Leary was inspired by Ginsberg's enthusiasm, and the two shared an optimism in the benefit of psychedelic substances to help people "turn on" i.

Together they began a campaign of introducing other intellectuals and artists to psychedelics. His research focused on treating alcoholism and reforming criminals. Many of his research subjects told of profound mystical and spiritual experiences which they said permanently, and very positively, altered their lives.

The Concord Prison Experiment was designed to evaluate the effects of psilocybin combined with psychotherapy on rehabilitation of released prisoners. After being guided through the psychedelic experience, or "trips," by Leary and his associates, 36 prisoners were reported to have repented and sworn to give up future criminal activity.

Compared to the average recidivism rate of 60 percent for American prisoners in general, the recidivism rate for those involved in Leary's project dropped to 20 percent. The experimenters concluded that long-term reduction in overall criminal recidivism rates could be effected with a combination of psilocybin-assisted group psychotherapy inside the prison along with a comprehensive post-release follow-up support program modeled on Alcoholics Anonymous.

These conclusions were later 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. Rick Doblin , suggested that Leary and himself had fallen prey to the Halo Effect , skewing their results and clinical conclusions. 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.

This was run by Lisa Bieberman now known as Licia Kuenning ,[20] a disciple of Leary[21] and one of his many lovers. To satisfy the curiosity of those who were turned away, a black market for psychedelics sprang up near the Harvard campus. Leary, lecturer on clinical psychology, has failed to keep his classroom appointments and has absented himself from Cambridge without permission, to relieve him from further teaching duty and to terminate his salary as of April 30, Leary later wrote: 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. 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. Repeated FBI raids ended the Millbrook era. Regarding a raid by Liddy, Leary told author and Prankster Paul Krassner , "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.

On October 6, , LSD was made illegal in the United States and controlled so strictly that not only were possession and recreational use criminalized, but all legal scientific research programs on the drug in the US were shut down as well. Too much time was spent explaining ideas that only make sense on acid. I learned a lot from this book.

There are lives lived and then there is Tim Leary. He had more phases in his life that I even knew about. I've never read about anyone who had this much craziness,unbelievable situations, and influence.

The book is very well written and thorough. It was a fun read. I especially liked the info near the end of the book about famous scientists, computer wizards, and nobel prize winners who credited lsd with aiding their success.

Leary definitely had his flaws and they are laid out here, but his life was anything but boring.

This book exceeded my expectations and made every chapter of his life fun to read about. Written in , but relevant to topics today, this book revives for me memories from the '60s and '70s. I never knew that much about Leary's story, but he is definitely a name we all knew and it was connected to 'tripping' on LSD, searching for another consciousness. Like other visionaries, he was who he was, not always likable or kind, but bent on living his vision.

site Edition Verified download. This is a really fantastic and riveting biography of Leary, who in case you don't know, was a Harvard professor of psychology who became obsessed with LSD and at one point told the world to "turn on, tune in and drop out". Leary's own life was an incredible whirlwind kaleidoscope of events, some good, some bad, and Higgs' book does justice to it, as much as any one book can. The writer portrays Timothy Leary as brilliant and warm and even loveable, but also as somewhat flawed.

As I read on, I felt increasingly disappointed with Tim's life choices but began to wonder whose disappointment I was feeling.

It's clear that Tim made some curious choices and did disappoint others including the author of the biography many times. However, based on the book, I'm inclined to think that Tim comes out of it quite well. Although life was difficult at times especially with Nixon pursuing him , he not only survived a truly madcap existence but also enjoyed life and was involved in fresh adventures to the very end.
