Story by Simson L. Garfinkel, special to the Mercury News
Timothy Leary, the '60s drug guru-cum-'90s-cybernaut is, in fact, dying of inoperable prostate cancer. And he's devoted enormous time and energy to planning exactly which way he's going to go in a ``directed de-animation.''
The event was hosted at http://leary.com. Leary didn't discuss the method but there was champagne, caviar and friends ``at my little party.''
Leary says wanted to remove the taboos associated with death. His choice to direct it, he said, was a matter of dying with dignity -- even elegance.
Said Ginsberg: ``Historically, I think he'll go down as a great and noble spirit who successfully defined the conditions for the psychedelic experience . . . and was persecuted in jail in his role as a martyr to progress.''
Ginsberg paused a beat. Perhaps Leary hasn't been a martyr, he said, but instead has ``de-fanged martyrdom.''
