Watch “Perhaps “CRAZY” Is the Path – Terence McKenna – Black Screen”
“For Terence McKenna, sanity was not just a personal concern, but a collective one as well. As a visionary thinker and social critic, McKenna believed that the health of our society depends on our ability to recognize and confront the many forms of insanity that permeate our culture. He saw the world as a place of profound beauty and potential, but also as a place of danger and uncertainty, where the forces of conformity, greed, and violence threaten to overwhelm us at every turn. Through his writings and lectures, McKenna urged his listeners to embrace a more expansive and visionary sense of sanity, one that recognizes the interconnectedness of all things and the importance of cultivating a deep sense of empathy and compassion for all beings.
McKenna argued that our culture’s obsession with productivity, conformity, and materialism has driven many people to the brink of insanity, and that true sanity can only be found through a radical reevaluation of our values and priorities.
BLACK SCREEN: After 3 minutes the animation switches to the dark screen because I like to meditate and/or fall asleep to contemplative talks like these. This allows the words to drip into my mind during deep states of brain activity (delta waves). In my experience, this tends to produce insightful dreams. This talk was digitally remastered and cleaned up with cutting-edge AI sound software – you won’t find better-sounding Terence McKenna videos anywhere.”
