Terence McKenna – Psychonaut/Scientist/Anarchist/Feminist et al

During an enlightening conversation with one of my dear friends this past weekend, I was reminded that I used to read the writings of Terence McKenna frequently.  Enjoy:

Our present global crisis is more profound than any previous historical crises; hence our solutions must be equally drastic. I propose that we should adopt the plant as the organizational model for life in the twenty-first century, just as the computer seems to be the dominant mental/social model of the late twentieth century, and the steam engine was the guiding image of the nineteenth century.

This means reaching back in time to models that were successful fifteen thousand to twenty thousand years ago. When this is done it becomes possible to see plants as food, shelter, clothing, and sources of education and religion.

Terence McKenna, Plan/Plant/Planet.
