Hippocrates v Hypocrite  



Terence McKenna is known as the Timothy Leary of the 1990’s . He could just as well have been likened to Carlos Castaneda or any other Western intellectual who refused to accept the strictly limited paradigm purveyed by Western science.

Like Leary McKenna advocated for experimenting with psychedelics as a means of connecting with a greater reality. McKenna also put forward the idea that psychedelics were "doorways into the Gaian mind", suggesting that "the planet has a kind of intelligence, it can actually open a channel of communication with an individual human being" and that the psychedelic plants were the facilitators of this communication. See https://web.archive.org/web/19990208211830/http://deoxy.org/gaia/index_gm.htm


In a talk entitled ‘Terence McKenna - Decondition Yourself From the Lie of History’ published on you tube McKenna says Biology is a ‘novelty conserving engine’, by which he meant the progress of evolution is one of increasing complexification, commencing with simple molecules up to and including the greatest scientific and creative human beings, new ideas, new possibilities being built one upon the other. Biology accrues by incremental stages. This is another way of expressing Ken Wilber’s notion of Transcend and Include.

This is what biology does. In the growth stage it is always looking for ways in which to build increasingly complex structures starting from very simple beginnings and gradually adding and transcending what has gone before but while developing, never discarding, always adding and developing, always assimilating. This is what happens with each individual organism; this is what happens with each race; this is what happens with each culture. If there is a single Law of Life this is it.

In order for the organism, the race, the culture to survive it must maintain a degree of equilibrium. Once that equilibrium is distorted degeneration commences which is merely a process of returning to the drawing board to start all over again....

This is Natural Law. Until we learn to work with it we will remain locked in Nietzsche’s Eternal Recurrence destined to make the same mistakes over and over.

Throughout Nature we see this same process. Simple molecules develop into complex molecules which develop into complex polymers which evolve into the DNA molecule which produces a cell out of which is formed simple unicellular creatures out of which develop all the infinite variety of the animal kingdom , increasing complexification of type and model until we arrive at the animal that is Man.

Thus for McKenna biology reaches its acme in the human. And McKenna reckoned with this acme it transitions into something else something that is strictly speaking not biological – what Teilhard de Chardin called the noosphere signifying the world of the mind which cannot be located in space ,  what we call consciousness.

According to McKenna it is at this level of biology that we start to witness epigenetic changes - that is changes that occur not simply as a result of the vertical transfer of genes but also the horizontal transfer through environmental influences. McKenna describes these as ‘taking place in syntactical structures that are linguistically based’.

Human beings have probably been using language with considerable facility for 50,000 years. In our own time we have created ever more elaborate languages and technologies for transforming stories and retrieving language. McKenna reckons we are on the brink of being able to give every single human being on the planet the complete cultural inventory – the complete data base of the human experience on this planet. That’s what data highways and networks are all about. Each successive stage proceeds quicker than the stage that preceded it

McKenna concludes ‘The great puzzle in this biological story is the suddenness of our emergence. This is the main embarrassment to the theory of evolution. We have taken too much responsibility. We are not climbing a staircase. We are being pulled from the future towards an invisible goal’

‘In a more radical version of biophysicist Francis Crick's hypothesis of directed panspermia, McKenna speculated on the idea that psilocybin mushrooms may be a species of high intelligence, which may have arrived on this planet as spores migrating through space and which are attempting to establish a symbiotic relationship with human beings. He postulated that "intelligence, not life, but intelligence may have come here [to Earth] in this spore-bearing life form". He said, "I think that theory will probably be vindicated. I think in a hundred years if people do biology they will think it quite silly that people once thought that spores could not be blown from one star system to another by cosmic radiation pressure," and also believed that "few people are in a position to judge its extraterrestrial potential, because few people in the orthodox sciences have ever experienced the full spectrum of psychedelic effects that are unleashed." See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terence_McKenna

Now this is not at all as outlandish as may at first appear. A biologist Merlin Sheldrake has just published a fascinating book called Entangled Life that explores the extraordinary intelligence and interconnectedness that is the hallmark of all fungal life.

Here’s the publisher’s blurb for his book:

‘When we think of fungi, we likely think of mushrooms. But mushrooms are only fruiting bodies, analogous to apples on a tree. Most fungi live out of sight, yet make up a massively diverse kingdom of organisms that supports and sustains nearly all living systems. Fungi provide a key to understanding the planet on which we live, and the ways we think, feel, and behave.

