    Podcast 573 - "Countdown Into Complexity" - Part 1

    Today's podcast features the first of a series of unedited participant tapes from a March 1996 Terence McKenna workshop at Esalen. As is usual, while the topic was ostensibly about the increase of complexity, he also touched on shamanism, time, being attracted to weirdness. One of my favorite quotes from this program is: "Radical human freedom is what you were born for, and culture is a kind of placenta, which if you develop normally by around age twenty you have no need of it, and in fact you've recognized the toxic nature of it and are trying to put it behind you and get away from it." AND "Psychedelics demand of us courage. Every single person who says they've done psychedelics several dozen times is a courageous person. You're standing in the presence of fearlessness, because otherwise people turn away from it."

    Podcast 571 - "Terence #2"

    Today we hear one more attempt by Terence McKenna to describe what takes place during a DMT trip. This time he says that it is a composite of about 40 such trips. He also touches on capitalism and virtual reality. A couple of my favorite quotes from this talk are: "Capitalism is as anti-human a philosophy as you can possibly conceive, because at this very moment we should be consuming less, manufacturing less, selling less, transporting less. And what's the battle cry? Free trade everywhere!" AND "The way a dream melts away is the way a DMT trip melts away, at the same speed."
