Las Parabolas: 8 MilliBitcoin, Terence McKenna

Republica De Las Parabolas (Parabolas in Spanish = story/parable) features advocates, story tellers, pundits, colourful personalities, endorsers and pre-imaginers, who are in some way associated with the meme of the crypto parabola, speculation, bold price calls – sometimes literally ‘to the moon.’ The series consists of SIX designs, each with a different hand-drawn portrait, and unique designs.

McKenna is a suprsing choice, as the only figure featured in the series whose lifetime didn’t coincide with the evolution of cryptocurrency. Nevertheless, Terence McKenna wrote and spoke extensively about Human evolution into the 21st century. His major achievement was his TimeWave Zero – a graph that depicted the entirety of Human history as oscillating between forces of ‘chaos’ and ‘novelty’. Peaks and troughs in the graph picked out key moments, such as assinations, Hiroshima, the fall of empires etc. The graph goes to zero and ends on December 21st 2012, aligning with ancient cultures, such as the Mayan calendar. These cultures declared that this date marked a rebirthing of the world – a new world. The implication is that Bitcoin is the monetary bridge onto a new world, and a way of transcending a precarious and usurous debt-based money system, that has been responsible for the chaos of the ‘old world’.

The design features authentic and original banknote design – the centrepiece is the engraved portrait, made of hundreds of lines and dashes, each placed by hand. The design is filled with minute details and patterns, all reinforcing the central concept. The design is signed, and individually serial numbered, in a limited edition of 50 pieces.
