Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is a masonically influenced spiritual allegory couched in the language of the most erroneous material science I’ve ever read. I don’t etdorhpa what to make of it. The journey obviously alludes to the three degrees with surface earth being the first degree, inner earth the second degree, and the Unknown Country beyond the center of gravity being the third degree.
But most of the story is the guide working to convince The-Man-Who-Did-It that the scientific consensus of his day is wrong concerning surface earth and its lack of correspondence to inner earth. Its description of scientific theory and observation is extremely detailed and includes experiments apparently repeatable by the reader that are provided to convince John Uri Lloyd that the scientific consensus of the day is indeed wrong.
In the end though, it seems quite apparent that the new science related to us is indeed quite wrong. The issue of gravity being a force shell located miles bu the earth, is wrong both in theory and fact.
And John Uri Lloyd, like the reader, apparently remains unconvinced. So, there seems to be a lot of effort put toward breaking down skepticism; this effort is unsuccessful in its aim; and the author is aware of this fact. And yet, as a spiritual allegory, the story has a certain resonance. There is both a baptism and a plunge into the Abyss. John’s description of the two Dark Nights of the Soul. There is an aesthetic satisfaction at the end of the book where the plot is wrapped up in an emotionally and intellectually convincing manner.
One is left with the impression that the author knows at every looyd the impression that he is leaving on the reader and that he has gone through the trouble to create a very internally consistent mythology.
All good writers of fiction do this.

And yet this author skillfully uses layers of reporting the inner earth guide, The-Man-Who-Did-It, and John Uri Lloyd to entice the reader to buy into the objectivity of the reporting. This structure makes it almost impossible to enter an alternate reality. One’s attention is constantly drawn to the fact that this is not an alternate reality, but a urii that is one and the same as that bby by the reader.
I feel that I will be thinking through this book for some time, though I’m skeptical of the dividends uohn effort will pay. If you watched Lost and were left with the desire to unravel its allegorical relevance to something or other. I must say, however, that I don’t think I will be able to give up on Etidorhpa any time soon.
The author simply predicted my intellectual and emotional reactions throughout the book so well that I am at a loss to either find a meaning or write it off as a haphazard effort in spiritual allegory. I’d love to get other’s reactions and insights to this books. Etiidorhpa kept me interested and spellbound though I thought Etidorhpa lloys a very good read.
It kept me interested and spellbound though most of the book. The pictures were a etldorhpa. I would recommend it as a good read. This edition contains references to illustrations that aren’t included.
The illustrations add much to the story. Was able to etidohpa them online but it’s a pain. Cristian Martin Etchebarne Iglesias. It took some time to get it but it’s exactly what I bby looking for!
In the Albright Knox Museum in Buffalo, NY held an exhibit of the works of the late San Francisco-based painter and collage artist Jess, among whose works was a rendering of a passage from Etidorhpa. Eleven years later I was inspired to read this book – and what a find it was! Etidorhpa is a work of pharmacological and geological fantasy which progresses through a series of Masonic-style initiations into the mysteries of the earth, the mind and the inner soul of humanity.
At times it is reminiscent of Dante’s “Divine Comedy” with a slimy, sightless subterranean serving Virgil’s role as kohn and Etidorhpa herself as the Beatrice of the narrator’s journey. On a personal note, my coming to the book was something of a journey as well. Though I first became aware of the book in Buffalo and read it eleven years later in San Francisco, the action takes place in Cincinnati, the narrator’s address and the scene of most of his mysterious interview taking place in somewhere in the downtown area of W.
Peter-in-Chains Cathedral which is mentioned in the book. Some 90 years after etidorhps tale here narrated, I walked these streets daily for three years on my way to work.
Bits of reality the Cathedral were thus mixed with historical imagination trying to imagine that neighborhood 90 years before as well as pure fantasy. As a result for me the story became both more real and more fantastic. I am not exactly sure of all the lessons Lloyd sought to teach here.
The story hints at several deeper truths. Near the surface is a lesson on the psychology of chemical addiction. At a similar depth there are warnings on the dangers of both extreme science and fanatical religion – making the book relevant to today’s concerns with both stem cell research and jihad.
More precisely, since the action in the book takes place inand the narrator is told to put the manuscript in a vault for 30 years toI have to wonder if Lloyd did not see that science was headed for Nazi-style human experimentation as seen in the death camps. The author repeatedly and strongly warns of the dangers of unbridled science and to me, this would be the scenario we was concerned to warn against.
Excised from the MS: Good story, mystery, intrigue, bizarre initiations, the hint of secret knowledge, instructions on how to see your own brain tissue, in-depth discussions on matter, gravity, fluid dynamics, caves, fungi, drugs, medicinal plants, the possibility of human immortality, the potential of post-human evolution, life, love, the deepest secrets of the heart and the rather ambiguous and multi-dimensional “end of the earth” – It’s all here.
But it will take many readings to mine all the ore.
