    528-TMcKenna: "History Ends In Green" – Part 5

    Today's podcast features the final tape in the September 1990 Terence McKenna workshop titled “History Ends In Green”. A few of my favorite quotes from this talk include: “The payoff [of psychedelic experiences] is being able to design our way toward a more humane culture.” AND “And I think that's how we have to act. We have to each choose a small area and then act in that limited area with all the existential commitments we can muster. But not with anxiety.” AND “Politics without responsibility IS fascism.”

    527-TMcKenna: "History Ends In Green" – Part 4

    In today's podcast, part 4 of a series, Terence McKenna goes into more depth about the state of one's mind when under the influence of smoked NN-DMT and how even then one's core observer remains intact. In another segment he riffs on the possibility that the elves and other visions he encountered on psychedelic journeys might actually be projections from his own psyche. Some interesting quotes from this talk include: “It's really true that the world at any moment could come completely and utterly apart. Have you seen that happen?” . . . “The whole impetus for my career is to convince myself that somebody else has seen the same thing, and that they can't believe it either.” . . . “The one thing they tell you it isn't, it is! It is! It is made of magic, anything can happen.” . . . “There's nothing holding any of us back from becoming unrecognizable, not only to our friends and loved ones, but to ourselves.”

    526-TMcKenna: "History Ends In Green" – Part 3

    In today's talk from a September 1990 workshop, Terence McKenna explains that when speaking about the DMT state he says that what he calls self-dribbling basketballs “are like crystalline, jeweled, semi-see-through, opaque, movemented things, which look like sculptures, but you can tell while you're looking at them they're actually sentences. And the sentences are saying themselves in some weird way.” That should give you something to think about the next time you come out of a DMT reverie. He also goes on a little riff about why drugs have specific “identities” in the way they present themselves, as well as giving some advice about how best to choose your drugs.

    525-TMcKenna: "History Ends In Green" – Part 2

    Today we pick up with the second installment of a September 1990 Terence McKenna workshop. In one of his recurring themes, when he was describing the DMT feature that he calls 'language elves', he goes on to say that, “what they may be is nothing more than self-reflective, compound, complex sentences. It's hard to tell what they are, because we're not used to having our sentences stand and embrace us.” My favorite quotes include, “There really is no ideology associated with psychedelics. If you look at the people who've been involved with it they've said completely different and contradictory things.” AND something that it may be wise to consider these days, “Everything not within your reach is basically unconfirmed rumor.”
