About Terence McKenna
    #2313736 - 02/08/04 05:37 AM (20 years, 4 months ago)

Hi there
Yesterday i read for the first time something about the theories of Terence Mckenna of the human mind, mushrooms, etc. and i found them very provocative. I want to know more about him, so i wonder what to do next:
-can anyone recommend me good texts by him ,preferably online versions, and is it worth it to listen to his audiotexts, a lot of them are available online, should i listen to them sober, or while tripping??
-how good does his idea of a trip work - alone in darkness and no sensory stimulation - i tried this once but i did not get a breaktrhough expereince, maybe one should eat more mushrooms to get where Mckenna wants us to get(contact with entities, etc)
-Mckenna holds DMT in highest regard as an eye-opener, etc., i have not tried it and i don't know if i ever will, but i have tried salvia and i guess similar results may be obtained(there was once a thread here about similarities between DMT and Salvia), i wonder if mckenna has said something about salvia
-and last but not least, is it worth it to go deeper into his theories, is it beneficial, or one might get crazy  :mushroom2: from thinking about mushroom consciouesness, the meaning of life, preparation for death, etc.
Thanks for your answers

i prefer mckenna's books, they are eay to find.
a good cd is a show he did with space time continuum called 'alien dreamtime'. i think i only ever listened straight, jodorowski's 'holy mountain' was always my preference.

'contact with 'entities' = actually listen to the voices in your head,
depending upon your point of view. either way an extreme view in either direction will be ultimately self-destructive .
tripping alone and in the dark allowed me to experience a wide variety of emotions. if we were talking about motorbikes, i'd say start with a 250cc, when you are ok, get a 600cc, then 900, then something sweet like a hayabusa, after that take up drag racing.

mckenna's theories are good theories.

i just heard the voice of Terence Mckenna in a recording and i made an interesting observstion: i have heard it many times before, but did not know it was it. Many artists, Shpongle and Entheogenic, for example, have used his voice as a sample in their music, it is a characteristic voice that is easily remembered...
