BLURBS #"The authority Leary claims is that of revelation. He has repeatedly made the heroic trip inward to the everlasting world, to the shut palaces of the mind. He has ridden his acid funicular up Everest and gone to hell in a handcart, to the vast inward and abyss which is bounded only by the limits of human desire and human revulsion. And he has returned with messages."
