Testing the Bounds of Reality

Interviewer: What do you mean you’ll sometimes extend yourself … work the people up a bit?
Morrison: Let’s just say I was testing the bounds of reality. I was curious to see what would happen. That’s all it was: just curiosity.

Interviewer: What did you do to test the bounds?
Morrison: Just push a situation as far it it’ll go.

Interviewer: And yet you don’t feel at any time that things got out of control?
Morrison: Never.

Interviewer: There is a quote attributed to you. It appears in print a lot. It goes: “I’m interested in anything about revolt, disorder, chaos…”
Morrison: “… especially activity that appears to have no meaning.”

Jim Morrison, interviewed by Jerry Hopkins. Rolling Stone Magazine (1969).
