"Food of the Gods by Terence McKenna (via anditsallinsanity)
Our culture, self-toxified by the poisonous by-products of technology and egocentric ideology, is the unhappy interior of the dominator attitude that alteration of consciousness by the use of plants and substances is somehow wrong, onanistic, and perversely antisocial. I will argue that suppression of shamanic gnosis, with its reliance and insistence on ecstatic dissolution of the ego, has robbed us of life’s meaning and made us enemies of the planet, of ourselves, and our grandchildren. We are killing the planet in order to keep intact the wrongheaded assumptions of the ego-dominator cultural style.
It is time for change"
