We know who we are. We are the dispossessed, the outcasts, and the outsiders, rebels with a cause who have upturned the mulch of our dead lives and seeded those fertile fields with incendiary visions of our future selves. Having already subverted the norm, we renounce dominator culture's status quo of everything and drift happy disconnected — babes in the abyss — wavering in the ambiguity fog of dislocation. Free-floating between old worlds and the new, guided only by the shining paths of mother evolution. We have passed over, we have passed the point of no-return and since there is no turning back, we celebrate the momentum lifting us on the wings of perception, grace, and whatever skills we have earned from surviving the inevitable catastrophe of self. Only when we are over, does our real life begin. (from Section 2: Praxis, Week Six: Chapel Perilous)
The Eight-Circuit Brain advances and expands the material in Alli's groundbreaking book, Angel Tech, a compendium of techniques and practical applications based on Dr. Timothy Leary's 8-Circuit Brain model. After more than twenty years of research and experimentation, Antero's earlier findings are significantly updated and enriched in this new body of work. It includes a comprehensive 8-week course of study and practice, the author's "Neurological Autobiography of Outside Shocks and Hedonic Upgrades," Forum interactions with students from his Eight-Circuit course, stories from his encounters with Christopher S. Hyatt and Robert Anton Wilson, and much, much more. Extensively Illustrated.
Antero Alli is that special brand of human--a frontier scout for the species--out there on the rim where the past and future intersect.
Timothy Leary, Ph.D.
The Eight-Circuit Brain is for the express purpose of self-realization and self-development. Although you can just read the book for its many intriguing observations and ideas on the development and refinement of mind and soul, if you are willing to put in the time and effort, you may find the exercises will produce some very tangible results.
Antero Alli's brilliant new book The Eight Circuit Brain is his contribution to the model originally developed by Timothy Leary and later expanded on by Robert Anton Wilson; it goes one step further in grounding the ideas of Leary and Wilson in the body. This distinction makes his work the most accessible and valuable. If you are at a point in your life when you are willing to examine and confront your history, habits and cultural and emotional biases, this book may be one of the most valuable low cost tools you will find among the thousand of self-help books available today.
Antero Alli's ingenious, entertaining, and practical book on 'navigational strategies for the energetic body' creatively builds upon Timothy Leary's and Robert Anton Wilson's 8-circuit model of the brain--especially with regard to the relationship between the higher and lower circuits--and brings their valuable model into new and unexpected terrain. Antero has helped to transform the theory into a practical alchemical tool for understanding, managing, and reorganizing the different parts of who we are.
