Or rather we had an experience that vaguely related to making love but was a thing unto itself.
Of the few psychedelic thinkers whose strange ideas breached the bland guard of the mainstream, Mc Kenna’s facility with language sets him apart.
He has endeared himself to the psychedelic community by way of his earnest and sci-fi-like descriptions of DMT, which has helped to assemble a new psychedelic vocabulary. Mc Kenna touched land somewhere, met some little elves, and came back to tell us about it.
He had insight into our collective experience as technological creatures, and predicted a future world of virtual reality and simulation.
He passed away in 2000, but I wish he could have been here for the Oculus Rift.
There is the issue of the Timewave Theory, where, combining historical events with the I Ching, he predicted the end of the world (or ‘beginning,’ somehow, it’s unclear) on December 21, 2012. And now, many others have taken Mc Kenna’s lead, manning their own expeditions into the psyche.
There were ironic parties that night, and since the world didn’t end, maybe it was a premeditated jest to avoid becoming a cult figure, a seed of doubt for the devout. It’s lonely, probably, but he’s also free from our rote and dominant Western culture. I recommend experimenting; allow yourself a moment to wander through the elfish, “self-dribbling machine” land of Mc Kenna’s famous DMT description.
The totemic animal image for the future human to model is the octopus.
This is because the cephalopods, the squids and octopi, lowly creatures though they may seem, have perfected a form of communication that is both psychedelic and telepathic — an inspiring model for the human communications of the future.”— On Language “Human symbol formation, linguistic facility, and sensitivity to community values may also shift under the influence of psychoactive and physiologically active metabolites.” On Sex “Then we made love.
Legalization of marijuana is thus a complex issue, since it involves legitimating a social factor that might ameliorate or even modify ego-dominant values.” “There is no doubt that cannabis is trivialized as a commodity and is degraded by the designation ‘recreational drug,’ but there is also no doubt that when used occasionally in a context of ritual and culturally reinforced expectation of a transformation of consciousness, cannabis is capable of nearly the full spectrum of psychedelic effects associated with hallucinogens.” “It diminishes the power of ego, has a mitigating effect on competitiveness, causes one to question authority, and reinforces the notion of the merely relative importance of social values.” “If every alcoholic were a pothead, if every crack user were a pothead, if every smoker smoked only cannabis, the social consequences of the ‘drug problem’ would be transformed.” On Ayahuasca “The word ayahuasca is a Quechua word that roughly translates as ‘vine of the dead’ or ‘vine of souls.’” “Native peoples of the Amazon region have brilliantly exploited these facts in their search for techniques to access the magical dimensions crucial to shamanism.
By combining, in ayahuasca, DMT-containing plants with plants that contain MAO inhibitors, they have long exploited a pharmacological mechanism, MAO inhibition, not described by Western science until the 1950s.” “It’s themes and hallucinations are oriented toward the organic and the natural world, in marked contrast to the titanic, alien, and off-planet motifs that characterize the DMT flash.” “The experience induced by ayahuasca includes extremely rich tapestries of visual hallucination that are particularly susceptible to being ‘driven’ and directed by sound, especially vocally produced sound.” “Ayahuasqueros use sound and suggestion to direct healing energy into parts of the body and unexamined aspects of an individual’s personal history where psychic tension has come to rest.
