Terence McKenna Quote: “At the interface of the say-able and the unsay-able is the novel, the new, the never before seen, said or done. And that’s what I think it’s important to try and bring out, ideas. Because I think we are the animals that bring back ideas.”

Terence McKenna Quote: “History is a series of approximations of the final singularity.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “Nowhere is it writ that anthropoid apes should understand reality.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “We now know enough to fantasize realistically about what the alien would be like, and I think that this then sets up polarities in the collective psyche that previously we have only seen at the level of the individual.”

Terence McKenna Quote: “What I’ve observed, and I think it’s fair to give credit to the psychedelic experience for this, what I’ve observed is that nature builds on previously established levels of complexity.”
Terence McKenna Quote: “There is a morphological enfoldment occurring on this planet. It is bringing forth some entirely new order of being. We are a privileged part of this.”
