like what we've done with the place!
Brainstage: Nourishment survival, imprinted on Mother, 2-Dimensional
Leary's description: "After the incredible journey of being
born, the earthling baby has earned the bliss of cuddling in his/her
mother's arms. Automated survival instincts of suckling and clinging
to mother's breast activate. This reality is primarily 2-Dimensional,
wherein the babies' surroundings are less important beyond being loved,
safe and warm."
What you'll find: Come on inÍthe water's fine! Try experiencing
your reality at eye level. Find "mom" and be warm, nurtured, and comforted.
Brainstage: Locomotion, political,
Leary's description: "When a toddler gets his/her wheels (learns
to walk), he/she becomes a full-fledged member of the clan. Circuit
two activates mastery of one's dexterity and the manipulation (both
physically and politically) of one's surroundings. The phenomena known
as the "terrible two's" is a result of circuit two development."
What you'll find: Here be objects and boundaries! It's time
to develop your concept of personal space. Explore. Play "Twister."
Gather and hoard things. Stake our your territory and defend it.
Brainstage: Language past/present/future, conceptual, 4-D (time)
Leary's description: "As the child masters locomotion and politics,
circuit three activates the ability to conceptualize and use tools/artifacts.
The most intricate and powerful artifact is language. The ability
to communicate in a sophisticated manner allows access to the clans
available knowledge. Peer group activity becomes the paramount re-enforcement
signal. Mastery of the concept of time allows the ability to reflect
What you'll find: It's time to find what represents your world.
Discover words, symbols, and communication tools. Leave a message.
Talk about your earliest language experience. Make up a new language
and teach it to others. Or communicate without any language at all
(if you canÍ)!
Brainstage: Puberty, sexual-emotional
Leary's description: "Circuit four is triggered through hormonal
activation. These emotion-chemicals mutate the body into the adult
form. As the earthling body transforms, alarming and dramatic emotional
changes occur. Not to worry... These physical and emotional outbursts
are actually quite normal. They are necessary exercises in opening
the fourth or "Heart" circuit."
What you'll find: Welcome! This is the place to imprint social
roles and develop your civilization. Put on your "responsible adult
member of society" mask! Find your family unit. Interact with them.
Share food. Look like you belong. Conform to their society (it's okay
Circuits 5 through 8 -
The Big Picture
"As the earthling enters adulthood,
the potential for the activation of circuits Five through Eight
become available. These circuits are of a increasingly transcendental
nature. Where Circuits One through Four are said to be analytical
in nature, circuits Five through Eight are intuitive and psychedelic
in nature." - T. Leary
Brainstage: Ecstatic, imprinted
by peak experiences. Non-ordinary reality... Being "High"
Leary's description: "Circuit
Five is activated by repeated and consistent application of various
highly sophisticated technologies developed by ancient earthling
initiates. These practices take many forms to appeal to a wide audience.
Athletics, Drama, Literature, Meditation and Music are a few examples
of such technologies. As an earthling excels in any of these yogas,
they achieve a state of concentration and skill that produces an
ecstatic or euphoric sensation within the body/mind. The resulting
elevated sense of Well-being and comprehension (being high) insures
What you'll find: . The psychedelic experience begins here!
Discover pleasure for pleasure's sake. Explore body paints, pastels,
lights, toys, and shiny things. Play! Enjoy the experience of using
your body and senses as tools for enjoyment.
Brainstage: Meta-programming, thinking
about thinking, re-programming old imprints, reality selection.
Leary's description: "Circuit six is associated with so-called
psi phenomena such as pre-cognition and telepathic ability. Modern
physics describes all matter as vibratory in nature. In interpersonal
communication, the implementation of circuit six is perceived by earthlings
as 'picking up on the vibes' of another individual. In the old days
we used to call this being in tune with one's bio-rhythms. The implementation
phase of circuit six may be thought of as creative reality selection
or meta-programming as described Dr. John C. Lilly, M.D. in his book:
Programming and Metaprogramming in the Human Biocomputer. The
ability to redesign one's reality is known as the Art of Magick in
certain circles (no pun intended). The basic concept is that if one
has focus and technique, one can re-define the way one sees and interacts
What you'll find: Here's the place to self-program your nervous
system. Try doing it with "PONG"--one of the first interactive television
experiences! Check out the biofeedback machines and meditation aids.
Get hooked up!
Brainstage: Collective unconscious,
species wisdom retrieval.
Leary's description: "Here is where we tap into the earthling
collective... past, present and future. Circuit seven is the collective
unconscious mind/brain of Dr. Carl Jung. It is believed by science
that all of humanity's evolutionary history is archived within the
double helix of our DNA. This information may be accessed through
circuit seven activation. Reincarnation and past life regression may
be alternative interpretations of aspects of a fully functional circuit
What you'll find: Here's the space to discover your DNA is
malleable and can be reprogrammed. Access symbols of life and genetics.
Discuss where we're going as a society. Want some topics? How about
how much of our life is controlled or determined by your genes? Should
we create new species? Would you eat genetically engineered food?
Should you clone Fluffy?
Brainstage: Galactic mind, non-local
access to universal matrix, contact.
Leary's description: "The ability for earthlings to be in communication
with non-local (other worldly) intelligence has been recorded since
the dawn of time. Out-of-body experience, cosmic consciousness, communion...
there are many interpretations. One of the greatest and least offensive
verbs used to describe this phenomena is inspiration. To be inspired
is arguably the very basis for all human creativity and cultural development."
What you'll find: This environment culminates the evolution
of consciousness. As Tim says, "the return to the Violet Whole at
the center of the galaxy". Here's where we drum and dance--using the
vibrations of sound to experience the quantum reality of waves. And
waves represent our best understanding of the basic structure of existence.
