And which will clearly be around, spreading and growing, till the New Age is finally here in toto. [...] Crucial to the great assessment which has now begun is a clear definition of 'Hippy.' [...] A new, peaceful, sexually and emotionally liberated Role Model was born and is everywhere in struggle agains the old. [...] 'Hippy noun. Late 20th century person with a psychedelic attitude to Life. / Psychedelic adj. Spirit expanding (Greek Psyche, spiriot, and Delos, expand).'" -- From statement of purpose on first page of vol. 1.
