Hi Brian..., if I may intercede...;

"The active side of Infinity" was written when Castaneda was seriously ill with liver cancer. It includes numerous episodes triggered by the side effects of this illness[ what is commonly referred to as 'sh*t on the liver']:
A foulness of language; vicious mysogeny; ridicule of academics etc.., which are quite out of character with the earlier volumes.
This is not to say that 'inorganic' or 'shadow' beings do not exist..., but I would suggest that 'The Predator' is more likely a projection triggered by his illness. For an factual account of Cataneda's unfortunate last days see: "Sorcerer's Apprentice" by Amy Wallace.

Despite claims to the contrary by envious academics and various charlatans trying to accrue a little exposure by denial and contradiction..., Don Juan most definitely existed. There is no character in all literature that carries such authenticity.., such consistency.., impeccability.., outrageous humor..and absolute wisdom. You cannot fabricate characters like Dons Juan and Genaro.

best,
