THE POSTHUMAN ~

"Hippies were often misconstrued as being

antimaterialistic and Zen inclined, a misconception

aided by poets Gary Snyder, Joanne Kyger, Diane

di Prima, and Philip Whalen, who were Zen

trained. In fact, the baroque imagination of LSD

led most young counterculturists away from

emptiness and toward fulsome teeming matters like

instant communication, better bodies, cosmetics,

immortality, and youth potions, all of which

translated two decades later into the internet and

biotech."
