All quotes from Terence McKenna’s

The Darwinian idea of evolution is: it’s a world of fang and claw, and the swiftest, the cruelest, the largest, the fastest—these dominate. The actual situation (which has been seen to be now for about thirty years, but the implications are making their way very slowly into orthodox evolutionary theory) is actually: cooperation is what nature seeks to consolidate and conserve. And it is the species which can make itself most user-friendly to its neighbor species which actually survives.

I see the whole world we’re living in as basically the legacy of LSD. What it did to language in the 1960s is now visible as culture in the 1980s.
