PROGRAM NOTES: Today’s podcast features the first of the recordings from last weekend’s workshop (titled “Terence McKenna: Beyond 2012”) that Bruce Damer and Lorenzo led in the Los Angeles area on January 28, 2012. In addition to Lorenzo’s remarks and some comments by those in attendance, three videos created by Bruce Damer were shown. Those videos are embedded below. The second part of the podcast is the Occupy Movement update, which features a conversation between Lawrence Lessig and Chris Hedges. During the course of their conversation they debate the relative merits of pushing for a Constitutional Convention verses non-violent civil disobedience. Also included is a sound bite from one of OccupyFreedomLA’s live video feeds in which a speaker addresses the actions now being taken by those who are suffering from the foreclosure epidemic that is facing so many people in the U.S.

Terence McKenna Snippet Evolution Part 1

"Where is life carrying us? What is this all about? Is it carrying us toward extinction, so that the rest of nature can heave an enormous sigh of relief and get back to the business of nest building, mating flights, ova postering...? Or, is it carrying us toward some kind of transition?"

Terence McKenna Snippet Reflections on 2012 Part 2

"Our inability to anticipate the synergies of between our technologies..., I mean the computers, LSD, spacecraft, holograms, organic superconductivity..., those are just [five] areas where the integration of those concerns will have unimaginable consequences."

Terence McKenna Snippet Reflections on 2012 Part 1

"We are just at the brink of taking these various pieces of the God/Magician puzzle, and putting them together, and figuring out..., what can you do? what do you do? ...if you can do anything? I mean, that's really the question at the end of history. Once all boundaries are overcome, what is the human agenda?"

C-Realm - Podcast 291: High Energy and Low Latency

KMO talks with Bruce Damer and Galen Brandt about what it’s like to have crossed the threshold into 2012 after so many years expectations built up listening to Terence McKenna novelty and concrescence. Other topics of discussion include upgrading our personal and societal operating systems, the complexity of our world made by nerds, and the reality of the situation on the ground in Pakistan and how it differs from the worldview propagated by the screaming media.

Terence McKenna Snippet Imagination Part 1

"This movie is an exercise in ceremonial cinema for the less adjusted among us. It was catalyzed from private video recordings that have been extracted and infused into a multi-temporal cascade of exotic music, animations, and visual fx. What has resulted is an expansive voyage created for ecodelic minds and an unforgettable portrait of Terence McKenna, one of our specie's most interesting spirits."
