Trialogue #32: The World Soul

Recorded in 1989. Terence begins by telling a rather amazing story about a walk he had on a beach that turned into a fractal psychedelic experience, and without the aid of any substances I should add. From there it takes a while to get to the World Soul, and then after talking for a while, they discover that they are actually talking about different concepts! A couple of my favorite McKenna quotes from this talk are: “For my money, monotheism is the single most reactionary force in all of human history. I don’t even know what is running second,” and “Democracy is a step away from anarchy.”

“I think that creativity depends on having sufficient indeterminacy around for a new pattern to arise up within it.” -Rupert Sheldrake

“If there is no randomness in the universe, then what do we mean by chaos?” -Rupert Sheldrake

“Not thinking about the World Soul but the individual soul, that the seizure of DMT is almost like a simulacrum of death itself, and that you seem to see into an ecology of souls.” -Terence McKenna

“The World Soul, I think, is in communication with us in the culminating moment of human history. This is all being scripted for a purpose and toward an end unglimpsed by us but tied up with the survival of everything.” -Terence McKenna

“Tourism is a kind of secularized form of pilgrimage.” -Rupert Sheldrake

“At the root of many problems is the denial of the problem and the fact that we maintain unconsciousness of the problem.” -Ralph Abraham

“I hold monotheism responsible for the mess that we’re in from Abraham right on down to the present moment. I think it is the metaphor which is responsible for the dominator break-out, and that until we get a more polytheistic, nature-oriented conception of reality we will be pretty much under the gun.” -Terence McKenna

“For my money, monotheism is the single most reactionary force in all of human history. I don’t even know what is running second.” -Terence McKenna

“Democracy is a step away from anarchy.” -Terence McKenna

“Perhaps to unify consciousness it isn’t a Western hemisphere goddess we need but simply a recognition of Gaia.” -Terence McKenna
