Dennis McKenna: A New Theory Of Neural Evolution

I put together a new video from a David Ellenbogen interview with Dennis McKenna (brother of Terence) where he expounds on Plant/Human Symbiosis and other fascinating topics such as the nature of the relationship between consciousness, drugs, plants, and the cosmos. Thanks to David for permission to use the interview.

    Interesting. I can’t say I believe it, but it was an interesting conversation to hear.

    humans tend to regard “consciousness” as something exclusive to humans
    and hardly anyone regards plants as conscious
    and yet plants are the most highly evolved, self sustaining organisms on the planet

    modern human are now so disconnected from plants
    they couldn’t possibly understand the connection between plant & human consciousness

    • Redacted

      Maybe they are self aware. Why would we even care?

      • BuzzCoastin

        the most perspicacious reason would be
        that plants are critical to human existence
        but humans aren’t critical to the existence of most plants
        some humans like Sepp Holzer and Masanobu Fukuoka
        have found sustainable ways of living through the observation of plants
        a particularly valuable lesson at this point in time

        • Redacted

          I don’t buy it.

          • BuzzCoastin

            not selling anything
            & the plants could care less whether you buy it or not
            but if the feces soon hits the air cooling device
            knowledge of plants will be more helpful
            than knowing how to comment at Disinfo

            oh & all the food you eat is from plants
            except for the additives
            and 50% the air you breath comes from plants

          • Zenc

            You’ve convinced me.

            These plants are a silent lurking menace with immense destructive potential relative to humans.

            We need to kill as many as possible and enslave the rest.

          • BuzzCoastin

            obviously you need a schroom
            take about 7 grams of a nice cubensi
            and call me in the morning

          • Zenc

            7 dried grams of the stuff I get and I’d need an interstellar spaceship to send you a message in the morning.

            There are still some strains of the old PF and PF Hawaiian floating around and they are still glorious.

            That man knew his business.

            Thanks Bill

          • Monkey See Monkey Do

            The Happening?

          • Zenc

            Worst movie ever.

          • Signal Reference

             I love idiots like this. who cares if you dont buy it? lol…does it mean its not true cause an arse hole like you says so?

            welcome to the world of idiots.

      • Calypso_1

        You’ve never communicated with a plant?

    Dennis McKenna was supposed to be working on his book
    “The Brotherhood Of The Screaming Abyss”

    Where is it Dennis! Huh!? Huh!!??

    Seriously, I haven’t waited with such anticipation since I heard Dale
    Pendell was releasing the other books in his Pharmako series.

    • Slider dust

      His book should be out late September

  • We Have Lost The Gift

    On a subatomic level there is no difference between us and plants or anything else for that matter, We are all one big family. At one time we all communicated and understood each other, but for whatever reason we lost that gift. I’m hopping we get it back.

    Left in the Dark has been on my backlog of reading for a while now. Maybe i should get to it.
