This board will not be kind to you.
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.
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.
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:
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
