Nor did he remember that he started to have symptoms there—first and foremost a progressive loss of vision. ↩, Jean Cocteau, in fact, said this of opium. The place must be as big as a stadium.” But he could not be more specific. R.R. Buy The Last of the Hippies by Stone, C.J. First, it had compressed or destroyed structures of the inner, or medial, side of both the temporal lobes—in particular, the hippocampus and its adjacent cortex, areas crucial for the capacity to acquire new memories. But his answers were short, never expanded the question, never gave rise to associations or reflection. Early in 1979, when I questioned him, he said he was “miserable…at least in the corporeal part,” and added, “It’s not much of a life.” At such times, it was clear that he was not just frivolous and euphoric, but capable of deep, and indeed melancholic, reactions to his plight. This was not a question I could decide at first, and perhaps too I was prejudiced against finding any depths in Greg, because the neuropsychological studies I knew of seemed to disallow this possibility. When I asked him about this, he said, “I have no choice.” And this, as he said it, seemed wise and true. Since, tragically, no recovery could be expected, or very little, Greg was admitted to Williamsbridge, a hospital for the chronically sick, a twenty-five-year-old boy for whom active life had come to an end, and for whom the prognosis was “hopeless.”.

Though, as a neurologist, I had to speak of his “syndrome,” his “deficits,” I did not feel this was adequate to describe Greg. ↩, Luria has provided immensely detailed, at times almost novelistic, descriptions of frontal-lobe syndromes—Luria, Human Brain and Psychological Processes (1966)—and sees this “equalization” as the heart of such syndromes. Soon after admission he was moved to a ward with younger patients, where with his open and sunny personality he became popular. If I had ever doubted Greg’s capacity for deeper feeling, I no longer doubted it now.

Didn’t you just hear them at Madison Square Garden?”, “No,” he said, “I’ve never been to the Garden.”, Greg has no recollection of the concert, seemingly—but when I was sent a tape of it, he immediately recognized some of the “new” pieces, found them familiar, was able to sing them.

Wally was arrested and incarcerated in a mental institution after having been found in possession of a small amount of LSD. But then the thumping, pounding excitement of the crowd got him—the rhythmic clapping and stamping and chanting possessed him—and he started to chant, “The Dead! His greatest passion in life was music, and more specifically The Grateful Dead. He did not actually know any of the other patients or the staff, at least for several months, but was invariably (if indiscriminately) pleasant to them all. A couple of days after the last person had left the festival site. He was born and raised in Queens, New York to a professional family. When’s the next book coming out?” (a question which rather distressed me in the seemingly endless interim between the publication of Awakenings and A Leg to Stand On, an eleven-year period in which I thought I would never write again). While explicit learning requires the integrity of the medial temporal lobe systems, implicit learning may employ more primitive and diffuse paths, as do the simple processes of conditioning and habituation. Questioning him about current events and people, I found the depths of his disorientation and confusion. First published in 1982 as part of the Crass record album Christ: The Album, Penny Rimbaud's The Last of the Hippies is a fiery anarchist polemic centered on the story of his friend, Phil Russell aka Wally Hope, who was murdered by the State while incarcerated in a mental institution. “You went there a few nights ago.”, “I don’t remember it,” he said, “but that’s a real big noise—huge. See search results for this author. His sense of there being two Connies, his segmenting Connie into two, was characteristic of the bewilderments he sometimes found himself in, his need to hypothesize additional figures because he could not retain or conceive of an identity in time. “Where did you hear that?” I asked as we listened to “Picasso Moon.”, “I can’t remember,” he said, “didn’t hear it, anything like it, at the Central Park concert.”, I had wondered whether hearing the songs, and especially hearing a tape of the concert itself, with all the sounds of coughing, clapping, singing, and background noise, would bring back the memory of Madison Square Garden. There is a simple round which has not changed in twenty, or fifty, years. Thus amnesiacs may have perfect, intact “immediate” memories, but lack the ability to transfer them into permanent memory. The Last of the Hippies fast became the seminal text of what was then known as anarcho-punk and which later blossomed into the antiglobalization movement. He showed a rare and wonderful continuity of attention, everything orienting him, holding him together. Three more years passed before Greg’s parents finally decided they had to see for themselves. He is a fossil, the last hippie. Music was a door to a world of feeling, of meaning, a world in which Greg could, if only for a while, recover himself. Skip to main content.ca. Get immediate access to the current