What's behind the design?
These words refer to the famous proverb dictated by Timothy Leary in 1966 which urged people to embrace cultural changes through the use of psychedelics by detaching from the existing conventions and hierarchies in society. It was also the motto of his Ligue for Spirituality Discovery which promoted the use of LSD for the purpose of meditation, insight, and spiritual understanding.
In his own autobiographic book, Mr.Leary explains each part of the expression:
"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 engaging them. Drugs were one way to accomplish this end. "Tune in" meant to 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."
Since the sixties counterculture revolution, the phrase has been referenced across different songs, films & books.
