"Trickster is a major figure in American Indian folk Wisdom. Also in Sufi Tales … a certain type of "rascal"-with a grin and a wink (and wisdom beyond wisdom) … in the Zen tradition this is known as the School of Crazy Wisdom … Timothy Leary-in his own inimitable way-has become the twentieth century's grand master of crazy wisdom …"
- Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove

I am enamoured by Dr. Leary, as I am with Joseph Campbell but each of those persons chose to do interviews with hand -picked interviewers.

Popular passages

Page 3 - Out— detach yourself from the external social drama which is as dehydrated and ersatz as TV. Turn On— find a sacrament which returns you to the temple of God, your own body. Go out of your mind. Get high. Tune In— be reborn. Drop back in to express it. Start a new sequence of behavior that reflects your vision.