issue and over 20,000 articles from the archives, plus the NYR App. See Jerry Garcia’s Afro?” with such conviction that I was momentarily taken in, and looked (in vain) for a tombstone behind the drums—before realizing it was one of Greg’s confabulations—and at the now-gray hair of Jerry Garcia, which fell in a straight, unhindered descent to his shoulders. One felt that Greg, though damaged, still had a personality, an identity, a soul.16. “How do you feel?” I returned to this again and again. “The only radical remedy for dipsomania,” as William James wrote, “is religiomania.” The philosophy, the fellowship, the chanting, the rituals, the austere and charismatic figure of the swami himself came like a revelation to Greg, and he became, almost immediately, a passionate devotee and convert.1 Now there was a center, a focus, to his life. Thus though his amnesia is chiefly caused by damage to the temporal lobe systems, damage to the diencephalon and frontal lobes also has a part. Or, see all newsletter options here. But have you seen them since? He was still, he said, “a total believer,” devoted to the group’s doctrines and aims. One could not avoid the feeling that Greg was looking for his father, even though he could give no account of what he was doing, and had no explicit knowledge of what he had lost. This shopping feature will continue to load items when the Enter key is pressed. But then there were newer songs, radically different, like “Picasso Moon,” with dark and deep harmonies, and an electronic instrumentation such as would have been impossible, unimaginable, in the 1960s. And it was this—rather than his blindness, or his weakness, or his disorientation, or his amnesia—which so horrified his parents when they finally saw Greg in 1975. You're listening to a sample of the Audible audio edition. When he came to Williamsbridge we all responded to his intelligence, his high spirits, his wit. But, it seemed to me, there was perhaps now an implicit knowledge, and perhaps too a symbolic (though not a conceptual) knowing. “He comes every day. Everyone liked him; he would respond to anyone at once, with a lightness and a humor and an absence of guile or hesitation; and if there was something too light or flippant or indiscriminate in his interactions and reactions, and if, moreover, he lost all memory of them in a minute, well, this was one of the results of his disease. ↩, A fascinating account of such a natural “lobotomy” is related by Lytton Strachey concerning Dr. North, a master of Trinity College, Cambridge, in the seventeenth century. And where he had been so “difficult,” so tormented, so rebellious, in his pre-Krishna days, all this anger and torment and angst now seemed to have vanished; he seemed to be at peace. Paulo Coelho's most autobiographical story, is an interesting documentary about the hippie generation of the 70's.” –L’Express “Paulo Coelho is undoubtedly an alchemist. ↩, The nature of the “organic unity,” at once dynamic and semantic, which is central to music, incantation, recitation, and all metrical structures, has been most profoundly analyzed by Victor Zuckerkandl, in his remarkable book Sound and Symbol (two volumes, Princeton University Press, 1973). I feared that if I stopped playing the Dead, or talking about them, for a single moment, all memory of the concert would go from his mind. He seemed to think, indeed, that this was what “seeing” meant, that this was what was meant by “watching TV,” and that this is what all of us did. ↩, The development of a special highspeed, multistage transfer system for explicit memory seems to be a recent development in evolution, one which perhaps parallels the development of consciousness itself (see Gerald Edelman, The Remembered Present, 1990). Again, he not only retained his power to play the guitar, but actually learned to type while at Williams-bridge—so his procedural memory was also unimpaired. Smells are sometimes even more evocative than music; and the percepts of smells, generated in a very primitive part of the brain—the “smell brain,” or rhinencephalon—may not go through the complex, multistage memory systems of the medial temporal lobe. Directed by Jim Kohlberg. Mr. Thompson’s premorbid personality was that of a New York cabbie, and in some sense his frontal lobe syndrome merely intensified this. His parents, so estranged from him when he was rebellious and well, came daily, doted on him, now that he was helpless and ill; and they, for their part, could be sure, at any time, that he would be at the hospital, smiling and grateful for their visit. Former CRASS-Drummer Penny Rimbaud published Shibboleth in 1999, a book in which he already wrote a lot about his adventures with CRASS, his hippie years and the fight about Dial House, the commune of CRASS. This sort of learning was exceedingly slow, but once it had been achieved, it was tenaciously retained. I heard them in Central Park and at the Fillmore East.”, “Yes,” I said, “you told me. I often saw Greg in the corridors, being wheeled to different programs, or out to the patio, in his wheelchair, with the same odd, blind, yet searching look on his face. Olfactory memories, neurally, are almost indelible; thus they may be remembered despite an amnesia. It’s over a year since I last saw him…. His