“The truth does not require your participation to exist. Bullshit does”

"The truth does not require your participation to exist. Bullshit does” is a saying that has been printed on several images. The saying has been credited to American ethnobotanist and mystic Terence McKenna, possibly from his 1996 workshop “Countdown to Complexity.”

“‘The Truth does not require your participation to exist.’ Damnit Terence McKenna you da man” was posted on Twitter by Matthew Ryan Herget on May 21, 2018. “And Terence is on his on-form, off topic best! ‘The truth does not require your participation to exist. Bullshit does.’ Great stuff” was posted on Twitter by Ian Winn on June 6, 2018. “The truth does not require your participation to exist. Bullshit does” was posted on Twitter by Terence McKenna on June 3, 2019.


Wikipedia: Terence McKenna
Terence Kemp McKenna (November 16, 1946 – April 3, 2000) was an American ethnobotanist and mystic who advocated for the responsible use of naturally occurring psychedelic plants. He spoke and wrote about a variety of subjects, including psychedelic drugs, plant-based entheogens, shamanism, metaphysics, alchemy, language, philosophy, culture, technology, environmentalism, and the theoretical origins of human consciousness. He was called the “Timothy Leary of the ‘90s”, “one of the leading authorities on the ontological foundations of shamanism”, and the “intellectual voice of rave culture”.

It’s like taking the conference all over again! Sound quality is amazing, despite the original tapes spending 20y baking in my parent’s attic. And Terence is on his on-form, off topic best! “The truth does not require your participation to exist. Bullshit does.” Great stuff.