In Entangled Life, the brilliant young biologist Merlin Sheldrake shows us the world from a fungal point of view, providing an exhilarating change of perspective. Sheldrake’s vivid exploration takes us from yeast to psychedelics, to the fungi that range for miles underground and are the largest organisms on the planet, to those that link plants together in complex networks known as the “Wood Wide Web,”  to those that infiltrate and manipulate insect bodies with devastating precision.’

THE BOTTOM LINE is that any life, including human life, is inconceivable without fungi. Our bodies are full of fungi, which can become a problem if the ph level of the body is disrupted but otherwise are supplying a critical role in maintaining our metabolic balance. Fungi are of course microbial. All life is microbial. Human beings are microbial. Microbes are the energy of life. If we would learn to work with the microbes rather than concentrate all our energies on exterminating them we could build a wonderful future for ourselves. The technology is already there to do it.

Michael Smith a bio physicist developed an extraordinary method of energy production entirely based on working with algae. Smith, a physicist, designed a system to take waste products and turn them into a high nitrogen soil amendments while producing energy. The process he created, which he calls Algae Aqua Culture Technology (AACT) has inputs and outputs interweaving in a closed loop system. In 2011 he developed the first commercial-scale Green Power House at the F.H. Stoltze Land and Lumber Co. near Columbia Falls, Montana.

The Organic Carbon Engine (OCE) takes waste wood from the wood mill and uses a gasification process to create biochar, a bio-oil, carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide to fuel algae growth, and thermal heat to keep other components of the system at desired temperatures.

Smith explained to journalist   Joan Melcher  “The OCE does pyrolysis [decomposition brought about by high temperatures], but it is our proprietary version of a gasifier, since it requires balancing the CO2 and heat with the algal production and the energy needed to accelerate the conversion of algae in our anaerobic bioreactors (ABRs),”

See https://www.biocycle.net/greenhouse-packs-a-power-punch

This is precisely the sort of technology that we need to be developing. And it is based not on demonizing carbon but using it in the same way that Nature uses it – to regenerate and create new energy.


McKenna was not alone in believing humanity emerged suddenly in the evolution of the planet. Gregg Braden and many alternative researchers have expressed the notion that somewhere in our prehistory about 200,000 years ago there was a major change in the genetic makeup of the human species. Something changed. See:



And indeed it would seem Braden has taken on from McKenna in many particulars. Braden takes McKenna’s notion of syntactical structures one step further with his concept of the God code, the notion that the name of God YHWA is encoded in our genes – a notion that gives a whole new meaning to the Biblical statement ‘In the Beginning was the Word’, that God left an imprint, a signature in our genes that identifies us as belonging to Him.


See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orF6aPI0J24

It’ll be seen from the video that Braden has a precise formulation that derives from the science of gematria which associates all letters of the alphabet with specific numerical values. There is a clear relationship between gematria and geometry, between words and the mathematics of the universe we inhabit.


If this seems too fantastical we should remember the work of Gariaev and his Russian colleagues who have proved scientifically much that McKenna speculated on for instance that our genes do indeed exhibit syntactical structures and can be transcribed and re written in the same way as we can transcribe and re write language.

McKenna enunciates the same vision that has obsessed all that see humankind as the evolutionary spearhead - the likes of Julian Huxley who founded UNESCO and was deeply implicated in the whole globalist agenda. His conclusion that we will soon be able to download ‘the complete cultural inventory – the complete data base of the human experience on this planet’ is the very essence of the transhumanist agenda that sees us all being linked up to the Internet of Things and the Internet of Bodies.

Unfortunately for all that McKenna was a visionary in many ways he makes the same crucial error that has beleaguered any true progress in the human race’s attempts to flourish on this planet, namely the dualistic assumption and absolute distinction between the physical and the spiritual that underpins his thinking.

One cannot blame McKenna. It is the same error that has been made by countless mystics and savants down the ages. It comes from what I would call God intoxication. Having discovered that there is so much more to the universe than is immediately apparent the conviction develops that the only thing needful is to spread the Word and waken humanity to the call of the Other World – the greater possibility, the life of the mind and of the spirit

In the case of Terence McKenna this God intoxication unquestionably came from the fact he spent most of his adult life on psychedelics and thus was aware that reality was a great deal stranger than any of us can truly appreciate. Like the shamans in primitive tribes he found himself inhabiting a spiritual world that appears to totally contradict and obviate our normal five sense world. The corollary of this inhabiting another world is to make a strict bifurcation between this world - the world that most of us inhabit  - and the spirit world, forgetting of course that his experiences of the spirit world were all conducted from within the matrix of a flesh and blood body, albeit a body that was being transmuted through the LSD, Ayahuasca and whatever other psychedelics he ingested.

