Terence McKenna & Riane Eisler ~ Man & Woman At The End Of History (1988)



Terence McKenna & Riane Tennenhaus Eisler 
Man And Woman At The End Of History. Ojai CA, Mill Valley CA. (1988)

This seminar examined how one of the most fundamental human relationships, that between male and female, shapes our relationship to technology and ultimately to culture and nature. We looked at the forms of relationship between women and men in the shift from a society based on domination to one based on partnership. This is an exploration of how feminism, technology and the telling of a new story will contribute to rescuing us from history. Riane Eisler is best known for her scholarily authoring of her formidable book, "Chalice and the Blade." 

Note: This recording comes from a serialization on Roy of Hollywood's show on KPFK. It ends with Terence cut short mid sentence.

Terence McKenna: Language About The Unspeakable ~ Part 6/6



Raving In The Light Of The Third Millennium
Language About The Unspeakable
Maui, Hawaii, February 1994


Firstly, many thanks to Kevin Esbensen for making this upload possible. Kevin had a VHS copy from the original event (Recorded by AXIOM, I can't find them on the net and these recordings seem to be no longer available, I will gladly remove them upon request) which he then converted to DVD and kindly sent copies to me at his own expense to be shared with the community here. I'm very grateful to be able to present this for you on Kevin's behalf.


This talk has only appeared in audio format as far as I know on The Psychedelic Salon as, "In Praise Of Psychedelics" and here as, "Speaking The Unspeakable". As a host of a channel that archives McKenna material it's a great pleasure to be able to bring you something new (to the web) that may have been lost to time if not for the foresight and generosity of Mr. Esbensen, thank you Kevin.

A Deep Dive Into The Mind Of McKenna




This Episode of The Psychedelic Salon Podcast is a must hear for any student of McKenna or casual listener alike. There are some home truths and insights into Terence that will come as a surprise to many and has made me begin listening to these talks again with this information and light shone on McKenna the person, for me it makes him all the more human, conflicted and complex a character... one of us.


Lorenzo ends the podcast with the great news that more tapes (over 160!) will be digitized and aired on The Psychedelic Salon in the coming months, so get yourselves over there and support the Podcast.


Much love, thanks and respect to Lorenzo, Bruce, Dennis and Kat for sharing this with us.

This program is a recording of part of a live event at the Esalen Institute near Big Sur, California. The workshop, titled "Terence McKenna: Beyond 2012", was led by Bruce Damer and Lorenzo Hagerty. This specific recording took place on Saturday morning, June 16th and consists of Bruce's "deep dive" into the mind of McKenna. It begins with Bruce's "Ode to Terence" and is followed by Bruce's readings of parts of the soon-to-be published book by Terence's brother, Dennis . . . the book's title: "Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss".

The Village is the Village, the Land is the Land, the Suicide of the Spaceman and Other Stories (1996)


I've been digging for a copy of this or any information regarding it since a friend (Andrew. G) told me about it in the late 90's and I fell in love with the title. I've also seen the title translated as, "The Village...the Village...the Earth...the Earth, and the Suicide of the Astronaut." It is a children's book by Muammar Gaddafi that from what I can glean takes a sarcastic swipe at Western history. This PDF is in Arabic and was uploaded online last year. Gaddafi would have been 70 this month (according to some sources, it's vague, some say Spring others September). I was excited just to see it and the illustrations until I can get it translated. Due to the lack of information I've been able to find on it (There's less on the net than there was 5 years ago) if not an occult book it's certainly hidden.

Terence McKenna: Speaking The Unspeakable


Lecture given by Terence McKenna in early 1994 on the Hawaiian island of Maui.


"Anyone who loves adventure, and who loves life, and who loves the experience of being, has an obligation, I think, to explore this [the psychedelic realm]. It's as much a part of your identity as your sexuality, your ancestral history, or your hopes and fears. And to ignore it is to choose to play with less than a full deck. Don't do that. Play with a full deck!"


"Millions of people right now are being warehoused by television. Television is the heroin of the electrified middle class."


"It's ridiculous to criticize a drug you haven't taken. It's sheer, boneheaded, know-nothingism."

Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles (2011)


Toynbee tiles are linoleum tiles of unknown origin found embedded in the asphalt of streets in about two dozen major cities in the United States and four South American capitals. Since the 1980s, several hundred tiles have been discovered. They are generally about the size of an American license plate and contain some variation on the following inscription:

TOYNBEE IDEA
IN KUBRICK'S 2001
RESURRECT DEAD
ON PLANET JUPITER.


In the course of the film, evidence is presented that a reclusive Philadelphia resident, Severino “Sevy” Verna, placed the tiles through a hole in the floor of his car while broadcasting a message via short wave radio about his theories. ~ wiki

Terence McKenna: Dreaming Awake At The End Of Time (1998)



Dreaming Awake At The End Of Time
San Francisco, December 13, 1998

Join Terence McKenna, author, explorer and philosopher for a think along deconstruction of the deepening worldwide weirdness. With his characteristic hope and humor, McKenna examined time and its mysteries, the nature of language, the techniques of ecstasy, high technology and virtual cyberspace, the role of hallucinogenic plants in shamanism and the evolution of human cultures, and the foundations of post-modern spirituality. The lecture and discussion was didactic, syncretic, challenging, eclectic, eidetic and irreverent intellectual adventure - "for those who have grown weary of Moldevite suppositories and unicorny flimflam!

Peter J. Carroll: Liber Null (1978) Psychonaut (1982) (published 1987)



Peter J. Carroll is a leading figure within the Chaos Magic movement. Along with "The New Equinox" publisher and writer Ray Sherwin, Carroll is widely considered to be the originator of Chaos Magic as an independent field of occult exploration. 

A meeting between Peter J. Carroll and Ray Sherwin in Deptford in 1976 has been claimed as the birthplace of chaos magic, and in 1978 Carroll and Sherwin founded the Illuminates of Thanateros (IOT), a chaos magic organization. Liber Null (1978) by Peter J. Carroll further developed this new, experimental perspective on magic. This book and Carroll's Psychonaut (1981) remain important sources.

Hazelwood Trialogue: Part 5 - Angels, Entities And The Heavens (Terence McKenna, Rupert Sheldrake, Ralph Abraham)



Hazelwood Trialogue: Part 5 ~ Angels, Entities And The Heavens

Terence McKenna, Rupert Sheldrake, Ralph Abraham

Disincarnate entities and their messages. Their concern with the development of language. Angels as the guardians and intelligences of the natural world. Recovering a sense of the life of the universe. Recovering the link between heaven as a state of being and the actual sky. The Islamic conception of paradise. Heaven as a world without physics. Eternity and the DMT state. The need to resacralize the sky. The Merkaba mystics. The Polynesian notion of heaven. The physical collapse of the universe. Could there be negative entities located in the heavens? Black holes, quasars and galactic centres. The redemption of the world soul through the physical healing of the earth. A ritual invocation of the world soul. The soul can be conceived of in terms of fields. The noosphere. Field models for the world soul.
