Terence McKenna – The Price Of Miracles

“Somehow the price of being able to work the miracle was literally loss of soul, by virtue of having to opt into the metaphor that nature herself had no soul. In other words, it’s like modern man has made the journey into the realm of the Golem, in order to be in the realm of the Golem you must shed your own soul and leave it behind you. Well, this is the cultural situation that we inherit. Jean-Paul Sartre in his major opus “Being and Nothingness” which sort of summed up 20th century philosophy said “Nature is mute.” That is the existential situation. Well, to me this is like an apotheosis of wrongheadedness. Nature is not mute, it must be that man is deaf.”