The Spiritualist perspective is perhaps the most egregious by-product of the dualism that pertains throughout Western philosophical thinking. It was for this reason that Wilhelm Reich deplored any notion that he was a mystic, for he could see that this bifurcation between the physical and the spiritual or the material and the mystical was at the very core of the failure of Western medicine to make any meaningful headway with its biggest challenges

Reich was wholly taken up with his concept of orgone energy, a universal energy that permeates the entire universe and that is responsible for all life. This notion of a universal energy is anathema to the scientific orthodoxy because it cannot be controlled bottled and retailed. However it is my belief that Reich was far closer to the truth of how biology works than the powers that be that persecuted him would ever want to admit. Principally his researches corroborated something that had long been researched and suspected, namely that all life involves some sort of electrical field and when we suffer ill health it is because this field becomes contaminated or distorted.

What the work of the Russians like Peter Gariaev has concluded is that DNA, is more like an antenna then an “absolute” blueprint for everything like a lot of people think.

Best-selling author Freddy Silva has described DNA like this:

‘DNA is reliant on electromagnetic force for information.  As the frequency of solar energy rises above the horizon it imprints itself in all living organisms. DNA depends on outside information for its development; in other words, it needs information sent to Earth in electromagnetic waves of light and acoustic waves of sound.’

The chief realisation that emerges from this is that the far from being the be all and end all of the biological organism the genes of which we are constructed act as antennae , responding to frequencies in the environment. This being the case everything in the way we live and where we live impacts upon the receptivity of the antennae. Once the body dies the antennae cease to function and we can no longer fulfil our function as antennae to the rest of the universe.

When we review the biology of Beauchamp, Enderlein, Naessens et al we can see that nothing ever dies, everything is recycled. But this particular point of attention or receiver station that is me ceases to function and exist in this form as it formerly did.

The mystics and savants like to make out that we leave our bodies and continue in another dimension. They may be right. But we cannot know this fact. What we do know beyond any shadow of a doubt is that what we know as consciousness has grown with us and is inextricably entwined with the fact of our embodiment.

If mind is contained in every cell of our bodies then mind never dies but when the body dies, when this particular conglomeration of atoms dissipates so does this particular mode of being and expressing. The bottom line is we cannot discount the body. We cannot separate our mystical experiences out from our physical experience. Which is why tinkering with the genetics of the body is highly dangerous.

When McKenna infers that the human represents a departure from the biological and envisages a day when we will all be in receipt of vast downloads of data from the Cloud he is articulating a utopian vision which can never have any basis in reality.

What the work of Gariaev proves is that mind cannot be separated from our biology, and our biology – the matter that makes us – cannot be separated from mind. His assertion that the language of genes follows the same laws as human languages would seem to indicate that mind and language, syntactical structures are encoded in the cells of our bodies.

This corroborates Chomsky’s notion of syntactical structures being embedded in our genes.

It also suggests that the stuff of life not just human life – all life from the simplest unicellular animals which we could think of as being the vowels, the essential prerequisite for all language and all human communication, to the most complex human being – all emerge from basic syntactical structures.

‘In the Beginning was the Word’ is not just a metaphor but a statement of literal truth. The word or the idea is the precursor to every living thing.

The fact that we articulate complex thoughts with complex syntactical structures is only reflecting the fundamental structure underpinning all life, all biology. The two are inseparable.

This a very difficult concept to get our heads around. We think that language is something we acquire, something we are given by our upbringing. It never occurs to us that actually it is something we already have.

But this was the essence of Chomsky’s researches – the notion that it matters not what language you speak the structure or geometry of all languages is fundamentally the same and is encoded within the human genome. Grammar and meaning are two separate things. The rules of grammar would appear to be embedded within us and apply to all languages; which is why it doesn’t matter if an Arabian baby grows up in an English home or an Indian baby in a Chinese home.

Because all languages are in reality but one language; all have verbs nouns prepositions etc, all have a common genetic origin, all have the same syntactical structures.

All language takes shape according to the field in which it is required – which is no different from saying according to the environment in which it is to be employed.

