Yes, shame on SciAm for popularizing such New-Agey
fluff. And shame on me for having such a morbid
curiosity about such a disreputable scholar as Carlos
Castaneda. Suspicious minds might even suspect a
conspiracy as Castaneda has a new Web site to promote
his Tensegrity videos just as the magazine hits the
newstands with such lovely pictures of cells looking
like some sort of disembodied spiritual entities
radiating from the cover.
