The Fairy Faith in Celtic Countries by W.Y.Evan Wentz

PROGRAM NOTES:

[NOTE: All quotations are by Terence McKenna.]

“In hyperspace nothing is hidden.”

“Culture is a narrowing.”

“We’re about to have the chance to create a global culture, to essentially clean our basement and decide what we’re going to save and what we’re going to keep.”

“It’s the monotheistic religions that have to take a knock for the present situation.”

“The thing that I go back to over and over again, and that makes psychedelics different, and that makes what I’m doing different, is you are not asked to believe anything.”

    It is worth noting, I think, that the solar neutrino problem was solved quite a while ago with the discovery of neutrino oscillation.

    Leaving aside the stuff that didn’t survive the test of time, it seems
    (to me at least) that the philosophical core of his thinking is that
    “everything is made out of language”. This is consistent with present
    thinking that what is evolving is not the biota of the planet but
    information (language) itself.

    Niles. Can information be separated from embodiment: either biotic, electronic, mechanical, chemical?

    I somewhat prefer this earlier incarnation of the mind of TM before the ” end of history” theme began to take center stage.

    It is a little troubling to me that T allows for the shamanic interpretation of ancestor spirits, but never seems to mention the research of Stanislav Grof that touches on this theme and past lives.
