Terence McKenna - The Gnostic Astronaut

Quote:Recorded in June of 1984 at Shared Visions in Berkeley, CA, this is not my other video on Gnosticism. I could not find this lecture anywhere on the internet and is another excellent audio from the Noffke collection, and one of my favorite McKenna lectures of all time.This lecture is composed of three tapes that have been digitized, but unfortunately the second tape was damaged. Because it was inaudible, I spent hours working on the audio trying to restore what I can so Terence's voice could be understood. This comes during the section in which Terence is talking about the Mandaeans and the only thing I think will be noticed is a fluctuation in the speed of his voice.
