#36 The 8 Circuit Brain Model, part 2 - conversations with Antero Alli

Antero Alli

We are continuing our conversations with Antero Alli.

This series of conversations is on the topic called the 8 Circuit Brain model. It is something that Timothy Leary first brought into the western consciousness. Later, Robert Anton Wilson in his book Prometheus Rising gave it a more wide spread appeal, and Antero in his book AngelTech provided a more hands-on approach to the same model.

This conversation covers the following topics:

  • Circuit 3: symbolic-conceptual intelligence
    • Signs of getting stuck in circuit 3: “parroting”, quoting other sources, but not having it come from you. Stuck at absorbtion, without proper integration.
    • The aim of 3rd circuit is communication – real communication, making you think.
    • Being logical is not the same as thinking
  • Circuit 4: ability to get along with people
    • People are unpredictable, for the most part. Ability to live with this unpredictability
    • Confidence of C-4 is whether you are likable
    • The vehicle for C-4: the ego personality
    • Annoyance as an indicator of unfulfilled needs / points of growth
  • Circuit 5: somatic intelligence; somatic opening to present time, living in the present, opening to all 5 senses.
    • Like circuit 1, only with awareness. Getting high.
    • Various practices can do it (meditation, etc.). If you live long enough, it tends to open up eventually, like any other circuit.
    • Charisma: transmission of integrated circuit 5. Certain amount of performance on stage produces charisma.
  • Circuit 6:
    • The central nervous system becomes self-aware.
    • The energy body / double / aura
    • Chakras
  • Circuit 7: Mytho-poetic, genetic intelligence
    • This is where things become genuinely weird
    • Existing conditions that are shared among the immediate family members
  • Circuit 8: non-local
    • Out of body experiences, near-death experiences
    • Finding non-locality in your experience, beyond the confines of time and space
    • What Antero calls “Void”
    • Connections between circuits 1-5, 2-6, 3-7, 4-8
