Terence McKenna, with brother Dennis J. McKenna and author John Major Jenkins, were the prime originators of the Mayan 2012 ethos, and are credited as such on the N.A.S.A. website under the title; "The Great Doomsday Scare" which credits Terence and Dennis's book; "The Invisible Landscape: Mind, Hallucinogens, and the I Ching", with; "at least getting the (astronomical) date right".
A more enlightened and humoristic view has been taken by John Horgan in Scientific American of June 6th, 2012, in an interesting article based on his meeting with Terence McKenna in May 1999.
The Terence McKenna OmniBus 2012, [TMOM2012], is a series of 12 clips released monthly by Headspace Studios through 2012. Each webisode is exactly 12:12:12 minutes in duration and deals with a different subject. The series culminated in December when Terence's ruminations on the 2012 phenomena was broadcast.
TMOM2012 features previously unseen interviews culled from our 'Lost McKenna tapes' archive restored to High Definition with added dimensions of music, sounds, color and special effects to make this series worthy of representing the McKenna mojo for generations to come.
