„Our ability to destroy ourselves is the mirror image of our ability to save ourselves“

—  Terence McKenna American ethnobotanist 1946 - 2000

Psychedelic Society (1984)
Contesto: Our ability to destroy ourselves is the mirror image of our ability to save ourselves, and what is lacking is the clear vision of what should be done... What needs to be done is that fundamental, ontological conceptions of reality need to be redone. We need a new language, and to have a new language we must have a new reality... A new reality will generate a new language, a new language will fix a new reality, and make it part of this reality.
