Podcast 142 – “The Creation of the Future”


Guest speaker: Dr. Timothy Leary


[NOTE: All quotations below are by Dr. Timothy Leary.]

“The key thing about the human species is this: That we have not committed ourselves to an over-specialized adult form.”

“The more power you give to the young of your species, the sooner you give that power to them, the faster your species is going to grow, the farther your gene pool is going to move into the future, and of course it goes without saying, the key to everything, the more growth in the individual will result.”

“The future belongs to those who see the future.”

“The smarter you are, the higher you want to be, that’s obvious.”

“The key to the sixties, as we see it now, was a period of self-discovery, of self-indulgence, and the refusal to accept the adult-hive over-specialized models.”
