Date this lecture was recorded: May 1990.

[NOTE: All quotations are by Terence McKenna.]

“The world that we are living in is not at all as the linguistic structures we have inherited would have us have it. We are actually living inside some kind of artificial construction which is potentially permeable by human understanding but to date has not been.”

“The unspeakable is the ground of language.”

“History is the story of the cancerous and unchecked growth of the ego.”

“If our god is omnipotent, omniscient, never wrong always right, utterly unforgiving, this is a jerk! Who needs this? We don’t need this. Our image of deity is pathological. Our image of deity is the image of the cancerously untamed ego.”

“Psychedelics are not an ideology. Psychedelics are an experience.”

“What the shamans say is truer than anything we can say about them.”
