Terence McKenna and Mystic Fire's Sheldon Rochlin teamed up in the mid-1990s to make this rich and beautiful film. Filmed in Prague, it transports us into the alchemical renaissance of King Frederick V of Bohemia to show how this early attempt at creating an alchemical kingdom led to the European Renaissance, Cartesian science, and the beginnings of rationalism in the Western mindset. McKenna gives his finest performance as John Dee, court magician for England's Queen Elizabeth I - a worthy eulogy to his genius.
IOriginally titled Coincidencia Oppositorum: The Unity of Opposites with Terence portraying his usual erudite rendition of the Irish Bard, this filmed classic takes us on a journey into the alchemical renaissance of Europe.
"It sounds incredible, but in this film, McKenna outlines the political economic and alchemical history of Europe and the entire hermetic tradition virtually from it's inception to the 17th Century. Like all skilled storytellers, he draws the viewer along with him into a half known world of intrigue, espionage and mystery. The background scenery is gorgeous and the film is stunning in it's cinematography. With this film, the viewer gets more than expected. It is truly a legacy for modern mankind.

"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction

An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
