Timothy Leary is one of the founding fathers of the psychedelic revolution. The son of an alcoholic dentist who abandoned the family when Leary was 13, Leary went on to become a cultural icon as recognizable as the Beatles and Andy Warhol. His motto "turn on, tune in, and drop out" became the mantra for a generation. Leary was nearly 40 when he started experimenting with hallucinogens and psychotropics. Soon a new rule would be imposed on the world's youth: "don't trust anyone over 30." Leary, of course, was a spiritual father to this generation. The effects of his own father's abandonment have been reviewed by more than one commentator. In Jay Stevens' analysis of LSD and its influence on American culture, Storming Heaven, he quotes Leary as stating that his pain regarding his father's departure "emerged later during a drug session with Jack Kerouac." Kerouac's psychology was more dominated by his dominating mother then his father. Much of Leary's psychodrama has been fueled by the complex paternal issues. This might explain why Jack and Tim were not the best of friends. While Kerouac eschewed the hippies, Leary embraced them.
