Terence McKenna: Tryptamine Hallucinogens & Consciousness (1982)

Tryptamine Hallucinogens & Consciousness:
Presented: Esalen Institute, Big Sur CA.
December 1982

"The search for a radio signal from an extraterrestrial source is probably as culture-bound an assumption as to search the galaxy for a good Italian restaurant."

"The testimony that I want to give today is that magic is alive in hyperspace, and you don't have to believe me or follow me or do anything to validate that except form a relationship with these plant drugs."

"There is some surety that you are dealing with a creature of integrity if you deal with a plant, but the creatures 
born in the demonic artifice of laboratories have to be dealt with very, very carefully."

"The future is bound to be psychedelic because the future belongs to the mind."
