Timothy Leary

Data de nascimento: 22. Outubro 1920
Data de falecimento: 31. Maio 1996

Timothy Francis Leary, Ph.D. , professor de Harvard, psicólogo, neurocientista, escritor, futurista, ícone maior dos anos 1960, ficou famoso como um proponente dos benefícios terapêuticos e espirituais do LSD. De fato, o Professor Leary defendia os benefícios desta substância psicodélica como o substructio do progresso humano.

Amigo pessoal de John Lennon — a canção "Come Together" dos Beatles é inspirada em Timothy Leary, e, no videoclipe de "Give Peace a Chance", pode-se ver o professor e a sua mulher de toda a vida, Barbara, junto à cama onde John Lennon protagonizou este hino de liberdade. Na letra dessa mesma canção pode-se ouvir, na 3ª estrofe: "Everybody is talking about John and Yoko, Timmy Leary…", tal era a notoriedade deste eminente académico na época.

Timothy Leary foi expulso de Harvard depois de ter promovido uma experiência psicotrópica com uma turma inteira de estudantes de psicologia . Mais tarde, a administração de Nixon fez do Professor Leary um bode expiatório no seu ataque reaccionário e conservador à contracultura que florescia nesse período, enviando-o para a prisão pela sua veemente posição contra a proibição do LSD.

Nos anos 1980, fascinado pelos computadores, Leary dedicou-se a este novo mundo, com imenso sucesso. Criou softwares de design, continuou a escrever livros e a fazer conferências. Embora o seu tópico principal fosse agora a tecnologia, ele ainda era reconhecido como o guru do LSD dos anos 1960. Wikipedia

„O meu conselho para as pessoas atualmente é o seguinte : se você leva o jogo da vida a sério, se você leva o seu sistema nervoso a sério, se você leva os seus órgãos de sentido a sério, se você leva o processo da energia a sério, você tem que se ligar, sintonizar e cair fora.“

—  Timothy Leary

My advice to people in American today is as follows: If you take the game of life seriously, if you take your nervous system seriously, if you take your sense organs seriously, if you take the energy process seriously, you must turn on, tune in, and drop out.

„Turn on, Tune in, Drop out“

—  Timothy Leary

Fonte: Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out

„They've got a brain dressed up with nowhere to go.“

—  Timothy Leary

Interview by David Sheff in Rolling Stone Twentieth Anniversary Issue (1987)
Contexto: We are dealing with the best-educated generation in history. They are a hundred times better educated than their grandparents, and ten times more sophisticated. There has never been such an open-minded group. The problem is that no one is giving them anything fresh. They've got a brain dressed up with nowhere to go.

„Think for yourself and question authority.“

—  Timothy Leary

Timothy Leary's track on Sound Bites from the Counter Culture (1989)

„My advice to myself and to everyone else, particularly young people, is to turn on, tune in and drop out.“

—  Timothy Leary

A Trip with Paul Kassner <!-- Politics of Ecstasy 1999 p. 215 -->
The Politics of Ecstasy (1968)
Contexto: My advice to myself and to everyone else, particularly young people, is to turn on, tune in and drop out. By drop out, I mean to detach yourself from involvement in secular, external social games. But the dropping out has to occur internally before it can occur externally. I'm not telling kids just to quit school; I'm not telling people to quit their jobs. That is an inevitable development of the process of turning on and tuning in.

„You're only as young as the last time you changed your mind.“

—  Timothy Leary

As quoted in Office Yoga : Simple Stretches for Busy People (2000) by Darrin Zeer, p. 52

„Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.“

—  Timothy Leary

As quoted in Third and Possibly the Best 637 Best Things Anybody Ever Said (1987) by Robert Byrne, #40

„To describe externals, you become a scientist. To describe experience, you become an artist.“

—  Timothy Leary

Changing My Mind, Among Others : Lifetime Writings (1982), p. 76; also in Change Your Brain (2000), p. 72
Contexto: To describe externals, you become a scientist. To describe experience, you become an artist. The old distinction between artists and scientists must vanish. Every time we teach a child correct usage of an external symbol, we must spend as much time teaching him how to fission and reassemble external grammar to communicate the internal. The training of artists and creative performers can be a straightforward, almost mechanical process. When you teach someone how to perform creatively (ie, associate dead symbols in new combinations), you expand his potential for experiencing more widely and richly.

„Don't take LSD unless you are very well prepared, unless you are specifically prepared to go out of your mind. Don't take it unless you have someone that's very experienced with you to guide you through it. And don't take it unless you are ready to have your perspective on yourself and your life radically changed“

—  Timothy Leary

CBC Documentary: How To Go Out of Your Mind: The LSD Crisis (1966)
Contexto: We always have urged people: Don't take LSD unless you are very well prepared, unless you are specifically prepared to go out of your mind. Don't take it unless you have someone that's very experienced with you to guide you through it. And don't take it unless you are ready to have your perspective on yourself and your life radically changed, because you're gonna be a different person, and you should be ready to face this possibility.

„When you teach someone how to perform creatively (ie, associate dead symbols in new combinations), you expand his potential for experiencing more widely and richly.“

„While sitting in my prison cell, I was astonished to hear the local rock station play a new song by the Beatles entitled "Come Together." Although the new version was certainly a musical and lyrical improvement on my campaign song, I was a bit miffed that Lennon had passed me over this way.“

—  Timothy Leary, livro Flashbacks

Contexto: While sitting in my prison cell, I was astonished to hear the local rock station play a new song by the Beatles entitled "Come Together." Although the new version was certainly a musical and lyrical improvement on my campaign song, I was a bit miffed that Lennon had passed me over this way. (I must explain that even the most good-natured persons tend to be a bit touchy about social neglect while in prison). When I sent a mild protest to John, he replied with typical Lennon charm and wit: that he was a tailor and I was a customer who had ordered a suit and never returned. So he sold it to someone else.

„He's basically a romantic comedian.“

—  Timothy Leary

Commenting on G. Gordon Liddy‎‎'s 1994 remarks on shooting intruding ATF agents, and a 1966 raid by Liddy in which Leary had been arrested, in "Timothy Leary Revisited" a 1995 interview, in Paul Krassner's Impolite Interviews (1999) by Paul Krassner, p. 304
Contexto: He's basically a romantic comedian. …. He was a government agent entering our bedroom at midnight. We had every right to shoot him. But I've never owned a weapon in my life, and I have no intention of owning a weapon, although I was a master sharpshooter at West Point on both the Garand, the Springfield rifle and the machine-gun. I was a howitzer expert. I know how to operate these lethal gadgets but I have never had and never will have a gun around.
