Listen in order, Safe with most Medications.
In case of bad trips, ensuranse is NOT provided.
In case of emergency, sit on a chair with your palms facing down on your lap, feel your feet sink into the ground forming roots, and your head mixing with the sky, return to the source.

:eusa_snoo Who are you, the copyright police?

Thanks for sharing the link Xerces. I'm not the biggest fan of Leary but he is fun to listen to - think I might try it out on a couple grams. :)

Are you ready? Then take this chalice.

So yeah I see lots of people tuning in and turning on, but who among you have dropped out? Not in a pure sense(to me purity is the filthiest of human pursuits) , but in any sense...

What does dropping out mean to people and in what sense have you done that?

What do you think Leary meant by it when <i>he</i> said it?

theres a good chance he ment absolutely nothing deep at all.. the phrase tune on, tune in and drop out was made to be a catchy phrase to go along with what he was doing at the time
came out of a speech he said in 1966 and was used as his banner

makes sense for anyone taking psycs tbh

not an in depth and well thought out phrase, relates alot tho :)

I think its one of those multi-applicable sentences. Turn On, Tune In, and Drop out.. deep... (lol)

Turn on your sub-conciousness, Tune in to the universe beat, Drop out from the loop..

no one man ever did more damage
to our counter-culture
than this egomaniac leary.
he is direct cause LSD was banned.
may he burn in hell if there is one.

"Turn on, tune in, drop out" is a counterculture phrase coined by Timothy Leary in the 1960s. It is an excerpt from a prepared speech he delivered at the opening of a press conference in New York City in September 1966. This phrase urged people to initiate cultural changes through the use of psychedelics and by detaching themselves from the existing conventions and hierarchies in society. The phrase was derided by conservative critics.
The phrase is derived from this part of Leary's speech: "Like every great religion of the past we seek to find the divinity within and to express this revelation in a life of glorification and the worship of God. These ancient goals we define in the metaphor of the present — turn on, tune in, drop out."
Leary later explained in his 1983 autobiography Flashbacks: "'Turn on' meant go within to activate your neural and genetic equipment. Become sensitive to the many and various levels of consciousness and the specific triggers that engage them. Drugs were one way to accomplish this end. 'Tune in' meant interact harmoniously with the world around you - externalize, materialize, express your new internal perspectives. Drop out suggested an elective, selective, graceful process of detachment from involuntary or unconscious commitments. 'Drop Out' meant self-reliance, a discovery of one's singularity, a commitment to mobility, choice, and change. Unhappily my explanations of this sequence of personal development were often misinterpreted to mean 'Get stoned and abandon all constructive activity.'"


A common misunderstanding of the phrase, by people not familiar with the context in which it was first said, is that 'turn on, tune in, drop out' refers to 'turn on the radio/television, tune it in, and drop out of your job/society/school', i.e. become a 'waster', a slacker.

I appreciate your input on Leary, Hippie3. The egomania thing really sucked, and like you said, fucked it up for all the rest of us. because I still hold dear his work at harvard, especially giving mushrooms to the inmates, and the afteraffects they produced, I can't say it's all his fault!

The message I have gotten from mushrooms the most is to drop out of society, but rather than be a slacker, ascetic, or cavedweller, to be a part of those small, loving groups pushing evolution slowly and silently that Leary was so fond of...

the man had a doctorate in psychology,
it's hard to believe that he honestly
saw nothing wrong with
dosing immature minds
with such reckless abandon.
i think he was a media whore,
a one-man show,
a cult of personality
built to glorify himself
as he climbed up high
on the wreckage he left behind.

I wish someone with some restraint would have tied his ass down to a chair.

How many melting (haha!)social mores can society deal with until they fight back?

Dose parties ---> Okay, what?

Dose and sex parties ---> Crazy Heathens!

Dose and sex and underage parties ----> Off with their heads!

Too far, too fast... too much, now dust

Leary did become an out of control person but let's face it - what was happening in this country was out of control... a man of the times. It was a toss up between Leary and Charlie that set the man against cid in full force.
