In the annals of psychedelic research, there have been very few figures who have made a mark through their psychedelic discoveries and ideologies, and Terence McKenna was one of them. He was a renowned lecturer, psychonaut and writer, who had dedicated decades to study ‘shamanism’ and psychic alteration. His brilliance and interest in human psychology was evident from a young age as he read Carl Jung’s book ‘Psychology and Alchemy’ at the tender age of ten. He supported the survey of different statuses of the human mind through the consumption of psychedelic substances such as ‘psychedelic mushrooms’. He traveled far and wide and studied the impact of psychotropic florae on human culture, human cognizance and evolution. He also extensively researched on and introduced the concept of ‘novelty theory’. His ideologies and his scientific appreciation of nature can be seen in works including ‘The Archaic Revival’, ‘Food of the Gods: The Search for the Original Tree of Knowledge- A Radical History of Plants’, ‘The Invisible Landscape’ and ‘Drugs’ to name a few. He was also the co-founder of ‘Botanical Dimensions’, an ethnobotanical sanctuary in Hawaii. Towards the end of his life, he became actively involved in advocating the importance of ‘technological singularity’.

  1. Terrence, pop meth and heroin and you couldve understood the nature of Man in the Holocaust and other events fueled by chemistries which you seem to separate yourself from. You instead hid yourself in psilocybin-fueled rhetoric. To many who are unfortunately familiar with drugs, you seemed intellectually detached. RIP.

  2. Terence McKenna is amazing idk how someone can know so much it is true knowledge is power for sure anything that can unlock parts of your brain must be legal why wouldn't you want all knowing power we don't know everything and we'll always learn something new

  3. "The Germans take quite a knock for the Holocaust, but the Roman Catholic church manages to push more people into death, disease and degredation every year than the Holocaust ever did. And if these Catholic bishops can show their face in public, then we are in complicity with mass murder."

    Clearly said, Terence.
    Time to look critically at our crutches, such as the church, regardless of how long their history is and how they dress up and walk and talk in a dignified way.

    If the church says that contraception is a sin, it should also clearly state that any sexual intercourse that doesn't have the creation of a human being in mind, is a sin.

    Then, it should look at how this can be enforced in third world countries. If it can't, it should just advocate contraconception. Let being religious be the choice of the individual, and stop being so bossy about it; it's a dictatorship of so many vulnerable people's minds.

  4. Anytime you must depend upon a substance for ultimate truth it is a little dangerous. Ask the Divine/Universe/God/whatever you’ve named It, to show you ultimate truth. If you are sincere, it will be. The glance you get from any “substance” will be temporary and if you don’t have the spiritual maturity it is likely that you won’t know what to do with the experience.
