For anyone interested, I will be scheduling an interview with Terence McKenna’s brother Dennis McKenna around the first of September!
I will be asking about a variety of topics relating to consciousness, the use of psychedelic plants, the archaic revival, his opinion on Terence’s stoned ape theory, the acceleration of technology paired with spirituality and more.. I’ll keep y’all updated! :)
Dennis McKenna now knows my website URL.

This is an early Terence McKenna lecture that was given sometime in 1984. Particularly considering the year it was delivered, there is more talk about psychedelics and the psychedelic experience than could be found elsewhere. But McKenna doesn’t confine himself to only talking about psychedelics. Other topics include his early thoughts about language, culture, and the fact that the psychedelic community may be some sort of mutant population that is just waiting for certain selective parameters to change and enable the mutants to steer our species in a new direction. He gives Insight in to what intrigues him about glossolalia and explains how he went about invoking it in a mushroom session. Also we hear a very clear explanation of how he views the possibility of immortality.
“You are an explorer, and you represent our species, and the greatest good you can do is to bring back a new idea, because our world is endangered by the absence of good ideas. Our world is in crisis because of the absence of consciousness.”
― Terence McKenna
