In today's podcast, we get to hear one of Terence McKenna's more fanciful descriptions of what he means when he speaks of hallucinations and even considers the possibility of there being parallel worlds. Here are a few quotes from this talk that will give you a sense of the wide ranging ideas Terence McKenna discusses here: "I prefer to believe that [mind is] coming from the outside. That mind is a field into which we dip the dipstick of observation, but it's not being generated in the neurons of the brain." and "We're living in a fool's paradise, trapped inside the assumptions of linear materialism and rationalism." and "I think that the greatest disservice that science has done to humankind is the marginalizing of our own importance."
