Podcast 219 – “Tim Leary Live in San Francisco 1979″ Part 2


Guest speaker: Dr. Timothy Leary


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

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

The Harvard Psychedelic Club“It’s obvious that if any quantum leaps are going to happen in evolution it’s best designed to happen in a period of adolescence.”

“Evolution has always involved people like us getting together as we are tonight, figuring out where we came from, and who’s slowing us down, and what’s the factual evidence as to how fast and where we can move?”

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

“The key to neurological navigation is to be able to voyage into exactly the circuits of your brain that you want to be exactly when you want to be there and with whom you want to be there.”

“The key to the Sixties, as we see it now [1979], was a period of self-discovery, of self-indulgence, and the refusal to accept the adult hive over-specialized models.”

“Show me a taboo and I’m interested in it.”

  1. The Harvard Reunion of Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert, which took place in April 1983, on the 20th anniversary of their controversial firing from the Harvard faculty, was the first time that Leary and Alpert (aka Baba Ram Dass) appeared onstage together since the mid-1960s, when the two pioneers of consciousness separated to blaze divergent paths. Their historic reunion, celebrated in Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, was considered by many people (including Leary) to be one of the most important public events of Leary’s very public life. I conceived and produced this event when I was a first-year graduate student at Harvard. I also created an 11 x 17 inch poster to promote it. Over these past 3 decades, I preserved some of the posters very carefully, knowing that one day they would be worth quite a lot as rare gems. Now, for the first time ever, I am making available for purchase a limited number of the original posters, which are in pristine, absolutely perfect condition. (Photo of poster available upon request.) If you are interested, email me at JKasof@post.Harvard.edu or call me at 323-244-9016.
