“Turn on, tune in, drop out” given to Timothy Leary via Marshal McLuhan while the two of them were having a tête-à-tête lunch…relevant then and more so now…oh it’s The Internet baby, like the mischievous twins Good and Evil, two peas in a pod…the new religion…of Likes-n-Favorites and anonymous fickle beau coup faux Friends…and Followers…following followers…while being followed…clicking click cookie cookies…the holy wafer of your information…in the brave new world of the digital age…giving it up out of loneliness or looking for relevance…?…Kiss It!

“Turn on” meant go within to activate your neural and genetic equipment. Become sensitive to the many and various levels of consciousness and the specific triggers that engage them. Drugs were one way to accomplish this end. “Tune in” meant interact harmoniously with the world around you – externalize, materialize, express your new internal perspectives. “Drop out” suggested an active, selective, graceful process of detachment from involuntary or unconscious commitments. “Drop Out” meant self-reliance, a discovery of one’s singularity, a commitment to mobility, choice, and change. Unhappily my explanations of this sequence of personal development were often misinterpreted to mean “Get stoned” and abandon all constructive activity." Timothy Leary…a clarification from his 1983 autobiography Flashbacks.
