An unnumbered issue of one of the strangest publications to come out of the early-70s hippie new-spirituality milieu. Parodic and satiric in tone, the publication was a hub of early Discordian material, revealing the paradigm’s origins in LSD-fueled Timothy Leary new spirituality, Indian spiritual practices, and conspiratorial thinking.
