interest to many scientists

familiar with concept of singularity
 8
late ethnobotantist terrence mckenna

was one such scientist
 10
 
 
singularity is a term
 11
used to describe the inevitable arrival
 12
events unknown but certainly cataclysmic
 13
will occur when exponential
 14
growth of technology reaches
 15
an asymptotic near vertical rate
 16
causing it to appear
 17
growing at a rate infinite
 18
 
 
based on the historical
 19
rate of technological advances
 20
scientists have extrapolated  
 21
singularity should occur sometime

the exponential growth rate

since the beginning of time such as life

shamens who took dimethyltryptamine
 35
said the entities on the other side
 36
are our literal ancestors
 37
 
 
mckenna an expert on psychedelic drugs
 38
believed DMT
 39
a compound found in plants all over
 40
the world is in the human brain
 41
enables one to enter
 42
the fourth spacial dimension for
 43
about ten minutes and converse
 44
with short engaging creatures
 45
four-dimensional autodynamic visual language
 46
and you can see for yourself
 47
 
 
mckenna suggested
 48
• language is much more
 49
powerful than we understand
 50
• language can be used
 51
create material objects
 52
• the consciousness that sets us
 53
apart from animals is the result
 54
mushrooms eaten by our ancestors
 55
• alien abduction experiences
 56
the result of psychedelic drugs
 57
• naturally occurring psychedelic drugs
 58
an integral part of the human experience
 59
• since cutting the psychedelic
 60
drugs out of our culture our society
 61
nearly ruined the earth
 62
• arriving with or as the singularity  
 63
time travel communication with the dead
 64
knowledge of a higher physical dimension
 65
knowledge of the integral nature of psychedelic drugs
 66
which will unite physics and metaphysics
 67
• the inconceivable but monumental event
 68
the singularity which will transform
 69
human experience in ways we are unable
 70
to imagine will be frieghteningly shocking
 71
and possibly painful
 72
• to quickly prepare for the future
 73
people should take larger doses  
 74
naturally occuring psychedelics more often
 75
and discuss the experience
 76
• this is already happening
 77
for example at raves
 78
 
 
no references to trepanation were found

wow gnormal. i hope you aren't taking mckenna's ideas to heart! he was cuckoo. pseudoscientific millenarianism. he thought that psychadelic mushrooms precipitated the advent of proto-human intelligence. still, it's fun to play with - like any religion.
