Terence McKenna Quote: “We do not birth our children into the world of nature. We birth our children into the world of culture.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “The Gaian process is more than a process. It is s self-reflecting entelechy of some sort.”

Terence McKenna Quote: “What we need to change is our minds, that’s the part that’s doing us dirt and dragging us under. How can we change our minds.”
