I’ve got to write.
You, I assume, are here from my work and play at I Acknowledge Psychedelic Class Warfare Exists. A fine, moderately sized facebook page I’ve been running for five years now. It’s really taken off in the last year but facebook’s regular let’s say naughtiness has me looking for a better platform to engage on.
For the next 3 months, we’ll be doing 3 posts/week. Tuesday and Thursday subscribers will get some insider scoop on the research I’m doing. Sunday mornings will be a more public, link-focused affair.
If all goes well, I’ll end up with an extra stream of income and y’all will gain enlightened on our special topics.
There will be more of these as we discuss the work. But for now, our focus will be on Terence McKenna’s Timewave Zero & Novelty theory. Exploring their development and growth from Terence’s time in Amazon in the 70s to the apparent fizzling of his millenarian promises.
Maybe we’ll even find some people trying to rescue the theory from its own failed prediction.
Anyway, I’ll talk to you again on Sunday.
