Message From Terrance McKenna [1946-2000]
By Terrance McKenna
Ignorance is no longer an excuse. Anthropology in the last hundred years, has laid at our doorstep the tools necessary for an archaic reconstruction of society and human values within that society. It’s inconceivable that Western industrial capitalism could run on another five hundred or a thousand years. It will not continue and it has, it will deteriorate under the pressure of resource scarcity, and what few democratic values we have obtained, and what little space for reasoned discourse has been created will be the first to be swept away. So it’s very, very important that people take back their minds, and that people analyze our dilemma in the context of the entire human story from the descent onto the grasslands, to our potential destiny as citizens of the galaxy and the universe. We are at a critical turning point and as I say the tools, the data that holds the potential for our salvation is now known, it is available, it is among us, but it is misrepresented, it is slammed, it is litigated against, so it’s up to each one of us to relate to this situation in a fashion that will allow us to answer the question that will surely be put to us at some point in the future, which is “What did you do to help save the world?”
As within so without … when a critical mass of humans become peace within, patient, loving, compassionate, and harmless, the outer world will reflect our inner world of freewill choices.
