Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The parallels between the human brain and computers is easy to see today. But in the 1950s when John Lilly developed his theory of the human biocomputer, this was a dramatic new way of viewing humans. Much like a driver can step out of the car, we are not our biocomputer. The Self is something far greater and more mysterious. Rooted in his extensive knowledge of neurophysiology, neuroanatomy and electronics and developed through personal experimentation in the sensory isolation tank which he invented, Lilly presents a method for learning to manipulate—to drive the bio-robot, which is our vehicle here on Earth. robots. This manual shows how to step out of the mind-body and find out who we really are.

Synopsis:

Drawing from his extensive knowledge of and experimentation with brain biochemistry, the inventor of the sensory isolation tank outlines the parallels between computers and the human brain and offers methods for stepping out of the mind-body, leading readers on a profound journey of self-discovery. Lilly's work was adapted into two feature films, The Day of the Dolphin and Altered States.
