Visual Kei. Shibuya Kei. With a Ph. In the early part of his career Alpert conducted personality and social psychology research. Timothy Leary received his Ph. Psilocybin is an entheogenic hallucinogen which naturally occurs in certain species of mushrooms; Leary and Alpert sought to document its effects on human consciousness by administering it to volunteer subjects and recording their real-time descriptions of the experience. Editorials printed in the Harvard Crimson accused Alpert and Leary of not merely researching psychotropic drugs but actively promoting their recreational use.
Leary and Alpert insisted on the scientific purpose of their endeavors, and agreed to policies intended to protect their subjects, including a prohibition on participation by undergraduate students. Initially Leary and Alpert only used volunteer if not fully informed graduate students in their research.
The Concord conclusions were contested in a follow-up study on the basis of time differences monitoring the study group vs. The researchers concluded that statistically only a slight improvement could be attributed to psilocybin in contrast to the significant improvement reported by Leary and his colleagues.
Doblin further accused Leary of lacking "a higher standard" or "highest ethical standards in order to regain the trust of regulators". Ralph Metzner rebuked Doblin for these assertions: "In my opinion, the existing accepted standards of honesty and truthfulness are perfectly adequate. We have those standards, not to curry favor with regulators, but because it is the agreement within the scientific community that observations should be reported accurately and completely.
There is no proof in any of this re-analysis that Leary unethically manipulated his data. To satisfy the curiosity of those who were turned away, a black market for psychedelics sprang up near the Harvard campus. Other professors in the Harvard Center for Research in Personality raised concerns about the legitimacy and safety of the experiments. Leary and Alpert also went against policy by giving psychedelics to undergraduate students, and did not select participants through random sampling.
It was also problematic that the researchers sometimes took hallucinogens along with the subjects they were supposed to be studying. These concerns were printed in The Harvard Crimson leading the university to halt the experiments. The Massachusetts Department of Public Health launched an investigation that was later dropped, but the university eventually fired Leary and Alpert. According to Andrew Weil , Leary was fired for missing scheduled lectures, while Alpert was dismissed for allegedly giving psilocybin to an undergraduate in an off-campus apartment.
Leary's psychedelic experimentation attracted the attention of three heirs to the Mellon fortune, siblings Peggy, Billy, and Tommy Hitchcock. In they gave Leary and his associates access to a rambling room mansion on an estate in Millbrook, New York , where they continued their psychedelic sessions. We saw ourselves as anthropologists from the 21st century inhabiting a time module set somewhere in the dark ages of the s.
On this space colony we were attempting to create a new paganism and a new dedication to life as art. Gordon Liddy. Others contest the characterization of Millbrook as a party house. When Ken Kesey 's Merry Pranksters visited the estate, they received a frosty reception. In it, they wrote:. A psychedelic experience is a journey to new realms of consciousness. The scope and content of the experience is limitless, but its characteristic features are the transcendence of verbal concepts, of spacetime dimensions, and of the ego or identity.
Such experiences of enlarged consciousness can occur in a variety of ways: sensory deprivation, yoga exercises, disciplined meditation, religious or aesthetic ecstasies, or spontaneously.
Most recently they have become available to anyone through the ingestion of psychedelic drugs such as LSD, psilocybin , mescaline , DMT , etc. Of course, the drug does not produce the transcendent experience. It merely acts as a chemical key — it opens the mind, frees the nervous system of its ordinary patterns and structures. Both Nena and her brother Bjorn were friends of the Hitchcocks. Actress Uma Thurman , her second child, was born in According to him, a lesbian became heterosexual after using the drug.
By , use of psychedelics by America's youth had reached such proportions that serious concerns about the nature of these drugs and the impact their use was having on American culture were expressed in the national press and halls of government. In response to these concerns, Senator Thomas Dodd of Connecticut convened Senate subcommittee hearings in order to try to better understand the drug-use phenomenon, eventually with the intention of "stamping out" such usage through the criminalizing of these drugs.
Leary was one of several expert witnesses called to testify at these hearings. In his testimony, Leary asserted that "the challenge of the psychedelic chemicals is not just how to control them, but how to use them. Human stupidity and ignorance is the only danger human beings face in this world. A Manual Based on the Tibetan Sand was designated the "alchemist" of the new religion.
