Terence McKenna Quote: “The monkey body has carried us to this moment of release, but we are coming more and more to exist in a world made by the human imagination.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “The creative act is a letting down of the net of human imagination into the ocean of chaos on which we are suspended, and the attempt to bring out of it ideas.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “Reality itself is not static. This is one of the things that the psychedelic is trying to put across, that the reality we’re embedded in is itself some kind of an organism and is evolving toward a conclusion.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “The world is not made of anti-mu mesons, quarks, and photons, and electromagnetic fields. Reality is made of words.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “What is unusual about Earth is that language, literally, has become alive. It has infested matter. It is replicating and defining and building itself. And it is in us.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “In the silence, in the darkness, swept away by these alien alkaloids and the plant-mind behind them, you find out a truth that can barely be told. And most of it can’t be told.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “Reality is, you know, the tip of an iceberg of irrationality that we’ve managed to drag ourselves up onto for a few panting moments before we slip back into the sea of the unreal.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “Alchemy is really the secret tradition of the redemption of spirit from matter.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “We love to congratulate ourselves on the forward-leaning liberal society that we live in, and the truth is it’s a bunch of rattle snake-handling fundamentalists that are much closer to Stalin than they are to FDR or anybody else like that.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “It is not easy to measure the ocean, but we can be measured by it, confront it, and be in it.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “Even as the nineteenth century had to come to grips with the notion of human descent from apes, we must now come to terms with the fact that those apes were stoned apes.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “I believe that great weirdness stalks the universe. That’s not the issue with me, but it is not tacky. It is not tacky.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “I connect the psychedelic dimension to the dimension of inspiration and dream.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “A great turning point is in the offing. The world is changing. It’s changed before, but not for a long time in our lives, not since before our lives. But now it’s changing, and there are many many possibilities.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “Shamanism, on the other hand, is this world wide, since Paleolithic-times, tradition which says that you must make your own experience the center piece of any model of the world that you build.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “You may miss the end of the world, but you definitely are going to have a front row seat for the end of your world.”

Terence McKenna Quote: “Alcoholism isn’t a disease. It’s a failure of self-image.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “We are living in a state of constant scientific revolution. There is not a single area that you can name that is now seen as it was seen a hundred years ago. Nothing is left of the world view of one hundred years ago.”

Terence McKenna Quote: “The psychedelic experience is not a journey into the human unconscious, or into the ghost bards of our human civilization. It’s a journey into the presence of the Gaian mind.”
