Timothy Leary At Cornell (1989)

Timothy Leary At Cornell - 23 April 1989

“The first very dangerous side effect of psychedelic drugs is long term memory gain. And the second is short term memory loss. And I forget the third.”

“Now think about jazz. What’s jazz about? Jazz is about singularity, about creating your own rhythm, improvising, doing your own riffs, innovating. Hey, that’s exactly what quantum physics is all about.”

“The fact that you become an individual, and think singular thoughts, doesn’t mean you can’t be understood.”

“No matter how crazy, fucked-up an individual can be, he can’t be as fucked up as the Catholic Church.”
