The Many Wisdoms of Terrence Mckenna;

"Whats so progressive about the media? It spreads darkness at the speed of light."

"What blinds us, or makes historical progress very difficult is our lack of awareness of our ignorance."

"Western Civilization is a gun pointed at the head of the planet."

"We must stop this consumption of culture and start creating it."

"We're told No, we're unimportant, we're peripheral. "Get a degree, get a this, get a that." And then your a player. You don't even want to play in that game. Reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dieing world."

"The world we perceive is a tiny fraction of the world which we can perceive, which is a tiny fraction of the perceivable world."

"The reason we all feel alienated is because our society is infantile, trivial and stupid."

    this is good. very little original content is generated. for example, most of the top youtube videos are just shitty parody or comentary on shit that already exists. its so sad...
