Timothy Leary video archive - mega-pack

Timothy Francis Leary (October 22, 1920 – May 31, 1996) was an American psychologist and writer, known for his advocacy of psychedelic drugs. During a time when drugs such as LSD and psilocybin were legal, Leary conducted experiments at Harvard University under the Harvard Psilocybin Project, resulting in the Concord Prison Experiment and the Marsh Chapel Experiment. Both studies produced useful data, but Leary and his associate Richard Alpert were fired from the university because of the public controversy surrounding their research.

Leary believed LSD showed therapeutic potential for use in psychiatry. He popularized catchphrases that promoted his philosophy such as "turn on, tune in, drop out" (a phrase given to Leary by Marshall McLuhan); "set and setting"; and "think for yourself and question authority". He also wrote and spoke frequently about transhumanist concepts involving space migration, intelligence increase and life extension (SMI2LE), and developed the eight-circuit model of consciousness in his book Exo-Psychology (1977).

During the 1960s and 1970s, he was arrested often enough to see the inside of 29 different prisons worldwide. President Richard Nixon once described Leary as "the most dangerous man in America".

Leary: "Life on the Planet Earth, through the instrumentality of the human nervous system, has begun to migrate from the Womb Planet, to escape from gene pools, to establish colonies in high orbit, from whence it can more accessibly contact and communicate with Life in the Galaxy. Rocket-ships have attained the escape velocity necessary to ascend beyond the gravitational pull of the womb-planet. Radio-telescope "dishes" now look out to the stars, ready to receive electro-magnetic messages from intelligent neighbors. Electronic signals are now transmitting through interstellar space the message of human readiness to ex-change and comm-unicate. The suspicion grows that we, who are about to leave this small satellite of a peripheral star, are neither alone nor isolated."

comment: I went through 12 GB of video material with Leary and extracted the best out of it. Timothy Leary in Folsom Prison (1973) is particularly interesting. Leary may well have been the star-seed avant-garde. Having to express himself between sinister beings such as Richard Nixon, G. Gordon Liddy and Spiro Agnew wasn't easy for him. Leary was sentenced to 30 years in prison for one joint! - He got out early though.
