    Salon2 - 037 - "The Family that Trips Together, Sticks Together"

    Today we return to the Salon2 track and another podcasts-in-a-podcast, this time with Alexa and Kat Lakey. Their first program here in the salon features an interview with Scott Olsen, the organizer of one of the largest exhibits of Amazonian art to be held in the U.S. The exhibit was titled ‘The Mysteries of the Amazon’ and featured the work of Pablo Amaringo and his students from the Usko-Ayar School of Visionary Painting. Following that interview, we are treated to what may be a first in psychedelic story telling when the Lakey sisters interview their parents about psychedelic experiences that they all shared.

    Podcast 564 - "Plants and Mind (Part 2-Chimpanzee or Bonobo)"

    Today's podcast feature the second installment of Terence McKenna's "Plants and Mind" course that he gave in April of 1993. It features an interesting line of questions from the participants in the class about the role of gender in the psychedelic community. Two of my favorite quotes from this talk are: "I think the modern family is, first of all a very modern invention, and basically a cauldron for the production of neurosis." AND "Ego is like a cyst which will begin to grow in you, whether you are male or female, unless you take a psychedelic. The psychedelic will dissolve this cyst. The cyst is in your personality. It's a tumor. It shouldn't be there. We do need to have egos, little egos."

    Podcast 563 - "Plants and Mind (Part 1)"

    Today's podcast features the beginning of a course that Terence McKenna taught in which he detailed his thoughts about the ways in which human consciousness came to be. A few interesting quotes from this talk include: "What seems to me to be one of the most centrally interesting questions to be asked of this world, and that is: What is human consciousness? Where did it come from? And why does it exist at all?" AND "It still is a very challenging thing to dissolve your ordinary state of consciousness, and abandon yourself to the dynamic of the larger mind that we find ourselves embedded in." AND "I think this is a frightening thing to contemplate, but the earliest cities, I will argue, were pens for human beings. That's what a city is. They're a pen for human beings."

    Podcast 562 - "What It's Like To Be Loaded"

    Today's podcast features Terence McKenna at his best. While this is another of his talks in praise of DMT, he manages to take it to yet another level. Here are a few of my favorite quotes from this talk: "A long, long time ago I took an oath to tell all secrets that came my way. Don't tell me a secret. I won't keep it. I'm against secrets. I'm against hierarchies, lineages. All assumption of special knowledge on the part of anyone in the presence of anyone else is abhorrent to me. I am a true anarchist, first and foremost." AND "My psychedelic mantra: I've done it this time!" AND "What we are about to discover is probably the least likely thing any of us expected out of our dilemma. What we're about to discover is that death has no sting. That what you penetrate on DMT is an ecology of human souls in another dimension of some sort." AND "A drug that you take and forty-eight hours later you're laying around in warm baths and refusing telephone calls is a drug you shouldn't have taken."
