4 scintillating minutes from the late, great, Terence McKenna, one of the very finest and most original minds of our times: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGSq0BCXaiw
Listen past the fun bit on trilobites to around 1 min 27 secs in where he makes a really important point about personality cults and gurus: “I know that I don’t know anything more than you know. Really… There are no experts. There is only the integrity of doing and having done.” I agree with what Terence has to say here completely.
By the way, please ignore the various attempts that have been made to smear Terence’s name by those consciously or unconsciously serving the mind-control agenda of State agencies. Terence was a free spirit, with a powerful voice, a real threat to the establishment, and the establishment uses all manner of nefarious means and disinformation to taint and destroy the reputations of free spirits with powerful voices.
I never knew Terence personally but it has been my privilege in recent years to become close friends with his brother Dennis McKenna, a lovely, good-hearted, eloquent man who continues to carry the McKenna torch. Dennis has kindly organised this speaking event for me in St Paul MN on the evening of 11 December: http://brotherhoodofthescreamingabyss.com/event/an-evening-with-graham-hancock/.
