Terence McKenna - The food of Gods

As i promised i put the video of great philosopher Terence McKenna. He was one of the
heir of psychedelic philosophy (you know beatnics Kesey, Burroughs, Kerouac). This is few quotes, but it is most interesting theory i have ever heard. Enjoy. Rest in Peace Terence:

"If we comes from monkeys, just say it, they were on drugs!"

"You are an explorer, and you represent our species, and the greatest good you can do is to bring back a new idea, because our world is endangered by the absence of good ideas. Our world is in crisis because of the absence of consciousness."

"A hallucination is a species of reality, as capable of teaching you as a videotape about Kilimanjaro or anything else that falls through your life."

  6. as interesting as it is, seems like he tries to compensate for his hesitancy with own life choices by encouraging others to do so.

  8. When I first read the title I misread it as "Food for the Gods" and I thought: another In Flames fan? Unfortunately not.
    Philosophers are weird. Wise but weird :D

  12. I love this guy's frame of mind. Too many people in the world are set to auto-pilot. Philosophy isn't a waste of time because it can be the birth of an entire new way of living.

  13. I really like that quote you posted. Very inspiring, I bet most people don't even think of life like that, you've even changed my mindset :)
