A Thinking Allowed program hosted by Jeffrey Mishlove. DVD contains three complete programs: HALLUCINOGENS AND CULTURE: Hallucinogenic substances have been instrumental in the foundation of many aspects of our cultural heritage. In this challenging program, McKenna suggests ways in which hallucinogenic plants have been associated with spiritual traditions in ancient India, in the Amazon and in medieval Europe. TIME AND THE I CHING: Here he examines Carl Jung's notion of synchronicity, or meaningful coincidence, as it applies to the Chinese I Ching. He proposes that the 64 hexagrams actually contain a specific mathematical structure which models both time itself and the human mind. This common structure, he maintains, accounts for the remarkable success of the I Ching in providing guidance into human affairs. THE HUMAN FUTURE: Human survival requires that we become aware of our responsibility for the future. McKenna proposes four key elements of a future mandala: feminism, space exploration, cybernetics and hallucinogens. The late Terence McKenna was co-author of The Invisible Landscape: Mind, Hallucinogens and the I Ching, True Hallucinations and Food of the Gods. He was also founder of Botanical Dimensions, an organization devoted to preserving and cultivating hallucinogenic plants used in shamanistic traditions worldwide. In addition, he developed a computer software program known as Time-Wave Zero.
