by Timothy Leary
Edited by David Cherubim
This is Dr. Leary's only novel designed to provide a psychedelic television experience to the reader. There are four ongoing soap-opera mini-dramas. These are interwoven with commercials, special parody announcements, and mini-documentaries. The viewer is encouraged to flip from channel to channel (chapter to chapter).
The central plot is the Quixotic saga of an evolutionary agent, Dylan, a confused but sincere minstrel. He has been assigned to a primitive planet in the latter years of the Roaring 20th Century to perform those small but precise jiggles needed to cause chaos in the old, outmoded gene-pools, thus allowing creative individuals to start exploring and settling the next habitats. Dylan's mission is none other than to rediscover what woman really wants.
During his extraordinary life, Dr. Leary was known as a world-renowned psychologist, a student at West point, a defrocked Harvard professor, a hero, a relentless champion of brain-change, a counterculture guru, a stand-up philosopher, a prisoner of the U.S. Federal Government, a developer of computer software, friend to such notables as Aldous Huxley, William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg, described as "the most dangerous man in America" by President Richard Nixon, and he was an inspiration for millions of freedom-loving and free-thinking people throughout the world.
