Today's podcast features a May 1990 talk by Terence McKenna in which he declares himself to be "an edge runner." What he means by that is that, while he lives mainly in the default world, it is at the edges of this world were he focuses his intentions. One of his more controversial quotes from this talk is, "If our god is omnipotent, omniscient, never wrong always right, utterly unforgiving, this is a jerk! Who needs this? We don't need this. Our image of deity is pathological. Our image of deity is the image of the cancerously untamed ego."
