I am fully aware that there is a drug problem. There is a terrible drug problem. But that's another problem. It is not a problem caused by people seeking an expanded or higher consciousness, it is caused by people who repress, how the consequences of living in this kind of civilization make them feel.
When Terence McKenna first encountered magic mushrooms, the trajectory of his life changed drastically. He realizes that he has come up with something amazing and went and delved into psilocybin and described his experiences.

A STRANGE AND RECURRING EXPERIENCE, FOR WHICH THE PSYCHEDELIC COMPONENT CURRENTLY BEING STUDIED IS RESPONSIBLE, THE "DMT". THE ENCOUNTER WITH THE BIZARRE AND THE INTROVERTED VOICE THAT TERRENCE MCKENNA TALKS ABOUT, IT APPEARS REGULARLY IN DIFFERENT PEOPLE, FROM ANCIENT TIMES TO TODAY.

Endogenous components are essential substances for the functioning of all systems in the human body. The human body produces these components as part of metabolic activity, the exact same components can be found in the plant world. Much of these materials have been outlawed, while they are part of the human experience, which legally makes us all illegal. Because we have tryptamines in the brain. And the consequences – the distortion of the values of society and natural selection.
10 Unusual Directions of Thinking and Thought-Provoking Insights About Life and the Subconscious Mind
About mental pitfalls, how important it is to take seriously understanding yourself – and not someone else's. How far can one understand, what is the depth of the ability to explain every situation in life? We will talk about a creature that deals with the physical through abstraction and analysis. And the soul that senses the approaching end of the sun and builds a strategy for itself. Also, who is the "other" hiding in the Earth's biological system?
What is so great or significant about nature that it is supposed to be the center of the mandala?
What's our next stop? Where are we headed and are we willing to understand and digest our role in the reality we are experiencing, as humanity? Terence McKenna talks about how, in his opinion, humanity
Because someone recently asked me, "Is there permission to hope for the best?" More specifically, do intelligent people have permission for hope?! – I mean, it's easy to hope if you're stupid! – But is there a basis of
Terence McKenna; The Mysteries of Language – The Focus of Processing and Creating Reality in the Human Brain
We can't progress faster than our language development (spiritually, technologically, socially, etc.), and that's certainly part of what psychedelics encourage: they stimulate language development. Substance is simply a concept. The world is made of language—the earth is the place where language has literally become an animal. language infested with interest; It replicates, defines and builds itself. And it's within us. –Terence
Terence McKenna is responsible for such legendary phrases as "Nature loves courage" and "Dreaming the impossible dream", he lit a fire in our hearts. And although He thought our world was in crisis, He helped us find our light, love, and deep appreciation for this incredible gift of existence.
What we have here: a game; A moment of dialogue. Then we will each return to his own private world. But we are part of a universal adventure. We are not just a passing process, which is also irrelevant
So why is culture supposed to imprison us, and somehow put a barrier between us and our true humanity? Well, culture and ideology are not your friends. This is a difficult thing to come to terms with, because some kind of alienation or alienation is at the end of this thought process.
I used to prepare these conversations, anticipating a vast ocean of eager faces waiting to rise and smile; "An ocean of faces," in fact, more like small pools. And I understood, these were really conversations around only one topic, which is: What is really going on in the world? What's going on? What does it mean to be embodied in a human body at the end of the twenty-first century in such a casual culture, trying to understand the
Where does humanity stand now? When the old structures of our transient paradigm crumble, under their unbearable weight (from lack of sustainability). Materialism, embedded in Terence McKenna's narrative, describes
Here is a collection of the best philosophical quotes from Terrence McKenna's psychedelic psychedelic psychedelics for your inspiration, on shamanism, psychedelic plants and mushrooms, human rights, the environment and more
Cultures are boundaries – setting rules – that's what they do! They teach you: "We do it this way. Don't go there – neither in your mind nor in your heart. Follow instructions. Obey instructions\". What psychedelics do is disperse the three-dimensional threat, detect psychology and cultural systems. Cultures that have generally severed the cultural illusion and explored the horrifying reality beyond, have not marched toward religions of absolutism or scientific absolutism, or anything else.
Every time a culture gets into trouble, it brings itself back to the past and seeks the sane last moment it knew
The dominant culture has led mankind into a blind alley. And as the inevitable mess approaches, people look for metaphors and answers. Every time a culture gets into trouble, it brings itself back to the past and searches for the sane last moment it knew. And the last sane moment we knew was about 15,000 years ago.
The whole point is that culture and language can become traps. At the same time, they may form the basis of total freedom. If you understand what it's all about here. And the whole point is – you! You are the "center of things." You are really not considered "marginal" in any way. But the message that culture sends us is that we are marginal. It doesn't matter even if there are
If you want a "teacher", try a waterfall! Or a mushroom, or a mountain wasteland, or a lightning-stricken beach
For too long, we have been enslaved to hierarchically transmitted ideologies based on extreme alienation and alienation. That's what science relies on now – alienation and distance. What we need to do is strengthen our personal experience. That's where psychedelic plants come in. Because "citizens" don't use drugs because it's not "legal." Dolls on a string don't use either, neither do robots. None of the mechanical images that know how to "behave accordingly" of humanity use drugs. To "riot" is a great sin.
The world and its double—it's just a shiny way to remind people, whose eyes fall on the text, "The world has a double." The world is not entirely, what it seems. Culture – and when I say culture, I mean any culture, anywhere, anytime – gives you the message that everything is boring, everything is normal.
We pass through a very narrow path of cultural conventions. So the important thing is to try to locate the blind spot in culture – where culture doesn't look, because it doesn't dare – because if it were to look there, its previous values would dissolve.