energy and joy were amazing to see; he clapped and sang nonstop, with none of the weakness and fatigue he generally showed. He remembers all the founding members of the Grateful Dead, from 1967. Although Greg has damage to both, it is especially the medial portions of his frontal lobes which have been compressed by the tumor, hence he shows, predominantly, an excitatory syndrome. Dr. North, it is evident, was a man with severe anxieties, and tormenting obsessional traits, who was hated and dreaded by the fellows of the college for his punctiliousness, his moralizing, and his merciless severity. This slim manual, in its green paper cover, was handed out in vast quantities by the swami’s saffron-robed followers, and it became Greg’s Bible at this stage. Toward the end of the year Greg, normally a sound sleeper, started to sleep poorly, to get up in the middle of the night, and wander gropingly for hours around his room. But the second half of the concert was somewhat strange for Greg: more of the songs dated from the mid- or late Seventies, and had lyrics which were unknown to him, though they were familiar in style. Greg can repeat a complicated sentence with complete accuracy and understanding the moment he hears it, but within three minutes, or sooner if he is distracted for an instant, he will retain not a trace of it, or any idea of its sense, or any memory that it ever existed. One might indeed tell him that his father had died, again and again. It further describes his history, events that led to his condition, diagnosis and his unusual treatment. He was, I noted, somewhat weak and spastic in all his limbs, more on the left, and more in the legs. It is easy to show that simple information can be embedded in songs; thus we can give Greg the date every day, in the form of a jingle, and he can readily isolate this, and say it when asked—give it, that is, without the jingle. He died last month.”. . An important historical document. Reprinted in The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat (Harper and Row, 1987). And then, “Pigpen!” Greg exclaimed, “You see Pigpen there?”, “No,” I replied, hesitantly, not knowing how to reply. Some amnesiacs, like Jimmie (the Korsakov’s patient whom I described in “The Lost Mariner”6 ) have brain damage largely confined to the memory systems of the diencephalon and medial temporal lobe; others, like Mr. Thompson (described in “A Matter of Identity”7 ) are not only amnesiac, but have frontal lobe syndromes as well; yet others—like Greg, with immense tumors—tend to have a third area of damage as well, deep below the cerebral cortex, in the forebrain, or diencephalon. He had looked a little tired and pale before, but now he was flushed, excited by the encounter, charged and eager to be back for more music. Oliver Sacks (1933–2015) was a physician and the author of over ten books, the most recent of which is On the Move: A Life. Penny Rimbaud is a writer, poet, philosopher, painter, musician, and activist. The tragedy of his amnesia seemed to become greater with the years, although his amnesia itself, his neurological syndrome, remained much the same. I had heard, from the hospital social worker, that he had a passion for music, especially for rock-and-roll bands of the Sixties; I saw piles of records as soon as I entered his room, and a guitar lying against his bed. This is something which Connie Tomaino and I are trying to do now. Between questions, if the time was not filled, there tended to be a deepening silence; and if this lasted for more than a minute, he would fall into Hare Krishna chants, or to a soft muttering of mantras. It was clear that Greg’s tumor had caused damage that was complex and curious. Greg F. grew up in the 1950s in a comfortable Queens household, an attractive and rather gifted boy who seemed destined, like his father, for a professional career—perhaps a career in songwriting, for which he showed a precocious talent. I see him every day.”, “No,” I said, “he’s no longer coming…. It would be fascinating to bring Greg hot pretzels, or hash, to see whether their smells could evoke memories of the concert. Moreover, music does not consist of sparse propositions (like “rays softened asphalt”), but is rich with emotion, association, and meaning. “I’ve lost something, I’m looking for something,” he would say when asked—but what he had lost, what he was looking for, he could never explain. As the band came onstage, and the noise of the crowd grew greater, Greg was transported by the excitement, and started clapping loudly, and shouting in an enormous voice, “Bravo! In his person, and in his world, now, Greg knew only presence, not absence. Thus waking consciousness is dreaming—but dreaming constrained by external reality. And have to be shot. by Joachim Hiller OX Fanzine October 2015. Our payment security system encrypts your information during transmission. But while Greg is so often unable to recall events or encounters or facts to consciousness, he might nonetheless have an unconscious or implicit memory of them, a memory expressed in performance or behavior. His parents had seen him occasionally when he was in the Brooklyn temple, but now all communication from him virtually ceased. He seemed to have no sense of “next,” and to lack that eager and anxious tension