Guest speaker: Terence McKenna


[NOTE: All quotations are by Terence McKenna.]

“The real news is no one is in control, not the central bank, not the Jews, not the communist party, not the pope. Nobody’s in control.”

“I do not understand why people transfer loyalty to role models. You have to be incredibly naive about what people are to believe that a role model is in fact worthy.”

“If you want to talk to the Dali Lama close the door of your bedroom and have a dialogue with the mirror. You’re as good as the Dali Lama for crying out loud. Who could suppose otherwise?”

“Buddhism without psychedelics is armchair Buddhism. How can you possibly know anything about these modalities if you sit there, shastras to the eyebrows, and never actually push off into the ocean of mind?”

“Crop circles are the con that will not die.”
