Timothy Leary - Cosmic Baseball AssociationTimothy Leary is one of the founding fathers of the psychedelic revolution. The son of an alcoholic dentist who abandoned the family when Leary was 13, Leary went on to become a cultural icon as recognizable as the Beatles and Andy Warhol. His motto "turn on, tune in, and drop out" became the mantra for a generation. Leary was nearly 40 when he started experimenting with hallucinogens and psychotropics. Soon a new rule would be imposed on the world's youth: "don't trust anyone over 30." Leary, of course, was a spiritual father to this generation. The effects of his own father's abandonment have been reviewed by more than one commentator. In Jay Stevens' analysis of LSD and its influence on American culture, Storming Heaven, he quotes Leary as stating that his pain regarding his father's departure "emerged later during a drug session with Jack Kerouac." Kerouac's psychology was more dominated by his dominating mother then his father. Much of Leary's psychodrama has been fueled by the complex paternal issues. This might explain why Jack and Tim were not the best of friends. While Kerouac eschewed the hippies, Leary embraced them.
The Timothy Leary and Robert Anton Wilson Show"Put it into historical context. The use of sacramental vegetables has gone back, back, back in history to shamans and the Hindu religion and Buddhist religion. They were using soma. It's an ancient human ritual that has usually been practiced in the context of religion or of worship or of tribal coming together. I didn't pioneer anything. The use of psychedelics for spiritual purposes was started in the 50s by Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs." Tim Leary

Personal Computers/Personal FreedomOnce upon a time, knowledge-information was stored in extremely expensive mainframe systems called Illuminated Volumes, usually Bibles, carefully guarded in the palace of the Duke or Bishop and accessible only to security-cleared, socially alienated hackers called Monks. Then in 1456 Johann Gutenberg invented a most important piece of hardware: the movable-type printing press. This knowledge-information processing system could mass-produce inexpensive, portable software readily available for home use. The Personal Book.
