Thinking or Listening?

I saw this quote by one of my favorite thinkers (...or is it listeners?), Terence McKenna, on Awakening Our Truth.

It refers to to the mystery of consciousness and the inner voice we experience.

Where does this voice come from?...

The McKenna quote is appropriately accompanied by the image of a thinking chimp, being manipulated by an alien entity- with what appears to be The Flower of Life over his third eye. This process of evolving consciousness is mediated by the psylocibin mushroom.


"Half the time you think you're thinking,
you're actually listening."
-Terence McKenna

Terence McKenna is truly one of the greatest listeners of all time. In his book Food of the Gods he proposed that the evolution from Homo erectus to Homo sapiens was induced by eating Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms. Interesting concept. He also supported nature and ecology.
“Nature is not our enemy, to be raped and conquered. Nature is ourselves, to be cherished and explored.”
