Timothy Leary

Datum narození: 22. říjen 1920
Datum úmrtí: 31. květen 1996

Timothy Francis Leary byl americký psycholog z Harvardovy univerzity, spisovatel, filosof, popularizátor psychedelické drogy LSD, představitel tehdejší kontrakultury. Jeho heslo „zapnout, naladit, vypadnout“ se stalo mottem hippies. Byl napadán konzervativními osobnostmi a americký prezident Richard Nixon ho nazval „nejnebezpečnějším mužem v Americe“. V roce 1970 byl odsouzen na 20 let za držení dvou jointových nedopalků, které - jak tvrdil - mu byly podstrčeny vládními agenty. Posléze za pomoci krajně levicové organizace Weatherman uprchl z vězení a přes Mexiko se dostal do Alžírska.

Timothy Leary se ve svých dílech zabýval mj. mezilidskou komunikací.

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

—  Timothy Leary

Interview by David Sheff in Rolling Stone Twentieth Anniversary Issue (1987)
Kontext: 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)
Kontext: 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
Kontext: 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)
Kontext: 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.
