Prometheus Rising

Robert Anton Wilson

Imagine trying to make sense of an amalgam of Timothy Leary’s eight neurological circuits, G.I. Gurdjieff’s self-observation exercises, Alfred Korzybski’s general semantics, Aleister Crowley’s magical theorems, and the several disciplines of Yoga; not to mention Christian Science, relativity, quantum mechanics, and many other approaches to understanding the world around us. That is exactly what Robert Anton Wilson does in Prometheus Rising. In short, this is a book about how the human mind works and what you can do to make the most of yours.

    This book accompanied me on a month long hitch-hiking trip and changed the entire way that I see my experience of living in my own brain.

    Each chapter moves step by step through the eight neural circuits theorized by Timothy Leary, explaining how each one functions and then giving you guidelines for experiments to perform on yourself to play with your own programming to modify the ways that your brain processes its inputs and natural reactions.

    This book totally blew my mind in high school. A great tool for people who want to fine tune their experience of reality.
