THE MOST POWERFUL DRUG – An Interesting Way of Looking at Things

I was watching with great pleasure some short film with Terence McKenna and listening to him I got out some very interesting ideas:

  • UNEXAMINED BEHAVIOUR

is what is alarming about drug addiction,

that people behave like they are obsessed. On that scale,

  • THE MOST POWERFUL DRUG

of the twentieth century is television, and propaganda.

The most intelligent of us, the ones holding themselves most aloof are      probably junkies when it comes to the media.

The media just makes you stupider, and stupider, and stupider.

You become:

* less able to formulate a creative response

* less able to tell what is real and what is not.

* less able to empower yourself.

  • WE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MAKE SENSE.

  • WE MUST CHANGE OUR MINDS.
  • BUSINESS AS USUAL will lead to exacerbated conflict over resources and turf, and  eventually thermonuclear catastrophe.

If the

  • EVOLUTION OF CONSCIOUSNESS is not the way to solve the world’s problems, then I do not know  what it is.

 

  • WE NEED TO INTERVENE IN OUR OWN PSHYCHI.

We cannot afford the luxury of an unconscious mind …

We cannot afford the

  • UNEXAMINED OBSESSIVE BEHAVIOUR PATTERN

that leads us into a conditioned response. We are an extremely  violence prone neurotic species, and the price we pay, when the

 SYMBIOTIC RELATIONSHIP

to the rest of nature is interrupted we lose our baring. We need to

  • ATTUNE OURSELVES TO THE LARGER PURPOSE OF NATURE,

to care about the planet, much like the bees do, much like termites do,

but we are conscious creatures.

  • WE HAVE SOMEHOW ONE FOOT IN A HIGHER DIMENSION
  • THIS IS THE MISTERY OF OUR SELVES.

What I like about Terence is that he is so clear, so coherent, he speaks exactly what he intends to say. Magic! Besides, is there anything else to think of regarding our species?
