Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The human species is evolving. Leary describes eight circuits of human metamorphosis and the imprints that occur at each. Psychedelic drugs suspend imprints and conditioning to allow new imprints to evolve. Leary describes each circuit in depth along with the consciousness that manifest at each level and its purpose. Leary believes that human are morphing into space beings. We are becoming the aliens. This book describes the complicated psychological metamorphosis that proceeds our launch into space life.

Synopsis:

In these collected essays, Timothy Leary explains his belief that humans are morphing into space beings. He describes eight circuits of human metamorphosis, analyzing in depth the consciousness — and its purpose — manifested by each change. Fifteen chapters cover a range of topics from “Spinning Up the Genetic Highway” to “Neurogeography of Terrestrial Politics” to “Twelve Stages of Post-Cultural Evolution.” In each of these insightful pieces the author describes the complicated psychological metamorphosis that precedes the launch of humans into space beings. This collection of Learys early work at his imaginative and provocative best had an enormous impact on psychology and the humanist movement.

About the Author

Timothy Leary is the visionary Harvard psychologist who became a guru of the 60's counterculture. Leary is remembered as a pioneer of research and experimentation into psychedelic substances. He lived his life as a researcher, author, lecturer, political and religious dissident, prisoner, exile, and media magnet whose charisma and radically humorous nature often captured the attention of the world. In his later years, Dr. Leary became a proponent of "cyberculture," extolling the potential of the World Wide web to empower the individual and link human beings into a truly planetary community. He was one of the first "cyber-philosophers," and few have matched his wit and charm
