    Summary: 
    The album offers readings from The psychedelic experience, a manual based on the Tibetan book of the dead (New Hyde Park, N.Y.: University Books, 1964). The text, according to Leary's essay in the notes, is a guide for the living to examine and expand consciousness; that is, a guide to the psychedelic experience. Leary notes that psychedelic drugs "may well be the most important step in the evolution of the human species." The program for side 1 is "Going Out"; the program for side 2 is "Coming Back."