of anticipation, of intention, that drives us through life. Every time his wife goes out of the room, he has a sense of calamitous, permanent loss. Sacks tells a story of a young male who suffers from anterograde and retrograde amnesia following a midline tumor. As ten years or so passed, Greg showed a complete absence of development, his talk seemed increasingly dated and repertorial, for nothing new was being added to it, or him. The sense of Greg’s incorrigibility gradually grew on us, and with this we started to do less, to hope less. You see Pigpen there?” And, word for word, the whole conversation repeated itself. ↩, Rodolfo Llinás, of New York University, comparing the electrophysiological properties of the brain in waking and dreaming, postulates a single fundamental mechanism for both—a ceaseless “inner talking” between cerebral cortex and thalamus, a ceaseless interplay of image and feeling, irrespective of whether there is sensory input or not. He could not stand alone. We work hard to protect your security and privacy. The temple felt he needed to be protected at this stage—he no longer went out or did anything unaccompanied—and contact with the outside world was strongly discouraged. But it was a philosophicalness made possible by his indifference, his brain damage. When a nurse announced, “Lunch is here,” he immediately responded, “It’s time for cheer”; when she said, “Shall I take the skin off your chicken?” he instantly responded, “Yeah, why don’t you slip me some skin.” “Oh, you want the skin?” she asked, puzzled. But was there a deeper Greg beneath his illness, beneath the shallowing effect of his frontal lobe loss and amnesia? The great- I..en hau lept the smiling, bronzed, hippy warrior from his festival and now, having effected their cure, ejected a nervous gibbering wreck onto their grey streets. Yet while Greg, no longer capable of transforming his perceptions or immediate memories into permanent ones, remains stuck in the Sixties, when his ability to learn new information broke down, he has nevertheless adapted somehow and absorbed some of his surroundings, albeit very slowly and incompletely.5. This inert state was at first described by the nurses as “brooding”; it had been seen in the temple as “meditating”; my own feeling was that it was a profoundly pathological mental “idling,” almost devoid of content, of affect, of attention, and even of arousal. Given this radical lack of connection and continuity in his inner life, I got the feeling, indeed, that he might not have “an inner life” to speak of, that he lacked the constant dialogue of past and present, of experience and meaning, which constitutes consciousness and inner life for the rest of us. Padmasambhava, the eighth century, was the founder of the Nyingma-pa Buddhist order and one of the first to bring Buddhism to Tibet. The diencephalon is especially a regulator of basic functions—of sleep, of appetite, of libido, etc. But then, in a few minutes, he would forget, and be cheerful again; and was so prevented from going through the work of grief, the mourning.18. He remembers all the founding members of the Grateful Dead, from 1967. A few more questions convinced me that Greg had virtually no memory of events much past 1970, certainly no coherent, chronological memory of them. Buy Last of the Hippies First Thus by Stone, C.J. I myself was away at the time for several weeks, and hearing the news on my return, I hastened to Greg, who had been given the news, of course, when it happened. “It’s the least stupid smell in the world.”20. Indeed he seemed unaware that he had any problems: that he was blind, that he was unable to walk steadily, that he was in any way ill. Unaware—and indifferent. It is beatitude, said his swami: he is becoming a saint. Music, songs, seemed to bring Greg what, apparently, he lacked, to evoke in him a depth to which he otherwise had no access. If he lacked spontaneity, and initiated no exchanges, he responded promptly and appropriately, and with wit, when I spoke to him. He has not come for some time. Although the patient had no explicit memory of this, he refused, thereafter, to shake hands with him. “Knowing the date” means nothing in these circumstances. "If you are interested in CRASS and anarcho punk in general you shouldn’t miss out on this book." When there is sensory input, this interplay integrates it to generate “waking consciousness,” but in the absence of sensory input it continues to generate brain states, those brain states we call fantasy, hallucination, or dreaming. It's definitely a micro history focusing on a single subject, anything else that happened in the era was ignored unless it touched on the hippies. Larry Squire, a neuropsychologist at the University of California, San Diego, who has been a central figure in elucidating this shunting function of the temporal lobe memory system, speaks of the brevity, the precariousness, of immediate memory in us all; all of us, on occasion, suddenly lose a perception or an image or a thought we had vividly in mind (“Damn it,” we may say, “I’ve forgotten what I wanted to say!”), but only in amnesiacs is this precariousness realized to the full. But the facts were isolated, denuded of context. When I asked him about seeing, he acknowledged that his eyes weren’t “all that good,” but added that he enjoyed “watching” the TV. C.J. And whereas for the rest of us, the present is given its meaning and depth by the past (hence it becomes “the remembered present,” in Gerald Edelman’s term), as well as being given potential and tension by the future, for Greg it was flat and (in its meager way) complete. He enjoyed these, clapping and singing along wordlessly, or making up words as he went. News about upcoming issues, contributors, special events, online features, and more. He did not complain of this, he did not even mention it; it was only discovered when he tried to stand up the following day. Although Greg’s parents did not have any direct communication from him, they did get occasional reports from the temple—reports filled, increasingly, with accounts of his “spiritual progress,” his “enlightenment,” accounts at once so vague and so out of character with the Greg they knew that, by degrees, they became alarmed. But the next morning when I came to the hospital early, I found Greg in the dining room, alone, facing the wall. The first half of the concert had many earlier pieces, songs from the Sixties, and Greg knew them, loved them, joined in. In 1988 Greg had a seizure—he had never had one before (although he had been on anticonvulsants, as a precaution, since the time of his surgery)—and in the seizure broke a leg. In 1975, then, not having seen him for four years, they visited their son in the temple in New Orleans. I made a point of seeing Greg frequently in the following months, but I did not again bring up the subject of his father’s death. We got him dressed swiftly, and bundled him into the car. “When did you hear them in Central Park?” I asked. “No, Greg,” I answered, “he was well up in his seventies.”. Greg seemed to adjust to Williamsbridge with remarkable ease, considering he was a young man being placed, probably forever, in a hospital for the chronically ill. Greg immediately repeated this, without error, laughed at it, asked if I’d made it up, and compared it to “something gruesome, like Edgar Allan Poe.” But two minutes later he could not recall it. As we cruised down 33rd Street, the smell of hot pretzels suddenly struck him; he inhaled deeply, and laughed, “That’s the most New York smell in the world.”. He himself, the day after the concert, spontaneously mentioned the “great” smell of pretzels—it was very vivid for him—and yet he could not locate the smell in place or time. I found this aspect of Greg’s blindness, his singular blindness to his blindness, his no longer knowing what “seeing” or “looking” meant, deeply perplexing. Similarly there are multiple origins for his blandness and indifference, for which damage to the frontal lobes, diencephalon, and pituitary gland is in varying degrees responsible. Greg sang along enthusiastically all the way back, and when we parted at the hospital, he was still in an exuberant concert mood. hold him together completely…because they have an organic rhythm and stream, a flowing of being, which carries and holds him.” I was strongly reminded here of what I had seen with my amnesiac patient Jimmie, how he seemed held together when he attended Mass, by his relationship to and participation in an act of meaning, an organic unity, which overrode or bypassed the disconnections of his amnesia.13 And what I had observed with a patient in England, a musician with profound amnesia from a temporal lobe encephalitis, unable to remember events or facts for more than a few seconds, but able to remember, and indeed to learn, elaborate musical pieces, to conduct them, to perform them, and even to improvise at the organ.14 In Greg’s case, of course, there was not just an amnesia, but a severe frontal-lobe syndrome as well, tending to “shallow” him, to remove genuine feeling and meaning, to replace these with a sort of indifference or frivolity. He is, in a sense, preternaturally sensitive—but it is a sensitivity that is passive, without selectivity or focus. Included with a Kindle Unlimited membership. “It’s been a while, over a year maybe,” he answered—but in fact they had last played there eight years earlier, in 1969. “It’s weird stuff,” he said, “I never heard anything like it before.” He listened intently, all his musical senses stirred, but with a slightly scared and bewildered look, as if seeing a new animal, a new plant, a new world, for the first time. And yet I was not quite sure what to say—had he been able to absorb this new fact? Greg had worried at first about his eyesight, but was reassured by the swami’s spiritual explanation. Damage to the outer, or lateral, portions of the frontal lobes tends to cause profound apathy and immobility, while damage to the inner or medial portions causes the opposite, a state of wisecracking and excitement. And under his influence, Greg, like so many others, stopped taking acid, finding his religious exaltation a replacement for his acid highs. Such learning, they stress, is invariably slow and inefficient, but it does occur. At first I did not want to confront Greg with the enormity of his time loss, his amnesia, or even to let involuntary hints through (which he would certainly pick up, for he was very sensitive to anomaly and tone)—so I changed the subject, and said, “Let me examine you.”.
