Terence McKenna speech given in the open probably at Palenque in Mexico, year unknown. Terence talks about the entities in another dimension and gets simultaneously poignant and inspiring many times throughout the lecture.
""What we are on the brink of learning as a culture is that our terror of death is a misapprehension of how the universe works. I mean, we're like caterpillars, contemplating pupation and saying: My God, nothing could be worse! No longer will I chew on the cabbage leaves, no longer will I spend my time moving around on the underside of foliage, instead something horrible and unimaginable. I don't want to become a chrysalis and lie still, and exhibit no sign of life. And the caterpillar never notices, unless there are shaman caterpillars, that what are these miraculous creatures moving through the air?"
