Guest speaker: Terence McKenna

Dak Ring (circa 1999)

PROGRAM NOTES:

[NOTE: All quotations are by Terence McKenna.]

“History is anomalous, and there is no way to get used to it.”

“The miracle of our predicament is not how long everything has been in place but how brief it all has been.”

“Each stage of cosmic development proceeded more quickly than the stage which preceded it.”

“A singularity is a place where the rules are broken. A miracle is a singularity.”

“That’s part of the nature of a fractal cosmos, nothing is utterly unannounced.”

“History is a series of approximations of the final singularity.”

“I believe in extraterrestrials, but I believe that real extraterrestrials are so peculiar that the job is to recognize them.”

“So when you look at the eschaton what you see, strangely enough, is your own face.”

“The things I encounter that I call elves or gnomes, it’s just a gloss. I mean, they’re small, and they have the archetype. They’re more like leprechauns, and this maybe raises a racial issue.”

Guest speaker: Daniel Pinchbeck

PROGRAM NOTES:

“If you step back from it and really think about what the mass media does on a global scale, the most significant thing it does is coordinate behaviour.” -Daniel Pinchbeck

Today we feature Daniel Pinchbeck’s 2013 Palenque Norte Lecture. This talk/conversation took place late one night during the Burning Man Festival in the big tent at Camp Soft Landing, which hosted the annual lecture series. Prompted by questions from the audience, Daniel touches on a wide range of topics that included Rudolph Stiener, reincarnation, ecology, shamanism, mysticism, planetary crisis, morphagenic fields, and he even touches on Bitcoin.

Guest speakers: Rupert Sheldrake, Ralph Abraham, and Terence McKenna

PROGRAM NOTES:

(Minutes : Seconds into program)
04:38 Rupert Sheldrake: quot;The primary metaphor is the magnetic field, that’s what gives you the sense of a field. But if you look at the type of physics that would be appropriate for describing these fields it would not be magnitism, it’s quantum field theory.

07:23 Ralph Abraham:“I’m extremely suspicious of the application of quantum mechanical concepts in the arena of psychology, consciousness, sociology, and so on. To me that’s much fuzzier than the face on Mars.”

12:28 Terence McKenna: “Part of the problem is that physical models break down when prosecuted to quantum mechanical levels.”

21:15 Ralph begins his explanation of the physics of the nimbus, otherwise known as a halo.

30:47 Terence: “The more successful psychoanalytic theories, it seems to me, are the least mathmatically driven, and depend really on this mysterious business that we call the gifted therapist.”

PROGRAM NOTES:

(Minutes : Seconds into program)
05:25 Rupert Sheldrake: “And so in human family groups we’d expect the same kind of morphic fields [as in other animal family groups]. . . . It would mean that family fields, with their morphic fields, would have a kind of memory from the families that contributed to them. The father’s and mother’s families of origin would come together in a family.”

12:12 Rupert: “Whatever the merits or demerits of [Bert] Hellinger’s system, which I think is very interesting and apparently very effective, the idea of making models of the family field seems to me something that one could address in a more general sense.”

20:29 Terence McKenna: “The family thing works because people really are complex chemical systems with genetic affinity.”

22:16 Rupert: “There are amazing cases where young people commit suicide in a way that mimics the unacknowledged death of an ancestor, like suicide by drowning when an ancestor one or two generations before have committed suicide by drowning, but they’ve never been told about it because it was never acknowledged. And you get these extraordinary patterns that repeat.”

26:58 Rupert: “We don’t have adequate models for these family systems, nor the influence of ancestors within them, which my interest in morphic resonance makes me very keen on.”

49:27 Rupert (describing an indigenous belief): “But you have to be on good terms with the ancestors. And what being on good terms, above all, means acknowledging them. . . . that you name and acknowledge the key ancestors, you acknowledge all the dead in your lineage. And if you miss anyone out they’re going to be angry, and if they’re angry that means trouble.”

