My notion of what the psychedelic experience is, for us, that we each must become like fishermen, and go out on to the dark ocean of mind, and let our nets down into that sea. And what you’re after is not some behemoth, that will tear through your nets, follow them and drag you in your little boat, you know, into the abyss, nor are what we’re looking for a bunch of sardines that can slip through your net and disappear. Ideas like, “Have you ever noticed that your little finger exactly fits your nostril?”, and stuff like that. What we are looking for are middle-size ideas, that are not so small that they are trivial, and not so large that they’re incomprehensible. Middle-size ideas we can wrestle into our boat and take back to the folks on shore, and have fish dinner. And every one of us when we go into the psychedelic state, this is what we should be looking for. It’s not for your elucidation, it’s not part of your self-directed psychotherapy. You are an explorer, and you represent our species, and the greatest good you can do is to bring back a new idea, because our world is in danger by the absence of good ideas. Our world is in crisis because of the absence of consciousness. And so to whatever degree any one of us can bring back a small piece of the picture and contribute it to the building of the new paradigm, then we participate in the redemption of the human spirit, and that after all is what it’s really all about. -Terence Mckenna

i really don’t like it when people copy other peoples shit. mostly quotes & stories. but if they do they should at least say they. not act like it theirs. gotta give credit to the creator. it gets annoying especially if its a romantic quote that some dude or chick said but they don’t show any signs that its not theirs. they make it seem like they made it when they didn’t. whats up with the world today? haha… well we all got some kind of pet peeve others get over it. i personally do but when its repeated it gets irritating. dont get me wrong people are people.. im pretty humane but if it comes down to the point.. well lol you got what im saying. good day folks.
