“Language is a psychedelic technology”. 11 years after Terence Mckenna’s death people still walk around in parks, contemplate his mind-blowing ideas and break out in unstoppable raps of inspiration . This techno-psychedelic short film gives new perspectives on McKenna’s ideas on language and the stoned ape theory. Enjoy.

  1. Excellent rant! Personally I think your description of McKenna’s world view is human-centric. I see all of life as a medium of communication which does not depend on the existence of humans to evolve. We are not the only animals even on this earth that have language and the language of words is not the only root of our other forms of communication.
