This is a great clip I cut from the lecture "Dreaming Awake at the End of Time." In this clip Terence discusses what he believes to be the true realization of enlightenment.
Enjoy!

  1. Terence Mckenna was truly one of the greatest geniuses of the modern age.

  2. knowing free will doesn’t exist leads to knowing no separate you exists and its all just one mysterious happening, thats enlightenment

    • but the true consequences of our actions are unknowable as if they might as well be determined. @DESYPHER

    • @James Brooks what do you mean by true consequences? Let’s think about unconscious actions versus conscious intent. When unconscious your run by the programming of your limbic system i.e the flesh body. This part of your psyche may well be predetermined with the neurotransmitter chemicals for a scripted reward process. In the Dune books Paul is given a test to see if he is a beast or human. When he is able to control his own life he is declared human. Conscious intention on the other hand is using the intellect of your soul. You may not be able to predict the outcome to the nth iteration of the causal process matrix, at least you are steering the rudder of the boat.

    • >”Saying that everything is predetermined can lead to the delusion that your actions have no consequences and nothing matters, so you can do whatever you want.”
      no you can’t do whatever you want, thats the whole idea of no free will.
      theres not even a you to do or not do. in that sense “you” are much like the weather (you can call the weather deterministic if you want)
      “Events happen, deeds are done, but there is no individual doer thereof.”
      and nothing does indeed matter, it is home. you are nothing and so everything, nowhere and everywhere

    • NAH, A BETTER ENLIGHTENMENT IS THAT – U KNOW WHY THERE IS NO FREEWILL, HOW THERE IS NO FREEWILL, SAME FOR THE OTHER THINGS U MENTION. ‘WHY’ IS THE KEY PART. I DON’T AGREE WITH WHAT U HAVE FOUND (I’D AGREE THERE IS NO FREEWILL, BUT IT IS BECAUSE THIS BROKE / GOT BROKEN, AND THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT HAVE KEPT THAT CONSPIRACY GOING), BUT IF IT WERE TRUE, THEN BEING ENLIGHTENED IN REGARD TO IT, WOULD MEAN U ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND IT FULLY. FROM I SUPPOSE WHAT U CAN CALL AN INTUITIVE WAY, AND ALSO FROM THE MORE ‘LEFT BRAIN’ THINKING IN WORDS WAY – IE, THE ONE WHERE U MAY ATTEMPT TO DESCRIBE WHAT U KNOW IN LANGUAGE.
      WHEN I SAY ‘WHY’ I MEAN – U WOULD ACTUALLY KNOW WHAT MADE THIS, AND WHY IT DID SO, AND WHY SOULS ARE IN IT WHO LACK FREEWILL, ETC ETC. AND WHAT A SOUL OR WHATEVER EVEN IS.

    • UNLESS U WERE MEANING IT IN THE SENSE LIKE – EG ME POSTING THESE REPLIES TO U. IT’S NOT THAT I HAVE NO CHOICE AND HAVE TO TYPE THEM AS I HAVE, IT’S NOT SO MUCH THAT SOMETHING ELSE FORCED ME TO THIS VIDEO AND TO READ COMMENTS AT IT, IT IS THAT REGARDLESS OF WHAT I SEEM TO CHOOSE TO DO, THAT IT IS ‘SET IN STONE’ – LIKE CHESS OR SIMILAR MAYBE? U HAVE FREEWILL TO CHOOSE WHICH MOVES TO MAKE, BUT IT IS LIMITED BY – THE RULES, THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE MOVES.
      I HAVE NOTICED HUNDREDS OF TIMES – THERE IS A THING THAT DOES KNOW HOW STUFF IS GOING TO HAPPEN, NOT IN A NORMAL PSYCHIC WAY BASED ON LOOKING AT THE NOW, AND UNDERSTANDING PATTERNS AND ENERGIES ETC, AND ‘SEEING’ HOW IT IS LIKELY GOING TO TURN OUT – IN A VERY DIFFERENT WAY, THEY LITERALLY SEEM TO BE IN THE FUTURE, SLIGHTLY AHEAD ALL THE TIME. IT IS THAT BACKWARDS TIME OR AHRIMANIC ASPECT, I THINK, THAT PREVENTS TRUE FREEWILL, FROM WITHIN THE ALREADY BROKEN STRUCTURE THAT THIS IS.

  3. Tthank you for sharing this. I really love theory about world made of language. Peace

  4. The thing is that as soon as you try to grasp enlightenement in order to hold onto it, you will find that it has escaped. There is a certain level of frustration associated with those transcendent experiences in that they tend to be highly personal and somewhat hard to share. McKenna said that “the sin is pride”. As soon as the slightest bit of ego appears on that scene all is lost.

    • When you have fully realized there will be nothing for you to lose, as there is nothing to hold on to. There will be no questions when you’ve seen past all illusion. Goodluck on your journey 🙏🏻

  5. So basically we are meat robots struggling to evolve ourselves into meat robots with free will.

  6. Culture keeping you like a child, dumbed down. culture is not your friend.
    Neoteny – retention of juvenile characteristics into adulthood.
    Existence made of language, code..
