And I'd like to thank YOU for bumping a 6 year old thread... a Shroomery no-no.

Think any of the original posters will respond?

I'll put my money down on Anonymous.

Bumping old threads is actually encouraged in some forums, would you rather they had opened the umpteenth McKenna thread?

This thread is realy old though, I think it's the Related Threads feature, some old threads deserve to get bumped.

Anyway, Terence McKenna was neither a profit nor a crank.

He was very right about some things and very wrong about others, like anyone else.
His oratory passion and eloquence was extremely rare.

History will remember him as one of the great explorers of our time.

it's funny how many people look down on Mckenna like he's just some nut.  i'd like to see them create something like this.  gotta love him for going as far as he did.  his life was an experiment, he refused have some authority create his reality for him. "are you a dreamer?"

I just wish he hadn't come up with his Time Wave theory.

Why?

'Cause when he died, the nutters took his theory as fact. Every time I see a 2012 thread, I get a little more upset at Terry.

That said, I love listening to TM talk, he did have a unique perspective, and several of his theories are quite interesting.

If anything, McKenna is food for the imagination.

Once a label is on something
It becomes an it
Like it's no longer alive

It's like a loss of vision
Or some dark impression
Or a black spot on your eye

Why get upset at all?  People who blindly believe his theory would have blindly clung to other beliefs if his wasn't around.  Where's the harm in a few silly threads?

The repeated discussions about 2012 get old fast. Especially since before his death, McKenna himself admitted his theory had been disproved.

But try explaining that to the nutters...

Also, if the Mayans could predict the end of time... how come they couldn't predict their own demise?

They don't get old fast for those who enjoy participating in them.....Would you just rather everyone only discuss issues that you find worthwhile?

And how do you know the Mayans did not predict their own demise?  Maybe they didn't care! :tongue:

He is a genius that might not have ALL of the facts but through the extent of his personal experience and his extreme thoughts I believe that there is at least a large chunk of truth that he brought and still brings to the world.

Plus he brought along the Penis Envy strain haha

I LOVE Terence McKenna... but his theories were wacky.

I'm just impressed by how far outside the box he was able to think.
