UNDERCURRENTS 
, the magazine of radical science and alternative technology [ISSN0306 2392], was published from London, England, from 1973 to 1984 [No. 60]. This text version has been created in 2006·8 by me, Chris [Hutton·]Squire [a member of thenow·dissolved Undercurrents Collective], by OCRing scanned images of a print copy; thetext has been spell·checked but it has NOT been checked against the original.
Health & Safety Warning:

CAVEAT LECTOR! 
The many stories that
Undercurrents
told will interest students of a period that is both toodistant and too recent to be adequately documented on the Web. The moral, philosophical,social, economic and political opinions herein remain, in my opinion, pertinent to themuch more severe problems we now face.Readers who wish correspond on any matters arising are invited to contact me via:
