The Cult of Culture

By far the greatest Terence McKenna lecture I’ve yet experienced is his Culture and Ideology are not your friends, given in Denver, April 1999.

And for the amount of time I spend listening to Terence, that’s saying something.

"This is a struggle between novelty and habit . . . [Your culture] is the greatest barrier to your enlightenment, your education, and your decency . . . Cultures are virtual realities made of language."
