This is perhaps one of the most potentially influential performances ever recorded. I say 'potentially' because I don't believe enough people nor all the ideal candidates have seen or heard it (there is a video release of the event as well which includes the visuals by Rose X). This is not just a pinnacle of musical production; it is not just a profound message given by an iconic legend throughout the subculture of humankind: it is a testament to the miracle that we know as life; a miracle that is only possible by the participation of all life.

Whether you have never experienced this performance or happened to be fortunate enough to be there in the flesh while it was recorded, I assure you if you listen to it right now - something amazing within you will awaken.

There will never be another Terrance McKenna a brilliant and daring psychonaut who spoke passionately about the connection of mind body and ancient chemistry found in the natural world. In addition there will never be a more polished album by Space Time Continuum as this collaborative effort is an apex in Jonah's catalog of brilliant electronic music releases. This is timeless music transcending cultural and musical deviations and crafted to take YOU the listener on a aural journey beyond the mundane borderlands of the concrete jungle you dwell in!

I reaaaally don't like spoken word at all. Having said that "speaking in tongues" is an amazing track.

It seems that FSOL have been inspired by Space Time Continuum to make Cascade.

Spacetime Continuum teamed up with psychedelic guru Terence McKenna for ALIEN DREAMTIME, and at first, it seems like a amalgamation of early-90s ambient: didgeridoo, slow acid lines, a meandering and nasal spoken word, subdued beats. It's important to remember, though, that this was a live event, and McKenna uses it as a lecture (or for "Speaking in Tongues," which is just as strange as it sounds). Of course, this somewhat diminishes the importance of the music, so when McKenna takes a break, such as on "Transient Generator," Spacetime Continuum lets his own psychedelic experience come to the fore. "Aerobatic," similarly, has the Detroitian warmth and sparkle that Sharp would develop further on his later albums. "Timewave Zero" goes on a bit too long, but eventually washes over the listener. The album needs more dreamtime, less alien.

Timewave Zero is awesome! Impatient listeners will probably be disheartened when the music comes to a halt in the middle, but it ends like a novel. McKenna's speech borders on knowledgable to bull honky, but very uniquely nasal and characteristic of him. Sharp uses his trademark sounds that are a precursor to Sea Biscuit. I still would never smoke DMT if it made me talk like McKenna, though. The album is of course meant to be listened from beginning to end, but the journey is rather enjoyable throughout.