Guest speakers: Terence McKenna, Ralph Abraham, and Rupert Sheldrake

PROGRAM NOTES:

(Minutes : Seconds into program)
03:08 Terence McKenna: “Another way of thinking of it (the Knot of Eternity) is it’s the nexus of connectivity. It’s a place where everything is cotangent, as the mathematicians say. Everything is connected, and I think that’s the place we are growing toward.”

07:30 Ralph Abraham: “If a present moment is between a past that’s familiar and a future which is completely different, then that’s a very special moment.”

10:18 Rupert Sheldrake: Begins a brief explanation of his theory of morphic resonance.

16:08 Terence: “The great successful conspiracies, the Catholic church, capitalism, the Communist Party of China, Zionism, these things don’t call themselves conspiracies. They call themselves historical social movements.”

17:07 Terence: “The task of discerning shit from Shinola looms very large at the end of history.”

20:52 Ralph: Tells about the experience he and Rupert had in a crop circle.

23:53 Rupert: Tells about being arrested while inspecting a crop circle.

27:33 Terence“I think we’re going to have to come to terms with as the world moves toward this concrescence of novelty is that it gives off spurious reflections of itself.”

28:54 Terence: “The truth will be beautiful, and it will be simple. And it will be persuasive to those who doubt it. So don’t get into some closed loop of viviology. Make the truth seduce you. Don’t be thereby seduced by error.”

31:10 Rupert: Talks about ley lines.

33:49 Terence gives an update on his current thinking about the Timewave (Novelty Theory).

34:17 Terence: “We have created social institutions such as consumer capitalism that are so unfriendly to our innate humaness that they are actually redesigning us, these social systems, to be more brutal, less caring, more acquisitive, more fetishistic, than we naturally would be. And, again, the antidote to this is an awareness of your immediate environment and the tricks that are being run on you and the ways in which we are being manipulated. Man is not bad. Humanity is not flawed. What is flawed are ideologies and social systems that distort humaness for purposes usually of commerce or conquest. . . . Culture is an intelligence test.”

42:47 Rupert: “I think that the suppression of ritual forms of violence can lead to an outbreak of sacrificial killings by crazed maniacs.”

43:20 Terence: “Well, it’s not a good idea to fear anything. Technology is prostheses. Technology is tools. We’ve always been defined by our tools. There is nothing about us that would be human if it weren’t for our tools. Language is a tool. The cutting edge is a tool. Social organization is a tool. . . . Shamanism is simply a technology.”

PROGRAM NOTES:

(Minutes : Seconds into program)
02:31
Terence McKenna:
“[The apocalypse] seems to be the unique, unifying thread throughout the
Western religions Most insistently of all religious systems on Earth, it is
the Western systems that have insisted on appointing an end to their world.”

05:07 Terence:
“At the folkloric level, the attractor of the end of the world is very strong.”

07:47 Terence:
“And these religions, which have anticipated this thing in this rather crude end of the world scenario are somehow on to something, something that is, I think, a message that is coming from the biological level, if you will, about the inherent instability of the world.”

12:14 Terence:
“If in fact the concrescence is upon us then really all we can do is chat
about it as it comes down around our ears over the next 25 years.”

14:37 Terence:
“I think we’re standing on the lip of a hyperdimensional volcano of some
sort, toward which all history is being poured at a great rate.”

29:34 Terence:
“So then I thought, my god, we’re not inventing time travel here, what we’re
inventing is a god whistle.”

36:01 Terence:
“You see, the presence of minds is the signifier of nearby singularity.”

37:22 Ralph Abraham:
“The only thing is, that from the morphogenic field point of view there
are quite a number of people believing Saint John the Divine, now that I have
to take seriously.”
. . . Terence: “He felt a quaking in the force,
that’s all, but it’s up to cooler heads to figure out what this quaking is.”

38:10 Ralph:
“The present extinction is the eighth largest [as determined in 1989] catastrophes of the planet in its lifetime. And that’s happening now. So we are in something that big, and to be the biggest one it would be the apocalypse.”

38:10 Terence:
“So that’s why you don’t need John the Divine to tell you there’s an apocalypse
underway.” 

39:49 Ralph:
“It does seem to me that the ecological catastrophe is the appropriate interpretation
of the apocalyptic vision at the present time.”

