#37 The 8 Circuit Brain Model, part 3 - 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:

  • Timothy Leary, Robert Anton Wilson, and Antero Alli – comparing approaches
  • Language as a magical act – evoking experiences through the use of language
    • Writing of Robert Anton Wilson
  • Interactions of lower and upper circuits
    • 1 & 5: anchor / stabilize your survival needs before you can safely experience bliss, and experience it longer. Get high, but remember to pay rent and stuff the fridge.
    • Each upper circuit contains a specific shock to the system. The shock of circuit 5 is the shock of ecstasy. Circuit 6 – the shock of freedom.
    • 2 & 6: develop emotional connections before opening up circuit six. Vision without compassion is cruelty.
    • 3 & 7: the rational mind has a need to come up with new words and symbols to convey the experience of the shock of unity of the 7th circuit.
