Reflections

The mind is like a wild monkey

People say that what we are seeking is the meaning for life. I don't think that's what we are seeking. I think what we're seeking is an experience of being alive.

Joseph Campbell, Company

A Human being is a part of a whole, called by us 'Universe' a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of consciousness.

A. Einstein, Company

The most important thing in life is to establish an unafraid heartfelt communications with others.

Sogyal Rinpoche, Company

One definition of the tools I seek is that they should be words in a vocabulary, a vocabulary that might allow each human being to more consciously and more clearly communicate with the interior of his own mind and psyche. That might be called a vocabulary of awareness.

Alexander Shulgin, Company

Psychedelics put you in touch with something that is both real and immediate the mind of the planet. This is the oversoul of all life on earth .... The Gaia hypothesis, which began by proposing that the entire planet is a self¬regulating system, has now been brought to the level where some people are saying 'it's almost alive.' But I would go much further than that. Not only is it alive, but it is minded.

Terence McKenna, Company

The only revolution that can work is the inner transformation of every human being.

Peyote Cactus, Oloiuqui, seeds, mushrooms,
narcotic Mint leaves, or Ayahuasca
...the ethnographic principle is the same.
These plants contain spirit power.

We wouldn't be here if it weren't for
psychedelic drugs. In terms of the role of psilocybin
in human evolution on the grasslands of Africa, people
not on drugs were behind the curve. The fact is that,
in terms of human evolution, people not on
psychedelics are not fully human.

-T. McKenna-

We are looking for games worth playing.
