Date this lecture was recorded: April 1999

[NOTE: All quotations are by Terence McKenna

“The electronic media and the psychedelics work together in a peculiar way to accentuate archaic values, values which are counter to the print constellated world.”

“The shaman is like a designated traveler into higher dimensional space. The shaman has permission to unlock the cultural cul-de-sac of his or her people and go behind the stage machinery of cultural appearances. And has collective permission to manipulate that stage machinery for purposes of healing.”

“All culture is dissolving in the face of the drug-like nature of the future.”

“The Earth is involved in a kind of alchemical sublimation of itself into a higher state of morphogenetic order. And that these machines that we build are actually the means by which the Earth itself is growing conscious.”

“Human beings are the agents of a new order of being.”

  1. This must be the best McKenna ever. He saved the best for last. I realy like the ambient sounds at the end of this wonderful lecture. Have to agree with Lorenzo, so very actual although almost 20 years ago. Miss this man. What would he have said at this moment in time?
