Culture Is Not Your Friend

Terence McKenna on the impact of culture on our lives. Taken from a lecture called "Psychedelics In The Age Of Intelligent Machines" (27 April 1999 - Seattle). Created by The Omega Point Project.



“We are told 'no', we're unimportant, we're peripheral. 'Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.' And then you're a player, you don't want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.” -Terence McKenna

Your Indoctrination



“Those who are able to see beyond the shadows and lies of their culture will never be understood, let alone believed, by the masses.” -Plato (427–347 BC)


“We are not taught to be thinkers, but reflectors of our culture. Let's teach our children to be thinkers.” -Jacque Fresco
