Chaos & cyber cultureby Timothy Leary
The concept of individuals with choice and identity seemed total folly, the ultimate nightmare —not just of authoritarian bureaucrats, but of common-sense liberals. Chaos must be controlled!
The standard way to tame and domesticate the impossible complexity that surrounds us is to invent a few "tooth-fairy" Gods, the more infantile the better, and to lay down a few childish rules: Honour your father and your mother, etc. The rules are simple and logical. You passively obey. You pray. You sacrifice. You work. You believe.
And then, Praise the Bored, let there be no terrorizing notions about individuals hanging around this meaningless, disordered universe trying to figure how to design themselves some individual selves.
