Terence McKenna quote from "Food Of The Gods"
    #1088532 - 11/26/02 08:39 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

In reply to:

Faced with such hysterical Know-Nothingism, we would do well to recall that at one time dissection of corpses was forbidden by the Church and denounced as witchcraft. Modern anatomy was created by medical students who visited battlefields or who stole corpses from the gallows. To advance their knowledge of the human body, they risked arrest and imprisonment. Should we be any less courageous in attempting to push back the fontiers of the known and the possible?

I appreciate your attitude Learyfan. I think that was your best thread yet. I am with you all the way. In fact, my life is centered around changing this. This is why I am fight on many fronts.

Good Thread!

So how does one obtain income while using all of their resources fighting this fight?

I'd LOVE to think there was no war on us explorers, however since there IS... I should probably recognize that and not kid myself TOO MUCH.

Here's a suggestion:  Simutaneously spike the water supplys of every major city in the world with some sort of high powered hallucinogen.  Whether or not it would help the cause is questionable.  It would be entertaining in the least :grin:

The thought that hippies might spike the water supply was one of the scare tactics the media used in the 60's to create public opinion about psychedelics.

I think it would be a bad thing.

I work as a political analyst/consultant to get the right people elected.  Kills two birds with one stone. :wink:
