Graham Hancock comes across as a modern day Terence McKenna in this banned TED talk. Both have a lot of information on similar subjects, but I find the former to be a bit more palpable. I listed a quick bio on both and I recommend watching some lectures from Terence McKenna on YouTube. You will find McKenna has more breadth to his information and if you can stand his voice, there’s a great deal more to be learned.
Graham Hancock (born 2 August 1950 in Edinburgh, Scotland) is a British writer and journalist. Hancock specialises in unconventional theories involving ancient civilizations, stone monuments or megaliths, altered states of consciousness, ancient myths and astronomical/astrological data from the past. One of the main themes running through many of his books is the possible global connection with a “mother culture” from which he believes all ancient historical civilizations sprang.
Terence Kemp McKenna (November 16, 1946 – April 3, 2000) was an American ethnobotanist, philosopher, psychonaut, researcher, teacher, lecturer, and writer. He was noted for his knowledge, and the ability to articulate his knowledge, of the use of psychedelics, metaphysics, plant-basedentheogens, and subjects ranging from shamanism, language, historical and civilizational timelines, the theoretical origins of human consciousness, and his concept of novelty theory.
