Fellow psychonauts: Thoughts/opinions on the 8 Circuit Model of Consciousness

quote:

The model describes eight circuits of information (eight "brains") that operate within the human nervous system. Each circuit is concerned with a different sphere of activity.
The lower four, the larval circuits, deal with normal psychology, while the upper four, the stellar circuits, deal with psychic, mystical, enlightened and psychedelic states of mind. These higher circuits are thought to have only recently evolved, with just a fraction of human beings using them. The higher the circuit, the fewer people have activated it. Leary describes the four larval circuits as necessary for surviving and functioning in a terrestrial human society. Leary proposed that the higher four exist primarily for future use by humans who might someday migrate to outer space and live extraterrestrially.

Very thought provoking stuff.

Its such a shame that the Psychedelic Inquistion has halted such interesting and potentially paradigm shifting research.

This board will not be kind to you.

This sounds like a rewording of many mystical or esoteric traditions. It basically sounds like moving chakras to the brain. But if you investigate further you will see 8 leveled progressions throughout different schools of thought.

That qoute evokes a remembrance of a poster(Colin) that committed suicide a few months ago.

Ah Timothy Leary, maybe you need to go farther and read some Huxley.

Perhaps it's political in nature because most politicians appear not to be using their conscious.

I never could quite get into the mind altering stuff full force. I preferred beer, wine, and maybe a little Mother Earth growing up.

A documentary to watch regardless of opinions on the legality of certain drugs is "Hoffmans' Potion".

Kind of coincides with the Stoned Ape theory proposed by Terrance McKenna.


Go Fuuuurrrrtherrr




It's plausible. Explains the missing link in human evolution

I did not expect them to. Most will bash anything to do with psychedelic experience but few of them have actually done them or know what really happens if you do.

Yeah, you can tie in all kinds of religious beliefs and psychological schools of thought in different ways and most of them seem to fit. For example the first circuit has been linked to Freud's oral stage while the second has been linked to Freud's anal stage.

One thing I found particularly interesting is how a certain drug can trigger each circuit:

quote:

To activate the first brain take an opiate. Mother Opium and Sister Morphine bring you down to cellular intelligence, bio-survival passivity, the floating consciousness of the newborn. (This is why Freudians identify opiate addiction with the desire to return to infancy.)
To activate the second tunnel-reality, take an abundant quantity of alcohol. Vertebrate territorial patterns and mammalian emotional politics immediately appear when the booze flows, as Thomas Nashe intuitively realized when he characterized the various alcohol states by animal labels: "ass drunk," "goat drunk," "swine drunk," "bear drunk," etc.

To activate the third circuit, try coffee or tea, a high-protein diet, speed or cocaine.

The specific neurotransmitter for circuit four has not been synthesized yet, but it is generated by the glands after pubescence and flows volcanically through the bloodstreams of adolescents.

NOTICE how drugs that stimulate the first four circuits, which are already activated, tend to be dangerously addictive, roughly ordered ascending from the first circuit

Netflix? I've seen footage of the Hoffman interviews.
