There is the issue of the Timewave Theory, where, combining historical events with the I Ching, he predicted the end of the world (or ‘beginning,’ somehow, it’s unclear) on December 21, 2012. And now, many others have taken Mc Kenna’s lead, manning their own expeditions into the psyche.There were ironic parties that night, and since the world didn’t end, maybe it was a premeditated jest to avoid becoming a cult figure, a seed of doubt for the devout. It’s lonely, probably, but he’s also free from our rote and dominant Western culture. I recommend experimenting; allow yourself a moment to wander through the elfish, “self-dribbling machine” land of Mc Kenna’s famous DMT description.But if we sufficiently reconstructed our image of self and world, we could make out of psychopharmacology the stuff of our grandest hopes and dreams.” On DMT “Under the influence of DMT, the world becomes an Arabian labyrinth, a palace, a more than possible Martian jewel, vast with motifs that flood the gaping mind with complex and wordless awe.” “The extraordinary ease with which DMT utterly destroys all boundaries and conveys one into an impossible-to-anticipate and compellingly Other dimension is one of the miracles of life itself.

I looked right into it, and it was the surface of my own mind reflected in front of me.Mc Kenna advocated for the “legalization of nature.” He thought it was dangerous to forbid access to any plant medicine.

But he wasn’t ignorant of the addictive nature of heroin and cocaine, modern inventions that need regulation.

And, indeed, this image, sickeningly Orwellian, applies to the mass of human beings now living in the high-tech industrial democracies.

Their authenticity lies in their ability to obey and follow mass style changes that are conveyed through the media.” “I believe that the failure of our civilization to come to terms with the issue of drugs and habitual destructive behavior is a legacy of unhappiness for us all.

Of the few psychedelic thinkers whose strange ideas breached the bland guard of the mainstream, Mc Kenna’s facility with language sets him apart.

He has endeared himself to the psychedelic community by way of his earnest and sci-fi-like descriptions of DMT, which has helped to assemble a new psychedelic vocabulary. Mc Kenna touched land somewhere, met some little elves, and came back to tell us about it.

He was a storyteller, a feminist and an environmentalist.
