Terence McKenna - The Human Imagination

McKenna waxes poetic about the very intimate relationship that humans have with the imagination. He uses the metaphor of birth to describe the consequence of an animal with a direct connection to this source and the ability to order ideas into matter.

Terence McKenna on Language

Then there is the phenomenon of non-ordinary, or what I call visible language and this is very interesting to me. This is where technology, virtual-reality, cybernetics, human-machine interfacing can actually make an impact and explore a frontier. Visual language is a transormation of the physiological impulse towards syntax into a final product, speech, which is not heard with the ears, but beheld with the eyes. It's very interesting that all our metaphors of clarity of speech are visual metaphors. -Terence McKenna
