Publicidade

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.

„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.“

„Each religion has got their own way of making you feel like a victim.“

—  Timothy Leary
Context: Each religion has got their own way of making you feel like a victim. The Christians say "you are a sinner", and you better just zip up your trousers and give the money to the pope and we'll give you a room up in the hotel in the sky. Timothy Leary's Last Trip (1997)

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

—  Timothy Leary
Context: 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. Interview by David Sheff in Rolling Stone Twentieth Anniversary Issue (1987)

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

—  Timothy Leary
The Politics of Ecstasy (1968), Context: 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. A Trip with Paul Kassner <!-- Politics of Ecstasy 1999 p. 215 -->

„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
Flashbacks, An Autobiography (1983), Context: 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. p. 388
