Terence McKenna ponders UFOs

Terence McKenna
1946 - 2000

This one-hour audio talk from Terence McKenna attempts to unravel the meaning of the UFO and it's overt influence on human consciousness.. He speaks with a clarity and depth that leaves me thunderstruck. His ideas seem an elegant match to the absurdity of the overall phenomenon.

Direct link to The Psychedelic Salon, where I found this excellent audio essay. This talk was recorder in December of 1982. He is quoted below.

the talk with Terence begins at the 4:50 time count
The extraterrestrial is the human over soul in its general and particulate expression on the planet. . . . The over soul is some kind of field that is generated by human beings, but that is not under the control of any institution, any government, and religion. It is actually the most intelligent thing on the planet, and it regulates human culture through the release of ideas out of eternity and into the continuum of history.

The discs which haunt the skies of Earth indicate that the unconscious cannot be kept waiting forever. These things are going to have to be dealt with
- Terrence McKenna, 1982

Here's another fascinating talk where Terrence talks about his TIME WAVE ZERO ideas and how they colide with the 2012 meme. Linked HERE.

McKenna is one of my favorite thinkers on the UFO phenomenon, and just one of my favorite thinkers and raconteurs, period.

One quick correction: it's Terence. One "r."

Great find. The Psychedelic Salon is a goldmine.

One gets the impression that Terence's greatest struggle during an interview was trying to slow down his impressive train of thoughts to manageable speeds for the rest of the monkey tribe ;)

I for one would love to imagine what a modern shamanic civilization would look like, in which we all flew through the sky riding our own personal flying SOUL-cer :3

Here's a link to Clifford Pickover's site.

It's about DMT,McKenna,Strieber,aliens,aternate realities etc.
Worth a read,not that I'm saying I agree with all of it,but it is worth pondering over still.
