Terence Kemp McKenna was an author, lecturer, philosopher, and shamanic explorer of the realm of psychedelic states. He spoke and wrote about a variety of subjects, including metaphysics, alchemy, language, culture, technology, and the theoretical origins of human consciousness. He has been described by some as being “so far out, nobody knows what he’s talking about”, and by others as “the most innovative thinker of our times”.
To shake us out of our perceptual torpor, McKenna played the holy fool, the crazy wisdom sage. He pushed our faces in the most exotic, lurid inventions of modern science and technology. What elevated him above most other prophets was that he delivered his prophesies with a wink, an implicit acknowledgement that ultimately reality is stranger than we CAN suppose.
“What I’m trying to say is that there is really no separation.
If you believe in the power of separation, then you are denying your own divinity, then you are denying the complete connection to your own source, which is always there with you.
But you must know that whatever you are feeling when you are hugging someone, loving someone or even when you are enjoying good food, it isn’t a feeling coming from the form; it is a feeling that is coming from you.”
– Ekara, Mastering the Grand Illusions, Part 5
There is nothing real about this dualistic reality as we know it. Rather, it is a virtual, multilayered hologram built up of vibrations and frequencies.
Is reality real? What if you woke up one day and realized that what you thought was reality is really a simulation and that this simulation is being generated by a system that you can contact with your mind?
Are we living in a virtual reality? Is the universe emerging from an information processing system? And if so, could we ever tell? Is it possible to ‘hack’ the system and change reality?
This fascinating documentary offers you a journey through all the points of view that are presented in this article. It will also provide you with a deeper understanding of the history behind the scientific principles that eventually justify the claim that we might just live in a holographic universe and that matter is not what we once thought it to be after all.
I came across this short story by Andy Weir on the Internet today; one of my dear soul friends had shared it after she had her mind blown when reading it. As you’ll see, it’s only a tiny story, but it’s meaning is profound.
At the very least, it will make you think about life in a magical kind of way that may never really leave you again. After all, as you’ll see when you’ve read The Story of the Egg, it’s a beautiful way to look at life and everyone you meet within it.
With no further ado, here is The Story of the Egg:
