Podcast 369 – “Timothy & Terence”

Guest speaker: Timothy Leary & Terence McKena

Invitation to the opening of the Timoty Leary Archive at the New York Library. (Held on the second anniversary of the Occupy Movement.) :-)

PROGRAM NOTES:

[NOTE: All quotations are by Terence McKenna.]

“I know that I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for Tim Leary. He was the pathfinder. He cut the way through the woods. He gave us all permission to be very much the people that we are tonight.”

“Alchemy is really the secret tradition of the redemption of spirit from matter.”

“What ‘psychedelic’ means is getting your mind out in front of you, by whatever means necessary, so that you can relate to it as a thing in the world and then work upon it.”

“Mind conjures miracles out of time.”

“You’ve been told from the cradle that the deck was stacked against you, fall of man, original sin, and so forth and so on. It’s bullshit. It’s absolute bullshit.”

Podcast 322 – “The Evolution of Intelligence”

Guest speaker: Timothy Leary

PROGRAM NOTES:

[NOTE: All quotations are by Timothy Leary.]

“In my function as a [college] lecturer, it’s my obligation, it’s my task, it’s my duty to instigate irreverence for authority, questioning of authority.”

“And that’s one of the things that is kind of amazing today, the junk information that we’re being inundated with, the cloud, the atmosphere, the smog of disinformation.”

“Reagan is a certifiable lunatic”

“The first narcotics bust in history is Jehovah busting Adam and Eve for eating of the fruit of the tree of knowledge.”

“We’re getting to one of those moments, one of those great moments in history, when evolution is going to happen.”

“At all costs avoid terminal adulthood.”

“You are as old as the last time you reprogrammed your brain or changed your mind.”

“You’re as old as the people you hang out with.”

“There is no reason why any human being should work. Robots work, humans perform.”

“The sensible thing to do about drugs is this, get yourself a really good dealer.”

Podcast 315 – “In a German Salon” Part 3

Guest speaker: Timothy Leary

PROGRAM NOTES:

[NOTE: All quotations are by Timothy Leary.]

“At every level there are eight stages of intelligence. You have to turn your brain on to the circuits that are used at that level of intelligence. And there are ways to change the human brain to different stages. The things that change your brain are called ‘drugs’.”

“The ketemine experience is very much like the dying experience. It is a hands-on dying experience.”

“If you know how to die, gracefully, and elegantly, and intelligently, why bother with all the foreplay?”

[Speaking to the Baby Boomers] “Your generation is a sinking ship. So the intelligent thing to do is to jump ship.”

“I’m into the absolute navigational fact that you can only go as far into the future as you understand and are really respectful of the past.”

“The key to evolution is the individual, the intelligent individual, the self, finding a self within.”

Guest speaker: Timothy Leary

PROGRAM NOTES:

strong>[NOTE: All quotations are by Timothy Leary.]

“Since World War II, in the Western societies, the generation you belong to is almost a different species.”

“It’s a wonderful time in history to be alive when young people are doing things better than grownups. Because that’s a key sign that evolution’s happening, because evolution only happens with young people.”

“I feel that it is necessary, if you want to continue to evolve, that you have to learn and be comfortable with computers.”