During late and early , Leary toured college campuses presenting a multimedia performance entitled "The Death of the Mind", attempting an artistic replication of the LSD experience. He published a pamphlet in called Start Your Own Religion to encourage people to do so. In speaking to the group, Leary coined the famous phrase " Turn on, tune in, drop out.
Then he started going, 'Tune in, turn on, and drop out. Turn On — find a sacrament which returns you to the temple of God, your own body.
Go out of your mind. Get high. Tune In — be reborn. Drop back in to express it. Start a new sequence of behavior that reflects your vision. Repeated FBI raids ended the Millbrook era.
Leary told author and Prankster Paul Krassner regarding a raid by Liddy, "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. I have never had and never will have a gun around. All the guests were on acid.
In the late s and early s, Leary formulated his eight-circuit model of consciousness in collaboration with writer Brian Barritt. The essay "The Seven Tongues of God" claimed that human brains have seven circuits producing seven levels of consciousness. An eighth circuit was added in the pamphlet "Neurologic", written with Joanna Leary while he was in prison. This eighth-circuit idea was not exhaustively formulated until the publication of Exo-Psychology by Leary and Robert Anton Wilson 's Cosmic Trigger in Wilson contributed to the model after befriending Leary in the early s, and used it as a framework for further exposition in his book Prometheus Rising , among other works.
Leary believed that the first four of these circuits "the Larval Circuits" or "Terrestrial Circuits" are naturally accessed by most people at transition points in life such as puberty. The second four circuits "the Stellar Circuits" or "Extra-Terrestrial Circuits" , Leary wrote, were "evolutionary offshoots" of the first four that would be triggered at transition points as humans evolve further.
These circuits, according to Leary, would equip humans to live in space and expand consciousness for further scientific and social progress. Leary suggested that some people might trigger these circuits sooner through meditation , yoga, or psychedelic drugs specific to each circuit. He suggested that the feelings of floating and uninhibited motion sometimes experienced with marijuana demonstrated the purpose of the higher four circuits.
The function of the fifth circuit was to accustom humans to life at a zero gravity environment. In the academic community, many researchers believed that Leary provided little scientific evidence for his claims. Even before he began working on psychedelics he was known as a theoretician rather than a data collector. His most ambitious pre-psychedelic work was Interpersonal Diagnosis Of Personality. The reviewer for The British Medical Journal wrote that Leary created a confusing and overly broad rubric for testing psychiatric conditions.
Penn State psychology researcher Jerome E. Singer reviewed the book and singled out Leary as the worst offender in a work containing "melanges of hucksterism". In place of scientific data about the effects of LSD, Leary used metaphors about "galaxies spinning" faster than the speed of light and a cerebral cortex "turned on to a much higher voltage". Leary's first run-in with the law came on December 23, , when he was arrested for possession of marijuana. They had crossed into Nuevo Laredo , Mexico, in the late afternoon and discovered that they would have to wait until morning for the appropriate visa for an extended stay.
They decided to cross back into Texas to spend the night, and were on the US-Mexico bridge when Rosemary remembered that she had a small amount of marijuana in her possession. It was impossible to throw it out on the bridge, so Susan put it in her underwear. He appealed the case on the basis that the Marihuana Tax Act was unconstitutional, as it required a degree of self-incrimination in blatant violation of the Fifth Amendment. On December 26, , Leary was arrested again in Laguna Beach, California , this time for the possession of two marijuana "roaches".
Leary alleged that they were planted by the arresting officer, but was convicted of the crime. United States , declared the Marihuana Tax Act unconstitutional, and overturned his conviction. On that same day, Leary announced his candidacy for Governor of California against the Republican incumbent, Ronald Reagan. His campaign slogan was "Come together, join the party. On January 21, , Leary received a year sentence for his offense, with a further 10 added later while in custody for a prior arrest in , for a total of 20 years to be served consecutively.
On his arrival in prison, he was given psychological tests used to assign inmates to appropriate work details. Having designed some of these tests himself including the "Leary Interpersonal Behavior Inventory" , Leary answered them in such a way that he seemed to be a very conforming, conventional person with a great interest in forestry and gardening.
