Timbuktu U

In "Half asleep in frog pajamas", Tom Robbins mentions the fictitious "faculty of Timbuktu U", a list of fringe-science/counterculture gurus. The list included Robert Anton Wilson, Terence McKenna, Diane de Prima, John C. Lilly, Timothy Leary, carlos Castaneda, Andrei Codrescu, Ted Joans, Rupert Sheldrake, R D Laing and Fritjof Capra.

Reads like the actual "visiting lecturers" at the Esalen Institute at Big Sur.

I'll be writing about each of these guys over the next few days.
