[NOTE: All quotations are by Terence McKenna.]

“Nothing is unannounced.”

“[A psychedelic truth:] Nothing lasts.”

“The lie of Western psychology is that something is stable. . . . And because of this lie we are in a state of perpetual anxiety because the truth of our experience is nothing lasts.”

“The central truth of being is the felt presence of immediate reality. That’s all you will ever have.”

“I think this ability to accept the inevitable passing and coming to be of phenomenon is what psychedelic wisdom is really about.”

“Community is the enemy of authoritarian organization.”

“They don’t hand out rights around here. The only people who have any rights are people who demand them.”

“Don’t people understand that the essence of sophistication is tolerance?”

“I think Americans are paranoid of nature.”

“This is very important work. Whether we succeed or fail, it would be tragic to not make the effort, because I think we really align ourselves with the Gaian intent when we bring these things to the community and share them.”
