    Guest speaker: QueerNinja

    PROGRAM NOTES:



    Today’s podcast, which is being released on 4, 20, 2020, is dedicated to and in tribute to our dear friend Queerninja, who departed this little planet earlier in the year. The Ninja was one of the early pioneers of podcasting, and he hosted one of the first music podcasts on the Internet. It was called “The Sounds of World Wide Weed”, and today’s podcast features a replay of the final program in that podcast series. To lighten the mood a bit, today’s podcast ends with Ron Shock’s “Best Damn Dope Story Ever.”

    Guest speaker: Terence McKenna

    PROGRAM NOTES:



    [NOTE: All quotations are by Terence McKenna.]

    “A person who does DMT once a year is a fanatically heavy user, I would say.”

    “One way of judging how toxic a drug, or a plant, is is to ask yourself the question ‘How long after I take it do I feel completely normal?’ “

    “You want a surgical strike on the synapses, is what you’re going for, not splattering all kinds of junk all over the place.”

    “Growing the mushroom teaches you cleanliness, punctuality, attention to detail, steadiness, all of these virtues, which are the very virtues you need to travel smoothly in that dimension [on a magic mushroom trip].”

    “Here’s a career for somebody. No hallucinogenic insect has ever been found, and yet there are persistent rumors in different parts of the world of either a butterfly or a beetle that is hallucinogenic.”

    “As to why [psychoactive plants] have this peculiar effect that they do in us, I think that’s because there was, anciently, and over the evolutionary life of human beings, actually a connection between us and nature. And that these drugs are the antenna, the switches that switch us back toward the Logos of the natural world.”

    “This is something people don’t realize, flowering plants are as recent as mammals. If the period of life on Earth is visualized as a yardstick, the period of the flowering plants is the last inch and a half.”

    “[Psychedelics] are the [corrosive] acids of anarchy.”

    Guest speaker: Android Joines

    PROGRAM NOTES:



    This Palenque Norte Lecture was recorded at Burning Man in August 2019.

    “Burning Man is like a handicap Olympics for art. Everybody gets a medal. There’s no bar at all. The bar went away. Anything fits in. And we realize the handicap that all of us have in common is that we have the handicap of our trauma. Because it’s our trauma, I believe, that is one of the unifying factors that brings us out here. Healthy people don’t go out to the middle of the desert, to go do drugs, and get naked with other healthy people.” –Android Jones

    PROGRAM NOTES:



    Date this lecture was recorded: August 2019

    [NOTE: All quotations are by Corey Doctorow.]

    “What like-buttons mainly do is collect data about you.”

    “If you know something about people, you can lie to them better”

    “In a walled-garden that’s what it’s all about. It’s not about spying on you. It’s about locking you in and charging you extra.”

    “Amazon is basically pursuing a strategy to turn themselves into a part of the state, into an arm of law enforcement [by providing doorbell camera footage to the police].”

    “We’ll never be able to make Big Tech behave. The only way to make Big Tech behave is to make Big Tech small.”

    “Tech is the tool we use to fix the other problems.”

    Guest speakers: Eric Cifani and Chris Grasso

    PROGRAM NOTES:



    Date this lecture was recorded: August 2019.

    Today’s podcast features a Palenque Norte Lecture that was presented at Burning Man last August. This presentation was given by long-time friend and supporter of the salon, Eric Cifani. With Eric is Chris Grasso, who also happens to be an attorney. Their presentation brings together the values that shaped shamanism and today’s struggle for the freedom to explore our own consciousness without government interference. And I end the podcast with a few words of my own about the importance of shamanism in today’s technical world.
