Lovecraft and Derleth are both incorporated into the narrative, whose central concerns are Wilson’s philosophical ideals, which the mind parasites’ dastardly aims neatly encapsulate. These parasites, we learn, have been with us for centuries, but didn’t make their mark until the end of the eighteenth century.

One of the great works of science fiction ever written. The author Colin Henry Wilson (26 June – 5 December ) was an English writer, philosopher and novelist.

He also wrote widely on true crime, mysticism and the paranormal. This book explores one of the most puzzling occult dilemmas - the mind parasite.4/4(58). The Mind Parasites is a lovely piece of fiction that stirs up the dust in the already cloudy field of conspiracy theory.

Working partly with facts, partly with fringe science and down-right occluded metaphysics, Wilson weaves a story of the awakening of the collective consciousness of mankind/5. The story is about scientists discovering that humanity has a ‘mind parasite’ that confuses him, keeps his mind clouded and then proceeds to suck the life force out of man leaving him just enough to keep living until ‘at 80 he dies of boredom’/5(71).

Colin Wilson has blended the dark vision of an H. Lovecraft, the power of an H. Wells and his own unique philosophy of evolutionary existentialism in a stunningly powerful story of imagination, The Mind Parasites is a truly dangerous navel, dangerous in the sense that the eminent British philosopher, Alfred North Whitehead, speaks of in his.

For over years, mind parasites have been lurking in the deepest layers of human consciousness, feeding on human life force and steadily gaining a foothold on the planet. Now they threaten humanity’s extinction. They can be fought with one weapon only: the mind, pushed to—and beyond—its : Monkfish Book Publishing Company.

This book explores one of the most puzzling occult dilemmas - the mind by: 6. "Mind Parasites" is a strange and often disappointing science-fiction novel, especially considering author Colin Wilson's intellectual pedigree.

Wilson is best-remembered for writing such challenging and insightful existentialist non-fiction as "The Outsider" and for a series of provocative non-fiction histories of true crime and the occult/5(11).

For over years, mind parasites have been lurking in the deepest layers of human consciousness, feeding on human life force and steadily gaining a foothold on the planet.

This is William S. Burroughs’ review (Maynard & Miles C) of a book by Colin Wilson called The Mind Parasites. It was published in the J issue of Rat, a New York underground newspaper. The copyediting was very sloppy — the paper even mispelled Burroughs’ last name as “Borroughs” — so RealityStudio took the liberty of correcting several obvious solecisms.

Once our mind is “programmed”—massaged into shape—by the mind parasites, we become more like automatons and zombies than creatively alive human beings.

Speaking of people who have fallen under the thrall of these sinister forces, Austin comments that they “were moving mechanically – mere chess men in the hands of the mind parasites.”.

The nature of the mind parasites is hinted at early on, and introduces some subtlety during a re-read. A character may find themselves saying something, or thinking something, that they cannot account for.

This is the mind parasite attempting to. The Mind Parasites is a disturbingly creepy story of monsters that live within the depths of human consciousness, feeding off our energy and keeping us depressed, dumbed-down, anxious and living below our potential.

Sounds like a common, everyday disease. One of the science fiction books that has stuck with me most over the years is Colin Wilson’s The Mind Parasites. Working like a mental cancer, mind parasites infect people they find threatening—generally, brilliant and inquisitive scientists—and consume them with darkness and dread from the inside, causing a rash of suicides across the world.

The Mind Parasites is a very fun book to read and philosophically challenging to boot. I recommend the book to all serious readers.
