You matter. You count. You come from realms of unimaginable power and light, and you will return to those realms. Terence McKenna was an astonishingly polymathic mind, and at the center of his dazzling web of interests was the psychedelic experience, specifically the effects of psilocybin and DMT. And though he thought our world was in crisis, he helped us find our light, love, and deep appreciation for this incredible gift of existence. And if you know the words that the world is made of, you can make of it whatever you wish. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles.

As he said in " Gathering Momentum for a Leap " :. It's an ecstasy in itself. That's why, to me, what the essence of being psychedelic is is a flirtation with detail and multiplicity. I mean, that's why I'm so fascinated by history, because it's such a complex object. I like complex stuff—history, art history, philosophy, languages, magic—all of these things. I like the well-wrought and complex, the pattern turned in on to itself, the place where mind has moved across the sand and left a tracing. McKenna also seemed to enjoy viewing ideas, people, words, phrases, books, and other things as—in addition to what each of these things are in and for themselves—memes.
