Unlocking living DNA and refolding it like origami was what The Book spoke of. The first key, the hallucinogen, was the easy part. But beneath the transcendent surface is a cloaked memory, which Dome believes he must resist. Can he reconcile it?
Dome’s new roommate, Kemma, is back from Cali to join him on the journey of the Great Awakening. She’s something like a genius, and also a surfer/MMJ grower/DJ with a penchant for local craft breweries and magic brownies. Becoming much more than an epic voyage, the five keys have the power to unlock the greatest potential of humanity.
Imagine the duo from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas on a journey for The Celestine Prophecy in a world like A Wrinkle in Time. That mash-up is the realm where the Fifth Key exists.
The Fifth Key is short novel from the Arizona shaman, Paul Caldeaux. Mashing visionary concepts and extravagant fun, it is told through the modern eyes of Dome, an irreverent psychonaut that discovers something much deeper. Dome’s search is symbolized by an over-the-top journey to transform the human race and uncover the true nature of reality.
With spats of tongue-in-cheek humor mixed with eye-opening aha! moments, this extremely fun listen is not only surprising but refreshing.
Engaging and action packed, The Fifth Key is a satisfying listen that easily blends thought provoking passages with moments of off-color, sometimes screwball comedy. Quantum concepts and philosophies are effortlessly weaved by Caldeaux. Steeped in a 21st century nootropic, microdosing culture, it is a full on symbolic exploration of LSD as an entheogen for the purpose of mental breakthroughs and ultimately, human evolution.
