Terence McKenna may be due for a posthumous appearance on the hip-hop charts, as a sample of the philosopher leads off one of the songs on the new Trap God 2 mixtape from Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane. Gucci is one of the leading proponents of the so-called “trap” style that has been the dominant sound in rap for the past year or so, and the McKenna quote serves as a manifesto of sorts. The track in question is the work of star producer Lex Luger:
In this not-to-miss Evolver event, cultural icons and visionary thinkers Douglas Rushkoff and Dennis McKenna will discuss “Time Waves, Present Shock, DMT, & The Psychedelic Legacy of Terence McKenna in NYC, March 14. They will look back on Terence McKenna’s life’s work — including his theory of increasing novelty — and explore what Rushkoff calls “presentism,” the new ethos of a society that’s always on, in real time, updating live. Dennis McKenna is author of “The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss: My Life with Terence McKenna.” Douglas Rushkoff’s new book is “Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now.”

I love Terence McKenna, but thanks to the detective work of controversial author and gnosticmedia.com founder Jan Irvin, I’m wondering if the late author was worthy of my trust.
Irvin has unearthed a government document that he claims may implicate McKenna as a (gasp!) Central Intelligence Agency plant. Download the document and decide for yourself. Jan has the brass balls to refer to Mckenna as a “Useful idiot”, but what use would he have been to the CIA? McKenna has been useful to me: I can think of few others who have so wonderfully allowed my own personal explorations in spirituality to bloom, but how could the kind of personal transformation espoused by McKenna possibly benefit the intelligence community?
Any thoughts on this? Is this proof to you, my fellow Disinfonauts?
The following document was produced as a collaboration between myself and the hyperdimensional symbiote……
OK….. Rules…. Let’s establish a few rules for this document, before we begin.
First, it is a rough draft. Which means I can say what I want and try to fix it or scrap it [or not] as I will. The target audience has not yet been selected. Second… It is Pornography, which means No Decent Person should ever lay eyes upon it. Every one’s clothes stay on, but it will get nasty before we are done……
Let this also be a Disclaimer. You have been warned…..
I should also establish that I don’t know what iyam doing. Not Really. But iyam also among the lonely few that know anything at all about …..This topic.… Read the rest

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.
Tony Wright and Graham Gynn are authors of Left In The Dark- the book that presents Tony’s research outlining a radical re-interpretation of the current data regarding human evolution and, they contend, our recent degenerated state we call “civilization”. You can read the book for free here. Despite such a young and extreme proposal positive reactions are growing and include such minds as Dennis McKenna, Stanislav Grof, Colin Groves, Michael Winkelman and many others.
There are many mysterious anomalies about human evolution yet to be adequately explained. These include the human brains rapid expansion in size and complexity, why this accelerating expansion suddenly stalled roughly 200,000 years ago and our brains have been shrinking ever since, and why our rare glimpses of genius goes hand in hand with our species wide insanity.… Read the rest
Beware the “clockwork [sic] elves” who control the global elite promising them “eternal life, total power, total control, everything you could ever want, just kill everyone [...] friendly little guys…” Via Modern Mythology:
Right. Most if not all mythologies include creatures resembling elves. Therefore the archetypal image must be based upon encounters with the Machine … Er … Clockwork Elves. As with all paranoid logic, this argument is easily felled by Occam’s Razor, which advocates that “entities must not be multiplied beyond necessity,” in short, that the “simplest answer is most likely the correct one.” It is much more plausible to propose that the entities encountered during the DMT-experience could very well bear some measure of resemblance to elves (elongated and angular shapes are common); that one comes to think “if they look like elves, they are elves” at least makes sense!
THERE ARE NO FUCKING MACHINE ELVES!
