Timothy Leary's Transformation From Scientist to Psychedelic Celebrity - Wired Science Timothy Leary's Transformation From Scientist to Psychedelic Celebrity - Wired Science Timothy Leary’s life is now open to the public. The archives of the one-time Harvard psychologist who became an evangelist for the mind-expanding potential of hallucinogenic drugs in the 1960s have found a new home at the New York Public Library, which recently threw a party to celebrate their release. I was born too late to witness Leary’s transition from scientist to counterculture celebrity, and I hoped the archives might offer a little hint of what it was like to be there. So I got myself invited to the opening in hopes of being enlightened. By Leary standards the party was pretty tame — people sipped wine, a man handed out peacock feathers, a flatscreen in the corner looped strange video games Leary helped develop late in life (he died in 1996).

There are many aspects of the very public Charlie Sheen kerfuffle after his feud with CBS that we wish we could forget: the term "winning," the bizarre references to "tiger blood," the rambling boasts. And then there are the aspects we already have forgotten: namely, the identities of Sheen's "goddesses," as he dubbed his live-in girlfriends. Porn star and Penthouse model Bree Olson, whose real name is Rachel Oberlin, was one of those goddesses, appearing briefly with Sheen in his bizarre 20/20 interview. While the publicity around Sheen's erratic behavior swelled, his relationship with Olson ended, and she took the opportunity (and perhaps used the notoriety) to pursue a more mainstream acting career. Unfortunately for her, an aging actor dating a young porn star was the least sensational thing about the Sheen drama; the public was more concerned with who'd replace the actor on Two and a Half Men than it was with his paramour.
