Two realities.
The dying one, full of frustrations, desires, pushes and pulls.
The other, reality of truth, of insights, of visions, the connected matrix of what is felt, seen inside.
Two realities, one is slowly melting, fading away with every bail out lost.
One day as we close our sleepy eyes and awaken in the magical dream
the image that we hold
will not fade from our hearts.
It will only explode, explode into a vivid way, of way of heart.
It will only explode, and so shall we.

Terence McKenna: Culture is not your friend

Culture is not your friend, it's an impediment to understanding what's going on. That's why to my mind the word cult and the word culture have a direct relationship to each other. Culture is a cult and if you feel revulsion at the thought of somebody offering to the great carrot, just notice that your own culture is an extremely repressive cult that leads to all kinds of humiliation and degradation, and automatic and unquestioned and unthinking behaviour.

I mean the American family is what keeps American psychotherapy alive and well. This is a cauldron for the production of neurosis.

All culture is a kind of congame, the most dangerous candy you can hand out is candy that makes people start questioning the rules of the game.
