Terence Mckenna another piece of shit agent.

So he tried to go as far as trying to really understand the mushroom but he isn't even close you have to be a mazatec to know the true secret.

Have you even read any McKenna? I think he was fully aware of the limitations of his own works and his own views...although at times they may have gotten a little out of control, what doesn't in this world!!

I agree, the maztecs don't have any special powers or are in different than anyone else. Droz, you should say "in my opinion", not stating as a fact.

sorry i have to put my statement this way but, you sound like a f***ing idiot. you haven't got the slightest clue what terrence and his brother dennis were on to. so before you speak about some shit that you have no knowlege of, do some research and some soul searching. if it wasn't for people like terrence mckenna devoting his lifes work to mushrooms and other psychedelics then there may not have ever been a pf tek or even this message board. it was because of his research as well as gordon s wasson and many others that it makes all of this possible today!!!!!!!!! peace.

the mazatecs know just as many of the secrets about the mushrooms as anyone else whom the mushrooms choose to reveal those secrets to. you must be worthy and respectful in order for those secrets to be given to you. your intent and your approach must be righteous...

"you have to be a mazatec to know the true secret."

You didn't finish your statement:

"you have to be a mazatec to know the true secret..... of the mazatecs."

Terence worked well on me lol - I don't believe a lot of the stuff he said but I don't think his intention was to be right and know the secret and all that. I think his intention was to get people to fucking THINK!! THINK, DAMN YOU!!! THINK!! WAKE THE FUCK UP AND THINK!!!

And he made a few dimes in the process  :smirk:

Mckenna's importance was not what he got right (very little, from what I've read), but what he opened people's minds to.

McKenna spun a great yarn and had some very mind blowing concepts. That doesn't mean he was right but it also doesn't mean he was wrong either! He was a great entertainer and poet of the prose. I think he was a great man in his own rite. He was some what of a shaman but I wouldn't call him a full blown shaman. He blazed a trail for many others to follow into their own consciousness. I think that was his greatest achievment.

He was not a Mazatec, this is true. But that doesn't make his explorations illegitamet. Secondly, that doesn't mean the Mazatecs were any better than he! He may not have been keen on esoteric Mazatec knowledge but who's to say they were on the right path anyway? :mushroom2:

I've read the books, and i've experienced a little mckennaism, so don't call me an idiot. I beleive he was out looking for the secrets, but agents will always seem a little friendly just to find a little information.

agents, schmagents... :thumbdown:

I am very grateful to Mckenna and so many others who have had the courage to explore this universe and the lost and forbidden arts and have returned happily to tell the tale. Grateful too for giving us all permission, nay for inviting us all with enthusiasm, intelligence and respect to see the thing for ourselves. :thumbup:

Mckenna said in one of the last interviews before his death that "it was worth a life to put these [psychedelic] issues in front of people."

Quote from Dean Jefferys' "Shamans of the Amazon" DVD. :thumbup:

btw, Freud died of throat cancer...  :confused:

quiet please
