“We have to create culture, don’t watch TV, don’t read magazines, don’t even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe. What is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears.
- Terence McKenna
“You have to take seriously the notion that understanding the universe is your

“The Internet introduces everybody, no matter how weird, how marginalized, how peculiar, to the fact that there are others like you. There are others like you. FIND the others. MAKE common cause. Realize that it’s the deals you cut and the friends you make that determine where you’ll be standing when the flash hits. That’s just obvious.”
- Terence McKenna (His last interview)
