Podcast 335 – “Is There Any Reason to Hope?”

Guest speaker: Terence McKenna

PROGRAM NOTES:

[NOTE: All quotations are by Terence McKenna.]

“[The wide variety of psychedelic plants] are the way in which the Earth itself is stepping in to aid in the agenda of cultural transformation. There are too many doorways in nature that lead to heaven, there are too many paths to the mystery for any institution or social policy to be able to thwart the intent of the human species to evolve.”

“The smart people who are straight are involved in simply the media management of what has turned into a slow apocalypse, spreading starvation, exacerbated class differences, toxified agriculture, so forth and so on. I don’t believe the Establishment thinks there are solutions. Their policy is basically the management of panic, which is hardly a forward moving approach to the adventure of human civilization.”

“Inside the boundaries of the old paradigm there’s no hope, there’s no way out of the box of capitalism, monogamy, consumer fetishism, egoism, money worship, no way out. No way. No way out!”

“Because this is the world that science built, with the henchmen of capitalism and Christianity.”

“This unique strategy that the advanced primates created, the strategy of using language to bind time, is what the process we call ‘civilization’ has been all about.”

“Cyberspace is the human transition into a mathematical super space where we as a collectivity become optionally a single point of view.”

“The main thing going on in the 20th century is a dissolving of boundaries, all the boundaries that historical civilization put in place.”

“Let’s not underrate cannabis, for cryin’ out loud. Cannabis should be the glue of the community.”

“The obligation on us is to communicate the truth so that it is understood. The belief will take care of itself.”

Podcast 300 – “Terence McKenna: Beyond 2012” Part 3

Guest speaker: Lorenzo

PROGRAM NOTES:

Today’s podcast picks up with the third section of the workshop that Bruce Damer and I led on January 28th. This section features my second presentation of the day in which I try to live up to the advanced billing for the workshop which read: “Lorenzo will take us from 2013 into the emerging era of cyber-enhanced humans, immersed in a meme-space stranger than we can suppose.”

In the Occupy segment of the podcast I feature an interview with and a talk by Chris Hedges, including his criticism of the Black Bloc hooligans who are doing their best to destroy the Occupy Movement.

Podcast 045 – “Rave Culture And the End Of The World…as we know it”

Guest speaker: Fraser Clark

PROGRAM NOTES:


Fraser Clark returns to the Psychedelic Salon with a brilliant talk he gave as a guest lecturer at Stanford University. In his introduction to this podcast, Lorenzo calls this one of the most important programs we have heard so far in this series.

In this talk you’re going to hear one off the most concise explanations of the evolution from beat to hippy to zippy to raver that you’re probably ever going to hear. Adopting the philosophy of the rave culture, at least the way Fraser explains it in this talk, is perhaps our species’ best hope for a sustainable, peaceful, and beautiful place to continue chugging along on our evolutionary path.
