Join Evolver Boston and Handcranked Films for a screening of TERENCE McKENNA: ALIENS & ARCHETYPES.
The film is part of the long-running PBS series "Thinking Allowed," hosted by Jeffrey Mishlove, Ph.D. The series provides an open, non-adversarial forum for the exchange of intelligent, alternative ideas, and features a host of interviews with some of the most challenging thinkers of the last decades.
Terence McKenna [masked]) was a prolific writer, philosopher, and ethnobotanist, who advocated paths of shamanism, and the use of plant-based psychedelics as a means of increasing many forms of human awareness.
Terence: “I tend to lean toward the notion that the UFO problem, like many subtle problems, is haunted by our own naivete concerning language. To my mind, if the UFO phenomena is something arising out of the super-ego of the human psychic organization, then we should ask why. What is it doing? [UFOs] are an antidote to the scientific paradigm that has evolved over the past 400 years and which has led us to the brink of global catastrophe.”
This evening screening will feature a pre-screening revue of mind-bending short films, and a post-screening conversation.