Guest speakers: Terence McKenna, Ralph Abraham, and Rupert Sheldrake

PROGRAM NOTES:

(Minutes : Seconds into program)
02:14 Ralph Abraham: Takes issue with McKenna’s and Sheldrake’s interpretation of chaotic attractors. . . . To a mathematician, the word ‘attractor’ does not necessarily imply attraction.

07:23 Rupert Sheldrake:
“But Newtonian physics and the triumph of the mechanistic system, in my opinion, only works because what it was seeking to deny was introduced into it by a kind of subterfuge and pretended that this was a mechanical principle whereas it was something else.”

09:37 Ralph:
“The idea of two dimensional time could aid us here.” . . . The problem with the teleological approach is that the cause is in the future.

10:54 Ralph:
“The more interesting idea is to make a model for evolution itself.” . . . “The determinant of evolution [in the case being discussed] is the free will in the moment as the collective action of the citizens in the present.”

13:24 Rupert:
… discuses the concept of morphic attractors as a way of dealing with the fact that somehow, in the present, the person, etc. is subject to the influence of a potential future state that hasn’t yet come into being. “But that future state is what directs and guides and attracts the development of the present system.”

14:26 Terence McKenna:
“Well, this is all very interesting.” . . . “The modeling task, ne plus ultra, is history. This is where you’re no longer playing a little game to demonstrate something to a group of students or colleagues.” . . . “I think the whole reason history has bogged down in the 20th century is because of the absence of belief in an attractor.”

20:31 Terence:
“Our cultural phase transition that we are going through, vis a vie machines, may signify that we are not, as I have always thought, very close to the maximized state of novelty, but that we’re out there somewhere in the middle of that wave . . . “

22:41 Rupert:
“I think there’s a very big difference between spoken language and written language.”

25:16 Ralph:
“Well, I imagine, just to be contrary, that mathematics preceded not only writing, but mathematics probably preceded language as well.” . . . “We could reach a point where we had models that were decent in some sense to aid us in the understanding of complex social relationships.”

33:06 Terence:
“[Ralph] do you still cling to the mathematical proof of the impossibility of monogamy?”

34:16 Terence: “And in a way that’s what I see the three of us and others mentionable as doing. We’re trying to create a self-fulfilling prophecy where it’s such a good idea that it will act as an attractor, and the world will move toward that form.”

Guest speakers: Terence McKenna, Ralph Abraham, and Rupert Sheldrake

PROGRAM NOTES:

(Minutes : Seconds into program)
01:23 Ralph Abraham: A short primer on chaos theory. . . . The emergence of form from a field of chaos.

08:57 Rupert Sheldrake:
The problem I have with chaos theory . . . ” The issue of indeterminacy in the real world. . . . The illusion of total predictability. . . . Indeterminacy may exist not just at the quantum level but at all levels of natural organization. . . . How form arises from chaos. . . . In some sense, energy may be seen as an agent of change.

21:24 Rupert:
The question of how do new fields, new forms, come into being in the first place? Where do they come from? . . . The nature of the mathematical realm, the formative realm. Is there a kind of mathematical realm before the universe, somehow beyond space and time. [lozo: he goes on a kind of Olaf Stapelton riff] . . .

26:04 Rupert:
“The view that I want to consider is that the world soul, or the world imagination, makes up these forms as it goes along, that there isn’t, out there, a kind of mathematical mind already fixed or already full.”

28:40 Ralph:
“I think that with mathematics we can make a model for anything.” . . . “Mathematics could be regarded simply an extension of language. . . . Words, I think, are frequently inadequate.”

34:18 Ralph:
“But the truth is this theory can be used to model everything. So it never settles any questions as to the origin of things or the true nature of ordinary reality.”

37:40 Rupert:
“Are the fields of reality more real than the models we use to model them with. Or is there a kind of mathematics yet more fundamental the fields?”

38:57 Ralph:
What mathematics means to me . . . a description of the mathematical landscape. . . . “Mathematics is the supreme tool for the extension of our language for dealing with complex systems.”