Environment and the field are one and the same thing. And this recognition is the origin of epigenetics; the recognition that genes do not just communicate vertically as orthodox genetics would like to pretend but horizontally and every other which way you care to think of.

Genes are like templates. They have an infinite possible range of possible modes of expression. Thus to say because you have a particular gene you are likely to develop a particular disease is idiotic. In order for that gene to be activated the environment will have to become conducive. And the environment includes EVERYTHING about how you lead your life – what you eat, what you think, where you live who you live with, how you feel about yourself, how you feel about your life.

In the same way in language we have an infinite number of possibilities of expressing an infinite number of meanings. And this is the reality of the genome of which we are constructed. We have each and every one of us an infinite number of possibilities of how we may express ourselves or for that matter how we may be expressed.

This is the true significance of Gariaev’s assertion that the gene pool is structured in the same way as language is structured. In an interview on Awake and Empowered Radion Gariaev made the point that changing a particular gene through current techniques of gene editing and gene splicing you change the entire characteristic of the whole, just as if you were to change a single word in a book

For instance if you were to take the word Punishment in Dostoioevsk’s Crime and Punishment and change it to ‘Reward’ the entire narrative would be turned on its head – and in fact made meaningless.

This is what is happening every time a gene is spliced from an organic organism. Gariaev was consequently vehemently opposed to the practice of gene editing whether in food or human. Gariaev in this same interview does not pull his punches. He says if this practice continues it will lead to catastrophe. And this is particularly easy to see how this could be no mere hyperbole with the roll out of the mRNA vaccine which aims to do precisely this to the human genome, i.e. splice us up!





In the sequel to their bestselling book Morning of the Magicians ‚Eternal man the Franco Russian combination of Pauwels and Bergier have a fascinating chapter entitled The Hundredth Name of the Lord in which we find this:

‘Among the so called primitive peoples, language is a substance and material power; it is not understood as an abstraction, but as an element of the body and of nature. Just as mind and matter, language and reality, the signified and the signifying interpenetrate in the unity of the inner and outer worlds, most magical systems are based on an interpretation of the word as an effective acting power......Our civilization has established a dichotomy between mind and matter, between language and reality. This dualistic view of life makes us consider language as a separate function and linguistics as a science on its own....’

It would seem that primitive peoples were far close to the truth of the matter concerning language that we are today. If words have real power then you will take trouble as to which ones you use; you will care how you express yourself; you will not use words lightly.

The results of doing so can be seen in the world around us. Can be seen in the mendacity of corporations and government, can be seen in the phenomenal success of propaganda campaigns can be be seen in the endless sophistries being published daily in academia.

Because we have come to use language as principally a means of obfuscating of concealing the truth from ourselves and from our target audiences/populations/. We use words to be clever and witty. We use words to impress. But how rarely do we use words to convey the truth?

In all of this we only damage ourselves.

The problem is we associate language with the mental, purely as a derivation of our capacity to think. Thinking as we conceptualise it without language is literally unthinkable. We would just be sensory machines responding to the environment no different from all the animals we consider so far below us. What we fail to appreciate is that the capacity for language is an intrinsic part of us, a part of us that has grown and evolved with us. And in our capacity to articulate we give form to the DNA that made us in the same way as when we procreate we perpetuate the DNA that we were given at birth.

We cannot separate procreation from creation. Each one of our thoughts is a child of our intelligence or consciousness, and as such as much a child of our being as is our physical children.

Thinking is a biological activity. When I am sitting here writing these words I am not just using my intellect I am using the whole of what I am and what I have become in order to express these intuitions I may have. Cutting and splicing is not an option. I accept the flow of words as they come as a consequence of all that I have been thinking about and experiencing over 59 years of living my life.

In my life I have been required to write books and articles with specific intent – books that collate specific information about a specific subject (the operas of Wagner or the operas of Verdi) reviews of books, reviews of concerts. I have also been required to provide minutes of meetings and annual reports for organisations I have been involved in; and in all these activities I have used language purely as a tool to communicate meanings that I have wanted, or been required, to communicate. And I have always taken great care about how I have expressed myself in order to convey the precise meaning of what I have wanted to say at the time. And this is because at some level I have always been aware of the immense power that words have, that how I put them together will dictate quite precisely the meaning or lack of meaning that I want to convey.

