Pearce has written a very compelling work arguing that certain common threads in the Neolithic experience and belief systems from Asia to Europe (and beyond) are, in fact, the result of altered states of consciousness common to all humans. However, when I read this, to me the conclusion to be drawn from his evidence is more likely a far different one: cultural diffusion. And if that is, in fact, the case, then he's onto something far more substantive and earth-shattering than he apparently realizes...