In , the couple fled to Switzerland, where they were sheltered and effectively imprisoned by a high-living arms dealer, Michel Hauchard, who claimed he had an "obligation as a gentleman to protect philosophers"; Hauchard intended to broker a surreptitious film deal, and forced Leary to assign his future earnings which Leary eventually won back. Leary and Rosemary separated later that year; she traveled widely, then moved back to the United States where she lived as a fugitive until the s.
They traveled to Vienna , then Beirut , and finally ended up in Kabul , Afghanistan, in ; according to Luc Sante , "Afghanistan had no extradition treaty with the United States, but this stricture did not apply to American airliners.
He testified further that he had a valid passport in Kabul and that it was confiscated while he was in a line at the American Embassy in Kabul a few days prior to the day when he boarded the airplane; after his passport was confiscated, he was taken to "Central Police Headquarters"; he did not attempt to contact the American Embassy; the Kabul police held him in custody and took him to a "police hotel".
The cousin of the King of Afghanistan came to see him and told him that it was a national holiday, that the King and the officials were out of Kabul, and that he the cousin would get a lawyer and see that Leary "had a hearing".
On the morning the airplane left Kabul, officials of Afghanistan told him he was to leave Afghanistan. Leary replied he would not leave without a hearing and until he got his passport back; they said the Americans had his passport, and he was taken to the airplane. Leary mostly directed his own defense strategy, which proved to be unsuccessful, as the jury convicted him after deliberating for less than two hours. In their discussions, Manson was surprised and found it difficult to understand why Leary had given people LSD without trying to control them.
At one point, Manson said to Leary, "They took you off the streets so that I could continue with your work. Leary became an informant for the FBI in order to shorten his prison sentence and he entered the witness protection program upon his release in While in prison, Leary was sued by the parents of Vernon Powell Cox, who had jumped from a third story window of a Berkeley apartment while under the influence of LSD.
Cox had taken the drug after attending a lecture, given by Leary, favoring LSD use. Leary was released from prison on April 21, by Governor Jerry Brown. He moved to Laurel Canyon , where he continued to write books and appear as a lecturer and "stand-up philosopher". He adopted Blum's son Zachary and said he raised him as his own. He also took on several godchildren, including actress Winona Ryder the daughter of his archivist Michael Horowitz and Jeffrey Epstein associate Joi Ito.
Leary developed an improbable partnership with former foe G. Gordon Liddy, the Watergate burglar and conservative radio talk-show host. They toured the lecture circuit in as ex-cons debating a range of issues, including gay rights , abortion , welfare , and the environment. Leary generally espoused left-wing views, while Liddy was right-wing.
The tour generated massive publicity and considerable funds for both. Leary resumed personal appearances and appeared in the documentary Return Engagement which chronicled the tour, and the release of the autobiography Flashbacks. In , he held a fundraiser for Libertarian presidential candidate Ron Paul.
Leary's extensive touring on the lecture circuit ensured him a comfortable lifestyle by the mids. Leary continued to take drugs frequently in private, but stayed away from proselytizing psychedelics. Instead, he preached about space colonization and extension of the human lifespan. Leary's space colonization plan evolved over the years.
Initially, 5, of Earth's most virile and intelligent individuals would be launched on a vessel Starseed 1 equipped with luxurious amenities. Heinlein 's Lazarus Long series. In the s, Leary became fascinated by computers, the internet, and virtual reality. He proclaimed that "the PC is the LSD of the s" and admonished bohemians to "turn on, boot up, jack in".
He befriended a number of notable people in the field, such as Jaron Lanier  and Brenda Laurel , a pioneer in virtual environments and human—computer interaction. With the rise of cyberdelic counter-culture, he served as consultant to Billy Idol in the production of the album Cyberpunk. In , his daughter Susan age 42 was arrested in Los Angeles for shooting her boyfriend in the head as he slept.
She was ruled mentally unfit to stand trial for murder on two occasions. After years of mental instability, she committed suicide in jail by hanging herself with a shoelace. From on, Leary had begun to re-establish his connection to unconventional religious movements with an interest in altered states of consciousness. In , he appeared with friend and book collaborator Robert Anton Wilson in a dialog entitled The Inner Frontier for the Association for Consciousness Exploration , a Cleveland-based group that had been responsible for his first Cleveland appearance in And you can un-subscribe with one click at any time.