But I have also often been aware of a degree of subterfuge in the choice of words that I have made how often is it the case that what is not said is more eloquent than what has been said. I am no longer willing to use language in this way; because it has come home to me that it’s this abuse of language that is leading the human race to perdition. Above all it is an abuse of what we are. It is taking our capacity for manipulating language to achieve specific ends that has held us away from what we are

This is what Neville Goddard intuited when he emphasise that all we have to say is I AM. That is the only meaningful statement we can make – in the same way that the cat may miaow the dog may bark or teh cow may Moo.

For which reason I do not write for any particular audience for a publisher or for anybody or anything other than myself – because I realise now this the only way to write meaningfully. Anything else is an abuse of language.


I look at my children and I know that they are a reflection of all that I am and all that my wife is, and in addition to that they represent a something that is altogether new. Something that neither I nor my wife could have predicted. And how do we know them – how do we recognise them? Not just from the way they look but the way they express themselves the words that come out of their mouths the sounds that they make which is all an integral part of the beings that they are

I do not separate them out into constituent parts. I do not say this is the girl that I made with her mother. I say this is the miracle of life that has found a new expression and a new way of being a new way of being in the Word

For this is what we are - Being in the Word

We do not realise the extent to which we are made and exist solely through the words that we entertain the words that we allow to travel through our consciousness.

Every thought that we have is a coming together of one or more of those words to make what we call an idea. And these ideas emerge from within us and travel with us. And all external impositions create new words or combinations of words to make new ideas. They change the way we feel and consequently they change the words that erupt into our consciousness to express the way that we feel. The feeling precedes the articulation. This means that our interpretation of the world is not limited to the words that come out of our mouths but is predicated on the way in which our experience of life makes us feel. The feeling prompts the words that swirl through our minute to minute consciousness.

But this is not to say the feeling creates the words. The words are already there waiting to give form to the feelings that we experience which, if not articulated, will remain forever hidden. And this is why we are born with this innate aptitude for language. Chomsky’s famous sentence ‘Colourless green ideas sleep furiously’, may be nonsensical (although no more nonsensical than one might find in a surrealist poem of Breton or Dali) but the syntax is in itself meaningful. It communicates an idea or a notion – however absurd. And that is because the syntax is ingrained in each of us and is recognisable to each of us


Bronislaw Malinowski observed there is not only a relationship between language and the cultural conditions under which it was created, but also, in the case of magic , where the word may be enunciated there is a relationship between the word, the breath, the tone the mental attitude, the moment the place the space and the  receptivity of the audience. And Pawels and Bergier make the essential point that ‘we know very little about the ‘power of sound’ that was known to primitive cultures

In other words language before the invention of printing was always a sounding and a vibration, something I have discussed at length in my COLIN WILSON BOOK)


Gariaev describes each individual molecule of DNA as a text. And he is at pains to emphasise that this is not a metaphor. This is the reality of the situation. Each molecule of DNA is a text – a real text. Not symbolic. It is actually readable. And if it is readable then it can be read.

His chief realisation was that the genetic apparatus of each one of us has its own consciousness and thinking. By reading a person’s genetic code we can understand something about that person.

"A fascinating book, demonstrating new principles of genome operation. The application of these principles will have world changing consequences."


Peter Gariaev is a Russian scientist, pioneering researcher and leading expert in the field of Wave Genetics. In his book "Quantum Consciousness of the Linguistic-Wave Genome", Peter Gariaev outlines and explains the flaws in the current Genetic Code Model. Peter Gariaev explains why the translational machinery must operate with quasi-intellect and that amino acid selection is contextual and linguistic, based on whole mRNA scanning, and not verbatim codon by codon dogmatic mechanical selection.


Peter Gariaev, elaborates on his own research and critically analyses other's research, he lays the foundations of a new field of science – the study and application of the quantum and electromagnetic nature of the genome, as a holistic continuum, facilitating instantaneous metabolic control throughout an organism. The newly discovered principles outlined in this book pave the way for far reaching world changing technologies in medicine, agriculture, computing, and communications. This includes what humanity has long dreamed about: distant and non-operative healing, organ regeneration, significant extension of human lifespan, and quantum computing, to name a few.

“In this monograph P.P. Gariaev lays the foundations for linguistic genetics.<>.


DNA, RNA and proteins represent texts, not in a metaphorical sense (as it was essentially postulated earlier) but texts in a real sense.<>


The genome on the level of synthesis and application of DNA-RNA-protein texts, is actually a quantum biocomputer. This idea cardinally changes our understanding of protein functions, especially of the cerebral cortex proteins as correlates of consciousness and intellect."
