thanks jalien :thumbup:

... You get a galaxy sized object inside of you that you can access. And there there are the mountains, the rivers, the jungles, the dynastic families, the ruins, the planets, the works of art, the poetry, the sciences, the magics of millions upon millions upon millions of worlds. And this is apparently who we each are. We are a little bit of eternity sticking into three dimensional space and for some reason occupying time in a monkey body.

When you turn your eyes inward you discover the birthright, the existential facts out of which this particular existence emerged. Because, you know, it means that mystery didn't die with the fall of Arthur, or the fall of Atlantis, or the fall of anything. Mystery is alive in the moment, in the here and now. It just simply lies on the other side of a barrier of courage. And it isn't even that high a barrier. It just is a barrier high enough to keep out the insincere and misdirected. But for those who will claim it, in the midst of the chaos of the late twentieth century, they become the archaic pioneers; they become the first people to carry the aurora boric serpent around to it's own tail and to make a closure. To the degree that any one of us has this connection back to the archaic in our life, it makes where we have been make a lot more sense, and it makes where we are going seem a lot more inviting.

I like this pearl: :thumbup:

"We have the capacity--industrial, scientific, and financial--to change the world. The question is, do we have the capacity to change ourselves, to change our minds? I believe that the answer to this must be yes but not without help from nature. If mere preaching of virtue could provide the answer, then we would have arrived at the threshold of angelic existence some time ago. If mere legislation of virtue were an answer, we would have learned that a long time ago.
Help from nature means recognizing that the satisfaction of the religious impulse comes not from ritual, and still less from dogma, but rather, from a fundamental kind of experience--the experience of symbiosis with hallucinogenic plants and, through them, symbiosis with the whole of planetary life."    --Terence Mckenna

Point 3 is about the same as 1 & 2. There has been no demonstrated societal or individual increase in virtue from such symbiosis.

The proof is in the pudding.
