The following dream about 2012 was reported to me by a young woman who originally contacted me because of her interest in androgyny. She had recorded the dream in her journal a few months before becoming acquainted with my work.
A Mutant Convergence – How John Major Jenkins, Jonathan Zap and Terence McKenna met during a Weekend of High Strangeness in 1996
In the Spring of 2006, John Major Jenkins and Jonathan Zap were reminded that it had been exactly ten years since they had met through the late visionary genius Terence McKenna during a long, strange weekend in 1996. Both still felt haunted by Terence’s untimely passing, and thought about writing a book about him and how his work related to and influenced theirs, a kind of trialogue with the dead. Then they tentatively decided the book would focus on 2012 and the working title became: “Dialogues at the Edge of 2012 ----Journeying toward the Event Horizon amidst the New Age Carnival and Fundamentalist Doom Sayers.” Jonathan wanted the title to be “Carnival 2012” and aimed to expose all the projections and unworthy intentions swirling around this date. But man proposes, and the muse disposes. What ended up happening is that they each wrote about this long, strange weekend which culminated in an all night tape-recorded conversation in Jonathan’s camper. During the camper conversation they each introduced the strange convergence of elements that became the call to adventure leading them into mutant pathways and the weekend of convergence. And then, about a third of the way into transcription of the camper conversation, the muse suddenly diverted both of them into other projects, and the account of the weekend lay neglected, a curio made of zeros and ones lying on dusty shelves in various hard drives. Jonathan (who wrote this little introduction) rediscovered it in 2008, languishing within the narrow confines of an old thumb drive, and decided it was time to release it into the wild.Read More »

This paper, written when I was just twenty years old, contains many of the key insights I have been working on ever since. Here is where I first discovered what I have since called the “singularity archetype,” and first analyzed what it means as an evolutionary template for the human species. Introduced in this paper, is the concept of “Homo gestalt,” a more telepathically networked species employing a more visual form of communication. The singularity archetype is illustrated mostly through examples from science fiction which will make for entertaining reading regardless of what you may think of the conclusions. Archetypes of a New Evolution was, for me at least, a voyage of discovery into the collective unconscious of the species, an exploration of emergent forms in the collective unconscious of the species which may well be the keys to our present and future destiniesRead More »
