Still the man
    #2086059 - 11/09/03 07:49 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

terrence mekenna interview, last question................

Q:"Finally, what's your most optimistic vision of the future?"

A:"I believe that psychedelics may aid us in deprogramming ourselves from some of our more lethal habits, such as war, racism, and consumerism. And I believe that the Internet will eventually provide a path of upward mobility for ambitious third- and second-world people who are trying to better themselves. After all, the Internet is a kind of vast, self-organized university--at least that is one way it can be used. And lastly, I am optimistic because I feel that young people who have grown up with drugs and cyberspace can lead us to the sort of society that can integrate these powerful technologies and allow us to leave the narrow confines of 20th-century thinking and its obsessions behind us."

I've been thinking lately that the Internet and forums like this one where intelligent, non-conforming people can get together are going to be the only hope of saving this pointless, consumer-driven society. 

It's funny, when the Web first started, I was a cynic and thought it was only good to foist more advertising on us...well, and porn, of course. :cool:  Now, I spend most of my time online researching and discussing concepts the average person I meet in real life just can't handle or comprehend.  Ironic, ain't it?

I'm just see-through faded, super jaded, and out of my mind. - R.I.P. Layne

Since he's so interested in psychedelics, the internet, and thought, do you guys think he peruses these boards from time to time?

If they have a DSL connection in the spirit world... :grin:

If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you
