In times of universal deceit, telling
the truth is a revolutionary act.
         - George Orwell


Napoleon once observed that "history" is a set of lies agreed upon. In an era of ubiquitous fake news and information warfare, this has never been more true. The very concept of objective truth in history is fading out of our world. Pure propaganda and outright lies are passing into our history textbooks as unquestioned truth, condemning future generations to false views about historical reality. But the task of sifting through the lies and propaganda is overwhelming, limited by the ambition and time constraints of most observors.

Terence McKenna - Uber-Libertarian of the Human Spirit, Prophet of the Post-Orwellian World

       I've sometimes been asked, "If you could name just one thinker or philosopher who you adhere to and admire the most, who would it be?"  It has taken me decades to explore and identify the answer to that question, but I think I now have an answer: Terence McKenna.
       McKenna died in April, 2000 at the relatively young age of 53.  But before he departed, he left us a treasure trove of books and videos which inspire us to think outside the box on virtually every topic imaginable.  He was a fearless psychonaut, venturing inside his own mind as few others have dared, bringing back tales of discovery virtually unparalleled in their expression and articulation of the sublime.  I encourage you to check out any number of the hundreds of YouTube videos which bare his name, starting with this one - perhaps the best 15-minute summary of what I believe that I have every encountered:
